Signs of cabal defeat are now obvious but, expect one last big push for war

This week’s update from Ben Fulford indicates that real change is happening, all around us. The Bank of England has declared that taxpayers will not be on the hook for failing banks. Also, Ben was part of a panel that discussed a wide variety of formerly taboo subjects, that I hope will be available to the public, soon. -LW

The signs of cabal defeat are now proliferating to an extent that can no longer be hidden from any but the most deeply brainwashed people in the West. The most obvious sign is the APEC meeting winding up today in China. There three of the world’s largest oil producers, Canada, Russia and Qatar signed new deals to trade oil in Yuan. This makes it a mathematical certainty the petrodollar is finished. Russia also announced it was de-pegging the Ruble from the petrodollar.

In England, meanwhile, multiple senior politicians are working towards creating government currency to replace the 300 year old Rothschild fiat currency regime, according to MI5 sources. On November 20th, for the first time in 170 years, the British Parliament will discuss this issue. This is link to a paper on the subject that has been distributed to all British MPs:

https://www.positivemoney.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/Backbench-Briefing-Note.pdf

The Japanese government is also seriously contemplating doing exactly the same thing. This means that all Japanese government debt will be written off in one fell swoop.

There are also indications the corporate government in the United States has gone into full crisis mode. For example, when this writer tried to access the official Russian Ria Novosti news site from his computer and his tablet device, he was redirected to an obvious disinformation site called “Sputnik News.” This came after the Russian government news site put out reports that American mercenaries were shelling the crash site of Malaysian airlines flight 17. This can only be described as an attempt by the American fascist regime to prevent the Europeans from finding out it was their supposed US allies who shot the passenger plane down.

The other sign that something big is going down with the US regime is the fact the Pentagon has warned its troops to not go out with Russian or Chinese women. This is a sort of measure taken in war time to prevent military secrets from leaking out. Finally, CNN has shut down its Russian operations, again the sort of thing that happens in war time.

The Russians, for their part, have started a major push to seize the remaining ethnically Russian districts in the Ukraine as well as the gas fields in the Sea of Azov.

The US corporate government is in no position to win any war against Russia and China at this point in time because neither its NATO allies nor Japan are going to go along with such a suicidal and world-destroying plan.

The more likely outcome will be the overthrow of the US corporate government and the restoration of the Republic of the United States of America.

Another reason for cabal panic is a criminal trial that started on November 10th in London, England where evidence will be presented that the 311 tsunami and nuclear disaster in Japan was a terrorist attack. The trial is being held to determine whether UK lawyer Michael Shrimpton gave false warnings about a nuclear terror threat to the 2012 London Olympics. Here is a link to a Daily Mail article about the trial.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2828974/Barrister-bomb-hoax-calls-Defence-Secretary-claiming-London-2012-Queen-targets-court-hears.html

The defendant has lined up multiple witnesses to bolster his claim that the nuclear terror threat was real and that Japan had already experienced a nuclear terror attack. This writer is scheduled to be one of the witnesses at the trial.

The trial is important because it will bring lots of information that has appeared online under the forensic scrutiny of a criminal court. If the evidence is good, it will then lead to criminal charges eventually being filed against the perpetrators of 311. The Japanese and North Koreans involved in the attack have been offered, and have accepted, amnesty in exchange for providing information about 311.

The trial is expected to be a fair one because there are proliferating signs the UK is freeing itself of cabal influence. The ongoing investigation into a high level pedophile ring there is the clearest evidence of this. British newspapers are now reporting, for example, that Sir Peter Hayman, former Deputy Head of MI6 British foreign intelligence was a pedophile rapist. Investigators into the pedophilia network are particularly interested in cases where pedophilia was used to blackmail politicians and influence government policy.

The other indication is that the British and European dominated Financial Stability Board, an international financial regulator, has come up with regulations to make sure tax payers never again have to bail out “too big to fail” financial institutions like happened after the Lehman shock of 2008. This is clearly aimed at the big US banking institutions that own the Federal Reserve Board and looted US taxpayers in 2008.

Japan is also showing signs of being ready to make a decisive break with the cabal. On November 10th, for example, this writer spent much of the day in a Rupert Murdoch owned TV studio with a group of panelists who were allowed to openly discuss previously taboo subjects. This writer talked about how ebola was a US cabal bio-weapon, that Malaysian Air flight 370 and flight 17 shot down in the Ukraine were the same plane and that ISIS was a creation of Mossad and US intelligence. Other panelists made similar claims. One of them, blogger Richard Koshimizu, talked about a homosexual blackmail network involving senior Japanese politicians.

It remains to be seen how much of this will appear when the show is broadcast after editing but the fact that Murdoch is recording such shows is a sign at least one corporate media oligarch is interested in the truth.

Japan is expected to hold another general election in December that could lead to fundamental regime change, multiple government sources here say. There will be a big fight behind the scenes between the old guard behind Abe and the Japan revolutionary faction over the coming days to decide this issue.

Abe has been damaged in Japan after he was forced promise to stop provoking China and to eat humble pie in in order to get a token meeting with Chinese strongman Xi Jinping.

In North Korea, the US agencies recently secretly helped keep Kim Jong Un in power and prevented the take-over of that country by a Chinese led faction, according to pentagon sources. That is why North Korea released its last two American prisoners.

The Pentagon forces in Asia know that it is the Japanese and Chinese who are paying their bills these days. That is why they have an interest in acting as a peace-keeper in the region.

Rampant financial crime in City of London eroding public trust

Wow! The corrupt banking stories are starting to focus on the City of London–the heart of the central banking cartel. We must be getting close to the end of this chapter…  -LW

In her first public address since adopting the position of BoE Deputy Governor, Nemet Minouche Shafik denounced the actions of UK traders in foreign exchange, currencies and bonds markets, warning financial misconduct in these sectors goes well beyond a few rogue financiers.A top Bank of England (BoE) official warns widespread financial crime in the City of London is eroding public trust. The BoE’s criticism surfaced as it launched a review to tackle market manipulation.

Referencing LIBOR riggers’ behavior as unacceptable, she suggested fines for such fraudulent activity were inadequate and signified “salt rubbed into the wounds to public confidence in financial markets.”

LIBOR (London Interbank Offered Rate) currently determines the cost of up to $350 trillion worth of global financial products. While the 21st century has been littered with financial scandals, Libor rigging by leading global banks has been dubbed the most flagrant in modern history.

Approximately £4 billion worth of fines have been issued for the manipulation of core benchmark rates to date, and the City is expecting further fines for the rigging of currency markets to be publicly announced in November.

Speaking at the London School of Economics (LSE) on Monday, Shafik warned Britain’s financial system is rigged and characterized by disproportionate rewards.

“When people read of malpractice in financial markets, of trading profits being claimed through manipulation, collusion or dishonesty, they naturally wonder if they are one of the people who have been wronged,” she said.

Joel Benjamin, a leading researcher and campaigner at UK ethical finance group Move Your Money is investigating the impact of LIBOR rigging on UK citizens and stakeholders. Benjamin warns such rate manipulation is anything but a victimless crime, and those who have suffered most in its wake remain largely uncompensated.

“The real victims of LIBOR are pension funds, SME’s fraudulently mis-sold interest rate swaps, public authorities with cash investments in the banks, and LOBO loans and PFI contracts where interest repayments increased as LIBOR was rigged lower by the banks,” he told RT on Tuesday.

‘Fix the barrel – to get rid of the bad apples’

Shafik’s address at LSE accompanied the launch of the BOE’s long-awaited review of fixed income, foreign exchange and commodities markets, collectively termed FICC. The results of the Bank’s review, first announced by Chancellor George Osborne in June, are expected to surface following the general election in May 2015.

Commenting on the implications of rate rigging, Osborne warned on Monday that financial integrity is a vital prerequisite for a thriving British economy.

But Benjamin argues Osborne has done little to help small businesses and local authorities that have suffered as a result of such financial crimes.

“Instead of investigating victims of LIBOR fraud and pursuing compensation, George Osborne has handed LIBOR fines to armed forces charities. LIBOR fines should be going to SMEs defrauded by the banks and to fund public services ravaged by austerity cuts borne of the bank bailouts,” he said.

Reflecting on questionable aspects of Britain’s financial sector, the BoE’s deputy governor said the tired argument that financial misconduct relates to the behavior of a “few bad apples” is “no longer credible.” Shafik suggested UK financial regulation lacks efficacy and robustness, and a regulatory overhaul is needed to“fix the barrel and to get rid of the bad apples.”

Responding to the BoE Deputy Governor’s comments, Benjamin told RT the Bank must drive and oversee a dramatic shift in Britain’s regulatory architecture.

“If the Bank of England are serious about changing the culture of British banking, that means ensuring bankers take responsibility for their actions, and that regulators hold criminal behavior to account,” he said.

Benjamin warns that “deferred prosecution agreements” currently deployed under UK law are particularly problematic. Such legislation facilitates banks in avoiding criminal penalties and keeping damning details of fraudulent activity from public knowledge, he argues.

LIBOR rigging is currently illegal under UK law. And the manipulation of currency and gold markets are set to be classified as criminal offences by the end of 2014.

But Benjamin warns political motivation to prosecute bankers responsible for rate rigging remains paltry at best.

“LIBOR was a clear conspiracy to defraud, and should be treated as such under UK law. But there is no political will to prosecute the bankers who provide over 50 percent of party political donations,” he said.

Benjamin argues that the City of London is characterized by a culture of impunity that reinforces the concept “that crime in the City by elites is tolerable and understandable, while crime on the streets is unacceptable – irrespective of personal circumstances and need.”

House Purchases Delayed After Real-time Payment System Goes Offline

Bank of England’s Real Time Gross Settlement payment system, which processes £277bn of money transfers a day including UK house purchases, resumes operations after being down for more than nine hours

By James Titcomb

4:14PM BST 20 Oct 2014

Update: The Bank of England says the system is back online, and that RTGS will remain open until 8pm on Monday ­ four hours later than usual ­ to process the backlog of orders.

CHAPS, which deals with the payments, says: “The Bank of England’s RTGS system is now processing payments again following a resolution of the technical issue experienced earlier today. As such, CHAPS is now processing the backlog of payments and is confident that all payments submitted today will be processed today.”


House purchases and other large transactions were unable to be completed on Monday after the infrastructure that processes large payments between British banks went offline, the Bank of England has said.

The central bank said the “Real Time Gross Settlement Payment System” (RTGS), which settles large transfers between banks, had gone offline at 6am on Monday morning. It remained so until late on Monday afternoon and will stay open until 8pm to deal with a backlog of payments.

The Bank said that the biggest payments were being processed manually and reassured the public that all payments would be on Monday, since the system has the capacity to process a large number of payments when it does go back online.

Smaller payments such as standing orders and direct debits use a different system and were not affected.

The RTGS is set up to settle large payments in real time, rather than at the end of the day, reducing risk.

The system ­ which processes payments such as house purchases ­ went down at 6am on Monday morning. The large banks were contacted early in the day, and the Bank disclosed the fault at around 11.30am.

Jonathan Harris, of the mortgage broker Anderson Harris said the issue could be “hugely inconvenient for buyers”.

“It is hugely fortunate that the Chaps system didn’t collapse on a Friday as this is by far the busiest day of the week for completions. However, with everyone pushing to complete on a Friday there are a proportion of deals which don’t happen ­ maybe 15pc ­ which are pushed back to the following Monday. These are already critical and if they are delayed yet again, it will be hugely inconvenient for buyers,” he said.

“Those in a long chain in particular will feel a cascading effect down the chain with potentially many people affected. Presuming the system is back up and running on Tuesday, then these deals should be able to complete then.”

The Bank of England said: “The Bank of England has identified a technical issue related to some routine maintenance of the RTGS payment system and has paused settlement while we resolve it.”

“We are working to address this issue as quickly as possible, and restart the RTGS payment system in a controlled manner. The most important payments are being made manually and we can reassure the public that all payments made today will be processed.”

The RTGS routes payments made through CHAPS (the Clearing House Automated Payments System), which settles important and time­-sensitive payments, including house purchases.

According to the CHAPS website, it processed £70 trillion of payments last year and is used by 5,000 financial institutions.

A statement from CHAPS said it would be keeping operations running longer than normal on Monday afternoon to ensure that they go through.

” CHAPS is currently liaising with the Bank of England who are working hard to resolve the issue – which means payments submitted today will be processed,” it said.

The system helps keep the day­to­day running of banks going by acting as an intermediary between banks. If a payment is going to be made between banks, RTGS credits the bank receiving the funds quickly, and takes funds from the bank sending money, removing the risk for the receiving bank.

In effect, RTGS sits at the top of the payment structure for banks, as shown by this Bank of England document:

Bank of England

The other major payment system that uses RTGS is CREST, which processes transactions for financial instruments such as shares and bonds. However, CREST is not believed to be affected.

Euroclear, which runs CREST, said: “Euroclear is monitoring the current technical issue with the RTGS system at the Bank of England. We are working closely with the BoE and if necessary will extend our own operational deadlines, to ensure that all settlement and payment instructions will be processed today.”

Around £277bn a day is processed through CHAPS, up from the £254.5bn in 2011:

The financial analyst Lorcan Roche Kelly said the event was “every central bank’s nightmare”.

Financial War Games or Cover for Something Else?

Banks in the US and UK are planning a disaster recovery drill on Monday. What do you think they’re not telling us? Will this be a re-boot of the banks? Will this be the cover story for cleaning-out everybody’s bank account(s), like they did in Cyprus? -LW

Britain and the US will stage the first transatlantic simulation of a crisis in a large bank on Monday, in a sign of growing confidence that the authorities can now deal with the failure of large institutions.

All of the main players who would need to be involved in a failure of companies such as Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, Barclays or HSBC will gather in Washington DC to make sure they would know what to do, who to call and how to inform the public.

The move reflects the authorities’ view that they are getting close to solving the “too big to fail” problem, even for cross-border banks, outside a full-blown system-wide crisis.

George Osborne, UK chancellor, announced he would be taking part in the “war game” along with Jack Lew, US Treasury secretary, Janet Yellen, head of the Federal Reserve, Mark Carney, Bank of England governor and other senior officials from both countries.

The simulation will not mimic any particular banks but the authorities will run through the procedures they would follow if a large UK bank with US operations failed and those for a significant US bank with a British presence. Unlike domestic war games held before the financial crisis, Mr Osborne pledged to publicise the results.

Catholic Pope Threatened as the House of Cards is About to Crumble

It certainly feels like we’re on the brink of something, doesn’t it? 

And Holder? Doesn’t DOJ stand for ‘Department of Obstruction of Justice’?  ~ BP

UNITED States of America   –   It can now be reported that the U.S. NAZI Paperclip NSA occupation government in concert with the NAZI Paperclip dominated Opus Dei (a right wing branch of the Roman Catholic Church) is currently making physical threats against the current Catholic Pontiff Pope Francis.

Note: Both former NSA NAZI Chieftain Michael Hayden and former British Prime Minister and war criminal Anthony Blair are current members of Opus Dei.

Pope Francis is currently shutting down JPMorgan, Royal Bank of Scotland, Barclays Bank, Royal Bank of Canada, Deutsche Bank and Bank of England satellite banking activity that previously used the Vatican Bank to disguise derivative holdings and engage in money laundering.

Reference: The aforementioned banks used the satellite banking activity to use secret undisclosed trading platforms to engage in massive electronic computer-generated algorithm fraud on a nightly basis in the trading of world financial markets.

P.S. At this hour American patriot, current New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, is close to indicting current U.S. Attorney General (worldwide bank stooge) Eric Holder on charges of obstruction of justice in the matter of the cover up of JPMorgan’s role in the B&P financial scandal.

In closing, the worldwide banking cartel is within days of total collapse as recollateralization of derivatives is no longer operative.

There is NO liquidity left with proprietary accounts facing massive margin squeezes.

Financial Defcon Beckons by Tom Heneghan; March 2nd, 2014

Financial collapse is on the horizon—in a GOOD way. Before the new can be born out of the ashes of the old, the old must fall—totally and completely; so I WELCOME a collapse. Only good will come of it. The new, transparent and equitable system is ready and waiting to go live. The Phoenix is rising.  ~ BP

UNITED States of America  –  It can now be reported that Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin has accused the Obama Administration of using the U.S. Nazi Paperclip-Zionist NSA of engineering political psyops in the nation of Ukraine.
 
The psyops are being funded and financed by financial terrorist and Nazi Jew George Soros and the German Deutsche Bank.
 
Soros and the U.S. NSA have been backing an ultra-nationalist party in the Ukraine that are neo-Nazis and regularly hold rallies in which they praise the former German Chancellor Adolf Hitler.
 
The George Soros-NSA destablization of the Ukraine began pre-Sochi Olympics when the NSA controlled CNN network began a propaganda blitz encouraging terrorist attacks at the Russian Sochi winter olympic games.
 
The CNN propaganda blitz was used to disguise the political psyops in the Ukraine.
 
At this hour we can report that the crisis in the Ukraine is setting off more massive worldwide bank asset deleveraging with derivative roll over costs escalating.
 
Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin is enraged after discovering that the U.S. Nazi Paperclip NSA (assisting crooked worldwide banks in bogus algorithm and derivative trading on a nightly basis) secretly parked with an electronic transfer worthless Deutsche Bank, Bank of America, Euro currency dominated derivatives in secret Ukrainian and Hungarian bank accounts (linked to the ECB) and then cross-collateralized them.
 
These cross-collateralized derivatives were then used to destabilize the Russian ruble and finance the political psyops in the Ukraine.
 
At this hour all Ukrainian and Hungarian Deutsche Bank linked secret accounts have been frozen by the IMF.
 
Deutsche Bank now faces financial decapitation with the Bank of England as a counter party.
 
P.S. We can also report that the U.S. Nazi Paperclip NSA has outsourced the monitoring of American citizens cell phones and emails to none other than the Japanese mafia (the Yakuza).
 
The Japanese mafia aka Bakuto gamblers are also assisted by the U.S. NSA in using bogus algorithms to manipulate the Russian ruble and Japanese yen simultaneously.
 
Note: The Japanese mafia has large financial trading accounts tied to U.S. Bank of America.
 
In closing remember the old saying “those in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones”.
 
Reference: The totally illegal and UN-Constitutional U.S. invasion of Iraq by election stealer, nation wrecker, Constitution shredder, U.S. Treasury embezzler, homosexual in the closet, cocaine snorting, AWOL war criminal George W. BushFRAUD that blew a $7 TRILLION hole in the U.S. Treasury.
 
Iraq is currently engaged in a Shiite-Sunni civil war.
 
Question to BushFRAUD: Is the counterfeit or real Iraqi dinar in the Central Bank of the Ukraine or the Central Bank of Japan?
 

Stay tuned.

All Wars are Bankster Wars!

You know what they say…  ‘Always follow the money. Inevitably it will lead to an oak-paneled door and behind it will be Mr Big.’

The following article is from the blog of Susan Lindauer, former federal government Intelligence asset—much maligned whistleblower atExtreme Prejudice’.  Thank you for this fascinating stroll down the annals of history to that ‘oak-paneled door’, Susan.

Here we have confirmation that the banksters have been gambling with OUR money for a very long time. As the owners of the ‘casinos’, however, the House rarely loses, and when it does, they just charge it to their account and let The People assume the debt. 

The Banksters have always controlled the money, the debt, and war, but Lady Luck has stepped out permanently and now they are scrambling to float their sinking money laundering business—rank with fraud and astounding illegal practices.  ~ BP

All Wars are Bankster Wars!

By Michael Rivero

I know many people have a great deal of difficulty comprehending just how many wars are started for no other purpose than to force private central banks onto nations, so let me share a few examples, so that you understand why the US Government is mired in so many wars against so many foreign nations. There is ample precedent for this.

The United States fought the American Revolution primarily over King George III’s Currency act, which forced the colonists to conduct their business only using printed bank notes borrowed from the Bank of England at interest. After the revolution, the new United States adopted a radically different economic system in which the government issued its own value-based money, so that private banks like the Bank of England were not siphoning off the wealth of the people through interest-bearing bank notes.

“The refusal of King George 3rd to allow the colonies to operate an honest money system, which freed the ordinary man from the clutches of the money manipulators, was probably the prime cause of the revolution.” — Benjamin Franklin, Founding Father

Mayer Amschel Rothschild.jpg

Mayer Amschel Rothschild

But bankers are nothing if not dedicated to their schemes to acquire your wealth, and know full well how easy it is to corrupt a nation’s leaders. Just one year after Mayer Amschel Rothschild had uttered his infamous “Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who makes the laws”, the bankers succeeded in setting up a new Private Central Bank called the First Bank of the United States, largely through the efforts of the Rothschild’s chief US supporter, Alexander Hamilton. Founded in 1791, by the end of its twenty year charter the First Bank of the United States had almost ruined the nation’s economy, while enriching the bankers. Congress refused to renew the charter and signaled their intention to go back to a state issued value based currency on which the people paid no interest at all to any banker. This resulted in a threat from Nathan Mayer Rothschild against the US Government, “Either the application for renewal of the charter is granted, or the United States will find itself involved in a most disastrous war.” Congress still refused to renew the charter for the First Bank of the United States, whereupon Nathan Mayer Rothschild railed, “Teach those impudent Americans a lesson! Bring them back to colonial status!” The British Prime Minister at the time, Spencer Perceval was adamantly opposed to war with the United States, primarily because the majority of England’s military might was occupied with the ongoing Napoleonic wars. Spencer Perceval was concerned that Britain might not prevail in a new American war, a concern shared by many in the British government. Then, Spencer Perceval was assassinated (the only British Prime Minister to be assassinated in office) and replaced by Robert Banks Jenkinson, the 2nd Earl of Liverpool, who was fully supportive of a war to recapture the colonies. Financed at virtually no interest by the Rothschild controlled Bank of England, Britain then provoked the war of 1812 to recolonize the United States and force them back into the slavery of the Bank of England, or to plunge the United States into so much debt they would be forced to accept a new private central bank. And the plan worked. Even though the War of 1812 was won by the United States, Congress was forced to grant a new charter for yet another private bank issuing the public currency as loans at interest, the Second Bank of the United States. Once again, private bankers were in control of the nation’s money supply and cared not who made the laws or how many British and American soldiers had to die for it.

Second Bank of the United States

Once again the nation was plunged into debt, unemployment, and poverty by the predations of the private central bank, and in 1832 Andrew Jackson successfully campaigned for his second term as President under the slogan, “Jackson And No Bank!” True to his word, Jackson succeeds in blocking the renewal of the charter for the Second Bank of the United States.

“Gentlemen! I too have been a close observer of the doings of the Bank of the United States. I have had men watching you for a long time, and am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves. I have determined to rout you out, and by the Eternal, (bringing his fist down on the table) I will rout you out!” — Andrew Jackson, shortly before ending the charter of the Second Bank of the United States. From the original minutes of the Philadelphia committee of citizens sent to meet with President Jackson (February 1834), according to Andrew Jackson and the Bank of the United States (1928) by Stan V. Henkels

Shortly after President Jackson (the only American President to actually pay off the National Debt) ended the Second Bank of the United States, there was an attempted assassination which failed when both pistols used by the assassin, Richard Lawrence, failed to fire. Lawrence later said that with Jackson dead, “Money would be more plenty.”
