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.

More on Flight MH17 / MH370, Cleansing and Possible Events to Come [audio]

Thanks, Nick. Some interesting stuff here from Sophia, particularly with respect to MH17 and MH370.

While I don’t personally take biblical prophecy terribly seriously, some do.

Both Sheldan Nidle and Tolec have spoken of severe Earth changes to come, and she mentions Yellowstone.

I guess being on Starship Earth at this time is a roll of the dice. I heard tell there would be thousands of people leaving the planet prior to Ascension in various ways of their souls’ choosing. That, at least, has been and continues to be true.

I prefer to maintain a positive outlook and see the multitude of developments in favour of The People as testament to our awakening and reaffirmation of our personal power.

We have Jews in New York protesting the merciless terrorism in Gaza and I hope it works because when I visited BPEarthwatch and saw the videos there of what’s happening to the Palestinians I had to leave. 

I continue to expect the best, because in each moment we are co-creators of our future, and I abhor spreading doom and gloom, but awareness is important. Besides, inquiring minds want to know!

To that end, I share this audio of a Hagmann and Hagmann interview from July 26th with Dave Hodges.

It’s three hours long, but loaded with intriguing information, analyses and opinion.  They discuss interesting aspects of military personnel movements, the Navy, sonar, deployment of ships, China, the grid, and more from inside sources.

They discuss the UN at the southern US border, agents put on desk duty to make room for the UN personnel to man the entry points… I recall Drake mentioning that if you see blue uniforms, it’s the UN and that’s when it’s time to get worried. He said Americans have nothing to fear from their own military.

These three put a LOT of puzzle pieces in place in short order. Time will tell if they’ve arranged them correctly or not.

Interesting that they have this opinion on the Navy sonar weapons because a petition submitted to stop the sonar testing, and a demand from California and other states to cease this activity was refused and the Navy said they would do whatever they wanted. This might explain their heavy-handed stance on such an important issue.

I only got 30 minutes into the interview so far but it’s fascinating grist for the mill.  ~ BP

 

July 24th update

from Sophia…

I will add another set of information which I received from One, when I asked about number 7.

“This plane crash is a very complicated event, it could have been avoided, but because many here still prefer to understand Creation through violence, this event took place.”

The big play on numbers was done by freemasons of “grand masonic lodge of Washington”, unfortunately People would not find it out for now.

As One told this event was in preparation for a long time and this MH17 and MH370 were meant to start a world war 3.

I was shown information that indeed such preparation is from a long ago as first flight of this plane was made also on 17th of july and in 1997, that is 17 solar cycles ago! Here is a link to this article
Click here.

And like it is said there, TWA Flight 800 crashed as well on 17th july 1996.

And more to this One told me that number 17, repeated several times points to Revelation 17 of the bible, and that is the judgement of a “woman” that is known as “Mystery – Babylon the Great”.

I understand what One meant, as I knew this story and I knew that this “woman” is America.

This prophecy was made long ago and it was not meant as something “unavoidable”, this was meant as a warning to Humanity, that all of this: beast system, mark of the beast, and whole this judgement could be avoided, yet because Humanity chose a path of fulfilling this prophecy through many generations, this is how it will happen partially (not completely).

Not completely, meant that Apocalypse will not take place and United States will not be “destroyed” as it is said there, but whole system and industry of U.S. might be severely damaged, so that illuminati order could be stopped.

Yellowstone awakening would be the first of such strikes to the infrastructure of this government. As well possible is small conflict within U.S. both by People of U.S. and foreign armies. All of this would be meant to liberate this country and stop the plan of illuminati (they were given many chances to surrender, yet they refused).

This warning in Revelation was given by demiurge as I know (as a part of this whole experiment), but One played part in this as well. Demiurge knew that Humanity would choose this path, but One intended Humanity to choose it’s own path and count this only as a possibility. Due to huge influence and fear of these biggest religions the thinking of big judgement and coming “savior” had encoded itself in whole Human Society.

We are awaiting for Moment of Justice or this Judgement of Revelation, what I can say for sure, is that with this plane tragedy, it is now even closer. Illuminati families are responsible for all People from plane that passed away. The whole plane scenario is now playing negatively on illuminati and U.S. government, People around the world are losing trust in these entities and so they are falling apart. Their allies are abandoning them and their lies are becoming more obvious with each passing moment of time.

As You remember after this Judgement will come “Savior”, this is meant here that a New World will be born.

133 G77 Nations Vow to Destroy America’s New World Order

Thanks for this great piece, Drake.

Man… we are making some HEADWAY here, my friends!  The news we’re getting these days is leaps and bounds ahead of where it was a year—or even a few months ago. The truth is coming out and nothing can stop it.

As I’ve said before, the entire world knows what’s going on in the USA, who is behind it, the sleight-of-hand they’re trying to pull off, why, and they’re fed up and not going to take it any more. We are ALL going to be FREE!

This strategic alliance is seeing to it that the nations of Starship Earth are about to oust the Illuminati once and for all, and the drowsy masses are slowly waking up to it. We don’t need no stinkin’ lamestream media. Their gig is nearly up. We’ve got this.

I heard that this summer is going to be gangbusters… and that’s literally what will be going on, so strap yourselves in! Wheeee!!!!!!!! ~ BP

June 17, 2014. Bolivia. The American and European media are doing everything they can to black this news out. But it’s not going to stay a secret for long. As of this weekend, there’s a new New World Order on Earth and its enemy is the United States, the EU, the UN Security Council and the world’s shadow government led by the IMF and WTO. This new alliance of poor countries wouldn’t be much of a threat, except it includes two-thirds of the world’s nations including China and India.

It’s a sad day for the American people when their government and state-sponsored news industry blacks out such an important news story. Americans actually have to rely on outlets like the Havana Times in Cuba, The Times of India, and United Nations press releases. There’s a reason this news is being censored across the West. And it’s only the latest global news story over the past two weeks on this subject blacked out from the American people.  Read on to find out why.

 

End of the New World Order

When the richest and most powerful nations on Earth formed the G7, G8, G20 and the like, they united to combine their dominance over the remaining 175 countries that make up humanity. And for decades, the wealthiest 20 countries led by the US have gotten exponentially more wealthy at the expense of the poorest 175 nations, who in turn have gotten even poorer. That’s been the result of the West’s ‘New World Order’, led mainly by self-appointed global governments like the International Monetary Fund and the World Trade Organization.

133 of those 175 countries have had enough of the New World Order’s rigged global financial system based in New York and London. They’ve seen their economies destroyed by corrupt corporations and global governments that create a cycle of never-ending dependence and poverty.  They’ve seen their nations’ vast resources stolen by multinational corporations. Their agriculture landscape has been poisoned. Their citizens bankrupted by the IMF and Wall Street. And their democratically elected leaders overthrown by foreign agents from countries like the US.

They’ve had enough of the New World Order. And an alliance of 133 countries, two-thirds of the nations on Earth, signed an agreement this weekend to end the West’s New World Order and replace it with a fair, honest and legitimate World Order – one that lets everyone participate and benefit, not just the super rich.

The Next World Order

The organization is officially called the ‘Group of 77 and China’, but the alliance actually includes 133 nations. Showing just how much influence they have, their meeting this weekend in Bolivia was opened with a keynote speech by United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. In the audience were over 30 heads of state from around the world and official representatives from over 100 more governments. Also illustrating the organization’s growing influence, China isn’t even a member of the G77, but insisted on participating anyway in a show of unity with the globe’s Next World Order.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro participated, telling the gathered nations they had to unite to, “fight for fair and sustainable economic growth and for a new world economic order.” Ecuadorian President Rafael Correa went one step further, telling the gathered national leaders and representatives, “Only when we are united across Latin America and united around the world will we be able to make our voice heard and change an international order that is not just unfair, it is immoral.”

A report from AFP on Yahoo News, about the only report found in Western media, describes how Cuban President Raul Castro also participated, but reserved his comments for a call to help their top ally Venezuela. Cuba, Venezuela, Bolivia and a number of South American countries have insisted they are currently under attack by the United States and the CIA, who they insist are desperately trying to orchestrate coups to overthrow their democratically elected, pro-socialist governments the same way they are accused of doing in the Ukraine recently.

Iran and the UN

An announcement published by the United Nations this weekend touts UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon’s enthusiastic participation in the G77 meeting. It discusses how important this massive alliance is to the goals of the UN, particularly with regard to reversing the world’s growing economic inequality among nations. Moon and the UN are also sponsoring a separate but related meeting of nations in September to draft new climate resolutions to be enacted in 2015.

The announcement describes a private meeting between the UN Secretary General and Iran’s Vice President, ‘On the margins of today’s summit, Mr. Ban met with the First Vice President of Iran, Eshaq Jahangiri, to discuss development issues, as well as the potential role that Iran could play in restoring stability in Iraq and Syria. The Secretary-General added that he looked forward to Iran’s positive involvement on climate change and said he very much hoped that President Hassan Rouhani would attend the climate summit this September.’ The report also says the two leaders discussed Iran’s nuclear ambitions and the coming July deadline for compliance with past mandates.

Threats of America’s “second Vietnam”

Many of the government leaders in attendance took the opportunity to strike a blow against what they consider to be the biggest enemy of world peace, democracy and economic freedom – the United States. One leader even went as far as calling out President Obama by name and threatening the United States with a second Vietnam.

As reported by the Times of India, the G77 conference’s host this weekend – Bolivian President Evo Morales – threatened the United States and the American President telling the gathered heads of state, “If Mr. Obama keeps assailing the people of Venezuela, I am convinced that, faced with provocation and aggression, Venezuela and Latin America will be a second Vietnam for the United States. Let us defend democracy, natural resources, our sovereignty and our dignity.”

Cuba’s President Raul Castro was possibly the most pointed and focused in his remarks regarding the agenda of the participating countries. As reported by the Havana Times, Castro told the alliance of 133 nations, “It is necessary to demand a new international financial and monetary order and fair commercial conditions for producers and importers from the guardians of capital, centered in the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank, and from the defenders of neoliberalism grouped in the World Trade Organization, which are attempting to divide us. Only unity will allow us to make our ample majority prevail.”

UN Civil War – dissolving the UN Security Council

One of the more ambitious goals of the G77 and its 133 participating countries is the elimination of the United Nations Security Council. World leaders insist it is little more than a five-nation tyranny over the full UN body. With five permanent members of the UN Security Council having veto power over the rest, UN policies and actions have been dictated by those five countries – US, UK, Russia, France and China. Members of the G77 want the Security Council eliminated so the UN can go back to being a purely democratic body.

The Cuban leader went on to describe a global economic system run by American hypocrisy and financial corruption, “The principles of International Law and the postulates of the New International Economic Order are brazenly violated, concepts that attempt to legalize meddling are imposed, force is used and threats of force are made with impunity, the media are used to promote division.”

Dominoes beginning to fall

This is just the latest organized attack on a global financial system rigged by corrupt governments and the multinational corporations that control them. Just last month, Russia and China signed a long term trade alliance that represents the first major crack in the US Dollar bubble. The two countries agreed to stop using US Dollars in their transactions and instead use their own two currencies. The two largest banks from both countries immediately announced they would be dumping the US Dollar as well.

On top of that, the world’s ‘BRIC’ countries – Brazil, Russia, India and China – have publicly declared their goal of replacing the corrupted US Dollar with some other global default currency. Now that Russia and China have finally taken actual steps to do that, the remaining two-thirds of the world will most likely begin making preparations to stop using the US Dollar as well. It was only this weekend that 133 of them pledged to do just that.

The scary part for Americans is that both Washington and Wall Street have promised this would never happen, because if it did, it would destroy the US economic system and possibly the US itself. Read the Whiteout Press article, Russia-China Deals move US Dollar closer to Collapse’ for more information.

Lecture from former US Military Bob Dean on the Extraterrestrial Coverup [video]

Thanks to the crew at Syncrenicity for sharing. Click the link to read more.

Here is one of my very favourite whistleblowers, Bob Dean, delivering another riveting lecture from the UK.  I haven’t yet watched this, but they said it was new, while some say it’s old. It will be new to me, I think.

When you hear it from the mouths of astronauts, cosmonauts and ex-military with “Cosmic Clearance”… it gives it an extra twist of credibility. I wonder how many people “got it” after listening to Bob’s testimony over the years… ~ BP

Something Huge Just Happened and the Mainstream Media Is Ignoring It

Thanks Drake/Gramy J for sharing on Cosmic Voice FB.

To the average person, it would seem inconceivable that the lamestream media would simply leave this out, but it’s not in the government’s favour to air developments like this, so… silence ensues.

This happened end of March/beginning of April.

(Can you imagine what it will be like when the media actually tells us what’s going on?!)

Apparently the required number of states have now filed for “Constitutional Convention”.

If I recall correctly what I read recently, over the years it was very close, and two or three states subsequently reversed, but apparently reversals are not recognized or something to that effect, so now they’ve theoretically reached critical mass, and may possibly be legally in a position to do what needs to be done to take the country back, break free of the rogue federal government and make positive changes by mandate of The People and create a new Constitution that serves The People rather than the government—it’s original intent.

So, while we may need a magnifying glass to see some of what is going on behind the scenes, things ARE happening—albeit at a glacial pace—but the cabal is losing ground and the Light forces are advancing strongly on several fronts. 

I recommend reading the entire article.  ~ BP

 

 

April 7, 2014

You may be aware of Mark Levin’s book “The Liberty Amendments” released last year which called for a “Convention of the States”. Article 5 of the Constitution gives the several states the ability to convene a convention in which the Constitution may be amended, changed, or even scrapped.

The most important political development in 200 years was triggered last week, when the state legislature of Michigan became the 34th state to demand a “Constitutional Convention” in the United States. Under Article 5 of the US Constitution, if 2/3rds of the states call for such a convention, (meaning 34 states) it MUST take place.

During such a convention, the ENTIRE Constitution can be changed; nothing is off-limits. This would even allow the States to dismantle the federal government without its consent, and repudiate the debt which that government has incurred! When it voted for the convention last week, Michigan became the 34th state, thus meeting the requirement.

A goal has been reached behind what would be an unprecedented effort to amend the U.S. Constitution, through a little-known provision that gives states rather than Congress the power to initiate changes. This is the most significant political development in the entire world in the last 200 years.

At issue is what’s known as a “constitutional convention,” a scenario tucked into Article V of the U.S. Constitution. At its core, Article V provides two ways for amendments to be proposed. The first – which has been used for all 27 amendments to date – requires two-thirds of both the House and Senate to approve a resolution, before sending it to the states for ratification. The Founding Fathers, though, devised an alternative way which says if two-thirds of state legislatures demand a meeting, Congress “shall call a convention for proposing amendments.”

The idea has gained popularity among constitutional scholars in recent years — but got a big boost last week when Michigan lawmakers endorsed it.

Michigan matters, because by some counts it was the 34th state to do so. That makes two-thirds.

In the wake of the vote, California Republican Rep. Duncan Hunter pressed House Speaker John Boehner on today to determine whether the states just crossed the threshold for this kind of convention. Like Michigan lawmakers, Hunter’s interest in the matter stems from a desire to push a balanced-budget amendment — something that could be done at a constitutional convention.

Disappearing Planes are Nothing New to the Playbook: Korea Air Flight 007 [video]

I hope the more resistant people are beginning to get the picture. The events unfolding on our planet are not new—we’re just waking up and seeing them for the first time for what they are.

The same old tricks that worked to further the agenda in the past are used again and again—because they work SO WELL!

Hand-in-hand with their trusty lamestream media, they got away with murder,  so it their sly little tactic goes in the playbook as a potential strategy to be used again as it suits them.

Here’s the tale of Korea Air Flight 007. See any similarities to Malaysian Flight 370?  Still think the plane is “lost”? That they can’t find it? That they don’t know where to look? 

You may come to the realization that virtually NOTHING that happens on Earth is by chance. And you would be right.  ~ BP

 

From BrasscheckTV:

They wouldn’t kill a plane full of people just to achieve some subterranean agenda, would they?

Oh yes they would. And they like doing it in Asia.

Another Oliver North production?

It was a massive shock when it happened and could have easily led to war.

Fortunately, it didn’t.

Unfortunately for the passengers of Korea Air 007, it was their last flight and their last day on earth.

What really happened?

It’s not a mystery, but the US news media did a good job – as they always do – of making it into one.

Benjamin Fulford Update for March 3, 2014 on the Exchange of Nuclear Threats

By all means heed Bill’s advice below about accepting the way things play out. We can effect control of events with our thoughts, and I’m willing to bet our peace meditation just now went a long way to resolving many issues both in the Ukraine and without. We’re so close now and the global elite and their energies just don’t fit in any more. There’s no place for them here.

Fear not, and forge ahead with the best and strongest of intentions for a peaceful outcome in favour of The People of Earth. We can do this.  Jolly good.  ~ BP

Updated 3/4/2014 33 Dead on Train in China killed by attackers 

Use higher discernment with what is below.  The “cabal” may dream up crazy plots but it doesn’t mean that Eternal Essence in each in-body-ment is going to allow it to happen.  They just tighten the noose on their inbodyment and foreclose on themselves energetically. 

One item pops out,  Nara Japan.  The Nara clan is the esoteric branch of the Dragon society, known as the “shadow workers” (spiritual ninjas), historically they have been the ones who built the Shinto temples and service the Shinto goddess “Benten” which Fulford has mentioned on many occasions HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.    -AK

Benjamin Fulford – March 3, 2014: Secret cabal surrender negotiations continue as their Ukraine bluff is called after an exchange of nuclear threats

The high-stakes geopolitical poker game that began with the recent events in the Ukraine culminated in secret with cabal threats to have “Ukraine nuke Russia using US made nukes,” resulting in counter-threats to nuke Washington D.C., New York, Tel Aviv, Brussels and London, according to White Dragon Society sources involved in the negotiations. The cabal then scaled down the nuclear threats and instead threatened to create a “Rothschild ring of fire around China and Russia,” starting with “10 ‘Muslims’ killing 33 people on a train in China” and warning that “US funded attacks” will “sky rocket,” the sources said. This blustering is all a form of cabal table pounding and posturing for better treatment in their ongoing surrender negotiations.

Under the surface, former US President Bill Clinton, a relative of the Emperor of Japan and US Ambassador to Japan Caroline Kennedy offered to help cash a series of Kennedy gold backed bonds as seen below:

Kennedy bonds

on behalf of the WDS in exchange for continued funding of the United States of America Corporation.
They were told the WDS would only act if usable liquid funds were deposited into the White Dragon Foundation bank account. If that were to happen, the WDS would act in total transparency according to the law and the will of the people of the world.

The Chinese communist government and the Vatican also contacted the WDS last week to discuss the possibility of unifying Asian states into some sort of single entity. The suggestion was made that it might be possible if a new capital was created somewhere like Laos or Nara Japan so that all parties would be able to save face by being part of creating something new instead of feeling like they lost to Beijing or another power bloc.

The Vatican P2 lodge says this is part of a push to create a world federation of governments. In their vision a “world federation of equals” was needed to prevent World War 3 and to prepare for human expansion into the universe.

However, according to them, “The Khazarians under Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu” continue to suffer from “Zionist delirium,” and are refusing to give up their dream of starting World War 3 so that they can become a “master race,” that enslaves the rest of humanity.

The long term scenario planned by their Nazi/Zionist military leader George Bush Sr. now unfolding in the Ukraine calls for a second “Iron Curtain,” according to MI5 sources. In this scenario, after the EU takes half of Ukraine, the Russians will “use this as an act of provocation pushing blitzkrieg style as far into Europe as possible before proposing the boundary for the New Iron Curtain.” If the Ukraine scenario escalates, then Secretary of Skull and Bones Kerry and Putin have been playing roles dictated by Bush Sr., the MI5 source says. “This is a classic Hegelian move by the cabal to set up a problem and, in providing the solution, steal all the assets,” he continues. Thus he says “It looks like the EU will be sacrificed as a new martial law is imposed exactly as in the militarized zones post WWII,” he added. This plan would need China’s cooperation initially to allow Russia to mobilize in Europe. However, after this scenario was used to militarize Europe, the next move would be for this militarized Europe to attack China, the WDS has warned the Chinese.

The other part of this Nazi/Zionist plan calls for the birth of a Caliphate in the Middle East as part of an encirclement of Russia and China from the Caucasus to Turkey, and from Syria to Iraq and Iran, not to mention the Chinese Uighur Muslims. Under this plan, the US will not play much of an aggressive military role in these changes but instead would prepare the US homeland for the internment of large numbers of the population. This will come after the collapse of international trade causes immediate cash, food and gasoline shortages especially in the US, the MI5 sources say.

The Gnostic Illuminati confirm the MI5 picture in part by saying that in addition to the ongoing turmoil in the Ukraine, big moves are being planned in Turkey and Thailand. The move in Turkey would be aimed at reducing Russian control of gas pipelines while the Thai trouble is aimed at reducing Asian control of gold supplies.

These geopolitical chess “games” by criminally insane gangsters result in the deaths of countless innocent people, which is why the WDS is fighting to end them once and for all.

The WDS has proposed a very different scenario from the Nazi/Zionist cabal nightmare future planned by Fuehrer Bush, madman Netanyahu and their fellow Satan worshipping cabalists.

If the WDS is able to cash the Kennedy bonds pictured above (which are fake according to MI5) or otherwise get usable funding from the dollar and Euro based Western central banking system, it proposes a massive campaign to turn the deserts green, replenish the oceans with fish, explore space etc. The plan would start with Operation Santa Claus, a major push to end poverty and stop environmental destruction.

Of course, to carry out such a plan, new institutions will have to be created to replace or revamp the dysfunctional cabal institutions like the IMF, the World Bank and the United Nations.

Given all the different bonds, Federal Reserve Board boxes and other items of paper containing astronomical numbers of dollars that have been presented to this writer but can never be cashed because the Feds keep coming up with different excuses, it may be necessary to take more drastic action.

For one, the Feds and the cabalists have talked about astronomical amounts of gold (many decimal points more in value than official world gold reserves), without offering an ounce of proof it really exists. Despite trips to Korea, the Philippines, China, etc. to talk about hidden treasure, the only real treasure this writer has confirmed to exist is the one buried in the mountains behind the treasure museum in Taipei, China. It is becoming increasingly obvious the Western system of privately owned central banks is a massive, 300-year old Ponzi scheme.

It may thus be necessary to shut down the entire global central bank computer networks of ATMs, credit cards etc. and reboot the system minus all the cabalists’ fraudulent numbers. This would entail handing out enough cash to everybody for two weeks or so of essential supplies and the use of hand-written account books until, a new system based on real things like land, commodities, factories, precious metals etc. can be booted up.

In the meantime watch as senior cabalists vanish one by one.
