Greeks Run to the IMF: Why the Germans Are Not in Charge of the EU
Greece dispatches officials to U.S., default fears grow ... Greece sent senior officials to Washington on Monday for meetings with the International Monetary Fund as it raced against the clock to break a deadlock in debt swap talks that has raised fears of an unruly default. Barely a month after an injection of bailout funds helped avert bankruptcy, Greece is back at the centre of the euro zone crisis as fears of a default and a subsequent euro zone exit overshadow a mass credit downgrade of euro zone countries. Cash-strapped Athens needs a deal with the private sector within days to avoid going bankrupt when 14.5 billion euros of bond redemptions fall due in late March. But talks with its creditor banks broke down on Friday over the interest rate and a plan to enforce investor losses and are not expected to resume until Wednesday. Greece put a brave face on the standoff. "There is a little pause in these discussions," Greek Prime Minister Lucas Papademos told CNBC television. "But I am confident that they will continue and we will reach an agreement that is mutually acceptable in time." – Reuters
Dominant Social Theme: The Germans created the EU and Nazis run it.
Free-Market Analysis: Here, again, we see that the top elites are doing as they see fit and anyone who continues to maintain that there is some sort of schism between Europe, London and Washington is likely exaggerating what's taking place.
The IMF is a creature of the Anglosphere and has been intimately involved in various sovereign debt talks, not just with Greece but also with Spain, Italy and Portugal. The IMF is also a prime methodology of Anglosphere power elite control.
It was created in the 1940s by prime socialist-elite economist John Maynard Keynes along with the hugely wealthy scion of the leading US dynasty, David Rockefeller. Anyone who believes in an "Anglosphere" power-elite schism between America/London and Europe will have to explain how these two cooperated to build the current, expanding world-economic structure.
What seems to us irrefutable is that there IS a power elite, probably based out the City of London with elements in the Vatican, Washington DC and Tel Aviv. The core of this elite is a group of families, apparently, that control central banks around the world. This gives them access to tens and even hundreds of trillions of dollars.
If one controls, basically, all the money in the world it's not that hard to build world government if that is what one desires. And apparently, these powerful families and their enablers and associates DO want that. The bigger the government, the more power they have.
This group manifests control via mercantilism, by moving governments in the direction they chose behind the scenes. They actually use what is called the Hegelian Dialectic to achieve this direction. That is, they manufacture phony controversies and then resolve them via solutions of their choosing. Over time, they can seemingly manufacture any consensus they wish.
Of course, it was a lot easier in the 20th century than the 21st. That's because of something we call the Internet Reformation. The Renaissance, Reformation and even the Enlightenment were, in our view, the proximate cause of the Gutenberg Press (along with "blowback") and the information it released to the public about the Way the World Really Works. The Internet is generating the same sort of insights today.
As part of the Internet's enormous impact on people's knowledge base – and how they are manipulated – there has sprung up a thriving industry of Internet "false flags." These are mostly what are called "limited hangouts" that attempt to conflate real information about the world's structure and manipulation with various kinds of misinformation.
The world is run by central banks, we are informed, but these central banks are in turn run by, say ... aliens from outer space. You see? The idea is to discredit the entire concept of central bank control and also the alternative media elements that espouse it.
Another kind of false flag, in our view, is the idea that the power elite is terminally riven by factionalism. We will grant, of course, that those who espouse this view (the late departed free-market economist Murray Rothbard included) can be both sincere and well-motivated in advancing this sort of perspective. But, false-flag or no, it seems to us to confuse what is taking place rather than to clarify it.
The elites work on a grand scale and building world government is not possible if one grants sustained and considerable in-fighting. In fact, when one looks at the elite's larger dominant social themes (as we call them), the clarity of purpose and determination seems unmistakeable.
These themes (fear-based promotions, really) are attempts to frighten middle classes into giving up wealth and power to globalist institutions such as the UN, IMF and World Bank. They are ubiquitous. One call easily identify them by their insanity and by the enthusiasm with which they are promoted nonetheless.
So many of these elite memes span both Europe, Britain and the US (not to mention the developing world) that in our view it is difficult to argue they are amiably promoted by all factions of the power elite.
Global warming, the dollar reserve currency, Peak Oil, water and food scarcity, vaccine effectiveness, pharmaceutical efficiency, the war on terror, the evil of Islamic fundamentalism, the IMF as the world's central bank, the coming regionality of the world (various unions in Africa, the Americas, etc.) – all these and more seem to us to be examples of elite themes that are promoted universally. We don't see any factionalism here.
But there is more. And it has to do with labeling. As we have long argued in these pages, to call the current evolution of the New World Order "Zionist" is to misrepresent what is taking place.
Zionism is a term of linguistic art describing a group of people, mostly Jewish, who wanted to create a Jewish state. Creating a Jewish state (in Palestine or elsewhere) has little to do with a larger New World Order.
What we have argued is that a better explanation for what is going on would be to call the current state of affairs by its real name: Organized International Crime. What has happened in the West during the past 300 years or so is that a kind of mafia ("Jewish" if you need a nomenclature) has gradually taken over, funded by gushing gouts of central banking money.
This mafia or "cartel" operates EXACTLY in the way that organized crime operates, only it does so on a global level. Just as the Italian American mafia attempted to intimidate individuals in certain neighborhoods into paying "protection" money, so the current group of internationalist criminal families intimidate whole nations by creating phony wars and staged conflicts.
But don't mafias have factions? Well, yes, they do. But history also shows that one of the biggest and most extensively examined mafias – the Italian-American mafia – eventually formed a grand council that attempted on a regular basis to work out difficulties while planning for the future. This made sense, after all, because it was "good for business."
And it makes sense to us. The mafia – organized crime – paradigm seems like a good model on which to extrapolate. Not only because it has roots in perceived reality but because it provides us with actual information about how these systems work. They are NOT free-for-alls. They are business-like affairs tinged (and occasionally consumed) by violence.
There are doubtless factions to the power elite. But at its root it is a simple affair. They all want the same thing, all the players – control over the world, formal control. World government. That's the goal. Why wouldn't it be? To create a global legal fiction would lead to the greatest power that a handful of individuals have ever possessed.
Which brings us back to Europe. It does seem as if London, Europe and even the US are fighting over the EU's future and influence. But we are skeptical as to how deep these factions run. We think it's just more fodder for the alternative media to grind away at. The powers-that-be behind this experiment know exactly where it is headed and how it is to get there. That doesn't mean they'll achieve their goals, of course, but they're certainly going to try.
And what is their goal when it comes to the EU? Well, one goal has surely been achieved, which is to create an international crisis that will allow a centralized element (Brussels) to assume more power over vassal states – not just Greece, but Spain, Portugal, even France, eventually.
Will Germany be exempt from this gathering in of power? We doubt it. Currently, Germany is seen as the winner in the Euro-stakes. But if one accepts that the prize is world domination, then Germany itself is not going to be the winner. World government is.
Will world government then be dominated by German "Nazis" – as some regularly argue on the Internet – based on historical documents that seem to indicate that the soon-to-be defeated leaders of the Third Reich contemplated a quasi-European Union? We take an opposing position.
In fact, put into this context, it seems to us that the looniness of the question becomes self-evident. It is not "Nazis" that seek to run the world, but profoundly evil men, sociopaths, if you will. Political nomenclature has little or nothing to do with it. And without the active acquiescence of London's City, we doubt much gets done.
Of course, it is difficult to fully analyze what is taking place with any sense of certainty. We are blind men feeling the extremities of the elephant. One describes the elephant by the way the trunk feels, another by how the tail appears, etc. The trick, therefore, is not to fall into this trap.
Use the elements of historical human control to figure out as best possible what is taking place. Illuminism, anti-Semitism, Zionism – these are merely words and faux "magik" that obscure the reality of the criminal mafia operating at the heart of the world's troubles.
Analyze the reality of the world's nascent mechanism of globalism – the UN and its appendages including NATO and the new International Criminal Court – and it will soon become clear that when it comes to the building blocks of global government there is considerable consensus.
That goes for the European Union, too. There may be stresses and strains along the way – and arguments over financial interests and who loses and who wins in certain cases. But the larger picture is that this group (however it is composed) evidently and obviously controls central banking (for now anyway) and the resultant Money Power of hundreds of trillions.
Conclusion: Surely, (and no matter what happens to the EU) it is difficult to visualize the world's top men arguing over the disposition of a bank and its profits (or losses) when one keeps the bigger picture in mind.

BTW, are China (1.3 billion people), India (1 billion people) and Russia (148 million people) also part of this Anglo/American monetary elite... ???
If not, they will nevertheless be happy to submit themselves to the dictates of the new World government run by the Anglo/American elite, right... ???
Just asking... ... ..

Well, I am reminded of the schoolyard where the most athletic, particularly bullies, would hang together and belittle and generally try to dominate.
Later as adolescents realize that as a group they have power (particularly ostracism)pressure is somewhat brought to bear against bullies who usually realize at some point that they have behaved wrongly. But as motives change the importance of alliance has been learned and shared goals continue to drive group behavior.
Of course there could possibly be a "Carrie" ending.
Oh never mind.

"Therefore go to Hell with your Germans: "Natural born killers" Schizophrenic compulsive mythomaniacs and psychotic Munchausen- ians swindlers dirty trash Kraut ambulant barrel beer !!"
Don't you worry, alexesemen! A German senior krautbarrel official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, confirmed to me in private that the entire German psychotic tribe will leave this stinking planet on Dec. 21 with their giant barrel-spaceship which is currently buried deep in the Antarctic. On this day, as the elders prophesied so wisely, the Germans will head to a heretofore undisclosed location (planet) to start their nasty ploy anew. Gee, guess who managed to reserve a first class cabin at the very last minute ...
You may long for the day to come, now knowing the full truth, however, the catch is that planet Earth was not designed to withstand the unprecedented amount of Raw German Power (RGP) emitted by the barrel-spaceship when it launches finally, i.e. you are all doomed.
So, relax & enjoy the remaining days ... Auf Wiedersehen!

I know I'm getting in on this very late, but I wanted to comment on your theory that a "tiny population" could not be in a position to be "masters".
In my opinion, whoever is controlling the system of central banking--regardless of their race, religion, ethnocity, or whatever--are positioning themselves to be masters of the world.
Look at the situation in Europe for example. Technocrats are usurping the power of the duly elected "democratic" rulers. Technocrats are the tools of central banking. And, of course, I should point out that the "duly elected" terminology is misleading, as well.
The CIA incites unrest. The military goes in. A central bank is established. And the resources are drained off.
Hooray! The bond sales in Europe are going well. Another crisis averted. Where is all the money coming from?
Think about it.
The central banks are the "tax collectors". They work for those who comprise the "Power Elite". The system is firmly in place and becoming more and more invasive. If they can keep the system from collapsing on itself, it will continue its cancerous growth.
All this and I haven't even had my first cup of coffee! Sorry state of affairs!

chad2, well said. When the secularists actually see they are part of the great deception it will be too late. This is all written, most now scoff and ignore.
I have ceased to debate what is written, I just accept it. For acceptance gives the strength to fight the evil. If a few more directed their energy to fighting instead of debating, well, in my humble opinion, it would not have got as far.

I think you're flying a partially false flag definition, Bob.
I am not sure of the origins of the term "Master Race," but it sounds like something out of the pages of Friedrich Nietzsche, the German philosopher who got into the whole master-slave issue vis-a-vis Christians (he called it a religion of slaves) and the ancient Romans (the Masters).
Given the sorry history and tiny population that is Jewish... I would be more inclined to look to India or China. Though in terms of Empire and colonies, the British have historically been the best at being a "Master Race" and creating a "New World Order" (colonial). For size and reach, the tiny island territory of Great Britain has surpassed Genghis Khan, Rome, the Ottoman Empire, the Austro-Hungarian Empire, and even the Russians. Jewish people rate a footnote.

Bob, I assume you have not read the endless discussions I had with the DB on this topic over the last few months... But thanks for pointing this out.
At this point, I am tired of what I consider to be mostly a semantic exercise, and I am willing to call it "Jewish Mafia" or "Jewish Supremacism" when commenting on the topic on the DB. It does save time and energy...

No, it is just "a half truth". The real purpose & objective of Zionism is to create a "Master Race" to govern & manage the "New World Order"!

This is just the point.
1. Where is this written down?
2. "Who" decided on the term?
3. "Who" are the "Zionists."
The questions are endless. Once you go down this rabbit hole, you never come back up.
Call it what it is. A global, criminal exercise that USES religion and historical symbolism, exploits them and probably has for hundreds of years.
Use the term Zionism, and you are only ENHANCING an obvious dominant social theme - a fear-based promotion featuring anti-Semitism, and one cleverly prepared over the past 50-75 years.
You think you are being courageous using the term "Zionism." In fact you are using a word that has no meaning for many people, implies racial prejudice for many others and is not, in any case, descriptive of ANYTHING.

Germans are nationalitic tribes; they stick to-gether and they know how to disciplined organizations in action. Remember the Weimar Republic and the Pusch or Adolf Hitler.When Germany was in Finantial difficulties and how they cleared they difficulties with Reichs Mark. "Butter or Bombs" brought the Germany back in Power. They have National Disciplin, even right now they still Work and Sparen for the future. What America is building -WELFARE?
America is 'Ex Pluribum Unum'! That's all the unwanted brits (Georgia colony -penal colony), all the deported Ukrainians, Polish and the rest of Eastern Europien slaves including the starving Irish came for bread.All African slaves, are still calling themselves Afro-American will never build "One Nation". We can't stand Jews or Nazi or Italian Mafia, or Mexican Pachucos. Now the muslims are ripping the world appart.Forget about Jesus here are more who believe in Mahomed.
Remember the apples don't fall too far from the tree. And we have many rotten trees in the 50 states

Gary Kinghorn over at TDV provides an apt outline, in my humble view:
"My theory, consistent with Gary North's book, shows that at different levels all of these secret organizations have supported a single grand conspiracy throughout recorded history. That conspiracy is designed to build a totalitarian system where men rule over other men (and women), replacing our God-given rights with a system of tyranny and feudal overlords. It is the vision of men supplanting the role of God, with the technology to extend life, travel the stars, and perfect the human design. This was the original promise given to Eve in the Garden of Eden when the serpent said, 'ye shall be like gods'. It is the 'Ancient Promise' followed throughout the ages by various religious orders, ancient cultures and secret societies. It is based on Satan's arrogance that he could usurp the throne of God, and design a world based on the forced subjugation of the weak to the more powerful, rather than free will worship and the unalienable rights of all men.
The overarching conspiracy is today termed 'The New World Order', a world government of totalitarian design with the control of all resources and a single world currency in the hands of the few. It is the agenda we are being slowly brought towards. Luciferian by design, it has been coordinated in secret throughout history, until we find ourselves on the verge of the vision becoming a reality. The minor conspiracies we see today, including the currently-engineered economic collapse, are mere subplots to the one grand plan."

"Creating a Jewish state has little to do with a larger New World Order."
I disagree. In the thinking of the Cryptocracy, such a policy is essential. The Cryptocracy controls via the dialectic, always having a piece of both (or all) sides in any significant conflict. If there is only one side, another must be invented or created, so that conflict can occur. Out of conflict, viola! a new order. Given the geopolitical and strategic importance of the middle east, due to its oil, and the obsessive dialectical psychology of the Cryptocracy, the creation of an entity like Israel was almost inevitable.
The rest of the article was spot on. Many friends of mine are stuck in the meme of religion for those wielding power, "Bush is a Christian." "Obama is really a Muslim." Horse hockey. No one gets to that position whose religion is anything but POWER.
DB, I relish your feedback and analysis.

DB: "Just as the Italian American mafia attempted to intimidate individuals in certain neighborhoods into paying "protection" money, so the current group of internationalist criminal families intimidate whole nations by creating phony wars and staged conflicts."
Yes, but does a typical mafia/triad/yakuza organization attempt to influence beliefs and worldviews on a grand scale? Does it attempt to control science, art and culture?
If this is a "mafia", it is a "meta-mafia" which is clearly also animated by ideological concerns and long-range teleological goals. In the end, money is just a means, and mercantilism is just a method (even if it is a very important one). So the comparison with a typical mafia is only valid up to a certain point.
As for "Zionism"/"Jewish Mafia", I am not (for once) in total disagreement with the DB, except to reiterate (and it is an important point) that this "Zionist/Jewish supremacist" ideology has been around for several centuries, if not millenia, and that "Jews" (however one wishes to define the term) have been expelled from dozens of countries, including before the beginning of the common era.
Regarding the factions among the elites, the DB is probably right to argue that the disagreements between factions are mostly superficial. Nevertheless, as I have pointed out in previous feedbacks, there are some substantial differences between the US/UK block and continental Europe, for instance, which suggest that these factions do not see eye-to-eye on every topic (and I do not believe that these disagreements are entirely manufactured to distract the alternative media; in fact many of them are practically ignored even in the alternative media).

The idea of the world order, eventually, being run by Nazis is not a new idea at all. It's absolutly correct when you understand who the Nazis were. Satan. That's who they are. Well the Bible tells us that the antichrist will rule the world, so nothing new has been introduced with this concept... It is true. Why? The world is opposite the Kingdom of God which will rise out of Israel when Jesus rules there. He who rules Jerusalem rules the world! You stated Zionism as a world movement, or at least implied it... Well, yes, in the context of Jesus Christ, when the Jews ultimately receive Jesus Christ as King. King of Jerusalem, Israel, the entire world. Do you not see this? Why not just preach the Gospel?
