HSBC Laundering Billions?
By Staff News & Analysis - February 03, 2012

A former employee of one of the world's largest international banks has provided WND with more than 1,000 pages of documents, including customer account ledgers for dozens of companies through which the financial institution was laundering money each month, according to the whistleblower. "I found many accounts through which hundreds of thousands of dollars were being flowed as a conduit on a monthly basis," John Cruz, an account relationship manager who worked in the HSBC southern New York region, told WND. − WND

Dominant Social Theme: What a shock! This is perhaps the biggest bank in the world! Where were the regulators? What's going on? How could this happen? It's really impossible to believe …

Free-Market Analysis: Jerome Corsi better hire pretty good security. In Georgia, a lawsuit that Corsi has helped promote seems close to knocking US President Barack Obama off the ballot due to questions about his parents and whether he is US "natural born" – and thus eligible to be president.

And now Corsi has apparently helped reveal the underbelly of the Western world's banking system by exposing "thousands of pages" of documents that, according to Corsi, seem to prove fairly conclusively that HSBC was involved in a massive money laundering scheme that involved people at the very top of the bank.

As of 2011, according to Wikipedia, British-based HSBC was the world's second-largest banking and financial services group and second-largest public company per a composite measure by Forbes magazine … "In February 2008, HSBC was named the world's most valuable banking brand by The Banker magazine."

Given that HSBC is the most valuable banking brand in the world, systemic corruption at the top of HSBC is big news. What's funny in a sad way is that this probably has been going on for decades. It is only now, however − thanks to the Internet − that these sorts of things can be publicized. It seems like there is fairly significant evidence to back up these charges.

As WND reported, Cruz has a raft of customer account records he claims are evidence of an international money-laundering scheme involving hundreds of billions of dollars by London-based HSBC, which reportedly is under investigation by a US Senate committee.

We don't put too much faith in the US Senate when it comes to these sorts of money-laundering schemes. First of all, we don't think money laundering, for the most part. is a crime. We think drugs and gambling – two large generators of illicit funds – should be legalized.

But the reason they won't be, so far as we can tell, is because the Anglosphere elite that seeks to run the world has arranged these "crimes" so as to create large pools of black capital. It is this untrackable black capital that increasingly runs the West's mercenary military and the the West's top-level globalist, Intel-oriented operations.

The sums that slosh about in the recesses of Western government and its mercantilist banking facilities are almost impossible to comprehend. Just before 9/11 − on September 10, in fact − Donald Rumsfeld announced that US$2.3 trillion in Defense funds had gone missing and could not be accounted for.

Unfortunately, Mr. Rumsfeld was not able to follow up definitively as regards this staggering sum because the plane that hit the Pentagon on 9/11 apparently wiped out the records department that contained details on expenditures (along with 125 employees, mostly accountants, bookkeepers and budget analysts).

The elites have plenty of money for black-ops efforts, of course, but the power elite NEVER uses its own funds, from what we can tell. Also, money-washing at big banks creates large pools of "clean" capital that can be used for a variety of purposes.

This larger observation speaks to the heart of what is really going on in the early 21st century. There is a group of unfathomably wealthy Anglosphere elite families (deriving their funds from the control of central banking around the world) and their associates and enablers that are trying to create one-world government as rapidly as possible.

While many call these families Zionist, we have recently eschewed this term, thinking it confuses things. What the world is run by, basically, is a mafia that hires people of similar race and persuasion the way the Italian mafia has in the past.

It is a crime syndicate. It has created – at the top – a parallel global economic, military and political system that seems to be part of the world's larger demos but actually reports to the families not to voters or "democratic" facilities.

The Internet is a process, not an episode. As times goes on, we figure more and more anomalous revelations about the world's largest criminal syndicate will be revealed. These are not "incidents" of corruption. In fact, one oughtn't to call it "corruption," in our view.

There is an emergent world government that has been put in place and it is one that is supported by corporations and individuals that are above national law. The system will only collapse – and it will in our view – when people realize that what they believe is anomalous is in fact systemic.

After Thoughts

The revelations about HSBC should not shock anyone who believes in the step-by-step – and ongoing – construction of a New World Order. What HSBC likely reveals is the Way the World Really Works.
