Saudi Arabia: The Meme Expands
By Daily Bell Staff - January 13, 2016

The United States have managed to solve the question of the succession of King Abdallah, but today, they are attempting to lead Saudi Arabia into error. Their objective is now to divide the country into five states. Wahhabism is the state religion, but the power of the Saud family, both interior and exterior, depends exclusively on Sunni tribes, while it subjects all other populations to apartheid. King Salman (80 years old) leaves the exercise of power to one of his children, Prince Mohammed (30 years old.) The Prince has seized control of his country's major companies, has declared war on Yemen, and has just executed the leader of the opposition, Sheikh al-Nimr. – LewRockwell

Dominant Social Theme: The House of Saud has difficulties, as do all great powers.

Free-Market Analysis: If you have followed The Daily Bell regularly, you are perhaps asking yourself again, how did they know?

That's because you are aware of articles in these pages for perhaps the past year or more maintaining that London and DC wanted to dump the House of Saud.

At the time, this sort of observation was not being presented by the alternative media, much less the mainstream media.

But here comes French intellectual, founder and chairman of Voltaire Network and the Axis for Peace Conference Thierry Meyssan.

He writes what very few will, as you can see above.

Here is more.

The fall of the House of Saud may be provoked by a reduction in the price of oil. Incapable of reforming its life-style, the kingdom is borrowing hand over fist, to the point that according to financial analysts, it will probably collapse within two years. The partial sale of Aramco may temporarily postpone its demise, but this will only be possible at the cost of a loss of autonomy.

The decapitation of Sheikh al-Nimr will have been the straw that broke the camel's back. The fall of Saudi Arabia is now inevitable because there is no hope left for the people who live there. The country will be plunged into a mixture of tribal revolts and social revolutions which will be far more murderous than the previous Middle-Eastern conflicts.

Far from acting to prevent this tragic end, the US protectors of the kingdom are awaiting it with impatience. They continually praise Prince Mohammed's "wisdom," as if encouraging him to make even more mistakes. Already in September 2001, the US Committee of the Chiefs of Staff were working on a map for the re-modelling of the "wider Middle East," which planned for the separation of the country into five states. In July 2002, Washington was considering ways of getting rid of the Saud family, during a famous session of the Defense Policy Board. From now on, it's just a matter of time.

We certainly didn't know that the Pentagon was plotting to remove the House of Saud, no matter the fame of a Defense Policy Board session.

What we do is follow memes after identifying the underlying goals. In this case, we are fairly sure that the aim of much of what is taking place has to do with an effort at increased globalization.

The goal of many internationalists is a larger monetary union and even a single currency, a single regulator and a worldwide exchange.

Alternatively, there may be several large regions run by Europe, the Americas, Russia and China. But in either case, the dollar reserve currency has to be significantly weakened if not done away with entirely for this larger paradigm to emerge.

We're not sure how it will shake out, of course, but can see the outlines of a new economic order. Understanding these goals, we can then observe the "directed history" that is organized to support these goals.

What we call directed history is supported by "memes" – information promoted in the mainstream media that results in "trends."

Most of the high-profile "trends in the news" tend to support the centralizing of power and authority.

And this is how we arrived at the conclusion that the House of Saud was deemed expendable. It is the necessary supporter of the dollar reserve currency and if it vanishes, the dollar is weakened and globalism strengthened.

The current regime is receiving a pounding in the mainstream media. This is a certain sign that trends are moving against the regime.

The analysis of memes is a useful tool if one accepts the reality of certain elite global goals. Our VESTS analysis, which you can read about in Anthony Wile's book, High Alert, takes advantage of these dominant social themes.

    It will be interesting to see how things play out. I don’t know much about the house-of-Saud/Saudia Arabia to comment about that, but I wonder if the true globalist plot is to make the FRN/US dollar the global single currency rather than tear down its reserve currency status only to develop a new one. As things are looking right now, the dollar is the strongest currency in the world and getting stronger whereas all the rest are being purposely devalued. The yuan may drop another 15% and the euro and Russian ruble are a mess (the British pound is literally history.) Furthermore, the US is the only country (CB/Fed) that is raising interest rates which also generally strengthens the dollar. Most of the world’s financial system depends upon the dollar because so many countries own US Treasury bonds, so if the dollar is weakened all of those countries lose. Most of the developing world is in debt to the US as well, or at least owes dollars to repay their loans. The conversion to a single currency may be the conversion of all other currencies to FRNs since the US already has claims on most of the rest of the world. If the emerging market countries start to default on their loans, which a strengthening dollar makes likely, then “the US” can take possession of the underlying capital in those countries that collateralised their loans, much like what the EU may do to Greece.

    Maybe the original plan was for China to actually grow sustainably and then dump the $4 trillion in US Treasuries to crash the dollar and declare itself the new “king of the world”. However, now China has only about $3.3 trillion left because its been trying to reflate its stock market and weaken its currency. If that was the plan it’s backfiring, but I don’t think it ever was.

      Hi, Bruce C,

      One man’s backfiring is another’s ignition …….. and that makes catastrophic failings in exclusive executive systems administrations, a rich and sound source stream for Future Deliveries …… with ZeroDay Exploitation of Vulnerabilities in Global Operating Devices.

      And that is both SMARTR IT Modus Operandi and Modus Vivendi.

      :-) I Kid U Not :-)

    The elites are confused, frightened and delusional with today’s power control. They have met an enemy they have encountered before while still not recognizing them. Even to the extent of denying their existence. They have finally managed to kick the sleeping dog. It is called tribalism.

    I have been fortunate to travel with various tribal delegation to confer with other tribal leaders around the world including United Nation conferences. China, Philippines, North and South America and yes even the middle east. Different customs, beliefs and traditions. Some good, some bad depending upon your own religious or judicial beliefs. However different, they all have one concept in common. It is, they all believe that tribalism is a human social system that existed before the emergence of the Nation-states

    There is also one other extremely important issue. None of these entities consider themselves a white person. And their numbers are well over a billion. The world is changing thru forced issues. The elites forced the issue and now the changing of the guard is happening, albiet slowly but surely. The powers at be cannot fight over a billion people when they can’t even see them. DB your article touches upon a very serious yet overlooked componet of the changing of the guard. Thank you.

      What must the European/US elites be thinking? My own view is that while their populations have been dumbed down with public education and continuous propaganda, elites have also dumbed themselves down. I just do not understand how these elites think they can maintain power over the tribes. That is magical thinking. The tribes will want to rule themselves; they always have.

      • http://www.thedailybell.com/ The Daily Bell

        Absolutely. We’ve been making this point for years.

          I think your point that the House of Saud is about to be removed from the equation has great merit. In fact, the moment the nuclear deal with Iran was struck, I immediately considered it to represent prima facie evidence of a big shift in Middle Eastern policy – which is implemented by a faction that incidentally seems opposed to the neo-cons. I offer you another tidbit that lends a measure of credibility to Mr. Meyssan’s assertion that a decision to this effect may already have been taken in 2002. Remember the redacted portions of the 9-11 report that cannot be published for “national security” reasons? It is an open secret that this part of the report contains some pretty damning information about the Saudis (all the attackers were born in Saudi Arabia to boot). We don’t know just how damning, but Congress critters who have read it have declared they were utterly appalled. It seems there is actually a multi-faceted power struggle brewing below the surface, the outcome of which will influence the future direction of foreign policy in a major way.

          • http://www.thedailybell.com/ The Daily Bell

            Thanks, Peter. Regarding 9/11, it seems to us that the Saudis were simply actors in a much bigger conspiracy.

            This article has nailed it as have all of the comments..
            Furthermore, the goal of destroying the House of Saud explains the gyrations in the price of oil over the last several years. First they spike up the price to heights that are impossible to sustain. From there it’s easy to create a nice downtrend and then they can drive the price into the dirt. Toss in the additional supply from fracking and the Saudis don’t stand a chance.
            Several times over the last year I heard that the Saudis were oversupplying in order to destroy the frackers. But as usual, this is completely backwards, the fracking is meant to destroy the Saudis. Cheap credit was provided by the Fed to enable this. As a bonus for their efforts, they get to weaken Russia, Brazil and all the other oil producers. It truly is diabolical.

            Yes, thanks!

    The Saudi’s will cause a lot turmoil before they leave, and I doubt they leave before Iran is in revolt. With Arabia in civil war, there is no way Iran goes un-scathed in these chaos. The reserve currency is meaningless, when global governance and global bureaucracy is the goal. The old saying from on high goes, ‘Give me control of a nations money supply, and I care not who makes it’s laws’. Well, you could say, ‘Give me control of the worlds money supply, and I’ll show who’s in control of the world’. Out of chaos comes the order, and the chaos is just getting started. We can forget about peace love and happiness for the time being, and with these crazy’s even in The Order there be no peace. No matter how it all turns out, the end of these people should be the goal of ‘WE The People’!!!
