Titanic “too big to jail” Banks and LIBOR Iceberg

“The USFed, Bank of England, and Euro Central Bank are directly implicated, casting corrupt light on the central bank franchise system. (…) Leave aside the difficult questions as to why and how the LIBOR fraud was revealed, and why and how the crime was not shoved under the rug as usual, and what higher power is controlling and orchestrating the maneuvers. LIBOR and Barclays lie at the heart of the Western banking cartel and power structure, labeled corrupt to the core. The big banker brush fire has begun. It is raging…” - Jim Willie (1)

“Since 1994, the mythical Strong Dollar Policy had necessitated a two prong strategy: that of keeping rates low because weak currencies are typified by high interest rates; and the price of gold must be suppressed as it stands as an historical alternative settlement currency – and they don’t want the alternative to appear “strong”. (…) Libor – or the London Inter-Bank Offered Rate – is one of the lynch pins in setting [rigging] global U.S. Dollar interest rates. (…) It has EVERYTHING to do with making the American Dollar look viable as the world’s reserve currency.” - Rob Kirby (2)

“Does this mean that the US and UK financial systems can only be kept afloat by fraud that harms purchasers of interest rate swaps, which include municipalities advised by sellers of interest rate swaps, and those with saving accounts? The answer is yes…- Paul Craig Roberts, Former U.S. Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Economic Policy (3)

Titanic Banks Hit LIBOR Iceberg: Will Lawsuits Sink the Ship?
Antitrust violations, wire fraud, bid-rigging, and price-fixing

by Ellen Brown
Global Research

At one time, calling the large multinational banks a “cartel” branded you as a conspiracy theorist.   Today the banking giants are being called that and worse, not just in the major media but in court documents intended to prove the allegations as facts.  Charges include racketeering (organized crime under the U.S. Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act or RICO), antitrust violations, wire fraud, bid-rigging, and price-fixing.  Damning charges have already been proven, and major damages and penalties assessed.  Conspiracy theory has become established fact.

Self Governance versus false government security blanket

The social self by Nikkihiggins / Wikimedia

“Do we really want to live in a world of police checkpoints, surveillance cameras, and metal detectors? Do we really believe government can provide total security?”

“Internal self governance, by contrast, is a much more powerful regulator of human behavior than any law. This self-governance must be developed from birth, first by parents but later also through the positive influence of relatives and adult role models.” – Ron Paul

Legal Plunder: Organized by law for the profit of those who make law

Frédéric Bastiat (1801-1850) / Wikimedia

“In Frédéric Bastiat’s brilliant The Law, he explains that “when plunder is organized by law for the profit of those who make law,” everyone eventually becomes involved in legislation. And when the masses join in, “they emulate their evil predecessors by participating in this legal plunder.”

“In California, a law that promised to control politicians is now being used to control the public.”

In voting for Prop. 25, the people of California were duped by the mirage of government efficiency. Now they should note what their government has become more efficient at doing. Tax and spend. Rob and squander.” – Mike Reid

Remobilizing Gold could save the World Economy

“The world’s monetary gold should be remobilized. This can be accomplished by opening the U.S. Mint to the free and unlimited coinage of gold. There should be no attempt to fix, cap, or otherwise control the dollar price of gold.”

Gold is the only ultimate extinguisher of debt. Other extinguishers do, of course, exist but they are not ultimate in that they have a counterpart in the liability column of the balance sheet of someone else. Gold has no such liability attached to it. Gold is where the buck stops. It is this property that makes gold unique as a financial asset.
Professor Fekete

Image: Stuart Miles / freedigitalphotos.net *

What we are telling you is: that document isn’t real. That’s the difference. That’s the distinction in law. We are talking about a forged document being used – maybe mistakenly – by M. Obama. But somebody knows how it got there. The department of Health didn’t create it. They didn’t create the file. Somebody else did. (…) That’s a falsified document.” – Mike Zullo, Lead Investigator

Dr. Guenter Meyer, a Middle East expert at the University of Mainz in Germany, speaking to RT in an interview, described the Houla massacre of three weeks ago as an example ofmassacre marketing, which means that rebels on purpose kill as many people as possible in order to incite worldwide public opinion and to promote invasion from abroad into Syria in order to oust Bashar al-Assad.

“It’s quite obvious that for the Houla Massacre the rebels were responsible.”
