From Dollar Hegemony to Global Warming: Globalization, Glyphosate and Doctrines of Consent Colin Todhunter in conversation with Denis Rancourt

Colin Todhunter

There has been an on-going tectonic shift in the West since the abandonment of the Bretton Woods agreement in 1971. This accelerated when the USSR ended and has resulted in the ‘neoliberal globalization’ we see today.

At the same time, there has been an unprecedented campaign to re-engineer social consensus in the West. Part of this strategy, involves getting populations in Western countries to fixate on ‘global warming’, ‘gender equity’ and ‘anti-racism’: by focusing on identity politics and climate change, the devastating effects and injustices brought about by globalized capitalism and associated militarism largely remain unchallenged by the masses and stay firmly in the background.

This is the argument presented by Denis Rancourt, a researcher at Ontario Civil Liberties Association, in a new report.

Rancourt is a former full professor of physics at the University of Ottawa in Canada and author of ‘Geo-economics andgeo-politics drive successive eras of predatory globalization and socialengineering: Historical emergence of climate change, gender equity, and anti-racism as state doctrines’ (April 2019).

In the report, Rancourt references Michael Hudson’s 1972 book Super Imperialism: The Economic Strategy of American Empire to help explain the key role of maintaining dollar hegemony and the importance of the petrodollar to US global dominance.

Aside from the significance of oil, Rancourt argues that the US has an existential interest to ensure that opioid drugs are traded in US dollars, another major global commodity. This explains the US occupation of Afghanistan. He also pinpoints the importance of US agribusiness and the arms industry in helping to secure US geostrategic goals.

Since the fall of the USSR in 1991, Rancourt says, US war campaigns have, among other things, protected the US dollar from abandonment, destroyed nations seeking sovereignty from US dominance, secured the opium trade, increased control over oil and have frustrated Eurasian integration.

In addition, we have seen certain countries face a bombardment of sanctions and hostility in an attempt to destroy energy-producing centres that the US does not control, not least Russia.

He also outlines the impacts within Western countries too, including: the systematic relative loss of middle-class economic status, the rise of urban homelessness, the decimation of the industrial working class, corporate megamergers, rising inequality, the dismantling of welfare, financial speculation, stagnant wages, debt, deregulation and privatisation.

In addition, the increased leniency in food and drug regulation has led to the dramatic increase in the use of the herbicide glyphosate, which has been concurrent with upsurges of many diseases and chronic ailments.

In the face of this devastation, Western nations have had to secure ongoing consent among their own populations. To help explain how this has been achieved, Rancourt focuses on gender equity, anti-racism and global warming as state doctrines that have been used to divert attention from the machinations of US empire (and also to prevent class consciousness taking hold).

I recently asked Denis Rancourt about this aspect of his report.

*

Colin Todhunter: Can you say a bit about yourself and how you came to produce this report? What is it meant to achieve?

Denis Rancourt: I’m a former physics professor, environmental scientist and a civil rights advocate. I currently work as a researcher for the Ontario Civil Liberties Association (ocla.ca). During a conversation about civil rights issues I had with the executive director of OCLA, we identified several important societal and economic phenomena that seemed to be related to the early 1990s. So, I eventually settled in to do some ‘heavy lifting’, research wise.

While there is no lack of hired intellectuals and experts to wrongly guide our perception, my research demonstrates a link between surges in large-scale suppression and exploitation of national populations with the acceleration of an aggressive, exploitative globalization.

CT: In your report, you’ve described the consequences of the abandonment of Bretton Woods and the dissolution of the USSR in terms of dollar hegemony, US militarism and the devastating impacts of ‘neoliberal globalisation’ both for nation states and for ordinary people.

DR: There is little doubt that Russian and Chinese analysts have a solid understanding of what I have outlined in my report. For instance, foreshadowing Trump’s trade war, the People’s Liberation Army Major-General Qiao Liang’s April 2015 speech to the Chinese Communist Party’s Central Committee and government office, included the following:

Since that day [dissolution of Bretton Woods], a true financial empire has emerged, the US dollar’s hegemony has been established, and we have entered a true paper currency era. There is no precious metal behind the US dollar. The government’s credit is the sole support for the US dollar. The US makes a profit from the whole world.

This means that the Americans can obtain material wealth from the world by printing a piece of green paper. […] If we [now] acknowledge that there is a US dollar index cycle [punctuated by engineered crises, including war] and the Americans use this cycle to harvest from other countries, then we can conclude that it was time for the Americans to harvest China…

CT: You discuss the need for states to ensure consent: the need to pacify, hypnotize and align populations for continued globalization; more precisely, the need to divert attention from the structural violence of economic policies and the actual violence of militarism. Can you say something about how the issue of global warming relates to this?

DR: Irrespective of whether the so-called ‘climate crisis’ is real, exaggerated or fabricated, it is clear, from the data in my report, that the ethos of global warming was engineered on a global scale and benefits the exploiters of the carbon-economy and, more indirectly, the state.

For example, one of the studies that I review shows that a many-fold increase in mainstream media reporting about global warming suddenly occurred in the mid-2000s, in all the leading news media, at the same time that the financiers and their acolytes such as Al Gore decided to make and manage a global carbon economy. This media campaign has been sustained ever since and the global warming ethos has been institutionalized.

Carbon sequestration schemes have devastated local communities on every occupied continent. If anything, carbon schemes − from wind farms to biofuel harvesting to industrial battery production to solar-cell array installations to mining uranium to mega hydro-dam construction and so on – have accelerated habitat destruction.

Meanwhile, economic and military warfare rages, glyphosate is dumped into the ecosphere at unprecedented rates (poured on GM herbicide-resistant cash crops), active genocides are in progress (Yemen), the US is unilaterally withdrawing from nuclear treaties and forcing an arms race with next-generation death machines and US-held extortionary loans are serviced by land-use transformation on the scale of nations; while our educated children have nervous breakdowns trying to get governments to “act” on “climate”.

In the early-1990s, a world conference on climate environmentalism was an express response to the dissolution of the Soviet Union. This was part of a global propaganda project intended to mask the new wave of accelerated predatory globalism that was unleashed now that the USSR was definitively out of the way.

CT: What are your thoughts on Greta Thunberg and the movement surrounding her?

DR: It is sad and pathetic. The movement is a testament to the success of the global propaganda project that I describe in my report. The movement is also an indicator of the degree to which totalitarianism has taken hold in Western societies; wherein individuals, associations and institutions lose their ability for independent thought to steer society away from the designs of an occupying elite. Individuals (and their parents) become morality police in the service of this ‘environmentalism’.

CT: You also talk about the emergence of gender-equity (third wave feminism) and anti-racism as state doctrines. Can you say something about this?

DR: In my report, I use historical institutional records and societal data to demonstrate that a triad of ‘state religions’ was globally engendered and emerged on cue following the dissolution of the Soviet Union. This triad consists of climate alarmism, exaggerated tunnel-vision focus on gender equity and a campaign of anti-racism focussed on engineering thoughts, language and attitudes.

These state ideologies were conceived and propelled by UN efforts and the resulting signed protocols. Western academia enthusiastically took up and institutionalized the program. Mainstream media religiously promoted the newly minted ethos. Political parties largely applied increased quotas of gender and race elected representatives.

These processes and ideas served to soothe, massage and occupy the Western mind, especially among the upper-middle, professional and managerial classes and the elite classes of economically occupied territories but did nothing to alleviate the most violent and globally widespread forms of actual racism and misogyny as a result of predatory globalization and militarism.

Ironically, the global attacks on human dignity, human health and the environment were in proportion to the systematic and sometimes shrill calls for gender equity, anti-racism and climate ‘action’. The entire edifice of these ‘state religions’ leaves no room for required conflicts of class and expressly undermines any questioning of the mechanisms and consequences of globalization.

CT: Can you say something about the Gilets Jaunes (Yellow Vests), Brexit and the Trump electoral phenomenon.

DR: Combine aggressive globalization, constant financial predation, gutting of the Western working and middle classes and a glib discourse of climate change, anti-racism and gender equity and something has to give. French geographer Christophe Guilluy predicted the reactions in some detail, and it is not difficult to understand.

It is no accident that the revolting working- and middle-classes are critical of the narratives of climate crisis, anti-racism and gender equity; and that their voices are cast by the mainstream media as racist, misogynist and ignorant of science.

It seems that any class which opposes its own destruction is accused of being populated by racist and ignorant folks that can’t see that salvation lies in a carbon-managed and globalized world. It becomes imperative, therefore, to shut down all the venues where such an ‘ignorant lot’ could communicate their views, attempt to organize and thereby threaten the prevailing social order.

I read the report yesterday: it is a fantastic piece of work with lots of relevant information. However, I feel it suffers from the structure that the information is presented within.

The overall framework suffers from being too state-structuralist and US-centric. The overarching nature of neoliberalism is that it was trans-national and supra-sovereign in character from inception. That inception usually being considered as the Lipmann Coloquium in 1937 – which von Mises and Hayek both attended. A crucial omission from the Report is the Mount Pelerin Society meeting in 1947 – which Friedman attended. This led to the think-tank gestation period of neoliberalism – funded by Swiss and UK money, as well as US.

By focusing on the US: the critical US/UK – NY/City of London/Bank of England trans-national axis of neoliberalism is omitted. Which fails to account for neoliberalism being an ‘offshore’ supra-national phenomena – funded by the unregulated expansion of financialisation and credit that the euromarkets – centred in London – afforded. Follow the money and it disperses down a warren of offshore rabbit holes entered by one of the numerous secrecy jurisdictions.

Also omitted are the close ties of the Mount Pelerin Society and the City/BoE half of the axis. Neoliberalism is, and was, an ‘offshore’ trans-national supra-sovereign initiative of international capitalist elites to install a libertarian fascist doctrine over onshore populations – destroying the Keynesian welfare state and any organisational unionised labour protections.

One critical omission is Pinochet’s Chile – where neoliberalism was trialled on an unwilling population. Any dissent was dropped from a helicopter or raped by a rat. It failed horribly as a social and economic experiment …but that did not deter Friedman’s ‘Chicago Boys’.

Apart from the libertarian fascism being on full view from the very outset of the experimental implementation in Chile …another crucial element of the dark shadow nature of neoliberalism was trialed – surveillance capitalism. It was not digitised then – Operation Condor (an extension of the Pheonix Program) relied on HUMINT and SIGINT …that is, people informing on their neighbours. But the relevance for the modern world, and display of the true natures of the elite ‘shadow sovereign’ Trans-National Suprastate (TNS) that the unregulated finance of the offshore ‘hot money’ euromarkets has literally afforded was clear. They are technocrats as well as plutocrats. Neoliberalism is also technocracy rising.

No less so in the virtually coordinated implementation of neoliberalism ‘onshore’ in the developed markets by Thatcher and Reagan (still fresh in the living memory, if you are my age). Thatcher’s ‘Big Bang’ was as much a technocratic milestone for the speed and ease of financialisation: which was part of a deliberate policy to decouple capital accumulation from its reliance on labour. No need to recap: but the trans-Atlantic axis of implementation is in itself indicative of the power of the shadow sovereign TNS plutocrats – and the technocratic nature of the TNS ‘Inner Party’. I do not think there can be any doubt that neoliberalism was a coordinated trans-Atlantic curse on humanity, really.

As such, it favours an internationalised neo-Gramscian structural-functionalist critique – of the intentional hegemony of trans-national capital not just over labour, but over whole populations of humanity. The structuralist approach favours a trans-national World System Theory hierarchy of capital domination and post-Marxist International Relations framework. The functionalist approach favours a critique of the WTO global governance architecture: and the unregulated financialisation the offshore euromarket funding affords …and the hierarchical tributary system that has been created to character mask the London/NY City of London/Wall St axis of the imperialist core.

The secrecy and masking is intentional, and the focus on nation state inter-relations and geo-political motives is also a deliberate camouflaging of the now global nature of trans-national finance (see below). Neoliberal globalisation was never a US-centric geo-political domination theory, neither was it a trans-Atlantic Anglo-American axis of imperialism …it was always trans-national and supra-sovereign libertarian fascist elitism from the Lipmann Coloquium. Much of the phenomena of imperialist imposition can be attributed to the libertarian exclusionary and technocratic nature of the shadow sovereign elites themselves. Much more could be made of Ayn Rand’s cabal – including the Kochs; etc toward this characterisation. Which ties in the climate agenda. Also to the rise of the TNCs; which is a parallel development of neoliberalism.

Suffice to say: neoliberalism is not a US-centric or nation state structuralist political phenomena. It was always centreless and de-territorialised supra-sovereign and trans-national superstate from inception – one that is an ‘imagined geography’ (to appropriate Edward Said’s term). It may be an abstract and imaginative space that opens national territories into a global ‘laissez-faire’ trans-national ‘free’-market for capital – one that is inter-linked by the reliance on the unregulated offshore euromarkets …which equates to eurodollar hegemony of interbank finance …Unfortunately for humanity, the effects of this imagined geography are very, very, real – in terms of the near ubiquity of suffering in global populations it has created. Not to mention the extractivist dominion over the environment. This equates to the near totalising domination of humanity by trans-national capital – which is the real neo-Gramscian hegemony over humanity and nature.

BigB, you are on the roll … excellent.

What can i add? Maybe these that built the house of cards always had the next stage. USA (the country and population) is just another rung in their make believe ladder to heaven.

They are ‘System’ changers and they aim to have a ‘Global Reset’ as they rinse and repeat and stay at the top of the pile of what they feel is their god given or natural right to power and slavery of the rest of the human race and this planet.

The immigrants that made America great are about to be given a serious wake up. As they join the rest of us 99.9%.

i’ll second every word of that, DunGroanin, brilliant BigB, classic eloquence . . .

What can I add ? 😉 Logically >>> Well, thurs’ weather modification & derivative speculation on same at the Chicago, (repeat Chic-agogo) Stock Exchange, conceived long before 2001 & then the WTC7 SEC Criminal Investigation into Enron’s speculation with pensions funds, harmonised with Monsanto & GMO crops with especially resistant seeds to the particulates sprayed, on offer, to test the abilities of HAARP & US Farmers financial resilience to drought, finally forced to sell out their livelihoods & land to Monsanto, and then the rain returned and if the second largest US corporation had not been all high on cocaine, they might have performed better & fallen in line with strategic long term calculations. Of course, the 2000 Dotcom bubble had compromised their commitments & obligations in a haze of bacchanalian buggery and hey presto, Caligula and Gore Vidal’s History of the National Security State, springs to mind …

short enough DG 🙂 coz’ clearly, what’s good for the goose & Guccifer2:0, goes global & “neoliberalism is not a US-centric or nation state structuralist political phenomena.”
nor Weather Modification 🙂 With GCHQ on board, all you need is a few Italian S.S. & Ukrainian Secret Services, oh and some Germans with 65 x AS-340 Airsolbus, then remarkably, one can wonder & marvel at Moscow’s recent Winter Record of a mere 6 minutes sunshine for the whole of month of December 2017. Don’t get me wrong, the Russians & Chinese are also active in Weather modification methods and we must presume many others have been testing or compliant with these experiments on us guinea pigs, with tools that can easily warp the shape of our magnetosphere and alter the Jet Stream Turbulence & Flow rates & direction, in both Northern & Southern Hemispheres,
which is why antipodean people have seen the purple streaker **S.T.E.V.E.**
Which kinda’ makes sense if you have 5Eyes

** Strong Thermal Emissions Velocity Enhancement is NASA & Guardian speak and no, none of this is made up or imaginary, unfortunately. You’d be excused for thinking think that some body of scientists would actually take an interest, Officially, but not even @OffG, despite this release, exactly on the day Trump was in Paris for the non-binding climate accord …

‘These processes and ideas served to soothe, massage and occupy the Western mind, especially among the upper-middle, professional and managerial classes and the elite classes of economically occupied territories but did nothing to alleviate the most violent and globally widespread forms of actual racism and misogyny as a result of predatory globalization and militarism.’ – yes, the paradox at the heart of political correctness: the greater the hysteria around controlling cultural discourse the more detached from reality that discourse seems to be.

This discord plays out in many forms: today for example the Guardian laments the judicial cruelty inflicted on Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe (in Iran) while at the same time publishing article after article mocking a political prisoner arbitrarily detained and tortured by the British authorities.

Or take their pearl clutching over the Khashoggi case: journalists getting their knickers over a single murder while rooting for every necon invasion that they must know will lead to human misery and economic ruin on a much vaster scale.

Interesting exchange between Tucker Carlson and Glen Greenwald on the latent violence that is now part and parcel of liberal ideology in its organised forms (media and political groups).

Hi Harry, good link: nice to see Greenwald getting up to speed again, legally, almost calling it like it is, and having the courage to speak the absolutely bleeding obvious regarding Trump’s administrative reality: i still found it disturbing that he shied away from using the word ‘Treason’, because that was what the “insurance policy” and Russia-Hoax was, in fact: and the evidentiary conspiracy is what Bill Barr is studying, presently, thus the huge distractions in the daily news for sheeple.

I haven’t read his article, yet, but will do: therefore, I must venture to comment on one glaring omission in the link provided, namely, Greenwald neglects to mention who owns the various mainstream media sources that have continuously conspired with this attempted Treason by the CIA, FBI & elements of the NSA, with foreign actors, all running parallel platforms with which to maximise damage & distraction from this bureaucratic civil war, which masks the full nature of Treason U$A & their wholly illegal bulk surveillance.

Likely because it would mean also discussing who funds & backs the ‘Intercept’. Either way,
somebody like Glenn should easily understand that, although it is very difficult in these times to bite the hand that feeds, some sort of reference to the international scale of this political interference in the 2016 elections, (that had little to nothing to do with Russia, but very much everything to do with the UK’s GCHQ , also the Italian & Ukrainian secret services), is sorely missing & a brief mention of the Guardian’s U-turn under S.S. command, on Snowden & Assange seemed more than a little depressing for me, given his involvement & clear understanding of ‘Censorship’ most rife.

Wow. Rancourt makes it more than explicit

IRRESPECTIVE OF WHETHER the so-called ‘climate crisis’ is real, exaggerated or fabricated, it is clear, from the data in my report, that the ethos of global warming was engineered on a global scale and benefits the exploiters of the carbon-economy and, more indirectly, the state. [EMPHASIS ADDED]

that, at least in the interview itself, he was NOT ADDRESSING the issue of the validity or otherwise of destructive, atmospheric CO2 induced climate change theory or the data presented to support or refute it, either as a theory or as, so far, tests of that theory.

IRRESPECTIVE OF THE POSSIBLE CONTENT OF SOME POSSIBLE PRE- OR POST-INTERVIEW OFF-MIC CHAT, what on earth could have led the interviewer and reporter of it to end-note otherwise if not the sort of obsessive irrationality that will see us all off the face of the planet by this time next week, or sooner (assuming we aren’t off it already, living still in the Titanic moment between the time–now a few decades ago–when disaster could no longer be averted and the time–now clear on the horizon–when denial of it will simultaneously be both rationally untenable and at its most raucous, which we are).

Our collective iceberg? Not the destruction of the habitat from the top of the exosphere to the bottom of ths Mariana Trench, or the disintegration of social, economic and political restraints on our collective hubris, both expressed in scores of failures from acidification, to toxicication to globalization, but the apotheosis of too many such failures in too short a period of time for any of us to be able to apprehend, analyze, comprehend or afford to counter enough of them to avoid most of them.

To express it in terms of the Enlightenment-proof paradigm that begat most of this nice mess, live by the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge, kill everything and die by the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge.

So, always presuming you are not a trout, lol

(mind you assumption is the mother of all fuckin’ fuckups,

I have a question for you:-

In your opinion, can we & do we actively modify & modulate the weather to order, especially within NATO nations ?

P.s. BigB and many others seem afraid to take a position on this ‘Matter’ of Physics, despite my asking, quite directly. Not that your answer will change what I know to be true, from direct personal experience & Knowledge, but as a measure of you, for me, please …

Apart from the high probability that unintended, uncontrolled microclimate modification is a concomitant effect of commercial aviation’s grease trails, I don’t know. I followed up all the obviously not insane stuff I could find about HAARP &c back when it was big conspiracy news, which wasn’t a lot, and followed a few footnotes into a superficial, layman’s knowledge of the atmos/ionospherics involved, but wouldn’t chance venturing my resultant, personal-use-only opinion (that it might be used as a remote weather modification tool in some ways and in certain conditions, maybe) at a Royal Society bunfight. I also checked out some of the meticulously documented conspiratorial theorizing about commercial aviation greasetrails and realized, yet again, just how closely the inside of the averagely rational human mind can resemble the Terminal OCD ward at your local looney bin. So that leaves belief (localized/directed spraying, particularly cloud seeding, being an everyday business and occasional military fact). Do I believe that some classified aspects of broader-scale climate engineering, usually aimed at hegomonic maintenance or rebalance chew though largeish amounts of some national “defence” budgets: yes. Do I believe they’ve got somewhere yet? Possibly. Will they get any further? Likely. Do I believe that all sorts of civil entrepreneurs are out there seeking their fortune? No, that bit I know: yes. Are there any number of crackpots, a.k.a. inventors and scientists, seeking to get funding from them to develop their latest brainwave? Of course. Do I care a lot any more? No. These days even moderate heat waves have me hunting around for my favourite pair of nice warm socks.

As long as we all waste energy debating the whys and wherefores of peripheral issues around climate change, racism and gender equity, the bastards have got us.

I am old enough like most others here I suspect, to know that pre their sequestration by the neoliberals, all of those issues have a solid basis in science and economy.
However as Rancourt states the problems western societies face are rarely about honest brokers attempting to resolve climate, racial and gender issues, but are instead about political charlatans using the issues to divide us, and distract us from real solutions.
A quick example, yesterday the government controlled graun who despite endlessly whining about alleged ‘foreign interventions in national elections keep sticking their our into the farcical US prez beauty contest even though the fishwrap is an english and therefore foreign to the US meddler.

Now I for one couldn’t give a flying fuck which bludging no-hoper wins that nonsense distraction because it really doesn’t matter because whichever low-life grabs that brass ring bugger-all will change in either domestic of foreign US policy. The wars will continue outside the US and the oppression of poor people will ramp up inside it.

Anyway the graun was big on some storm in a teacup between whatisname the irish american crook Biden and the African American self-hating careerist Harris.

Apparently Harris called Biden out for his alleged racist activities and support for the dixiecrats who had used race more specifically whitefellas’ insecurity about civil rights legislation to carve out a knee jerk niche by running emotive scare campaigns against further citizenship rights for African Americans.

I suppose that could have been a valid point if there was any chance that any real change in the plight of all citizens living in poverty had a chance of being realised should a dem win ‘Prez 2020’. When poverty is addressed the major issues will have been resolved time for the details, but since there was no chance of that, the dems were just playing around with side issues which if remedied won’t make much of a difference to any citizen – black or white. All that will happen is the usual will he/she won’t he/she type media distraction, prefacing no major change despite emotive scares and promises from all sides of democrat ‘debate’.

Anyway Harris worked as a prosecutor eagerly destroying the lives of thousands of african americans by avidly backing laws designed to oppress unwhite americans, so who the hell is she to lecture anyone about race?

Of course the graun shit rag ignored any of that, most probably because they have rightly judged Harris to be a viable neolib operator who won’t make the fundamental changes Jo/Joe Blow requires, which could upset the elite applecart.

Backing Harris allows writers and readers to feel good about caring for these ‘unfortunates’ secure in the knowledge that no one’s parasitical existence will be discomfited.
That is what we are fighting and I believe that is what Rancourt alluded to, fighting over the meaningless nuances in these issues is exactly what the arseholes want us to do – so why do it?

Unequivocal apologies UreK: clearly, after patiently studying your comments in more depth, over a longer period, I must fully concede that I was way too rash in my judgement of you, a shot from the hip that missed, which happened to coincide with an influx of trolls @OffG, who were consistently trying to transfer & project serious argumentation in any other direction, in order to to disrupt any active constructive discourse. Maybe I was just sick of discussing grassy knolls, JFK and / or grudgingly suffering from the male menopause, insistent on sticking to the point of the article & discussion or just plain, hey, having a bad day … whatever, i was clearly mistaken,

for which i feel obligated to apologise.

“… fighting over the meaningless nuances in these issues is exactly what the arseholes want us to do – so why do it?” if someone is clearly not trolling & acting, but speaking with conscience & conscious awareness, “as long as we all waste energy debating the whys and wherefores of peripheral issues around climate change, racism and gender equity, the bastards have got us.”

And I have to agree, wholeheartedly.

Back to climate: imho, we need a Global Moratorium on climate, first, with all nations openly invited, especially Israel must attend or be sanctioned immediately, thereafter. So, would you agree that it would be wiser to establish multiple, (wholly independent of all military intelligence & the U.N.), Databanks for ANY Weather Modifications programme, internationally, in real time, with an obligation to report all intentions,
before any actions, in future ? Having announced any intentions in advance, on Databases where ‘Parallel Platforms’ are considered malicious attempts to deceive, disrupt, corrupt & destroy any specific individual culture, globally, as a demonstrable Act of Terror, we can begin to make headway & some scientific sense of what we’ve done already, in terms of Weather Modification & our climate, openly: to begin with, a serious open sourced discussion of plasma physics’ & its’ AIMs, including …

Artificial Ionospheric Mirrors: this all seems entirely logical & equitable to me: to avoid any further corporate smoke & mirrors on all matters climate, a climate which has changed radically before our very eyes, as have our clear blue skies, especially in the Northern Hemisphere. On the other hand, we could all end up shaking in our NATO boots, like Ms. Merkel, fully accepting CFCs (Computerised Fascist Collusion), with parallel platforms for elitist corporate dictatorship, as we have at present … not much of a choice, the way i see it, coz’ I just got back from observing something amiss in Denmark and with similar conclusions and far worse evidence in Austria, last Autumn, the following article should be a wake up call for all Europeans: Europeans desperately in need of some union on priority matters of secret NATO governMental expenditures for Fascists perverted …
strategies & goals !

Man Made Global Warming=Climate Change=Climate Emergency. What’s next on the drawing board?

Not content with scaring adults, who increasingly are asking the relevant questions and seeing through the propaganda of corrupted climate science, the Marxist educationalists are now after our children who cannot so easily work out for themselves that government scientists lie to the people. From climate change to cancer they lie to order. Cancer Tutor a must visit website.

Al Gore and his Hockey Stick have been totally discredited as have the Climate Unit, located at East Anglia University and Professor Jones should repay the millions in grants that his shady ethics has garnered. The hacked emails show these “scientists” for what they really are, a bunch of sycophants hoovering up grant money.

More than 30,000 Scientists and PHDs have signed a letter claiming that man made global warming is a hoax. Half an hour on the net will expose this hoax for what it is. In all probability we are in an ice age that has periodic warm periods and we are in one such period now which is coming to an end as the Milankovitch Cycles demonstrate. No where do the alarmists discuss the Sun or Axial Tilt of the Earth as contributing factors. Earths axil tilt has changed by 5 degrees, according to Michu Kaku, due to the Chilean Earthquake.

The Meteorological Centre at Bracknell shield the climate scientists from enquiries, why?

The real reason behind this man made hoax is to establish a new Carbon Exchange on Wall Street so Al Gore and his minions can get richer off the backs of the people in higher carbon taxes. Always ask who benefits and start there.

“The Meteorological Centre at Bracknell shield the climate scientists from enquiries, why?”

Because NATO has long been engineering the climate, testing first on their own people and these people @Bracknell are shielded from people like myself & many others. Once you begin to investigate which programmes they are using and read the contracts and follow the deferred chain of legal accountability, which obviates any transparency, you will begin to get the picture: a false picture, which includes not just the Met.Office & Météo-France, but all NATO nations, effectively, & there is a very deliberate disconnect in play, using parallel platforms & climate models of ‘Matter’ & Particulates that are not up for public discussion or consideration.

Intel inside: Ireland’s Harmony Project & HarmoniEPS, HAC-Hirlam & Aladin Consortium, Atmospheric & Environmental Research inc. (Massachusetts) … it’s all a very compartmentalised chain of programmers & programming for the above mentioned weather forecasters, who are only now focussed on Hectrometrics, for predicting severe weather and they are clearly avoiding any further discussions on the variable JET STREAM trajectory and how we can engineer this and its’ role in climate & climate change with weather modification & the upper atmosphere. I’ve read each of the contracts that the above formulated between themselves and when you get to the last in the chain, there it is in capital letters >>>

ONE HUGE DISCLAIMER FOR ALL AND ANY LEGAL LIABILITY, on page 16 or 17,
if memory serves: which made & makes the whole chain of responsibility null & void.

QED, cui bono, apart from the Ashkenazi Jew & NATO command strategy ? those with insider knowledge can truly profit on the commodities markets, like in Chicago, which began ages ago with the first ever Weather Derivatives and shortly after the Dotcom bubble, leading to the demise of the second largest US corporation’s pension fund @Enron, BOOM and the SEC criminal investigation into same, which was situated in WTC7, amongst many other security agencies records, just vanished, up in smoke. WTC7 was the Target on the 11th Sept. 2001, the rest was just for ‘show’ & to create the New Pearl Harbour to ramp the surveillance state, start a war and as many distractions as possible from what the US Government was party to … coz’ back then, they had the legal liability for HAARP & what HAARP had been used for, in tandem with Monsanto’s best interests, buying up bankrupted farmers in the mid-West, after engineering electronically so many successive droughts.

Once Monsanto had bought the lands on the cheap & planted their resistant to weather modification particulates GMO seed experimentation …

‘magically’, Rain Returned 😉

Frankly I’m amazed people haven’t noticed that in this computer age, the one thing that has not improved in the slightest, is the quality & accuracy of weather forecasting. Although Die Zeit ran a 6 part article not so long ago on this very matter > it was crap, but ‘they’ needed to pacify a better educated enquiring German Joe Public, somehow … a while longer.

The British also used to take a serious interest in the Weather 😉
But not the engineering bit, except for GCHQ (Logic) 🙂

I don’t understand the author’s end-note about my Report. The author, Colin Todhunter, states “I do not endorse his data on climate warming itself and therefore his conclusions based on that data”. My Report does not have any “data on climate warming itself” and I draw no conclusion whatsoever in my Report “based on that data”. In my Report, I take no position on the scientific debate about climate itself, or about the nature of climate. Maybe the author can clarify, in response to this comment?

That still begs the question: why was it there I the first place? One might well conclude that it shows the position the author has on climate change. Personally, as an unqualified observer, but one cynically dismissive of positions which support the agenda of the polluters I’ll go with the literally thousands of scientists who say it is and we are responsible. Look act Greenland and the polar ice cap melts, the increased frequency of maximum (category 5) cyclones and hurricanes, devastating bush fires etc.

“That still begs the question: why was it there I the first place? One might well conclude that it shows the position the author has on climate change.”

“Author” Who are you talking about? Who is Rancourt talking about? Who is ADMIN talking about? Who are you, Antipropo, talking about?

Only Rancourt makes it clear in context: “author”=author of the article=Todhunter (which is congruent with the presentation of the article).

But ADMIN says “author” without qualification: so is that the author of the article or author of the Report mentioned therein?

God knows which you, Antipropo, are talking about?

If that is the level of specificity of information in to discussions about anything of relevance to the subject of a discussion about anything, here or in any other old agressive-drunken bar/rackoom or BTL littering the planet (and it usually is) what’s the chance of a huge dogpile of life-destroying garbage out?

Sort of. Various systems of logic (Aristotelian, symbolic, algebraic, etc) formed part of what I used to tout around as a reason for giving me their money in exchange for my time.

No, but later, during the touting sessions, I sometimes had to talk them up a bit.

“If you read the response from the author of the report quoted, then the response from the article writer ah I give up, read in sequence it’s fuckin obvious…”

What “response from the article writer”? He apparently appended an end note to the article before submitting it, which an admin has since removed at his request, but nothing further from him resembling a “response” to that or Rancourt’s enquiry has shown up here yet.

Giving up is probably your best course. Quit before you fall further behind.

As an unqualified observer it is also imperative to take into account that those in control are manipulating the weather intentionally, via geoengineering. If you want to refute that they are spraying, watch the documentary I posted and refute the claims made in that. Parroting the “that sounds like a conspiracy theory” line is getting very tiresome, especially when those who like to parrot it the most are indeed those who are the most ignorant about the subject matter.
It is very easy to identify chemtrails as they differ greatly from normal contrails. They are not spraying today in the UK, but they were spraying heavily just before the wet and windy weather front.
Some of the tell tale signs:
– Planes leaving the trails fly flat and below altitude
– They leave enormous, easy to identify trails behind them which do not dissipate for hours but will slowly disperse to leave a hazy, misty effect in the sky
– They often create a criss cross pattern with the trails – easy to see, totally unnatural
– You can often see standard flights alongside the spraying planes, leaving normal CONtrails, as opposed to the abnormal CHEMtrails. Become an expert at spotting the difference
How can we have a rational debate about climate change when the world government is deliberately changing the weather using man made techniques? Just more fucked up, deranged behaviour in Satanworld

Unfortunately, Mucho, it is still an uphill grind of mind over matter, for OffG readers to comprehend even the rudiments of Plasma Physics and applied energy, presently & I don’t have the time to improve my journalistic competence, (at this moment), to formulate an article to reflect my personal direct experience and knowledge of this ‘Matter’, (meaning the Gas [people] call air), and how scientists have formulated & modulated micro radio waves to move all kinds of matter, not just gasses, in all kinds of different ways … (Cymatics, link below)

Likely, the best way to get OffG & its’ readers’ minds to consider the movement of Matter & matters invisible to our sensory perceptions, is to provide an attractive working model, which the readers can replicate for themselves: simple example, place your quality Hi-fi loudspeaker almost touching a thin & fine quality net curtain (to avoid damage to your speaker) and watch the hanging net drapes bellow / swell and sway, moving majestically in harmony with the bass responses especially, i.e. as the amplification is raised the drapes will move, as if blown by wind …

I appreciate your firm stand on this matter, very much, Mucho, because I KNOW we are right with 100% certitude scientifically, having a Very long history of family, friends and work colleagues, in both military & corporate intelligence, dating back to times long before the BBC ever existed and usurped control of the Airwaves & Propaganda for the M.I.C. … I know i must evidence these scientific matters & their history, in these columns at some point, but it’s a big job long read technically, scientifically & legally speaking to formulate & recount everything from Radar designs to Bernard Eastlund & HAARP & B.P. &&&, that is a little more complicated & **dangerous** than most seem to comprehend … so, for this moment, i’ll leave you with a couple of links that will prove that we are NOT talking ‘theory’, coz’ the one is a practical attractive demonstration with music and the other appears to be the coming discussion of Merkel and her Secretary for the Environment, on the 31st September, after an Admission by Christian Elsius of the existence of 65 x AS-340 Airsolbus aircraft, specifically designed & employed for the purpose of NATO’s Weather Modification programme, at an annual cost of 17 Billion Euros to diminished German Economic Growth & scientific returns ! ? … ‘N’joy 😉

Did you not read my comment below or check either of the links, in an effort to expand your mind just a little, before making a fool of yourself,
like a typical Guardian reader or moderator or Mi7 operative ?

The science is unequivocally very real, believe it or not and well tested & proven now: indeed, both military & certain corporations have moved way beyond just plain weather modification & searching for Oil & Gas, using Phasers, Lasers & Sasers, the last of which you & most others here are highly likely entirely in the dark. Damn it man, don’t be so disparaging about things you clearly don’t understand and have zero practical working experience of, let alone the scientific comprehension … i’ll get back to you later, when you’ve considered all 4 links and explain why, how & what i know to be true: in the meantime, here are another couple of links for absolute beginners…

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mEfJO0-cTis

https://file.scirp.org/pdf/GEP_2017042515155372.pdf

In the second link, you can read how Lockheed Martin assisted the Chinese in Weather Modification techniques, before the Beijing Olympics to improve air quality and I would respectfully suggest that you study what Nigel Stanford demonstrates on different forms of Matter, with music first, (in the links i sent to Mucho below), because you really do need to somehow enjoy the steep learning curve, yer’ faced with ! When you begin to comprehend, you will view cloud formations in a whole new light and better relate to how we move matter (gas), with micro-radio-waves and how the effects of sonic wave resonance & modulation, can open your mind or drive you crazy or kill us.

My aim is to inform you & others @OffG as to the precise nature of Corporate & Military AIMs >>> Artificial Ionospheric Mirrors and how these interact with High Auroral Acoustic Research Programmes (some say Active as opposed to Acoustic, but back in the day, i found that the word active is meaningless within most people’s comprehension of Physics). Call it what you want, HAARP was real & productive back in 1987, when the patent was applied for and the patent was confirmed in 1991: after which B.P. bought the Atlantic Richfield Corporation in it’s entirety, (due to much synergy in Alaskan reserves & the Alyeska pipeline), but largely just to own HAARP, under the condition that the Tech. & all developments & experiments were shared with the US D.o.D. for Reagan’s Star Wars programme. Eastlund actually first got the idea, even further back in the early 70’s and in case you didn’t know, the first Hydrogen bomb that was exploded in the upper atmosphere created also an artificial ionospheric mirror. So called chemtrails are just one form of an artificial ionospheric mirror, that reflect & help to stop micro-radio-wave transmissions disappearing into outer space, amongst MANY other scientific consequences, of which Eastlund has warned us all !

If yer’ really interested in climate, i’ll send more links with diagrams & the patents, of what has been largely secretly going on, since it appears likely, this all happened way before you were born. There’s a second part to the “Why in the world are they spraying?” documentary, also worth searching, given your apparent lack of knowledge. Let me know after considering all the links, thus far, & on opening the Cymatics link, you’ll find Automatica Robots vs Music from Nigel, where there also no tricks involved in his very expensive destructive demonstrations.

Good job Nigel understands what he’s doing or he’d be dead by now 🙂

Denis it is a very interesting analysis confirming many of our instinctive scepticism of the MSM messages.

if you can indulge further?

The neolib/con narrative construction and management is indeed deep rooted does your research trace the trajectory and participants?

Is it coincidental that Putins interview with the FT (available verbatim at the Kremlin site btw for these interested in more than the selective screeching from the msm) appears to say exactly the same about the (neo) liberal con game?

Denis Rancourt
Denis Rancourt

Yes, DunGroanin, the Putin FT interview is amazing. Putin always only says what he thinks folks are ready to receive. Also, it’s like he’s reading from my Report, at times. He describes the “elephant curve”, the Trump electoral phenomenon, etc., perfectly. The Chinese and Russians have figured out exactly what is going on and their patient course in trying the correct it. Putin also applies domestic policy that counters the pathological aspects of Neo-Liberal “values”. His domestic engineering for the long-term is remarkable, and would merit sociological study. He wants a distinct Russia to counter excessive globalist expansionism, and he knows how to apply diplomacy in this transition era of empire decline. He also has clear red lines militarily and never bluffs.

DunGroanin
DunGroanin

Appreciate your reply.

I was particularly impressed by Putins recall of numbers on specific questions by Barber (FT) – who either burnt all his bridges or must be immensly pissed off with how the interview was represented in the wider msm.

I am not in any way a long term Putin fan. But I read his SCO presidency ascendencey speech from earlier this month as well and it seems to create some hope in my mind of a different and kinder vision for humanity than just the neolib con game that we in the west have endured.

I hope.

Phew, thanks for the link, not good news on a Rainy & violently Windy day: I can only assume that due to the weather engineering by NATZO, it has become essential to formulate a contingency plan & strategy against starvation, in future. I live directly under the weather that drifts in Russia’s direction in Eastern Europe and have witnessed the NATO Geo-engineering efforts and my garden has directly suffered, badly … since 2004, ‘progressively’ a radical change.

This climate change propaganda is a complete distraction from what is truly causing our annually more extreme severe weather events and the loss of morning dew and these ‘events’ were wholly predicted by many scientists who understand the affects of AIMs, Artificial Ionospheric Mirrors with solar reflection methodology and China & Russia have both been acquiring direct experience in this direction, including assistance from Lockheed Martin for the Beijing Olympics in 2008, to improve air quality

In December 2017, for the whole month of December, Moscow received a new world record of just 6 minutes sunshine … for the whole month.
Need I say more than, usually after it has snowed here, we get sunshine and it was always so … and last year we got a huge dose of Orange Snow, that they blamed on sand Africa, (which I have real experience, but this was NOT sand), though my wind direction here was from Turkey ! IMHO, we need a global moratorium on engineering the weather ASAP, that we may give nature a chance to recover, coz’ if we carry on tainting and painting a false scientific picture of the Thermodynamics involved in the extremely narrow parameters of our Biosphere, we will accelerate warming far faster than will ever be manageable in future … for human existence.

Denis: a big compliment on your report and i’m really pleased that you’ve provoked so much discussion of the constructive type.

From the Science of Humanities onto your early speciality, Physics: whilst I appreciate it is clearly stated ‘former’ full professor of Physics, (chuckle, were you demobbed or robbed of your interest ? ), I think you can already guess what i’m going to ask you.

Can we & do we engineer the Earth’s weather for strategic & financial gain ? and is this not something that commands a Global Moratorium as soon as humanly possible, in order to at least come to terms with what we’ve done scientifically in this dept. , already ?

Denis Rancourt
Denis Rancourt

“Can we & do we engineer the Earth’s weather for strategic & financial gain ?” —- Answering “yes or no” to this question would not be a valid or truthful answer.

The question is, in many ways, a loaded question, IMO. The mechanisms whereby human activity affects weather and regional climate are many and diverse, from land-use changes, to land and water management practices, to high-tech methods. It comes up often, so I have added this to my list of next articles to write, or at least an op-ed.

Check this out for background in one area of this question: “Anatomy of the false link between forest fires and anthropogenic CO2” by me, May 2016, Research Gate, DOI: 10.13140/RG.2.1.2059.6087

The contradictions of Climate Change alarmism make it look more like a religion than science. For instance, the alarmists demand the end of the use of fossil fuels, whilst asserting that endless economic growth can continue. They push for a “green economy”, which is based on steel, but no one knows how to make steel without burning coal, which is their most despised of all fossil fuels. They fly around the world in jets, which emit CO2 into the atmosphere where there no plants to use it. They participate in global conferences that have carbon footprints the size of cities. And all that is required to be a “good” person is to believe that Climate Change is a catastrophe, say “mea culpa” and carry on “sinning”; and all that is required to be a “bad” person is to be unpersuaded or sceptical: nothing to do with the actual size of one’s carbon footprint.

You have omitted Steve’s quotes around “green economy”, which can be (in your case, could have been) important in construing the poster’s intent (as well as omitting at least the first of the two commas enclosing the following clause, which you have rendered in upper case–not essential, but more generally helpful in parsing any such qualified text). No surprises there, then.

As an aside, I did not wish to put words into Steve’s argument that he had not placed there himself, but he has now clarified his post (which didn’t need clarification – see his use of the phrases “self evident” and–twice–“so called“). QED. Steve’s original post needed no clarification (so your question of him was both superfluous and misdirected), only your shoddily slap-dash reading of it did.

in a post in which he consistently distances himself from said “alarmists”. So he’s saying many of them, excluding himself, have that double standard. That is, they’re saying it, not him. You may quibble whether the double standard he maintains–and describes–actually exists but if you allow him to maintain it, as he does, what is there to quibble about? Don’t you know how most new steel is processed, from iron ore on up?

Steve Hayes

Antipropo. The claim that the so called green economy is based on steel is self evident. However, here are some examples. Wind turbines are made from steel. Indeed, steel is the main material in all renewable energy. Electric cars are made from steel. Trains are made from steel. Bicycles are made from steel. In fact steel is essential to the so called green economy.

Now we are cooking with gas: which is moving someway to almost treat neoliberal globalisation as a fully globalised institutionalised global economic global phenomena.

I say ‘almost’: because the author still focuses on ‘dollar hegemony’ …but dollar hegemony is contingent on ‘eurodollar (euro$) hegemony’ …which is not well understood as it interlinks every country through the offshore unregulated euro$ markets. (Even sanctioned nation states are self-organisationally linked with other nation states – no one is isolated).

I’m sure everyone has read at least one of Shaxson’s works by now. Neoliberal globalisation IS the euro$ and the unregulated space the offshore markets created to circumvent onshore regulation, taxation, and transparent accountability to (potential) democratic oversight. The TNCs and the ‘shadow sovereign’ Inner Party of the Trans-National Suprastate (TNS) were having none of that. So they created their own self-funded ‘euro$ superstate’ power domain ‘elsewhere’ and ‘offshore’. Which came to dominate global trade: which (by volume 25%) is still centred on the City (re: “The Spiders Web”).

Shaxson details the start of this rise – from the 1950s creation myth of FSU petro-dollars being parked in ‘Londongrad’ – which caused Wall St to relocate to the City. It was this relocation that afforded Wall St the financial clout to buy Congress, the Senate, and the Pentagon; etc …a phenomenon he calls “country capture”. But he is less forthcoming about how this offshore power space (a ‘smooth space for an economy of unaccountable trans-national flows’ …in DeleuzeGuattarian terminology) became a ‘global capture’ phenomenon. Which, in the last thirty years, is exactly what it did.

Let me skip the political character masking and reveal the mechanism. The ‘petrodollar’ is actually the ‘petro-euro$’. All licit and illicit oil revenues go through the offshore space of the trans-national interbanking service. There they mix with every kind of dirty money and laundered black money flows from human trafficking, drugs and arms trading, conflict and blood minerals (diamond laundering for instance) …no questions asked (the ‘global laundromat’ centred on the City). The grey and black dollars become the monetary base for chains of interbank lending – with no reserve requirement. Euro$ are not actual money – they are a ‘neo-money’ form of virtual currency (interbank ledger money). In other words: they do not even have a piece of paper to back them. They are a virtual multiplier based on fiat. That is your global economy. A virtual debt mountain multiplication built on worthless fiat.

Things are further complicated by the post-2007 rise of the ‘shadow banks’ – which is a specific offshore phenomena. A shadow bank is an institution that engages in gambling, essentially …hedge funds (another specific offshore phenomena); etc. Confusingly, most of the major banks also shadow banks – depending on the risk of lending and returns. This has given rise to the bloated derivatives market – which as an ancillary debt mountain built on gambling on gambling on commodities priced in worthless fiat – only 2% of which results in an actual trade or commodity delivery [Source: TNI].

Focusing on guns alone as a definition of imperialism is in itself character masking the fact that an obscenely polarised possessing plutocracy has risen in lockstep with neoliberal globalisation to completely dominate global trade and global politics. And they are not all American. Less so are they all Jewish …the TNS ‘Inner Party’ of billionaire shadow sovereigns are stateless, non-dom for tax and global in residency. These are the ‘ultra-imperialists’.

Do they all work together? Do they fuck. There are competing interests that play out geo-economically and geo-politically …but just like in the big ‘Rothschild’ meta-conspiracy theory …there really are those who benefit from both sides of the conflict. And they are controlling policy, polity, and to an extent, even psychology – by financial terrorism and imperialism …from the offshore shadows.

So the global geo-political economy may not be totally integrated; but it is nevertheless totally interlinked. This interlinking is the global economic systems great weakness and fragility – everything is linked to everything else. As Jack Rasmus explains: the global price mechanism is also the global transmission mechanism. All asset classes – including derivatives – are proxy stand-ins for each other. If one fails: they all fail. Similarly, the trans-national interbanking system consists of chains of virtual loans that extend globally (interbank ledger money). Most (60%) are priced in euro$/dollars (there are ‘euro-yen’ and ‘euro-euro’ markets too, just to confuse things, that account for almost all the rest. The ‘euro-yuan’ (RMB) failed.)

No boo-hoo America: but the ‘exorbitant privilege’ is also an ‘exorbitant liability’ and source of global systemic fragility …there are simply not enough dollars to support the multiplication of the euro$ to facilitate global trade. This is in part due to the Triffin Paradox. Mediating interest rates to facilitate domestic policy (feeding the local vultures with tax bonanzas) negatively impacts the global economy. It takes dollars out of the trans-national markets and parks them in US domestic assets: which destroys the monetary base for multiplied euro$ mediated global trade. A ‘liquidity crisis’ develops offshore which leads to delinquencies and defaults …contagion and moral hazard spreads through the proxy price mechanism – and the whole global economy begins to implode.

There is no need to take me at face value: the BIS produced a paper (Shin 2012) detailing this as the real reason for the Global Financial Crisis – GFC 1.0. There was a $2-6.5tn liquidity deficiency offshore on the eve of Bear Stearns (who were unusually heavily exposed). A bit like, say Deutsche Bank, which has a $43tn derivative exposure – bigger than the ECB or anyone else’s ability to bail out or in. And that exposure is not neatly isolated or containable – if DB goes …the whole house of cards collapses.

Which with two fucking great Black Swans – one trans-Pacific, and one trans-Atlantic – swimming in full view …shouldn’t be too long now. Trust me, it is not something anyone would wish for.

So, if you can be bothered to get thusfar: here are the points I have been trying to make. I get it that everyone hates the dollar hegemony …but the successor is likely to be much worse for humanity – especially the already poor …a class which is rapidly expanding to include 85% of humanity, if not more.

As a global reserve: the dollar is limited as a part-domestic onshore currency. There are simply not enough dollars to meet demand (search “China dollar shortage”). Dollar delimitation is one phenomena that is stalling the exponential expansion of global trade. An offshore euro$ liquidity crisis will bring ALL countries into the implosion – including China (in fact, China is a potential source and epicentre: Steve Keen). More likely, no one will know where it starts (the Black Swan: expect the unexpected) …in fact, we are already in a 2007 redux and the implosion and slow motion collapse could well be underway.

The dollar is not big enough to refloat the boat on its own. This is what China and Russia recognise: and they have a plan – the SDR. China’s de-dollarisation strategy is not what you think. The yuan/RMB is not big enough to be a global reserve – that was never the intention (see PBoC Chairman Xhou’s 2009 paper for the BIS). The yuan/RMB will be internationalised by proxy – by being part of the SDR basket. No one can predict the future; but if they – the TNS Inner Party – activate the SDR in response to future crises (we are in permanent crisis that will never resolve: the solutions – more monetarism, more ‘easing’, more credit/debt deflation cycles – are the source of the problem …an irresolvable contradiction) …you read it here first.

Eventually, by increments, the SDR will be the new reserve. Which is terrible for humanity. A centralised reserve unaccountable to everyone but the TNS Inner Party. If your policy is anywhere left of far-centre-right: you better be able to fund it with seashells …because you won’t get fuck all from the global central reserve bank dominated central bank. Future socialism will be globalised neoliberalism …which some might argue, it already is.

Oh yeah: as a post-script …SDG Agenda 2030 neoliberal globalisation is exactly what Russia/China are in the forefront of pushing for. They are the rebranded neoliberal globalists now. The boss man Xi even said it out loud at SPIEF …”China wants globalisation” or “China supports economic globalisation” …depending on translation. If and when we understand ‘dollar hegemony’ is actually “euro$ hegemony” – and “yuan hegemony” is not even a potentiality – except within the SDR basket …it might stimulate left-liberal ‘progressives’ to become anti-neoliberal, anti-globalisation, anti-capitalists …for their own economic good.

The evolution starts in the imperial heartlands, if and when we see that there will never be any good coming from actually-extant socialism …which is actually a neoliberal ‘pro-business’ City of London facilitating transmission vehicle. If, and when, it becomes accepted that opening of the trans-national space for capital flows exists – a new and expanded definition of imperialism is required …of neoliberal globalised imperialism of financial capital over humanity and environment. The limited view of big guns = imperialism is included – not negated – by this metacritical overview and sublation (Aufhebung: non-negating sublation). The end of dollar hegemony – as is of course, dollar hegemony – to be fiercely resisted. An alternative deglobalisation and return to community based socialisation – without the overfinancialisation ‘Shadow Sovereignty’ has to be found. Otherwise, we are just like large fowl voting for Christmas.

Shaxson details the start of this rise – from the 1950s creation myth of FSU petro-dollars being parked in ‘Londongrad’ – which caused Wall St to relocate to the City.

Wall St. relocated to the City in the 1950s? That would have been around the same time Eisenhower was threatening Eden with crashing the pound sterling if Britain didn’t pull out of the Suez venture. Doesn’t make much sense.

The yuan/RMB will be internationalised by proxy – by being part of the SDR basket.

The yuan has been part of the SDR basket for years now. They’ve been aggressively lobbying for a move away from the dollar as a world currency and to the SDR instead for at least a decade, too, but Uncle Scam always vetoes it.

Eventually, by increments, the SDR will be the new reserve. Which is terrible for humanity. A centralised reserve unaccountable to everyone but the TNS Inner Party.

Doesn’t sound much different from what we have now, just bigger. To whom are the Fed and the ECB accountable? Personally, I’d prefer to give Chartalism or MMT a try.

According to Shaxson: the communist Nomenklatura started sending their petro-dollars overseas – to evade any sanctions or confiscations in NY. London banks offered the best haven. This gave London a glut of dollars they could lend out – at better rates and returns than the highly regulated US banks could offer. Which attracted the main US banks to open London branches – to get a piece of the action.

If you’ve got a copy of ‘Treasure Islands’: it’s on page 88-89. It started in 1957 with a small deposit by Moscow Narodny bank – then grew from there. I should have made clearer that the actual development was over a 40 year period. The offshore unregulated lending made Thatcher’s ‘Big Bang’ and the repeal of Glass-Steagal inevitable – creating ‘too-big-to-fail’ and enabling the 2007 GFC.

Re-reading: I should have mentioned Eurobonds – that started in 1963 …offshore bearer bonds – just like in the movies.

The RMB/yuan joined the SDR basket effective October 1st, 2016 …not quite 3 years. What I am supposing is that there will be a point when they do not have a choice. The G7 central banks acted in collu$ion to bail out the GFC with QE. Powell followed by Carnage started to unwind with QT – tightening with rate rises and selling assets …and the emerging markets (EMEs)- particularly Argentina and Turkey nearly went bust. So they stopped.

The EMEs are the ‘canary in the coalmine’. A strong dollar causes capital flight. The only way to keep the whole Ponzi scheme going is with excess liquidity – ‘easing’. They know it is fucked up – Powell testified as much before he was the Chairman. There is no way to unwind QE …except more QE.

They do not give a shit if the markets collapse. They get to buy all our assets for cents on the dollar …or any other currency. Mnuchin made his fortune that way – the ‘Foreclosure King’. Jack Rasmus calls it ‘carrion capital’.

To give them their due: China and Russia really do not want a collapse. That’s why China sells its Treasury holdings – not to prop up the dollar, which is the unavoidable consequence – they are propping up the euro$ …keeping global trade going.

What they do not want to do is use their huge currency reserves for day to day trading …and they are running short of dollars. Which is potentially bad for all of us.

Officially, global debt is $244tn or 318% of global GDP. I think those figures are primitive and vastly underestimated. The whole point of ‘offshore’ is to conceal the amount of money being borrowed and created. Suffice to say, they are not going to ‘print’ all that. All that ‘the Treasury can just write a cheque to itself’ stuff is a bit naive. For $300tn say: it would render capital meaningless.

But what do I know. My only motivation is to document how meaningless the whole system already is. When enough people find the true value in themselves – and not in proxy fiat or virtual figures on a digitised screen …that have lost any connection to anything real or truly valuable …the system can be transformed. Quite how many crises cycles and debt deflationary collapses we have to go through to get there I cannot predict. What happens when a bank with $43tn derivatives exposure implodes? I do not know: but I am expecting anti-capitalism to boon soon.

Much appreciate both your insightful and indepth comments here BigB. I admit that the financial terminology tends to go over my head, however I do recognise the approaching dark clouds; “with two fucking great Black Swans – one trans Pacific the other trans Atlantic swimming in full view” and as you point out the situation of Deutsche Bank which I knew about, as I knew about the massive levels of debt worldwide, but I struggle to understand the other stuff. We are facing a nightmare scenario, espec for the poor and vulnerable. That much I get. I survive by selling The Big Issue mag, a NZ citizen living in Australia, with no assets, no savings, not entitled to welfare here, so yeah mate, I know what’s coming. As you say, its all a massive ponzi scheme. Globalised Neoliberalism has screwed humanity and screwed the Planet.

“Trust me, it is not something anyone would wish for.”

Actually, I do wish for it B, since the whole insane system has to be dissolved in the face of the Synergising Global Crises – of which actually-real climate shift is one, despite all the denialist-propaganda uses to which it’s been put.

Add to the SGC list: the Sixth Extinction (already in train); human population overshoot (yes, also *already* real, despite all the murky propagandising); peak energy (utterly crucial issue! Study the EROEI concept, with particular reference to Charlie Hall’s work); peak every-essential-commodity (also partly here already, depending on which essential – to hitech industrial ‘civilisation’, that is – you’re considering); catastrophic de-forestation and grassland desertification; peak water; peak chernozem/terra-preta (worldwide); and on…

In the face of these steadily-tightening screws, there’s no chance at all for the current criminally-insane globalist-deep-state financial system to survive (thank god!), especially not the utterly lunatic, wholly-hallucinatory derivatives stupidity. Let it all come down! Global jubilee, for the sake of improving monetary health worldwide – probably to be based on heavily re-priced-upwards gold, considering what the Russia-China duopoly are doing in that department.

Oh, and btw B: you don’t sound like a writer who favours Illiterate-USAmerican English over Properly-Educated British English. So – one phenomenon; several phenomena: Greek formats; v. old-fashioned for modern Ignorant-International-English speakers, but at least properly educated… 🙂

Excellent article, though there is very little chance of reversal, barring an unexpected cataclysmic event. The reason for this, is that it is almost impossible to change the mass brainwashed mind, particularly when it is re-inforced with daily propaganda. People are not interested in evidence, facts or truth, if it conflicts with their deeply held belief. The trust in authority is overwhelming. This is true of any religion, or any belief. Ask any 9/11 truther. No one wants to know. The same is true of any global warmer, or any priest, monk, rabbi, preacher, politician or MSM “journalist”

Western Civilisation is almost certainly doomed, until the unexpected cataclysmic event, which will most likely end up with the death of billions through starvation and cold, when all the power systems fail. A completely unnecessary event, but seemingly well planned by the psychopaths in control.

After the public acceptance of controlled demolitions and clear collusion, cover ups & conspiracy to deceive & Defraud Billions of people & of TRILLIONS of $$$$$$ and most importantly thereafter, listening to Bill Binney & Kurt Weibe’s analysis of the Surveillance State & Parallel Platforms, from within the NSA … after the 11th Sept. 2001, having watched all evidence disappear in WTC7 live in real time, the collapse of which was announced well in advance by the Psychic BBC, what more did anyone need to know ?

I upped sticks & stereo and moved to the frontline of this conflict today, back in 2004, after serious analysis & well ahead of NATO’s arrival, specifically to observe their dirty ways, in advance of their insidious methods of societal & cultural imposition of Corporate Computerised Fascist Collusion to usurp cultural, national & political sovereignties: successively, using Parallel Platforms, for the record, including weather modification methodology here now, on a mountain in what was a ‘No Fly Zone’ en route to Asia. As a neighbour of the Balkan wars in the 90’s, working with many family casualties of all ‘sides’ & persuasions, it was harder at first to see the pattern of NATO’s strategy, but from 2001 onwards it was easy to see & inexcusable what the media had done, even @theguardian WMD’s ? & Blair still today, FFS … not worth discussing !

Living above an extinct Volcano, that suffered a tectonic slide, not a cloud in my sky today, yet again I have NOT a clear Blue Sky, indeed a massive white haze exists in the upper atmosphere ! & it never disappears, with or without cloud cover. This was not the case in 2004 & never the case until NATO arrived, after buying their way in. It is called an Artificial Ionospheric Mirror, that assists in reflecting micro-radio-waves back to Earth, (amongst other particulates & experiments), and is designed & created to protect me from the sun, NATO says.

But seriously now, wtf does NATO know, RESPECT or SERIOUSLY consider in terms of real time Science on Climate, Habitat & Culture, let alone Humanities, other than Corporate dictated Computerised Fascist Collusion, to conquer the world, step by step, with Tech. & double bookkeeping (parallel platforms) for another New Pearl Harbour . . . ?

This is the best explanation I have found:

https://www.corbettreport.com/why-big-oil-conquered-the-world-video/

Watch from the 2:50 min. mark if you don´t have time to watch the whole thing. You can see the big oil executives having an epiphany and spelling out their mea culpa.

The problem is to see these conglomerates exlusively as big oil and not as part of the all encompassing monopoly of the ultra rich. In short, they would benefit from the subsidies for “green energies” which would be paid with our tax money, our pensions, from financial schemes like carbon trading, from developing green (polluting) technologies like carbon capture…It is all explained in depth and sourced in that amazing documentary.

Also, the best way to guide the discourse is to fund both sides and to create the notion that there are the goodies and the baddies. On one side Big oil (the baddies) on the other side organisations like WWF (created by the owners of the baddies group, the Royal Dutch Shell, the Dutch royalty…) the UN climate panel (created by an oil and mining magnate close to the Rockefellers (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maurice_Strong) and so on.

Give it a go, I used to use that as an argument just a few months ago.

Cheers.

And see this as well:

https://money.cnn.com/2017/04/18/investing/big-oil-paris-deal-trump/index.html

“But these traditional energy companies have a vested financial interest in the Paris deal. That’s because COP21’s crack down on carbon emissions favors natural gas, which emits much less pollution than coal.

While Exxon, BP and Shell are primarily identified as oil companies, they are actually diversified energy firms that rely heavily on natural gas to make money.

For instance, 42% of Exxon’s total daily production last quarter was actually in natural gas, according to FactSet. BP and Shell also lean on natural gas for a large chunk of their output.

“These companies view natural gas as a key growth area going forward for them. It just makes sense for them to be at the table,” said Brian Youngberg, senior energy analyst at Edward Jones.

Natural gas production has soared over the past decade, thanks to the abundance of shale gas in North America.”

All well and goid but if you know some Koin and take a look at the good book you will find the following:-

“No man shal either buy or sell except he who has the signifier of the non specific lifeform”

Now whether that term ‘non specific lifeform should be termed ‘beast’ is quite the question.

What is the mark or signifier of all lifeforms.? Is it not carbon.? So should the passage be more properly translated into English:- ” no man shall buy or sell except he whose money is carbon the signifier of all life.?

The lie not only brings destructive outcomes in order to justify and reinforce its own sustainability – but does so at your expense – because the lie is the ongoing sacrifice of true life now to an usurping mind.

The mind-capture or mind-control runs a post truth society – in which what is true is whatever deceit given power determines to be true for its own ‘sustainability’.

“… the true object of propaganda is neither to convince nor even to persuade, but to produce a uniform pattern of public utterance in which the first trace of unorthodox thought immediately reveals itself as a jarring dissonance.” (~ Alan Bullock)

‘Don’t let truth get in the way of a good story’ has a humourous aspect in terms of exaggerated dramatic effect in the telling – but the defence against the dissonant in those who are identity-invested in their story as true operates as an extension of survival reflex – as the denial and defence against perceived chaos under the belief in an imposed order.

Attacking the symptoms or killing the messenger may serve the industrial marketing complex in its pharming of humans for marketshare or indeed mindshare, but only to suppress the immediate need or call for healing/alignment into a narrative displacement in which a ‘saving’ spin is assigned to a conflict management system by means of focusing in fear and insinuating guilt from positions of power or trust.

Shock, fear and manipulated sympathies operate the undermining of consciousness to then frame it in ‘MUST DO SOMETHING NOW!’ as a persistent fight-flight mind-capture. This is where the true choice is hidden BY reaction.

Surely it is now possible to see that lies always hide in the form, image and symbol of the accepted true – as a masking or hidden agenda. If you can see this in any one situation then you are equipped to uncover it in all – EXCEPTING your investment and attachment to lies that you WANT to be true. Exceptionalism, double standards and self-specialness rise from WANTING truth to be different than it is. While this WANTING is given hospitality and priority in your thought, the mind is effectively cuckolded by its OWN thinking – dissonant or blocking to the transparency of life to it true Movement.

To such a set of mind – the movement or living communication of life as our being, intimately felt and known – is framed as threat and dissonant to a false sense of self-possession and control.

“Everything is BACKWARDS” (Michael Ellner) because our thinking is predicated upon a misidentifiction that in a sense has developed an operating system in which to run itself – the ‘world’ as WE judge and make it to be. A self-conditioned ‘reality’ by which to sustain the experience of a private sense of control as an exclusive sense of self reality.

Such a mind HAS to do whatever exclusion-thinking determines in order to ‘survive’ – but must do so as YOUR allegiance and identification. It needs you to run. Because it has no power or existence apart from what you give it. There is an inner counterpart to a world seen without and suffered as real OVER us.
What you WANT to be true (with all the force of psychic emotional investment) conflicts with All That Is. And while you use division to get a sense of self you have the results or rewards of your thinking. Discernment moves WITHIN wholeness.

As for our physics and cosmology – it is no less distorted and framed in its corporate and institutional investment. The ‘model’ is deemed ‘too big to fail’. Such a model is must extend itself into insane contortions to accommodate ‘incoming’ challenges to its veracity.

Love of truth is Everything. Marketisation and weaponisation as an illusion of possession and control COSTS awareness of everything true. The willingness of the many to suckle on and serve insane agenda is maintained by deceit associated with fear and coercion. But if you notice this ‘voice’, you can choose not to react as if it is your truth and open a space of willingness in which to see what a mind-reaction kept hidden. Fear and coercion operates a negative identity and agenda – as determined by what is feared or hated and NOT wanted. No room then for what you truly want and are.

The trade in drugs is estimated to be worth $400 billion a year (that´s the mainstream figure, it has to be much bigger), it accounts for 8% of all international trade, according to the United Nations.

HSBC and other groups have been caught laundering to the order of 380 billion of drug money. UN advisors have stated that drug money saved the banks during the 2008 crisis.

You should pay attention.

I do pay attention you impertinent prat.I would like to know the source of the figures you offer.Also assuming them to be correct for a moment, and 8% of all international trade is indeed drug trade,even if the US was responsible for all of it it would hardly add up to an existential matter for the US and its economy.

https://www.un.org/press/en/1997/19970624.SOCNAR.764.html That is the source.

And perhaps you should read again, you missed the part where I mentioned that drug money saved the banks from collapse. I quote from a Guardian article I don´t want to link:

“Antonio Maria Costa, head of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime, said he has seen evidence that the proceeds of organised crime were “the only liquid investment capital” available to some banks on the brink of collapse last year.”

You should know also that drug money is perfect for financing secret operations (see the Iran contra work of Gary Webb). And that explains why opium production land in Afghanistan rose from 8000 hectares to 200,000 from 2001 to 2016. That´s why my country, Mexico, became also one of the main producers of opiates since the Plan Merida was signed with the US in 2006.

Here you go JOhn, from your favourite establishment web resource, wikipedia. Notice the massive drop in opium production in 2001. That was the dastardly Taliban who sought to eliminate it. Then we invaded, and since then opium production has never been higher, there is now a global heroin epidemic etc. Do the math.

The folk who you usually get your info from, the mainstream media, the ones who feed your brain with horse manure every day and night, they work on behalf of some very, very evil people.

They have manipulated your whole belief system for the entire duration of your life, through their bogus yet well funded media outlets and things like the education system, so now you have a belief system based on lies. They are your number one enemy, but they are so clever and devious that they have manipulated you to believe that they are your friend and protector.

WTF do you think the – long-in-preparation, pre-11/9/01 – US invasion of Afghanistan was about then, Mr. (most appropriately-named) Thatcher? “Getting the well-patsied (official) authors of the 11/9 atr0cities”, perhaps? Really? They should have invaded Tel Aviv if they’d been serious about that.

Work carefully, in depth through Chris Bollyn’s sustained, sterling, genuine-investigative-journalist work, if in doubt about that assertion:

http://www.bollyn.com/

One of the US invasion’s (real) war aims has been substantially achieved: obliterating the Taliban’s near-extirpation of the opium-poppy agriculture, and getting it well back up to where it was pre-Taliban. Job done, thanks to expendable US grunts protecting the trade! Western bank profits on drug-sales and earnings-laundry well back in operation – as was always intended.

Exactly my thoughts. The global warming scare and the exploitation of gender/ethnic grievances/divisions has become so ubiquitous that there is no doubt in my mind that they are the outpost of a psychological war against the working class (and pretty much everyone else who is not a billionaire).

This needs to be addressed. Many of those who are skeptical of every other type of propaganda campaign, of every other government or corporate institution, jump into the bandwagon with enthusiasm if the discussion is about “the future of planet earth©” , “the lives of our children©”; or if is it about celebrating gay pride© (perhaps by waving the rainbow flag with the logo of a financial entity, while throwing coins to kids dressed as drag queens, the SIS building dressed for the occasion on the background), or bombing Afghan women to save them from patriarchal oppression, or to celebrate that the CIA director is a woman… Or to demonise each and every white working class man in Britain, those privileged miners, construction workers and homeless men who should be ashamed for their colonial past, specially now that there is a mixed race lady in the royal family .

The table is being set for a social clash and the most draconian laws we can imagine.

¿What wouldn´t be justified to end “privilege©” racism or inequality (as understood by the kleptocracy)?

¿And to prevent the end of life in our planet?

I will read the report with utmost interest. Thank you for this.
