The Donald and The Deep State

For his myriad faults, it’s easy to see why Donald Trump’s anti-Globalist rhetoric has struck a chord with the American electorate. His vocal opposition to Neomercantile trade deals, his rhetorical rejection of “Sustainable Development” on the world stage; The Donald is doubtlessly a captivating figure to the disposessed, downtrodden American voter seeking something – anything – to halt the ravages wrought by World Order Machiavellians.

If nothing else, watching Trump’s bombast single-handedly stymie a potential continuation of the Bush Crime Family Dynasty (to the ire of Neocons everywhere) has made for fantastic entertainment. Watching as a similar fate befalls the Clinton Syndicate, whose war crimes, Nation-State destroying “charitable” frauds, drug and arms-running accolades and ever-increasing body count deserve open scrutiny, has also made for a good bit of fun.

Perhaps the most satisfying aspect of this public airing of Bush/Clinton dirty laundry is that, in many cases, the two share more than a few articles of clothing. Both, through the Clinton Foundation, are complicit in looting the nation of Haiti and “disappearing” millions in charitable donations for earthquake relief – a fraud that preceded the United Nations’ introduction of a deadly outbreak of cholera on the island. Both, too, gained a significant amount of (deep) political prestige and economic clout from the CIA drug trade – as Vice President during the cocaine-fueled 1980s, Bush the Elder is as complicit in the Iran-Contra drug trade as anyone alive. And as then-Governor of Arkansas, home of the Agency’s infamous Mena, AK “drug drop” operation, Bill Clinton may as well have been a Regional Director of Cocaine, Inc.

Tracing this interlocking web of serial political criminals is one of the best methods we have of demonstrating the pervasive racket of oligarchy that rules America (and the world) today. The stunning and informative artwork of the late Mark Lombardi, outlining the connections of banking, political, and drug trade interests, is a stark reminder of how truly intertwined the network of the Deep State truly is:

LombardiBCCI

All this, however, begs questions: Can any political figure be as successful in the Two-Party Racket as The Donald has been without being connected to this web of Deep State actors? As a product of the “go-go, Greed is Good” 80s, is Trump’s fortune connected to the drug and arms dealers of the Iran-Contra/BCCI/S&L scandals also synonymous with the era? And if so, have such connections continued through to the present?

What consummate insiders of the Anglo-American Establishment have Trump’s ear, and what does this spell for his rousing “anti-Globalist” rhetoric coming to fruition?

The Donald and the Deep State Drug Traders

It is no exaggeration to say that the Bush and Clinton empires have been built, in large part, on the backs of the drug trade. This knowledge within the broader conspiracy culture has been widely circulated since at least the release of the 1995 underground hit, The Mena Connection:


Given the sheer nature and scope of the Deep State drug and arms trade, perhaps it is not surprising to find that Mr. Trump has his fair share of connections to its players – and not insignificant ones, at that. A great deal of work in unearthing these relationships has been done by investigative journalist Daniel Hopsicker, best known for his documentaries and books on the CIA drug trade as well as the 9/11 Venice, Florida coverup. A seasoned sleuth in his own right, Hopsicker has recently documented a longstanding relationship between Donald Trump and a number of Deep State actors, like CIA asset Meyer Lansky’s partner, Louis Lesser, who Trump purchased the Taj Mahal Casino and Hotel from in Atlantic City.

Another of these characters is known CIA asset and Saudi arms dealer, Adnan Khashoggi, a man whose connections to the Iran-Contra affair and the Deep State at large are far beyond the scope of this article.

In his post entitled, “Donald Trump and the Palm Beach Homies,” it is alleged that Trump purchased Adnan Khashoggi’s yacht, at the time the longest in the world, in the mid-90s from the cash-strapped, scandal-ridden Saudi “Man of Mystery.” Khashoggi is also said to have attended The Donald’s most recent wedding, neither of which are damning connections in and of themselves; they do, however, demonstrate a friendly relationship.

The most concrete evidence escalating their relationship from casual acquaintances to potential partners in crime, however, comes from a local Palm Beach source. Hopsicker says in a recent interview:

“I have information from a source over in Palm Beach that when Adnan Khashoggi was under indictment for ripping off the second largest bank in Thailand, and INTERPOL was searching for him, he was hiding out in a bungalow at Mar-a-Lago.” (One of Donald Trump’s real estate developments in Palm Beach.)

-Daniel Hopsicker

Being friends with a spook is one thing – helping said spook to avoid detection in the wake of yet another “Too Big to Jail” bankster looting of the developing world is something else entirely.

Khashoggi isn’t the only Deep State actor in the Palm Beach milieu connected to Trump – take, for example, billionaire Carl Icahn, who Trump has mused about making Secretary of Treasury in his potential administration. Icahn, who is also an associate of Khashoggi, is known to Florida locals for his “investment” in a St. Petersburg airline whose only product “turned out to be 5.5 tons of cocaine busted on a company plane,” as Hopsicker puts it.

Trump’s connections to international intelligencia’s drug trade go beyond even the figures mentioned in the aforementioned Hopsicker article; when The Donald proclaimed earlier this year that Richard Haas, long-time President of the Council on Foreign Relations, was one of the few men that he “really likes and respects,” I began in earnest looking for more associative connections between Trump and the Anglo-American Establishment.

While the majority of the Mainstream Media has seen fit to paint Trump as a pariah within the Silicon Valley community, at least some of its powerbrokers, its true movers and shakers, find themselves in Trump’s camp. One such character of prominence is Peter Thiel, a founding member of the aptly-named “PayPal Mafia” and witting CIA cybersecurity subcontractor. A vocal Trump supporter who was given a prime speaking slot at this year’s Republican Convention, most were keen on focusing solely upon superficial banalities like Thiel’s sexual preferences.

thielimg

Far more important are the multinational giants he’s built over the years, foremost of which is PayPal. Already suspected to be complicit in colluding with NSA, it’s almost inconceivable to think that one of the largest payment processors in the world isn’t also involved in drug trade money laundering.

Evidence for this claim comes from HSBC whistleblower John Cruz. As a British bank established in Hong Kong for the express intent of handling profits from the burgeoning opium trade, Mr. Cruz’s former employers are hardly strangers to the drug game. They also prove to be a bit of a one-trick pony, as their documented cooperation in laundering the dirty cash of Mexican drug lords proves that not much has changed about HSBC’s business model in over a century.

In a video interview interview with Richard Grove of Tragedy and Hope, Cruz outlines how Thiel’s PayPal finds its way into HSBC’s drug kingdom:

Richard Grove: What in your daily work did you start seeing and what started to raise your awareness?

John Cruz: I would see other accounts [under the same Social Security number] beyond the accounts of an individual listed as “Unidentified.” And I would see hundreds, millions, billions, trillions of dollars going through these accounts around the world. And they would just say, “money to, money from,” “transfer in, transfer out.”

And they were just not complete as far as what the money was from. Then you couldn’t find out where the money was coming from, you couldn’t find out where it was going to… you had money going in and out of PayPal and American Express every day in denominations, I mean, on your account alone you could have millions going through PayPal and American Express in 20, 30, 40, 50, 100,000 dollar denominations, even numbers, every day. But you as the main account holder, in your main accounts, could not see this because they’re coded not to print statements. Not to have access to. And they’re labeled as “Unidentified.”

So when you see an account with a billion dollars going through it in one day and you have hundreds of thousands of Social Security numbers attached to that one account? Very suspicious.

Very suspicious, indeed. I’d highly recommend the curious reader listen to the entire interview linked above – but to contrast this network of associations with The Donald himself, one is forced to question if Trump’s rhetoric about drugs and “building a Great Wall” are less about stopping their flow and more about ensuring that only those with DC9s and C130s make their way safely to American markets:

“We are going to build a great border wall to stop illegal immigration, to stop the gangs and the violence, and to stop the drugs from pouring into our communities.”

-Donald Trump

The Donald and the Transhuman Technocrats

Peter Thiel is not your average Silicon Valley tycoon; his belief, his faith, in the technostructure borders on the religious. Admittedly, the odds of finding someone working in tech who’s not an ardent futurist are increasingly low – but Peter Thiel is a man who believes he can literally cheat death and live forever. He’s not merely a technocrat, he is a transhumanist, and a devout one at that.

Thiel also self-identifies as a “libertarian,” a strange choice of words for a man whose company, Palantir, is perhaps one of the most heavily government-subsidized cybersecurity contractors on the planet. It’s also no secret that, in addition to a cast of dubious hedge fund managers, Palantir’s largest .gov financier is none other than In-Q-Tel, the CIA’s venture capital firm. Quite a large degree of hypocrisy from a man who said in a 2014 Wall Street Journal Op-Ed,

“I’m not interested in illegal bullies or government favorites: By ‘monopoly,’ I mean the kind of company that is so good at what it does that no other firm can offer a close substitute.”

-Peter Thiel

Really, now? Are government favorites like PayPal, operating on the SWIFT and Fed Wire systems, exempt from this definition? Or government favorites like Palantir, who are paid massive sums of looted taxpayer dollars to build software that tracks, traces, and surveils the very populous that unwittingly funds it? Thiel’s true character, nothing short of a vulture, is demonstrated in the same op-ed when he “upgrades” the age-old quote from John D. Rockefeller who famously said, “Competition is a sin.”

Thiel’s 21st Century equivalent:

Competition is for losers. If you want to create and capture lasting value, look to build a monopoly.”

-Peter Thiel

Transhumanism, monopoly, and the worst of crony capitalism? A dangerous combination, especially in a man who seems to conjure up the worst elements of Science Fiction in the companies he touches. Also a dangerous man to have anywhere near the levers of power, but given Thiel’s entrenched nature within the “Cybersecurity State,” he will inevitably play a role in The Donald’s administration – to the bane of real libertarians the world over.

But the “PayPal Mafia” Don is hardly the only individual with transhuman ideals who The Donald keeps close. As the officially “unofficial” Trump spokesman, consummate insider and former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is doubtlessly gunning for a potential Trump Cabinet position. Gingrich has said of Trump, “He’s not them. He’s not part of the club. He hasn’t been through the Initiation Rites, he doesn’t belong to the Secret Society.

Screenshot from 2016-09-02 13-30-23

The same, of course, cannot be said of Gingrich himself, as he is among the more high-profile attendees of the Bohemian Grove. Newt doesn’t limit his involvement with the “Mystery Schools” to Germanic festivities in Northern California, though; he is something of a priest in the modern mystery school of transhumanism, having co-authored the infamous NBIC Report and personally coined the term, “The Age of Transitions.”

Screenshot from 2016-09-02 13-27-23

“While American science and technology benefit the entire world, it is vital to recognize that technological superiority is the fundamental basis of the economic prosperity and national security of the United States. We are in an Age of Transitions, when we must move forward if we are not to fall behind, and we must be ready to chart a course forward through constantly shifting seas and winds. Organizations of all kinds, including government itself, must become agile, reinventing themselves frequently while having the wisdom to know which values are fundamental and must be preserved.”

-Newt Gingrich

Newt Gingrich’s segment of the NBIC Report is a fascinating read – and not just for what it sees for the future, nor simply in outlining Newt’s own feelings on the “Age of Transitions,” but in demonstrating the breadcrumbs of suppressed history that have lead us to this point. Gingrich aptly opens his dialogue by mentioning Vannevar Bush, inventor of MEMEX and the precursor to the modern multimedia age.

For more on the transhuman gambit and Newt Gingrich’s role in it, there is an excellent documentary by filmmaker Aaron Franz on the topic:

Regardless of who is (s)elected as the next President of the United States, the next administration will oversee vast changes to internet infrastructure (and the Panopticon it supports). Be it the handover of DNS from America to the U.N., net neutrality, or the draconian “Internet of Things” and “Smart Grid,” the barrel of Technofeudalism’s gun is quickly finding itself turned on humanity at large, if it hasn’t been aimed in that direction all along.

With people like Thiel and Gingrich gearing up to spearhead a “Technological Trump” administration, disarming the State from the top-down in this regard seems an increasingly unlikely outcome.

Or were you really under the impression that we could “Make America Great Again” and restore manufacturing without robots, automation, and artificial intelligence?

Make America What, Again?

Regardless of how one feels about Donald Trump, his numerous connections with the Deep State and key actors within it are utterly undeniable. Whether they are utterly indefensible is ultimately left to the reader. But the primary sources and interlocks outlined throughout this article aren’t merely “guilt by association.” This is how the intelligence community itself maps out potential “threat vectors” when tracking their own targets:

“People use human networks to organize the control of resources and geography. No person alone can control anything of significance. Presidents, drug lords and CEOs rely on people to execute their strategies and are constrained by the capabilities and interests of the people who work for them. Identifying these networks may be a daunting task depending on the network. For obvious reasons, criminal organizations and militant networks strive to keep their membership secret, and it is not always apparent who gives the orders and who carries out the orders in a political body. To discern who’s who in a group, and therefore whether an individual matters in a group, requires both intelligence and analysis to make sense of the intelligence.”

Stratfor

Admittedly, the network outlined herein is a rudimentary one and requires more fleshing out. But for all his “anti-Globalist, Amerika First” rhetoric, Donald Trump finds himself at the center of two key Globalist enterprises: The Deep State drug trade and the Technofeudal State’s transhuman gambit. While The Donald has done a masterful job in dressing himself up as antithetical to these interests, an Administration is not just a President – it’s the support network of the seemingly immortal Deep State actors that supports them.

And Donald Trump is most certainly from the network. But is he for the network?

In this author’s mind, Donald’s Deep State connections belie three potential scenarios:

  1. Donald Trump is analogous to the John F./Joe Kennedy complex before him. He may be supported by a criminal enterprise and surrounded by unsavory characters, the Deep State may have leverage over him, but he ultimately has a “Good Heart” and seeks genuine change despite the uphill battle.
  2. Donald Trump is a Deep State actor from a competing group of insiders, putting pressure on the “Old Order” crowd of the Bush/Clinton Cartel in making way for the “New Multipolar World Order” now emerging.
  3. Donald Trump is a Deep State actor running solely for the aims of the Deep State itself. He is a part of it, complicit in it, and whether he wins or loses is immaterial to the greater objectives of World Order.

I’m a cynical sod with this crazy belief that only individuals working in concert with other individuals of their own free will can ever change Humanity’s current predicament, and thus, lean heavily towards Options #2 and #3. But for those starry-eyed dreamers who place their faith in the God of the State, here’s to hoping that your next King of choice does not become a sacrificial one.

The “Eastern Saviours” Meme, Veterans Today, and Sniffing Out Alt-Media Disinformation

I recently had a comment exchange on the site with a user named Jerry, who brought to my attention some information that Veterans Today had put out in conjunction with “psychic” Ben Fulford (still holding my breath on that Ninja Army by the way, Ben). The implication of the video built upon the “BRICS Saviour” meme, going so far as to imply that the buildout of Agenda 21 infrastructure in the East was a positive development for Free Humanity. 

Jerry’s comment in full: 

I spend so much time on the Alt Media because it seems to be the best compared to so much of anything else. I have also experienced GOD (not God nor gods), so INtuition is my filter.

I have recently come across two sources of info, that seem related, concerning the “cause” of so many things on this planet.

I will see if I can find them and paste them here, I intend to spread them (links) around, but one came from Veterans Today, which I think that you bad-mouthed, so maybe you can tell me what you think of the link, and how it relates to your own view of their info (it seems they promote Fulford and his White Dragon folks) … the “second” subject, that to me is most important, because it so reminds me of The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion (which fake or not DO SHOW the intentions and methods used resulting in what we have today) …

https://plus.google.com/106206657604068245588/posts/11ZDGXeqABJ

I realize this thread is rather out of date, but maybe you will find it and answer, Thanks, j.

As traffic here at Stateless Homesteading is increasing month to month, I sometimes forget that I’ve picked up thousands of new readers who are surprised to learn that my work refutes the “White Dragon Society”/”BRICS World Order” narrative propagated in so much of alt-finance media. I post my response to Jerry here in full in the hopes that other readers may gain some perspective on exactly where I’m coming from when I say the rise of the East is an integral aspect of the “New Multipolar World Order” being erected around us at an ever-increasing pace, not an opposing force to Globalism.

My Response

Appreciate the comment, Jerry, and I’m glad you find this site at least somewhat valuable – always nice to talk with someone whose spiritual conceptions are similar to your own!

As for VT and the Gordon Duff “disinfo mill,” I don’t mean to give the impression of “bad mouthing” or attempting to discredit VT, if only because they do a fine job of that all by themselves:

“I don’t know know any imaginable way you can get information…First of all…Because, about 30%, based on what I believe…and you know what? Who says I’m right? According to my belief, and I have as good of, uh access to information as anyone in the world, probably, anyone I know of. About 30% of what’s written on Veterans Today, is patently false. About 40% of what I write, is at least purposely, partially false, because if I didn’t write false information I wouldn’t be alive. I simply have to do that. I write…anything I write I write between the lines.”

-Gordon Duff, VT
https://archive.org/details/GordonDuff.FalseInformationControversy

By Duff’s own admission, 70% of what he writes is a lie, and the other 30% is merely his personal opinion. The latter half I take little issue with – everyone has their own way of seeing things, myself included, though I try my best to leave my own color commentary until the end of my articles and let the primary sources speak for themselves.

…which leads me to my main point of discontent with Duff, Wantana, Fulford, et. al., which is that they have ZERO primary sources which I (or anyone else) can objectively analyze. It’s always “super secret insiders” or “channeled alien psychic woo-woo” or “magical White Dragons taking down the Khazarian mafia.” Never evidence. If Stateless Homesteading is founded on the ethos of “Open Source” research, then VT is its foil: Closed Source.

For example, the group that VT regularly refers to as the aforementioned “Khazarian Mafia” have members who are widely known to us (Kissinger, Rockefeller, Rothschild, Brzezinski, etc.) Yet their supposed “mortal enemies” in the White Dragon society (or Red Dragon society, or just Dragons… they change the name so often it’s hard to keep up) have not a SINGLE public figure whose name we’re allowed to know?

A few years ago, I casually entertained the notion of “super secret Eastern insiders” who were going to “take down the evil Western bankers.” Gold flows from West to East seemed to suggest this might be the case, so I went looking for evidence and primary sources to back up the contention. Many metals analysts (like Jim “The Golden Jackass” Willie, another talking head who offers no primary sources to back up his claims) had long held that the “White Dragons” controlled the PBOC; but when I looked, all I found was people like Zhou Xiaochuan, a Bank for International Settlements member who’s all aboard the IMF’s SDR basket nonsense:

http://www.bis.org/review/r090402c.pdf

Others, still, said the “White Dragons” were the founders of the New Development Bank(s), but here, too, a little digging only yielded evidence of Western puppets like Jin Liqun, former Vice President of the Asian Development Bank (a vassal of the World Bank and America’s Neomercantile playing piece in the South China Sea) and now President of the AIIB. Who, by the way, has been hard at work signing “Sustainable Development” pacts (Agenda 21) with the World Bank:

http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/business/2015-07/17/content_21308703.htm

The video you posted, in part, was actually the genesis of my first article on this site; when Fulford and his merry band of “psychics” started propagating the notion that Agenda 21 and the Transhuman borg beehive society was A GOOD THING, my “INtuition” (as you so aptly put it) said otherwise. And so did the primary sources:

http://statelesshomesteading.com/china-21-anglo-american-sustainability-in-asia/

Since then, I’ve uncovered ample evidence (from both “Western” and “Eastern” sources) that suggests supranational coordination towards building a “New World Order” (for lack of a better term) and little to no evidence of “White Dragons” coming to save us all from ourselves. Re-stating my entire thesis here would make this comment even more long in the tooth than it already is, but I’d suggest this article as a starting point for where I’m coming from:

http://statelesshomesteading.com/dr-bricslove-or-how-alt-media-learned-to-stop-worrying-and-love-the-nwo/

If there’s anything I despise, it’s being lied to. I think that’s true of everyone in “conspiracy” culture, as being lied to by TPTB is why we’re all here in the first place. So when there’s people claiming to be movers and shakers in the “Truth” community who knowingly lie to their audience, I don’t think these people deserve our time or attention. Lying to your readers as an author is tantamount to lying to yourself – the worst kind of lie, the kind that makes you an untrustworthy person.

Duff’s assertion that he doesn’t know “any imaginable way you can get information” is patently silly – this site is LOADED with information in the form of primary documentation and verifiable source material, painstakingly assembled for readers to dig further into should they so choose. I would posit that Duff makes this ridiculous claim to dissuade people from looking at actual evidence, as if one takes a peek under those proverbial covers, they’ll quickly find VT caught with its pants down.

Thanks again for taking the time to comment, Jerry, and I hope our difference of opinion on this matter won’t put you off to my future writings; I sincerely hope this is the first comment exchange of many!

Kind Regards,
Rusticus

GUEST POST: De-Dollarization is Now Assured – SDR Bond Issued by World Bank in China

Rory Hall of The Daily Coin hits it out of the park with this one – a very important story with prescient commentary, and yet more evidence of the Hegelian “East-West Changeover” so often discussed here at Stateless Homesteading. The “writing on the wall” for SDR-denominated bonds in China has been visible since at least April of this year, when the PBOC began releasing data on currency reserves denominated in SDRs (which we covered here). 

First the Yuan’s rapid integration with the IMF’s SDR basket (as predicted by this author in Summer of 2015), then the AIIB’s joint World Bank development pact, now SDR-denominated Chinese bonds issued by none other than the World Bank. Is this an Eastern effort to launch a “Trojan Horse of Reform” into the heart of the Western financial system, or are these merely China’s outward attempts to fully integrate themselves as a multilateral “partner” in the Globalist borg? Can a meat grinder be “reformed” into a cow?

Only with the retrospection of history will we know the outcome, though this author’s personal take on the matter is likely known to you by now. Thanks as always for reading and check back for more updates soon!

Rusticus

Original Author: The Daily Coin

This just hit the wire and confirms what we have been discussing for the past couple of weeks. The World Bank (International Bank for Reconstruction and Development, IBRD) has approved the People’s Bank of China to issue the SDR Bond. This is a major first step in delivering a realistic blow to the dominance of the U.S. dollar as world reserve currency. It is no secret that China has been making international moves to make the Renminbi (RMB) a more attractive currency on the global stage. This latest move solidifies the RMB as a world currency.

There has not yet been set a launch date for the first issuance of this new SDR Bond, however, in previous communiques there has been discussion to launch as soon as the end of August.

A lot of you are probably thinking “big deal, who cares”. Well, once this bond reaches it’s 3rd, 4th issuance and the demand begins to grow the impact this will have on U.S. Treasuries could be significant. The United States is the largest debtor nation in the history of the world and the U.S. Treasuries are the financial instrument that creates and maintains that debt. Once all these U.S. Treasuries begin flowing back into the U.S. economy that has the potential to create a lot more inflation that we are currently experiencing. That is merely one aspect of the overall. So, yes, it’s a big deal.

One of the main characteristics of this new SDR Bond is it will be issued in SDRs and redeemable in Renminbi (Yuan). The significants of this can not be overstated. This means that an investor in America who purchases the new SDR Bond will now have exposure to the RMB and hold fewer dollars in their portfolio. These investors can then use those SDR Bonds as collateral to make other purchases. The renminbi will now be on a level playing field as the other currencies that make up the SDR Basket of currencies. Currently the SDR Basket of currencies is made up of US dollars, Euro, Japanese Yen, British Pound Stirling and as of October 1, 2016 the Chinese Renminbi.

This is a big deal and has the potential to forever change the U.S. dollar and the bond market. Nay-sayers will be quick to point out these bonds were tried in the past. While that is true, the economic times were not as they are today.

As Eric Dubin, The News Doctors, described the beginning phases of this new bond “will be like flicking grains of rice into the bond market“. While I wholeheartedly agree with this sentiment, over the coming months and years the impact will be very real. As the AIIB, BRICS Bank, New Development Bank, PBOC and other banks around the world begin, in earnest, to convert their bond holdings to the SDR Bond the market will begin evolving and once it reaches critical mass the hordes will rush in, just as they always have in the past.

According to the World Bank:

The size of the World Bank’s new issuance program is 2 billion SDRs (approximately equivalent to USD 2.8 billion). The bonds will be denominated in SDRs and payable in Chinese renminbi (RMB). The precise timing of issue and individual bond terms will be based on market conditions at the time of issuance.

During the 1970’s we did not have Quantitative Easing, Zero Interest Rate Policy nor Negative Interest Rate Policies. We also did not have derivatives, nor “too big to fail” banks. So, yes the SDR bonds first appearance was a failure, however, everything has changed and the world looks and acts a lot different than back then.

World Bank explains further:

“This is a landmark development for China’s bond market and for the SDR as an international reserve asset,” said World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim. “We are very pleased to support China’s growing role in global financial markets. World Bank issuance of SDR bonds in China will support the G-20’s objective of expanding the use of SDRs and help promote the development of China’s domestic capital market. It will also increase Chinese investors’ access to foreign currencies in the domestic bond market, while opening up new opportunities for international investors seeking high-quality investment products in the country.”

Since I am a betting man my money is on these bonds being supercharged right out of the gate. My bet is there are nations around the world looking for an alternative to the U.S. Treasury and world reserve currency system. Change has arrived. The dollars days are numbered. How long it will take for the dollar to transform is yet unknown, however, what is known is this – China is on the rise, China has the wealth, the gold and support of the banking cabal around the world. What China also has is more than $1 TRILLION in U.S. Treasuries that she will begin converting to SDR Bonds over the next several months and years. Count on it.

CIA Breaks its Silence on “New Silk Road”: Says Challenging the BRICS and AIIB was a “Mistake”

For the geopolitically alert audience, there’s little worthwhile on television these days (assuming there ever was); but for those willing to wade through the Matrix Box’s flashing imagery of disinformation, entrainment technology, and trash TV, a select few programs contain the occasional glimmer of Deep Political lucidity from a typically tight-lipped “ruling class.”

One such show is MSNBC’s Morning Joe, due in no small part to co-host Mika Brzezinski’s segment that I’ve come to lovingly refer to as Conversations with Daddy ZbignewAnother long-running example, the “prestigious” PBS program hosted by Bilderberger and Trilateral Commission member Charlie Rose, provides unparalleled access in this regard – that is, when he’s not busy passing off celebrity interviews as “cultured” and “sophisticated” or even “newsworthy.”

But when Charlie’s immense access (from Rockefellers to Rothschilds) is put to the test, there is no better glimpse for the public into the world of geopolitik and its “Grand Chessboard.” At least, not on TV! One such conversation took place earlier this week and has already gotten its fair share of coverage in the blogosphere – an interview with former deputy director of the CIA, Mike Morell:

Morell has ostensibly “left” the agency after 33 years of so-called “service” for the express intent of publicly endorsing Hillary Clinton for President, which he did by publishing a gushing ovation in The New York Times. Among his laundry list of reasons for endorsement, Morell emphatically declares that a Clinton regime would be more willing to “kill Russians” and “kill Iranians,” would be more apt to escalate war in Syria, and would doubtlessly be more likely to (as Charlie Rose puts it) “arm the Mujahidden.”

Which of course, has never been done before in history to catastrophic ends. Ever.

Morell also suggests over the course of the interview (as well as his Times op-ed) that Donald Trump is an unwitting Russian agent – a claim that many will find ridiculous yet, nevertheless, has been somewhat substantiated by none other than veteran 9/11 sleuth and drug trade researcher, Dan Hopsicker.

And all this within the first half of the interview! We owe it all to the intimate setting of the round (oak) table, truly.

The latter portion of this illuminating dialogue, unfortunately, received far less play; it was at this point that the conversation shifted from domestic politics and Middle Eastern wars of imperialism towards the rise of China. Speaking “strictly for himself,” the former DD/CIA offered his opinions on potential conflict with China – and perhaps more importantly, the shared interests of a rising China and the Anglo-American Establishment in a multilateral World Order.

But hey, you know what they say about quitting the Agency: You never really do.

The most important bilateral relationship for the future of Eastasia, for the future of the world, is the relationship between Washington and Beijing. That’s a strong statement, but I believe it to be true.

Mike Morell on Charlie Rose

This author has long documented the merging (and in part, managed destruction) of the “old unipolar Order of the West” in favor of the “new multipolar Order of the East;” a thesis not built upon some personal stroke of brilliance or super-secret “insider” information, but rather the ruminations of Globalist organizations themselves on these matters, which are openly released to the public in the form of policy papers. The list of institutions proclaiming a desire for an Eastern-led economic and geopolitical “multipolar New World Order” is staggering, and the names on that list should not be strangers to even the casual Deep Political researcher:

The CIA, too, now count themselves among these ranks, after distinctly missing the “multipolar” memo last year when the Obama administration vocally opposed the UK’s early entry into the AIIB. Not to be caught playing second-fiddle in the “Special Relationship,” Morell took the opportunity on his tell-a-vision appearance to bring his (and by some measure of extension, the Agency’s) views in line with those expressed by Chatham House in its latest policy paper on “international economic governance” when he said:

We will give China more room to exercise influence if they play by the rules of the International Order. What does that mean? It means that, for example, I think it was a mistake for the United States of America to push back when China wanted to create a regional development bank. The Brits broke rank with us immediately. So you don’t push back on stuff like that where they’re actually trying to play by the rules.

-Mike Morell on Charlie Rose

So according to the Deputy Director of the CIA itself, the Eastern development bank(s) are not a threat to the “International Order.” On the contrary, they are China’s outward attempt to “play by the rules,” as Mr. Morell puts it, and are rapidly integrating themselves into veteran institutions of the “rules based international order” like the IMF and World Bank.

Comparing Morell’s above statement with the policy prescriptions of Chatham House, one can clearly see a concerted effort that spans multiple institutions towards paving the way for an Eastern-centric World Order:

Bear in mind that the most widely publicized infrastructure project of the BRICS and AIIB is the New Silk Road (or “One Belt, One Road” project as it’s called in China) – a planned trade and travel land route spanning vast swaths of the Eurasian rimland. There’s a specific reason Western intelligence agencies would be keen on giving their blessing to such a “New Silk Road,” but we’ll come to that soon enough.

It wasn’t long ago that the Charlie Rose program broadcast an interview with another consummate insider, Henry Kissinger, discussing the place of China in a “New World Order” (Mr. Kissinger’s words). Elaborating on this point later, Kissinger lamented that while China valued the “superiority and uniqueness” of their culture, he thought it “hard to imagine Chinese armies invading somewhere to make Chinese culture, Chinese governing principles. That is not a Chinese way of thinking.”

“It’s hard for me to imagine a Chinese military strategy backed up by a Chinese world government, even in the name of universal peace,” he noted in a lecture to the Center for Strategic International Studies.

In Mike Morell’s recent Charlie Rose appearance, though, the former CIA agent seems to refute Kissinger’s notion of China’s cultural and historic lack of overt imperialism; as Morell states in no uncertain terms, the use of military force to protect overlapping “national security interests” is actively being marketed to the Chinese government, and not without success:

Morell: I base this on my own conversations with Chinese officials, my counterparts in China. I believe that there are a growing number of places in the world where our national security interests overlap than where they are in conflict. I believe there’s potential for us to cooperate and work together.

Rose: Do the Chinese believe that and do they want to do that?

Morell: Yes. Yes, I think they believe it and they’re increasingly coming to understand that it is in their best interest.

On these two fronts, the economic expansion of the twin Asian development banks as well as joint “national security” (read: Empire-building) interests, American Intelligence sees room for cooperation. Morell was, however, quick to clarify: Chinese expansion into the South China Sea is not a “shared national security interest,” but a point of tension, particularly as the Anglo-American Establishment has set forth in its “Island Chain” policy of Chinese containment (for more on this topic, listen to this Council on Foreign Relations podcast).

While China’s blue-water expansion is disallowed in the eyes of Morell and the CIA, there is far more room for overlapping “national security interests” on land – particularly on such a lengthy route as the one proposed by the New Silk Road. And perhaps not coincidentally, the “One Belt, One Road” project just so happens to be situated along a region long considered the lynchpin for global dominance: The Eurasian Heartland.

Who rules East Europe commands the Heartland;
Who rules the Heartland commands the World-Island;
Who rules the World-Island commands the World.

-Sir John Mackinder, Democratic Ideals and Reality

While the term “Heartland” was coined by John Mackinder during the original “Great Game” between Czarist Russia and the British Empire during the 19th Century, it is generally understood today to describe Eastern Europe, Russia, and the Central-Asian Caucus states. The British Empire of antiquity postulated that direct control and invasion of the Heartland was the key to victory; modern schemers for the cause of World Federalism like Zbignew Brzezinski, however, hold that the encirclement of the Heartland is the true path to world domination.

Brzezinski refined Mackinder’s original “Heartland” idea in his 1997 book, The Grand Chessboard, referring to the region as the Eurasian Balkans:

The Eurasian Balkans, astride the inevitably emerging transportation network meant to link more directly Eurasia’s richest and most industrious western and eastern extremities, are also geopolitically significant.

Moreover, they are of importance from the standpoint of security and historical ambitions to at least three of their most immediate and more powerful neighbors, namely, Russia, Turkey, and Iran, with China also signaling an increasing political interest in the region.

But the Eurasian Balkans are infinitely more important as a potential economic prize: an enormous concentration of natural gas and oil reserves is located in the region, in addition to important minerals, including gold.

-Zbignew Brzezinski, The Grand Chessboard

With nearly twenty years of retrospection, it’s clear to see that the “inevitably emerging transportation network” designed to link the “most industrious western and eastern extremities” has indeed begun development in the form of the “New Silk Road.”

And where, exactly, is this “One Belt, One Road” to occupy? The Eurasian Balkans.

This is a map of the Eurasian Heartland as originally conceived by John Mackinder:

…and here is a map of the proposed New Silk Road land route:

Quite literally “Heartland Encirclement by another means” as the (not so) Great Game continues unabated. While it’s yet to be seen whether or not Chinese expansion into the Central-Asian Caucasus will coincide with Anglo-American aspirations of global governance, Mike Morell and his “Chinese counterparts” in intelligence are right about one thing: The New Silk Road is ripe for shared “national security interests” between West and East.

Isolation of Russia. Vast gold reserves. Key natural gas and oil transit lines. “Sustainable Development” (Agenda 21) infrastructure.  The resurgence of Golden Triangle opium.

Can the “old World Order” ruling caste sell the “new kids on the trading block” on shared interests in one or more of these areas? Can a long-dead imperial fervor within Southeast Asia’s majority Han population be revived, as it was in the Han Dynasty of olde, for the aim of expanding Globalism?

We seem to be well along the path of this “One Road,” Reader – yet thanks in part to the prognostications of CIA officials, one cannot say we were not warned!
