My Appearance on the Smaulgld Subscriber Sound-Off Series

Hey, all! Another brief update for you. I’m a subscriber to a top-notch YouTube channel called Smaulgld. It’s hosted by Louis Cammarosano, a contrarian alternative media producer whose analysis of the precious metals market is unparalleled. Louis has recently launched a series called “Subscribers Sound Off,” designed to give followers of his YouTube channel a platform to discuss important issues, and he was kind enough to have me on:

…or if you prefer the decentralized video platform BitChute:

https://www.bitchute.com/video/M0gNwEpmEYr6/

Louis and I discuss my longstanding thesis that the BRICS/AIIB/SCO/China-led complex is joined at the hip with Anglo-American entities typically defined as “Globalists” by alt-media. We also discuss the cognitive dissonance, confirmation biases, and generally unfriendly stance of alt-media commentators when broaching topics that go against the proverbial grain of traditional off-mainstream narratives. Wrapping up, we talk cryptocurrencies and the potential that those who shun their use are painting themselves into a corner by eschewing their influence in a new monetary paradigm.

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) …

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

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 One Belt, One Eurasian Encirclement Project

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:

heartland

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

newsilkroad

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!

 

 

Yet Another Perspective on the Coup in Turkey: The Drugs Connection

After publishing my initial article on the Turkish “coup” within the context of the drug trade, none other than esteemed researcher Dr. Joseph P. Farrell of Giza Death Star reblogged the entry as well as added his unique perspective (or “high octane speculation,” as he calls it).

Dr. Farrell’s take on international intelligencia from all major nation-states (Russia included) forming a “Sullivan and Cromwell” of sorts for drugs is precisely what I was alluding to when mentioning the “globalization of the drug trade” in my thesis. His elaboration on this notion goes beyond what there was room for in my own article, so I re-present his work here in hopes that inquiring Readers will investigate further. 

Stay tuned! -Rusticus

By Dr. Joseph P. Farrell

In the aftermath of the “coup” in Turkey, there has been so much speculation on who was behind it, and why, that adding yet more grist to the mill may seem counterproductive. After all, too much grist and the mill simply ceases to function. But a regular reader here, Ms. S.H. found this important article, and it’s significant enough that I thought it deserved to be passed along:

As you’ll note, the essence of the article is that the drug trade in opium flows from Afghanistan through Incirlik airbase – which, notably, the Sultan has turned on the power again and allowed NATO bombing missions to continue- and from Incirlik on to the markets in North America and, presumably, Europe.

There’s some nuggets in this article, however, that contain their own clues for some high octane speculation, from the “globalization” of the drug trade:

But quality heroin has done a bit of “Globalization” in its own right, as such “good dope” is no longer the purview of Eastern regions exclusively. Shortly after Colombia and neighboring nations stepped up production of high-grade white heroin, Mexican Cartels (spearheaded by the Sinaloas) abandoned their position as lowly black-tar producers and middle-men, turning Guerrero’s staple cash crop from avocados to poppy in just a few short years:

…to the formation of “Drug trusts” (somewhat misnamed “Cartels”) controlling the entire process from production to distribution, and even allegations that “GMO opium” has also entered the stream of the drug trade:

Some have even speculated that this global heroin explosion and corresponding quality increase is due, in no small part, to the emergence of Genetically Modified poppy plants. While hard evidence of this claim remains elusive, in a world where even GM yeast has proven effective in producing opiods, the thought can hardly be dismissed outright.

All this leads to the following thesis:

This investigation started with questions about the future of the NATO-backed drug terminal run out of Incirlik Air Base amidst ongoing political instability in Turkey; and while this author has succeeded in documenting CIA’s longstanding “alternative” to Incirlik being rapidly built up in West Africa as well as the fever-pitch of development to turn Southern Mexico into the next Northern Afghanistan, I must confess that I do not know exactly what this spells for the future of Turkish regime change.

I can, however, posit a hypothesis: As international gold reserves between West and East are being globalized, world currency holdings between nations via the SDR are being globalized, and the “new energy paradigm” of Agenda 21 is being globalized, is it inconceivable to think that the global drug trade, too, is being “equitably internationalized?”

Unfortunately, I don’t have the answer to this question – but I bet a fly on the wall at last week’s meeting between John Kerry and Vladimir Putin could shed some light on the situation.

So let’s do a bit of high octane speculation. Most readers here are aware that Sultan Erdogan was involved in corruption of his own, soaking up money from ISIS’s oil trade and shipments via Turkey, until Mr. Putin put an end to that. Let us also recall that recent revelations indicate that Erdogan’s government was warned by Russia of an impending coup. Most of the speculation out there has centered upon the idea that with the apparent extent of the coup, it would have been impossible for at least someone’s intelligence services picking up on it. But the entrance of the drug trade into the picture alters this consideration, and not inconsiderably.  I take it as a given that the drug trade is not a CIA-only affair, but rather, that it is the principal means for most intelligence agencies to have access to funds free from the oversight of their respective governments, and that thus, the international “mafia” forms a kind of network of its own, a kind of “power of attorney” for all these intelligence agencies, a kind of “Sullivan and Cromwell” of the underworld, a firm that will broker for anyone for a “cut of the action”. At this deep level, the CIA, FSI, MI6, Mossad, GRU, and so on, are all interconnected. It is an underground information flow. The article itself mentions the late Gary Webb’s research into illicit drug operations of the American intelligence community in this regard. But we might equally mention Stephen Handelman’s Comrade Criminal: Russia’s New Mafiya and its overtones of Russian-KGB and GRU involvement in these drug(and teror) networks for some time. So, could this coup, which followed so quickly upon Mr. Erdogan’s sudden about-face in the Middle East, have provided Mr. Erdogan a golden opportunity not only to break with his Suni-Wahhabist allies of yesterday to pursue Turkey’s own Sufist version of Islamicization, but also have afforded him the opportunity to cash in on a relationship with Russia and China and their “silk road” project, including a hefty piece of the action for the drug trade?

And let’s not hold back in our high octane speculations: could drugs and the domination of Central Asia poppy fields and distribution routes, be what this is all about?

I don’t know about you, but I have a strong suspicion that this is the case.

See you on the flip side…

Dr. BRICSLove or: How Alt-Media Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the NWO

Since its inception, a common theme running throughout the entries here at Stateless Homesteading has been the notion that the “East vs. West” dialectic presented in both mainstream and off-mainstream media is not an organically-manifested conflict, nor does it represent the end of Globalization, but is instead a managerial shift from from a “unipolar” World Order to a “multipolar” New World Order.

Yet despite my best efforts in demonstrating, with primary sources and documented evidence, the “ties that bind” East and West in globalized efforts as varied as Agenda 21 or the gradual emergence of the SDR’s multi-currency basket as the preferred “One World Currency” of both China and the Anglo-American Establishment, the onslaught of propaganda proclaiming that the BRICS/AIIB construct is to spell “death to the Western banking empire” continues to grow.

Seemingly immune to the inaccuracy of the unsourced “predictions” being churned out by the “BRICS World Order” rumor mill, fantastic fairy-tales of White Hats and White Dragons fly unabated, despite the breakdown of the BRICS Saviour meme at its core. While these pundits prognosticate about the end of Agenda 21 in the East, official statements from both Jin Liqun (former Vice President of the Asian Development Bank, now AIIB President) and Xi Jinping completely contradict this narrative. So, too, do the notions espoused surrounding the Yuan/RMB attaining world reserve currency status stand in stark contrast to the macroeconomic reality we now face: A China whose currency has been accepted into the SDR basket (as predicted by myself and others). A PBOC that has begun issuing Chinese reserves denominated in SDRs. Anglo-American think tanks proposing not a gold-backed RMB as so many have foreseen, but a “pseudo” gold-backed SDR, and a Chinese Central Bank head all too willing to comply.

The real tragedy of this disconnect between fiction and reality, however, is not merely the perturbing dismissal of primary sources, but that in the abandonment of uncomfortable Truths for reassuring fiction, those alt-media aficionados who believe the Chinese-led Eastern coalition to be in opposition to Globalism find themselves in unwitting support of the next phase of the New World Order, euphemistically marketed as “multipolarism.”

While the above may seem a contradictory statement to those still mired in the “BRICS World Order” PR pumpage, the afterbirth of the Rhodes Roundtable known as Chatham House has done us all a great favor in the publication of its November 2015 policy paper, “International Economic Governance: Last Chance for the G20?

International Economic Governance: Last Chance for the G20?

Not that the “Royal” Institute for International Affairs has undergone some profound outpouring of empathy for human freedom and autonomy – though I doubt you were expecting that, Reader. They have, however, demonstrated succinctly that the rhetoric surrounding the rise of the East in Globalist circles is virtually identical to the “Asian exceptionalism” being propagated throughout alternative media today.

Save for one key distinction, of course: The Chatham House version of events in no way implies some cartoonish overnight disappearance of the structures of national and global governance, but instead, an assimilation of regional powerbrokers into a Globalized financial order. Not only does this article series seek to demonstrate that a “World Federalism” of distributed power blocs like the BRICS and AIIB is the “transformation” of Globalism being sought in the 21st Century, but to show, within the context of history, that this has been a linchpin in the gambit for global governance for at least half a century.

Goodbye Pax Americana, Hello New Multipolar World Order

A central element of the “BRICS Saviour” meme, in addition to the geopolitical and financial rise of Asia, is a corresponding end to American (and thus Dollar) hegemony. The funeral pyre of “The West” will inevitably serve as fertilizer for the Phoenix of Eastern multipolar institutions like the BRICS and AIIB, and here, many an alternative media blogger and Chatham House are in complete agreement:

Screenshot from 2016-05-16 12-33-22

In keeping with the G20-centric title of the paper, Chatham House decries not only the unipolar U.S.-led global coalition, but its chief “old World Order” working group, the G7; as an organization set up in 1973 and designed expressly to support the mechanics of floating currencies inherent with the petrodollar, the G7, like the unipolar American Empire it represents, must make way for the “new working group on the block.” And what better working group to lead the charge in a “multipolar world of more dispersed economic power” than the “inclusive” G20, of which China takes the reigns later this year?

G20 Logo

The logo for the 2016 G20 meeting in Hangzhou, China – complete with all-seeing eye symbolism. Cue Alan Parsons Project.

Doubtlessly, Chatham House has high hopes for President Xi’s coming G20 stewardship, with such grandiose aspirations as “improving global governance” and “implementing the UN’s 2030 development agenda” already pledged by the would-be Chairman:

From Chatham House publication "Towards a More Effective G20 in 2016," published in March of this year

From Chatham House publication “Towards a More Effective G20 in 2016,” released in March of this year

Yet despite Chatham House’s full acknowledgement and support of the new multipolar world now emerging, a critical element in furthering this agenda has yet to come into play: The IMF’s Christine Lagarde refers to it as the “Great Reset.” Many alt-media soothsayers use the same terminology, appending any number of personal delusions (from the end of Globalism to the playing out of Biblical Prophecy) to this pending event. It is known to the RIIA simply as a “Bretton Woods moment:”

Screenshot from 2016-05-16 12-36-36

Like the public relations onslaught from various “BRICS Saviour” authors, Chatham House expresses a certain amount of frustration in the lack of a fundamental restructuring of the global economy post-2008 – the lack of this “Great Reset”. The commonalities in narrative regarding the presence of such a monetary event on the horizon, however, aren’t damning in and of themselves – after all, the “deep changes in the world economy” referenced above are becoming increasingly known to even the layman. What is disconcerting is the synchronous manner in which Chatham House and various segments of alt-media view the world – and in part, how they view the New World:

Screenshot from 2016-05-16 12-37-34

This is where things get particularly interesting; Chatham House overtly decries the “US-dominated world economic order” represented by the IMF, World Bank, and various “Anglo-Saxon” economic institutions as “unfavorable” and an “imposition.” This unipolar old order, being inherently opposed to the new multipolar one being promoted therein, must be restrained in order for the agenda at large to progress – in both the eyes of Chatham House as well as the “Eastern exceptionalists” in our midst:

Screenshot from 2016-05-16 12-39-36

Much to the chagrin of many a BRICS PR agent, Chatham House appends the much-lauded buzz-word of the “New World (Economic) Order” not to the Pax Americana discussed previously, but to emerging markets, specifically China. This New Order, Chatham House proclaims, must no longer allow the United States to project its power through Globalist institutions. “King Dollar,” too, Chatham House deems to be an unnecessary unipolar burden, having outlived its usefulness.

The above passage has profound implications. From the mouth of the Anglo-American Establishment itself, it is emphatically declared that the American Empire is not now and never was the “New World Order,” but a mere stepping stone towards regional federationism, the “true” face of global governance! What’s worse, vast swaths of the “resistance” have somehow come to the fallacious conclusion that the death of American hegemony is the end of Globalism.

Nothing could be further from the truth.

Screenshot from 2016-05-16 12-40-16

Chatham House goes out of its way to establish that the sacrifice of the United States and its influence over international organizations pales in comparison to the survival of “the system” itself. The transformation to a multipolar system, they say, is an inevitability. After over half a century of being used by the Globalists as a blunt instrument of imperialism, usury, and terror, the proverbial pitbull of the old Order must be put down in favor of the multilateral puppy mill headquartered in the East.

For those disparate souls still ensnared by the belief that the “BRICS World Order” will somehow spell the end of Bretton Woods institutions like the IMF and World Bank entirely, this author is here to inform you that this is simply not the trajectory the world is on. As opposed to the machinations of Globalism and its governing structures vanishing with the flick of Eastasia’s magic wand, an altogether different sleight of hand is set to debut on the world stage: The handover of these Globalist institutions to the East.

Screenshot from 2016-05-16 12-42-18The message from Chatham House to America is unabashed: “You are no longer the driver of economic Globalism. Step out of the vehicle (the IMF) and allow Eastasia to finish the cruise towards Technocratic Neofeudalism.” Growing increasingly impatient with even the ghost of “representation” known as Congress, the implementation of increased voting rights at the IMF for the BRICS/AIIB nations and thus, an end to American veto power, can’t happen soon enough in the eyes of the RIIA. In the meantime, though, Europe and America must not wait to act – the World Bank and IMF head must represent this newfound multilateralism, declaring that Lagarde’s potential replacement could (and it is implied should) be Chinese. The installation of Globalist puppets like Zhou Xiaochuan or Jin Liqun to such a position would certainly herald the beginning of this handover in earnest. Chatham House also suggests that America should “show support for the AIIB and other emerging-market initiatives (read: BRICS),” though I suspect the “Good Witch of the East vs. the Wicked Witch of the West” dialectic is far too useful a propaganda initiative in selling the changeover to the global populous to be abandoned just yet.

All of this, of course, is a radically different outcome from the almost Utopian bill of goods sold by alt-media authors publicizing the “Great Reset” as a quick (albeit painful) end to Free Humanity’s woes. Some have already begun to subtly modify their stories to integrate these inconvenient facts, proclaiming that globalism itself is not the genesis of our problems, but that we merely have a “bad King.” Still embroiled in the paradigm of competing nation-states, too many have forgotten Globalism’s true nature as a multinational Superclass with little to no national identity to speak of.

The end of Pax Americana, the regionalization of the globe, a federalized global government under which all these seemingly disparate regions will be bound – these aren’t ideas cobbled together since 2008 in some floundering attempt to retain the current model of Western imperialism, nor are they a tacit acceptance of the “unforeseen” rise of the Second World. This plot has existed, in various forms, since at least the establishment of the post-War institutions the East is set to inherit.

The Multilateral World Order: An Old Plan Comes to Fruition

For the student of forensic history, ruminations about the “multilateral” and “multipolar” era we’re now on the cusp of are not difficult to find – even among some of the most frequently cited works in alt-media. Take, for example, the oft-mentioned 1997 book by Zbignew Brzezinski, The Grand Chessboard. While best known for the establishment of the “Brzezinski Doctrine,” (the encirclement of the Eurasian Heartland as opposed to its direct invasion) The Grand Chessboard includes many references to a multilateral world structured in regionally-administered blocs – specifically citing the economic rise of Asia:

The Grand Chessboard by Zbignew Brzezinski, pg. 153

The Grand Chessboard by Zbignew Brzezinski, pg. 153

In the chapter entitled, “The Far Eastern Anchor,” Brzezinski makes note of Asia as the new engine for world economic activity; and how does he suggest the Anglo-American Establishment best direct this synthetic “Eastern miracle”? Through the establishment of “multilateral structures” prevalent in the West that, as of 20 years ago, did not formally exist in the East. The Asian “working groups” (and the Asian Development Bank that supports them) as they existed at the time were not satisfactory in the eyes of Brzezinski.

In retrospect, however, it’s clear that Brzezinski’s aforementioned “web of multiltaeral and regional cooperative ties,” as confirmed by Chatham House, the United Nations, and the AIIB itself, have begun to emerge in the form of the dual Chinese-led development banks:

Just this past week, a prominent alt-media commentator declared, “That [the rise of the AIIB] is a quantifiable way to show that China is taking a different direction than the Zbignew Brzezinski Grand Chessboard model.” This statement stands in such stark contrast to the actual text of the book in question that I’m forced to question whether people have truly digested and internalized these primary sources or are merely parroting one another’s unrealities.

Brzezinski is hardly alone among the cadre of Globalist “luminaries” promoting this multilateralism, nor is he the first – another protege of the Rockefeller family, the infamous Henry Kissinger, is not to be excluded in tracing this meme’s origins. From 1956 to 1960, Nelson Rockefeller hand-selected a then-youthful Kissinger to head up what was known as the “Special Studies Project.” The Commission was staffed with the task, as stated on pg. 35 of the Project’s literary adaptation, of “helping to shape a New World Order.” Its complete findings, published in 1961 as Prospects for America: The Rockefeller Panel Reports, are nothing short of a guidebook towards the multilateral future we now face.

I recommend this excellent blog post for a more thorough background on Prospects for America, but a select few passages deserve mention here; chiefly those regarding (you guessed it) the development of regional multipolarism in the East:

In discussing the topic of “multinationalism,” a regional bloc structure organized globally is a foregone conclusion to Rockefeller’s Special Studies Project. And how does the Kissinger-led, Rockefeller-commissioned panel suggest these “regional arrangements” should be made?

Not only should regionally federated blocs be organized worldwide, the latter “suggestions” given by the panel are almost universally at play in the East. Joint efforts in “economic development, common markets, and free trade areas” are exactly the purpose served by the BRICS and AIIB in our modern era, especially as these “regional agreements” are being rapidly integrated into the Globalist borg:

The “join accord on monetary and exchange agreements” are also quickly progressing within these new Eastern blocs; Zhou Xiaochuan, a longstanding member of the Bank for International Settlements and head of the People’s Bank of China, has been in support of such a joint accord in the form of the SDR for nearly a decade now. With the acceptance of the RMB into the SDR basket as of last December, we continue to see (as with the AIIB) the integration of regional blocs into globalized structures, exactly as the Project foresaw half a Century ago:

These supranational institutions are readily constructing the mechanisms by which the East will be fully integrated with the Anglo-American Establishment’s longstanding goal of global governance. Beginning in earnest with Nelson Rockefeller, Henry Kissinger, and Richard Nixon’s Neomercantile “opening of China” briefly after Prospects for America‘s initial publication, the timing is hardly coincidental. The trade imbalances globalism has wrought upon the people of Western society, too, are now a matter of the historical record – all as dictated back in 1961:

Conclusions

Despite this author’s dour take on the state of alternative media analysis regarding the BRICS/AIIB construct, not all alternative commentators don rose-colored glasses when gazing Eastward. There are any number of alt-media websites that examine the “East rising” meme within the full context of history.

Among these ranks is Catherine Austin Fitts. A former insider at both Dillon, Reed & Co. and the H.W. Bush Administration, Ms. Fitts is a whistleblower whose credibility is matched by few in our field. Perhaps due to the insider information yielded by her connections in a previous life, Catherine offers the most succinct breakdown of the “multipolar World Order” I’ve yet to come across when she says:

“What’s been happening is when Snowden came out with his revelations and they got publicized, you had a reaction in the BRICS nations to say, ‘These systems have no integrity. We need to build our own systems. Whether they’re internet and digital communications systems, payment systems, or clearance systems – and we need to be able to transact without going through the dollar. We need to build currency swaps and interaction.’

Now I think that ultimately what’s happening is that you started a process in 1995 where the United States tried to build out a global empire leading towards global governance, and the U.S. has stalled in many different fields and for a variety of reasons. They’re pregnant halfway, stuck in the mud, everybody mad at them, and it just wasn’t getting done. And if you look at what Snowden and Putin and the BRICS are up to, I think that’s Mr. Global deciding that the U.S. needs a little competition – that we have a better chance getting to a global currency and global governance through the Hegelian Dialectic of competition between Plan A and Plan B.

Catherine Austin Fitts

And therein lies why the “East vs. West” pseudo-conflict as currently portrayed is so disheartening to watch: One of the oldest tricks in the Globalist playbook, the Hegelian Dialectic, is being actively fomented in order to advance the cause of a “multipolar New World Order”… and a significant portion of alt-media has taken the bait.

It’s easy to see why so many people have relegated themselves to the belief that the post-“Great Reset” world led by the BRICS nations will end all transnational woes – the idea that “everything will be fine due time” is quite alluring bait, indeed. But in accepting the external, supranational synthetic “saviours” offered to us, our attention is drawn away from the internal, localized organic solutions that can thwart the machinations of Globalism at their core, be they Eastern or Western.

My intention in destroying the “Noble Lie” of this dialectic is not to instill hopelessness; far from it, Reader! It’s an attempt to empower – to acknowledge the true potential in the coming “Bretton Woods moment.” Despite the best efforts of the Machiavellian schemers mentioned throughout this article, the “Great Reset” will by no means be a completely orderly transition. While it may be true that we’re already well along the path outlined by the Brzezinskis, Kissingers, and Pickfords of the world, its success still depends upon our compliance.

As is the modus operandi of the ruling class, significant economic hardship is almost certain to be a key factor in coercing humanity’s consent for the multipolar World Order. In true Ordo ab Chao style, any number of top-down solutions will be offered (with weighty concessions) to “make the pain stop.” But what if, in ripping off the Band-Aid of our engineered “world economy,” people found the wound far less debilitating than the media talking-heads proclaimed? What if local trade, agriculture, and energy production were resilient enough on a wide scale to compete with multinational trade deals? What if individuals chose their own currencies and were in a position to reject the SDR-denominated system to be foist upon them?

Doubtlessly, we are still far from this vehemently decentralized vision of the future – and perhaps we always will be. Perhaps Free Humanity is simply not prepared for the hard work of genuine autonomy this time ’round.

But I do know this: We’ll never attain these lofty goals by pretending some external force will do it on our behalf.
