In my last piece some of you expressed cynicism at my suggestion that ‘Openness’ is the New World Order and from which we can only benefit. If I have got it wrong, I will hold my hand up. Certainly I got it wrong with my rather romantic view of the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists’ (ICIJ). It was shoddy research on my part for which I apologise.
Far from the ‘Panama Papers’ being a first for them, it was a repeat of what they carried out (believe it or not, in April of 2013) and have continued ever since. In fact, tax havens exposure seems to be all this organisation does, if their website is anything to go by.
So, an obvious but perhaps misguided choice for a whistle-blower with this sort of information. Sadly, through the ICIJ, these revelations lack the focus achieved when the Guardian published the Edward Snowden leaks. What dominated then was the content of the leaks and an embarrassed US direct assault on Snowden for showing integrity, moral fibre and courage.
This week we have been treated to a plethora of claims, all of which seem designed to divert attention from the odious behaviour of those taking money out of the system and hiding it, at a time when the gap between rich and poor is at its widest historically and with no signs of change.
The claim that it has been done to blackmail many world leaders and people of influence, who do not have the interests of the US at heart, seems credible. There are few, if any US corporations or leaders brought to light and so, either they are particularly incorruptible and a credit to the rest of the world, or there is a dirty tricks campaign going on . . . You decide.
If, as is suggested, this blackmail alludes to the resignation of the Icelandic Prime Minister, after the revelations of his offshore activities, with the inference that this could happen to anyone else who is on the list and fails to support American foreign policy, it is crude beyond belief.
Firstly, we are now told by his party that this Icelandic sleaze ball has not resigned but merely stepped down temporarily. Second, if this is a credible threat, how come it is directed at David Cameron at a time when he is fighting for his very survival, in trying to coerce the British people into voting the way he wants over our membership of the EU?
Here we have a supposed ‘best mate’ of the US fighting to support US policy on Europe and getting a canning by them for his efforts. I’m not the brightest but this really doesn’t make any sense at all to me.
Then we have the assault on Russia and China by the Guardian. Fair enough they are hot targets for the US but the papers’ attempt to smear President Putin, when no one can find any legitimate evidence he is an offshore fund user, is pathetic and not in keeping with the high standards of reporting conducted by the paper over the Snowden revelations.
By contrast, their ‘gang banging’ of China was way over the top, compared to other countries leaders and begs the question whether they are in the pay of the US. However, it must not be forgotten that China banned the Guardian two years ago when it reported on the country’s top officials who were making use of offshore companies in the Caribbean. The paper has bided its time and now appears to be wreaking retribution . . . Nice one!
Then we have the fact that much of the information has been selectively culled to direct attention to the biggest cause for US concern over its current status as the global superpower . . . the BRICs countries of Brazil, Russia, India and China.
There is no doubt they now pose an increasing threat to American dominance, particularly as they will shortly be opening their own bank for business in direct competition to the present Rothschild run system. This is a serious threat to the current world order and given the state of the global financial system it could be very well received.
(Perhaps this is another reason Cameron is included in these revelations, because his mate George has put money with the bank and is currently cosying up to China at the cost of our Steel industry.)
Whilst I am no political strategist, if the other reports, which suggest these revelations and the ICIJ are a tool of the US/Rothschild plan to take over the world and introduce a single world government and currency, I would have assumed you need friends to carry out this herculean task.
The net result of their current endeavours appears to be alienating everyone, making them entirely dependent upon global debt and US military might to carry out the task . . . Hmmmmm.
Whatever is actually going on, I remain with my belief that none of what I have described above would we be aware of if it were not for the New World Order of ‘Openness’. You can’t fight what you cannot see.
The Old World Order is having its veils of stealth and secrecy torn down and they can do nothing to stop it. That alone is providing people with more power than they have ever before had in the history of our species.
Something to ponder over this weekend . . . Have a good one my friends.
Until the next time
