And evidenced here in clean green Enzed peoples. I’ve been capturing photographic record of that since 2011 & have earlier images from as far back as the mid ’90s. Research it. The evidence is all there. Never mind ‘we’re considering spraying the atmosphere’, they’ve been doing it for decades without your knowledge. See our Geoengineering pages. EnvirowatchRangitikei

The NYT article by Jon Gertner describes Harvard professor David Keith’s proposal of a continuous “solar engineering” project to slow down global warming, at a cost of $1 billion a year, by flying ten Gulfstream jets around the world, spraying 25,000 tons of liquid sulphur gas. The gas will condense into airborne particles that scatter sunlight and so reduce global warming. Keith argues such a project is technologically feasible, but is concerned, as he puts it, about “the ethics about messing with nature.”
What neither Keith nor reporter Gertner seems to know (or pretend they don’t know) is that the…
Rocket Lab is an American aerospace corporation launching out of New Zealand SOURCE
Did you know that NZ now has a rocket base? This news seems to have flown under the radar for many. I only noticed it myself a month or so ago. The base is actually situated in Mahia on the East Coast of the North Island, however it was originally planned for the South Island at Kaitorete Spit near Christchurch, also near Birdling Flat and the Radar/Haarp Station there (more on NZ Haarp here and here). The length of time obtaining consents appears to have been the deciding factor about a change in tack. Rocket Lab noted one thing that prevented it from launching close to Christchurch which was the need for a cultural impact assessment from the council. A decision was made to locate the launch pad at Mahia instead. A cultural impact assessment (CIA) is …
Rocket Lab’s financial backers include Silicon Valley venture capitalists, Sir Stephen Tindall’s K1W1 investment fund and Lockheed Martin. It has received up to $25 million of government funding over five years.SOURCE
The company of particular note there is Lockheed Martin:
Lockheed Martin is one of the largest companies in the aerospace, defense, security, and technologies industry. It is the world’s largest defense contractor based on revenue for fiscal year 2014. In 2013, 78% of Lockheed Martin’s revenues came from military sales; it topped the list of US federal government contractors and received nearly 10% of the funds paid out by the Pentagon. In 2009 US government contracts accounted for $38.4 billion (85%), foreign government contracts $5.8 billion (13%), and commercial and other contracts for $900 million (2%). Wikipedia
The launch pad is stated in the following article to be, environmentally friendly, which is heartening indeed given our environment that masquerades as ‘clean and green’ still is in reality pretty much trashed. And regarding partnership with the world’s “largest defense contractor, let’s not kid ourselves, can never be termed ‘friendly’ in any sense of the word, given the carnage we are witnessing daily in terms of civilian deaths, if you happen to read alternative media that is. The US is a nation that has taken defense to its ‘finest’, witness the armchair ‘warriors’ who expunge families with small children from thousands of miles away with drones. Lest you think I am being too harsh on these entrepreneurial people who will no doubt be supplying jobs to local folk (the usual candy cum rationale proffered by corporations) the deciding factor for me is the funding from the said weapons corporation. They won’t be helping fund this because they’re really keen to supply Gisborne locals with employment. We all know this is not the way of corporations. Neither will the Government/corporation be … corporations are about profits not people. If the Government really had a mind to help people they would not make hard working families on minimum wage pay more tax than themselves. Neither would they let corporations off with tax. To see how much they are let off watch Bryan Bruce’s ‘Mind the Gap’ doco on child poverty.
Mainstream media tends to not overly highlight the deaths of little children and their parents in the many global conflicts. It gives war a bad name and they, including our Government/corporation, prefer to re frame and name it as ‘defense’. This is what John Key committed $20 billion of your money to last year (Kiwis) … not war … ‘defense’. They are defending us from Isis and similar terrorist threats that their friends in the US helped to create. And the US’s Madeleine Albright thinks the death of 500,000 Iraqi children was still “worth it”. The British Royals are not averse to trading in weapons either.
Lockheed Martin is the world’s largest weapons manufacturer and supplier to such regimes as Saudi Arabia, a country that today stands accused of using these very weapons to commit war crimes. NZ Herald 14.06.2016
On Tuesday 27 September 2016 a member of the public in Wairoa expressed concerns at the Wairoa District Council meeting:
The person “…..enquired as to when the first rocket will be launched and what assurances Council has that satellites launched won’t be used for spying or military activities…. Rocket Lab has installed the launch platform at the private orbital launch under development on Māhia Peninsula. The installation of the almost 50 ton platform is the final major step in preparing the site for the arrival of the first electron launch vehicle, scheduled to be tested in the coming months. The New Zealand Government has announced the development of a new regulatory regime for space and high altitude activities. It will ensure the development of a peaceful, safe, responsible and secure space industry that meets New Zealand’s international obligations.” SOURCE
Now that should put all of our minds at rest. The NZ Govt “will ensure the development of a peaceful, safe, responsible and secure space industry that meets New Zealand’s international obligations.”
Nothing to see here ….
Anyway, that said, here is an article from 2015 on the launch pad:
Rocket Lab chief commits to protect environment
The company proposing a rocket launch pad on Canterbury’s coast says it is committed to protecting the environment.
Rocket Lab’s proposed site on Kaitorete Spit was officially unveiled this morning in front of Prime Minister John Key and representatives from the Department of Conservation.
“Rocket Lab’s mission is to remove the barriers to commercial space by providing frequent launch opportunities to low Earth orbit. Since its creation in 2006 by Peter Beck, Rocket Lab has delivered a range of complete rocket systems and technologies for fast and affordable payload deployment.”
“THE final frontier could be conquered as early as next June, when Rocket Lab expects to begin launching test rockets into space from its Mahia Peninsula site. For Rocket Lab founder and chief executive Peter Beck, launching his first 16m Electron rocket into space from what will be the world’s first commercial orbital launch site is a life-long dream.”
So we in NZ are now third highest in the developed world for child poverty. We had 41K homeless last time I looked, and 33K empty homes in Auckland belonging to people who don’t even live here. This is the way of Neo-Lib economics. It doesn’t care about children, it doesn’t care about families, it doesn’t care about the vulnerable. NZ has spent $25 million on this pad, the country that is now a haven for the rich who seek to escape the fallout from their oppressive economic activity… and in light of all that, a rocket launch pad is great news. It really reminds me of a recent meme I saw. A politician leans in to a sleeping homeless man and says … “wake up … I’ve got a tax break for you”.
The subject of Kiwisaver has certainly raised a lot of questions lately with regard to the investment of funds by our corporation. Likewise have been the questions around our PM’s ongoing alliance with the US war machine. Check this one out!
Hundreds of thousands of KiwiSaver members in government-appointed default schemes may be unknowingly investing in companies making cluster bombs and anti-personnel mines.
At least five of the nine default KiwiSaver providers invested in these types of companies, despite them being banned by government agencies such as the New Zealand Superannuation Fund and ACC.
The Green Party and Amnesty International say the government must review default providers that have investments in these weapons.
People who sign up to KiwiSaver but do not pick a scheme to enrol in are automatically allocated to one of nine providers hand-picked by the government.
These default providers are ANZ, Westpac, ASB, BNZ, Kiwibank, AMP, Mercer, Grosvenor and Fisher Funds.
More than 500,000 people are enrolled in default schemes, according to figures supplied by Inland Revenue.
An investigation by RNZ has found the default funds run by ANZ, Westpac, ASB, AMP and Grosvenor invested in the anti-personnel mine manufacturer Northrop Grumman and nuclear weapon or base operators Fluor Corp, Honeywell International and Lockheed Martin.
Westpac, ASB, BNZ, Grosvenor and AMP also invested in cluster bomb manufacturers General Dynamics and Textron.
With the upcoming ‘celebrations’ around the 2016 NZ DIA (NZ Defense Industry Association) Forum being held in Auckland on 16 – 17 November in conjunction with the RNZN 75th Anniversary celebrations, Operation Neptune, I took a peek at their website. You can reserve your spot with cocktails and trimmings for just $10,000.
“The NZ DIA was formed in 1993, as an industry development initiative. Its major emphasis today is on networking, and encouraging the membership to work together on developing joint approaches to defence projects in NZ and overseas”
Right there in the DIA’s mission statement is the strategic use of the word ‘defence’. The corporate bankers have need of war, it’s an integral part of the Rothschild banking empire, however, in order to not be too obvious, they need to sanitize it with ‘nicer’ words. Profiteering from war is no conspiracy but documented fact. Cheney’s Halliburton made $39.5 billion on the Iraq war. My elderly father who fought in one of the World Wars and was fortunate enough to return alive, had worked out that fact later in life … that “wars would never end because wars make money”. His oldest brother, a machine gunner, so deeply affected, he wept whenever he talked about war. So, there on the DIA’s website is the standard tribute of poppies to these brave men who served as basically cannon fodder for the war machine, a machine peopled by those who never spent one minute in trenches and never experienced the terror of combat. Remember Mrs Rothschild’s infamous words… “if my sons did not want war there would be none”.
Returning to the planned forum for November this year, Key’s corporation parading as a government (NZ is a US SEC registered corporation) put out a White Paper that was compiled we are told from the public’s and the academic community’s views, involving over 300 written submissions and meetings around the country. (See White Paper info here also).
I don’t particularly recall the road show, perhaps other readers do. Note the Ministry of Defence administers the Defence Act 1990, the era shortly after our nation became corporatized … courtesy of Rogernomics.Corporations are about profits. We are told in the White Paper that “… terrorism remains an enduring global problem”. Those who do their own research will know that the so called war on terror has been effectively drummed up since the very dodgy 9/11 attack that looked extremely like a controlled demolition. And the current threat to security, ISIS, has equally dodgy origins (watch Truth Media: the Origin of ISIS for more info on that).
The war industry is ticking along quite nicely in Aotearoa with banker Key at the helm, and synchronising equally as nicely with his growing partnership with the US. “The Government” [corporation] says Key, “has provided the Defence Force with a degree of funding certainty [$20 billion] that enables it to plan with confidence out to 2030 and beyond.” [Agenda 2030, see also Agenda 21/2030 in NZ] Download the White Paper and see what Key and Brownlee are spending your $20 billion on. Remember how ‘well’ they’ve managed the Christchurch disaster that they refer to in there. It’s an integral part of defence.
What I find particularly distasteful about this whole affair is the spin. One of my favourite investigative journalists John Pilger, describes their convoluted rhetoric so well in his essay, ‘Arming the World’ (in his book “Hidden Agendas” p 115). Describing the weapons (defence) industry he says: “Refined absurdity is always close at hand in the arms business. It squeezes into bed with secrecy, corruption and stupendous greed”. Asking what a British cluster bomb does (gleaming under “soft backlight, like the latest showroom Jaguar”) he is told they need his request in writing for MOD approval as the information is ‘classified’, the reason for which is also ‘classified’. The cluster bomb, Pilger explains “is not really a bomb at all, but an ‘area denial sub-munition’, a land mine in all but name. It is dropped from the air and explodes into forty-seven little mines, which are shaped like spiders.
These are scattered over a wide area and ‘deny’ life to anything that moves or grows.’ They’ve been found says Pilger, in Bosnia and Croatia where between two and four million mines threaten to main and kill long after the war ends. These salesmen he says, have great difficulty saying words like ‘people’, ‘maim’ and ‘kill’. Describing a cluster bomb’s ‘effectiveness’ he cites the little girl who in a Vietnam village lost her family …‘my mother and father were lying there covered in blood, and my sister … had pieces of metal in her, and so did her doll’.
The corporates know it is wrong, trading in weapons (they’re not averse to supplying both sides), this is why they have difficulty with these words. There is enough of old fashioned conscience there for them to need to cover their wording well, however not enough to stop the killing by curtailing their obscene greed. They are therefore very adept at reframing and repackaging. And so the weapons trade becomes the defence trade. The DIA have produced a video for their site to explain with typical corporate expertise, their modus operandi. Watching it you can almost hear the cash registers ringing (except we’re nearly cashless) complete with the bling of coloured lights as the cutting of steel flashes amidst the wording ‘Defence Industry Association’.
Now if you have any doubt still about the money involved here, check out the pages on the upcoming conference. Cocktails and food depending on your budget.
However, if you’re a bit strapped for cash, there’s always the $5,000 slot … minus accompaniments of cocktails and food.
For a list of members of the NZ DIA go here. You will see Fulton Hogan (that company that liberally sprays your streets and public places with carcinogenic glyphosate) along with Lockheed Martin and others. All proudly members of the Defence/Industry partnership.
And to put the proverbial icing on the cake, there are even awards for improvement to defence industry relationships.
The Award will identify the Defence person or persons who have best contributed to building or improving the Defence/Industry relationship.
The aim of the Award is to publicly recognise good performance in this area and provide the opportunity for the NZ DIA and Defence to promote constructive and collegial relationships between Defence and Industry.
Your PM Key continues to tax himself and friends at 2.8%, continues to profit from your country’s indebtedness and the so called global war on terrorism, and is intent on the TPPA agreement which will give both he and his corporate friends even more control. Let’s face it, he is likely not too interested in changing any of the current status quo.
Our attention was recently drawn to the announcement by Prime Minister Key’s American friends (those friends whose bank he has shares in & has us heavily indebted to) of their contemplating a compulsory draft of their women to the war machine. Most of us are aware I’m sure of Key’s allegiance to the stars and stripes, but does his allegiance have any bounds I wonder?
Stepping back a little, I’ve noticed lately a few changes happening in Aotearoa that have been overshadowed somewhat by the current housing crisis. A convenient diversion. With thousands of Kiwis homeless, 33,000 homes purchased by offshore speculators sitting empty in Auckland, and thousands of state homes being flicked off to real estate interests (and whatever happened to the sales to other social housing providers?) the government/corporation is now offering $5000 to beleaguered families to migrate to the provinces! Quite a bit of social engineering going on here by all appearances … and Key says they’re going to fix the problem with his new $1 billion initiative. Some predictable lollipops with election year approaching.
He has also recently announced however, that he is set to spend an incredible $20 billion on our defence force capability. One billion on the housing crisis and twenty times that on the military? Clearly, that is where Prime Minister Key’s priorities lie. Not at home with the homeless, rather, abroad fighting the enemies of the United States of America. That nation that has killed 20 million people in 37 nations since World War II.
As anybody who does their research knows, the well oiled US war machine is a corporate machine. (And the US of course is not the only country that profits from the arms trade. The British Royals are not averse to trading in blood money either). Major General Smedley Butler, a US authority on that topic… having served more than three decades in the military … wrote a book about the insights he gained therein. Wars are essentially bankers’ wars. Corporate wars.
We have all been well conditioned to believe these wars are for ‘King and Country’ … as our beloved forbears were, 70 odd million of whom died in the last World War … or, nowadays, wars against terrorism, the ones that started with the very dodgy 9/11 that looked extremely like a controlled demolition. These wars, as ever, are ostensibly about imposing ‘democracy’ on countries who didn’t request it, while really about siphoning off and profiting from their resources.
And on the note about the war on terrorism, the latest bogey man being ISIS, see who created ISIS.
All Wars are Bankers’ Wars
The war machine is an effective time-tested tool of certain wealthy families … the Rothschilds, the Rockefellers and their ilk. As Mrs Rothschild said …
…and she should know her own sons I’m sure. She sounds obscenely proud of her offspring and their very dubious ‘accomplishments’.
239 Years of Mostly Wars
So, if there’s one thing the US does well … and often, it’s war. See a 239 Year Timeline of America’s Involvement in military conflict, spanning from 1776 to 2011. This country that prides itself on being a peaceful, peace making nation has never in fact gone a decade with out war, to the extent no President can be considered a peace time President. The only time the US has gone for five years without war was during the Great Depression … and we know that financial depressions have always been artificially created, by the very same people who are fomenting the wars. The Bankers.
President Theodore Roosevelt said …
Financial panics are scientifically created (US Congressman Charles Lindbergh, 1920)
The United States of America has been engaged in some kind of war during 218 out of the nation’s total 239 years of existence, not including the war of annihilation, rape and pillage it waged on its indigenous population to acquire their lands and establish itself.
As one US armchair proponent has said quite infamously … “it [war] is worth it” (that being the killing of 500,000 innocent Iraqi children, the real victims of these hideous war games). Wars to warmongers are “worth it” because they make money … lots of it. Make no mistake, this is blood money.Nobody of course highlights this point when rolling out the rationale for increased military spending.
Madeleine Albright believes that killing 500,000 Iraqi children is ‘worth it’.
“In World War I a mere handful garnered the profits of the conflict. At least 21,000 new millionaires and billionaires were made in the United States during that war”…General Smedley Butler
That great nation has indeed taken armchair warfare to a whole new level in the form of drone warfare. In fighting that eternal war on terror, from the comfort of an armchair, one operator can wipe out whole families of suspected terrorists with the push of a button, just like they do in war games online. No nasty trenches required.
“Military men are dumb, stupid animals to be used as pawns for foreign policy.”
Key has Been Quietly Initiating Changes in our National Stance about War
Now, what I’ve noticed looking beyond the housing conundrum and the age-old fomenters of war who are now publicly espousing their New World Order, is that our once clean green, GE and nuclear free paradise (not) has been undergoing some changes in her stance about war … courtesy of John Key.
Late last year NZ hosted a weapons conference in our capital, Wellington, amidst largely ignored protests. Where once we had a nuclear free stance that prevented nuclear warships from visiting our harbours, the Daily Blog reported in April this year that “In November [courtesy of John Key]… an American warship will be entering Auckland Harbour for the first time in 32 years for the 75th anniversary of the NZ Navy.” Clearly there’s no apology about that.
Now Kiwis with their ears to the ground have noticed the change in drills the military have been having in recent years. We have a mingling of the military with the public, carrying arms and playing out scenarios where the public are included. Operation Katipo in 2013 was one of those, with forces from the United States, Australia, Britain, Canada, France, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, Singapore and Tonga.
“The operation cements the complete restoration of New Zealand’s military alliance with the US as part of the Obama administration’s strategic “pivot” or “rebalancing” to the Indo-Pacific to encircle China, which the US views as a threat to its dominance in the region. Smaller exercises were held with the US last year, marking the first time American troops had trained in NZ since a partial rift during the 1980s over Wellington’s anti-nuclear policy.”
“Operation Southern Katipo is further evidence that New Zealand’s ruling elite is dragging the country into Washington’s preparations for war—without any democratic discussion and behind the backs of the population. Despite the exercise’s scale, it has received little coverage in the media.”
In April this year (2016) Herald reported the opening of a new top class SAS training facility in Auckland. Key said the upgrade was needed because:
“… we now live in a world where there is some risk to New Zealand. He said despite that risk being much lower than in other environments, the Government could not rule it out when the likes of Isis are using social media to target people, “even as far away as New Zealand. Mr Key said in the event that New Zealand was subject to a domestic terror threat, the SAS would be used if necessary”.
So, watch this space people. A little scratch below the surface reveals that Key is more intent on war than peace, on currying the favour of his favourite nation and by all appearances on feathering his own already well lined nest, than he is on working for New Zealand as he claimed pre election. Why else does a leader tax his own wealthy friends 2.8% and the average workers 28%?
Those of us who remember our loved ones who either died in war, or who returned, ever to live with the horrific memories of war, we do so from deep respect. We are not glorifying war. These men and women were of a very unique breed. They went in love, desiring to defend their loved ones, us, and their beloved countries. They never wanted war, they were caught up in events against which they had very little, if any, ability to influence. My uncle was so deeply affected by war he would weep when he remembered it. These men on return had no counselors to hear their trauma, they just got on with life and raising families, and buried their grief. They bore a great cost.
War is a Racket – literally
Although every ANZAC we honour these our forbears, we also now know that these loved ones who truly did sacrifice their lives, were pawns in a much larger scheme of events. My father, who went off to WW II with his four brothers at the tender age of 17, said in his latter years that wars would never end because ‘wars make money’. Because our true histories are little known and because the media provides us with a very narrow slanted view, then it’s not widely known that the so-called mother country, Great Britain and the royal family deal in the arms trade. Yes they actually profit from wars. Major General Smedley Butler in his famous lecture: ‘War is a Racket’ clearly outlines whom war serves – the corporations. In the age old rationale of ‘defending democracy’ – the military are really defending the mother country’s rights to plunder resources. Hear his speech here.
It’s little known that some of our own Maori soldiers returned from those World Wars to find their ancestral lands confiscated by the very government they fought for.
Those who read beyond those official histories we all heard in school (who know that ‘Maori Wars’ and ‘Indian Wars’ were actually ‘Land Wars’) will also be aware of the role of the Rothschild family in fomenting and profiteering from wars for hundreds of years, boasting even of funding both sides. These people, incredible as it sounds to real human beings, are dealing in blood. (The following video is the short 12 min version of ‘War is a Racket’, the longer one is found at this link).
The death toll from WWII was over 50 million lives.
“I care not what puppet is placed upon the throne of England to rule the Empire on which the sun never sets. The man who controls Britain’s money supply controls the British Empire, and I control the British money supply”…Nathan Mayer Rothschild
“If my sons did not want wars, there would be none”… Mrs Rothschild
Our loved ones were simply pawns.
Nevertheless, again, we honour the fact that our loved ones went honourably and served their beloved countries and peoples. If you want to get angry at the so called ‘celebration’ of war, please direct this not at our commemorations, but at these other people, the profiteers, who have blood on their hands. Blood that one day, they will have to answer for.
When your children are old enough, teach them the true histories, tell them how it really was and still is. We want wars to stop, but the truth needs to be told about the origins of those wars. You will have to uncover those histories for yourselves because mainstream media is not about to. They guard this dirty little secret well.
For those of us who are awake to the hidden agenda that is going down world wide, this statement from Christine Lagarde of the IMF comes as no surprise really. We already know for instance that the banking fraternity (including the British royal family) profits greatly from wars that have been fomented for centuries by the Rothschilds, who gaily and shamelessly profiteer by funding both sides and boast about it.
Shamelessly too in terms of who they expunge from the planet be they innocent children or whomever. As Madeleine Albright said in her infamous statement ‘it is worth it’ – worth it to kill and maim 500,000 innocent Iraqi kids. And shameless in terms of the military whom they experiment on endlessly, casting them aside when their usefulness has come to an end. As Major General Smedley Butler informed us decades ago … ‘war is a racket’. These are the kinds of people who can make statements like the above about their banking activity, with ne’er the bat of an eyelid, their consciences (if ever they did have one) long hardened to the fact that this is actually not right. This is the nature of corporations – they are soulless – psychopathic entities, totally void of empathy.
We have here the outright admission though (for those who are too blind to have seen all previous pointers to this) that they actually profit from economic recession. That they in fact desirerecession. They desirewars. Now how warped and twisted is that? To want to unleash poverty and death upon one’s fellow human beings? Particularlyupon children. Note, they were not doing so well in 2006 and 7 says Lagarde, that was put right for them, or perhaps by them, with the 2008 recession.
“Financial panics are scientifically created”
Congressman Charles Lindbergh of Minnesota (1920)
It is true what was stated long ago by successive prominent people in government … Willard Cantelon lists many of their statements in ‘The Day the Dollar Dies’ (1973) – a warning to all:
“I’m afraid that the ordinary citizen will not like to be told that the banks can and do create money, and they who control the credit of a nation direct the policy of the government and hold in the hollow of their hands, the destiny of the people”
Reginald McKenna, Chancellor of England’s Exchequer (1924)
“The Governor of the Bank of England must be the autocrat who dictates the terms upon which alone the government can obtain money”
Sir Drummond Fraser, vice-president of the Inst of Bankers (1924)
“The government … in the matters of finance was to leave the money power supreme and unquestioned”
Lord Gladstone, Chancellor of Britain’s Exchequer (1852)
“He who controls the money of a nation controls the nation”
US President James Garfield (1881)
“You see, gentlemen, who owns the United States”
Vice-President John Garner (1933) (referring to international bankers)
“Give me control over a nation’s economy, and I care not who writes its laws”
Meyer Amschel Rothschild
“Money plays the largest part in determining the course of history”
And when these scientifically created panics happen, we know from history that many folk commit suicide. Peoples’ hard earned life savings are pitched straight down the proverbial drain … more accurately … straight into a banker’s pockets. And these vermin continue to escape penalty, with blood on their hands.
When we wrote earlier that based on a leaked Wikileaks transcript, which the Greek government interpreted “as revealing an IMF effort to blackmail Athens with a possible credit event to force it to give in on pension cuts which it has rejected“, the article promptly went viral. While it remains to be determined if the IMF indeed made such an implied threat, we attribute this spike in interest to the general public’s surprise that the IMF could stoop to such a low, even by its own standards, level as to use a nation of 11 million people as a lab rat on which to conduct policy experiments.
She added that “when the world goes well and we’ve had years of growth, as was the case back in 2006 and 2007, the IMF doesn’t do so well both financially and otherwise”
It goes without saying that Lagarde’s sole prerogative as the managing director of the IMF is to make sure it “does well.”
She concluded by saying that “we need to be able to invent and reinvent ourselves in many ways.” One such client-facing “reinvention” just happened to be caught on tape.
Here is the key section:
Knowledge@Wharton: Of all the things that you do here, what are you most passionate about? What would you really like to make sure happens? It could be a small thing, it could be a large thing. What is it that really has your heart?
Lagarde: That’s complicated. I think it’s this issue of relevance … that is of real concern to me. You see, this is a very fascinating institution because it’s completely counter-cyclical. When the world around the IMF goes downhill,
A pertinent reminder with ANZAC coming up soon. My late father when in his 80s, who fought in WW2 as cannon fodder for these low life families who foment wars for profits (the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers) – he told us wars would never end because they make money. As a very young 17 year old he set off to serve his country, along with his four brothers, oblivious to the real agenda of the powers that be. Check out the article link below and links to other posts also below.
All wars are pre-arranged by this secret Ruling Cabal which is best defined as the circle of top world Banksters and industrialist run out of the City of London Financial District, a separate country like the Vatican with its own ambassadors and police. These folks claim to be personally anointed by Lucifer himself and some have claimed to have personal alien or demon guides that provide protection and counsel. Thus all wars are Bankster wars and appear to be demonically inspired. Some experts have discovered a strong association with secret esoteric “super-masonic” occult groups which are luciferian based and this Ruling Cabal. Others have discovered a long term association with these Ruling Cabal members and alien or ET entities, and believe these cabal members are actually infected with alien/ET demonic parasites who demand and promote mass death and destruction upon the Earth once they gain control over the Cabal member who has lost his soul or been “soul-snatched”. Some researchers have labeled this Ruling Cabal Babylonian Zionism, or the “Synagogue of satan” and claim that it’s wealth and power is based on the use of “Babylonian Money-Magick” which is the use of fiat money lent at pernicious usury in order to create massive debt slavery, massive asset stripping and provide complete but hidden control. Others attribute it power to the anointing of Lucifer and their use of the evil “black arts” which include deception, slight of hand and human sacrifice. If the cabal can issue or print all the money it needs, it can buy up almost every single politician it wants as long as it keeps the effects of all the excess money mitigated to prevent complete collapse of the monetary system. Of course experts know that the creation of the US Petro Dollar which required all oil sales to be made in money converted to US dollars first was a stop gap effort to delay reality until the Ruling Cabal could use America to subdue the whole world on the behalf of these City of London Bankster’s before the system eventually crashed. The reason why the US Dollar is now only worth only about 2 cents of what is was worth when it was originally issued is because the Federal Reserve Bank has been issuing more and more money to buy politicians and support their secret black operations designed to develop alien technology to keep complete control over “we the people” and this Ponzi system is eventually doomed to failure.
The following video clip is a classic by Michael Rivera of whatreallyhappened.com. It is 45 minutes long and most folks can get the main message which is very important in the first 5-10 minutes if time is limited. For those that have the time and want hard core specifics, the rest of this clip is perhaps the best description of how Banksters cause wars ever published.
“We are dealing with a criminal undertaking at a global level … and there is an ongoing war, it is led by the United States, it may be carried out by a number of proxy countries, which are obeying orders from Washington … The global war on terrorism is a US undertaking, which is fake, it’s based on fake premises. It tells us that somehow America and the Western world are going after a fictitious enemy, the Islamic state, when in fact the Islamic state is fully supported and financed by the Western military alliance and America’s allies in the Persian Gulf. … They say Muslims are terrorists, but it just so happens that terrorists are Made in America. They’re not the product of Muslim society, and that should be abundantly clear to everyone on this floor. … The global war on terrorism is a fabrication, a big lie and a crime against humanity.” (source) (source)
The quote above comes from prominent author and Canadian economist Dr. Michel Chossudovsky, who is the University of Ottawa’s Emeritus Professor of Economics, spoken at the International Conference on the New World Order, which was organized and sponsored by the Perdana Global Peace Foundation. You can find a full video of that conference at the end of this article.
“What is at stake is more than one small country; it is a big idea, a new world order, where diverse nations are drawn together in common cause to achieve the universal aspirations of mankind: peace, and security, freedom, and the rule of law.” – George Bush Sr. (source)
Here is an insightful overview of our world histories, a video presentation by Abby Martin (SOURCE). It tellingly reveals just who is running our world. Historical overviews are particularly useful when joining dots … we can so easily get bogged down in detail that we don’t see the whole scope of events. As with the elephant analogy, we are like a person with a blindfold, trying to decipher just what the ‘beast’
is … feeling the tail, the legs, the trunk … wondering ‘what we have here’? Step back however, remove the blindfold, view the whole animal and ‘voila! An elephant.
So here, Martin reveals the ‘small’ and surprising detail about the number of military bases there are world wide and the true nature of the many military interventions we’ve witnessed … the carefully crafted ‘news’ that interpreted these world events for us (courtesy of our long time whore media) … identifying for us the ‘villains’ and the ‘heroes’ … all revealing a somewhat different story than what we thought about who is really running the show.

Further food for thought … ‘War is a Racket’ by Major General Smedley Butler
Listen to Major General Smedley Butler’s now well known speech on war, cited in Abby Martin’s video. This is a short 9 minute version. Or watch the full version (which is a full summary of his book, info below) at this link.
INFORMATION from the longer video posted on Miguel Ferreira‘s Youtube channel.
“Smedley Darlington Butler (July 30, 1881 – June 21, 1940) was a United
States Marine Corps major general, the highest rank authorized at that time, and at the time of his death the most decorated Marine in U.S. history.
During his 34-year career as a Marine, he participated in military actions in the Philippines, China, in Central America and the Caribbean during the Banana Wars, and France in World War I. Butler is well known for having later become an outspoken critic of U.S. wars and their consequences, as well as exposing the Business Plot, an alleged plan to overthrow the U.S. government.
By the end of his career, Butler had received 16 medals, five for heroism. He is one of 19 men to receive the Medal of Honor twice, one of three to be awarded both the Marine Corps Brevet Medal and the Medal of Honor, and the only Marine to be awarded the Brevet Medal and two Medals of Honor, all for separate actions.
In 1933, he became involved in a controversy known as the Business Plot, when he told a congressional committee that a group of wealthy industrialists were planning a military coup to overthrow Franklin D. Roosevelt, with Butler selected to lead a march of veterans to become dictator, similar to other Fascist regimes at that time. The individuals involved all denied the existence of a plot and the media ridiculed the allegations. A final report by a special House of Representatives Committee confirmed some of Butler’s testimony.
In 1935, Butler wrote a book entitled War Is a Racket, where he described and criticized the workings of the United States in its foreign actions and wars, such as those he was a part of, including the American corporations and other imperialist motivations behind them. After retiring from service, he became a popular activist, speaking at meetings organized by veterans, pacifists, and church groups in the 1930s.
