Paul Volcker, Federal Reserve Chairman during the savings and loan crisis, was appointed to head an inquiry regarding the Paul Wolfowitz “affair” See Part I and the lack of a serious investigation by Volcker began an international questioning of honesty of American leadership.
Though most Americans view Volcker positively, his investigation did not address the corruption at the World Bank and as a result Europeans called for an end to the 66-year “Gentlemen’s Agreement” that allowed the US to appoint the President of the World Bank. The only amusing thing about those words is this: When it comes to corruption in government and finance, the only place dirtier than America is Europe.
Had the media reported Karen Hudes’ warnings to Congress and the Treasury Department about corruption at the World Bank, America could have avoided the resultant tarnish to its international reputation.The World Bank stands—much like a traffic cop—at numerous world intersections directing traffic—money traffic. It has 188 member nations and shares with the International Monetary Fund IMF a Board of Governors.
During a speech in 2006, Soviet dissident Vladimir Bukovksy referred to classified documents held by the Politburo and the Central Committee. The confidential documents spelled out a plan to turn Europe into a totalitarian super-state.
In 1989, during a visit by a Trilateral Commission delegation sent to convince Mikhail Gorbachev to turn Russia over to globalist loan sharks at the World Bank and IMF, the former French president Giscard d’Estaing told Gorbachev: “I cannot tell you exactly when it will happen – probably within 15 years – but Europe is going to be a federal state.” This was several years before the signing of the Maastricht treaty creating the European Union.
“How the hell did Giscard d’Estaing know what was going to happen in 15 years time?” Bukovksy asked during his speech. “And surprise, surprise, how did he become the author of the European constitution? A very good question. It does smell of conspiracy, doesn’t it?”
Six years after Bukovksy’s revelation, we are witnessing the final phase of “European integration” as a bankster devised economic crisis sweeps the continent. On Saturday, the president of the Czech Republic, Václav Klaus, told The Telegraph that “two-faced” politicians are paving the way for the EU super-state. “We need to think about how to restore our statehood and our sovereignty. That is impossible in a federation. The EU should move in an opposite direction,” he said.

a long held American taboo against seeking foreign money in US elections” and that “fundraising in foreign capitals could become the new frontier in US presidential campaign financing”.
US presidential hopeful Mitt Romney has just ended an international tour intended to prop his political credentials as a world leader.
There are things going on at the Bilderberg conference in Virginia today that most of us will never learn about, such as who among the attendees got the sole presidential suite at the host hotel, a faux Georgian Marriott? Was it the Queen of the Netherlands, the president of the World Bank, the executive chairman of Google – or perhaps Henry Kissinger?

…And A One World Economic System
The American Dream
Wednesday, May 2, 2012
When it comes to Barack Obama, one of the most important things to understand is that he is a committed globalist. He firmly believes that more “global governance” (the elite don’t like to use the term “global government”) will make the world a much better place. Throughout his time in the White House, Obama has consistently sought to strengthen international institutions such as the UN, the IMF, the World Bank and the WTO. At every turn, Obama has endeavored to more fully integrate America into the “global community”. Since he was elected, Obama has signed a whole host of new international economic agreements. He regularly speaks of the need for “cooperation” among global religions and he has hosted a wide variety of different religious celebrations at the White House. Obama once stated that “all nations must come together to build a stronger global regime”. If you do not want to live in a “global regime” that is just too bad. To globalists such as Obama, it is inevitable that the United States of America will be merged into the emerging global system. Just this week, Obama has issued a new executive order that seeks to “harmonize” U.S. economic regulations with the rest of the world. This new executive order is yet another incremental step that is pushing us closer to a North American Union and a one world economic system. Unfortunately, most Americans have absolutely no idea what is happening.
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who was elected to his first term with help from the Tea Party in 2010 and who is sometimes cited as a potential GOP vice presidential pick,
lauded the United Nations, the World Bank, and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for following their respective visions instead of asserting “narrow American interests” in a speech today on U.S. foreign policy.
In remarks at the liberal Brookings Institution in Washington, D.C., Rubio sketched the advances made globally since the end of World War II as a result of America’s leadership.
“The purpose of the institutions we established, from the United Nations to the World Bank and the IMF was to spread peace and prosperity, not to assert narrow American interests,” said Sen. Rubio.
COMMENT FROM ALEX JONES: Maybe The Onion should also make jokes about the Nazis mowing down Jewish women, as this group of avowed-Eugenicists, too, acted out murder in the name of saving the earth. Or what about the armed troops who burned down Ugandan villages and killed women & children last year on behalf of a British carbon trading company linked to the World Bank? That, too, was a trendy, cool environmental acts of genocide to save us from global warming.
The prominent satire rag The Onion continues to bleed humor from the razor’s-edge of reality in an article that spoofs calls to kill off more than 2 billion people from the earth’s population ‘to save humanity.’
Satire Article Quips At Least 2 Billion Must Die to Save Earth onion 2billion dieThe January 26 piece, entitled “Scientists: ‘Look, One-Third Of The Human Race Has to Die for Civilization to Be Sustainable, So How Do We Want to Do This?“, so-closely reflects the real positions calling for coercive population control from prominent pseudo-scientists who’ve dominated policy, government posts and NGO organizations for the past hundred years that one can only laugh in horror.
Prison Planet.com » Are George Soros, The IMF And The World Bank Purposely Trying To Scare The Living Daylights Out Of Us?
The Economic CollapseJanuary 25, 2012Over the past couple of weeks, George Soros, the IMF and the World Bank have all issued incredibly chilling warnings about the possibility of an impending economic collapse.
Considering the power and the influence that Soros, the IMF and the World Bank all have over the global financial system, this is very alarming. So are they purposely trying to scare the living daylights out of us? Soros is even warning of riots in the streets of America. Unfortunately, way too often top global leaders say something in public because they want to “push” events in a certain direction. Do George Soros and officials at the IMF and World Bank hope to prevent a worldwide financial collapse by making these statements, or are other agendas at work? We may never know. But one thing is for sure – many of the top financial officials in the world are using language that is downright “apocalyptic”, and that is not a good sign for the rest of 2012.Right now, George Soros is saying things that he has never said before. Just check out what George Soros recently told Newsweek…. “I am not here to cheer you up. The situation is about as serious and difficult as I’ve experienced in my career,” Soros tells Newsweek. “We are facing an extremely difficult time, comparable in many ways to the 1930s, the Great Depression.
“Why do Paul, Beck, and the World Bank have the same monetary reform policy?” wonders Red Pill Radio. (I have no idea what Glenn Beck’s proposal for monetary reform is, so I’ll stick to Ron Paul and the World Bank.) This is like asking, “Why did the Germans and the Russians cooperate so well during the Battle of Stalingrad?”
The article says “Robert Zoellick [of the World Bank] favors gold money just like Ron Paul.” This is laughable. Just because someone utters the word “gold” does not mean he favors the classical gold standard, or indeed any kind of gold standard. What Zoellick said was, “The system should also consider employing gold as an international reference point of market expectations about inflation, deflation and future currency values.”
In George Orwell‘s oft-quoted and insightful book 1984, we clearly see how this work of fiction has become reality, and in turn how reality is turned back into fiction through the manipulative, inaccurate and deceptive reporting of mainstream media. As Orwell accurately wrote:
“Day by day and almost minute by minute the past was brought up to date. In this way every prediction made by the Party could be shown by documentary evidence to have been correct; nor was any item of news, or any expression of opinion, which conflicted with the needs of the moment, ever allowed to remain on record. All history was a palimpsest, scraped clean and reinscribed exactly as often as was necessary.”
Indeed, this is the “reality” we face when we turn to mainstream news networks, a reality coloured and created through corporate interests which reflect their own agendas instead of the truth.
For example, political leaders and the mainstream media continue to explain to us that the reason for NATO‘s armed intervention in Libya is to bring freedom and democracy to the subjugated masses. However, as Global Research has been consistently pointing out through deep analysis and on-the-ground reporting, the concept of “humanitarian war” is a gross oxymoron. As Prof. Michel Chossudovsky wrote this week:
“The objective of the NATO bombings from the outset was to destroy the country’s standard of living, its health infrastructure, its schools and hospitals, its water distribution system. And then “rebuild” with the help of donors and creditors under the helm of the IMF and the World Bank.” (Read: “Destroying a Country’s Standard of Living: What Libya Had Achieved, What has been Destroyed”).
In Bahrain, Global Research Correspondent Finian Cunningham exposes how the West not only works against democratic principles, but goes to extreme lengths to ensure that their interests are not destabilized. Here is what the well-funded corporate media did not report about this week:
“It is hard not to draw the conclusion that the whole prosecution has been a vile fabrication; a show trial whose real purpose was to impugn the entire Bahraini political opposition. Disgracefully, in order for the US-backed Bahraini regime to achieve that objective two innocent young men are facing firing squads and five others are languishing for life in prison.” (Read: “Bahrain: New Evidence of Framed-up Death Sentences Against Pro-Democracy Activists”)

Before I get to the items missed for today, I would make a comment about Hermann Cain’s “big” win in the Florida Straw poll.
Electing Cain would be like putting the fox in the hen house.
Cain is a former deputy chairman (1992-94) and chairman (1995-96) of the board of directors to the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. He knows nothing except the poison of fiat currency. Cain also stated on his radio show that the “FED” should not be audited. I don’t know if he’s received enough heat to change his mind. I wouldn’t hire someone who worked for my enemy.
His 9-9-9 proposal is more rubbish.
9% corporate tax, 9% income tax and 9% national sales tax which would finally kill off our economy although it’s just about DOA anyway.
On April 8, Soros is funding an international conference aimed at repeating the famed 1944 Bretton Woods conference that helped create the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund at the end of World War II, according to a report by the Media Research Center, or MRC.
This time, Soros is spending $50 million to rally 200 academic, business and government policy leaders to explore “establishing new international rules” and “reform the currency system.”

George Soros, writing for the Atlantic Monthly Digital Edition, must have been having a great laugh at his private joke when explaining how the greatest threat to Western civilization is no longer communism.
According to George Soros, billionaire capitalist extraordinaire, the greatest threat to western capitalism is . . . wait for it . . . George Soros!
“Although I have made a fortune in the financial markets, I now fear that the untrammeled intensification of laissez-faire capitalism and the spread of market values into all areas of life is endangering our open and democratic society. The main enemy of the open society, I believe, is no longer the communist but the capitalist threat.”

On April 8, a group he’s funded with $50 million is holding a major economic conference and Soros’s goal for such an event is to “establish new international rules” and “reform the currency system.” It’s all according to a plan laid out in a Nov. 4, 2009, Soros op-ed calling for “a grand bargain that rearranges the entire financial order.”
The event is bringing together “more than 200 academic, business and government policy thought leaders’ to repeat the famed 1944 Bretton Woods gathering that helped create the World Bank and International Monetary Fund. Soros wants a new ‘multilateral system,” or an economic system where America isn’t so dominant.
More than two-thirds of the slated speakers have direct ties to Soros. The billionaire who thinks “the main enemy of the open society, I believe, is no longer the communist but the capitalist threat” is taking no chances.

Have no doubt about it: This is a Soros event from top to bottom. Even Soros admits his ties to INET are a problem, saying, “there is a conflict there which I fully recognize.” He claims he stays out of operations. That’s impossible. The whole event is his operation.

A grim report prepared by France’s General Directorate for External Security (DGSE) obtained by Russia’s Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) states that president’s Obama and Sarkozy have “agreed in principal” to create a joint US-European military force to deal exclusively with a Global uprising expected this spring as our World runs out of food.
According to this report, Sarkozy, as head of the G-20 group of developed Nations, called for and received an emergency meeting with Obama this past Monday at the White House wherein he warned his American counterpart that the shock rise in food prices occurring due to an unprecedented series of disasters was threatening the stability of the entire World and could lead to the outbreak of Total Global War.
Just last week French Prime Minister Francois Fillon underlined that one of France’s top G-20 priorities was to find a collective response to “excessive volatility” in food prices now occurring, a statement joined by Philippe Chalmin, a top economic adviser to the French government, who warned the World may face social unrest including food riots in April as grain prices increase to unprecedented highs.
The fears of the French government over growing Global instability was realized this past week after food riots erupted in Algeria and Tunisia and left over 50 dead. So dire has the situation become in Tunisia that their government this morning rushed in massive amounts of troops and tanks to their capital city Tunis and instituted a Nationwide curfew in an order to quell the growing violence.
The United Nations, also, warned this past Friday that millions of people are now at risk after food prices hit their highest level ever as Global wheat stocks fell to 175.2 million tons from 196.7 million tons a year ago; Global corn stocks are said may be 127.3 million tons at the end of this season, compared with last month’s USDA outlook for 130 million tons; and Global soybean inventories will drop to 58.78 million tons at the end of this season, from 60.4 million tons a year earlier.
Robert Zoellick, president of the World Bank, further warned this past week that rising food prices are “a threat to global growth and social stability” as our World, for the first time in living memory, has been warned is just “one poor harvest away from chaos”.
Important to note about how dire the Global food situation has become is to understand the disasters that have befallen our World’s top wheat growing Nations this past year, and who in descending order are: China, India, United States, Russia, France, Canada, Germany, Ukraine, Australia and Pakistan.
From China’s disaster: 2010 China drought and dust storms were a series of severe droughts during the spring of 2010 that affected Yunnan, Guizhou, Guangxi, Sichuan, Shanxi, Henan, Shaanxi, Chongqing, Hebei and Gansu in the People’s Republic of China as well as parts of Southeast Asia including Vietnam and Thailand, and dust storms in March and April that affected much of East Asia. The drought has been referred to as the worst in a century in southwestern China.

The following is Part I to David DeGraw’s new book, “The Road Through 2012: Revolution or World War III.” This is the second installment to a new seven-part series that we will be posting throughout the next few weeks.

Introduction to The Road Through 2012: Revolution or World War III
When we analyze our current crisis, focusing on the past few years of economic activity blinds us to the history and context that are vital to understanding the root cause. What we have been experiencing is not the result of an unforeseen economic crash that appeared out of the blue with the collapse of the housing market. It was certainly not brought on by people who bought homes they couldn’t afford. To frame this crisis around a debate on economic theory misses the point entirely. To even blame it on greedy bankers, while essentially accurate, also misses the most vital point.
This crisis is the direct result of a strategic economic attack on the existence of a middle class and democracy worldwide. The stock market and economy have become weapons of mass oppression manipulated by an imperial banking cartel to impose order and exploit the masses. This crisis boldly represents the manifest evolution of the fascist spirit reasserting itself as the dominant ideology.
Many people are calling for the dismantling of all three organizations, including Alex Jones.
He says that the United Nations is purely an evil, corrupt and wicked organization.
Globalists set out agenda to re-brand global warming as overpopulation in bid to impose carbon taxesUN Blueprint: Dismantle Middle Class, Build World Government
Phil WhitehousePaul Joseph WatsonPrison Planet.comThursday, September 9, 2010
A UN blueprint for putting the organization back at the forefront of global governance alarmingly reveals the agenda to re-brand global warming as “overpopulation” as a means of dismantling the middle classes while using “global redistribution of wealth” and increased immigration to reinvigorate the pursuit of a one world government.United Nations Secretary General Ban ki-Moon and 60 of his top lieutenants met this past Labor Day at a secluded Austrian Alpine retreat in a bid to get the global warming agenda back on track after the dismal failure of Copenhagen.The planning paper that was handed out to delegates at the conference was subsequently leaked to Fox News, and outlines a strategy of exalting “global redistribution of wealth” as the basis of the climate change agenda.
As was uncovered during the Copenhagen summit, the program of “global redistribution of wealth” largely centers around looting the wealth of the middle classes in richer countries through carbon taxes and then using that money to bankroll the construction of world government.
As the leaked “Danish text” revealed, the money generated from consumption taxes will go directly to the World Bank, not to developing countries.Under the terms of this proposal, poorer countries will not simply be handed the money pillaged from richer nations, instead they will be forced to accept “green loans” in the name of combating climate change, a policy that would land the already financially devastated third world with even more debt, payable to globalist institutions such as the IMF.
World Bank Threatens “Drastic Steps Necessary” if Nations Refuse Population Reduction Implementation
It’s the eugenicist in the Discovery Channel building multiplied by a million. Not simply a lone eco-terrorist saying “parasitic human infants” must die, but one of the largest international financial institutions demanding it.
To make the contrast even more remarkable, James J. Lee scared the living daylights out of some Discovery Channel employees, the IMF & World Bank take hostage entire nations.In its 1984 World Development Report, the World Bank threatens nations who are slow in implementing the Bank’s “population policies” with “drastic steps, less compatible with individual choice and freedom.”
The report, literally saturated with dehumanizing proposals, is devoted entirely to the World Bank’s long-term strategies in regards to population control:“… economic policy and performance in the next decade will matter for population growth in the developing countries for several decades beyond; population policy and change in the rest of this century will set the terms for the whole of development strategy in the next.”
To illustrate how serious the World Bank is in achieving the overall strategy objectives on population control, the report does not shy away from outright threats:“Population policy has a long lead time; other development policies must adapt in the meantime. Inaction today forecloses options tomorrow, in overall development strategy and in future population policy. Worst of all, inaction today could mean that more drastic steps, less compatible with individual choice and freedom, will seem necessary tomorrow to slow population growth.”
