Using the Banker Code Book - Pt 1

It didn't take long for the arrival of my first shot at using the code book/map that would shed light on the finaglings of the Money Changers, i.e. the Central Bankers of the world. It had fallen into my hands just a few days ago, in the guise of an article by Andrew Hitchcock. I am interested in what should be a leading issue in these final days of the Presidential elections but instead has been buried under the onslaught of utter trivia heaped on the whole effort by the Republican choice for Vice-Prez, and that is, what's shaping up between the U.S. and the one country that still has the ability to wipe the U.S. off the map, despite the never questioned orthodoxy about that country's supposed loss of the so-called "Cold War."

When I suggested in my earlier post that Hitchcock's article could serve as a sort of secret map showing what the Money-Changers are up to, and thereby disclosing what is likely to happen with the truly Big Issues of the world, I knew that that would be contingent first on being able to identify the main characters in the act, and two, on being able to understand what they were saying and what was being said about them. Of course there is also a third proviso, and that is being able to figure out what they can do and the effects it can have on our abilities to keep the burgers and the French fries coming.

Yesterday the Reuters business section carried several articles about the Russian central bank and specifically some of that country's finance officers. They don't seem to be worried about a thing, save for eventually having to follow the officials they replaced by spending time of their own in jail on routine charges of malfeasance in office.

(In Russia, which historically has had so many different kinds of prisons to choose from, to the point that that entire vast area that essentially defines it, Siberia, has long been used as a gigantic gulag, time in prison seems to hold no more of a stigma than does the process of learning to talk. So, if J. McCain were to use his vaunted "foreign policy experience" to go over there and open negotiations by brightly saying something that elicits so much instant sympathy in the U.S., such as, "You know, I was a POW for five years," the Russians would merely give him a cold, blank stare that would clearly say, So? What else is new, fool?)

It seems that Russia is holding some of that real estate paper that has gotten U.S. finances in such a bind, and they are thinking of being a little less enthusiastic about collecting any more of it. And meanwhile they're not worried either about their stock market having fallen some because of foreign investors being hustled by Western politicians into pulling out of the Russian sector. It seems that the Russians admit to having a reserve of at least 600 billion in gold, outside of a lot more that remains to be pulled out of the ground -- more than enough to cover a piddly 10 or 20 billion dollar loss on the stock market.

And meanwhile one Russian deputy finance manager, a central banker, said that the West was too involved with the credit crunch and bank failures to think about punishing Russia for the Georgia thing.

So there you have it. A Money-Changer has said it. There will be no shooting between the U.S. and Russia any time soon, and, among other things, that means that in his recent trip to Georgia and other nearby places, D. Cheney was acting only in his capacity as being himself a servant of the Money Changers, and this time he was playing one of the roles he does best -- that of a vicious dog running up and down behind the fence while snarling and snapping and barking as loudly as possible.

And since Russia is in line to become Iran's biggest asset, especially with regard to an anti-aircraft system that can track 100 enemy planes at one time and shoot them down from 75 miles away, this is sure to make the Bushies and the Olmerts say, "Whoa! Let's take another look at this."

Well, one of the staples of TV crime dramas for a long time has been, "...Follow the money!" And though no one could be worse equipped, I am making a feeble effort to do just that. It will help, however, if the news reports always use the term "central bank," as Reuters did in this case.
