TOPIC: Swiss accuse Germans of "economic espionage"

Swiss accuse Germans of "economic espionage" 2 Years, 6 Months ago Karma: 262
It seems the ultra-wealthy are getting NERVOUS. Understand that MOST of the wealth of the TRILLIONAIRES is secretly held/stored in Switzerland - a national government which has been OWNED by bankers for several centuries.

How wealthy/powerful are these Swiss-based Oligarchs? In World War II, while Hitler rampaged all across Europe and Africa, not respecting a SINGLE international treaty or border, all the Swiss-based Oligarchs had to do was declare themselves "neutral" to keep the Nazi war-machine at bay.

Now THAT is "power".


However, with these trillionaire Oligarchs having stolen so much of our wealth that our societies are all on the verge of collapse, NOW they have become very anxious to HIDE all of that wealth.

And so we have the Swiss government INVENTING a new "crime" which they call "economic espionage". Note that the supposed "criminals" were German TAX INVESTIGATORS - attempting to get data on the wealth of these Oligarchs which was held in Credit Suisse accounts.

Apparently it is now a "crime" simply to try to find out how wealthy the ultra-wealthy REALLY are. Note that if the propaganda machine wants to call tax investigators "spies", and collecting data on wealth as "economic espionage", then clearly they must acknowledge my much more realistic metaphor: the "economic terrorism" being perpetrated by Wall Street against European governments.

In other words, if we can have "economic espionage" in the world, we can certainly have "economic terrorism". Note that the propaganda machine calls INVESTIGATORS "spies" - while it simply ignores the (real) TERRORISTS.

Just another example of the one-sided which is all we are ever allowed to see by the propaganda machine...


"Switzerland Wants German Investigators Arrested on Espionage"


www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-03-31/switze...ed-on-espionage.html

Switzerland is seeking to arrest three German tax investigators who negotiated the purchase of data on Credit Suisse Group AG (CSGN) clients for economic espionage, a German government spokeswoman said.

The tax investigators from the state of North Rhine- Westphalia negotiated the 2.5 million-euro ($3.3 million) purchase of personal information of clients of Credit Suisse who may have evaded taxes in Germany in 2010. Ingrid Herden, the spokeswoman for the state’s finance ministry, said she couldn’t confirm more details.

The two countries have been trying to agree on a proposal for a withholding tax that would legalize undeclared assets by Germans held in Switzerland by imposing a retroactive income tax. German political parties have been fighting over the proposed tax rate.

German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble said the warrant won’t affect efforts by the two countries to reach such an accord.

“Switzerland has its legal system and we have our legal system,” Schaeuble told reporters today in Copenhagen after meeting with European finance counterparts. “The justice system in Switzerland is just as independent as it is in Germany.”

Switzerland’s public prosecution service confirmed it asked for administrative assistance from Germany in an investigation into the theft of tax data from Credit Suisse.

There is “concrete suspicion” that people inside Germany gave instructions to “spy on Credit Suisse” to gather the data, Jeannette Balmer, a Swiss prosecution spokeswoman, said in an e-mail today, without giving further detail.

This doesn't surprise me at all. During WWll I believe the nazis were able to cash in the life insurance policies of Jews & others they had killed. The Swiss banks and companies that held the policies paid up.

Another point to note is that surprisingly Switzerland has been clear of "terrorist attacks" and "terrorist operatives", can anyone guess why ?

Seb, that anecdote is a perfect illustration of how Fascism is NOT "an ideology". As I have pointed out previously, all that fascism is is a CRIME SYNDICATE operated by Big Government, financed by Big Business (the "front" for the ultra-wealthy Oligarchs) and enforced by Big Military.

And all that fascist systems/governments do is STEAL - and they don't care how they have to bully/terrorize their own populations to do it. These systems function in an INDENTICAL manner to organized crime, and obviously organized crime is NOT a political ideology.

P.S. Note that EVERY Fascist government always has a military which is disproportionately LARGE in comparison to its own population (and other nations of the world).

Look at the current Axis of Evil:

U.S.: biggest war-machine in the history of the world.
Israel: gigantic war-machine
UK: huge war machine

Of course there IS no war-machine in Switzerland...because it's "neutral". What a concept! We could PERMANENTLY eliminate war all over the world simply by having every country declare itself to be "neutral".

Excellent point Samix.

Yes, no "false flag" operations are allowed in the HOME of Big Money.

Shall we call this the "exception which proves the rule"?

I decided to Google "terrorism in Switzerland" to see what I could find. Other than one, small incident involving an "Armenian terrorist" in 1981 (is anyone afraid of the Armenians?); here is all that I could find: ONE "attempted bombing" against a state-of-the-art IBM "nano- and bio-technology research facility".

The (supposed) "terrorists" involved in this alleged attack were members of a group known as "Il Silvestre". They are labeled by the propaganda machine alternatively as either "eco-anarchists" or "eco-terrorists".

Of interest, while it can be documented that these "terrorists" have been involved in numerous PROTESTS, and illegal acts including some acts of arson and assault; I have been unable to locate even a SINGLE instance of a bona fide "terrorist act" - i.e. at least one person being killed, or some ACTUAL "explosion" (even a firecracker).

In other words, there is nothing to suggest "terrorism" at all. This is PURELY a criminal matter, indeed most of the "terrorism" doesn't rank above the level of simple vandalism.
How long before students painting graffiti on buildings are labeled "terrorists"?

Note also that the Il Silvestre group is not a SWISS-based group, but rather one which was formed/based in Italy.

Here are some links on this side-issue:

"Eco-terrorists 'plot to blow up IBM headquarters' thwarted in routine traffic stop"

www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-1268968...ne-traffic-stop.html

"Eco anarchists: A new breed of terrorist?"


www.independent.co.uk/environment/eco-an...rrorist-1975559.html

...and some NON-mainstream links on this subject:

"If Deep Green Resistance & the Occupy movement merged…"


earthfirstnews.wordpress.com/tag/il-silvestre/

"Italy: 'Il Silvestre' defendents found guilty"

news.infoshop.org/article.php?story=20060717132717600


Meanwhile, getting back to "REAL terrorism" - i.e. terrorism by "radical Islamic" boogeymen - despite the fact that Switzerland is described as having a "large and radical" domestic Muslim population, there has never been anything which even the propagandists could classify as "terrorist activity".

This obviously begs the question of what does a Muslim have to say/do to be branded a "radical" in the West? Does it require anything more protesting Israel's apartheid imprisonment of the Palestinian people? Or the War for Drugs in Afghanistan? Or the War for Oil in Iraq?

Isn't it funny how all of the CHRISTIAN extremists in the U.S. who cheered on the U.S. military as it carpet-bombed Afghanistan and Iraq are not considered "radicals", but if you voice strong opposition to the various CRIMES committed against Muslim populations (primarily by the West), this THIS makes you a "radical"
