Ingesting the daily pablum from the Corporate Media is inevitably a two-stage process. First one reads the lines. Then one reads between the lines. When dealing with serial liars; it is always when one reads between-the-lines that “the news” gets interesting.
Case in point is the bail-in maneuver recently announced by the government of Poland, leading to the immediate question: when is a bail-in not a “bail-in”? The Polish government refused to characterize its taking control of financial assets as a bail-in when it defended this move. The Corporate Media (agents of the One Bank) refused to call it a bail-in in harshly criticizing the government’s actions.
We have the government of Poland refusing to call this act of financial piracy a “bail-in” (despite knowing precisely what it is doing) because it is expedient for it to do so. Conversely, we have the One Bank (via the Corporate Media) also refusing to call this maneuver a “bail-in” (despite understanding exactly what is taking place) because it is also expedient for it to do so. And so we see this pair engaged in this public display of “tap-dancing.”
The critical clue in sifting through the deceptive language of Reuters as it describes this scenario comes in the following excerpt:
…Polish officials have tried to reassure investors, saying that the overhaul avoids the more radical options of taking both bond and equity assets away from the private funds outright. [emphasis mine]
In making this statement, we see an unequivocal illustration that the government of Poland fully understands the Golden Rule in the Crime Syndicate financial system of the 21st century which has been imposed on us by the One Bank:
Control is superior to ownership with respect to any asset.
Indeed, this is a point which I made in subtle, implicit terms in a previous commentary, The One Bank – but where I lacked the space to delve into this critical distinction explicitly. When I wrote about this “single, banking monopoly”; it was scrupulously noted that this shadowy entity (or “super-entity” in the words of the Swiss researchers) controlled rather than “owned” 40% of the global economy.
What is the legal (and factual) distinction between “ownership” and “control”? Why is control now superior to (mere) ownership? The answer to the first question has always been simple and apparent. The answer to the second question has become apparent – thanks to the recent crimes of the One Bank, and its Minions.
Ownership (by itself) neither explicitly or implicitly confers anything other than “legal title” of the asset in question. Control, on the other hand, directly implies legal and/or physical possession of the asset(s) in question. Why is control now actually superior to ownership?
In societies which respect and uphold the Rule of Law, ownership (i.e. legal title) reigns supreme. However, several years ago the One Bank assassinated the Rule of Law in most Western regimes – while our Puppet Governments sat back and watched.
It has now demonstrated the reality of that assassination with several blatant financial crimes, which its Stooges in the Corporate Media (and our own governments) have the audacity to call “precedents”. The pattern is as clear and obvious as it is repugnant.

The realm of precious metals is a broad and diverse one. Indeed, for those who heed the propaganda of the mainstream media; nearly anything can “cause” the prices of gold and silver to go higher or lower (usually lower).
For investors inside the sector; an important facet of precious metals is economic justice. In societies with “honest money”, not only are workers able to keep their daily wage (rather than have it relentlessly clawed away from them by banker “inflation”) but that wage tends to rise steadily with time – reflecting increasing overall prosperity.
Conversely, the One Bank’s dishonest world of fiat, paper currencies is an entirely opposite regime. Here workers see their wages directly stolen from them at an ever-increasing rate via the Banksters theft-by-currency dilution. The chart below illustrates this serial theft.
According to the Corporate Media and our lying governments; we live in a “low inflation” world (while a “food inflation crisis” ravages the planet). Believe that lie, and we get the blue line; pretending that wages have remained roughly flat over the past 40 years. Move to the Real World, however, and we see an entirely different reality (the green line).
In the Real World; ever-increasing money-printing causes ever-increasing currency dilution (i.e. inflation). And when we discount wages with realistic inflation numbers to express wages in “real dollars”; we see the average wage of the U.S. worker plummeting by more than 50% -- all the way to Great Depression levels (and still falling). The Middle Class have become the Working Poor.
But that still isn’t good enough for the One Bank and its minions in the Corporate Media. Not only do they want to see these slave-wages continue falling lower and lower; they want to hear the Slaves say they like it this way. Hence the September 4th lecture to the Little People from Bloomberg, (maliciously) released right after Labour Day.
The cynical title of this attack on all workers was Can We Pay A Minimum Wage Which Makes Everyone Rich? This sort of straw-man analysis is typical of these Corporate elitists as they “explain” why the Rich should (always) get richer and richer, and the Poor (i.e. everyone else) should (always) get poorer and poorer.
