Conspiracy nut.

Looking for a cheap laugh at a social gathering? Simply dig-up some “conspiracy theory” which may have leaked into the view of the masses, point at the “conspiracy nuts” who propound this hypothesis; and then make some derisive remark.

Everyone knows” that all conspiracy theories are ridiculous, and thus all conspiracy theorists are “nuts”. The mainstream media tells us this all the time. But what happens when we are not dealing with conspiracy-theory? What happens when we’re dealing with conspiracy-fact?

Those who have been vacationing on a distant planet may not have heard of “LIBOR”, the London InterBank Offer Rate; and the basis for (according to the bankers themselves) more than $500 trillion in human commerce. It is produced through anonymous data, submitted by the largest of the Western Big Banks; and the integrity of this system is 100% dependent on the honesty of these bankers.

For those readers who are not currently shaking with laughter, you must have missed the Reuters article where ¼ of the Wall Street executives who responded to a public survey expressed the opinion that crime was now a way of life in banking. Of course, the more interesting number is unknown: what percentage of Wall Street executives would have expressed that opinion if it were not a public survey?

Not surprisingly (in a process only “regulated” by other bankers); in early 2012 the conspiracy to rig the LIBOR interest rate was finally exposed. Originally the UK government and the Corporate Media attempted to peddle the fairy-tale that Barclay’s Bank had “colluded” alone to rig an interest rate set collectively by more than a dozen Big Banks.  But this Conspiracy of One fantasy was soon abandoned.

As of this writing, several of these banks are now “strongly suspected” in this criminal conspiracy; as the international investigation into the largest financial crime in the history of commerce ‘advances’(?) at an almost imperceptible pace. Meanwhile the crime continues.

The same Big Banks are still colluding to set the LIBOR rate, in a process which is still totally lacking any “independent safeguards” – i.e. having someone other than the Criminals police themselves. We thus now have the two largest conspiracies in the history of humanity side-by-side, by dollar value (roughly ten times as large as the entire global economy).

First we have the conspiracy by Western Big Banks to rig LIBOR itself. That conspiracy is now out in the open (more or less). Piggy-backing on that, we have the conspiracy to hide the extent of this crime, and to simply continue the crime as long as possible.

However, living in societies where even conspiracy-fact is ignored by the Sheep; conspiring in the open is now becoming a way of life for our shameless politicians and banksters. Does anyone remember Hank “Bazooka” Paulson; former CEO of Goldman Sachs and Treasury Secretary for the United States (in that order)?

In 2008; after the reckless gambling of the Wall Street cabal had blown-up the entire U.S. financial system, and severely destabilized the global financial system, the primary priority (apart from nearly $30 trillion in ‘financial CPR’) was to completely and permanently eradicate gambling by banks. What did we end up getting instead from the ex-Goldman Sachs CEO/Treasury Secretary?

Paulson and the Wall Street banks conspired to create what he (and the flock of Corporate Media parrots) quickly called “too big to fail.”  Rather than eliminating gambling by banks; Paulson not only entrenched gambling as a way of life for U.S. Big Banks, he made it possible for these financial casinos to increase their gambling with reckless abandon.

Paulson’s (public) message to his friends (and fellow Wall Street bankers)? No matter how much gambling you do, no matter how reckless the bets, no matter how big the losses; “I’ve got your back.” In the world of conspiracies/corruption; this is known as “having friends in High Places.”

 

As I’ve pointed out on multiple occasions in the past, the Too Big To Fail conspiracy is nothing less than institutionalized blackmail: “pay off all our gambling debts, or we blow up the U.S. financial system.”Conspiring-in-the-open is brazen. Conspiring-in-the-open to blackmail your own government – and getting away with it – is absurd.

This brings us to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, Top-Cop in the United States; and another fan of conspiring-in-the-open with the Wall Street cabal. Holder has managed to raise the ante on the Paulson/Wall Street conspiracy. How is this possible? The Top-Cop has pronounced the Wall Street banksters (a class of confessed criminals) as being “too big to jail.”

If Paulson’s message to his Wall Street cronies was absurd; Holder’s is simply insane. No matter how much crime you commit, no matter how serious the crimes, no matter how many times you get caught; “I’ve got your back.” The Attorney General of the United States has publicly pledged (in advance) to cover-up any/all Wall Street crime. Now that is a “conspiracy”!

Being skeptical is an admirable trait in our 21st century society. For instance, it would have been admirable for the Sheep to have been skeptical when the bankers, politicians, and Corporate Media all told us our Big Banks are now “too big to fail.” It would have been admirable to have been skeptical when Top-Cop Holder asserted that the banksters are now “too big to jail.”

Stating that one does not “believe in sasquatches” is a perfectly credible assertion to make. However, what if that same person makes the same assertion immediately after being trampled by a herd of sasquatches? Not so credible.

In this scenario, who is the “nut”? Is it the person who says “I believe in sasquatches”? Or is it the person who continues to assert “I don’t believe in sasquatches” -- with size-20 footprints all over their body? At what point do the Non-Conspiracy Nuts confront their own self-denial? Put another way; how many times does a Non-Conspiracy Nut need to be trampled by sasquatches before finally acknowledging he/she does “believe in sasquatches”?

Let me conclude with a joke…for all of the “conspiracy nuts” reading this piece. How many Non-Conspiracy Nuts does it take to conspire to screw in a light-bulb? An infinite number – since none of them believe in conspiracies.

He who laughs last, laughs best.

To ettienn,

Jeff, I would very much appreciate you sharing the link to that video of storm troopers entering Boston homes. I discussed the assertion above with my wife this morning and she said that she'll believe it when she sees it. I would very much like to show it to her.

Thanks,
Ettienn (Steve)

Hope this helps- Earl

What are the odds, after the coming economic crash, on the Banksters of the world being hunted down like Natzi war criminals?


Paxjds, when the Sheep have NOTHING TO SAY after the U.S. attorney general promises to COVER UP all Wall Street crime; I'm not optimistic. For all we know, the Sheep will start handing out "medals" to the Banksters tomorrow...?

...Lots if inconvenient truths floating around. I watched a video of storm trooper fascists entering homes of law abiding citizens in Watertown, Mass. Deja vue when they came for the Jews in Nazi Germany. Template for martial law; practice run? I see that Canada is now with the program of potential false flaggery. Seems like the desperation of the oligarchs is now so, so obvious. Are there FEMA camps in Canada? But to the topic: there's rules for "them" and rules for us. Always been so; no real surprise. Their crowning achievement may turn out to be the lack of outrage over HSBC laundering trillions? in drug money and thereby supporting terrorists; actually funny if the joke wasn't on us. Keep up the good work, but protect yourself.



Apberusdisvet, on the Forum I've been framing recent, extreme events in one of two contexts.

As you say; if the Oligarchs feel COMPELLED to engage in such open/reckless actions this reeks of "desperation". Conversely, if they (arrogantly) simply chose to spring these events on us in this manner than it is suggestive of MISCALCULATION. smilies/wink.gif

Jeff; Slightly OT post to your comments. Marvelous; this internet thingey. Lots if inconvenient truths floating around. I watched a video of storm trooper fascists entering homes of law abiding citizens in Watertown, Mass. Deja vue when they came for the Jews in Nazi Germany. Template for martial law; practice run? I see that Canada is now with the program of potential false flaggery. Seems like the desperation of the oligarchs is now so, so obvious. Are there FEMA camps in Canada?
