It is interesting that until recently, all the major initiatives to investigate the illegal and criminal activities of banks came from Washington. A certain amount of activity has also been witnessed in London, which (oh, the horror!) has started to prosecute Rothschild banks. Some experts are seeing this kind of “unpatriotic” position from the British authorities as a result of the fact that the country’s current leadership is heavily dependent on Washington like never before.
Until very recently, the European Union (Continental Europe) did not show any kind of initiative to investigate the shady practices of banks. However, the latest scandal involving a cartel in the credit-default swaps (CDS) market shows that Brussels (the European Union) has also woken up and is starting to get drawn into the game known as “banking investigations”. By the middle of 2013, all the major national and supranational institutions in the West had found themselves embroiled in this dangerous game. It makes an understanding of the overall picture even more complicated. The risk that the banking world is going to move from a state of controlled chaos into an uncontrollable tailspin is growing with each passing month. One can categorically argue, however, that the behind-the-scenes struggle of two banking clans is weakening the overall position of that once-consolidated power personified by the Federal Reserve System.
The “struggle between two banking clans” scheme is a coarsening of the real picture, of course. However, a number of authors are detailing this scheme. For example, the Russian academic Vladimir Pavlenko is pointing to the fact that there is a struggle for superiority going on within the Rothschild clan between the English and French branches of the family. Many authors are quite rightly pointing out that a number of world-calibre banks have lost their clear affiliation to a given clan. For example, the same Pavlenko calls attention to certain Wall Street banks that are under the joint control of both global clans. The bank JP Morgan is a case in point.
Many analysts believe that there are also other influential centres of interest in the world besides the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers. The Vatican, for example. What is more, it is not only and not so much as a spiritual and religious centre, but as a centre of financial influence.
A “third force” or a group within the clan?
We have all become accustomed to the statement that bankers rule the world. However, according to some experts, the increasingly apparent weakening of a number of banks from the “core” of the global financial system could lead to the power, authority and influence being transferred over to those who are not affiliated with either the Rothschilds banking clan or the Rockefellers banking clan. These can be called the “third force”. This “third force” is primarily associated with machineries of government in the US and Great Britain, as well as other countries in the West, not directly linked to present-day moneylenders. There is evidence of opposition to banksters within the US state apparatus, which is regarded as the main body of today’s “third force”. Thus, David Wilcock talks about an anti-banking conspiracy in America being prepared by “US federal marshals”. As an example of the courageous step being taken by such “marshals”, he refers to the investigation that has begun against Barclays Bank with regard to Libor rate manipulations. Wilcock points to the fact that the investigation was started by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission – an independent agency of the Justice Department. The Justice Department is only a small part of the “third force” in America, however. Wilcock believes that the core of the opposition to the banking establishment is the US Department of Defense. The scandal caused by the revelations of Edward Snowden has given rise to a number of publications on the attitudes of American secret service employees. These publications maintain that the US intelligence agencies currently include quite a few oppositionists to the domination of banksters. There are probably even more within the Pentagon. Over the last few years, quite a number of senior officials at the Pentagon have spoken out against America’s military ventures in different parts of the world. They did not overstep the mark in their criticism, however – they did not make a direct link between these ventures and America’s financial and banking elite…
Discussion of the “spy scandal” story has also highlighted the issue of the relative autonomy of US intelligence agencies from the rest of the state apparatus and monetary authorities. In strategic terms, the intelligence agencies would like to play an independent role and take charge of the “third force”, with the intention of including the military within its ranks, as well as computer, communications and information technology companies (primarily internet companies). The motto of the “third force” is simple: information is money, power and authority. It is this “third force”, with people in every echelon of the US authorities, that was intending to carry out a “soft” coup in Washington and dramatically restrict the power of banksters in the US. This refers to plans to carry out a full audit of the FRS, reinstate the Glass-Steagall Act, toughen the Dodd-Frank Act and so on. The “third force” has a wide social base in America and throughout the world, taking into account the growing anger of people against banks (remember the “Occupy Wall Street” movement).
I think that the “third force” could be directing some strong blows towards banksters as early as autumn 2013. It is more than likely we will hear about new banking revelations and new scandals before long. In the new phase of this story, the pressure of the “third force” on American banksters could go beyond purely legislative initiatives (legislative pressure). “Federal marshals” could launch serious investigations against Wall Street banks (administrative and legal pressure). Having “practised” on European banksters, they could start a vicious fight with their own. However, already this summer (at the height of the “spy scandal”), the Justice Department, the Securities and Exchange Commission and the US Office of the Attorney General began a serious “incursion” into the Bank of America, which is probably the most “Rockefeller” bank. It is being charged with dishonest and even fraudulent operations with mortgage-backed securities on the eve of, and during, the 2007-2009 financial crisis. So far, pressure on the bank is of a “controlled” nature, but at any moment it could move into the category of universal scandal.
At this point, it should be borne in mind that the Rockefellers (unlike the Rothschilds) are not just a banking clan. As well as its banks on Wall Street, the Rockefeller empire includes global oil companies and a military-industrial complex, which are joined by “high tech” companies and numerous American intelligence agencies. As mentioned earlier, the Rothschild clan does not come across as a united monolith; there is a constant struggle going on between different branches within the clan, primarily the English and the French. The same can also be said of the Rockefeller clan. Attempts to curb the greed of Wall Street banks in recent years has not only given rise to pressure from broad sections of society, but also the displeasure of some of America’s elite who are part of the Rockefeller empire. This displeasure has not yet developed into the organisation of high-profile scandals involving certain Wall Street banks. Rather, it is manifesting itself in continuous attempts to legislatively restrict the lawlessness of Wall Street banks that is threatening the existence of American nationhood. In the process, American congressmen and senators are already preparing the intermediates of acts more radical than any that have been passed so far. The act for the full liquidation of the Federal Reserve as an illegitimate structure, for example, or the act for the nationalisation of private banks. These acts were discussed at the height of the last financial crisis, but received a rather modest amount of votes. It is quite possible that at the onset of the second wave of the financial crisis, the forces David Wilcock referred to as “federal marshals” will be brave enough to finally place the overreaching financial oligarchy of the Rockefeller clan under its control. However, if this happened then the Rothschilds could find themselves the masters of the situation in the banking world…
The sharp contradictions between the various groups within the global oligarchy are hiding behind the outward unipoliarity of the modern world (“Pax Americana”). Sometimes they escape to the surface – including by way of high-profile banking scandals. It can only be assumed that the avalanche of scandals like these is going to grow and who knows, the “controlled chaos” might then develop into an “uncontrollable power”.
