Who Runs The World And
Controls The Value Of Assets?
By Joan Veon
Today, after the conversion of Iraq to the Banklords, only five countries in the world are without a central bank: Iran, North Korea, Sudan, Cuba and Libya . All of these just happen to be on George Bush's "Evil of Axis" list.
At the January, 2006 World Economic Forum, five of the world's most important economists bewailed the fact that they had missed the rise in oil and in gold. By May, gold had risen to $730 oz. while energy had gone over $70 bbl.
When gold stayed at $600 oz. after falling from its high in May and the oil markets reached $75 bbl., their most recent high, I asked myself what would be used to change the commodity cycle. In May we saw a 10-15% drop in the price of gold and a correction in the price of oil. Throughout the summer the market recovered with oil reaching $75bbl. While gold stocks made up some of the loss, gold bullion did not. It stayed around $600 oz. Oil today is at $60 bbl. CNBC said on September 21, "With oil down 20%, the steep decline is even confounding the experts!" Is what we are seeing indeed confounding all the experts, or is it managed and manipulated to benefit a small group of powerful insiders?
Last week, we saw once again how Wall Street changes the minds of investors. For the last ten years or so, the gas guzzling SUV has been the premier choice of vehicles for most Americans. High oil prices put both General Motors and Ford at risk, as both companies announced drastic measures and big lay-offs last week. The Ford Company, in announcing they were not going to manufacture the SUV any longer said, "The North American business model does not work." In response to this information, a friend of mine, who just visited Italy, told me that she was surprised at the increase in the number of SUVs in Italy.
Why the huge drop in the price of oil? Wall Street would have us believe that it was the new oil reserve found in the Gulf, even though it will take 7-10 years to bring it on line. On 9/11, 2006 CNBC's Larry Kramer forecasted that oil will never go back to $75bbl, and that it is time to buy drug stocks. A little later that same day, we were told that the rise in gold and oil, which began 9/11/01, was over. The price of gas at the pump began to drop and, according to CNBC the next day, "Consumers are feeling better, more secure, and richer over lower energy." CNBC then went on to show SUV's and tell us, "Maybe it is time to buy an SUV."
The bottom line is that Wall Street and our central bank made a huge mistake by raising interest rates at the same time they increased the price of energy and they are back-peddling. What they found is that the power of the consumer to buy is gone. They are not able to put gas in their SUVs and they are not buying new ones. Furthermore, they cannot afford a new home which doubled in price as a result of 45 year low interest rates. In other words, there is a very high inventory of SUVs by all the auto dealers and home builders have at least one year of homes on the market.
Currently, gold is at $565 (9/21) and has lost over 22% in spite of the fact that the metal hit a 26 year high of $730 oz. in mid-May. Within the last two weeks, gold is down 10%, for a total drop of 20% year to date. According to one gold analyst, the central bankers began dumping gold on July 18 to keep it from rising as a result of the new Middle East War. They say that if gold had risen to $700 oz., oil would have exploded to $90bbl. Does any of this make sense? As a friend of mine would say, "What in the earth is going on?"
Perhaps, instead, we need to ask "Who is in control?" Are there natural forces that set the value of diamonds, gold, bonds, stocks, housing, farm land, etc., or are they manipulated to fill the coffers of powerful groups and individuals, as they skim off the top of the world's asset highs? This newsletter is not an excuse for the market but hopefully will educate you about forces behind the scene.
Having spent 25 years in this business and having covered 90 global meetings over the last 12-13 years, I have observed presidents, prime ministers, kings, princes, dukes, key officials from the various United Nations organizations, CEO's from some of the world's most powerful corporations, economists, and others.My research and observations have led me to determine that there are a number of powerful forces that rule the world, independent of government. In fact, government is getting weaker through privatization, as it spins off assets and sells them to corporations. Just recently, Norway overthrew their Democratic Socialist government so they can privatize more of their government assets! While I personally believe the British royal family rules the world, they do not rule it alone. There are at least three actors: central banks, the power and legacy of Cecil Rhodes, and the immense financial power of the biggest international banking family, the Rothschilds. When you consider all of these, you have a three-strand cord -- in other words, a strong cord that it will not break.
Central banks control the monetary system of the world and determine when business cycles are going to change simply by increasing or decreasing the money supply in the banking system. This small group of powerful insiders know when to sell high and buy low because they determine when the market cycle is going to change. What has just happened with oil and gold prices is an example of the power brokers who rule the world.
Cecil Rhodes was a British aristocrat who went down to South Africa to mine diamonds and ended up discovering gold. DeBeers Diamonds was the corporation that he founded as a result of the Anglo-Boer War. He also founded one of the largest gold companies in the world, Gold Fields.
Rhodes loved his mother country so much that he dedicated everything he had to setting up secret societies and college scholarships (Rhodes Scholars) for the furtherance of bringing the world under British rule. Rhodes said the British "are the finest race in the world and if the world were British, there would be no further wars." (Interestingly enough, he would have to wage war against all the independent nations of the world in order for "peace" to happen.) Working closely with Rhodes in helping to finance his quest to corner the diamond and gold markets and to carry out his final vision, was his banker, Nathaniel Rothschild of the British Rothschild banking family.
I make no claim to knowing everything. We are all entitled to our opinions. The following analysis is mine, based on years of extensive research both in regard to history and to the market. Consider:
When Rhodes died, he left a series of wills in which he wanted to set up a secret "society of the just", based on the Jesuit Society, to carry out his vision of a world united under British rule. Interestingly enough, he worked very closely with the British and French Rothschild families to finance the merger and consolidation of all the various South African diamond and gold concessions. One of his directives was to educate well selected men (and recently, women) from key colleges and universities from around the world, in the philosophy of bringing the world under British rule. These people are known as "Rhodes Scholars" and include former President Clinton and many others in government.
Regarding the power of central banks, if you will take a piece of paper money out of your wallet -- any denomination -- you will see these words, "Federal Reserve Note -- This note is legal tender for all debts, public and private." You might ask yourself why the paper money does not state that it is a note from the Treasury of the United States? If the Federal Reserve is not the Treasury, what is it? The Federal Reserve is a "central bank." To put it in every day terms, it is a private corporation which claims to provide a service to the people of the United States by providing the money used in our banking system.
