“There’s An Unholy Alliance Of Politicians And Bankers Versus Ordinary People”

28 Jun

Oh for independent politicians like Nigel Farage here in Australia:

One could almost be forgiven for thinking that Mr Farage was talking about Australian politicians like Malcolm Turnbull being in bed with banksters like Goldman Sachs, in seeking to impose a CO2 trading scam  – deceitfully relabelled as a “carbon tax – on our little nation.

Or, that he was talking about the recent Open Letter written by 13 “eminent” economists in support of our Green-Labor-“Independent” Alliance’s plan for “pricing carbon” – at least 77% of whom are directly employed by or connected with the bankstering sector.

    Ah yes.. but is Mr Farage game to take on the most nefarious institution of all, the Old Lady of Threadneedle Street, the Bank of England, which by the way, we don’t owe as much as a bent sixpence.

    I think it is beyond creepy, to use the gangland relationship between Banks and politicians in the US and Europe, particularly the UK and France, to challenge the Carbon-tax here in Australia.
    The 2 things are not related.

    We need to reduce carbon emissions and a carbon-tax is as good a way as any – the details of how much tax, to whom it is applied and compensations as needed, must be dealt with so we can move on to a more renewable based economy and energy sector.
    -see Germany for successful transition.

    The predatory arrangement between the US-Elite and Banking, Corporations and Politicians is another kettle of fish altogether and way bigger than the tiny minds on display in this neck of the woods.
    see the current illegal Robber-Baron attack on Libya.

      You are wrong. It is exactly the same kettle of fish.

      Global bankstering is just that. Global.

      There are myriad fully-sourced posts here (and elsewhere on the web) confirming that the drive for CO2 trading here in Australia is a result of exactly the same global bankster-driven forces as everywhere else in the world. If you have even a glimmer of capacity for open-mindedness, then I suggest you may wish to start with just these two:

      robina ,,,,

      Pity when we write on blogs we are not compelled to actually state our affiliations with certain groups or actually list our IQ …

      Have to laugh though when you referred to us as the tiny minds .. as I always remember the definition of a narrow minded person..

      “This is a mentality that is often associated with cliques and coteries. A narrow-minded person will even accuse someone of being “stupid” or ((name some other bad trait here, even “narrow-minded” itself!)) the other person who expresses a viewpoint or reason for believing otherwise than the narrow-minded one’s views. Or, in some cases, a narrow-minded person might even go to the extreme of primate-like behavior, such as throwing food or insults at the other person, because the narrow-minded one doesn’t have a cohesive argument to counteract what the other had said in the discussion or debate.

      Interesting thing: people who accuse others of being narrow-minded are often quite narrow-minded themselves. ”


      Me thinks I enjoyed posting that. I will slap myself later for such flippancy on a public blog.

      Oh and B.I. have received Morgan Gretchenson’s latest book ‘Reckless Endangerment’ from Amazon.

    Something you may, or may not, find interesting;


    Nigel Farage shows his true colors here, refer to my post at top. When the plebs get restless in Greece he calls it a tragedy, a result of corruption but when the plebs get restless at home he calls for the army to crush all dissent.

    The man is a class A scumbag & probably a closet fascist. He is the Bank of England’s man, posing as a libertarian in the European parliament.

      Very interesting JMD.

      Quick question: is your reason for stating that he is “a class A scumbag & probably a closet fascist” purely a result of his comments here, vis-a-vis invoking martial law? Or, are there other confirmatory evidences?

      Please, don’t misunderstand the question as my defending him. I’m simply curious. I have no opinion, as I know nothing about him – have only ever seen this video of him, + 1 other giving a couple min. speech in the EU parliament.

      Just FWIW, I personally would not automatically presume someone to be a fascist etc solely on basis of their calling for the army to hit the streets under those circumstances. Again, I’m not giving an opinion on the pros/cons of that either, one way or another – simply pointing out that I could understand why any politician in those circumstances might voice such sentiments. I imagine many citizens voice the same thing. To me, the deeper and more important issue is understanding how things get to the state where rioting breaks out, in order to understand what’s needed to avoid it happening in future. What is done now to address the immediate problem is a separate issue, in my view.

      Basically, to form an opinion on whether this particular pollie is as you describe … and for all I know you may well be right! … I’d need more information 😉

      For example, is it remotely possible that he can be taken at his word here? –

      “My instincts are always libertarian, my instincts are always let people get on and live their lives. This is one of those rare circumstances where the innocent genuinely need some protection and I think if there are soldiers on the streets….”

      Again, I’m not taking any position, as I don’t have anywhere near enough knowledge of the man 😉

      • JMD August 11, 2011 at 6:23 pm #

        No. A true libertarian would have been calling bulls**t on the Bank of England at the first opportunity.

        While the looting & burning itself probably is mindless, it’s not for no reason. To say the trouble in Greece is due to a corrupt & bankrupt government but the trouble in the UK is just hooliganism, is hypocrisy of the highest magnitude. Remember the UK government is presently engaged in destroying the lives & property of people in several middle eastern countries… who’s the real thug? It is also well past bankrupt.

        He is the Bank of England’s man, which is close enough to a fascist & a scumbag.

          “A true libertarian would have been calling bulls**t on the Bank of England at the first opportunity.”

          Fair call JMD. Touché.

    Here’s an interesting article;


    The UK government is squeezing the people with higher taxes & slashing spending (’cause we’re skint gov) yet blowing billions on war & of course the BoE is handing out the Pounds to the banks at almost par (to the bankers worthless paper).

    S**t man, I’d be rioting too. Oh wait… I probably will be, since it is on its way here. Note the gold price in AUD over the last couple of weeks. The Pound has been massively devalued over the last couple of years. It weren’t for nothing I commented on the gold price moving over 1000 pounds a week or so ago.

      You’re dead on JMD … I saw that piece too, at some ungodly hour last night.

    Markedly well written blog

    Hi! I could have sworn I’ve been to this blog before but after reading through some of the post I realized it’s new to me.

    Anyhow, I’m definitely delighted I found it and I’ll be book-marking and checking back frequently!
