Benjamin Fulford: Financial power struggle intensifies as IMF head criminally charged immediately after IMF announces reforms [full report]

The International Monetary Fund last week made a big push to position its SDR currency as a replacement for the US dollar. The US Congress finally (after 5 years foot-dragging) approved IMF voting reform, diluting G7 power, after which the organization announced it was doubling its money to 477 billion SDR (US$660 billion) from 238 billion SDR (about $330 billion).

Somebody apparently was not pleased because, immediately after this announcement, French police pressed criminal charges against IMF head Christine Lagarde.

The last IMF head, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, was arrested on trumped up rape charges and dismissed from office when he tried to push the SDR as a US dollar replacement. The CIA was behind that operation, according to CIA sources. Let us see if Lagarde does any better.

Another sign the US dollar and the people who control it are involved in high level financial warfare was the rate hike announced by the US Federal Reserve Board last week. The official reason for the rate hike, a strong US economy, was a bold faced lie as all real economic indicators show the US economy remains in a tailspin. Furthermore, this rate hike will have the effect of taking money from small banks who lend to real businesses to the big banks who control the Fed and whose main business is gambling. The real reason for this rate hike was to protect the no-longer American US Dollar, not the US economy. In any case, the rate hike was a failure in that the dollar fell instead of rising. Long term interest rates also fell, meaning the market expects deflation and not the supposed inflation the rate hike was supposed to stop.

The US government finally agreeing to dilute its power at the IMF while the Fed raises interest rates are probably connected to US corporate government efforts to stave off bankruptcy. In other words, as a condition for additional funding, the US was forced to hand over de facto control of the IMF and pay more interest to foreigners who own US dollars.

The fact the US sent B52 bombers over Chinese territory last week was also almost certainly connected to high level, secret, negotiations to keep the US corporate government afloat. Essentially, the Americans were yet again using their nuclear war card to try to get a better deal.

Another sign something fundamental has changed is the fact the US government has done a 180 degree about turn in its policy towards Syria last week by supporting a UN resolution that does not call for the ouster of Syrian President Bashar Assad.

The US and Israel, until now often condemned at the UN by the rest of the world, have shown signs of regime change by voting for

a unanimous UN resolution aimed at cutting off ISIS finances. This resolution targets the family of Turkish President Erdogan, the Kurdish Barzani family, the Bush crime family, Israel, Exxon, BP and others. As a Pentagon official put it “it is poetic justice that this unanimous UN vote was chaired by US Treasury Secretary Jack Lew, an orthodox Jew.”
The latest US Defense Intelligence Department intelligence also reveals the Bushes and their neo-con buddies have been shipping oil tanker trucks, pickup trucks and other equipment to ISIS from Houston, Texas, Pentagon sources say. The trucks are being modified in Israel and then are sent to the war zone via Turkey and Jordan, they say.

Pentagon generals and rank and file are also becoming increasingly suspicious of US Defense Secretary Ashton Carter. Carter was in Turkey recently where he ordered an airstrike in Iraq that killed 25 Iraqi soldiers, the sources say. Carter ordered the attack as punishment for the Iraqis after they refused an offer by him to send special operations troops and Apache helicopters. US special forces were also recently refused entry in Libya, indicating a growing international distrust in their leadership.

The Pentagon officials say Carter’s use of personal e-mails for Department of Defense business may be used as a reason to remove him from office. This is the same thing Hillary Clinton has been under attack for.

In any case, Turkey’s Erdogan has apparently blinked after seeing his Israeli and US allies lose power one by one. Last week Turkey succumbed to universal international pressure and withdrew the troops it has sent into Iraq.
The other Middle Eastern rogue state, Saudi Arabia, continues to struggle desperately for survival. As a part of this, the Saudi government last week announced a 34 nation alliance “against terrorism.” Unfortunately for the Ibn Saud crime family, the most important nations in this so-called coalition denied being a part of it. Pakistan, the only nuclear armed
Islamic State, openly denied Saudi claims they were allies.

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/saudi-arabia-announces-34-strong-coalition-of-muslim-nations-to-fight-terrorism-but-two-countries-a6779186.html

Indonesia and Malaysia, two other major Islamic powers, are also not planning to militarily support the Saudi regime.
Leaders in most genuine Muslim countries are fully aware the Saudi royal family are not really Muslims but rather members of the Satan worshipping Khazarian mafia.

With oil prices dropping to $30 a barrel and with hedges made at $70 a barrel starting to expire, the Saudis will soon no longer be able to afford the mercenary armies that are keeping them in power. This in turn will affect the big banks like Citibank that rely on recycling Saudi oil money for a large part of their business. Big bankruptcies are expected in January and February in connection with all this.

There are also a series of moves being made against the Khazarian mafia inside the United States. Sheldon Adelson and Rupert Murdoch, to major Khazarin power brokers, have been shown to be using corporate control of the media to tell lies and distort court cases. The New York Times has also been caught deleting important news from its pages.

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-12-18/new-york-times-just-memory-holed-devastating-obama-admission
These revelations all coming out in one week are a sign of a rebellion against corporate distortion of news.
Khazarian attempts to centralize corporate control are also coming under closer scrutiny. For example, a US Justice Department Investigation of the recent attempt by the two chemical giants Dow and Dupont to merge has revealed that Vanguard is the #1 shareholder in both and that another Khazarian front, Blackrock, is also involved. This monopoly creating move is not expected to be approved.

The Chinese also acted to prevent the widely hated Monsanto Corporation, and its Goldman Sachs banker, from getting a monopoly on world food supply by having Chemchina buy the Swiss Agribusiness Syngenta.

Meanwhile on the Russian front, further confirmation came out last week that Vladimir Putin is not exactly real. A Russian FSB agent affiliated with the White Dragon Society, whose company protects Russian oligarchs, has said Putin is just a series of look-alikes who read scripts and pretend to be a powerful leader. The real leader of Russia is now said to be Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov. Take a look at these pictures of Lavrov and “Putin” and see for yourself which of the two men appears to be in charge:

Then, to confirm the Russian genome has produced plenty of Putin look-alikes, take a look at the photos of “Putin,” one dating from 1920, another from 1941 and another from 2015 here:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3361468/Evidence-suggests-Vladimir-Putin-immortal-thanks-Russians-discovering-secret-time-travel.html

The Russians use “Putin” as a symbol of their unified leadership but make no mistake, Russian unity is not dependent on a single, killable, charismatic leader.

Speaking about charismatic leaders, Canada’s new Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is shaping up to be one. His multi-ethnic rainbow cabinet and his call for legalization of marijuana have raised high hopes for his government in Canada. Everybody this writer met there hoped and wished for the best with his new government.
However, during a visit to Canada last week, a member of Canada’s Security Intelligence Service contacted this writer with information about his father Pierre Trudeau. According to this CSIS source, Pierre Trudeau was blackmailed with pedophile charges into ending the use of government owned Bank of Canada money to finance government operations without taxes or debt. Instead, he forced Canada into Babylonian style debt slavery to Khazarian mafia banks. Pedophilia allegations aside, it is a known fact that it was Trudeau who ended the use of Bank of Canada free money to finance the government.

Let us see if Justin will turn out to be just a feel good, look nice stooge or if he will undo his father’s crime. If he fails to return the Bank of Canada to its original mandate then you can be sure there are members of the Canadian public as well as the police and intelligences services who will make him accountable.

On a final note, it is clear that world trade and markets are not functioning properly now, as oil tankers float around with nowhere to go and as world trade continues to plummet while markets tumble.

Japanese businessmen with extensive operations in China say China’s economy is also in worse shape than government figures show.

Some sort of systemic collapse is taking place in slow motion. This will not happen overnight but, as in the fall of the Soviet Union, looking back it will seem as if an entire politico-economic system collapsed almost instantly. In this case Babylonian debt slavery and mind-control based government (govern=control, ment=mind) will collapse.

Benjamin Fulford: Will the revolution finally come this autumn?

There are growing signs that world events will be allowed to simmer away until this autumn when there may finally be revolution in the West and an end to cabal rule. In fact, it is the moral duty of all aware people to make sure this happens and the West is freed from Babylonian style debt slavery.

The most likely trigger for the revolution is now expected to be Greece. The latest news on that front is that Greece will “bundle” June payments to the IMF. What this means, according to British MI5 intelligence, is that “if Greece bundles it’s June payments, it defaults to the IMF in early July, this will be reported by the IMF Managing Director after 30 more days followed by some 3-4 weeks of procedural talks inside the IMF.” In other words the crunch will come in September.

The fact is the Western banking system, notably the mega-banks, are already bankrupt. They are bankrupt based on the simple fact that, as a whole, Western countries have been importing from the rest of the world, mainly Asia, for the past 30 years using their credit card and the card has maxed out. The Western banks have been pretending this is not the case by creating hundreds of trillions of dollars’ worth of derivatives. These derivatives have very tenuous links to real world things such as Greek people’s income so, something like a Greek default would be enough to send the system into terminal tailspin.

The recent statements from Greek government officials make it very clear they will no longer squeeze Greek citizens to help cabal banks. Here is what the Greek speaker of the House Zoe Konstantopoulou had to say about the debt:

“There is strong evidence on the illegitimacy, odiousness and unsustainability of a large part of what is purported to be the Greek public debt.”

http://blogs.channel4.com/paul-mason-blog/greeces-syriza-party-sticking-script-imf-deal/3717

Getting the Greek government to abandon the EU, join the BRICS bank and accept money from Russia might be the strategy that ends cabal control in Europe. The Greeks have a historical chance to restore Democracy, their invention, to the West. We should find out this autumn.

High level Indonesian government sources meanwhile, contacted the White Dragon Society to inform them that the main gold depository in Indonesia was located inside a military base less than a kilometer from the US embassy in Jakarta. The exact amount of gold was not disclosed but the sources said it was “more than 100,000 tons.” They say the gold bunkers will be opened in……….

remainder of report will be published on Thursday.

Tom Heneghan: Alice Remains in Derivative Land and the Bankers Have NO Clothes

Alice Remains in Derivative Land and the Bankers Have NO Clothes

by Tom Heneghan, International Intelligence Expert




UNITED States of America   –   It can now be reported that Greek banks face a serious liquidity crisis as depositors withdrew up to 4.2 billion euros over the last 72 hours.

Greece will leave the European Union Sunday night, January 25th, meaning that Greece will default on 70 trillion in euro currency in cross-collateralized derivatives tied to JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America and Saudi owned U.S. Citibank, along with the Central Bank of Japan.

Today the ECB (European Central Bank), the Central Bank of Japan and the U.S. Federal Reserve issued 70 trillion (laugh out loud) of cross-collateralized foreign currency derivatives (there is no real cash or margin) all designed to absorb the shock of the Greece default.

The central bankers are now playing high stakes-high wire finance; when backed into a corner here comes the ‘BAIL-IN’.

P.S. The alleged ECB stimulus program (another Central Bank ponzi scheme) does not begin until March. There is no mention of the specific European banks that will buy bonds and it is likely that Jens Weidmann, head of the German Bundesbank, will sabotage ECB before we even see March 1st.

At this hour there is no real cash left in the financial markets. There are just computer algorithms and cross-collateralized derivatives masquerading as assets when they are nothing more that I.O.U.s between crooked banks.

They call those credit default swaps (CDS).

In closing, as Ukraine is about to financially collapse aka a default on the IMF (International Monetary Fund), expect the Russian Federation to annex the entire province within days.

Stay tuned for future intelligence briefings in which we will detail the latest U.S. coup d’ etat in Yemen, which was nothing more than an obstruction of justice effort to protect the Saudi financed-Israeli Mossad operated Yemen government that was headquarters for the Pegasus Unit crisis actor terrorists.

Here is a recent reply by Benjamin Fulford to a questioner re the ‘global elite’

Hi Shahji,
The global elite are not a monolith. They had a big split in 2000 between two big factions. One was the Nazionist (Nazi/Zionist) group that wanted to kill 90% of humanity and enslave the rest in order to “save the environment,” and create a race of supermen (themselves) to rule over the sheeple. The other group, let us call them the Warmists, wanted to use fraudulent global warming as an excuse to create a global tax and world government and use part of the tax to preserve forests and nature.
The Warmists lost to the murder threats of the Nazionists in 2000 when George W. Bush was fraudulently elected.
Then an Asian secret society, having eavesdropped a Bohemian Grove Nazionist meeting, learned about the plans to kill the 90% and decided to try to stop them. They eventually managed to convince the Warmist faction to work with them. Some of them thought that adjusting current institutions like the IMF, World Bank etc. would be enough. However, the Nazionists refused to even share any power hence the need to work together to overthrow them. That is why a financial war, assassinations, use of earthquake weapons etc. have been going on for some years now.
The old generation families like the Rockefellers will have to step aside and allow a totally new paradigm for this planet to emerge. Some of them meant well but the state of the planet tells us they need to stand down now and allow a new age or new era (but not a New World Order) to begin.
The fact is we all share this fragile planet, breathe the same air and use the same water so there are some things we all need to do together if we are to build a better, happier future for humanity and all living creatures.
