Blessed John Felton

Martyrdate and place of birth unknown, wasexecuted in St. Paul's Churchyard, London, 8 August, 1570, for having, about eleven o'clock at night on the previous 24 May, affixed a copy of the Bull of St. Pius V excommunicating the queen to the gates of theBishop of London's palace near St. Paul's. His daughter, Frances Salisbury, says that this exploit actually took place between two and three on the morning of the next day, on which that year the feastof Corpus Christi happened to fall. The manuscriptwhich preserves- her narrative contains a blank where the age of her father should be recorded, but she gives us other particulars fully. He was a wealthygentleman of Norfolk extraction, and lived at Bermondsey Abbey near Southwark. He had marrieda lady who had been maid of honour to Queen Maryand playmate of Queen Elizabeth, and who was thewidow of an auditor of the former queen. He himself "was a man of stature little and of complexion black". Of the copies of the Bull which he had received atCalais he had given one to William Mellowes ofLincoln's Inn, a special friend of his. This copy was discovered on 25 May, and Mellowes on the rackconfessed to having received it from him. On 26 May he was arrested and taken to the Tower, where he was thrice racked, though he from the first confessedand gloried in his deed. He was condemned on 4 August and executed four days later. He was cut down alive, and his daughter says that he uttered theholy name of Jesus once or twice when the hangman had his heart in his hand.

This week, President Obama makes his first state visit to China. What kind of country will he find there? We tend to imagine China as a monolith: 1.3 billion people sharing the same language, history, and culture. The truth is far more interesting. China is a mosaic of several distinct regions, each with its own resources, dynamics, and historical character.
As a traveler, teacher, and professional investor who has been exploring China since 1986, I’ve come to think of these regions as the Nine Nations of China (inspired, in part, by Joel Garreau’s Nine Nations of North America). Taken individually, these “nations” would account for eight of the 20 most populous countries in the world.
As China’s economy becomes more integrated, these regional differences are taking on greater importance than ever before. Each of the Nine Nations faces a unique set of challenges and opportunities in carving out its own competitive niche. Anyone who wants to do business in China, make policy towards China, or simply comprehend the dramatic changes happening there should understand the Nine Nations and the role each of them is playing in shaping China’s future.

THE YELLOW LAND(Beijing, Tianjin, Shandong, Hebei, Henan, Shanxi, Shaanxi)
Territory: 906,243 km2 (9% of total)
Population: 359 million (27% of total)
Per Capital GDP: $3,855
Exports as % of GDP: 16%

China was born on the banks of the Yellow River, where the silt-laden water, rich alluvial soil, and the harvested wheat all share the same yellow hue. This is China’s breadbasket where buns, dumplings, and noodles, rather than rice, are standard fare. But the fertile Yellow Land is vulnerable to droughts and floods, as well as jealous invaders. Since ancient times, its inhabitants have turned to a strong central government to keep them safe behind high walls and embankments. In ancient times, the emperor’s yellow robes symbolized his absolute command over the natural forces—earth, water, grain—that ensure life.

Ruling the Yellow Land is a delicate balancing act. On its own, the Yellow Land would rank as the second most populous nation on earth, with more people than the United States packed into less than one tenth the territory. Its resources, while plentiful, are stretched to the limit. The Yellow Land produces huge quantities of basic staples like wheat, cotton, and peanuts, but is rapidly running short of water. It has rich energy reserves, but over-dependence on coal accounts for some of the world’s worst air pollution.

One resource this “nation” never lacks is clout. For most of China’s history, the Yellow Land has been the center of political power. It can attract talent on a massive scale, giving it immense influence. China’s leaders hope these advantages can turn Beijing into a high-tech research hub and transform a select handful of state-sponsored companies like Lenovo and Haier into “national champions” that can dominate global markets. But the heavy hand of the government can be stifling here. Can the Yellow Land leverage its power to open up new opportunities? Or will a region that fears innovation inevitably fall behind?

THE BACK DOOR(Hong Kong, Macau, Guangdong, Hainan)
Territory: 231,963 km2 (2% of total)
Population: 112 million (8% of total)
Per Capita GDP: $6,910
Exports as % of GDP: 82%

In Chinese, the “back door” refers to a way of doing business outside the normal, approved channels. The South Sea coast is China’s Back Door, far enough from the centers of power that nobody will notice if you bend a few rules. As locals put it, “The sky is broad and the emperor is far away.” Officials who were exiled to Yueh, as this land was once known, found it a fearful place whose inhabitants spoke strange dialects—Cantonese, mainly—and feasted on snakes, cats, and monkeys. But its clan-based villages, lush jungles, and rocky inlets offered ideal shelter for smugglers and secret societies to flourish. Unlike their staid northern cousins, these freebooters learned to take risks and profit from them. Other Chinese regard southerners as clever, sharp, and a bit slippery. But as rebels and renegades, emigrants and entrepreneurs, they infuse much needed flexibility and creativity into an otherwise rigid system.

The Back Door might be troublesome to China’s rulers, but it has also been useful. When China was closed to the outside world, enclaves like Canton, Macau, and Hong Kong offered safely removed points of contact and exchange. So when Deng Xiaoping wanted to open China’s economy to trade and investment, the Back Door offered an ideal laboratory. If reforms failed, they could be disowned and contained without contaminating the rest of China. In fact, they succeeded beyond anyone’s wildest expectations, transforming the region into an export juggernaut and a model for the rest of China.

The Back Door’s very success, however, poses a dilemma. Now that the rest of China has applied its example, is a laboratory really necessary? The region may have found a new purpose as a playground for Chinese tourists who gamble in Macau’s casinos, frolic at Hainan’s beach resorts, and ride the rides at Hong Kong’s new Disneyland. But there are others who think the experiment isn’t over, that the Back Door still has vital lessons to teach about democracy and rule of law. Perhaps China still needs a few rebels—at a safe distance, of course.

(Shanghai, Jiangsu, Zhejiang)

Population: 147 million (11% of total)
Per Capita GDP: $6,406
Exports as % of GDP: 58%

Sleek, stylish, confident—Shanghai certainly makes an impression. Its steel skyscrapers look like rocket ships ready to blast off into the future, taking China along with it. Shanghai is a very young city by Chinese standards, but the Yangtze River delta—known in ancient times as the kingdom of Wu—has always been the most commercial and cosmopolitan part of China. Like the Low Countries at the mouth of the Rhine, it is a flat watery land crisscrossed by busy canals linking a constellation of trading cities. The Back Door may succeed in breaking the rules, but only the Metropolis has the wealth and dynamism to entirely reshape them. Its treasure fleets nearly discovered Europe a century before Columbus sailed, and of the Nine Nations, it is the only one to have displaced the Yellow Land—several times—as China’s political capital.

The Metropolis likes to see itself as China’s bright and beckoning future, but the feelings it stirs in other parts of China are decidedly mixed. While its residents see themselves as adaptable and forward-thinking, to many Chinese they come across as arrogant city-slickers—cliquish, crassly materialistic, and slavishly eager to mimic foreign ways. Shanghai had a pre-war reputation as a neon-lit version of Sodom and Gomorrah, and when China was “Red,” the Metropolis paid dearly for its “Black” capitalist past. Consigned to purgatory for over 40 years, the region bore the brunt of the Cultural Revolution and was starved for development funds—essentially frozen in time—until the early 1990s.

The rebirth of the Metropolis did not take place on its own terms. It was the result of a political decision, made in Beijing, to transform the region into a carefully designed showcase of what China could achieve. The state has poured tremendous resources into industrial parks, infrastructure, and Shanghai’s glittering new financial district, attracting huge amounts of foreign direct investment. But this subsidized, scale-driven growth model—where bigger is always better—makes for an economy dangerously prone to speculation. The best hope for the Metropolis lies not in ever-greater capacity and ever-taller buildings but in smaller, nimbler, entrepreneurial enterprises that draw on the region’s distinctive flair for marketing, design, and fashion.

THE REFUGE(Sichuan, Chongqing)
Territory: 569,800 km2 (6% of total)
Population: 110 million (8% of total)
Per Capita GDP: $2,303
Exports as % of GDP: 5%

Tucked deep in China’s interior, Sichuan is a rich agricultural basin the size of France, surrounded on all sides by a ring of nearly impassible mountains. These bamboo-covered slopes are home to the panda, its last refuge from a rapidly encroaching world. For man as well as beast, Sichuan has always been China's place of refuge. Throughout history it has served as a secure supply base for China’s rulers, and a place to retreat and regroup in times of invasion and unrest. In World War II, when Japan occupied all of coastal China, loyalist forces relocated their capital to the Refuge to carry on the fight. During the Cold War, vital industries were purposely located in its remote valleys to protect them from the enemy.

The Refuge is able to perform such a strategic role because it is virtually self-sufficient. The ancient lands of Shu (centered on Chengdu, to the west) and Ba (to the east, around Chongqing) have been blessed with every ingredient essential to Chinese life—rice, wheat, silk, tea, salt, iron, pork. Safe like a tortoise in its shell, the population here prefers a relaxed way of life, composing poetry in teahouses or savoring the region’s famously spicy food. This splendid isolation has a downside: the region attracts little foreign trade and investment—before last year’s devastating earthquake put Sichuan in the headlines, most people outside of China were hardly aware it existed. Brain drain is another chronic problem: the region’s most talented and motivated young people tend to leave, seeking better opportunities elsewhere.

Today, the barriers that have insulated the Refuge are breaking down. New ports, highways, and pipelines are connecting Sichuan to a wider marketplace, giving rise to promising new industries like natural gas, snack foods, and motorcycles, but also posing new challenges to the region’s sheltered way of life. How its people adapt to these changes will determine whether the Refuge prospers or becomes, like the panda, an endangered species.

THE CROSSROADS(Anhui, Jiangxi, Hubei, Hunan)
Territory: 707,124 km2 (7% of total)
Population: 226 million (17% of total)
Per Capita GDP: $2,402
Exports as % of GDP: 6%

All of the dynamics driving the first four nations converge in the Crossroads. The middle stretch of the Yangtze is a natural transportation and communications nexus. It is the heart of China, pumping the lifeblood of men and material to every other part along capillaries of water, road, and rail. Interrupt this heartbeat—as a freak snowstorm did last year when it hit the Crossroads during Lunar New Year—and the entire country can grind to a halt. But the region’s central strategic position has never translated into political power. Instead, it has always been a zone of competition among its stronger neighbors, a place for their rival armies to march and fight.

The wetlands along the Yangtze and its tributaries supply much of China's rice, fish and fowl, and the surrounding hills are rich in orchards above ground and minerals below. But nearly all of its resources—the electricity generated by the Three Gorge Dam, the copper mined to make electrical wiring—flow outward to fuel China’s more developed coastal provinces. The most important outflow is human. Along with the Refuge, the Crossroads supplies the vast majority of China’s migrant workers, a floating population of 150 million people.

Standing in the crosscurrents of so many comings and goings, the Crossroads functions not only as China’s physical heart but as its emotional heartland as well. When migrants return home, they bring back ideas and experiences from every part of China, which mix and recirculate through the entire body. It helps that the inhabitants of Chu—as the Crossroads was called in ancient times—have long been known for their strong passions and fierce loyalties. It is no coincidence that the popular uprisings that began both the Nationalist and Communist revolutions happened here, or that many of China’s leading reformists and revolutionaries, including Mao, rank among its native sons. But while many things begin in the Crossroads, few ever reach their fruition there.

SHANGRI-LA(Yunnan, Guizhou, Guangxi)
Territory: 810,690 km2 (8% of total)
Population: 132 million (10% of total) * 30% non-Han minorities
Per Capita GDP: $1,770
Exports as % of GDP: 6%

The legend of Shangri-La tells of an isolated valley high in the Himalayas, where paradise exists on earth. Local tourism officials claim to have located the real Shangri-La in southwest China, and millions of visitors every year seem to agree. This land is home to some of China’s most iconic and inspiring landscapes: emerald rice terraces, the fairy mountains of Guilin, the raging rapids of Tiger Leaping Gorge. It’s also home to a kaleidoscope of ethnic minorities, usually depicted as singing and dancing in colorful tribal costumes. Throw in a clear blue sky and some banana pancakes, and Shangri-La makes for a heavenly vacation.

Behind the postcard-perfect images, however, lies a darker reality. Cut off from the outside world by jagged mountains and primitive infrastructure, Shangri-La is the poorest of the Nine Nations. Before the Revolution, the region’s main cash crop was opium. Its replacement, tobacco, turned Shangri-La into the main supplier for China’s latest deadly addiction: cigarettes. Meanwhile, Shangri-La still borders Burma’s infamous Golden Triangle, making it China’s primary gateway for illicit drugs and the accompanying spread of HIV/AIDS, which the region’s overburdened health care system is unequipped to handle. The other mainstays of the local economy—logging, strip mining, and land-intensive crops such as sugarcane and rubber—have taken a heavy toll on the environment. All in all, hardly an image of paradise.

Despite these grave problems, Shangri-La possesses untapped resources. Its forests are home to over half of China’s birds and mammals, as well as thousands of rare plant species, some of which may hold the key to new medicines. The region’s lush hills and valleys—the original birthplace of tea—offer ideal conditions for growing tropical fruits, coffee, and flowers. The great lifelines of East Asia—the Yangtze, Salween, Irrawaddy, Mekong, and Red Rivers—all originate in Shangri-La, ensuring a plentiful supply of water for consumption and hydropower. New transport links are being built to expand China’s burgeoning trade with its ASEAN neighbors. None of these opportunities comes without challenges. But for long-suffering Shangri-La, each step closer to heaven is one step farther from hell.

THE RUST BELT(Liaoning, Jilin, Heilongjiang)
Territory: 801,553 km2 (8% of total)
Population: 109 million (8% of total)
Per Capita GDP: $3,724
Exports as % of GDP: 15%

Just over a century ago, northeast China—known to the outside world as Manchuria—was a wilderness of dark forests and frigid snow-swept plains. Its only inhabitants were a few hunting and fishing tribes. The foremost of these was the Manchu, which conquered and ruled China as its last imperial dynasty. The arrival of the Trans-Siberian Railroad in 1898 changed everything, unleashing a flood of migrants and pitting Russia against Japan in a battle to dominate the region. The Japanese prevailed, and in 1931, they made Manchuria part of their empire. They introduced industrial-scale farming and built mines, steel mills, and factories.

After the war, the Northeast (Dongbei in Chinese) was the first of the Nine Nations captured by the Communists, and the region became a bastion of state-owned heavy industry. Its workers were the socialist elite, enjoying cradle-to-grave benefits and an “iron rice bowl”—jobs guaranteed for life. But in the 1990s, market reform cut the legs out from under the planned economy. Obsolete, inefficient factories were forced to close, throwing 30 million blue-collar workers out in the cold. Once-proud Dongbeibecame the Chinese version of Flint, Michigan: a Rust Belt of decaying industries with no future.

The central government has launched a campaign to “Revive the Northeast,” but it will take more than ambitious blueprints to bring the Rust Belt back to life. The prospect of an implosion in neighboring North Korea is just one of many uncertainties clouding the region’s future. But the people here are survivors. Famous for their rustic manners and boisterous camaraderie—washed down with 120-proof grain alcohol—they embody the fiery spirit of the Dongbeihu, the Siberian tiger. Adapting that spirit to the 21st Century will require new ways of thinking. The port city of Dalian, for instance, is emerging as a business process outsourcing center aimed at the Japanese market. If Rust Belt residents notice the irony of inviting Japanese investors back to revive their former colony, they’re not saying it out loud.

THE FRONTIER(Inner Mongolia, Ningxia, Gansu, Qinghai, Xinjiang, Tibet)
Territory: 5,205,114 km2 (54% of total)
Population: 86 million (6% of total)  * 30% non-Han minorities
Per Capita GDP: $2,928
Exports as % of GDP: 9%

The land beyond the Great Wall has long captivated the Chinese with its aura of danger and romance. Wild Mongol horsemen, silk-laden caravans, and the inaccessible mysteries of Tibet offer a thrilling contrast to the regulated confines of Chinese life. But what really set this region apart are its vast open spaces. The Frontier comprises over half of China’s territory and just 6 percent of its population—a landmass and population density similar to the continental United States west of the Mississippi. Its desolate plateaus, scorching deserts, and snow-capped mountains resemble Nevada or Wyoming more than Beijing.

China’s frontier with Inner Asia has always had enormous strategic significance. For centuries, its overland caravan routes—the famous Silk Road—provided China’s richest trade link to the outside world, while its marauding nomads posed an ever-present threat to the Middle Kingdom. To secure control, China developed an extensive network of military colonies and prison work camps, not unlike Siberia’s gulag archipelago. The region’s trackless wastes hide many of China’s most sensitive military facilities. But the Frontier’s greatest strategic value lies in its largely untapped natural resources: oil and gas from the Tarim Basin and neighboring Central Asia; rich veins of nickel, copper, and coal; dairy and wind farms on the vast open grasslands; and vineyards that may someday produce world-class wines.

The key to unlocking these resources is the railroad. By bringing in settlers and connecting them with markets back east, the railroad is transforming China’s frontier beyond recognition. But like America’s Manifest Destiny, China’s “Go West” has a dark side. The natives of China’s frontier—the Mongols, Tibetans, and Muslim Uighurs—see their land and ways of life being swept away by a flood of Han Chinese immigrants. When their anger boils over into violence, as it did last year in Lhasa and this summer in Urumqi, the response is invariably swift and brutal. China’s West is being won, but what will be lost in the process?

THE STRAITS(Fujian, Taiwan)
Territory: 160,313 km2 (2% of total)
Population: 59 million (4% of total)
Per Capita GDP: $9,432
Exports as % of GDP: 30%

The 110-mile strait separating Taiwan from China's mainland is one of the world's great flashpoints. So it may seem surprising that the two provinces on either side comprise a single “nation.” In fact, Fujian and Taiwan are like twins separated at birth—linked by heritage, divided by destiny. Fujian has always looked to the sea. Like the ancient Greeks, its inhabitants turned their backs on their rocky soil, venturing out to fish and trade with distant shores. They established colonies all over Southeast Asia, a far-flung network based on dialect and kinship that thrives to this day. Since such voyages were often prohibited by the emperor, the region’s mariners became skilled smugglers. Today, Fujian remains the center of a worldwide traffic in smuggled Chinese immigrants.

For centuries, Chinese seafarers largely ignored Taiwan, whose fetid rainforests seemed to harbor little more than headhunters and pirate lairs. But a major rebellion persuaded Chinese officials to annex the island in 1683. Settlers from Fujian cleared the jungle to plant rice, sugar, and tea in the fertile volcanic soil, bringing their Min dialect and their worship of Matsu, goddess of the sea. But unity with China was not to last. In 1895, a resource-hungry Japan seized Taiwan as a colony. It was returned after the World War II, only to be cut off once again by the tides of revolution.

The Cold War is over, but the Straits remain divided, perhaps more than ever before. Recent democratic reforms have awakened a new sense of identity among the Taiwanese, many of whom desire complete independence. China has made it clear that such a move would mean a war. But China’s efforts to attract Taiwanese investment, to Fujian in particular, have not gone unrewarded. The Straits may be the smallest of the Nine Nations, but this region is the richest in China, and its two economies have grown increasingly intertwined. Like magnets, Fujian and Taiwan alternately attract and repel each other, pulled together by economic opportunity, pushed apart by identity and ideology. Which of these trends will prevail remains to be seen, but the answer will have a profound impact on China’s future.

When I first looked into the HKMEx I was mainly looking to see if silver manipulators JP Morgan, Goldman or HSBC were involved. The good news, I did not see that they had any controlling or operational influence in the HKMEx. The worst thing I guess I found out of the list of board members was President Albert Helmig was a former VP of the NYMEX. The amount of information on the rest of the board is limited most likely because they are Chinese and English Google is limited. I then looked a little further to see who was paying the board.

I have been watching the emergence of the Hong Kong Mercantile Exchange with great interest. I recognize the importance of China establishing this new market that now not only trades Gold and Silver, but eventually Food and Oil. The ability to trade these commodities in both Dollars and Renminbi is a huge step in creating a regional, if not global, reserve currency. The historical significance of this new exchange in the sea change in wealth and power from the Anglo American empire to Asia, is completely missing in today’s media.
Two years ago in the Sons of Liberty Academy, I speculated about the rise of the anti-Hegemon challenging the power of the Anglo American Empire that has dominated the world for the past few centuries. The anti-Hegemon is a union of nations that has fallen victim to, or not benefited from, the Anglo American paradigm. The core of this group includes China, Russia, Iran and Venezuela, but many other nations are learning that there is much to gain from the power vacuum left in the collapse of the dollar. Nations like Brazil, India, Pakistan and South Africa have become closer to the core anti-Hegemon. Even nations that are supposed allies of the Anglo American empire, like France, occupied Germany and occupied Japan have much to gain from getting out of the shadow of the Anglo American empire.
“The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.” -Sun Tzu
The anti-Hegemon has been most wise not to go head-to-head with the mortally wounded beast of the American Empire. They see the mathematical inevitability of the dollar collapsing. Without a functioning currency, America cannot control its global empire. With each trade agreement and exchange that is opened outside the Anglo American empire, the beast is wounded further. China has amassed trillions of dollars and is now spending this money on real tangible assets. The most important part of this investment is that China is investing and creating allies, while we drop bombs.
I have studied the Anglo American Elite very closely and I know they would not go down this road without having a plan. The first part, was the creation of the Petro Dollar standard. Both oil shocks in the 70′s were completely planned by the Anglo American Elite. The Bilderbergers instructed Henry Kissinger to create an oil crisis to increase the price of oil 400% following the closing of the gold window in 1971. The new dollars would be recycled back into America’s markets providing a very powerful petro dollar trade. Admit it, you have always thought it was very odd that the Arabs would be so willing to reinvest their dollars into the great Satan. Now you know it was all a game of power.
What is not as well known, that at the same time the Anglo American Empire started the Petro Dollar standard, they stopped all development of oil in America. After all, why use our precious and limited resources when we can print little green pieces of paper and get someone else’s oil? I guarantee you, that as soon as the dollar dies and we are no longer able to import oil for dollars, America will announce the most amazing oil “finds.” We still have half of the Gulf, both the East and West Coasts, Colorado, the Bakken Field, and most importantly Alaska. These projects will be up and running in record time to help re-establish the Anglo American dominance.
The end of the Petro Dollar will end our world and the Anglo American Elite will not go down without a fight. I theorized in the 3 Coming False Flags that Elite will pick a fight with China way before we accept a 3rd world status. Throughout the most of the last century the Anglo American Elite built up and created enemies. They do this to have wars, that create more debt and control natural resources in order to maintain their dominance. There is ample evidence that Wall St funded the Bolshevik Revolution and even financed and supported the Soviet Empire up until its final days. Without their support, Stalin would have lost the war, never been given half of Europe, and starved millions of times over with the utter failure of Communism. The British funded and created Hitler. While America was going through the Great Depression, Germany was booming with the creation of Hitler’s dream. Even Benito Mussolini was on the British payroll. Even more recentlySaddam Hussien received billions of dollars of support and was practically begged not to give up the dollar for oil trade. When he crossed that line, he had to go. (Just like Gaddafi and his gold Dinar dream.)
The Anglo American elite, more specifically the Rothschilds, have supported both sides of almost every war in the past two centuries. The Rothschilds power is derived off of their ability to lend out more debt. Nothing creates debt faster than war. Without war, debts would eventually be paid off and control of assets would slip from their fingers. In order to create massive debts, massive threats have to be created. I believe that China will become the next major enemy of the Anglo American Elite. A little over a decade ago, China was nothing. They were a backwards country that had been closed to the outside world for decades. With the most favored nation trade status, their exports rose astronomically and trillions went into building up an economic, political and military threat. Without the Elite building up China, they would have been nothing.
When I first looked into the HKMEx I was mainly looking to see if silver manipulators JP Morgan, Goldman or HSBC were involved. The good news, I did not see that they had any controlling or operational influence in the HKMEx. The worst thing I guess I found out of the list of board members was President Albert Helmig was a former VP of the NYMEX. The amount of information on the rest of the board is limited most likely because they are Chinese and English Google is limited. I then looked a little further to see who was paying the board.
I have discovered that Nathan Rothschild along with the People’s Bank of China created the privately owned Hong Kong Mercantile Exchange. According to MarketsWiki the HKMEx was founded by En+ Group. On the face of it, it looks like a Russian company is partnering with China as they strengthen ties inside of the anti-Hegemon. When you look at the board of En+ Group you see Nathan Rothschild is at the genesis of this new market that looks poised to take down the dollar.
Saif Gaddafi with Rothschild Minion Oleg Deripaska
Nathan Rothschild has had other deals with “enemies”of the Anglo American Empire. Recently, it has become apparent that Nathan Rothschild had deep financial ties with Muammar Gaddafi in Libya. The relationship was interesting since most of the world’s central banks are Rothschild controlled and Libya was one of the few nations not under the Rothschild control. Nat developed a relationship with Gaddafi’s son Saif, then when the time was right, Gaddafi would have to go.
Mikhail Khordorkovsky
This is small potatoes compared to the Rothschild Rape of Russia. You may vaguely remember the rise of the Oligarchs in Russia after the collapse of the Soviet Union. It was said that these few young men became the richest men in the world when then bought and controlled huge portions of the natural resources and industries in the former Soviet Union for pennies on the dollar. We were told that they were lucky, smart or cunning. The reality was that they were merely front men for a much larger power. Young men like Mikhail Khordorkovsky went from obscurity to owning the Russian equivalent of Exxon Mobil in a few years. For years these Oligarchs controlled Russia with their wealth and mob like tactics. Finally, when Vladimir Putin wrestled control of Russia from the Oligarchs it became apparent that the power was never with the Oligarchs, but the Rothschilds. When Vladimir Putin imprisoned Mikhail Khordorkovsky it was reveled that Jacob Rothschild was the real owner of Yukos.
Oleg Deripaska
Now Jacob’s son Nathan, is partnering with another Rothschild Russian Oligarch Oleg Deripaska in En+ Group with China, what could possibly go wrong? Oleg Deripaska was a manager of a smelter at 25. Four years later he owned the Sibirsky Aluminium Investment Industrial Group. That grew into Basic Element conglomerate that controlled…
  • United Company RUSAL Largest Aluminum Producer
  • Ingosstrakh oldest insurance company
  • GAZ automotive
  • Avaikor Aviation
  • EuroSibEnergo Power Company
  • Glavmosstroy Construction
In 2008, Oleg was the eight richest man in the world with an estimated worth of $28 Billion dollars.(All of these “richest”lists never show you the real wealth of trillionaire families like the Rothschilds who ownCentral Banks.) All of Oleg’s wealth came of course through the power of the Rothschilds. Oleg thrived in the chaotic era of crime that was rampant in Russia after the collapse. The Aluminum Wars were probably one of the more violent episodes in the battle for control. Lawlessness in Siberia was rampant as, “politicians, managers or reporters –were run over, shot, had their throats cut or were killed in air crashes.” In the midst of all of this violence, Oleg emerged the king of Aluminum.
It is also important to note that the Rothschilds exited the LBMA in 2004.The Rothschilds have been involved and owned gold for centuries. They know more than any other family in the world, the power of gold. At the LBMA they and a few other families owned so much gold that they literally met twice a day to literally fix the global price of gold. So why did they leave the LBMA after 200 years in London and why are they going back in to the game in China? My speculation is that the LBMA does not have all of the gold they are trading as Andrew Maguire’s testimony proved. These Anglo American banks are trading and suppressing the real price of gold and silver with multiple paper schemes. My guess is that the Rothschilds simply left the scene of the crime before it comes crashing down.
So why China? Given the history of the Rothschilds and the fact that their wealth has been tied to buying assets when there is “blood on the streets,” I think China will be the next to bleed. The heart of the Anglo American empire is the Rothschilds and Rockefellers. They have been actively courting China to join forces with them. These Elitists actually admire the Chinese in their ability to control their citizens and its free reign they give to industrialists.
“Whatever the price of the Chinese Revolution, it has obviously succeeded not only in producing more efficient and dedicated administration, but also in fostering high morale and community of purpose. The social experiment in China under Chairman Mao’s leadership is one of the most important and successful in human history.” -David Rockefeller, statement about Mao Tse-tung in The New York Times, August 10, 1973 (65 million died under Mao.)
“Some even believe we (the Rockefeller family) are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure—one world, if you will. If that’s the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.” -David Rockefeller, Memoirs, page 405
The Rothschild minion George Soros has been trying the hardest to get the Chinese to play ball with the Anglo American Elite. Their creation of a New World Order must have China or it will collapse.The Chinese have been wise to take from the Anglo American empire and not give them any control. They play along while they continue to strengthen their position. Ultimately if the Chinese do not take the offer, they will be handled with the gun. (Read the 3 Coming False Flags.)
If my sons did not want warthere would be no war.” -Baron Rothschild
Having the Rothschilds involved at the HKMEx really raises my alarm as they create deeper ties inside the Chinese elite. If you know anything about the Rothschilds they are very generous and gracious friends when they want something from you, and when they have what they want, they turn the tide and leave you hanging. They mastered the cycle of lending generously money that they don’t have through fractional reserve banking and then contracting credit markets so that they take ownership of the assets that they loaned against. The big play they mastered is loaning to both sides of wars and then making sure that the victors are responsible for the defeated debts to be paid. Don’t dance with the devil.
“I care not what puppet is placed upon the throne of England to rule the Empire on which the sun never sets. The man who controls Britain’s money supply controls the British Empire, and I control the British money supply.”The current Nathan Rothschild namesake Lord Nathan Rothschild.
China would be wise not to associate with the Rothschilds and the Anglo American Empire, just look at the Opium Wars. When the British Empire continued to run trade deficits with China, they tried diplomacy with Lord McCartney and economic inducements, all of which failed. The more tea, silk and porcelain the British imported, the lower the money stock of silver the British Empire had. This was because China was on the silver standard and they would not buy any English goods to off set the trade imbalance. (Sound familiar?)
So what did the British do? They smuggled Opium into port cities and started a drug trade to create problems for the Chinese Elite, weaken the Chinese populace and get the silver back from the Chinese. When the Chinese asserted their sovereignty and fought against these drug dealing criminals, it started the two Opium Wars that ravaged China for years. The British defeated the Chinese and they the signed the Treaty of Nanjing in 1842. The Chinese signed over all of their ports and international trade to the British. (If you ever wondered how Britain owned Hong Kong, now you know.) The Rothschilds controlled Britain at the time and I am sure that they were influential in getting the eight nation army to crush the Boxer Rebellion in 1898. The Anglo American Empire subjugated the Chinese until Mao kicked out all of the Westerners.
What does this all mean for silver? I believe that the HKMEx is still a very positive development for the price of physical silver, despite the Rothschild involvement. The Rothschilds are some of the most brilliant men on earth. There is no denying this, given the amount of power that they have accumulated over many generations. Nat Rothschild is clearly the future of the dynasty. (Especially since enviro Jesus David de Rothschild has blown his mission for the Global Warming Carbon Credit Scheme.) The Rothschilds throughout history have not so much created history, but flowed along with history. They used to study the effect of sunspots on the prices of grain. They have carefully watched political and economic cycles to be in the right place at the right time. All of which I am teaching in the Sons of Liberty Academy. The Rothschilds know that the debt cycle is coming to an end and that it is a mathematical certainty. Even they, cannot prevent this from happening. So they are preparing for the turn in history.
The fact that the Rothschilds are back in the metals market and they are behind smaller silver contracts being sold in China, is a good thing for the price of silver. Any more physical demand in a huge market like China can only accelerate the inevitable physical silver default. The price of silver over the long term cannot be stopped. At some point the 3 Demands of Silver will force the physical prices of silver to over ride the paper price of silver once and for all.
“You can ignore reality but not the consequences of reality.”-Ayn Rand
What I am very concerned is the coming crisis between the Anglo American Empire and the anti-Hegemon. It is fun to think about the price of silver when the physical reality sets in, but the economic, political and military reality of what will happen is very disconcerting. I hope I am wrong about my prediction of the 3 Coming False Flags, but the more time goes by, the more I see that this will not end well. The Anglo American Empire still has the largest military, the strongest propaganda machine and deepest capital markets. They will not just throw their hands up and let the Chinese dictate the future without a fight.
Finally, I would like to touch on another subject that I am sure will play into this, racism. believe when this time comes to make China into the next Nazi regime, all of the power used to make Arabs into “animals,” will be turned against the Chinese to make middle America blame those “slant eyed, commie bastards.”Donald Trump has already called China our “enemy.” Video games and movies are trying to make China our new enemy. This will all be done to fuel the fire of ignorant Americans to blame China for all of our problems. The fact is that our Elite is responsible for all of our problems. They are the ones running up deficits fighting never ending, senseless wars. They are the ones that invested and built up China while gutting America. They are the ones that control both parties. And sadly they will be the ones to profit off of the next war of the Military Industrial Complex to create a new paradigm. The Elite will blame China while they go back into the shadows retaining power and making more profits.
I know I could have made this article very small and simply said the Rothschilds are owners of the HKMEx, but that would not have put into perspective what is really going on in this world. I spent 6 years studying and putting together the Greatest Story NEVER Told, the enslavement of humanity by the Elite. Far to often what is missing from the even the best bloggers, is the historical, economic, political, military, emotional and even spiritual perspective of what is behind all of these stories. I believe that everyone should understand how the world works and the Sons of Liberty Academy is by far the best way to wake up to this reality.
