Is an International Financial Conspiracy Driving World Events?

"They make a desolation and call it peace." -Tacitus

Was Alan Greenspan really as dumb as he looks in creating the late housing bubble that threatens to bring the entire Western debt-based economy crashing down?

Was something as easy to foresee as this really the trigger for a meltdown that could destroy the world's financial system? Or was it done, perhaps, "accidentally on purpose"?

And if so, why?

Let's turn to the U.S. personage that conspiracy theorists most often mention as being at the epicenter of whatever elite plan is reputed to exist. This would be David Rockefeller, the 92-year-old multibillionaire godfather of the world's financial elite.

Postscript to "Spitzer taken down by Mossad?"

In my March 14 article, Spitzer taken down by Mossad, I quoted veteran Beltway reporter Wayne Madsen who said, "Defenses sources have confirmed our March 11 report that Emperors Club VIP, the prostitution firm that entangled New York's outgoing Governor Eliot Spitzer in a call girl ring, is viewed by US intelligence as a front for Israel's intelligence agency, the Mossad.

"The sources claim that Spitzer was 'outed' for his aggressiveness in attacking money launderers connected to Russian-Israeli organized crime syndicates and other Wall Street malfeasance."

Just eight days before that article, a federal judge in New York had ordered that Mark "Michael" Brener be held without bail after his March 6 arrest as the boss procurer in this politically weaponized prostitution scandal. What's more, a JTA Breaking News article, Israeli at center of Spitzer scandal tells us Mark Brener, a 62-year old Israeli of 29 years in the US had an Israeli passport and some $600,000 on hand. Where do they find these guys?

Spitzer taken down by Mossad?

Eliot Spitzer took on Wall Street like no other attorney general before him. As the Washington Post reported in 2004, "His targets in the past have included everyone from big Wall Street investment banks and the $7.5 trillion mutual fund industry to polluting power plants and supermarket chains that underpaid delivery workers."

Additionally, Wayne Madsen reports [subscription required] that "Defense sources have confirmed our March 11, 2008, report that Emperors Club VIP, the prostitution firm that entangled New York's outgoing Governor Eliot Spitzer in a call girl ring, is viewed by US intelligence as a front for Israel's intelligence agency, the Mossad.

Northern Ireland: More evidence of MI5's network of informers and provocateurs in the IRA

According to the Observer, shortly before taking him into "protective custody", it was MI5 itself that warned Roy McShane that he was in danger of being exposed as another British spy close to leadership of the Irish Republican Army (IRA).

MI5 apparently knew of an internal IRA investigation that had revealed McShane's affiliations. How it knew the article did not say, but McShane's exposure in February this year sheds further light on the criminal and murderous operation mounted by British intelligence against the IRA and Sinn Fein.

US: Bush's Carefree Crash-and-Burn Presidency

The more terrified Americans get of Bush's policy disasters, the more bizarrely cheery is his attitude.

Everyone here is flummoxed about why the president is in such a fine mood.

The dollar's crumpling, the recession's thundering, the Dow's bungee-jumping and the world's disapproving, yet George Bush has turned into Gene Kelly, tap dancing and singing in a one-man review called "The Most Happy Fella."
