Chris Megerian and Anthony York, McClatchy Newspapers: Tony Russo had a multimillion-dollar problem.

Weekly geo-political news and analysis

By Benjamin Fulford

The ongoing global financial war is reaching its final stages. Multiple reliable sources in three continents are all now reporting that a major breakthrough in the financial logjam is imminent. We can confirm from our own sources (including MI6 and Japanese military intelligence) that a large delegation descended on Washington last week and read the riot act to the Washington D.C. establishment. They have been informed the Federal Reserve Board must be shut down immediately and the new financial system must be implemented or else the United States would be totally cut off from the world.

The military is also close to open revolt with more than half of the military supporting a total clean up of Washington D.C., according to a CIA source. The Washington establishment therefore faces a choice between stepping aside and facing a truth commission or else arrest, civil war,chaos and eventual death for all members of the ruling cabal. We believe that sane minds will prevail in such a situation and that a peaceful resolution is imminent. However, it is not over until it is over.
Last week the Chinese were on the verge of helping the US government kill the supporters of the new financial system in Washington until the Japanese government intervened to provide protection. There were then discussions with the Chinese where they were given an explanation of the inner workings of the international financial system. They were also made an offer.

What was told to them was that over 90% of the dollars ever created were not owned by Americans. The people who own those dollars do not want them to become worthless paper when the Federal Reserve Board implodes. Instead, all dollars earned through honest work (i.e. not through derivates and other types of fraud) would be backed by gold. These gold backed dollars would then be renamed. The Chinese want to call it the Renminbi. The Rothschilds want to call it the Hong Kong dollar. Our proposal is to call it the Hong Kong yen (pronounced yuan in Chinese). Many details will have to be worked out by experts. However, it is certain that never again will it be possible for private individuals to manipulate the world through the creation of money. The Chinese insist the creation of new money should be a job run by the government and this was agreed to by the concerned parties.

A high powered Japanese government delegation will be going to the Philippines towards the end of the year to deliver Chinese gold taken there in the 1930’s to China to be used for the purposes of backing up their dollar holdings. The Japanese delegation, led by the Japanese government& rsquo;s number two man, Hajime Ishii, will also be given presentations about suppressed technology.

I will also be going there to give them some ideas about a new structure of global governance.

The Chinese want to move the UN headquarters to Laos because it is the site of some of the most ancient and pristine Asian culture. This seems like a nice idea. Of course the UN is now an extremely dysfunctional organization and will have to be totally revamped. It now serves as a global control mechanism for the victors of World War 2. This will be fundamentally changed.

In addition, the functions of the World Bank will be moved to China, probably to Hong Kong. All current World Bank employees will have their track records examined and only those who have contributed positively to the planet will be re-employed.

The IMF will be disbanded because it has only caused misery and poverty throughout the world. It has functioned mainly to steal resources and property from the people of the world. In its place the Japanese will set up a new institution that will function to ensure the safety and stability of the global financial system. Hopefully it will be headquartered in Osaka.

All of these institutions will be set up as meritocracies. Anybody will be allowed to take the exam to join them. In addition, there will no longer be places at the top reserved for people of specific ethnic backgrounds.

The new organizations will all be very busy because the entire commercial structure of the planet will be changed. The industries that are expected to vanish or shrink dramatically include: petroleum, war, nuclear power and pharmaceuticals and automobiles. Companies in these industries will need substantial help to transform themselves. The petroleum industry, for example, could be changed into a geo-engineering industry. The armaments folk will move into space exploration. The automobile industry will start to manufacture anti-gravity scooters. The transformation of all the obsolete industries needs to be carried out in a manner that causes as little social disruption and dislocation as possible.

In addition all countries will have to agree to submit to the international court of Justice. Disputes between countries should be settled through negotiations or else in court.

However, it might be possible for countries to also agree to settle disputes through ritual warfare. They could, for example, each send 10 of their best martial artists to a desert island to duel it out but no killing will be allowed. The winning country will then get a more advantageous settlement of whatever the dispute was.

In any case, humanity is about to be freed from the grips of a horrific cult that has killed hundreds of millions of people over the years. Most of the 800 US military bases world-wide may well be shut down. The US military will have to be transformed into an entirely different organization dedicated to planetary defense and big projects for humanity.

We are headed for an unprecedented historical transformation. Hang on to your hats.

New Moon Phase: begin, emerge, intend

Moon: Sagittarius

Ruling Mahavidya: Kamala

The planets are booming today. Mercury retrograde is particularly powerful, tangling up communications and making things overall energetically noisy. Mars is activating charisma and drama, hyping things up. Jupiter is taking things to the extreme.

Wise owls remain calm today, dealing with one thing at a time. We reinforce our grounded,grassroots connection with Sophia through a loop of love.

Communication is difficult today, but here is the mission to ground light as best as I can describe it. We re-imprint the “crazy” energy present today by recognizing the power of it and then re-grouping that power into raw “bundles.” In other words, we are going to redistribute the overall energy and our personal energy. Look at how you are expending your time and energy and then consider how you need to change it up, regroup it, or balance it. By redistributing your energy now, you are reinforcing/strengthening future possibilities. Since this lunar month relates to the idea of limitlessness, your bundles can be mounds and mountains.

Sometimes it’s important to remember that jumbled communications, misunderstandings, and confusion create openings and opportunities. If the energy (and this report) is confusing, our attempt to understand it takes our minds in all kinds of directions. This is creativity in action. Don’t limit your mind but keep your feet on the ground. We are the grassroots!

Why I Did Not Want to See “12 Years a Slave”

Thank you for sharing this. I hope that people who have not seen or read or known these things will see this film. I hope the people who want to return to the “Constitution befire the 14th amendment” will see it, that those who believe that because something happened a long time ago it no longer matters or has bearing on the present will open themselves up to the emotional experience of truth. America is what it is because of what it was. Slavery, genocide, empire-the whydah and guantanamo bay are not unrelated. Rather than erase or pretend our history is clean and bright should we not seek to become something better *because* of what our country was born from?

Marriage Isn’t For You

Thank you for sharing this. It is beautiful. A fine example of why heaven is people with 10 fiit spoons…and so is hell:-)

Seth Adam Smith

Having been married only a year and a half, I’ve recently come to the conclusion that marriage isn’t for me.

Now before you start making assumptions, keep reading.

I met my wife in high school when we were 15 years old. We were friends for ten years until…until we decided no longer wanted to be just friends. 🙂 I strongly recommend that best friends fall in love. Good times will be had by all.

Nevertheless, falling in love with my best friend did not prevent me from having certain fears and anxieties about getting married. The nearer Kim and I approached the decision to marry, the more I was filled with a paralyzing fear. Was I ready? Was I making the right choice? Was Kim the right person to marry? Would she make me happy?

Then, one fateful night, I shared these thoughts and concerns with my dad.

Perhaps each…
