Usury: Weapon Of Control And Enslavement – Part 2 Of 2

Activist Post November 5 2013

In part one of this article, we defined usury as the lending of money at interest. We examined the history of usury and how it was considered morally reprehensible for thousands of years, prior to becoming the sand foundation modern economies. We also examined the mastery of usury, how they create money out of nothing and use it as a silent weapon for control of humanity.

Here, we examine the crimes and iniquity made possible by usury; and practical solutions.

Banker Bailouts

After the largest banks made bad loans and foreclosed on over ten million (10,000,000) homes, often illegally by forging documents, the private Federal Reserve, which is owned by its member banks, bailed out the following banks with at least $16.9 trillion according to page 131 of the first GAO audit:

  • Citigroup: $2.5 trillion ($2,500,000,000,000)
  • Morgan Stanley: $2.04 trillion ($2,040,000,000,000)

  • Bank of America: $1.344 trillion ($1,344,000,000,000)
  • Barclays PLC (United Kingdom): $868 billion ($868,000,000,000)
  • Bear Sterns: $853 billion ($853,000,000,000)

Who Really Controls the World?

OutsiderClub  August 16 2013

The 1318 transnational corporations that form the core of the economy. Superconnected companies are red, very connected companies are yellow. The size of the dot represents revenue.

It’s the question that conspiracy theorists dedicate their life to answering…
Who really controls the world?

Who is pulling the strings?

Who is hiding behind the curtain?

These questions have long been subject to speculation, scapegoating, and paranoid ravings — some more well-founded than others.

Now, thanks to the science of complex system theory, the answer may actually be right in front of our faces.

This scientific process sheds light on the dark corners of bank control and international finance and pulls some of the major players out from the shadows.

And it goes back to the old credo: Just follow the money…

Systems theorist James B. Glattfelder did just that.

It’s True, Bankers Really Do Control the World

WINTERTHUR, Switzerland – Here’s a gift to Occupy Wall Street protesters around the world: you now have scholarly proof that banks control the world.

The study says the United States takes home first prize with 24 companies cracking the list of the top 50 most powerful global firms. Researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich, also known as ETH, have published a paper that argues just 147 companies account for a large chunk of the total economic value of all the transnational companies around the world. No exact dollar figures, but it’s obviously a vast sum.

Among the top 50 corporations, 45 operate within the financial industry. Barclays PLC is the most powerful, according to the ETH study, followed by such well-known names as JPMorgan Chase & Co., UBS AG, and Merrill Lynch & Co., Inc.

The United States takes home first prize with 24 companies cracking the researchers’ top 50 list, followed by the U.K. with 8, France with 5, Japan with 4, and Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands tying with 2 companies each. Canada has one company in the researchers’ top 50: Sun Life Financial, Inc. secures the 35th spot.

The research shows “a large portion of control flows to a small tightly-knit core of financial institutions,” authors Stefania Vitali, James Glattfelder and Stefano Battiston wrote in their study entitled: The network of global corporate control.

“This core can be seen as an economic ‘super-entity’ that raises new important issues both for researchers and policy makers.”
