Chinese Yuan is now a Reserve Currency & Will Be Gold Backed

The International Monetary Fund has just included the Chinese Yuan in its SDR basket of currencies paving the way for it to become a currency of choice starting October 2016. This Yuan SDR inclusion will further shutdown the dominance of the dollar as the preferred currency for global exchange.

U.S. Losing Grip on IMF / World Bank as ‘Policy Instrument”

GTG

After we have made things complicated and completely messed them up, we are now trying hard to simplify them.

Nowadays, among the things we love to simplify is the lingo. Oh, how we love to shorten things out:

  • Instead of saying “you’re so funny”, we’d say LOL.
  • The funny guy would be surprise and ask WF, to mean “what for”?
  • Thinking that the funny guy missed the T in the middle, all you can say is 🙂
  • And when you can’t stand this pointless conversation anymore, you’d say GTG.

It’s the same in the world of finance, we have G7 and of course G20. I’m just curious, though, as to when can we ever have an E1, i.e. EarthOne?

Anyway, a German minister is now saying that Greece should GTG out of the Eurozone…

The outgoing WB Chief, Robert Zoellick, who said GTG two weeks ago, is rather merciless…

According to Ben Fulford, Mr. Geithner was held by New York City Police for questioning by the WHs where he needed to be slapped just to stop his parroting. Among the details that he gave is his being an errand boy, together with Obummer, for Bush Sr.

 

After being detained for questioning by the WHs, Mr. Geihtner proceeded to the G20 Summit where he emphasized that the Eurozone must never rely on the US in lieu of any IMF assistance…

I’m no financial expert, and the only firewall I’m acquainted with, beside both sides of the building I’m in is the computer firewall. But I know exactly what credibility means, and I don’t think these people have it. So what do these people do during and after these meetings?

None.

 

Again, the G20 leaders are echoing what Mr. Geithner had been saying, i.e. that a reliable financial firewall must be put in place before any help can be expected. This is another way of saying, we can’t print money anymore…

For years, I’ve been wondering who pays the bill for these elaborate meetings. Last Saturday, they did it again, this time in Mexico and just so they can say to each other, “We are already bankrupt, don’t ya’ get it?

I mean, what happen to the cellphones?

Here in my country, even the fish vendor, a tricycle driver, or the lowly farmer, have cellphones. Mind you, that’s not an exaggeration. In fact, up to now, we are still holding the record as the “texting capital of the world”. Why not? It’s at the top of the priority list of every Filipino, even a notch higher than the next meal. Cellphones bring us closer together even if we are separated by islands. Being closely knit families enable us to help one another. Yeah, that’s how these ordinary folks survive hard life.

So why aren’t these men with impressive neckties content themselves with teleconferencing, when it is more cost efficient than physically attending these illustrious summits? Or, use smartphones to send text messages to their counterparts, and say, “Hey Buddy, you’ve got an arrest warrant here.”

Can you imagine Bush Sr. texting Merkel, “Angel, I believe we’re fucked up now! Do we still have that vintage Nazi bunker?”

Happy days are over for these lunatics. At this point in time, most people on this planet are ready to revolt. Even without the WDS or the WH, revolution is undoubtedly inevitable. The OWS is just a taste of it.

The madness is just too much.

What these people deserve is not a Nazi bunker, but a Nazi Gas Chamber…

It’s not over ’til it’s over. This shit’s GTG.

The current financial war started when Asian Secret Societies ceased to cooperate with the Dark Cabal, who owns the Federal Reserve, which resulted to the Lehman’s Debacle in 2008, and continues to the decline of the economy in the Eurozone. This countermove is in retaliation to the attempted annihilation of the Asian population through the SARS virus, and the persistent extortion and plunder of sovereign wealth and natural resources via nuclear and HAARP threats, the most prominent of which was the Fukushima Disaster.

Among the underground groups that are now allied with the White Dragon Society is the Yakuza. And just recently, the US corporate government is taking measure to press a point…

Whatever that point is, I don’t think it matters at this time when people are beginning to wake up from their deepest slumber…

Reading the GAO Federal Reserve $16 Trillion Emergency Bailout Loans Audit Report would give us the names of the banks which participated in the grandest scheme to defraud depositors and taxpayers, and as such would also allow us to ascertain the reason why these bankers are resigning en masse. The banks which benefited directly from US$16 Trillion Bailout are outlined in the table below:

Remember, this concluding financial war heated up in 2008 and we could surmise that the effects on the banking sector can only be felt within the last two years as they kept on kicking the can for as long as possible thru treasonous bailouts. Therefore, it is only fitting that, while we prefer to know the latest heads that rolled off the cliff, we might as well look back at the news that the banking sector have already known a few months ago but we are not simply aware of.

The reports below include current and last year’s data:

ANZ

BANK OF AMERICA

Most of the resignations at BOA occurred in 2009, one of which is…

However, we have a few samplers that happened only last year…

BNP PARIBAS

BNY

DEUTSCHE

As to the fate of Mr. Ackerman…

DEXIA

BARCLAYS

ECB

HSBC

KUWAIT

RBS

TURKEY

UBS

BEYOND THE RESIGNATIONS

Even as the president of the World Bank owned by the Committee of 300 is on the way out, an influential report is still being published showing its usual unsolicited interference on somebody else’s affair.

COLLATERAL VICTIMS

And yet this one shenanigan still has the nerve to fool us one more time…

This page will continue to expand as we have not included all the other banks as of yet as mentioned in the GAO report above. And if you’re wondering why we are using snapshots rather than quote and link the sources, we have experienced broken links when we were expanding the first post of this series, such that we suspect somebody is still trying to salvage the sinking ship.

Massive Arrests is Next… Week?

Although I fully understand the reality of life in other planets, galaxies and parallel universes, I didn’t readily bite into these channeled messages purportedly coming from the so-called Galactic Federation of Light or the StarTrek sounding Ashtar Command adventures. But having been an avid follower of Ben Fulford and the patriotic WhiteHats, I could sense that something big is going to happen very, very soon. And I don’t think we need to wait for months or years. I can feel it could be happening within a week.

And as I was scouring the web for more resignations, I was able to come across this very compelling article…

Message from the GFoL: Mass Arrests This Week

You want answers. Please quite yourself for a moment. There will be certain events unfolding within the next few days that will alter the course of your lives on Earth. The mass arrests we have spoken of will begin in earnest, and we would suggest you prepare yourselves for this. We see some disruptions to some services, but not many as these beings are taken into custody, and we would like all of you who have informed yourselves of the importance of these events to share this information far and wide and also educate others as to their relevance.

Be on the lookout for the initiation of these arrests that shall begin very soon. Our Earth allies are in place and are prepared to undertake this massive endeavor. Large numbers of men and even some women will be taken out of your society and into custody where they can no longer interfere with your lives and the proceedings of the events set to unfold in your world.

Source: http://www.in5d.com/gfl-mass-arrests-this-week.html

Like I said, I’m not into these channeling stuffs. In fact I’m very careful in not falling into the trap of unconsciously spreading disinformation, such that this is probably the second time only that we published similarly compelling messages; the first being that which was published through exopolitic.org.

Whether the arrests happen today or the next full moon, who can refuse to love scenes like these…

We’ve never been your people, aren’t we?

Seriously, we should know by now what is happening in Greece in recent days:

  • Fitch downgrades Greece’s long-term ratings
  • Greece downgraded next to default level by Fitch
  • Greek Tragedy turns Comedy with Troika document leak, as Obama’s Boeing PR Crashes in Wichita

default now

Of course, Greece, Spain and Portugal have no other recourse but to declare a default. Why not? Ireland had done it already with a counterpunch that requires the bankers to prove where the hell did the debt came from in the first place?

Greece is poised to take it to the next level, in fact…

Honestly, I don’t really understand Greeko, but I’m pretty sure that guy at the center is not happy where things are going. In fact, here’s the Google trying-hard translation…

Definitely, a good and wise choice for a target!

Yesterday, John Kettler shouted…

At the time of drafting this article there’s still nothing on the news… except the following:

Arrests Made in Italy After Discovery of $6 Trillion in Fake U.S. Bonds

(CNN) — Italian authorities on Friday arrested eight people in possession of an estimated $6 trillion in counterfeit U.S. Treasury bonds, according to Italian paramilitary police and an Italian news agency.

The discovery of the fake bonds — made to look as if they were printed by the U.S. Federal Reserve in 1934 — came about as part of an investigation into a local mafia association.

The arrest order for the alleged criminals was issued by a preliminary investigative judge in the southern Italian city of Potenza, police noted.

Italian authorities, working with their Swiss counterparts, learned about the counterfeit bonds by way of eavesdropping on wiretapped phones, police said.

The total of $6 trillion is more than twice the Italy’s national debt.

Massive Resignations Have Started

Recently, the WhiteHats released this video of Lord James of BlackHeath urging the House of Lords to conduct an investigation into a possible bank heist to the tune of US$ 15 Trillion. This is a very significant measure as it is now put on public record, right at the very heart of the British Empire, those “wild rumors” being passed around in the alternative media. The White Dragon Society represented by Ben Fulford is also confirming that a March 31st deadline has been set by the Gnostic Illuminati against the Khazarian Satanic Cabal to transfer power over to Prince Harry before Global Settlements can be implemented.

The transcript of Lord James’ speech above can be downloaded here.

It is our understanding that this amount is separate from the US$16 Trillion being doled out since Obummer was put into office. But reading the GAO Federal Reserve $16 Trillion Emergency Bailout Loans Audit Report suggests both could be related.

To further understand what is at stake in the Global Settlements is to read the details of these documents (including the header) as forwarded to Ben Fulford by a “source linked to the late Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos” and is verified to be authentic, and in fact, signed by both WB President Zoellick, himself, and Hitler’s niece Elizabeth…

Yes, Lord James of BlackHeath’s $15 Trillion bombshell is just a drop in the bucket as the above pages have shown at least US$ 1,464 Trillion to be used for worldwide development as committed to by the real owners of these assets. As the truth about these assets slowly unfolded in the last few months, a wave of increasing pressure mounts against the people in full control of the current financial system.

There are already significant resignations made by CEOs and other high-ranking officials around the globe. Are we now witnessing the downfall of the Dark Cabal?

Will 2012 be the end of the world as we know it?

World Bank President Zoellick Resigns

“I’m honored to have led such a world class institution with so many talented and exceptional people. Together we have focused on supporting developing countries to navigate crises and adjust to global economic shifts. The Bank has recognized that we live in a world of multiple poles of growth where traditional concepts of the “Third World” are now outdated…”

(WASHINGTON) — World Bank President Robert Zoellick said Wednesday he is stepping down, raising the possibility that a non-American might be chosen for the first time to head the 187-nation lending organization.

Zoellick, 58, informed the board he will leave June 30 at the end of a five-year term, during which he led the bank’s response to the global financial crisis.

The board now begins looking for a new president under guidelines directors adopted in 2011 calling for an “open, merit-based and transparent selection” process.

Four Priests Charged In Vatican Banking Scandal

Italian investigators have charged four priests with laundering money out of the Vatican’s official bank, the Institute for the Works of Religion, the National Catholic Reporter’s John L. Allen Jr. writes.

The Italian daily l’Unita was the first to report that the priests were being investigated for laundering hundreds of thousands of dollars.

It’s the latest in a series of investigations into Vatican finances dating back to 2010. In December of that year, Pope Benedict XVI decreed an updated anti-money laundering law for Vatican finances.

CFO of ANZ Bank Resigns Amid Turmoil

The chief financial officer of Australia & New Zealand Banking Group Ltd. announced recently that he will resign from the position, a move that will reportedly lead to a significant executive shuffle.

According to MarketWatch, CFO Peter Marriott says he plans to pursue a non-executive career after spending 15 years as the bank’s finance chief. Marriott will officially leave the financial institution on May 1, at which time institutional banking head Shayne Elliott will reportedly take over the role.

This move will lead to a number of other changes, as the bank’s head of Asian operations will take on a larger role to include global institutional banking, while a new chief executive for global wealth management and private banking will also be named.

Nicaragua Central Bank Head Quits Amid Row

By Adam Williams and Blake Schmidt – Feb 15, 2012 3:25 AM GMT+0800

Nicaragua’s Central Bank President Antenor Rosales quit amid differences with President Daniel Ortega over plans to use central bank reserves for the creation of a regional bank for a Venezuelan-led bloc of Latin American nations, known as Alba.

Ortega has proposed that Finance Minister Alberto Guevara replace Rosales as head of the central bank, said Edwin Castro, the chief legislator for the ruling Sandinista party, in a statement on a government website today. Castro said the appointment must be approved by lawmakers and didn’t say whether Guevara would continue at the Finance Ministry.

Castro said Rosales’s resignation was “normal government procedure” and not a result of the disagreement with Ortega.

In a Feb. 4 meeting of Alba leaders in Caracas, Ortega agreed to put 1 percent of Nicaragua’s international reserves, or about $17 million, toward the Alba bank, according to a statement on a government website. Rosales told reporters in Managua on Feb. 6 that “no one can touch the international reserves of Nicaragua.”

“The resignation of Rosales sends a bad message to the people of Nicaragua,” opposition legislator Wilfredo Navarro said in comments at the National Assembly broadcast on TV Channel 100% Noticias. “He was defending the legality of the country’s central bank institution. Withdrawing funds for an unknown bank is a violation of the institution.”

Switzerland’s Central Bank Chief Resigns

Swiss National Bank Chairman Philipp Hildebrand arrives in front of the Swiss National Bank building for a news conference in Bern January 9, 2012. Hildebrand resigned with immediate effect on Monday, relinquishing one of the world’s top 10 central banking jobs because he has been unable to prove he was unaware of a $418,000 currency trade made by his wife.

Philipp Hildebrand defends his achievements at financial institution as he bows to uproar over private currency deals.

The Swiss National Bank chairman has resigned abruptly, bowing to a public uproar over his private currency deals.

Philipp Hildebrand’s decision comes just as a Swiss parliamentary committee is preparing to grill him behind closed doors.

His resignation took effect immediately on Monday, Switzerland’s central bank said in a brief statement.

A short time later, Hildebrand called an impromputu press conference in the Swiss capital of Bern, where he emphasised that he was proud of his achievements at financial institutions in Switzerland and international organisations such as the World Bank.

“I would like to think I have been a damn good central banker,” Hildebrand said.

Embarrassment for Merkel as German president resigns in disgrace after trying to bag the press

  • President Christian Wulff is though to be about to leave his office amid an escalating scandal
  • He is alleged to have accepted free holidays from wealthy friends, upgrades on airlines and discounted cars

By Allan Hall and David Williams

Last updated at 1:57 AM on 18th February 2012

Germany’s president resigned in disgrace yesterday after failing to gag newspapers investigating him over political favours.

The resignation of Christian Wulff – a victory for Press freedom – is an embarrassing blow to Chancellor Angela Merkel, who had hand-picked her political ally as president.

In a curt statement at the presidential palace in Berlin, Mr Wulff said he had lost the trust of the German people, making it impossible to continue in a role meant to serve as a moral compass for the nation.

Close: Christian Wulff, pictured with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, has been forced to resign after trying to gag newspapers investigating political favours

He was forced to resign after trying to stop German newspapers investigating a home loan scandal involving more than £430,000 received from a businessman friend’s wife – allegations taken up by prosecutors.

Mr Wulff, 52, whose role was mainly ceremonial, admitted making a ‘grave mistake’ by leaving a message on the answering machine of the editor of Germany’s best-selling Bild newspaper threatening ‘war’ if the daily published a story about his private finance dealings.

Berlusconi Could Get Five Years

Italian prosecutors have demanded a five-year prison sentence for former premier Silvio Berlusconi in his trial on corruption charges.

Prosecutor Fabio De Pasquale urged the court to find Mr Berlusconi guilty of having paid a British lawyer 600,000 dollars (£382,000) to lie in other trials involving charges of tax evasion and false accounting related to the billionaire media mogul’s business dealings.

The court is racing toward a verdict before the charges expire due to the statute of limitations. Mr De Pasquale calculated that would happen by mid-July.

This is one of several cases pending against Mr Berlusconi in Milan courts, including a trial on charges of having paid for sex with an underage prostitute.

He stepped down in November after failing to persuade investors he could revive the ailing economy.

Blankfein out as Goldman Sachs CEO by summer?

Exclusive: Goldman Sachs prepares for life after Lloyd Blankfein, and Gary Cohn is the leading candidate to succeed him as CEO.

lloyd_blankfein_gary_cohnGary Cohn, right, is next in line to replace Lloyd Blankfein, left

FORTUNE — Lloyd Blankfein may step down as chief executive of Goldman Sachs as early as this summer; and president and chief operating officer Gary Cohn is the lead candidate to replace him, according to a Goldman executive and a source close to the firm.

A Goldman spokesman declined to comment.

To be sure, anything can happen over the course of the next few months and the departure of Blankfein, 57, is not certain. It is still up in the air whether Blankfein wants to step down. It would also not be unheard of for Blankfein to share the role of CEO, as so many others at Goldman have in the past. Former co-heads include John Weinberg and John Whitehead; Robert Rubin and Stephen Friedman; and Jon Corzine and Henry Paulson.

But corporate governance experts have emphasized that leadership changes at the nation’s largest financial institutions go a long way toward helping those firms move past the troubles – particularly the reputational damages – wrought by the financial crisis. The feisty Blankfein, the son of a postal worker who grew up in Brooklyn, is one of the only big bank CEOs to have kept his job after the financial crisis. The other is Jamie Dimon, CEO of JPMorgan Chase (JPM).

Bank feud: Chairman Giles quits VNB with other directors

A feud over corporate governance compounded an already painful December for a major Central Virginia financial institution. Virginia National Bank has experienced a leadership shake-up that has seen nearly one third of the board of trustees quit including the chairman, Mark Giles.

“My resignation is effective immediately,” Giles tells President Glenn Rust in a December 19 letter that followed an apparently contentious meeting earlier that day. Neither Rust nor Giles, who spent nearly a decade as the Bank’s first president and who chaired the board since 2005, returned repeated telephone messages.

Two other board members, Ms. Claire Gargalli and Mr. Leslie Disharoon, also quit that same Monday in what the bank concedes was a disagreement over the composition of its board of directors. A fourth director on the 13-person board, Neal Kassell, resigned two days later for unstated reasons.

Arrests in Olympus Scandal Point to Widening Inquiry Into a Cover-Up

Hisashi Mori, the former executive vice president of Olympus, left, and Tsuyoshi Kikukawa, a former chairman and president, were among those arrested

TOKYO — Arrests of seven people Thursday accused of involvement in the $1.7 billion accounting scandal at Olympus, including the company’s former chairman and executive vice president, point to a widening investigation into a cover-up ostensibly carried out by top management with the help of a group of former bankers.

Tsuyoshi Kikukawa, who was the company’s chairman until the scandal broke last fall, was arrested in Tokyo as were two other former executives on suspicion of having falsified financial statements, Tokyo prosecutors said. Two former Nomura investment bankers who had been previously mentioned by investigators were also taken into custody, accused of violating securities laws, and so were two of the bankers’ associates.

By aiming a spotlight on what critics say is Japan’s lax corporate governance, and casting a shadow over one of the country’s former blue-chip companies, the Olympus scandal has become a test of how far Japan is willing to go to fight white-collar crime.

Head of Russian Bank Regulator Steps Down

The head of supervision at Russia’s central bank has resigned after a series of scandals in which regulators failed to detect massive mismanagement in some of Russia’s largest banks. Gennady Melikyan, deputy governor of the central bank in charge of bank supervision, announced he would step down on Sept. 9. He occupied one of the most hazardous jobs in the Russian financial sector – his predecessor Andrei Kozlov was shot dead in 2006 in an assassination-style hit after launching a crusade to…

Slovenia’s Two Biggest Banks’ CEOs Step Down as Woes Mount

Nova Ljubljanska Banka d.d. and Nova Kreditna Banka Maribor d.d., Slovenia’s two largest banks, are without chiefs as they struggle with mounting bad loans.

Andrej Plos, the chief executive officer of Nova Kreditna Banka Maribor, who took the helm of Slovenia’s second-biggest bank in January, offered his resignation today without giving a reason. Bozo Jasovic, the CEO of the larger Nova Ljubljanska Banka d.d. stepped down in December over the bank’s attempt to sell the holding in retailer Mercator Poslovni Sistem d.d. to the Croatian rival Agrokor d.d.

“It’s actually hard to believe that the biggest lenders are without a proper leadership in such crucial times for the banking sector and as Slovenia sees its credit rating lowered due to a fragile bank system,” Saso Stanovnik, head of research at Ljubljana brokerage Alta Invest d.d., said in an e-mail today. “One can only hope the new leaderships are in place as soon as possible to tackle the problems of the banking sector.”

Slovenian banks are struggling with mounting losses as the faltering economy pushes more companies into bankruptcy. Lenders in Slovenia, which adopted the euro in 2007, reported 356 million euros ($469 million) of losses last year, the central bank said on Feb. 7.

Social finance pioneer Hayday steps down from Charity Bank

Malcolm Hayday, CEO and one of the founders of Charity Bank, has decided to step down from the post this year.

Under Hayday’s leadership, Charity Bank has grown from concept to launching as the world’s first general registered charity that is also an authorised bank.

This year Charity Bank celebrates its 10th anniversary, with the bank’s balance sheet at the end of 2011 exceeding £80m, an increase of almost 20% on the previous year, and many times the opening figure of £6.4m in 2002. It also expects to report a surplus of over £350,000.

Two Top Morgan Stanley Bankers Resign

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Morgan Stanley’s (NYSE:MWD – news) two top investment bankers resigned on Wednesday, increasing the pressure on Chief Executive Philip Purcell and raising questions about whether the securities firm can remain independent.

The resignations are the biggest blow yet in a battle raging between Purcell and a group of eight former Morgan Stanley executives seeking to oust him.

Joseph Perella, Morgan’s investment banking chairman and company vice chairman and one of the best-known bankers on Wall Street, resigned after 12 years at the firm. Tarek “Terry” Abdel-Meguid, a long-time Perella deputy and the head of investment banking, also quit.

The firm quickly named new co-heads of its Investment Banking Division and said Perella and Meguid had agreed to stay on for an unspecified transition period.

“Morgan Stanley simply cannot be managed if this much turmoil exists within,” Punk, Ziegel & Co. analyst Dick Bove said. “And if it cannot be effectively managed, I don’t see how Purcell can stay at the top.”

Morgan Stanley’s board responded directly to the dissidents on Wednesday, criticizing their campaign and reaffirming its support for Purcell.

At least 10 traders and bankers have left the firm since Purcell shook up management in the securities business late last month. The departure of Perella is especially painful because of his stature on Wall Street and his recent support for Purcell.

Key Chavez Minister Resigns Amid Banking Corruption Fallout

By Jeremy Morgan
Latin American Herald Tribune staff

CARACAS — President Hugo Chavez lost one of his closest and oldest collaborators as Science and Technology Minister Jesse Chacon submitted his resignation after his brother was arrested in connection with the crisis in which state control has been imposed on six banks.

Arne Chacon was arrested by the state security service, DISIP, after three more banks, Banco Real, Baninvest and Central, were “intervened” by the government, in addition to the four banks — Canarias, Banpro, Bolívar and Confederado — that were first taken over on November 20 on orders from Finance Minister Ali Rodriguez Araque. Two stockbroking houses have been raided by Disip and prosecutors since then, one of which is said also to have been put under direct state control.

Brought before a court, Chacon was ordered to be held in custody pending further investigation of his possible involvement in three banks, reports said. Chacon’s brother, the minister, said that when he’d heard the news “I called the president and told him that in these conditions I would prefer to resign so that there would be no doubt about our transparency in this investigation.”
