The Coup Continues
‘We Have Allowed Our Elected Officials
To Cede Our National Sovereignty To Bankers’
By Andy Sutton
Early last December, I wrote a piece entitled ‘Crisis or Coup?’ in which the anatomy of the 2008 financial crisis was analyzed in further detail and some conclusions drawn. These conclusions were drawn based on facts and actions, not opinions. It was obvious at the time that the USFed and our own government were acting not in the best interests of the people, but rather in the best interests of banks and large corporations. Crony capitalism, as it has often been called – where profits are kept and losses are written off or passed on to the ‘Plebeians’ of a particular society – ramped into high gear in the US. Remember the fact that the absurd financial structure that is in place was the ‘solution’ to a crisis, which had the fingerprints of the solution providers all over it.
Fast forward one year and the same mechanism is firmly in place again and working very well – this time in Europe. Again, the abuse of debt has been the main villain. Couple that to greed, avarice, and unlimited access to power and you’re going to have problems. EU2010 is no different than USA2008 on a fundamental level. The only difference is the consumer-driven side of the Eurozone didn’t cause problems first – the sovereign issues roared to the forefront.
And what is happening to those leaders in the countries that are balking what are essentially multiple coup d’ etats? They’re summarily dismissed. George Papandreou in Greece has been replaced by Lucas Papdemos, a rabid central banker (ECB). Silvio Berlusconi in Italy is out, replaced (likely) by Mario Monte, a guy who has all sorts of insidious connections to the Rockefeller/Rothschild global banking syndicate. Aka, the same syndicate that is gutting America through its creature from Jekyll Island, the federal reserve system itself.
So two countries’ leaders toppled, and what of Portugal? Interestingly enough, Portuguese President Anibal Cavaco Silva has evidently learned how he is supposed to behave from the demise of Berlusconi and Papandreou. He is now a card-carrying water carrier for the syndicate. Check out his quote made on 11/10/11:
