Trump’s universal trade war declaration is bringing events to a head

U.S. President Donald Trump’s declaration of trade war with just about everybody is really just a case of Trump negotiating a Chapter 11-style bankruptcy for the United States.  A kinder way of putting it would be to say that the U.S. is revolting against an international system that has looted its people on behalf of globalist oligarchs.  Yet another way of putting it is to say the world is negotiating a replacement for the petro-dollar system.  In any case, we can now expect a lot more shouting and bluster, and possibly even the odd nuke or two, as these negotiations proceed.

In public, this dispute can be seen in the biggest open split between European powers and the United States since the end of World War 2.  We have the leaders of France, Germany, and the EU openly calling for an end to the post-war European/American alliance.  The U.S. side, for its part, has publicly threatened sanctions against European countries.  Under the surface, a U.S. assassination campaign against disobedient EU leaders is also a good guess.

The immediate trigger was Trump’s decision to leave the Iranian nuclear accord.  Of course, anybody who is following what is really going on knows that the Trump decision to leave the Iranian nuclear accord has nothing to do with nuclear weapons and is really about Iran’s announcement that it will sell oil to Europe priced in Euros, not petro-dollars.

Let us start by taking a look at how things will proceed on the superficial level.  Here Trump is saying, “If you do not buy more from us, we will stop buying from you!”  He is also saying, “If you stop using petro-dollars to buy Iranian oil, we will prevent any European country doing business with Iran from doing business with us.”  The Europeans are saying, “You are a deadbeat who is not paying for what you buy, so who cares is you stop buying!”  They are also saying, “We will punish any European companies who obey your sanctions against Iran.”

The most important threat seen in public has been the U.S. threat to impose sanctions against Germany if they proceed with the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline.  This pipeline would allow Germany to import more gas directly from Russia instead of having to go through the Khazarian puppet state of the Ukraine.  In essence Trump is saying, “If you do not buy gas from us (at a 20% markup), we will stop buying your cars.”

The elephant in the living room of this EU/American domestic spat is China and its move to replace the Atlantic alliance with a Eurasian alliance that leaves the Anglo-Saxon powers on the periphery of world power.  The way things are going now, the Chinese are winning because the EU/U.S. spat has given a big boost to Chinese yuan-denominated oil futures and thus strengthening the petro-yuan as a would-be replacement for the petro-dollar.

That is probably why Trump chose a NATO meeting to implicitly threaten a shooting war if his trade war with the EU, China, and the rest of the world does not succeed.  Here are his comments:

“‘Will that be successful?  I tend to doubt it,’ the president told reporters during an appearance with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg.  ‘The reason I doubt it is because China has become very spoiled.  The European Union has become very spoiled.  Other countries have become very spoiled, because they always got 100 percent of whatever they wanted from the United States.

‘But we can’t allow that to happen anymore,’ Trump added.”

However, Chinese secret society sources say they are actually playing a much bigger game and that they are pushing for…

Is Eric Fiorile of the France Conseil National de la Transition an Agent? (More)

RE:  The Conseil National de la Transition – France

After examining Eric Fiorile and his team CNT acting at the Elysée during the Paris march on May 5th, it is becoming quite clear that this guy is perverting all dissidents (just like Jerome Corsi and Alex Jones have).  He is a counter-intelligence agent, acting like a Clown In America through a mix of truth and lies.  As you know, you see the speech, the website, and then the truth emerges.

In reality, Eric Fiorile is exposing the Bilderberg group.  But honestly, he supports François Fillon and makes other mistakes by using dissidents’ names like Natacha Polony, Thierry Meyssan, Gen. Piquemal, and many others.

THE REALITY IS THAT HE IS A CLOWN!

WHY?

Despite what is exposed in his Message to Humanity,

These people and journalists, scholars, and a retired general on his list—famous-name dissidents—were not in Paris with him at the Elysee or Place de la Concorde.  There were 150 activists and tourists who happened to be there in by chance.

My guess is that he is a paid counter-intelligence agent or disinformation agent and probably is reporting to the French government.  That is why he is an expert in using others, exposing the Freemasons, the justice, the United Nations letter, Mr. Valls, Macron, etc.  They use the truth mixed with lies.  He never had an arrest warrant against Macron.  He said that he gave them and he had none left with him.  Come on, he is a clown;  he disappeared in the Underground;  nobody on his team could find him later in the afternoon.

This guy is paid by an outside think tank group as a distraction, or else to take the micky of honest French people and activists through YouTube videos and to report back names to our government.  Listing dissidents does not make him a legitimate French transition president, since we do not have solid evidence from a judge and legal actions.

I would not recommend to assist any translations with his team unless there are top brass of the French judges and military with him providing evidence of a French transition team.

Exposing the Bilderberg group and his members like Mr. Valls, and supporting another one like Mr. Fillon is just a JOKE.  Give me a break!

With love and light.

Thank you;  I will post this.

Response received from Fabrice DUBOURDIEU, Conseil National de Transition de France

Dear Ben,

I don’t know who could have written that, but it’s a rather emotional and incoherent message full of the usual slander from a rival dissident group.

First of all, we aren’t and we never supported Bilderberg participants such as François Fillon.  It’s true that Marc Granié mentioned him in his very emotional video of May 3rd.  That obviously doesn’t mean we are supporting him.  I gave you news about Marc Granié in my previous e-mail.

Your source seems to have read our website, but didn’t get the key point about NTC of France.  Unlike all other dissident organizations, we are covered by the International Rule of Law, since we are a UN-registered NTC.  Only one NTC can exist per country, and this obviously can make other dissident groups jealous.  Some are criticizing our Chairman, which is all they can do because our legitimacy is made of solid iron.

The legitimacy of our NTC is a matter of constitutional law.  Indeed, since the signature of the Lisbon Treaty in December 2007, we don’t have a constitution anymore.  The apparent political regime in power in France is illegal.  If you want to know the details, you can find them in the first e-mail I sent you.  Until now we never met anybody able to legally destroy this case.  We have only met critics about our Chairman.

The good old rumor pretending that Eric Fioril is an agent of the regime is spread mostly by competition and infiltrated competition.  One of the “proofs” they give is that he hasn’t been arrested since he started this movement in 2015.  Once again, they didn’t get the point about our organization whether they know and are jealous of our immunity-like status.  If one of us is arrested, it would be very bad global publicity for the regime, exposing globally the base of our legitimacy.  So far the main asset of the regime is that very few French citizens know about it.

The other reason why it is stupid to say he is an agent of the regime is that the NCT of France is connected to the CNES (Conseil National des Etat de Savoie).  CNES Chairman Fabrice Bonnard is our Justice Adviser.  He engineered the case for the NTC of France in cooperation with our Chairman Eric Fioril.  I sent you a summary of what the CNES is about to accomplish.  Well, if you know about that, it’s totally incoherent for our regime to recruit Eric Fioril.  We are obviously in favor of the Savoy case.  Basically, taking us down would expose two of the biggest skeletons in the closet of the French Republic.  This is the basis of our protection.

The claim that Eric Fioril is an agent to ease the listing of dissidents is a stupid old-school claim;  with electronic surveillance they are all listed anyway.

We never pretended that dissidents like Natacha Polony, Thierry Meyssan, Gen. Piquemal, and others supported us.  There is a list on our website of personalities our members would like to invite to form the government once the transition is in office.

The point about the warrant shows one more time that your source didn’t get the point about NCT of France, the regime, and its judges being fake.  Our Supreme Court is the only legal justice body, so we issued the warrants on our own.  We don’t need putative judges of the regime to produce them.

You have our version about the 5th of May so I won’t write about it again.

To conclude, I’d say that of course, so far we aren’t supported by the elites of France for obvious reasons.  But all top factions controlling our country, the good and the bad, know that if they need a legal regime change, it’s going to be through the NTC of France.  We are the legal escape button of the present illegal and illegitimate regime.

Best regards,

Fabrice DUBOURDIEU

Trump Iran sanctions aimed at forcing Middle East peace, Pentagon sources say

The battle for the planet Earth has heated up again with major movements in the Middle East, Malaysia, Indonesia, Europe, the U.S., and elsewhere as a final showdown approaches between the Zionist fanatics who want World War 3 and the rest of humanity who want world peace and friendship.

On this front, the renunciation by U.S. President Donald Trump of the Iran nuclear accord is, on the surface, a major victory for the Zionists.  However, Pentagon sources say, “The endgame is to force both Iran and Israel to de-nuke after North Korea, and then have permanent peace in the Middle East.”

The Trump move on the Iran nuclear agreement has certainly triggered open, public bickering between the regime of Donald Trump and various European governments.  Thus we have EU Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker saying the EU had to “replace the United States” …
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5709743/We-replace-United-States-EU-chief-attacks-America-turning-allies.html

…while German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Europe could no longer count on U.S. military protection.
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-05-10/merkel-says-europe-can-t-count-on-u-s-military-umbrella-anymore

Of course, French President Emmanuel Macron and UK Prime Minister Theresa May also denounced the Trump move.  This clear and obvious split between the U.S. and Europe is unprecedented in the post-war era.

However, Pentagon sources insist that, “Trump is pulling out of the Iran deal to take down corrupt EU and U.S. officials who may have been bribed, along with globalist French companies like Airbus, Total, Renault, and Peugeot, as well as German companies like Siemens.”  Interestingly, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif backed up this Pentagon claim by threatening to reveal the names of Western politicians who had been bribed in relation to the nuclear deal.

How to explain?

Dear Mr. Fulford,

We exchanged mails close to one year ago.  I thought about writing to thank you for your response on 23 July 2017, but imagined you probably receive hundreds of emails, if not thousands, and did not want to be a pest.  Today I write to send a belated thank-you, but most of all, because I would like your opinion about what happens now that President Trump reneged on the Iran deal.  Insanity, madness, perhaps even senility seems to have overtaken world leaders.  Last year I was worried about Palestine.  Today I’m worried about the whole world.  I despair, Mr. Fulford.  The pit in my stomach seems to be filling up with acid.  What is the world coming to?

I thank you again for taking the time to reply and perhaps send a word of encouragement.  I admire you for keeping up the good fight.  I don’t know if I can do the same.

All the best,
A.M.


Dear A.M.:
The ruling cabal needs fear and hate in order to stay in power.  I assume you are in the United States, where fear and hate propaganda are the most intense.  Please understand that seen from the perspective of the world at large, love is winning.  The situation in Iran will lead to some histrionics for a while, but it will not lead to World War 3.  The good guys are winning, so please relax and enjoy your life.
B.F.

Purge at highest levels of secret government spells doom for the satanists

A change of guard and a purge of secret power brokers is breaking the deadlock in the battle for the Earth, say Pentagon, Vatican, agency, and other sources.  This is expected to result in the official disclosure of 9/11 and 3/11 truth as well as the removal of several G7 leaders, according to the sources.  To kick off this process, Admiral Mike Rogers, the head of the NSA who “resigned” on May 4th, “will testify before Congress to deal death blow to the cabal,” Pentagon sources say.

A publicly visible sign of this change was the formal election of Fra’ Giacomo Dalla Torre as the 80th Grand Master of the Knights of Malta on May 2.
https://www.ncronline.org/news/world/knights-malta-elect-interim-leader-new-grand-master

This is important because the Knights of Malta is not just a charity, but a military order whose members, the tip top of the Western elite, must obey orders.  At one point MI6 sent me a list of the members of the order and I saw that it included enough senior U.S. military officers and agency officials to control the military-industrial complex.  Unfortunately, somebody was so concerned about my having it that it was removed from my computer along with a removable backup hard drive I thought I had hidden away.  Nonetheless, other public lists show the order includes people like George Bush Sr. and Jr., Henry Kissinger, David Rockefeller, Queen Elizabeth, etc.
https://www.biblebelievers.org.au/kmlst1.htm

What is interesting about Dalla Torre is that he obeys Pope Francis, unlike his predecessor, Fra’ Robert Festing, who reported to Cardinal Raymond Burke.  This is what self-described satanist Leo Zagami had to say about this move:

“Our worst fears became real when the last traditionalist Order that poses a threat to Francis, the Knights of Malta, still immensely powerful within the military and intelligence community worldwide (including the conservative side of the C.I.A), have seemingly lost their battle for the defense of tradition and Christianity.”
http://leozagami.com/2018/05/02/pope-francis-takes-over-the-knights-of-malta/

Zagami has told this writer he has eaten human fetuses and participated in occult ceremonies to “summon demons” and other entities.  I suppose that it is this “tradition” that he is defending.  He also said Christianity was “a religion for the slaves.” So the “Christianity” he is defending is the continued enslavement of humanity.

In any case, these changes are not just connected to religion, but are also intimately linked to the highest levels of world finance and power.  This is because the Vatican secretly controls most world governments and leaders by giving them a choice between “lead or silver,” i.e. assassination or a large deposit in their name at the Vatican bank, confirmed by P2 Freemasons and other sources.

On this front, Vatican #3 and person in charge of Finance, Cardinal George Pell, has been removed from power ostensibly because he faces criminal charges for covering up sex abuse in the church.  Coincidentally, his trial began on May 2, the same day the Knights of Malta elected their new leader.
https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2018/may/01/who-is-cardinal-george-pell-and-what-is-he-accused-of

This means that the apex of Western finance, the essence of the Deep State, is under new management.

These changes coincide with a huge move by Pope Francis to use high-level financial instruments to finance …
