Mandelson & Rothschild: Running England Into The Ground

I just had a visitor, Paul, who came all the way from Indiana to enjoy the view here so I didn’t have time to post a story.  Today, we go visit our friends in England to see what Lord Mandelson is doing with his banking buddy, Rothschild.  And we discuss how Rothschild and his fellow Bilderberg buddies are sticking to the free trade ideology and why they do this.

Study: Your Brain Thinks Money Is A Drug : NPR

If you’ve ever thought of money as a drug, you may be more right than you know. New research shows that counting money — just handling the bills — can make things less painful….

. …The experiments were conducted by a colleague of Vohs’ in China. Students came into the lab and were told they would be participating in a test of finger dexterity. One group was given a pile of Chinese currency to count. Another group was given blank pieces of paper to count. . Then, some of the students were asked to put their fingers in bowls of water heated to 122 degrees Fahrenheit and rate how uncomfortable it felt.

.

Another one of the many strange puzzles as to how our brains work.  Money is a mental construct.  It does nothing, directly.  We don’t wear it, eat it or have sex with it.  But it is used as a means to obtain these things.  Since it is purely mental, it isn’t surprising that it causes many physical and emotional changes.  For example, a baby doesn’t know anything about money.  Paper money is no different from paper trash.

.

An adult recognizes food as edible and eats it.  Babies recognize food very early on, too, and hunger for it.  Indeed, power plays between infants and adults are often conducted over this food business.  Babies quickly learn that mothers are anxious for them to eat something.  If they live in a world with lots of food, the baby is never really hungry.  So the mother urges the infant to eat more and begs the baby to eat and displays anxiety and distress if the baby won’t eat.

.

So babies, not suffering from true hunger, will happily refuse to eat and then gets to see the mother go into distress and this increased the attention she pays the baby.  Thus, a cycle of misplaced mental energy is born.  Small children are introduced to the concept of money early on and often are very smitten with this concept of getting pieces of paper and then handing these off to other people and getting real things, in return.

.

The concept of constant credit is even more insidious.  Instead of doing chores for pieces of paper or coins, the child is given credit which is totally invisible.  That is, the exchange point in the mind is missing.  The child sees something, wants it, uses the credit card and gets it.  One doesn’t even have to do labor to get the credit. Insidiously, the credit card companies ceased cutting credit when it is overdrawn because this gives them an excuse to charge usurious rates.  So this disconnect is encouraged.

.

What I am trying to say is, the human brain is using increasingly disconnected systems of ‘rewards’ that our simian brains can’t handle.  There MUST be an emotional connection between the mind and the emotions.  We have culturally accepted the concept of paper money giving us emotional pleasure because we anticipate using this to please ourselves.  We are even more pleased by our credit cards which allow us to buy things without the commitment of labor at the front end of the relationship.

.

We are even pleased about having virtually no limit on credit.  This pleases reckless people a great deal.  Even knowing they are too deep in debt, they will solicit more credit cards so they can spend more and each time they get more credit, their credit rating drops.  Which is also invisible.  Instead of fixing things, the spendthrift seeks more and more outlets for credit.  As this drops their credibility, they devote even more hours, seeking more credit.

.

I would bet this experiment, if conducted with credit cards, would show even greater ability to suppress pain.  And remember: pain is a WARNING SYSTEM.  It evolved not to torment us but to PROTECT us.  Pain forces organisms to change course or run from danger.  Leprosy is an ancient disease which cuts the transmission of pain data to the brain so people lose body parts due to smashing them into things, etc.  We need pain to guide us through the physical world.  It is important feedback.

Now, off to England:

‘I’m not in charge,’ says returning Mandelson – Times Online

Lord Mandelson insisted he was “not in charge of the country” as he arrived back from holiday in Corfu today to manage the day-to-day business of government. .

The Business Secretary was afforded luxury treatment as he was ushered through Gatwick Airport in private after arriving on an easyJet flight from Greece. .

But as he emerged from the airport VIP lounge, he said that speculation that he was coming back to take charge was “absolute nonsense”. He told reporters: “Look, I’m not in charge of the country – the Prime Minister is.” .

Downing Street was forced to deny last week that Lord Mandelson was running the country via his BlackBerry after he was pictured still enjoying the hospitality of Nathaniel Rothschild even though Harriet Harman – who was before him on the No 10 duty rota – had left on her holidays. The message was that Mr Brown remained in charge.

.

The pseudo royalty in the Western ‘democracies’ have completely removed themselves from ordinary life.  They sail in expensive yachts and vacation in expensive villas.  The super rich host them all the time, pet them and share their bounty with elected and unelected officials.  These people, in turn, know they are servants of these super rich people and if they want a life of luxury with little pain, they cling to their masters and will use all their arts and skills to fool voters into thinking, they are the ones who matter, not the super rich.

.

It seems no one in the government in England is really all that interested in running things.  They are in this for themselves.  Tory or Labour, both parties are now run by self-interested people who know who really matters: the super rich.  They know that if they service the rich, they will be elevated out of the teeming masses.  They won’t have to use public transportation, public hospitals, public schools (in England, the private schools are called public schools….so we will assume I mean, schools where the parents pay fees and one has to have connections to get into) and they will get to move in the higher circles of society and maybe marry their children into the Old Guard Families.

.

Under the surface boils a lot of public anger.  In good times, if all the ministers ran off to the Mediterranean Sea villas and yachts to wine and dine with their masters, no one cared much.  But when millions are facing economic destruction and the politicians begin talking about cutting social services, the sight of these ‘leaders’ trundling off to roll in the surf with the super rich international financiers is infuriating.

.

The fact that these corrupt politicians don’t even care to bother covering up their true alliances is amusing.  One would think, with people literally screaming for heads, they would be a tad more careful to pretend to side with the struggling masses, not imperiously ordering everyone around or displaying dismaying confusion as to who is even running the country!

Jacob Rothschild, 4th Baron Rothschild – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

He is a shareholder in Rothschild Continuation Holdings, the Swiss-based holding company for the Rothschild interests which has positions in many of the family businesses, including the bank N M Rothschild & Sons. After resigning from the bank, Jacob Rothschild went on to found J. Rothschild Assurance Group (now St. James’s Place) with Sir Mark Weinberg in 1991…..

.

… His main business interests now are RIT Capital Partners plc, an investment trust company with net assets under management of £1700m (Aug 2008), of which he is Chairman, Spencer House Capital Management LLP founded with Richard Horlick (formerly CIO of Schroders), and Spencer House Partners, a “mini merchant bank” headed by Rothschild and Ronald Cohen of Apax Partners.

.

He also retains many other venture capital and property interests. On 17 November 2003, he took up his post as deputy chairman of Sky (TV). From his headquarters in St James’s Place in London, Jacob Rothschild has cultivated an influential set of clients, business associates and friends who have extended his interests far beyond the normal scope of a banker. He was a close personal friend of Diana, Princess of Wales and maintains strong personal and business links with Henry Kissinger.

. His country estate has been a regular venue for visiting heads of state including Presidents Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton. Margaret Thatcher received French President François Mitterrand there at a summit in 1990. He hosted the European Economic Round Table conference in 2002, attended by such figures as James Wolfensohn, former president of the World Bank, Nicky Oppenheimer, Warren Buffett and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

.

In 2003 Rothschild came under scrutiny when Russian oil industrialist Mikhail Khodorkovsky’s shares in YUKOS passed to him under a deal they concluded prior to Khodorkovsky’s arrest.

.

This Rothschild is also a major figure in the Bilderberg gang.  He invites all the movers and shakers to come visit him and kiss his ring which they do, in terrifying numbers.  Being a true internationalist, he lures in national leaders and insures they operate on his own behalf, not on the behalf of their native states.  The disconnect of nearly all leaders from their own countries is immense.

.

This is why the internationalists are immensely annoyed with Putin and Hu. Both leaders are nationalists and will do ruthless business with the internationalist financial powers but won’t fall into the trap of becoming the servitors of these people.

Peter Mandelson – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In October 1999, Mandelson was appointed Secretary of State for Northern Ireland, replacing Mo Mowlam. In his very first speech in the post he mistakenly referred to himself as the “Secretary of State for Ireland.” During his tenure he oversaw the creation of the devolved legislative assembly and power-sharing executive, and reform of the police service.

.

On 16 October 2000 it was reported that Geoffrey Robinson, the Labour MP, “accused Peter Mandelson of lying to the Commons about the home loan affair that cost both of them their Government jobs.”

. …On 22 November 2004, Mandelson became Britain’s European Commissioner for Trade. On 22 April 2005, The Times revealed that Mandelson had spent the previous New Year’s Eve on the yacht of Paul Allen, the co-founder of Microsoft, which is at the centre of a major EU investigation, although it did not allege impropriety.

. During the summer of 2008, Mandelson had a widely publicised argument with Nicolas Sarkozy, the President of France. Sarkozy criticised Mandelson’s support for free trade and accused him of being responsible for the no vote in the Irish referendum on the Treaty of Lisbon. Mandelson protested that his negotiating position in world trade talks had been weakened by Sarkozy’s comments and that he would stand up for himself.

. …In a reshuffle on 5 June 2009, Lord Mandelson was appointed to the honorific office of First Secretary of State. He was also appointed to the position of Lord President of the Council. It was also announced that he would continue in his role as Business Secretary, with expanded powers. A committee list published by Downing Street on 21 July 2009 revealed that Mandelson is a member of 35 of the 43 Cabinet committees and subcommittees.

.

Mandelson is on many committees because his masters have many concerns.  Labour won elections by ceasing to be Labour.  New Labour was all for ‘free trade’.  The internationalist financiers are the main driving force behind ‘free trade’.  They insist on it.  They get annoyed if any politician comes into power riding an anti-free trade movement.  They will move heaven and earth (including assassinations and accidents that are not accidental) to insure no anti-free trade politician survives to contest their grip on trade ideology.

.

It is no accident that most media outlets run by rich people support free trade and attack anyone who doesn’t support this.  Just as the media steadfastly refuses to talk about the Bilderberg group except to joke about how silly it is to talk about it, for example.  This is a true, honest-to-god conspiracy.

.

People who try to understand these conspiracies get all entangled in a web of sometimes totally ridiculous stuff, worrying about these guys killing everyone with flu shots, for example (truly, one of the stupidest analysis of what these conspiracies are about, if there ever was one!).  We have to figure out what is really going on and this is nearly impossible if we run into headwinds of hysteria based on nearly no information that makes any scientific sense at all.

.

On the other hand, the fact that these people support international free trade that ravages a number of important nation/states, this is truly and honestly not only a conspiracy but a very deadly attack on sovereignty of these states!  Eating healthy foods won’t fix things if one has no job, not property and no hope for anything except the life of a serf!  Vaccinations are not a loss of sovereignty, the ravages of free trade is a loss of sovereignty where it matters the most.

.

Nothing on earth would amuse these rich guys more than to see armies of people running in circles, screaming about how modern medicine is a secret plot to kill all of them.  Although people may think, they look smart and clever, while doing this.  It isn’t.  It makes people look ridiculous.

.

And is a major distraction.  One doesn’t have to believe in fairies in order to understand mushroom rings.  Virtually none of the super rich have been even slightly touched by the global crash in international trade and finance.  They bailed themselves out, at our expense.  They also outwitted the anti-Bilderberg groups via the very simple tactic of supporting modern medical systems and offering to continue doing this.

.

They can point out how the ‘conspiracy’ people are lunatics, why, they want to kill everyone by persuading people that vaccinations are bad!  Sensible people then look at the people talking about the Bilderberg business and say to themselves, ‘Those people are barking mad!’  And once again, the true conspiracy slips the leash and dashes off into the bushes.

.

This is probably why my crazy site may go down, in history, as one of the more sane places for analysis of these interconnected events.  Despite readers being extremely angry that I don’t rush off into all sorts of strange byways, barking about this or that, the choices I make here are well thought out.  I dare to talk about the religious underpinnings of economic systems and talk about this in colorful and often, infuriating ways because the true lesson we must all figure out is, the dangers of human-created financial systems which are not directly connected with the natural eating/sleeping/sex systems of living organisms.

.

Back to Mandelson and his Master—after eating and drinking with his owner, the attack dog flies back to London and launches attacks on the right.  The right wing in Britain has tapped into working discontent with the elimination of most industrial jobs.  The Tories will be forced to raise taxes and cut services.  But anyone who takes over bankrupt England will have to do this.  England shot its wad with free trade and now has virtually no native-controlled industries left.  And is running budget and trade deficits all over the place.

Mandelson launches withering putdown of George Osborne | Politics | The Guardian

On his third day deputising for the prime minister, the business secretary mocks the Conservatives’ claim to be the party of progressives, and attacks the leadership over its plans for spending cuts, the environment and its position in Europe. .

Writing in today’s the Guardian, Mandelson describes Osborne’s claim in a recent speech that the “torch of progressive politics” has passed to the Tories as “audacious” and “political cross-dressing” that will not convince voters. .

Reprising the chosen strategy he shares with Gordon Brown, Mandelson casts the Tories as the party of cuts and says that the shadow chancellor’s talk of debt reduction would mean a public spending squeeze that would “eat into frontline delivery and investment in growth”.

.

The international financiers wanted to use England and the Queen’s private island chains as a pirate operation.  They knew if they attached themselves to one of the oldest central banks in the world, they could access the credit and good will of this central bank as a way of capitalizing themselves if they took on losses.  It worked like a charm.

..

But they are also sucking dry all this credit and goodwill.  The US is a better source of gain except the populace is more unruly and thus, dangerous.  The media/entertainment systems have a lot of work to do, to keep this population under control.

.

The last sentence of the article above is one that should ring alarm bells in all Brits: Mandelson and his boss, Rothschild, do NOT want to reduce Britain’s debt.  Debt for bankers is wealth!  Money owed to bankers goes on the ‘asset’ side of the ledger, money we put in banks to gain interest are ‘debits’.  So we have to keep in mind, what they want is exactly opposite of what we want.

.

Mandelson’s comment about ‘eating frontline delivery and investment in growth’ sounds like something Rothschild drilled into his servant’s brain.  What, pray tell, is Britain growing?  An industrial base?  HAHAHA.  What Britain is growing is exactly what the US is also growing: DEBTS.  And the ‘frontline delivery’ system is our own national credit being used up by this debt creation process.

Benmosche Said to Start AIG Tenure With Croatian Trip (Update1) – Bloomberg.com

Robert Benmosche, the chief executive officer of American International Group Inc., plans to spend part of his first month leading the insurer in Croatia on vacation, according to two people familiar with the situation. .

Benmosche, 65, who started yesterday as CEO and president of the bailed-out company, will leave for about two weeks, according to one of the people, who declined to be identified because the plans were private. Mark Herr, an AIG spokesman, said the New York-based firm wouldn’t comment on CEO travel.

.

See how serious these gnomes are? They think this is all a lark.  As politicians try to pretend they are worried, they also are not very worried.  Rothschild and the Chinese bankers let our political chattering class know that credit will flow to US debt systems.  At ZIRP rates, to boot.  We tied up an immense amount of our public credit, bailing out AIG and the international bankers.

.

You can bet, Rothschild will dine and wine Benmosche.  They will have many a laugh.  Benmosche knows he is a hit man.  The Derivatives Beast ate up AIG but if this were allowed to continue, it would eat up every single international banker.  And the only way to stop this process is to keep AIG propped up, no matter what.  A succession of hit men will be put in charge, each for less than a year, in this attempt at fending off triggering the Derivatives Beast.

.

Each one knows this is a farce.  Not one will discuss the Derivatives Beast.  Since the Beast is the biggest financial bubble on earth, bar none, since it created the immense money flow to the international financiers, it will continue, come hell or high water.

Banks profiteering on mortgages with record gap between borrowing and lending rate – Telegraph

Last night senior politicians and campaigners called on banks, many of which have been propped up with billions of pounds of taxpayers’ money, to “play their part” by lowering borrowing costs.

.

Today Mervyn King, the Governor of the Bank, is to unveil his latest quarterly predictions for the economy. He is widely expected to say that lenders are failing to pass on billions of pounds of government support to consumers and small businesses.

.

The Bank’s statistics show that the average two-year fixed rate for new mortgage customers climbed to 4.46 per cent during July, with the average five-year fixed deal hitting 5.7 per cent.

.

According to analysis by Michael Saunders, the chief UK economist at Citigroup, the difference between these rates and the rate banks charge each other is at a record margin. Banks are making a full 2 percentage points of profit on fixed rate mortgages – the first time this has happened, the Bank’s data indicated. Two years ago, lenders made 0.1 percentage points profit on a five-year deal.

.

The record profit on fixed-rate mortgages is hitting an increasing number of home owners and home buyers.

.

The entire point of ZIRP is to capitalize the international bankers.  They, in turn, will recapitalize themselves by increasing the spread between the ‘official’ rates and what they can get away with.  This record margin has been a huge boon for them.  They get the goodies and we get high rates.  This is lovely for them and horrible for the rest of us. So, why doesn’t the government raise interest rates so they are the same as the rates these bankers are charging everyone?

.

HAHAHA.  Money is magical!  Faux cures for viral disease are not magical, they are wishful thinking.  But the creation of money is very much, magical.  This is because it is human-created.  It is made up inside our own heads.  Whereas, viruses are alien life forms out to colonize our bodies and even kill us.  They evolved on the outside and try hard as hell to get inside of us while money is the exact opposite.

.

Germs are their own agents.  They use evolution as their chief weapons.  Money, on the other hand, all finances are internal systems that follow the contours of our own complicated brains.  The rhythms and patterns we see in charts and graphs make financial systems look rational.  This is because nature puts limits on our mental constructs.

.

That is, we are forbidden to exist in either infinity or zero.  We cannot be All or Nothing at the same time.  Or individually except in one hideous place: death.  Humans are herd animals but unlike herd animals, we retain a great deal of our ape ancestral isolationistic mental processes.  That is, zebras and wildebeest would congregate in immense herds.  Chimpanzees and gorillas roam about in small family groups, clashing with other small family groups.  No mass interactions possible.

.

Humans, on the other hand, evolved following herds which moved in great masses.  This is what early domestication was all about: herding animals.  Animal herders who understood how to become part of a herd passed their genes more in the gene pool than hunter-gathering families.  Which is why we congregate in cities and love going to mass events like concerts and sports, screaming in unison.  And why we form immense armies to fight each other.

Mandelson Says Stimulus Saved Jobs – NYTimes.com

Britain’s fiscal stimulus measures have saved at least 500,000 jobs during the recession, Business Secretary Peter Mandelson said on Wednesday before the release of figures expected to show unemployment surging.

.

Mandelson said government help for employers coupled with theBank of England’s quantitative easing programme and five percent cut in interest rates had softened the recession’s impact on jobs. .

However, Mandelson said he was worried about the damage caused by the recession to Britain’s economic fundamentals and its potential for future growth. .

“The Treasury estimates that there would have been at least, probably far in excess of, 500,000 jobs lost in the recession had it not been for the government’s and the Bank of England’s intervention,” he told BBC radio. .

The level of unemployment would have been “much, much higher” without the intervention, he added. .

The ILO jobless rate, due to be released at 9:30 a.m., is expected to rise to 7.7 percent from 7.6 percent, according to analysts’ forecasts.

.

The one area that had the greatest growth of jobs during the bubble were things connected with real estate speculation and banking/investment houses.  These jobs have now vanished.  The free trade bankers have utterly decimated native industries.  Dropping interest rates won’t bring back industries so long as the bankers who control these rates want ‘free trade.’

.

When low interest rates are attached to free trade, the workers lose.  Low rates will not create one single job outside of the real estate/banking industries.  Which is what caused the bubbles in the first place.  Protectionism was given a bad name when we know the very word itself is all about saving something.  Protecting oneself is smart.  Protecting one’s domestic industrial base is a virtue.  And so the Bilderberg gang has to convince us that if we protect ourselves, we will all die.  Which is just arrant nonsense.

    I continue to be amazed, awed, and wowed at the variety of things you know about.

  2. RobG

    Well of course The Onion explored the topic of outsourcing already. Not much more you can add:

  3. Yep – Its obvious now.

  4. emsnews

    Very funny video, Rob! :)

  5. I watched it all the way to just about the end…..

    So funny it hurts.

  6. John

    Spot on Elaine.

    While conspiracy theorists babble incoherently, pointless, paranoid and defeatist, the enemy revel in the confusion and disorganisation.

    And you are correct regarding the forced choices of the collaborationist parties. For this reason I hope for a strong Conservative victory here in the UK to bring clarity and a proper polarisation of society.

  7. emsnews

    When there are two parties, they are not yin or yang but all mushed up, barely different from each other. The outer fringes are what pulls the two central parties outwards.

  8. Igneous

    Robg I actually know some one who considered doing this. There is a book I think is called the ’24 hour work week’ that talks about this.

  9. Two Parties

    Europe is ruled by two parties; the radical left of socialism/communism fame and the radical right of fascism. This hegelian dialectic is used to crush sovereign nations between the vice of the left/right manufactured factions.

    In the US the dialectic is slightly different; the CIAA controls the right and the Staate Department the left. While the right gallops around the world funding radical right initiatives like contraas, the left slowly cultivates the coommunist countries like Chinaa.

    When I look back over the brilliant writings at this blog I had a flash of insight that the author’s family contains the same dialectic conflict with the father on the right and the author on the left.

    The contents of this blog match essentially 100% with the staate department party line, with lots of creativity added in. They have good health benefits and retirement plan.

  10. nah

    US citizens are fat, stoopid, spoiled, and over rewarded… and the chinese are hardworking corporate ladder machines…
    .
    its all total bullshit carried by the MEDIA
    .
    but they do it anyways while we fight WWIII nearly alone, certainly without the chinese… and we put banks on as the highest order of learning
    .
    tell me the swiss rothschild banks dont have the feds/congress ear directly and by 3rd partys… we shovel money into their banking systems, hell the whole world…
    .
    so US citizens can choose a path of public self deprication….
    .

    .
    we service our masters

  11. hardrock

    Elaine,

    Great piece. Well written with many salient points.

    When will any of us figure it out?….the money system is at the root of nearly all of the evils and misery in this world…including the population bomb, which in turn despoils the land, the ocean and native peoples along with their traditions which we ‘moderns’ deride out of ignorance.

    Albert Schweitzer tells it all and where it will end. Few know of the power and depth of this man’s thoughts. He has been eradicated from the public school system and is marginalized in higher education. He was one of the voices of the last hundred years who was totally ignored……at great expense, the cost of which will unfold in dramatic fashion beginning in just a few months from now…if not weeks.

  12. emsnews

    I have a book by Schweizer about the history of the Viola da Gamba (in German). He was a man of varied interests.
