Bank Bailout In Italy & A Problem Looming Between The…

Banksters

Mr J.K. sent this article about the bailout of Banco Monte dei Paschi di Sienna in Italy and some other banks, to the tune of a mere twenty-five and a half billion dollars, mere pocket change. But there’s something else looming in this article and it provokes some high octane speculation of the day. Here’s the article:

Italy swoops in to save another bank leaving taxpayers on the hook for over $25 billion

In my opinion, the central story here is not the bailout of troubled Venetian banks (some stories never change, do they?) but Italy’s, and Europe’s, and one of the world’s oldest, banks in continual operation since the Renaissance, the Banco Monte dei Paschi di Sienna, and one statement in particular caught my interest, and I suspect behind its careful “un-detailed” words lies a huge story which one might summarize with the word “cover-up”:

Finance Minister Pier Carlo Padoan announced late Tuesday that the government had received approval from the European Commission to pump 5.4 billion euros into Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena (BMPS) in exchange for the lender undertaking a major restructuring overhaul. (Emphasis added)

And, one paragraph away, there’s this:

Toxic assets are at the heart of the bank’s demise and its plan includes the intention to sell down 28.6 billion euros of gross non-performing loans (NPLs), of which 26.1 billion euros will be securitized (converted into marketable securities).

Toxic assets, non-performing loans, in a major western bank!?!?

So it isn’t so!

Then, later, we read this:

Indeed, there could also be an opportunity for brave investors, suggests Surry, if Italy follows the path trodden by Spain which has seen its banking sector shrink from around 70 lenders to closer to a dozen since the financial crisis.

“Potentially BMPS is a consolidation play because ultimately the bank will be clean and definitely there is consolidation to take place in Italy from the 400-plus institutions down to probably 150,” he offered.

So we have:

1) The bailout of Banco dei Paschi di Sienna;

2) Which received approval for a bailout in exchange for “restructuring” from the European Commission, which is now, apparently, in charge of what banks the Italian government gets to bail out, and the conditions under which it can do so;

3) Which restructuring presages a consolidation of lenders throughout the Italian banking system, resulting in fewer “lenders/banks”.

I don’t know about you, but gee, this pattern looks a little familiar.

There’s a great big huge elephant in the room, however, that the article is not talking about. In fact, one might say there’s not only an elephant, but a rhinoceros in the room. The elephant? Deutsche Bank and its relation to the Banco dei Paschi di Sienna, as covered in previous blogs on this site. And the rhinoceros? Italian prosecutions of the elephant.  Noteworthy here is the entire absence of any mention of either one throughout the entire article, and that raises my suspicion meter into the red zone, and with it, some unusual and very high octane speculations.

What disturbs me here is that any action by the European Commission in this matter should be viewed as a conflict of interest, since the EU is largely a Franco-German union, with everyone else along for the ride as Frau Merkel gets to play Charlemagne (or perhaps, Karlamagne, or Karlin or Kaiserin, or something), a role she clearly appears to be enjoying. But why would the European Commission have reason to step in? I suspect, strongly, that the real bank being protected here, and being bailed out, is Deutsche Bank and its own high exposure to “toxic assets”, some of them via its entanglement with the Banco dei Paschi, and that the “restructing” of the Banco dei Paschi di Sienna might, in reality, be an attempt to disguise things and prevent them from emerging into public light as Italy is openly debating leaving the European Union (Charlemagne, Inc., or perhaps better put, Charlemagne A.G.). If so, then a disturbing pattern is emerging here: using national banking crises, the European Commission is establishing the conditions to “restructure” national banking systems according to its own whims, and to make them subject to the European Central Bank in Frankfurt. In the process, more will be swept under the rug.

And that means the can is simply being kicked down the road, for they have no genuine solutions.

Let’s hope the Italians look at this whole thing much more closely.

See you on the flip side…

Pump & Dump 2.0

Source: GizaDeathStar.com
Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
June 1, 2017

Remember the whole derivatives mortgage-fraud pump-and-dump scheme that made the banksters lots of money, until the housing pricing bubble burst, and the too-big-to-fail banks were bailed out by the too-cowardly-to-jail Congress? If you don’t, then you haven’t been paying attention, and especially haven’t been paying attention to Catherine Austin Fitts, who has been writing, talking, and warning about this method of deep-state fraud and theft for years. For us, this has represented one aspect of the whole financial mechanism for a vast deep state black projects and covert operations apparatus.

And its real-world operation has been grounded in housing and mortgage fraud market manipulation, all accomplished by robo-signing, document fraud, asset fraud, ledger manipulations, you name it, it’s there.

But I’ve often wondered, if we’re looking at the whole picture… after all, housing is, for most of us, our biggest life purchase.

But what is the second biggest?

Our automobiles (which, in some cases, a new one costs almost as much as an older house, so there’s no much difference).

And that, of course, raises the question, why not use easy credit, pump-and-dump and foreclose and resell methods on automobile loans as well? Granted it won’t be nearly as big an income and fee-generator as mortgages, but, what the heck, if you’re a bankster, then just throw those auto-loans into the derivative bundles along with credit default swaps on mortages, and voila, you’ve just expanded your money-harvesting mechanism tremendously. And if you’re a deep state finance and funding person shuffling money to this or that hidden project or covert op, you need all you can get, so why not?

Now, until this week, I kept these high octane speculations to myself, because I didn’t see any evidence that something like this might indeed be going on…

…until, that is, Mr. D.S.M. sent me this little gem from our friends at Zero Hedge:

UBS Hints At Rampant Auto Lending Fraud; “It’s Not Just Smoke And Mirrors Anymore”

Before we get into this article, please note that UBS is, of course, the Union Bank of Switzerland, which readers here will recognize as one of those banks having some alleged dubious associations.  So, as they say, consider the source.

With that in mind, consider the first four paragraphs of the article, and particularly the second one:

For months we’ve written about the imminently doomed auto bubble in the U.S., spurred in no small part by an unprecedented relaxation of underwriting standards by banks that would put even the shenanigans of the 2008 mortgage crisis to shame.  From stretched out lending terms to promotional interest rates, auto lenders have increasingly played every trick necessary to get those incremental new car buyers into the most expensive car their monthly budgets could possibly absorb.

That said, in recent weeks there has been growing concern that consumers, auto dealers and/or banks have been going beyond simply relaxing underwriting standards and have instead been forced to commit outright fraud in order to attract that incremental auto volume growth.  As UBS Strategist Matthew Mish told Bloomberg, “something is definitely going on under the hood…it’s not just smoke and mirrors anymore.”

The evidence is growing. First, the explosion of technology makes gaining access to information to improve credit scores very simple. Internet searches for ‘credit score’ are at record levels. Second, our survey finds 21% of auto loan borrowers admitted to some form of inaccuracy in their loan applications. Third, there is growing concern reported among auto lenders around fraud, which is the extreme case of this behavior.

Overall, the explosion and adoption of technology makes gaining access to “proven” methods for improving credit scores extremely simple. To this point, the popularity of internet searches for “credit score” has been rising consistently and is near peak post-crisis levels (Figure 7). Similarly, our survey finds that 21% of auto loan borrowers admitted to some inaccuracy in their application for non-mortgage related debt (auto, student or credit card loan). More concerning, this trend may be systemic as 29% of other consumer loan (i.e., student loan, credit card) borrowers acknowledged some form of inaccuracy in their applications (Figure 8).

As I speculated prior to quoting these paragraphs, throw in this auto-loan fraud into the mix of derivatives bundles and one has the makings of another financial crisis which, by Zero Hedge’s lights, could be almost as big as the mortgage-housing price collapse of 2007-2008. In a certain sense, this could be far worse, since auto dealers, RV dealers, and so on, carry millions of dollars of inventory on their lots, and, as an overhead expense, insurance and in many cases, security.

Now imagine sudden falling prices as the bubble bursts, at the same time as a lack of cash and… well, you get the idea.

But there’s something lurking in the middle of all of this that I find profoundly disturbing, and it’s at the center of today’s high octane speculation. Notice how much of the fraud is being enabled, not so much by the internet, as by internet-derived or -sourced or -manipulated information. Imagine, now, for a moment, this is combined with hacking activities. A customer comes into an auto-dealer, asks for financing on a brand shiny new Mercedes or Cadillac SUV, but has already manipulated his or her credit score, and even managed (if they’re really good) to post a few extra thousand dollar blips into their bank account for good measure. The bank or auto-dealer then uses the same internet to verify or corroborate the application information. In short, the electronic market – from finance to loans – has(as Catherine Fitts has so often said) no integrity, and being thus utterly divorced from human reality, is subject to potentially massive corruption, while at the same time distorting price(to the buyer) and risk (to the seller or loan-originator), the most fundamental information in any economy or single transaction. (In this regard, ask yourself, why should today’s modern new car cost almost as much as an older house? Answer: you’re paying for all that fraud, and extra overhead it requires the automakers and dealers to carry.) Now, extend this corruption to wide-spread scale, and pretend you’re an auto-maker, or auto-dealer: would you rather do business with electronic blips, or with someone who walks in, and puts actual cash into your hands for a full payment, or partial down payment?

As the corruption and fraud spread, so too will the revolt, and this, I suspect, is also the reason many states in the USA are now passing bullion depository legislation, and resolutions underlining that the only constitutional money authorized under the US constitution is that made by Congress whose value is regulated in bullion.

Iceland, Debt Jubilee & Media Blackouts


Source: GizaDeathStar.com
Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
May 10, 2017

When was the last time you heard about Iceland?

Remember them? The people in the small country on a large volcanic rock in the northern Atlantic Ocean that rounded up their bankers, through them in jail, and declared a debt jubilee?

I have to admit, that I haven’t heard about them recently either, until Mr. B.H. sent along the following article, and there are a couple of things that caught my eye and fuel my imagination. As always, my approach here is “assume this story is true” for the sake of some high octane speculation of the day:

All Debts Of Island’s Population Are Forgiven By The Government

Now, of course, the first thing that caught my eye was the fact that, apparently, there’s almost a complete news media blackout in the USSA by the corporate controlled media, and of course by implication, the major search engines:

As good as an approach that this is it is now being alleged that the US Rothschild Controlled Media has apparently completely blacked out any news involving Iceland’s debt forgiveness. Attempting to search Iceland’s mortgage debt forgiveness only leads to about 359,000 search results with none of them being from the United States. Neither major or minor news outlets mention a single word about Iceland’s decision.

Now, of course, we don’t know for certain how much, if any, debt the Rottenchild network held in Iceland, but we take the point: someone somewhere doesn’t want anyone looking at Iceland. We all know why, for I suspect few readers of this website would contemplate the picture of a Darth Soros, or a Rockefailure, or a Rottenchild behind bars with anything less than a smile on their face. The same, I suspect, holds true for the current crop of “associates”, the Geitners, Yellens, and Draghis of the world. Probably, someone, somewhere, is leaning over a table with their beer or coffee talking to someone else and wondering how these people can be Dominique Strauss-Kahned.

The idea of a debt jubilee itself is slowly and steadily gaining strength. And it’s an idea worth considering, for recall, its origins stem from Mesopotamia (as I outlined in Babylon’s Banksters), when private debts grew to the point that they could not be repaid. This led to the jubilee year and the ceremony of the “Breaking of the Tablets”, when the king would ceremonially break the tablets containing contracts and debts. The reason? When debts could no longer be repaid, people simply left the country to start over somewhere else.  Now, however, in the wake of the bubble-bailout cycle that culminated in 2008, we’re told that the derivatives alone represented over 14-17 quadrillion dollars, several times more than the domestic product of the entire planet. It’s a nice way for the Rockefailures Soroses and Rottenchilds to enslave several generations.

But there was another statement toward the end of the article that caught my eye, and that fuels today’s high octane speculation. It was this:
The US government apparently owns 96% of bad loans, while major banking only owns about 3% of bad loans. This poor allocation leads to US government guaranteeing to collapse, while big banks stay rich and do not have to worry about ever foreclosing on themselves.

I couldn’t help but think of former Housing and Urban Development assistant secretary Catherine Austin Fitts’ model of rolling out the new financial system, which she has described as the “financial coup d’etat,” wherein all the liabilities were moved off the books of the banks, and into the public (government) sector, while all the assets were moved from the latter to the former.

Nifty, huh?

Ok, so what? Where’s the high octane speculation in this? Well, try this on for size: imagine you want to sell the idea of a completely cashless society (which of course, really isn’t cashless, it’s merely a way of protecting your currency issuance central banking cartel). How would one sell the idea? Through a debt jubilee: use our system of blockchain or virtual currency, and all  your debts are forgiven. Only those continuing to use cash will have their debts retained. The “reset jubilee” button coupled to cashlessness… really, if one thinks about it, it’s an interesting way to get rid of all that “bad paper” on the ledgers, and I wouldn’t put it past them.

Yet Another Banker Jumps…

Banksters

Source: GizaDeathStar.com
Dr. Joseph P. Farrell Ph.D.
April 4, 2017

The sad list of bankers taking walks off of rooftops continues to grow, this time with the death of Charles W. Murphy. Many people shared this story this week (and a big thank you to them all), and at first glance, there’s “nothing unusual” in the story:

Partner At Paulson & Company Jumps To His Death In Midtown Manhattan

Toward the end of this article, it is suggested that Mr. Murphy may have been experiencing financial difficulties, hinting that this may have been a motivation for his death, as he was also apparently being treated for depression:

It appears that at least part of Murphy’s troubles have been financial: a parking attendant at a nearby garage told the New York Post that Murphy’s wife, Annabella , crashed their Honda Odyssey last summer but could not afford to fix it. ‘She didn’t even have enough money to pay for the damage,’ the attendant said.

Murphy’s first wife, former Heather Kerzner, got married to hotel billionaire Sol Kerzner after the pair split. They were married for 11 years before their marriage ended in divorce.

According to the Daily News, Murphy was being treated for depression before his suicide.

But then comes the admission of a connection to the collapse of convicted financial fraudster Bernie Madoff, and, incidentally a connection to Morgan Stanley:

Murphy is now the fourth person connected to Madoff to commit suicide in the years following the Ponzi scheme scandal.  French aristocrat Rene Thierry Magon De La Villehuchet was found dead in 2008 just after the news broke. His AIA Group lost $1.5 billion. Ex-U.S. Army major William Foxton, 65, killed himself in 2009. A year later, Madoff’s son Mark was found dead after he hanged himself in his New York apartment.

Murphy was previously a research analyst at Morgan Stanley, and was cohead of the European financial institutions group at Credit Suisse.  He graduated from Harvard Law School and MIT Sloan School of Management according to the Mail.

Making this story even more bizarre, for some reason the unfortunate Mr. Murphy chose a venue that was not far away from his personal apartment, and one that had yet another strange connection:

The Sofitel hotel where Murphy killed himself made headlines in 2011, when French politician and head of the IMF, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, was accused of raping a maid in one of the hotel’s suites. Three months later, all charges were dismissed. In 2012, he settled a lawsuit with the maid.

In all of this I cannot stifle the thought – in spite of the best efforts to make this look like nothing more than a depression-suicide, perhaps brought about by monetary difficulties and depression, and perhaps even depression and/or feelings of guilt for being connected to Bernie Madoff – that there is much more here than meets the eye.  Yes, my “high octane speculation” motor is running in high gear. For one thing, one or maybe even two suicides connected with Madoff I can believe could be written off to feelings of guilt and depression. But four? Bluntly put, this looks to be more like “house cleaning” and “loose end tidying” than anything else.

The question is, why?

One answer is suggested by the following:

Bernard_Madoff

There we read the following paragraph:

On March 12, 2009, Madoff pleaded guilty to 11 federalfelonies and admitted to turning his wealth management business into a massive Ponzi scheme. The Madoff investment scandal defrauded thousands of investors of billions of dollars. Madoff said he began the Ponzi scheme in the early 1990s. However, federal investigators believe the fraud began as early as the mid-1980s[16] and may have begun as far back as the 1970s.[17] Those charged with recovering the missing money believe the investment operation may never have been legitimate.[18] The amount missing from client accounts, including fabricated gains, was almost $65 billion.[19] The Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC) trustee estimated actual losses to investors of $18 billion.[18] On June 29, 2009, Madoff was sentenced to 150 years in prison, the maximum allowed.[20][21]

(Emphasis added)

Stop and ponder that for a moment: Madoff’s scheme, which stole billions of dollars from investors through fraud – may have begun in the 1970s, and perhaps even as far back as the founding of his company in the 1960s. And this raises a very important question: in all that time, no one in the federal regulatory agencies ever found anything suspicious about his activities? It was only uncovered when Madoff’s sons went to the feds and disclosed it, resulting in Madoff’s arrest the very next day? (Let that one sink in for a moment too.) There’s only three ways such an arrest would have happened without a long investigation: either (1) the sons brought absolutely convincing proof with them when they complained to federal authorities, or (2) there may have been a quiet investigation proceeding secretly, and they simply provided the final bit of evidence needed for an arrest, or (3, my own suspicion) Madoff’s operation had proceeded all those years with the connivance and blessing of some faction within the federal government, a faction dispersed throughout various agencies.

Why do I suspect the latter? Because the time frame suggested in the Wikipedia article about the beginning of Madoff’s “operation” the 1980s and 1970s, were the same time period(s) that others have suggested that the vast mortgage fraud pump-and-dump schemes began in federal housing programs; similarly, it was the same time period – the 1980s – that others suggest that a vast financial scheme, involving fraudulent securities and billions of dollars, was concocted by the American “intelligence ‘community'” to wage a fatal economic war on the Soviet Union, a scheme that was also connected to the financial dealings and suspicions many have raised surrounding 9/11 (and don’t forget that Deutsche Bank connection there!).

So the bottom line to my “high octane speculation of the day” is that this death is connected to all the others, for reasons we may never know. Perhaps Mr. Murphy found something and had to be “suicided”, or perhaps he found something so chilling and/or depressing that he took his own life. Or perhaps he knew something that he didn’t even realize the significance of, and was a loose end to be “cleaned up”. But whatever happened, I strongly suspect there’s a much bigger story to all these banker deaths and “suicides”  – particularly in the pattern exhibited over and over, of bankers walking off of rooftops from London to Paris to Hong Kong – than meets the eye.

See you on the flip side…

D. Rockefeller’s Gruesome Legacy

D. Rockefeller’s Gruesome Legacy

F. William Engdahl
March 25, 2017

The death of David Rockefeller, the de facto Patriarch of the American establishment, at age 101, is being greeted by establishment media with praise for his alleged philanthropy. I would like to contribute to a more honest picture of the person.

The Rockefeller American Century

In 1939, along with his four brothers–Nelson, John D. III, Laurance and Winthrop–David Rockefeller and their Rockefeller Foundation financed the top secret War & Peace Studies at the New York Council on Foreign Relations, the most influential private US foreign policy think-tank which also was controlled by the Rockefellers. A collection of American academics gathered even before outbreak of World War II to plan a postwar world empire, what Time-Life insider Henry Luce later called The American Century. They made a blueprint for taking over a global empire from the bankrupt British, but carefully decided to call it not an empire. Rather they called it “spreading democracy, freedom, the American way of free enterprise.”

Their project looked at the geopolitical map of the world and planned how the USA would replace the British Empire as de facto the dominant empire. The creation of the United Nations was a key part. The Rockefeller brothers donated the land in Manhattan for the UN Headquarters (and in the process made billions in the increased prices of the adjoining real estate that they also owned). This is the Rockefeller “philanthropy” method. Every grant donated is calculated to increase family wealth and power.

After the War David Rockefeller dominated US foreign policy and the countless wars in Africa, Latin America, Asia. The Rockefeller faction created the Cold War against the Soviet Union, and NATO in order to keep a reviving Western Europe under American vassal status. How they did so I documented in detail in my book, The Gods of Money. Here I consider several examples of David Rockefeller’s crimes against humanity.

Rockefeller Biology Research: ‘Control the people…’

If philanthropy should be motivated by love of our fellow man, the grants of the Rockefeller Foundation are not. Take medical research. During the period until 1939 and the War, the Rockefeller Foundation financed biological research at the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute in Berlin. It was Nazi eugenics—how to breed a superior race and how to kill off or sterilize those they deemed “inferior.” Rockefeller financed Nazi eugenics. Rockefeller’s Standard Oil also violated US law to secretly supply the Nazi Air Force with scarce fuel during the War. After the War the Rockefeller brothers arranged for leading Nazi scientists involved in ghastly human experiments to be brought to the USA and Canada under sanitized identities to continue their eugenics research. Many worked in the CIA top secret MK-Ultra project.

In the 1950’s the Rockefeller brothers founded the Population Council to advance eugenics, disguised as population research into birth control. The Rockefeller brothers were responsible in the 1970’s for a US Government Top Secret project directed by Rockefeller National Security Adviser Kissinger, NSSM-200 titled, “Implications of Worldwide

Population Growth for US Security and Overseas Interests.” It argued high population growth in developing nations with strategic raw materials like oil or minerals were a US “national security threat” as more population demands national economic growth, using those resources internally (sic!).NSSM-200 made developing world population reduction programs a precondition of US aid. In the 1970s David Rockefeller’s Rockefeller Foundation also financed together with WHO development of a special tetanus vaccine that limited population by making a woman incapable of maintaining a pregnancy, literally going after the human reproductive process itself.

The Rockefeller Foundation created the entire field of genetic manipulation through its ownership of Monsanto Corporation and financing of university biology research to create the “gene cannon” and other techniques to artificially alter gene expression of a given plant. The aim of GMO, since Rockefeller sponsored the disastrous Philippine Golden Rice project, has been to use GMO to control the human and animal food chain. Today more than 90% of all soybeans grown in USA are GMO and more than 80% all corn and cotton. Yet it is not labelled.

‘Control the oil…’

The Rockefeller fortune is based on oil around companies such as ExxonMobil, Chevron and others. Henry Kissinger, David Rockefeller’s political adviser since 1954, was involved in every major Rockefeller project. Kissinger secretly manipulated Middle East diplomacy in 1973 to trigger an Arab OPEC oil embargo.

The Oil Shock of 1973-74 was orchestrated by a secretive organization David Rockefeller created in the 1950s known as Bilderberg Group. In May 1973 David Rockefeller and the heads of the major US and UK oil majors met in Saltsjoebaden, Sweden at the annual Bilderberg Meeting to plan the oil shock. It would be blamed on “greedy Arab oil sheikhs.” It saved the falling US dollar, and made Wall Street banks, including David Rockefeller’s Chase Manhattan, into the world’s largest banks. This author has the “confidential” protocol of that meeting where the price increase strategy is described six months before the Arab-Israeli war. Please see my book, A Century of War, for documentation. In the 1970’s Kissinger summed up David Rockefeller’s world strategy: “If you control the oil, you control entire nations; if you control food, you control the people; if you control money, you control the entire world.”

‘Control the money…’

David Rockefeller was chairman of Chase Manhattan Bank, the family bank. He was responsible for getting Chase Vice President, Paul Volcker, to become President Carter’s Federal Reserve chairman to make the Volcker interest rate shock that again, like the oil shock, saved the falling US dollar and Wall Street bank profits, including Chase Manhattan, at the expense of the world economy.

Volcker’s October 1979 interest rate ‘shock therapy’, backed by Rockefeller, created the 1980’s “Third World Debt Crisis.” Rockefeller and Wall Street used that debt crisis to force state privatizations and drastic national currency devaluations in countries such as Argentina, Brazil, Mexico. Rockefeller and friends such as George Soros then grabbed the crown jewels of Argentina, Brazil, Mexico at dirt cheap prices.

The model was much like the British banks used in the Ottoman Empire after 1881 when they de facto took control of the finances of the Sultan by controlling all tax revenues through the Ottoman Public Debt Administration (OPDA). Rockefeller interests used the 1980s debt crisis to loot much of the indebted Latin America and African countries, using the IMF as their policeman. David Rockefeller was personal friends to some of the more savage military dictators in Latin America including General Jorge Videla in Argentine or Pinochet in Chile, both of whom owed their jobs to CIA coups arranged by then-Secretary of State Henry Kissinger on behalf of Rockefeller family interests in Latin America.

Through organizations such as his Trilateral Commission, Rockefeller was the foremost architect of the destruction of national economies and advancing so-called Globalization, a policy that mainly benefits the largest banks of Wall Street and City of London and select global corporations—the same who are invited members of his Trilateral Commission. Rockefeller created the Trilateral Commission in 1974 and gave his close friend Zbigniew Brzezinski the job of choosing its members in North America, Japan and Europe.

If we speak of an unseen, powerful network some call the Deep State, we might say David Rockefeller saw himself as Patriarch of that Deep State. His true acts deserve to be honestly seen for what they were—misanthropic and not philanthropic.

Book Review: Alien Agenda by Jim Marrs

AlienAgenda
TheBreakaway | BreakawayConciousness
Zy Marquiez
March 21, 2017

Jim Marrs has been putting out high quality work for some time.  Backing his hard work with extensive research of over 30 years experience, Marrs has set the research bar high with books like The Rise Of The Fourth Reich, Rule By Secrecy, Our Occulted History, and Popular Control.  This book is no different.

Alien Agenda – Investigating The Extraterrestrial Presence Among Us is definitely one of the most seminal and top-tier no-nonsense books on UFOs out there.

In a realm of research that that is littered with countless books with not much sourced material, and even more witness and whistleblower testimony, this book is definitely near the top tier.

As a book for someone just getting in, this book is really top notch.  The only book I would recommend more personally would be Richard Dolan’s UFOs For The 21st Century Mind: A Fresh Guide To An Ancient Mystery.

Taking a thorough and methodical approach which is signature in all of his books, Marrs brings the reader along the journey of all things UFOlogy.  Notably, this book covers a wide breadth of the information within the UFO field.  From issues with NASA, to The Moon, Ancient Astronauts, to Roswell, and even intricate subjects like Area 51, Crop Circles, and some of the most widely known UFO accounts, Marrs sought to leave no stone unturned.  The book really is a veritable encyclopedia of much of this elusive and thought-provoking phenomena.

If the book only covered those above topics, that would still make it a great book, knowing reliance on sourced material Marrs employs.  But there’s more.  Marrs also covers abstruse subjects such as abductions & missing time, the CIA, MJ-12, cattle mutilations, remote viewing, and even takes a metaphysical gander into ‘the phenomenon’ that’s quite unique.  This book really employs a wide range.   Marrs even ventures into the role of big finance in this abstruse subject.

Another salient point is that this book is footnoted to the hilt!  That ALONE takes this to a whole different level, which is rarely achieved in UFOlogy except only by the best researchers.  That is one reason why my respect of Jim Marrs has only grown overtime, because he doesn’t just connect dots that people can’t verify themselves.

For everything it offers, this book offers a lot of value.  Anyone really interested in the subject would be doing themselves a great disservice by overlooking it.  This book is a must have.
