For those who think “nothing happened” following the Shemitah’s end on Spetember 13, 2015 …
The announcement of the passing of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement (accounting for some 40 percent of the world’s GDP) yesterday marks the amplification of another shattering Shemitah Trend – not well understood but of a profoundly radical nature. Within the last few weeks the world’s entire power structure has been radically reconfigured.
It is not too much to say that following the end-day of Shemitah, September 13th, the world’s democratic paradigm died and a new ruling structure of technocratic corporatism was ushered in. This corporatism works hand-in-glove with entrenched governmental bureaucracies, so we can also call it by a more familiar name: Fascism.
In fact, even last month the Pope spoke at Congress in between two “fasces” as he announced the new world order. Fasces is a bound bundle of wooden rods, sometimes including an axe with its blade emerging and is where the word fascism comes from. It seems no one ever seems to notice them.
But the word fascism is so charged with historical overtones that it is best to find other descriptors about which people have fewer preconceptions. Fewer preconceptions allow us to see what is taking place more clearly. And we have to try to be as clear-sighted as possible because the general media will give us no help.
In another 100 years or, historians will provide us with the necessary context . But a sociopolitical and economic context created a century from now is not going to help us today.
One needs to keep abreast of the news. One needs to read the alternative media, especially TDV. And one needs to appreciate the convulsive changes taking place.
We are talking about a very recent evolution. First came the dismantling of the EU’s mighty Schengen Area, which in fact is a dismantling of the European Union itself. Trade and migration barriers have gone back up and what is left of the EU is basically a central bank and a very corrupt regime in Brussels that yearns mostly for a standing army.
Now comes the Trans-Pacific Partnership ( to be accompanied eventually by a similar “Atlantic” agreement). Some of the TPP sounds fairly encouraging. Tariffs and other barriers to trade are reduced, for instance. But the main thrust of TPP is to empower large corporations and their un-elected and mostly unaccountable leaders.
Under the TPP, multinationals and powerful corporations can sue governments that make laws that interfere with business and profit-taking. This is a huge undermining of state power. Michael West, writing for the Sydney Morning Herald, had this to say:
The reality is this TPP free trade deal is as much about free trade as it is about entrenching the interests of large multinational corporations. It is no secret that, while the citizens of the 12 signatory nations remain in the dark about the detail of the regional free trade pact, multinationals and their lobbyists had a large hand in shaping it. The US has a system of trade consultative committees. There are some 600 “cleared advisers” who consult to government. Of those, about 550 hail from the corporate sector; the rest a smattering of union, community and environment groups. The cleared adviser has to sign a confidentiality contract and cannot talk about the deal but is free to give detailed advice to government. Leg-up for vested interests.
Why the secrecy? Because TPP is a radical reconfiguration of the way the world works. It removes power from democracies and places it in the hands of unelected managers (technocrats) of gigantic private sector enterprises.
Henceforth, as this paradigm evolves, power will pass out of governments and into the hands of those who wield power unaccountably, protected by the very nation-states they are now being encouraged to sue. Of course this has increasingly been the case anyway, but there is a difference between wielding power behind the scenes and being empowered by law to do so.
What we can see both in the EU and with the TPP is further centralization of power in vast entities that are almost impervious to challenge. The average person has no chance of influencing EU decision making. And when it comes to the TPP, the average person will have no chance to confront multinationals. Meanwhile, multinationals that are distrustful of a given nation’s legal system will be able to turn to a variety of extra-national tribunals that will be empowered to make binding decisions.
Surely the scaffolding of global governance is being erected with treaties like the TPP. It didn’t even take the United Nations. The banking cabal that is seeking ever more concentrated power worldwide finds it easier to pursue the convergence it seeks via secret treaties that are realized via tremendous pressure brought on individual governments behind the scenes.
We have seen this all before of course. Most recently with the first information revolution that introduced books and allowed people to read the Bible. It soon became evident that the Catholic Church had not been telling the truth about the written Word of God and this revelation ushered in significant discontent expanding the Renaissance and leading to the Reformation, Age of Enlightenment and the American and French Revolutions.
Now thanks to the internet, we are engaged in another tumultuous era. The initial information revolution sank the Church, which in turn stripped kings of credible divinity. As a result, democracy gradually emerged (or was foisted upon us).
But the internet has shattered the credibility of democracy. In the US for instance, confidence in government (congress) is running in single digits. That’s a rounding error.
What people have not yet comprehended is that as democracy gradually dies, a new system of rulership is waiting in the wings. This system involves a corporate-government alliance managed by an unelected technocracy.
The system is already quite well worked out and values “expertise” above all else. Those welcomed into the ranks of technocracy go to the best schools and receive the “best” educations. What this really means is that the best and brightest receive a homogeneous world view whether they are in the US or Europe or elsewhere.
This is how a technocrat elite is being built and the only problem with it is that the beliefs of the emerging technocratic class are quite questionable at best and propaganda at worst.
What are some of these faulty beliefs? Well, one of the simplest is the idea that multinationals are an outgrowth of capitalism. They are not.
Multinationals only exist because of judicial fiat. They are an enforcement of the state. They rest on a three-legged stool of court decisions including intellectual property rights, corporate personhood and central banking – itself an absurd invention of Leviathan.
One can easily make the case that people ought to be responsible for their own decisions and that the awesome power of the state ought not to be used to protect one’s personal property. Surely those who believe that ideas can be claimed and “owned” ought to be encouraged to use their own resources to enforce their beliefs.
Central banking is perhaps the most egregiously false dogma to which our managing caste clings. It is impossible for a small group of individuals to set the price and volume of “money” for the rest of us. To do this involves knowledge of the future that is simply not available using backwards-looking statistics.
To counteract this logical fallacy, the idea of the “expert” has been promulgated with extreme violence worldwide. The new, emergent priest class is to use the best statistics and mathematical protocols to create decisions that will anticipate the future and render harmless various kinds of disasters.
This is, however, a kind of nonsense. Central bankers cannot know the future anymore than other kinds of industrial technocrats. NO ONE can know the future. No one, for the most part, can make better predictions than anyone else.
But this is what we are being asked to believe. This is the shape of the future – in which a few “supermen” furnished with the most prodigious brains and best educations shall be held up as part of an “expert class” endowed by innate superiority with the right to rule.
This is the paradigm now under construction. For those who do not believe it can evolve into a force as powerful as democracy once was, please examine your assumptions. The elites have evolved such structural changes before and they use very blunt instruments to do so. Those instruments include war and economic depression.
This is the bloody birth of a new era, one drenched in migratory lunacy, the horror of drone warfare and the creeping genocide of economic depression. It probably doesn’t have a chance in hell of working as it has been almost entirely exposed by the internet and thousands of writer-researchers who have spent a decade or more examining it and publicizing their findings.
But it will create holy hell before it is fully discredited. Paranoid and terrified, elites have truly “let loose the dogs of war.” Conflicts around the world have blossomed with terrible violence. Meanwhile, most of the world is now suffering from increasing economic dysfunction. In fact the next leg may have just been set-off a few hours ago when Deutschebank announced a $6 billion third quarter loss. Their stock is currently down 6%… and we predicted it could be Deutschebank that really sets off this fall crisis (“Will Deutschebank Be This Cycle’s Lehman Brothers?“).
Silver also spiked higher today and the gold miners have begun to rally. It was only two weeks ago that TDV’s Senior Analyst, Ed Bugos, told subscribers to purchase Direxion Daily Gold Miners Index Bull 3X Shares (NUGT) at $30.70. It closed today at $41.49 for a gain of 35% in just two weeks.

“Once, on being asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, ‘The coming of the kingdom of God is not something that can be observed, nor will people say, “Here it is,” or “There it is,” because the kingdom of God is in your midst.’
“Then he said to his disciples, ‘The time is coming when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of Man, but you will not see it. People will tell you, “There he is!” or “Here he is!” Do not go running off after them. For the Son of Man in his day will be like the lightning, which flashes and lights up the sky from one end to the other. But first he must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation.
“’Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all.
“’It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all.
“’It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed. On that day no one who is on the housetop, with possessions inside, should go down to get them. Likewise, no one in the field should go back for anything. Remember Lot’s wife!
“‘Whoever tries to keep their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life will preserve it. I tell you, on that night two people will be in one bed; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding grain together; one will be taken and the other left.'” (Luke 17:20-35, NIV)
