The Silk Road to the Central Bank:
Chapter One

Please go to: http://www.opnovel.com/silk-road-to-the-central-bank.html to see this article complete with images.

You've likely never heard, "Follow the Coal", or "Follow the Oil", and certainly not, "Follow the Solar". 

The single most important unit of energy is no longer natural resource based. 

People have come to think of energy as oil, or coal, or even a unit of electrical power. It's not. It's money. More importantly, it's currency - the printed reflection of energy, and power. 

It is my intent to demonstrate to the reader how people came to know that there was no better business than that of the production, and distribution of currencies. 

Please go to: http://www.opnovel.com/silk-road-to-the-central-bank.html to see this article complete with images.


Please remember a few things from the outset: 

After we went off the gold standard, currencies no longer were tied to anything tangible. The value of currencies became intrinsic only to the thoughts, and goals of a small set of people, who are, by any definition, the One Percent of the One Percent. 

When currencies are not tied to something tangible, there are no factors limiting the supply of currencies. Poverty, or deteriorating infrastructures that fail, or fall down, and kill people are conditions artificially created, and maintained, by the individuals making the decisions to limit supply. 

Also, please remember that prior to there being energy sources any more sophisticated than wood, there have been people attempting to identify a commodity involved in the majority of everyday transactions. Until about 1973, it was some form of natural resource based energies. 

The only commodity that fills that criteria now is currency. Is there any business capable of being more influential, and profitable, than the business of currency production, and distribution? 

Should there be a nineteen to twenty-one member unelected Board of Directors, possessing a dictatorial influence over every democracy on this planet?

Trading could, during the early days, involve sheep, goats, cattle, grains, and dried fruits. All, however, required a specialization in the production, or transport of those commodities. 

If, however, you were a trader of goods over large distances, ideal products would have been light weight, and extremely valuable, such as spices, and silks. These products were of such substantial value that routes involved with their trades were named for them. Valuable trading was accomplished at points along these routes, but the most valuable commodities were sold at the ends of the what were known as the spice route, and the silk road. 

The traders that traveled the entire length of the roads found difficulties with excepting commodities that were either weighty, or alive. They had neither the ability, nor inclination to tend to livestock, haul grains, or accept perishable commodities in exchange for the products they carried. 

Traders traveling these roads also had to contend with thieves. It was far easier for raiding thieves to drive livestock away from their trader owners, or attack a slow moving caravan carrying grains. It would be easier to defend oneself from thieves, if the valuables they sought to defend could be kept in close proximity to well armed, and defensively capable men. 

These troubles gave rise to the willingness of traders to accept valuable metals, and soon thereafter, valuable metals stamped into the form of coin in exchange for their goods. Stamped coins diminished speculation about what other commodities would be marketable, upon completion of the routes. 

As soon as stamped coins became prevalent, we have the rise of the money changers. Money changers would, as all traders, or brokers do today, suggest that one form of coin had, for any number of reasons, including introducing deceitful rumor, changed in value. A trader arriving back home might present to a money changer the coin from one nation in hopes of exchanging it for a coin with greater acceptance locally. Money changers would attempt to exchange the foreign coins for a local variety at significant profit. They could then attempt to sell the foreign coins to traders about to begin their journey back to the cities of the foreign coin's origin. 

The currency traders (money changers) remained in business for several centuries. It took this quantity of time to establish something akin to a bank. They were, in that time frame, more accurately referred to as depositories, where a trader could obtain some form of coinage easily negotiable throughout the trade routes. The administrations of any participating depository anywhere within the trading routes, would have to agree to honor an established value of the coinage, without concern as to its origin. 

Some of these new style depositories organized themselves with attention to the silk road, and spice route traders. Each depository would recognize the quantity of coinage deposited, by a trader, within any of the participating depositories. If the client required access to coinage, he could withdraw a percentage from one of the participating depositories at the opposite ends of the silk road. 

At this stage of world trading, there were far fewer people, and countries were often less stable. Gold could function as a common commodity to insure the value of any coinage at either end of any trading route. Merchants reselling the merchandise obtained from the silk road, or spice route traders could also perceive an acceptable level of safety. If the coinage possessed a weight sufficient to cover the face value of the coinage, country of origin was not significant. For several centuries, there wasn't a perception of the need for a single currency covering vast geographical regions. 

Move ahead several centuries, increase the population, as well as the volume of trading, or commerce world wide. The use of gold coinage no longer made sense, and for many reasons. The weight would be for too high, and risk of death through robbery became unacceptable. Currencies had to change form, but must provide the same degree of negotiability. 

The beginning of the end of a gold based coinage, was the introduction of a paper form of currency. In the early stages of paper currencies, there needed to be some sort of guarantee of its value, so the U.S., for example, printed that guarantee right on the face of the paper note. Here is such an example:

Please go to: http://www.opnovel.com/silk-road-to-the-central-bank.html to see this article complete with images.

I copied that guarantee off the note, and placed an enlarged copy of it below it. The practice was known as Fungibility. Fungibility is the property of a good, or a commodity whose individual units are capable of mutual substitution. Fungibility was, in fact, one of the reasons for the end of the gold standard. It was also the beginning of an oil embargo, in 1973. 

The dollar had been pegged to the price of gold, and the dollar was the principal currency for the purchase of oil, even from countries other than the U.S.. Part of the newly formed OPEC decided to, instead, peg the price of oil to a quantity of gold. Although rarely found in any written account, OPEC had, as a result of the end of the Bretton Woods accord, briefly demanded payment in gold bullion. This, of course, would cause the U.S., and most industrialized nations to reduce their stocks of gold to make payment. 

Since the dollar was pegged not only to the price of gold, the volume of dollars printed could be no greater than the quantity of gold possessed by the U.S. If any country was forced to pay for oil in gold bullion, there would have to be a reduction in the quantity of dollars allowed to exist. This situation would, quite naturally, be considered intolerable. 

Ending the gold standard lead to anticipations that currency values might fluctuate unpredictably. The industrialized nations increased their reserves (by expanding their money supplies) in amounts far greater than before. The result was a depreciation of the dollar, and all other industrialized nations' currencies. Even after OPEC had increased the cost of oil, the depreciated value of the dollar reduced OPEC nations buying power for all required goods. OPEC nations were left worse off, than if they had never attempted to use, what they referred to as , the "Oil Weapon". 

Please note how significant the coming change would be upon our society. 

There have often been discussions of world changing inventions. Rated number one was the Gutenberg Printing Press. There were others such as the light bulb, and still others suggest the internet. If there has been any single practice that has, and will change the world, it is when the unit of energy changed from being natural resources based to standardized currencies based. 

Note that as a result of the oil embargo, currencies were, for the first time, no longer tied to any tangible commodity. There has never been just a radical departure from previous economic models, or any previous form of monetary policies. The Arab countries had thought they held the unit of energy that could influence all transactions world wide. If they hadn't decided to overplay their hand it may have stayed that way. 

Power, and influence over all events could now begin to switch to the central bankers. They could, if they played their hand properly, evolve into the only source of what would become the most important unit of energy. If, during that evolution, they could reduce the number of standardized units of currencies, they could minimize the effort required to influence vast geographical regions. The Euro is that example. The organizations that came to exist, and fill that void, are what have come to be known as Central Banks. 

When there are central banks, and that means plural, there must be a central bank for all central banks. That bank exists, and is known as: 

The Bank For International Settlements:

I created a short video regarding the Bank For International Settlements (BIS). If you want to stay aware of who the real money players are, and even well above the EuroGroup, the European Central Bank, and even our own Federal Reserve System, you need to become familiar with the Bank For International Settlements.

Post has attachment
This system of central banks is world wide, and became an international system of owning the world's money supply. The creation of the Euro made the system far stronger by creating a single currency for all of the EU nations. 

Who is the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), and how could a foreign bank control our Federal Reserve System, and banks? 

First, here is some propaganda from the BIS website: 

Established on 17 May 1930, the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) is the world's oldest international financial organization. The BIS has 60 member central banks, representing countries from around the world that together make up about 95% of world GDP. 

To repeat some of the paragraph above: 

The BIS has 60 member central banks, and they make up about 95% of world GDP. 
You don't get 95% of the worlds GDP, without one of your member central banks being from the United States of America. 

From Wikipedia about when, and why the BIS was established: 

The BIS was established on May 17, 1930, by an intergovernmental agreement by Germany, Belgium, France, the United Kingdom, Italy, Japan, the United States and Switzerland. 

The BIS was originally intended to facilitate reparations imposed on Germany by the Treaty of Versailles after World War I. The need to establish a dedicated institution for this purpose was suggested in 1929 by the Young Committee, and was agreed to in August of that year at a conference at The Hague. 

The BIS became the central bank to all central banks, throughout the industrialized world. Even the U.S. Federal Reserve System is a chartered bank of the BIS. This bank sets monetary policy for 95% of the business activities throughout the world. This also means the this bank's Board of Directors sets that policy. It comes down to 95% of the world's business activities throughout the world is significantly impacted by only 21 people, and only two of them are from the United States. 

There has not been a United States citizen elected as the Chair of the Board, nor a United States citizen elected as the banks CEO, since 1935. 

United States monetary policy is set by the Board of the BIS, regardless of who is appointed by the United States President as the Chair of the Federal Reserve System, and banks.

If you are not yet familiar with what has been happened to your banking system, get yourself more informed about the world's most powerful bank, known as the Bank for International Settlements. 

This image is the BIS's headquarters offices, in Basel, Switzerland. If you would like to see an expanded image of the bank's HQ, click on the image below.

The original image has a beautiful blue sky behind it. I decided it should have a back drop more representative to its nature.

More on the Bank for International Settlements: 
If you're not familiar with the BIS, perform a Google search on the Bank for International Settlements.

There has been a lot of new propaganda created to make them look wonderful, trustworthy, and essential to the world's banks, as well as, of course, you, and me. In recent weeks, even Wikipedia's page about the BIS has been rewritten, with the most useful, and objective material removed.

Please try to comprehend who they actually are. My impression is that their board is the who's who of the elite, and maybe the elite of the One Percent. They are those who believe they are the genetically endowed to rule the rest of us.

Something very ominous is taking place. It may turn out to be more frightening than any event I have witnessed in my life.

The central banking system of the world has united very effectively under the systems primary bank, the Bank for International Settlements. They are now holding Greece hostage, and in only one week, they strangled the nation's supply of food, and medicine. They are forcing the nation's elected government to capitulate to their demands, or they will starve the nation from its source of staples. 



This unfriendly looking fellow, in the image below, is Jacob Funk Kirkegaard.
http://www.cbc.ca/gfx/topvideo/2015/jacob-funk-exchange-141229_16x9_xtraxtralarge_1.jpg
He is from the Peterson Institute for International Economics, in Washington D.C... He was speaking on PBS's News Hour on July 3rd. 

He was blaming the shortages of staples, and medicines, as he has been on numerous world news media channels, on the Greek government. He said, with a straight face, that the European Central Banks were not the cause. He did, of course, suggest that the Greek people should vote yes, on the referendum on July 5th. He is a friend to the banking system, and certainly looks like the sort of people they need speaking for them. Thankfully, there was another fellow who disagreed with him. 

This fellow was also on the July 3rd PBS News Hour. His name is Mark Weisbrot, and is the Co-Director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research, also in Washington D.C. (You may use the following link to see an image of him, if you wish. He actually looks friendly, and thoughtful.

<img src="http://www.cepr.net/images/staff/thumbnails/mark1.jpg”>

I have to paraphrase what he said, but he contradicted Mr. Kirkegaard, and stated there was a need to examine the real cause for the shortages. He noted that it was European Central Banks creating the problem. I wasn't sure if I was about to hear from another talking head for the banks, but I was surprised, and cheered from my seat at home, after I heard Mr. Weisbrot speak. Mr. Weisbrot is, of course, correct.

A privately held series of international corporations are attempting to extort the elected governments into capitulation to their demands, or they will cut off the supply of the Euros they manufacture. 

Don't come to the conclusion, as they will hope you do, that anyone speaking out against them is some sort of conspiracy kook.

Get yourself more thoroughly informed about this extremely well organized threat to your own government's susceptibility to these people.

The European Central Bank System (ECB) has declared war on Greece:

The central banking system of Europe, and indeed, the world is based out of Basel, Switzerland. This central banking system is made up of chartered banks within all industrialized countries, and all are chartered banks under the Bank for International Settlements (BIS). The actions threatened by the BIS, upon Greece, demonstrates that a privately held corporation is threatening a sovereign nation with the equivalent of a Declaration of War. 

Greece may have made some mistakes, but the European System of Central Banks (ECB) is acting as though they are the dictators of Europe. They threaten Greece with economic disaster. They suggest there is no similarity between their type of threat, and a bombing, or shelling campaign upon a sovereign nation. Citizens of Greece have also been told that their banks have the right to limit, or prevent a depositor's access to their own cash, or assets. 

Their actions are the equivalent to threatening starvation, and theft of all assets. How is this different from a Declaration Of War? 

The peoples of Europe voted for a common currency only for the advantages over trade, and a desire for peace, and stability. Now, it seems, they are learning what voting for the Euro actually meant. European citizens ended up voting for a new unelected illegitimate centralized government capable of imposing its will over the legitimate elected governments of all member nations of the Eurozone. 

These European Central Banks were empowered to produce the Euro. That provided the ECB with the authority to provide EU member citizens with an illusionary asset, and they produced it in quantities far greater than the total assets existing within all Eurozone member nations. They then lent EU member countries these Euros, at interest, in quantities that were, again, in quantities far greater than the total assets existing within all Eurozone member nations. 

In an action similar to that of short selling a stock, they knew the loans they provided would be impossible to repay. Greece has, as all industrialized countries of the world have, promised to pay for pensions, as well as other benefits, to their citizens. 

The ECB is demanding that Greece default on those promises, so that Greece might be capable of paying the ECB, instead. Once again, the ECB is threatening starvation, and theft of assets. 

When the Nazi's threatened all about them, within Europe, and later most of the world, with a similar fate, Great Britain, the United States, the USSR, and numerous additional allies comprehended the scope of the problem, and joined together to defeat it. Under an international system of central banks, with all of them chartered banks under the Bank for International Settlements, in Basel, Switzerland, there will not be any nation willing, or capable of resisting. A new unelected dictatorial level of management exists over the elected governments of all industrialized nations. 

The national, and local banks, within Greece, will be under pressure to capitulate, as well. The chartered major banks would never consider not remaining in lock step with their central bank bosses, and sources of capital for lending. If they are told to limit withdrawals by depositors of their own money, they will follow those instructions. How better to manipulate an election than to threaten starvation through loss of access to money to purchase food? 

What we are witnessing can be considered nothing less than the blackmailing of Greek citizens by entities that would be prosecuted if not for their status as international corporations, without specific bodies to through in a jail cell. 

Greece is only the first to have its head placed upon the block. All EU members will begin to understand the scope, and nature of the choke placed about their collective necks. 

We here, in the United States, might likely never recover from the massive theft of personal assets, and taxpayer dollars of 2008. Even the bailouts given the banks by the U.S. government will be considered a loan from the very bankers assisted. Those same banks will apply to the central banking system for the monies to repay. That system will invent the monies, simply through the clicks upon a computer keyboard, and then charge interest to the U.S. government for the money it used for the bail out. 

I seriously hope, when the people of Greece go to vote on the referendum to approve the ECB's demands, they vote "No". 

If you vote "Yes", you vote to accept wearing the choke imposed upon you by the ECB, and the BIS. 

The international debts, especially that of the U.S., have increased to a degree that is clearly above, and beyond any level capable of being repaid. I had been wondering what direction our system would go to put things back onto a reasonable course. I thought, and I must now admit foolishly, that even these black hearted bankers would figure it out that debt forgiveness was the only course to consider. I failed to recognize that the bankers are not interested in remaining in their boring roles. Their aspirations lay as figures within a single world government. They have, with their new threats upon Greece, fired the first major volley in what might become a new economically based World War. 

If you're not familiar with the BIS, do a Google search on the Bank for International Settlements. There has been a lot of new propaganda created to make them look wonderful, trustworthy, and essential to the world's banks, as well as, of course, you, and me. In recent weeks, even Wikipedia's page about the BIS has been rewritten, with the most useful, and objective material removed. Please try to comprehend who they actually are. My impression is that their board is the who's who of the elite, and maybe the elite of the One Percent. They are those who believe they are the genetically endowed to rule the rest of us.

Preface to the novel:

It has taken centuries of effort for the ultra wealthy to establish, and maintain their positions. They don't intend to relinquish their status. History has shown that if they perceive their dominance is under threat, there are no physical, or politically defensive measures considered too extreme.



If they hope to maintain their position, there are essential components, within their structure, that must continue to be dominated, and protected.



Above all is their exclusive control over the production of the individual forms of currencies utilized by all industrialized nations. The awareness of the need to own this aspect of a developing world has been known for millennia. Warnings to prevent a small number of individuals from gaining control of this aspect of civilization have roots as far back as the original texts within the Bible. 


This novel proposes alternate histories were created, and maintained by temporary members of the One Percent. It presents an alternate path to their existence, by presenting events that suggest they, and their structure were given a nearly instantaneous existence. Early members of this country's One Percent were individuals of limited experience, and talent. Nonetheless, they demonstrated prophetic insights related to this country's entry into the Industrial Era, as well as its lack of a cohesive banking structure.



They remained inconspicuous, until they began to threaten the status of the existing, and centuries old European banking interests, and their equally old One Percent.



This novel presents evidence that the original ultra wealthy within the United States were displaced from their positions, soon after they were perceived to be a threat to their European competitors. As the U.S. developed technologically, their descendants developed a method to recover, and re-establish their positions. It took over one hundred fifty years before they possessed the means, but the present distribution of wealth, within the U.S., is demonstrative of their successful return.

Since that date in 2004, no actions have been taken without the use of: 

The Survival Guide For The One Percent 


So how did they intend to accomplish their return? 

They have not yet succeeded. This novel proposes that what we now witness is a work in progress, and the members of the One Percent are in a state of flux. At no time in history have the stakes been higher, nor the motivation greater to displace the members occupying positions, within the One Percent. 

United States President Andrew Jackson's opposition to an organized Second Bank of the United States was the beginning of the displacement, and destruction of the United State's ultra wealthy. Jackson was correct about the Second Bank of the United States being owned by foreign investors. Those investors primary goal was the destruction of America's wealthiest individuals, and to insure that all United States assets were under the control of European banks. Andrew Jackson's programs allegedly put the United States into a deep depression, and the Panic of 1837. Instead of allowing the United States to climb out of its troubles, legislators, secretly in support of Britain, created a new United States Bank. 

They succeeded for one hundred sixty seven years. A United States government, nearly indistinguishable from that of today, funded a program utilizing newly discovered technology to attempt to covertly rectify the European dominance. The program's goals were announced to be related to climate change. They were, however, quite different. 

Blend Quantum Mechanics, with the M-Theory (Membrane Theory), and you obtain a door between membranes. Additional research provides the knowledge of how to send information through that door to specific people. The plan was to return the key components to financial success back into the hands of those who were stripped of their previous success. 

In their excitement during the design phase, they failed to provide adequate protection from intellectual property theft. If one of the programmers employed to implement the project is watching this research develop, it wouldn't take too many brains for them to figure out how to use that knowledge to their own advantage. The programmers could provide their own ancestors with the proper times, and the proper places to be, when major discoveries were about to alter industry, and business. 

Several programmers did precisely that. They expected to benefit, by being the heirs to the fortunes of the financial dynasties they would create for their families. 

The information they provided created what we now refer to as the One Percent, but they are not the same people that previously occupied those positions. The programmers displaced the intended recipients. Instead, men of little to no significance became titans of industry. JD Rockefeller, for example, was the son of an elixir salesman, yet he rose to become the wealthiest man in the United States. 

The programmers began to develop unexpected consequences. Some of the new men chosen by the programmers to become the ultra wealthy ignored the insights provided them. They became pawns of the original program designers. They began to implement schemes to repeatedly crash economies. 

The programmers were unaware they were not alone in manipulating histories. F Augustus Heinze became the pawn of those who intended to install the original projects chosen individuals. He was taught how to manipulate banking laws, and currency values, and precipitated the panic of 1907. This event changed political moods, and allowed for a vote to form the Federal Reserve System, within the U.S., and eventually what we have today, within every industrialized country. 

Every criminal expects that they are smart enough to get away with their crime. These programmers expected their ancestors to be grateful, and to enrich their descendants. It didn't turn out that way. Their ancestors decided to hide their trail, and deny any involvement with special insight. 

Episode One provides the basics of how all of this came to begin. Subsequent episodes of the novel are about the chase of those involved, their attempts to retain the new history they created, and their attempts to escape their well deserved payback.

This novel is about the hunt, and the payback. The New One Percent, as well as the programmers, are being pursued, within their new histories, as well as the old. It's the story of how the war we're all now witnessing, between most of the ultra wealthy, came to begin. As you read each episode, you will need to decide if what you see about you is real, or manipulated. The events of 2008 were not created by the fools placed in front of media cameras.

This is a brief video about the novel, and how the modern day One Percent came to exist.

I have started a series on our existing, or modern day One Percenters.

I have begun with the advent of the Clinton Foundation catapulting Bill, and Hillary into my definition of One Percenters. Since they both now have access to billions of dollars, and possess international political connections, there is little doubt that they now have the ability to influence change.

The Clinton Foundation has made some claims about what percentages of their remarkably high incomes from donors go to program designed to help others. They claim to the public that they give 88% to programs, yet the Federalist newsletter indicates that the Foundation's tax return indicates they only gave 10% of their income to programs.

If you recall, they started with their offices in Harlem. I looked great politically, but it wasn't long before they wanted better digs. Now the Foundation pays over $14 million per year on rent in a building on the Avenue of the Americas. Who stays in Harlem, when you can afford the highest rent district?

You may read more about this discrepancy over the foundation stating to the public that they gave away $261 million, and telling the IRS they only gave away $29 million at:

You can follow along as I add more examples, such as the Koch Brothers.
