How the Resistance to Globalization is designed to implement a New World Governance Framework

The phrase “we are the 99%” is very catchy and has the same scripting characteristics of other catchy phrases that are developed within think-tanks and organizations such as the Tavistock Institute.  These social memes serve to rally the masses and herd whole populations towards a specific outcome.

It should now be obvious to most analytical minded people that the Presidency of Donald Trump is strategically and incrementally reducing the American socioeconomic and geopolitical hegemony which has developed over the post-war years.  The changes and dramatic shifts in both domestic and foreign policies are transitioning the United States away from the dominant role it has played in the international governance structure.

Over the last few months there have been numerous articles titled Trump is Making China Great Again, or some variation of the same wording.  There is a clear reason for this.  The ending of the Trans-Pacific Partnership has provided China with the opportunity to strengthen its position in Asia which will contribute to the further construction of the Belt and Road Initiative.  The withdrawal from the Paris Accord also provides China with the opportunity to step up and play more of a leadership role.  Trump is even encouraging China to take the lead on handling the North Korean threat.

The reasoning and rational behind such statements are broad and well supported.  Even the realignment which is taking place in the Middle East, and the discussions around NATO funding and renegotiating NAFTA are all meant to give America room to step back and allow for other nations and interests to fill the space and provide alternative support to that which has been provided under the reign of the USD.

Readers of POM have traveled along through these initial phases of the multilateral transformation armed with the fundamentals.  There are so many moving pieces but the end objective is to rebalance the international monetary system and implement a system of global governance.  This governance structure is being designed to encourage and build stability across the socioeconomic and geopolitical spheres.

The biggest piece of this transition is reforming the international monetary system.  The hegemonic power and influence granted to America has been a direct result of the role of the dollar as the international reserve currency.  The monetary system was designed around the use of the dollar and that system now needs to be re-organized and evolved to allow for the growth and expansion of emerging nations and a broader distribution of world wealth.

The POM thesis is postulating that the election of Donald Trump and his scripted political platform are designed to implement and package the multilateral transition to the American people and the world at large.  So far this is appearing to be the case across the board.

In previous articles we have discussed the strategy related to the Trump scripting and how it relates to cognitive dissonance and Hegelian Dialectic techniques which are used to manipulate and transform mass populations.  The populist nature of the Trump election, and the new modern nationalism which is being strategically used around the world, is serving as a backlash to the globalization which has been hammered across the alternative media spectrum for decades.

It should be expected that the new face of this globalization, which will be a world of reduced American influence and a reformed monetary system, will be sold as the backlash to the backlash. This new world governance framework will allow for the rebalancing of the international monetary system and the shifting of geopolitical alliances.

New trade agreements, exchange rate arrangements, shipping lanes and resource allocations will develop throughout the transition period.  The populations of the G7 nations will repackage globalization as an anti-Trump policy which forces realignment in the world.  This will alter the direction of global trade but will not destroy it.  The same goes for other aspects of the transformation.

The global financial and monetary reform aspects will continue to move forward through a variety of strategies which can be adjusted for real world allowances and facts on the ground.  US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin has communicated the intent to continue working on these reforms to Financial Stability Board chair Mark Carney.

There is also the possibility that the American interests can be completely removed from the reform process and the IMF and other global institutions could move forward without US participation.  The mechanisms are all in place for either path forward.  America could become more isolated in the world, depending on the adjustments which need to take place in order to bring the mass population along with the transformation.  Low resistance to the changes will mean that America could take part in reforming the global institutions and expanding the IMF quota amounts.  High resistance could mean the opposite.

Whether the IMF and World Bank move ahead of American policy the path forward is clear and US monetary authorities will continue down the road paved by the Basel 3 mandates.  The base foundation for the global transformation is the diversification and use of a multicurrency system.  This means that one way or another, world liquidity will shift away from the USD towards the Chinese renminbi until a balance is achieved between both.

The backlash to globalization has been crafted and spread with strategic intent.  It has been spread by the political right and alternative media, as the response to the political left and mainstream media elites.  But the backlash to the backlash will be the world’s response to this growing political division and American isolationism.  A better trap couldn’t have been set to ensnare the mass populations and nations of the world.  – JC

  1. Hi JC,
    Im reading your blog about a year and I like it very much. I read a lot of earlier posts of you too. I read Jay’s blog regulary too. I think he has some very interesting ideas according to religion and religiosity. My question is what do you think, what can we do to make this world a better place? If not for us, but for the sake if our children.
    Thanks

    1. The esoteric posts on POM are more related to what we can do to make the world a better place. It starts within you. The world is just the externalizations of what is inside of us.

  2. Naomi Klein talked about her latest book on CBC’s The Current this morning. She has given similar interviews to many sources in the media. Her book is called No Is Not Enough: Resisting Trump’s Shock Politics and Winning the World We Need. She states her case well. Her thesis is insightful but also relatively simple and easy to understand: corporations and politicians use shock and chaos to encourage public acceptance for anti-democratic (authoritarian/police state/total surveillance) and pro-corporate (economic) legislation. Klein argues that the motivation is simple: money—wealth for the few, not abundance for the many (apparently a possibility never seriously considered).

    I believe that when Klein first proposed this thesis in Shock Doctrine she used Katrina as her main example. Setting aside, as far as I know, the perhaps more obvious case of 911. We can guess that she may have judged that to be taken seriously she would need distance from standard conspiracy theories and the tar and feathers reserved for their adherents. So too, we can only speculate whether Klein has been exposed to analysis such as the material on the Tavistock Institute that JC has presented here, but that she has selected only a few key points in order to make a simpler and more widely acceptable presentation.

    What I appreciate most about JC’s overall portrait of the world as presented in this blog is its cautious optimism. The take-away that comes through for me is that perhaps the elite pushing the levers of power include people who are intelligent, organized, engage in long-term planning, and are not necessarily wholly in league with demonic elements of the collective unconscious.

  3. JC would love to get your comments on crytocurrency. Bitcoin near $3,000 ethereum near $300. Do you think this is part of the planned global monetary system reform or a wildcard?

    1. Actually, I have been reading since October but this is my first comment. I would also love to get JC’s thoughts on cryptocurrency in general. Are cryptocurrencies another way to shift the balance off of the US dollar as the reserve currency?

      1. I’m reluctant to comment on cryptocurrencies at this time. There is a lot of hype surrounding these and hype is never a good thing for average people. The technology and concept of cryptocurrencies will be used down the road in the engineering of an international currency which will evolve from the fluctuations of the SDR and regional currencies. I don’t see cryptocurrencies being a stand along liquid market which will come anywhere near rivalling the USD market or growing RMB market. It will have its place eventually but for now I see it as volatile and risky.

    2. The question could be framed as “Is blockchain a disruptive technology from the perspective of the elite?” The answer could be yes because it enables models that are not based on centralized control. So for the banking system does it represent a kind of anarchy? As a distributed information technology can blockchain become the basis of a central banking system replacement technology?

      1. Thank you Foxglove for this excellent documentary on Blockchain technology.

        In fact, it was very timely for me as I ventured out a bit and bought some Bitcoin and with some minor headaches, I managed to put the virtual cash in a virtual wallet. I had some background in cyber security at least from a theoretical side and somehow I find this mysterious cloud fathomable (I think and I hope!).

        I also believe this technology is being carefully watched by many current governments and private institutions to see how it will be used. In some ways, I think this is a real experiment and one that can possibly have enormous implications in our lives. I was told by a friend who works in the field that the government of a Baltic nation (and possibly Russia!) are experimenting with the technology as a means of providing a solid platform for elections of people’s representatives. The potentials are enormous and this may be the technology that may transform this planet possibly for the better. Maybe the current chaos is the screams of a dying system who won’t go away nicely! Who knows but I remain hopeful that humanity will find it’s path eventually and perhaps we are on a correction path right now.

    3. It’s likely a test masquerading as organic demand. High risk. Everyone should use caution. The implosion for those who go all in right now will be epic. Also reference my other comment on cryptocurrencies.

      1. Perhaps, as the linked documentary suggests, one of the better potential uses for blockchain technology is to increase the security of elections, and create a digital trail that is less vulnerable to corruption/vote fraud.

  4. The first of the reports by the US Treasury Dept., into the financial system that DJT ordered has been released. Covers the depository system, credit unions etc.

    Sundance on CTH has been writing regularly on his thesis that the US banking system has and will continue to develop along two separate economic lines. An increase in much smaller ‘commercial’ banks and credit unions to provide funding to Main St for businesses leaving the ‘too big to fail’ Wall St international banks as ‘investment’ banks.

    This would also support your thesis of a rebalancing of the financial system to create the new nationalism and the new globalisation. Each country will then have an ‘internal’ and an ‘external’ system.

    This is also apparent in the use of fiat currencies. Too many people do not understand ‘money’ and often overlook the two versions most countries use. In the U.K. we have the ‘internal’ pound and then Sterling as our ‘external’ version for business and trade.

  5. JC,
    Thanks for another great post. Just to level-set your thinking with mine and for possible other readers…
    I see this monetary shift as not a “doom and gloom” scenario for the US and the world. I see it as the total opposite actually (At least in the next 5-20 years). If I understand your writings and thesis correctly, the USD monetary system is exhausted. No room for growth. Thus the need for change. And thus, by shifting to a multi-currency and then a supra-sovereign currency, the world has the possibility to grow again. As JFK once said…”a rising tide lifts all boats.” So, this is a good thing especially for investors over the long-run. Let me know if we’re on the same page. Thanks!

  6. In every revolution in history, a major change occurred in relation to the idea of money. The idea is that a revolution means a new beginning for the people and their new lives.

    After the victory of the revolutionaries in France and the execution of the King and his Queen, the revolutionaries ensured that every trace of debt certificate is destroyed and the citizens experienced a reset in the previous financial arrangements. The next thing that happens is the issue of a new currency.

    The same and exact thing happened in Russia after the victory of the Bolsheviks and Lenin ordered a new Rouble and made all Tsarist Currency to be null & void. As a kid in the 60’s in Iran, I had many of these paper currencies of the pre-1917 Russian notes. Lenin’s decree left many Iranian merchants who had business exchanges with Russia bankrupt as the Russian Imperial notes were as valuable as the paper it was printed on. To this day, it is possible to buy these old Russian notes with intricate writings and the photo of the Imperial Tsars photo together with the governor of the central bank signature etc.

    In 1979, after the victory of the Islamo-Marxists with Khomeini as the revolutionary leader, the first action of the new regime was to reset all debts owed to the Imperial Iranian government banking system under the pretext of Islam being against the usury! Instead, a “commission” was charged which was exactly the same amount that was changed and in some cases higher than the previous regime. The Sorbonne-trained Islamist president, Abolhassan Banisadr edict meant a reset of any debt which meant a gift to the people and the fruits of the revolt to be shared by the masses. In truth, this damaged Iranian economy by making many private and government banks to bankruptcy and an uncontrollable inflation to occur. The eight-year-long war with Iraq in this regard came as a godsend for Khomeini, since through the war act he and his revolutionary followers in charge managed to contain the otherwise rampant inflation by rationing and subsidizing bread and other food and essential items under the pretext of a war.

    My purpose for this preamble is to say that history and for that matter everything is cyclical and everything in this world can not go on forever. Growth to infinity is not a possibility and neither it is desired. The current world system of currency and SDR as our JC has been writing in the past few years is in a revolutionary stage IMHO. The bankers aka banksters are realizing that this system as it has been running is not possible to continue. I, therefore, propose that a reset of all debts is not only possible but desirable. The $20 Trillion US is never ever going to be paid back because there were no lenders with such real money, to begin with! Secondly, for the US, it is not even possible to pay such astronomic amount. The Federal Reserve simply adds several zero’s on the computer every time the US Treasury needs cash. The USD, therefore, is as virtual as the Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency.

    The current status of the United States is all working towards a civil war and on one side we have Donald Trump the revolutionary leader and on the other side, we have the establishment and their military branches, a segment of the intelligence. What I am suggesting here is that a confrontation is going to happen with possibly another attack like yesterday in some form or another which will cause a total change of paradigm which will also result in a money reset. Should the reset and issuing a new currency under the new revolutionary government to occur, we will have a new beginning not only for the world but also for the money elite. The elite can not sustain this old game any longer and therefore the only viable solution is a total reset. However, to press that Reset button, there needs to be an excuse.

    What I state here, is based on my own understanding of things as they stand and I may be completely off the charts here, but personally, i can not see the current situation to continue at this stage. I pray for the best and peace and prosperity for everyone though and I shall remain hopeful that this world will be a better place for our children and our next generation…

    I came across this, Assignat after the Frenc revolution and it may be of interest to see.

  7. Thanks JC and all that contribute. The ideas and concepts presented are always thought provoking and as it should be never fully provide complete answers to theses oh so thorny questions. I suspect that may because it is all experiment.
    One thing for sure is that there is not anything for sure.

    Our space brothers and sisters are finding it difficult to do business/trade with us with the USD as the only reserve currency, they are finding it hard to invest in a planet that can’t balance it’s budget. For them that is the simplest of chores, no more difficult than a budget for a household. A household budget considers more that just the money needs, other needs hold priority as currencies that demand flow.

    Many other concepts are considered here up on the POM, thought I’d throw that one out there just for fun.
    PTM

  8. JC,

    “The populations of the G7 nations will repackage globalization as an anti-Trump policy which forces realignment in the world.”

    Is this what you had in mind (the backlash to the backlash), when you stated that the post-Trump world would a see a drastic move toward international socialism?
