- This is the map of most of what is at stake now, and
while Egypt is a key piece in this major shift in global power-it is not
the only country involved.
- "The "The European Bank for Reconstruction
and Development is ready to lend a billion Euros a year to Egypt for reconstruction
and free-market reform -- even as Egypt's Minister of Finance Samir Radwan
has gone begging to the City of London bankers and the British Ministry
of Trade and Investment for relief on debt payments that are about to
throw Egypt into bankruptcy since Egypt has been such a good boy in privatization
and austerity to give Egypt a 7 percent growth rate mostly in investments
that will end up in international hands as ventures fail to pay out with
ever diminishing Egyptian domestic purchasing power.
- First EBRD will lend at interest and build what they
want backed by Egyptian collateral and the value of the projects themselves.
Then when it turns out they can't make the debt payments because of all
the interest we have sucked from them, we take over all of the assets we
have developed. That's freedom and EBRD is really going to give it to
them. After all EBRD is experienced at this. In 1991 the EBRD was organized
to financially lead Russia and Eastern Europe in their transition from
paternalistic socialism to sustainable
- free-market economies open to international investment.
- The U.S. is the EBRD's largest shareholder, although
the combined stakes of European Union nations give that bloc the greatest
say in how it operates."
- So says Dick Eastman (1)
- k) However 'agenda's of this kind were made to shattered,
not just broken. Everything happening in Egypt now is still in flux; and
will be for awhile. This game of "GOTCHA" has no real future
in reality. Worst of all for Eastman's clarion-call is that "money,"
especially international-money is the weakest link in the daisy-chain that
the N.W.O and the elites are frantically clinging to. I wonder how this
escaped the laser-focus of Mr. Eastman in his latest-assessment of this
deal-breaking staple of the revolution that Egypt just endured?
- As always Eastman gives no credit at all to the people
in Egypt that are anything but stereotypical of any other nation-state,
in the region or indeed any place else in the world today. Aside from this
fact; why do so many 'automatically fall-back to embrace the party-line
of the elites, whenever anything arises that has real potential to challenge
the status-quo? You can smell the fear of "What's to Come" throughout
Eastman's article. It's as if he does indeed fail, to convince the world
that Egypt FAILED, then he is somehow a lesser person which makes no sense
at all. The era of criminally acquired money that was supposed to lead
directly to outright global domination is DEAD. Money itself-everywhere-is
suspect at best; and is most likely not to be able to meet its own obligations
in the near term much less down-the-road. Again why was this factor missed
entirely in the article "Kiss Egypt's Revolution Good-Bye"?
- Eastman continues: "EBRD President Thomas Mirow
in a speech at Oxford University declared, "Twenty years ago, the
EBRD rose to the challenge posed by the collapse of communism. Today, in
the Middle East.. we are ready to act again, championing the values that
we hold dear. . . . We have the ability to deliver the development of the
private sector, particularly the small and medium sized enterprises which
drive job creation and thus supplement the efforts of other international
financial institutions which focus on public infrastructure."European
Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton told Egyptian Foreign Minister
Ahmed Aboul Gheit that the EU will permit new loans and provide "expertise"
if Egypt is willing to make the necessary economic reforms to get them.
- Meanwhile new parties are being formed through Facebook
to counter the crowd out the Muslim Brotherhood. New Parties like the
"25th of January Party" -- no indication of what it stands for
in the name -- has garnered hundreds of thousands of "likes".
Another Party, the "Freedom and Justice Party" is a magnet for
a secular pro-free-market Egyptians looking for power and position in the

directed at peeling away one or more demographic groupings from the Muslim
- This important work is proceeding as the world is distracted
by the violence in Libya. By the time the world is ready to look at Egypt
again, the nation will show an entirely different political landscape."
- k) The events of twenty years ago, in terms of money
& power are irrelevant in today's upheaval; so why site them here?
There is no predicate for what is happening in state after state because
we are witnessing a global eruption not unlike a volcano exploding in slow
motion. When the dust settles over the remaining landscapes nothing will
be as it was before. To suggest as Dick tries to do here that "somehow"
the powers that were, will still be in power, because they have always
been the levers behind everything that happens in the world-is just plain
stupid! Especially in light of the fact that what brought this on was not
a "very cleaver tactic" from the same bumbling fools that have
driven the world to the edge of oblivion-but rather this D.O.A. proposal
has been nothing more than a Hail-Mary desperation attempt, to convince
the world, that the elites have not become just another failed empire caught
in the throws of their own demise.
- But if Eastman and his champions have their way we are
all expected to bow down to the ancient money-changers as if "nothing
has really happened" in Egypt or anywhere else because they (and we)
will just line-up at the Money-changers doors to get screwed all over again-as
if nothing at all had really changed. What is being described in the article
is a sucker's game that fails utterly to even consider what the momentous
nature of what exactly that rebellion brought into a formerly "beaten
- Collectively the world has got to stop giving the elites
the power they cannot ever have unless we give it to them. They did not
actually have it before the revolution-and now it has slipped immeasurably
from their tight-fisted grasp-unless you chose to believe Eastman's ode-to-dead-powers
everywhere. The "power' they are so frantically clinging to was never
really theirs in the first place. All of that was no more than a shadow
of something they have been trying to project since they began this D.O.A.
foreign policy that depends entirely upon the belief of their captives:
That they and only they (The Elites), shall reign supreme!
- Perhaps worst of all the Money-Changers put all their
eggs in the weakest basket of all: "THEIR MONEY" which is weakest
of all links which they once had used to control everything.
- DE) "It is clear that the little people have lost
again, that Egyptians have lost their revolution and that the people simply
are not well enough informed to raise up their own alternative to domination

been hijacked by the Rothschilds while the world has shifted its eyes to
- "Citi has unveiled what it dubs the 3G countries:
Global Growth Generators. The 11 countries it picks out as leading lights
are Bangladesh, China, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Iraq, Mongolia, Nigeria,

- The closure of Egypt's banks for two of the past three
weeks has added strain on an economy already reeling from the evaporation
of tourism and a prolonged stock market closure caused by the political
upheaval that ousted longtime leader Hosni Mubarak. The bank shutdown
and the draining of ATM machines have paralyzed businesses and left ordinary
people scrambling for cash. The country's banks had long been a source
of pride for Egyptians, with its strong regulatory environment and their
lack of investments in the kind of toxic assets that hammered Western banks
helped Egypt weather the worst of the global financial meltdown.
- Two weeks Moody's Investors Service downgraded its credit
ratings for five Egyptian banks. Future loans from international agencies
will depend on eliminating those regulations and meeting other benchmarks
for free-market reform." (1)
- k) Again: When a nation has been living for so many decades
under tyranny, it is not expectable that they should have an entire government-in-waiting
ready and able to assume a seamless and seasoned control over a freshly
liberated state. What those people did for themselves was powerful and
overflowing with potential; not just for Egyptbut for the world. And their
real and perhaps most lasting gift to the rest of us was their determination
to survive despite the torture, the murders, and now the open assault of
'new players' made from the same criminal stock as those they are seeking
- No one can attempt to use the measurement-scales of the
old-order to guage whatever the new government decides to embrace; unless
of course they do not go outside the traditional leaders to find and make
use of new blood to go with their newly discovered human-spirit of resistance!
- DE) "Banks remained open the first few days of the
18-day democracy uprising. But after a weekend of looting, arson and lawlessness
on Jan. 28-29, they closed for a week and many ATMs ran out of cash. The
following week, the banks closed. They reopened the week of Feb. 6-10 and
this week on Sunday. The military-led caretaker government has sought
to re-establish a measure of normalcy after Mubarak's ouster. Banks reopened
on Sunday and officials breathed a sigh of relief when a much-feared run
on them did not materialize.- the first weekday after Mubarak's ouster.
They closed again on Monday, the central bank ordering them to remain shut
at least until the start of next week on Sunday. A week ago, Credit Suisse
estimated that the unrest had cost the country at least $310 million per
day, and predicted the Egyptian currency would come under heavy pressure
as investors shifted to dollar deposits or pulled their money out entirely.
The projections for economic growth this year were quickly revised down
from 6 percent to between 2 and 4 percent." (1)
- Only a fool would attempt to measure something new by
using the instrumentation of the old template along with all the instruments
of torture that were continually-used to create the whole of this suppression
in the first place: But then Eastman has never been "a people person"
anyhow; as he has portrayed himself as The Lone Ranger now for years. That's
too bad because this entirely new resistance has been about people and
their rights as well as the way in which they will be able to live their
lives maybe that's why Dick missed the guts of these still unfolding
- This has always been about courage over cowardice, determination
over slavery and in the long run freedom over tyranny: There can never
be any freedom without the will to fight and to keep on fighting until
what was denied is restored by those that have demanded it!
