The arrest of the IMF Director General has spurred hostilities among the global power elites [1].
This time, it goes beyond a mere fencing bout regarding economic doctrines, or States vying for a better representation within the institution. There is an existential crisis afoot which has been rapidly spreading throughout the system, splitting it into two irremediably opposed camps.
On one side, there are those who are bent on rescuing the United States from bankruptcy; on the other, those who prefer to bail out the banks. In one camp, we find those who feel that the number one world power ought to summon all energies so as to solve its problems; in the other, those who believe that capital has no country that the future belongs to the BRICs (Brazil, Russia, India and China).
In this context, Christine Lagarde’s candidature for the IMF top position represents a desperate attempt to keep the dollar’s reserve currency status regardless of the consequences for world peace, while that of Stanley Fischer points to London’s willingness to forsake its special relationship with Washington, to put its chips on the BRICs and to chaperone the dollar’s downward spiraling.
Mr. Fischer embodies an original vision which shifts traditional boundary lines. The reserve currency issue would be put in abeyance against a compartmentalization of the financial system to prevent the probable collapse of the United States from infecting the rest of the world.
The time for pleasantries is over; the "civil war of the elites" has begun.
During the somber period that lies ahead, most of the players on the world financial stage will suffer losses, starting with those who were slow in finding their bearings, followed by those who bet on the wrong horse. Many political figures with ties to Wall Street and the City, to Goldman Sachs and HSBC, will have to choose sides and sacrifice part of their interests.

ZH should hire me to proof read their stuff. On the economics issues and instincts they are on the ball; what's missing is the unvarnished meat.

Notice how this piece of fluff only has coherence after reading what I posted?

Calling all bankster zombies! Your masters, the British and Dutch Crowns and the Zionista hard core banksters (joos, of course!), have deserted the FRN. It doesn't matter if they resist; you can't change on the ground facts. Amerikkka is broke!

Haven't seen any evidence to support your assertions about Fischer regarding the BRICs. But if true, he'll be pumped full of viagra and found in the Sofitel of his choice with a menagerie of boys, maids, dogs, and horses. 


Look, at this juncture there's no point in framing imaginary adversaries in the banking echelon, because almost everybody on the planet has woken up to the fact that America is a giant gangster state whose promises to pay its debts (Debts incurred on the backs of the American public) well into the next millenia are as trustworthy as promises from a teenage kid to his girlfriend that he'll pull out when the time comes. The World has been financially fucked over already with America's toxic subprime debt, multiples of derivatives on that debt, and the ensuing bailouts. It's unlikely to bend over for more. 


I think we're running on instinct. The instinct to survive the biggest financial tsunami the World has ever seen. Call it Zimbabwe x infinity. In the coming months we will see more and more jingoistic finger pointing about who is really to blame for the crisis, and it will never be the American fuckwits who caused it in the msm. Individuals and bankers around the world are running away from the FRN not because of some grand conspiracy, but simply to save themselves from a bunch of irresponsible, criminal, egomaniacal nutjobs hellbent on taking everyone else with them as they go down. Are you buying gold and silver because you hate America and conspire in its downfall? No, you're doing it to save yourself and your family. It is no different for anyone else on the planet.

You'd think Japan, China, or Germany might warrant a go.  But clearly the producers and lenders are not to be allowed to put their hand on the throttle.

I wonder if this guy's candidacy wasn't a "works program" bone thrown to conspiracy theorists. After all, what's more conspiracy friendly than the head banker of a Jewish state trying to be head banker of the world?

Kind of an unfortunate choice. Like a guy named Weiner exposing himself.

+1 Fischer's qualifications aren't in doubt. But citizenship in the world's last apartheid state is a fatal handicap for heading the IMF, in the context of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Israel.

The only question worth asking is if Lagarde's multiple tits, as portrayed so eloquently by WB7 in his parody, have enough milk to impress Dilma Rousseff, the key latin american player. If the euro she-wolf does impress fellow tit-carrier bag (no slur meant, I love tits), then the mexican guy can put his pistolero back in his holster and try bolster Latin support to IMF new female boobs presidency by lobbying around "more dole-outs for us, frenchy babe" spiels to support new President-ista. Ole, amigo! Vamos muchachos!

You know there's internecine rivalry in the elite when an administrative rule is invoked to keep an Elder of Zion from getting a job that belonged to another Elder of Zion.

Mark Carney, governor of the Bank of Canada attended the recent Bilderberg meeting in St. Moritz.  I was wondering if he might be a behind-the-scenes candidate.  Not European, but Canada has a good record for fiscal matters and he's not an American.  A Canadian might be viewed as being somewhat neutral. He's young and capable.  No scandals - yet.

Fischer is Bernanke's close friend and mentor, and pro-US.

There is no hyperbole in calling DSK or Fisher "Elders of Zion".

The committed Zionist DSK is famous in France for having said: "every morning when I wake up, I ask myself what I can do for Israel". As to the Israeli Fisher, he did not move to Israel to promote the Palestinian cause, I presume.

Mont Bleu, it is about time you start accepting the new reality that you will be held accountable for your crimes, like anyone else. The time you could obfuscade, disinform, white-wash and get away with your crimes with your "antisemite" shtick is over.

Ah, Mont Bleu, mon dieu, that old anti-Semite canard is starting to wear thin. The world has seen the Israeli Occupation Forces for the murderers that they are and soon, any day now, the facade of Israel as a democracy will come tumbling down.

Maybe we can have a tandem event. Maybe Bibi can come back and he and the members of congress with dual citizenship can stand in congress and declare the US democracy dead also, nothing but a shadow government for the AshkeNAZIS.

Anti-semitic? Not me.

I call a spade a spade and a land grabber a land grabber. Eventually you'll see that the Holocaust does not entitle the Israelis to play the game of statecraft by their own demented rules.

By defending Israel at every twist and turn in the road, you pro-Semites enable Israel to slaughter their neighboring Arabs like they were the elite Waffen SS ambushed in the desert.

Perhaps you are right, Mont Bleu. Perhaps it is self-delusional to expect self-professed mortal nations, not only like Israel but like the U.S. as well, to behave better than Vlad the Impaler and not to scrape thre flesh from the bones of their enemies because their enemies did it first to them.

Yes, Mont Bleu, let the Jews descend before God, who gave them Promised Land, to the lowest common denominator and out do the worst among us while loudly praying at the Western Wall.

God loves the Jew's hypocrisy more than anything else He created.
