False flag, blow-back, or incompetence? A FOREX look at Orlando Shooting

globalintelhub's picture

This tragic event in Orlando is an opportunity to connect the dots in an ever simple global world; as explained in Splitting Pennies - key to understanding Forex markets and how our global financial system includes understanding international politics, and specifically US foreign policy, and how it is connected to the US Dollar as a world reserve currency.  Forex is information brokerage, both as a facilitator and as primary emission of that information.  It is by itself, information - as well, those who play 'the great game' use it to execute their strategem.  

This event, is a domestic event with no implications on the markets (although maybe a short term boom for Smith & Wesson (SWHC) ).  It's not going to affect Forex, directly.  But it will affect foreign policy - not by itself, but as one woven yarn in a policy sweater.  There will be in the days and months ahead, political aggressiveness to 'fight terrorism.'  This event alone, would not be sufficient to go to war with Syria for example, but in the area of domestic support of foreign actions, such events are key to seizing the hearts and minds of the average American, and in this case also the LGBT community - embroiled in domestic disputes of their own.

The fact that the shooter was in contact with the FBI isn't necessarily suspicious.  The FBI is in contact with millions of people all around the world, connected to cases, and their daily operations.  The fact that shooter worked for this G4S, as reported first here on Zero Hedge - is highly suspicious.  Omar Mateen effectively worked for DHS, although through a subcontracted private company.  This is the "Department of Homeland Security" designed to protect us from such 'terrorists.'  

Let's examine 3 motives:

False Flag

If you are one of these TV watchers that believe 'it doesn't happen in America' read the following report from PNAC (Project for a New American Century) in full here - note the DATE and note the SIGNERS of this 'research' that says, before 9/11:

Further, the process of transformation,
even if it brings revolutionary change, is
likely to be a long one, absent some
catastrophic and catalyzing event – like a
new Pearl Harbor. 

What an interesting coincidence, that a Washington based think tank that worries about a declining budget (because of declining real military threats) and declining power, should within a short year after publishing their report have the justification they need to increase their budgets and power by 10.  Or more recently, look at evidence of Sandy Hook false flag here and here.

So was this event a false flag - to escalate our involvement in Syria, Ukraine, or a number of other global hotspots?  Possible, but not probable.  


Omar's parents were from Afghanistan.  He's a first generation US Citizen refugee child.  How they came to America, is not really important - during any war there is a flood of refugees, not only to America, but often they do flee to their captors (and in many cases, providing information to save their lives).  Being born into these circumstances, watching your country burn (even if his current country was America - his family was still connected to Afghanistan) affects your subconscious.  In this case, the programming of American culture works against the establishment.  It's telling him to be free - live his desires, and kill kill kill - murder murder murder.  Violent video games, movies, and culture encourage such events - they foster a hostile warlike environment.  A culture of violence is necessary for programming a domestic population sufficient to justify foreign entanglements of war, looting foreign resources, and empire.  We bring war into your living room, tonight at 11 - watch how we spend billions of dollars and 'help people' in the middle east.  

"Blowback" is when, the people who America bombs are not happy, and come back for 'revenge' - now they are called "Terrorists."  Blowback rarely makes its way back to the continential United States, because it takes funding, planning, intelligence, and a well oiled machine to slip through the cracks of a security apparatus.  This is where cultural blowback can be devastating, because there are thousands of disgruntled children of immigrants now being born in America, who will grow up to be flag waving homegrown terrorists in 10, 20, and 30 years.  These children will not be on any Terrorist watchlist, and they will have normal childhoods, not knowing that they'll join a terror group when they become teenagers.

The foreign policy of the United States of America post 9/11 breeds terrorists, at home and abroad.  Whether there were or were not many Terrorists in the world in the year 2000, now they are growing exponentially.  Until the US Military pulls out of the middle east, and as long as the US blindly supports Israel, there's going to be "Terrorists" who "Hate our freedoms."  The only "Freedom" the US enjoys is to bomb these countries into oblivion with virtually no repercussions.  Well, now we are seeing the repercussions.  


DHS, FBI, and others - somehow 'missed' a potential attack, by not properly connecting the dots.  This is an extremely unlikely scenario - the event happened 15 minutes from a local FBI field office, who has their "Pulse" on the local community.  Just last month, the FBI foiled a terror plot involving a man who wanted to apparently bomb a synagogue.  They monitor all electronic activity, are we to believe they didn't pick up any 'chatter' ?   We can't disprove a negative, there's no evidence supporting the incompetence theory - that it was a 'mistake.'  Many will say it was incompetence, because Omar was in contact with the FBI previously - and the thinking goes, they already 'knew' about his connections to Islam, and so - should have stopped him from buying guns at the first checkpoint, and at the second checkpoint - from any preliminary preparations that were made minutes leading into the event (such as communication with his Terrorist friends).  Not incompetence.

Forex in focus

So what does such an event have to do with Forex trading?  Well - it's all part of a plan to support US Dollar hegemony.  How does that work?  As we explain in detail in Splitting Pennies - there's a policy in washington that goes something like - use US Dollars or we'll bomb you.  If you do use US Dollars, maybe you'd like to buy our nice US Treasuries, such as TIPS?  One leg supporting the Petro Dollar is no longer a secret - data has been released that show Saudi's holdings - about $116 Billion as of March.  How does this support the US Dollar?  Well, imagine that the $116 Billion was sitting in Russian Ruble instead.  Also, as they buy US Treasuries, they first need to buy US Dollars.  Converting from Riyal to USD provides natural support for USD - also, by pricing their oil in USD - buyers of oil must first convert to USD.  It's really a genius method to support the US Dollar, created by Richard Nixon.  It is long term thinking, that isn't subject to daily market pressures.  Anyway, shortly before the most recent US invasion of Iraq, they wanted to price oil in Euros.  USA said - NO.  Wrong answer.  Must buy USD.  It's really a simple policy, let's not be sensational or dramatic about it.  Without this long term support of the USD, America wouldn't enjoy such import advantages, things in China wouldn't be 'cheap' - and America wouldn't be able to carry such a hudge debtload as it does, and other advantages.  This also virtually eliminates the need for any domestic Forex programs - because the USD is unchallenged.  There's a natural tendency for those policies that support US Dollar hegemony, to crush anything that smells like "Forex" - and to further justification of foreign entanglements du jour.  On today's menu, we have Syria, Ukraine, Russia, and NATO expansion in East Europe.  From Tyler Durden:

With tensions between Russia and the West at post-cold war highs, a former NATO deputy military chief is now saying that anuclear war with Russia over the Baltic nations in 2017 is "entirely plausible" according to RT.

This example contrasts brightly what many understand is Forex - the day to day trading of Euros for Dollars that drive the EUR/USD rate up and down.  And practically, it's easier for many to make a business out of rate speculation in Forex than in many other markets.  But to understand Forex, one must understand its origin, why it exists, by what powers and authority.  

To conclude, the US Dollar is backed by something, although it's not Gold.  It's backed by bombs.  That's more than can be said for many competing currencies, including the popular Bitcoin.  Unless you have a world class super army behind you - good luck launching a new currency.

AH yes, the old ZeroHedge "false flag". Any crisis is a good time for a false flag shout out. Y'all are like the boy that cried wolf.

as is well known, it doesn't really matter if it's a false flag for policy choices: if it's a false flag, damn those zionists.  if he's a run of the mill arab terrorist, pissed off about the seven countries in five years and how slowly and cruelly the u.s. is executing, damn those zionists.  if it's really like his father said and he's anti-gay (whether he's closeted is, i think, irrelevant for this argument) and his parents got to america because they were involved in one way or another with the mossad/cia/isi/al qaeda project cyclone, damn those zionists.

I agreed with the conclusion to that article:

"To conclude, the US Dollar is backed by something, although it's not Gold. It's backed by bombs. That's more than can be said for many competing currencies, including the popular Bitcoin."

My view is that money is measurement backed by murder, as the most abstract form of the ways that private property is claims backed by coercions. A corollary to that view is that cryptocurrencies are tiny parasites riding on bigger parasites. (Or tiny predators, riding on bigger predators, since the significant differences between parasites and predators are their distribution sizes.)

The deeper levels of political problems that flow from the ways that the combined money/murder systems actually work are due to the history of successful warfare based upon backing up deceits with destruction, becoming successful finance based upon enforcing frauds. It is practically impossible to exaggerate the degree to which civilization operates through virtually infinite tunnels of deceits and frauds, especially because the limit case of those have become globalized electronic money frauds, backed by the threat of force from atomic bombs.

One thing that is certain is the central and crucial roles of false flag attacks, and other promotions of misinterpretations of possible threats, which are metaphorically like firemen who are pyromaniacs. There is no easy way out of those deepening dilemmas. The history of the excessive successfulness of controlling civilization through the methods of organized crime has driven civilization towards runaway criminal insanities. The bigger background problems are that making "money" out of nothing as debts, because public governments enforce those frauds by private banks, has been able to "pay" for wars. More importantly, those fundamentally fraudulent financial accounting systems have been "paying" to strip-mine the planet's natural resources at an exponential rate.

In my opinion, we are not much more than a decade away from the consequences of the exponential growth in the strip-mining of a fresh planet's natural resources from reaching some much more significant limits to growth, in the form of increasingly significant diminishing returns. At the present time, there are no politically feasible, saner ways that civilization can adapt to running into the limits of exponential growth. The most important underlying theme has become that the series of industrial revolutions enabled the strip-mining of the natural resources of a fresh planet, that had never before been subjected to those technologies. The ways that the industrial revolutions developed were based upon applications of the methods of organized crime, whereby the privatization of the planet was always based upon the series of short to medium term successes achieved through being able to enforce frauds, the most important of which were the ways that money is measurement backed by murder.

The most intense paradoxes with respect to civilization being controlled by applications of the methods of organized crime are the corollaries that the social successfulness achieved by those means depends upon the vast majority of people not understanding that, because they have been conditioned to feel that they do not want to understand that. In my opinion, there is NO DOUBT that "the US Dollar is backed by something ... It's backed by bombs." What makes the future too hyper-complicated to fully comprehend is that there are no genuine alternatives to that being the foundation of everything else. There must necessarily be some death control systems, and so, the murder systems are necessarily the central controls to the money systems, which is how and why we ended up with the existing systems being based on public governments enforcing frauds by private banks, while the overwhelming vast majority of people deliberately ignore those crucial social facts, which are of central significance to everything else.

Since the murder systems are most socially successful by being the most deceitful and treacherous, our actually existing political economy is based upon enforcing frauds, and so, those fundamentally fraudulent financial accounting systems, making "money" out of nothing as debts, have been publicly presented as if those were "paying" to strip-mine the natural resources of the planet, although those were really "paying" for nothing but the exponential growth of systems of organized lies operating robberies, which were turning the natural resources of the planet into garbage and pollution as fast as possible.

It is my opinion that the exponential growth of the strip-mining of the planet is therefore getting worse, faster, and rushing towards the limits to that growth, in the form of the impacts of diminishing returns, while the vast majority of people are continuing to deliberately ignore and misunderstand that, because they were taught to deliberately ignore and/or misunderstand the ways that the combined money/murder systems were actually based upon being able to enforce frauds, which were thereby driven to become exponentially more fraudulent.

Although I am sure that there are an abundance of creative alternatives, those can NOT provide any sufficiently integrated systems to compensate for the effects of having already strip-mined a fresh planet's natural resources. The fundamentally fraudulent financial accounting systems were NOT actually creating wealth, but rather, have been destroying wealth at an exponentially accelerating rate. Therefore, the underlying features of the fundamentally fraudulent financial accounting systems are the depletion of natural resources, being done in ways which can not be fully compensated for, nor accommodated to, by any set of possible creative alternative technologies, which are now known to currently be workable and be scaled up enough to work sufficiently. Despite there being an abundance of possible creative alternatives, which could be integrated into better systems, at the present time, it appears to be impossible for those to replace or substitute for the accumulating effects of the strip-mining of the planet, and thus, the underlying basic depletion of natural resources.

Since it is CORRECT to assert that "the US Dollar is backed by something ... It's backed by bombs," and since the existing debt slavery systems have generated numbers which have become debt insanities, those systems are headed towards provoking death insanities. Those runaway criminal insanities appear to be unstoppable due to the degree that all of the established sociopolitical systems are based upon a long history of triumphant deceits and frauds, which have become exponentially more deceitful and fraudulent, while, at the same time, those sociopolitical systems were dominated by the best available professional hypocrites, whose skill sets included being able to maintain attitudes of deliberate ignorance and misunderstanding towards what was really happening.

Although the laws of nature are NOT going to stop working, and what actually exists does NOT violate the laws of nature, because what exists are combined money/murder systems, based upon enforcing frauds, that are most socially successful when most people do not understand that, and do not want to understand that, we are rushing faster and faster towards some foreseeable turning or tipping points, where the basic strip-mining of the natural resources of fresh planet, with the new technologies developed through the series of industrial revolutions, run into more and more serious limits to growth, as more and more serious diminishing returns.

Overall, the main conclusion is that the foreseeable future must necessarily become exponentially increasing death insanities. That is especially the case because of the ways that those events will continue to be publicly presented in ways which are interpreted by professional hypocrites, who will continue to deliberately ignore and misunderstand how and why that is happening. Given that the underlying situation is the exponential growth of economic activities based upon strip-mining the planet's natural resources running into limits that can not be resolved by any feasible set of creative technologies (short of some series of technological miracles, which, by definition are extremely unlikely), there would not be any ways for civilization to cope with having done that than through provoking runaway death insanities (while any alternatives to that would require series of political miracles, which are even more unlikely than the technological miracles.)

I agreed with the gist of that article above, that FOREX is an information clearing house for the financial systems based upon enforcing frauds, whose main manifestation has boiled down to "use US Dollars, or we'll bomb you." Since human beings live as entropic pumps of environmental energy flows, money is necessarily measurement backed by murder. Moreover, the paradoxical ways that civilization thus operates according to the principles and methods of organized crime continues to have its corollaries that the vast majority of people do not understand that, because they do not want to understand that, and so, that automatically becomes more intense. The exponential increase of debt slavery, becoming debt insanities, has nowhere else to go but towards provoking death insanities. Therefore, we have barely begun to see that manifesting on the scales that one can most reasonably expect to occur in the foreseeable future of the 21st Century.

Theoretically speaking, better resolutions of those problems would require enough people better understanding how and why "the US Dollar is backed by something ... It's backed by bombs ... use US Dollars, or we'll bomb you ..." However, doing so would necessarily require developing better death control systems, with better murder systems as the most extreme manifestation of those. However, we are actually headed towards exponentially increasing death insanities, and therefore, the catalysis of those eruptions of death insanities into better death control systems appears to be politically impossible, without a lot more of those death insanities transpiring first.

Personally speaking, my main objection is the degree to which all of the established sociopolitical systems are dominated by the best available professional hypocrites, who persist in deliberately ignoring and/or misunderstanding what is happening and why. Of course, I can understand the history of successful organized crime, which made and maintained that situation. But nevertheless, I continue to WISH for some series of technological miracles, surpassed by even greater political miracles, in order to perhaps decrease the degree to which there manifest runaway death insanities. Of course, the only marginally more realistic ways for irrational hopes to WISH for such miracles would be to find ways to marginally catalyze those death insanities towards some faster and better development of radically different death control systems, which adapted to having already strip-mined the natural resources of a fresh planet, in ways which enable a technological based civilization to continue to survive, rather than commit collective suicide.

I REPEAT that I agreed with the article above stating "the US Dollar is backed by something ... It's backed by bombs ... use US Dollars, or the we'll bomb you ..." because that is the currently dominant manifestation of the necessary ways that money is measurement backed by murder. Unless enough people understood that enough, then there are no ways to prevent the world dominated by professional hypocrites from driving those systems through exponentially increasing debt insanities, towards exponentially increasing death insanities. Overall, I feel that such a situation can be best described by the saying "we ain't seen nothing yet."

Old Navy spent nearly 20 years in the corporate Intel game after getting out. Keep firing, you're dead on target! This entire hit in Orlando looks and feels like an op. I smell it. Just heard the perp's apartment had a B&E before LE could do a proper search. Sounds like clean up and disposal.


You're right about "ain't seen nothin yet"... still have not recovered all those nukes that got disappeared out of Minot and Dyess AFB in Sept 2013. My assertion is that they're lead boxed and already in place for the target packages to go live.


My gut tells me they're going to hit financial centers, hubs and exchange cities as well as cities with big data back-ups. That bogus deal with Iran was the ultimate tell for me. Got to have a go to Patsy. When they hit us, this will be a walk in the park for those who did it to easily intercede with their NWO agenda.

But oh what coulda been! G4S - operator of "security" arrangements in Afghanistan and Irag - recently exiting it's role as prison management for Israeli incarceration facilities for Palestinian political prisoners/read torture incubators, where Merikan "domestic terrorist" handlers can come and learn live time!


G4S - builder of Deutsche Banks huge[and empty]gold vault in London - mysteriously to be leased - then not leased by the new colossus of gold manipulation, China's ICBC Standard Bank!

By propagating their mental illness they tripped a switch in a mental misfit.

Absolutely possible. However, 3,000 people died in the ultimate false flag on 911. Old Navy has reviewed this case exhaustively. It was absolutely Bush/Cheney - Great Britain  - Saudi Arabia and my most hated terrorist Rothschild funded nation state Israel. Not because I hate jews, but I do hate their Luciferian sect.

Ashkenazi Khazarian Zionist Jews are NOT Judeo Christianity

This was Daddy Bush and Cheney with the money laundered out of Saudi Arabia with Israel Mossad to do the dirty while ole man Rothschild sits back and watches with great amusement as the prinicple of "nothing grows debt like war to bankrupt the world so he can buy it all up again for pennies on the dollar! I think it's literally that simple.


BTW folks... nin11 was a nuclear event.

your last line gives me hope.  however i must disagree with your proposal that the faggot in chief benefits.  i'm not actually sure he's a faggot (truth be told, i would not be surprised if he were not a negro)  i can't see this as anything other than trump gold.  i am not an immigrant activist and i am a hardcore anti zionist so a poor anti muslim recruit.


but i'm not such a fool that i won't jump into a cadillac convertible slowly cruising by.

Bath House Barry... you do realize Michelle is Michael Robinson right? Kids were adopted out of Morocco. Barry is a Bush ops NWO project. Old Navy is telling you straight up. What comes next is likely a nuclear hit in multiple US cities likely before or at the convention for Trump. Think me mad? You just think whatever you like.


After spending time in the military and following 20 years in corporate Intel and tech, I've seen a lot of let's just say beyond x-file reality that even I have a hard time believing. We got missing nukes right now and I am convinced the NWO who's all infected with mossad and hybrid islam are already deeply inside our entire apparatus are all competeing with our own teams for who get's top honor for being the better operator. You're not going to have to worry about the markets much longer! Once we get the EMP, best hope you got one hell of a sail boat and you're on the coast.


Best be ready to ghost out mate! I'm convinced that day is coming and soon. You can all ignore reality, but you cannot ignore the consequences of ignoring that reality.

jeff montanye's picture

you know you want to hear kissinger.


but  something in the post disturbed me:  How they came to America, is not really important


no, it is very important.  in all likelihood they came here as byproducts of operation cyclone.  (from wiki)  By mid-1979, the United States had started a covert program to finance the mujahideen.[5] President Carter's National Security Adviser, Zbigniew Brzezinski, was later quoted as saying that the goal of the program was to "induce a Soviet military intervention",


Despite the hostilities against each other, both Israel and Pakistan are reported to have directorates to deal with each other at an intelligence level.[23] The history of Pakistan–Israel intelligence cooperation dated back to early 1980s, when Pakistan's President and Chief of Army Staff General Zia-ul-Haq allowed ISI to established a secret directorate to deal with Israel's Mossad.[24] Intelligence offices were set up at both countries' embassies located at Washington D.C. where Mossad and ISI, with CIA, ran a decade year long anti-Soviet operation, codename Operation Cyclone.[25] Under this operation, Israel proliferated Soviet made-weapons to the Afghan rebels fighting the Soviet Union in Afghanistan, and Israel supplied weapons to the Pakistan Army.[25]
