The veterans of Russia’s KGB/FSB were chuckling to themselves, no doubt, as Russian President Vladimir Putin (right) announced his pleasure at Russia’s assumption of the presidency of the Group of Twenty (G20)* nations for 2013. Putin’s “strategic agenda proposed by Russia for the G20 in 2013” is loaded with favorable references to the FSB. The FSB acronym in Putin’s “strategic agenda” is not a reference to the dreaded Russian secret police (successor to the Soviet KGB and its earlier incarnations as the NKVD and the Cheka), however; it is a reference to the Financial Stability Board, a new institution created by the G20 leaders in 2009, ostensibly to deal with the economic crisis.
Nevertheless, the “coincidence” of choosing a name for this new, secretive global financial police with the same acronym as the Putin’s feared agency is oddly apropos. The G20’s FSB is a shadowy financial power that is headquartered inside another even more secretive, shadowy global financial powerbase, the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) in Basel, Switzerland.Despite repeated appeals to accountability and transparency in the FSB Charter, the FSB — like the BIS and the Central Banks whose heads compose the Plenary that governs the FSB — operates in murky opaqueness, outside the controls of the U.S. Congress, national parliaments, or any constitutional constraints.
Putin’s KGB/FSB regime is represented in the BIS/FSB by: Deputy Minister of Finance Sergey Storchak; First Deputy Chairman of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation Alexey Ulyukaev; and Head of Russia’s Federal Financial Markets Service Dmitry Pankin.
Communist China is represented on the BIS/FSB by: Vice Minister of Finance Li Yong; Governor of the People’s Bank of China Zhou Xiaochuan; and Chairman of the China Banking Regulatory Commission Shang Fulin.
The United States is represented on the BIS/FSB by: Under Secretary for International Affairs Department of the Treasury Lael Brainard; Governor of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System Daniel K Tarullo; and Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission Elisse B. Walter. Messrs. Brainard and Tarullo are both members of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the premier globalist organization pushing, for much of the past century, for one-world government through global economic, political, and social “convergence” of the communist and socialist nations with the United States.
The BIS/FSB’s member institutions include the central banks of the G20, as well as the International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Bank, the European Central Bank (ECB), the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and several International standard-setting bodies and other groupings, such as the Committee on the Global Financial System (CGFS), which is also headquartered with the BIS in Basel and is chaired by William C Dudley (CFR), president and chief executive officer of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
Comrade Criminal: Russian KGB/FSB and Global BIS/FSB United in “Supersizing” IMF
The cooperative push by both the Russian FSB and global banking Insiders’ FSB for what they call “International Financial Architecture Reform” has in common the effort to transform the International Monetary Fund into a global Federal Reserve, with vast new powers. This cooperative effort mystifies many observers. “How could these seemingly opposite forces be working for a common goal?” they ask. Those who are stumped by this seemingly incongruous collaboration obviously are not familiar with the history of the IMF and the 1944 United Nations Monetary and Financial Conference at Bretton Woods that produced the IMF, the World Bank, and much of the current “architecture” that is responsible for the economic chaos and destruction visited upon our planet since the Second World War.
