The Real Purpose Of The IMF

category international | anti-capitalism | opinion/analysis author Sunday July 13, 2014 13:00author by Luke Eastwood Report this post to the editors

An analysis of what the IMF is really about...

To much trumpeting the IMF have kindly agreed to help out desperate and war torn Ukraine. How wonderful they are we are all meant to think, but the truth couldn’t be more opposite.

The International Monetary Fund was set up in 1945, describing itself as an “organization of 188 countries, working to foster global monetary cooperation, secure financial stability, facilitate international trade, promote high employment and sustainable economic growth, and reduce poverty around the world.”

This all sounds very laudable, but in reality the IMF has a very different purpose from that which is stated. If you look at the history of the IMF’s intervention in countries around the world you will see a trail of disaster and looting that repeats time and time again wherever they go.

The many countries that are involved are supposed to have some influence but this is proportional to their financial clout, which in truth means that the USA has most of the control of what happens and many countries have effectively no say at all.

My opinion of the IMF, concurs with that of John Perkins, author of ‘Confessions Of An Economic Hitman’, his views being that of an insider in the system and mine merely as an observer. He succinctly points out that major western nations use financial warfare to get what they want and gain influence over other countries – the IMF being one of the tools with which they do this.

Caribbean countries such as Jamaica have been destroyed by trade agreements and much the same thing has happened throughout Africa, South America and Asia at various times since world war II. What the IMF does is somewhat similar to a thug loan shark. The loan shark lends money to people who can’t afford to borrow so that the borrower ends up having to not eat to make the payments or face having broken legs.

In a more subtle way, the IMF behaves in a similar way. Countries are given a ‘helping hand’ as loans that they will have great difficulty paying back. In return for the loans the IMF wants interest and regular repayments and ‘restructuring’ of the country’s assets. What this actually means is the asset stripping of sovereign nations so that their economic wealth is transferred from the country’s/public’s ownership into private hands.

This has happened in Europe recently, with countries such as Greece, Portugal, Ireland and even Spain and Italy faced with the prospect of having to sell off national assets in order to finance repayment of loans to either the IMF or EU. Private consortiums, owned by the banks or oligarchs buy up a nation’s forests, coal industry, water supply etc so that instead of the country receiving income from its recourses the private company makes all the money off the backs of the increasingly impoverished population.

At the moment the Ukrainian people might welcome the IMF but you can be sure that in a short time the country will be financially raped and the population plunged into even worse poverty as a result of IMF ‘assistance’. Here in Ireland we are realizing the foolishness of the IMF/EU bailouts that is making life increasingly difficult for ordinary citizens while the government ponders selling off our resources.

Any country with sense (like Iceland) would show the IMF the door and find a better way of clawing its way out of economic problems. Iceland is a perfect example of how a country could solve its own problems – but no-one in the media talks about this – the corpocracy does not want anyone else getting the same idea. Surely, if every nation took the same actions the corporate take over of sovereign nations would fall flat on its face wouldn’t it?

Originally for US citizens, bit effects the world's citizens:

The UN must not be allowed to sneak into our country, it will take over our resources, take away private property rights, law making and tax us into austerity.

The UN is about globalists attacking our wallets and regulating our freedom, who do you think pays for the UN (that PAYS NO TAX)?

Imagine how much extra money we would have if we defunded ...

UN, IMF et al ...

When will there be more focus on the other giant vampire squid that is a far greater threat than all the demopublicans put together?

They dumped the League of Nations which only spawned an even bigger and obscenely more expensive threat to freedom (that is dependent on YOU to fund).

The UN and all of it's huge organizations, commissions and agencies including the IMF and World Bank, generate no revenues, are not subject to the laws of any country it operates in, pays no tax, produce nothing, is dictating 'world' regulations, confiscating your wealth through federal taxation and backdoor taxation through complicit federal government agencies like the EPA.

One dollar spent on a 'FEDERAL' level cost 10 times more than if that same job was done on a 'STATE' level, logic would point to keeping federal government no bigger than our constitutional mandate, notice the federal government taking states property and states rights away form states and handing control of US properties and law making over to the UN?

Now add in the cost of the UN and the obscene waste and inefficiency of 'world' dollars:

Wikipedia the UN and see how HUGE it now is with all it's agencies, peace keeping forces, organizations, commissions and each comes with their own building complexes, vehicles, uniforms, equipment, support complexes, staff, salaries, travel, security, food and energy expenses, conferences AND the now tens of thousands of UN retirees (mostly foreign) and their pensions, perks and benefits.

YOO HOO, who do you think is paying for all of that?

WAKE UP, maybe next time you look at your pay check or worry about your own pension.

With the full backing of our traitorous federal monster government, the UN is ramming 'Agenda 21' and 'Common Core' down the throats of the world, the UN's World Bank is complicit in forcing poor farmers off their own land in Africa and South America for corporate and endowment 'tree farm/carbon credit' investments, is deeming sovereign resources off limits, trying to eliminate (citizen's only) the right to bear arms, our country’s sovereignty and our individual freedoms and now trying to force a 'world' climate change tax and 'world' wealth tax on us AND under the guise of saving us from asteroids, the UN is trying co-opt our US space program, it's technology, resources and NOW ABOUT TO GET CONTROL OF THE INTERNET and MORE OF OUR TAXES.

YOO HOO! Imagine the savings if the USA stopped funding the UN.

Lagarde’s (IMF) salary is over $300,000 + per year PLUS tens of thousands in ‘stipends’. and she PAYS NO TAX.

“most UN employees pay no tax”.

The IMF and World Bank are UN agencies of now countless agencies, commissions and organizations, one big Trojan Horse and tool of a few dynastic families, sucking the wealth, sovereignty, freedoms and life out of the world.

The IMF is nothing more than a world asset stripping debt collector for the western alliance.

Global taxation, a 'one world' currency and open borders are all part of the globalists plan to eliminate sovereignty of nations.

10 nations that control the world's gold - MarketWatch
Oct 20, 2012 ... The International Monetary Fund is the third-largest official holder of gold, with more than 2,814 tonnes.

The IMF is ANOTHER UN agency, it is not a 'nation', it has been deemed 'supranational sovereignty' (deemed by the UN's 'International Court of Justice' -yep, another UN agency). so the UN creates an agency to deem itself and it's other agencies supranational sovereignty over the world and makes it's own laws, decides it needn't pay any tax nor provide any revenues -sweet deal if your a UN employee.

UN? Proven corrupt, unelected, made up mostly of 3rd world dictatorships.

NATO, the UN and all of it's agencies, commissions, organizations, etc (UN agencies include the IMF and World Bank), all have the same boss, they're all really just tentacles of the giant, globalist vampire banksters squid.

Notice the elimination of individual accountability? 'NATO' decided this or that, the 'UN' deemed this or that, and we must all comply regardless of our rights, freedoms and laws of OUR OWN COUNTRY. Any official that your taxes fund needs to be thrown out if they support the UN. The working tax payer needs to be mobilized against funding the UN.

We have to stop giving credibility and decision making powers to unelected foreign entities that we are forced taxed to fund while they supplant our own country’s laws and sovereignty and take control over our resources.

Time to take away the UN’s ‘supranational sovereignty’,

Through imposed ignorance we are handing over our resources, funding (taxes), technology and sovereign law making to basically an unelected, new monarchy (UN) made up of mostly 3rd world dictatorships who are just tools of a few dynastic families.

... time to defund and reform federal into constitutional compliance, reign in regulatory down to it's original intended purpose, defund the IRS and the Department of Education (responsible for all our LOW INFORMATION VOTERS), re-coup our state's rights, take back federal land -our state's property from the feds), time to take back control of our own waterways and national parks and de-fund the UN, kick them out of our country, claw back pensions and restitution of it's assets starting with the IMF’s gold hoard.

US citizens (working and paying taxes) fund 22% of the entire UN world budget & our 'federal' regulatory is also back door funding the UN (with your taxes, especially the EPA). We have been funding the United Nations University Institute for Sustainability and Peace (UNU-ISP) since 1972. How's that sustainability & peace working out? How many of their 'professors' & administrators are now comfortably retired on obscenely fat tax funded pensions? The UN includes the 'World Tourist Agency', and it is tax funded.

When our own US citizens were furloughed, why wasn't the massive 22%++ of US tax funding of the UN and it's countless agencies, organizations and commissions withheld or even mentioned by MSM?

Why then isn't MSM all over this? A co-conspirator of the Rothschilds explained it years ago:

"We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. … It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the world is now much more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries. "

-David Rockefeller, Baden-Baden, Germany in June 1991

1991?

...and George Bush Sr. New World Order Speech Sept 11, 1991

Sept. 11?

WHAT A COINCIDENCE!!!

Wikipedia:

The United Nations Headquarters complex was constructed in stages with the core complex completed between 1948-1952. The Headquarters occupies a site beside the East River, on 17 acres (69,000 m2) of land purchased from the foremost New York real estate developer of the time, William Zeckendorf, Sr. Nelson Rockefeller arranged this purchase, after an initial offer to locate it on the Rockefeller family estate of Kykuit was rejected as being too isolated from Manhattan. The US$8.5 million (adjusted by inflation US$82.6 million) purchase was then funded by his father, John D. Rockefeller, Jr., who donated it to the city.[6] Wallace Harrison, the personal architectural adviser for the Rockefeller family, and a prominent corporate architect, served as the Director of Planning for the United Nations Headquarters. His firm, Harrison and Abramovitz, oversaw the execution of the design.[7]

-

With their huge international investment exposure and influence, wouldn't you expect the Rothschilds and Rockefellers to be just a little more concerned and vociferous, as the world 's economic structure is crumbling toward chaos and war and people's freedoms are systematically taken away?

Unless they are orchestrating it.

Understand the problem and your already on your way to fixing it.

Who the RINOs and democrats bow to.

Vote OUT all RINOs and democrats like your job, wealth, health, privacy, your right to defend yourselves, your kids well being, states rights, the Constitution and as your LIFE depends on it.
