The banksters caused World War I. After heavy criticism in the media – remember when journalists were “intrepid” – they bought AP which bought Reuters, then bought Time Life.
The banksters caused our current indebtedness – with the full consent of the greedmeisters in government – some of whom were pathological alcoholics – all with the “eye on the prize.” We the people are guilty too, of tacit collusion in the abuses that led to the silencing and evictions of our people – right up to the presence.
Before Lisbon we were the “richest country in the world!” Yep, for the 3% holding 97% of the wealth. After Lisbon we were suddenly broke and in debt – but Lenihans Cancer at Christmas wiped that off the front pages. Coincidence? Cynical exploitation of a terminal diagnosis?
Ahern Lenihan Cowan (ALC) paid Rothschild Financial Services 1.9 million pa for “Financial Advice.” Some of that advice included a meeting/lunch at the Fitzwilliam where Rothschild Bank Zurich announced an open door for concerned or over taxed Irish business. This led to a flood of money out of the country.
Now Rothschild owned NAMA/IMF/ECB and their subsidiary banks such as Anglo Irish have received huge “bailouts” from the Irish taxpayer, (Grand Theft, Treasury) and have seized control of our best assets.
In the meantime we have seriously offended our American friends and family and honestly I don’t see anyone with the nous (myself and a few expats excepted) to reclaim that friendship.
At this rate, there may be no point in flying any flag, as we have all but lost our nationhood.
The best action Ireland can take is to join a friendly alliance of GIIPS (or gypped!) nations, regarded as PIIGS by the EU-SSR and take back our nationhood and dignity along with the other -coincidentally -Catholic- and Orthodox Nations. They are using the stick of insult and economic disempowerment to beat us into submission; we need to grab it out of their hands, snap it across our knees and tell them to go fetch! and never forget:
THE EU-SSR NEEDS IRELAND A HECK OF A LOT MORE THAN IRELAND NEEDS THE EUSSR!
