Are Banksters Robbing, & Even Killing, Millions of People Worldwide? If So, How?

Almost half the world, three billion people, live on less than $2.50 per day, and 80 percent of humanity lives on less than $10 per day.  According to UNICEF, 21,000 children die each day due to poverty.  The claim is that people are dying because of what banksters do.

Skeptical of such claims?  Read John Perkins' book, Confessions of an Economic Hit Man, as well as his excellent follow-up book, Hoodwinked.

In these books, Perkins reports that during the 1970s he worked as an economic planner for an international consulting firm and describes how the globalists enforce the economic hegemony of the banksters, the IMF and World Bank, forcing exploitative deals on victim nations in the Third World. 

Here's how it works:

Perkins' job was to negotiate huge loans to third-world nations, loans of money that the banksters created out of thin air and which they knew the borrower nation could never repay.  Once the borrower defaulted, the banksters would move in to legally steal the nation's natural resources and gain control of its political system and economy.

Several third-world leaders had integrity and refused to enslave their nations to these parasitic "money changers."  They also refused the cash, luxury, cocaine and hookers that Perkins offered them, courtesy of the banksters.  Perkins says that leaders who would not play ball would eventually be overthrown in a CIA-sponsored coup, and/or they would be assassinated.

In the United States, meanwhile, the current economic depression caused largely by the Federal Reserve has resulted in 44 million once-independent Americans having to rely on the government for food assistance.  Many of these food assistance recipients hold college degrees, even post-graduate degrees.

Additionally, up to 1 million U.S. families are too broke to even go bankrupt, which is to say that they don't have the money to cover the legal fees required to declare bankruptcy.

Meanwhile, banksters are also supporting wars (often arming and funding both sides), the support of which, once again, is paid for by creating money out of thin air.  To wit:

Since the beginning of the Iraq War in 2003, the New York Federal Reserve shipped tens of billions of dollars to the government and central bank of Iraq, allegedly for reconstruction.   Between 2003 and 2008, over $40 billion in cash was secretly shipped in trucks from the New York Federal Reserve compound in East Rutherford, New Jersey to Andrews Air Force Base outside of Washington, where these large pallets loaded with packaged cash were then flown by military aircraft to Baghdad International Airport.  In just the first two years, the total weight of the currency (which US taxpayers are now paying interest on) that was shipped to Iraq was 363 tons!

When it got to Iraq, much of that money was stolen, misappropriated, and simply "lost.'  Despite Congressional hearings and reports, nobody can say exactly what happened to the bulk of the money.  Most likely, these stolen fiat dollars, secretly printed (after being created out of thin air) to fund the US government's illegal war and the senseless
deaths of up to a million Iraqis, went towards intricate contracting schemes and corrupt Iraqi and American officials.
