conspiracynut posted a topic in General ForumJuly 7th, 2005 saw the biggest terror attack in Britain in the 21st century. Officially it was the work of four lonely Islamic extremists. But could they really have planned the attack themselves?
Do you remember the LIBOR scandal? The London Inter-Bank Offered Rate? https://www.cfr.org/backgrounder/understanding-libor-scandal https://www.theguardian.com/business/2017/jan/18/libor-scandal-the-bankers-who-fixed-the-worlds-most-important-number https://www.investopedia.com/terms/l/libor-scandal.asp http://www.bbc.com/news/business-19199683 The reason LIBOR is so important is that it is used as a "base rate" for a lot of unrelated loans and other monetary contracts. Base rate + 10 or 15% = your credit card or car loan rate, that sort of thing. Okay, not so okay, because the biggest banks in Europe get together and "fix" the interest rate at which they "offer" to lend money to other banks, which I assume are understood to be more or less middle-tier banks. A bald-faced lie, except they are not even claiming that they were taken up on the "offer." The middle-tier banks are not stupid borrowers. They will either negotiate down the "offered" rate or take out a loan at better rates and conditions elsewhere. The LIBOR is a "little people's" borrowing rate. An "offer" to lend money at a rate which was left outstanding at the end of the day and published in the newspaper because no other bank took them up on it. The whole thing was and still is a fraud, long before and after 2008 when it broke the news. And to make matters worse, after London "fixes" the inter-bank interest rates and prices per troy ounce for gold and silver, then about five hours later, (because of the time zone difference,) there is nice comfortable fireside discussion in the U.S., where the Fed Funds rate is similarly "fixed." And the fix cannot be going just one way across the Atlantic, either. The Fed and the big banks in the U.S. have got to be paying London for "the fix" somehow. We need to find out how they are paying, and where the money is going.
Trinity posted a topic in General Forum4:09pm In London police are called to reports of a "serious incident". Two Muslim appearing men have beheaded, a man, who is believed to be a soldier. One witness, who declined to be named, tells Jasper Copping the attackers were "praying like it was a sacrifice" and "making people take videos" The attackers shouted "Allahu Akbar" (the Arabic expression meaning "God is Great"), according to Whitehall sources - BBC News. The witness who spoke to LBC, called James, says there were "brave women" present who were shielding the victim at the scene. He tells the radio station: "We saw clearly two knives, meat cleavers. They were big kitchen knives like you would use in a butcher's. They were hacking at this poor guy. We thought they were trying to remove organs from him. "These two guys were crazed, they were not there, they were just animals. They then dragged him from the pavement and dumped his body in the middle of the road. "They took 20 minutes to arrive, the police - the armed response. "There was only a few people at first, then traffic began to build up because people were getting out of their cars to shout at them. They were taking no notice, they were standing there, I think they were proud of what they were doing. Do we need to call a crisis committee for the attacking and subsequent death of one person? Why cant anyone make a decision in this government?
