In looking over the financial landscape that has emerged since the private Fed was foisted upon the hapless sheople in 1913, we can see the culling process that has emerged. Remember, Rockefeller and Morgan, the heads of the American branch of the Illuminati, hated one thing more than any other, and that thing was competition. During the Panic of 1907, which was orchestrated by Rockefeller and Morgan so they could force the Federal Reserve System and Income Tax down the throats of the sucker-dupe sheople, many smaller banks were sent down the tubes.
Then came the 1929 Stock Market Crash, orchestrated by the newly formed, and very private, partly foreign-owned and totally non-governmental Fed, and that started a second culling process, mostly of small to mid-size banks, which took out about one third of the banks that were then blossoming in the US based on the wealth accumulations of the Roaring Twenties. This culling occurred throughout the period during the 1930s, which we now refer to as the Great Depression. The big Illuminist concerns of course survived, based on their inside information, as did many of the leading Illuminists of the time.
Banks were then left alone for several decades to help finance World War II and the post-War boom, which was used to consolidate Illuminist wealth and power through their military-industrial complex. Then it was time for a third culling, as deregulation and the sanity of past banking standards were discarded to create the S&L Crisis. Many more small to mid-size banks were vaporized by the excesses created through this deregulation and by the inflation which the Fed malevolently caused to hurt banks by reducing the value of their mortgages and forcing them to compete for higher rates by making crazy loans to third world countries and to other unworthy borrowers, particularly those taking out mortgages. These banks borrowed short and lent long, a sure formula for disaster, and the end result was that some 2,400 small to mid-size banks failed.
Note how all these past orchestrated banking disasters affected mostly the bottom rungs of the banking industry, a flagrant and direct elimination of competition to line the pockets of big banking by taking down the smaller fry. But now, in the current crises, which is, more than anything, a credit/capital-crunch powered by an asset crisis engendered by derivative fraud that was made possible by a real estate bubble and a totally opaque, unregulated OTC market, with the subprime problem being little more than a fuse leading to the main charge in the credit default swap and interest rate swap powder kegs, we see a process of culling and consolidation at the upper echelons of the banking industry. This is by design, although the Illuminati have bungled this one and caused far greater damage than they intended, relying on rocket scientists who do not understand how markets work to design their Ponzi-scheme. The idea here is to first create a handful of mega-banks that are too big to fail so they can milk the banking system a little longer and to make sure that the bailout money keeps coming from the sucker-dupe sheople taxpayers to keep saving and bailing the latest incarnations of the too-big-to-fail fraudster banks.
In the end, all these large banks will come crashing down like a ton of bricks because they are irretrievably insolvent, and then they, along with the privately owned Fed, will be nationalized and merged into one super-entity, which will be given all regulatory power over the financial industry. They will no longer have to kill off the small fry by creating catastrophes. They will simply regulate them out of existence until their banking and financial interests have achieved god-like, dictatorial power. They will allow those who want to play the game by their rules to eke out an existence, while all others get vaporized. Once they control all financial matters with an iron fist, the Constitution will become irrelevant because the people will no longer have any power to exercise except by revolution, and we can assure you that a revolution is going to come, and soon. The arrogant Illuminists are in for a big surprise as they continue with their evil plans to enslave and dominate the sheople in an Orwellian police state of feudality.
With more than 150 banks already nationalized, and automakers and others begging for the same, it appears the banksters have shifted their focus from cheap consolidation to fascism via their engineered booms and busts.
