Collusion for Illusion

Australia’s Big 4 promote competitiveness amongst themselves when they are all owned by the same financial (mostly foreign) interests

By General Maddox.
So what do Australia’s “Big 4” have in common besides siphoning all our money into their coffers? NAB, ANZ, Westpac & Commonwealth Bank are publicly listed companies. So that means they have shareholders right? Well did you know that the top 4 shareholders in each of the “Big 4” are in fact the same?

1 – HSBC Custody Nominees
2 – J P Morgan Nominees Aus Ltd
3 – National Nominees Ltd
4 – Citicorp Nominees Pty Ltd

The above information can be gathered from the annual reports of these banking giants. These figures aren’t made readily available to anyone with internet access and a few search engine terms. No, the banks use measures such as publishing these details in image format tucked neatly away on their websites so as not to be found by search terms or even Google’s tentacles. Search engines only search for text so an image file saved under an innocuous name won’t be found by prying eyes whereas the same details loaded into a table on a their website would.

Just think about how many ads you for all these banks on television, in the newspaper on the radio and all over website banners, among other places, all pushing their products promising theirs is the best and that your money is better invested, or should I say spent, with them.

It’s a farce. A lie. A giant con.

They would have you believe that they’re all competing with each other and in that spirit of competitiveness give you the power to choose a product best suited for you over the others.

This power never existed. Well, that’s not totally accurate. You were given the illusion of power. It’s a clever technique employed by big corporations to get you to do exactly what they want. You feel that you have a choice based on clever marketing tactics when really the choice has already been made for you. The big banks are in fact colluding in order to retain the power you thought you had.

It’s the majority shareholders that have power. The real power to control the bank and everything it does. Don’t be fooled into thinking just because the bank CEO’s are earning multimillion dollar pay packets that they are in charge. They are there at the behest of these majority shareholders to do their bidding as they control the majority voting power.

So scroll back up and double check just who these corporations are that own the “Big 4”. I’ll let you do your own searching as to who owns these 4 global financial powerhouses.

By this time you’re probably wondering about the RBA (Reserve Bank of Australia). Well you should be anyway. A few years ago I was doing some research and trying to determine who owns the RBA. After many email enquiries and replies from many different people within the RBA I was given this as a reply…

“The Reserve Bank of Australia is wholly owned by the Australian Government”

At the time I received this reply it actually put me at ease as I was on a bit of a crusade to prove it was owned by the British royal family. So back then no alarm bells were going off for me on that one and the trail went cold so to speak.

Now when I think about those words, “The Reserve Bank of Australia is wholly owned by the Australian Government”, I get a sinking feeling in the pit of my stomach. For those who follow my site and read my articles you will remember a piece I did titled OPPT, Banks, Governments, Corporations and You.

Got that sinking feeling yet?

In that article I talk about how the Australian Government is actually a corporation that is registered with the Securities Exchange Commission in Washington D.C.

The shocking revelation is that this corporation masquerading as our government with unknown shareholders and by their own admission actually owns the Reserve Bank of Australia!

Here we see the highest form of collusion to create such an elaborate illusion for the Australian people. Never mind the man behind the curtain.

    Some great research there, General. And just think, we’re constantly told that “we’re” owners of these banks via investments by our superannuation funds… I guess that’s a way of blackmailing we the suckers into keeping bank profits high lest the banks fail and drag the entire debt-fuelled economy with it.

    Can’t wait to read your input as to the state of superannuation and the illusion that its Your Money! NOT!! The increase in super goes straight into super funds which are supposedly managed by lots of different well meaning super companies. AND…. the govt. tells you when you can have it. If there’s anything left of course. Now does anybody really understand where there super is invested and by whom? I can’t hear you, well maybe it’s time to these people to do a little more than just research into the subject of super. I’ve done mine and ensure not a cent goes into that yummy pool of funds

      To make things worse is the con job being pulled on the Australian public by the government propaganda spin doctors to get Aussies to add more of their hard earned cash into a super fund voluntarily and the corporation of Australia a.k.a our government will match what extra we add. Only to swindle it away when the next big manufactured crash comes.

    So can anyone tell me about King James ii of Australia that claims he has money for the people that will circulate his own promissory notes that he claims is legal tender/money/gold/currency/whatever from the royal banks of the commonwealth of Australia or the so called peoples parliament. And who is John Russell from the Australian Constitution and Crown Lawyers???

      In all honesty it doesn’t surprise me that they’re all owned by the same big corporations.
