Trading PORTS

There's an interesting quid pro quo analysis at FXstreet of recent resignations at the Fed, the fall of the dollar, the coming invasion of Iran, and the recent ports deal with DPW. No doubt trading ports makes very good sense. But, can it be as simple as quid pro quo? I don't think so.
Turnover continues at the top posts of the Federal Reserve, and the inexperience we find leading this institution is alarming at a crucial time when U.S. monetary policy is going where no man has gone before, where the U.S. Dollar's status as the world's currency reserve is about to be whacked.

* * *

Fed Governors and Regional Bank Presidents are treated like gods. They have enormous power, prestige, and presence. Why quit? Why the wholesale resignations? Could it have to do with what's coming down the pike? . . . Could it be that the previous cadre of Fed leaders do not have the stomach for what is about to go down?

* * *

The last time a Middle Eastern nation announced it was going to accept only Euros for oil, President Bush ordered the invasion of that country . . . Next on the agenda may be Iran.

* * *

Now we find out this week, stunningly, that this Republican administration has not only agreed to hand over management of six of America's key seaports to a state-owned business in the United Arab Emirates, Dubois Ports, but when Republican Congressional leadership said it wanted a delay to study the decision and would pass legislation to accomplish this, Bush came out as passionate as we have ever seen him that he would veto any such legislation, that this deal will go through, like it or not. Bush has never vetoed any legislation in his six years in office, but he is ready to veto this one?

Why? What's the rush? Take a look at the following map. The United Arab Emirates just happens to be directly south of Iran, and on the opposite bank of the strategic Strait of Hormuz (or Ormuz). Quid pro quo? Are U.S. troops, warplanes, and Naval vessels headed for the United Arab Emirates in exchange for the collateral of United Arab Emirates' occupation of our U.S. seaports?
The author makes some very good points. But, has anyone considered who runs DPW?
Dubai, 24 January 2006: - Global ports operator DP World today welcomed news that one of its senior executives, Dave Sanborn, has been nominated by US President George W. Bush to serve as Maritime Administrator a key transportation appointment reporting directly to Norman Mineta the Secretary of Transportation and Cabinet Member.

The White House has issued a statement from Washington DC announcing the nomination. The confirmation process will begin in February.

Mr Sanborn currently holds the position of Director of Operations for Europe and Latin America for the Dubai-based company

Mohammed Sharaf, CEO, DP World said:
“While we are sorry to lose such an experienced and capable executive, it is exactly those qualities that will make Dave an effective administrator for MarAd. We are proud of Dave’s selection and pleased that the Bush Administration found such a capable executive. We wish him all the best in his new role.”

Ted Bilkey, Chief Operating Officer, DP World said:
“Dave’s decades of experience in markets around the world, together with his passion for the industry and commitment to its development, will allow him to make a positive contribution to the work of the Maritime Administration. We wish him well for the future.”

Mr Sanborn, a graduate of The United States Merchant Maritime Academy, joined DP World in 2005. He previously held senior roles with shipping lines CMA-CGM (Americas), APL Ltd and Sea-Land and has been based, besides the US, in Brazil, Europe, Hong Kong and Dubai during his career. He has also served in the US Naval Reserve.

So, this guy Dave after having spent, what, less than a year at DPW, gets nominated for a top maritime position by BUSH, after which Bush immediately announces a major deal between the US and the company his maritime nominee just left??? (It's not clear that he was confirmed yet.)

There is more to this than meets the eye. Someone with Dave's background does not not seamlessly float through such a high profile position in a huge company for such a short period of time, and then end up with a high profile nomination in the US government BY CHANCE. This is part of a complex plan.

Is this quid pro quo? Or are these coporate entities all part of one overarching global command and control center?

thanks, jc. There are too many coincidences about this deal and the corporations that are involved are not at all transparent.

So, you can't really tell who the REAL corporate owners of these humungous entities are, and in turn who really benefits and CONTROLS all these moves.

We may never know the truth but something tells me it's important to recognize that it's not as it appears.

I don't know if its a quid pro quo, but it is clear that the deal is part of typical Bush corporate cronyism.

"Corporations"--Really Just Conspiracies
(Mighty Thor, 27 Feb 06)

Yes, "anon" at 12:55, above, the "forest fire must burn itself out," mocking best efforts of human will--only God's will prevails. Life sucks, and gentiles (goyim) will allow themselves to be organized to kill each other.

So we don't really have a free market built upon rule-of-law, but a criminal, imperialist entity that strives to enforce MONOPOLY. Such are the present oligarchal "corporations"--mere criminal conspiracies.

Ahem, okay, but aside fm above, the Birchers at JBS.org have kept up on latest conspiracy capers for yrs.

"Qrswave" above, wonders, gosh who might these people be?--well duh, have u ever heard of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)?--47% Jew, I understand. "Zionists" on other hand, are the "lower-level" Jews, these pretend rivals playing "good-cop, bad-cop" charade. Jews (and "Sadduceans") work for both sides, for same goal.

Who are the people behind the huge countefeiting scam keeping wars ("perpetual war for perp peace," described by Orwell) going so gloriously and successfully at the moment?--and why wouldn't they expand operations, or shift them, as it suits them, eliminating possible opposition and competition?

We need an anti-conspiratorial cultural revolution modeled upon St. Constantine the Great--it's how we'll unite our great peoples against the Judeo-"Sadducean" (of modern-day, including Falwell, Robertson, et al.) conspirators--the exact and very same problem that confronted a preceding culture in similar empirial situation, those magnificent Romans of yore.

Thus we must continue to preach the truth and word of God to the elder generation so taken by the conspirators' hoaxful, fairy-tale historical canard and hersey to extent they, the "Greatest Generation" WON WORLD WAR II--which was really won only by Gross, horrible murdering Jews, "Sadduceans," and communists. We start with simple honest precepts. Honest elections and death to the Fed. Thor

Yes, qrswave, it is called the "mercantile elite" and it rules the world. It is not a conspiracy IMHO, but it is the transfer of governance to greed-driven human beings: merchants, bankers, MBAs, corporate lawyers, lobbyists, political parties, business dynasties, ruling dynasties, dictators etc. The alternate is men/women of principle and character (like JC pointed out in an earlier post). Unfortunately, it takes disaster for character to replace greed, and takes prosperity for greed to be the new "character". And the cycle continues.

If we, the people of character, do not take up our responsibility, then we default it to the greedy.

Very good, "Akber," but we need a theme song, a ruling ideal to capture people's imagination: For us in the West it can only be St. Constantine the Great." The alternative is "big brother"--big Jew. Thor
