VSF: I am convinced BlackRock is the “asset manager” for the world wide geoengineering operations. This would make sense. Using American Elements (whose CEO is Jewish) for nanoparticle aluminum, barium, strontium, lithium, etc. Every transaction would afford them a profit, a slice, no matter how small, a percentage. This would explain how they quickly became “twice as profitable as Goldman” in a short time. The CEO of BlackRock, Laurence D. Fink is also a Jew.
These operations are the agendas of the Zionists based in Israel. No — I am not anti-Semitic. I am exposing the Draco-Zeta Grey Alien Invasion Agenda, which is using the Zionists to complete the take over of our planet, genocide those who cannot be entrained in the hive-mind, and turn the rest into slaves.
The plan is to vaccinate the world (which will in fact sicken & kill millions), implant track & trace microchips in us. Also crash the banking system, which is already collapsing, and make money digital so they can completely control it.
Read these articles and put the pieces together for yourself.
BlackRock & The Bank of Israel
VSF: The geoengineering ops are black — no one in any official capacity of employment dares to speak the truth about geoengineering and it cuts across governments — meaning Russia, China, etc. are cooperating.
I have also concluded the the Israeli Unit 8200 is part of this. They probably left the infamous bricks found at the riots.
BlackRock Mideast Foray May Grow With Israel Infrastructure Push
August 25, 2019, 4:51 AM PDT Updated on August 25, 2019, 9:00 PM PDT
The world’s largest asset manager BlackRock Inc. could add to its footprint in the Middle East by joining Israel’s infrastructure boom.
Representatives of the Israeli government and the New York-based financial giant are discussing an investment in the country’s infrastructure, according to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s top economic adviser Avi Simhon.
BlackRock expressed interest in an investment and Israel offered to help with any regulatory barriers, he said in an interview this month in Jerusalem, adding that it was too early for specifics. A spokeswoman for BlackRock in Israel declined to comment.
VSF: The Protocols of Zion are all coming true.
A one page summary from rense:
Goyim are mentally inferior to Jews and can’t run their nations properly. For their sake and ours, we need to abolish their governments and replace them with a single government. This will take a long time and involve much bloodshed, but it’s for a good cause. Here’s what we’ll need to do:
- Place our agents and helpers everywhere
- Take control of the media and use it in propaganda for our plans
- Start fights between different races, classes and religions
- Use bribery, threats and blackmail to get our way
- Use Freemasonic Lodges to attract potential public officials
- Appeal to successful people’s egos
- Appoint puppet leaders who can be controlled by blackmail
- Replace royal rule with socialist rule, then communism, then despotism
- Abolish all rights and freedoms, except the right of force by us
- Sacrifice people (including Jews sometimes) when necessary
- Eliminate religion; replace it with science and materialism
- Control the education system to spread deception and destroy intellect
- Rewrite history to our benefit
- Create entertaining distractions
- Corrupt minds with filth and perversion
- Encourage people to spy on one another
- Keep the masses in poverty and perpetual labor
- Take possession of all wealth, property and (especially) gold
- Use gold to manipulate the markets, cause depressions etc.
- Introduce a progressive tax on wealth
- Replace sound investment with speculation
- Make long-term interest-bearing loans to governments
- Give bad advice to governments and everyone else
Eventually the Goyim will be so angry with their governments (because we’ll blame them for the resulting mess) that they’ll gladly have us take over. We will then appoint a descendant of David to be king of the world, and the remaining Goyim will bow down and sing his praises. Everyone will live in peace and obedient order under his glorious rule.
Dawn of the BlackRock Era
The world’s largest asset manager is poised for overwhelming influence no matter who wins the next presidential election.
by Alexander Sammon
May 15, 2020
… increasingly vital over the past few years, rising as the few meaningful banking regulations that endure from the financial crisis blunt bank power to a minimal degree. And with the passage of the coronavirus bailout package, a new decade and a new economic catastrophe has brought a passing of the torch. The Goldman decade has begun to fade, giving way to our newest age: the BlackRock era.
BlackRock is the world’s biggest asset manager, handling $7.4 trillion in customer assets. It’s twice as profitable as Goldman. It’s got offices in 30 countries and clients in a hundred. The company’s Aladdin risk-management system, an industry-standard software tool that monitors trading, watches over another $20 trillion in assets for 200 other financial firms, as well as the Federal Reserve and European central banks. This makes BlackRock part money manager, part institutional investor, part software platform, and part government partner. It’s a pioneer in junk bonds, and has often been referred to as the world’s largest shadow bank.
In March, the Federal Reserve announced that it had tapped BlackRock to serve as an investment adviser and asset manager for multiple debt-buying programs on behalf of the U.S. central bank as part of the CARES Act bailout program, a money pot worth hundreds of billions of dollars. With BlackRock’s advisement, the Fed committed to buying unlimited purchases of Treasury bonds and mortgage-backed securities, as well as buying agency commercial mortgage-backed securities. Of course, that decision put BlackRock on both sides of a multitrillion-dollar bailout windfall: As Bloomberg reported, “Under the arrangement [BlackRock] could buy some of its own funds on behalf of the central bank.”
… BlackRock’s governmental ambitions aren’t just domestic. Currently, BlackRock is managing U.S. securities purchases for the central bank of Israel.
Philipp Hildebrand, who used to run Switzerland’s central bank, is a BlackRock vice chairman. George Osborne, the former U.K. chancellor, is a senior adviser. Friedrich Merz, a former high-ranking member of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s CDU party, was chairman of BlackRock Deutschland until last month, when he stepped down to focus on his campaign to replace Merkel as chancellor. In Mexico, BlackRock handles the country’s pension funds, while simultaneously owning the companies they invest in. It also secured a contract with the European Commission to advise on a project to integrate climate change into EU banking regulation. Did I mention that BlackRock is the world’s largest institutional investor in fossil fuels?

BlackRock is Bailing Out Its ETFs with Fed Money and Taxpayers Eating Losses; It’s Also the Sole Manager for $335 Billion of Federal Employees’ Retirement Funds
by Pam Martens – Russ Martens
BlackRock, the international investment management firm run by billionaire Larry Fink, has played an outsized role in Federal Reserve bailouts of Wall Street. As it turns out, it’s also been quietly managing hundreds of billions of dollars for more than five million federal government employees in their retirement plan, known as the Thrift Savings Plan (TSP).
During the last financial crisis of 2007 to 2010, the Federal Reserve gave BlackRock no-bid contracts to manage the toxic assets held in three programs known as Maiden Lane, Maiden Lane II and Maiden Lane III. These were Special Purpose Vehicles set up by the New York Fed. Maiden Lane purchased $30 billion of toxic assets from Bear Stearns as an inducement by the New York Fed to get JPMorgan to purchase the good parts of Bear Stearns. Maiden Lane II purchased mortgage-backed securities from the giant insurer, AIG, as part of a program to bail out its securities lending to Wall Street banks. Maiden Lane III purchased collateralized debt obligations (CDOs) on which AIG Financial Products had written credit default swaps that it couldn’t make good on to the Wall Street and foreign global banks to whom it owed the money. (Thus, the AIG bailout was actually a bailout of mega banks.)
… BlackRock is being allowed by the Fed to buy its own corporate bond ETFs as part of the Fed program to prop up the corporate bond market. According to a report in Institutional Investor on Monday, BlackRock, on behalf of the Fed, “bought $1.58 billion in investment-grade and high-yield ETFs from May 12 to May 19, with BlackRock’s iShares funds representing 48 percent of the $1.307 billion market value at the end of that period, ETFGI said in a May 30 report.”
No bid contracts and buying up your own products, what could possibly be wrong with that? To make matters even more egregious, the stimulus bill known as the CARES Act set aside $454 billion of taxpayers’ money to eat the losses in the bail out programs set up by the Fed. A total of $75 billion has been allocated to eat losses in the corporate bond-buying programs being managed by BlackRock. Since BlackRock is allowed to buy up its own ETFs, this means that taxpayers will be eating losses that might otherwise accrue to billionaire Larry Fink’s company and investors.
… BlackRock also manages pension funds for foreign governments, foreign local governments, and foreign central banks. According to a recent filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission by the central bank of Israel, BlackRock is investing its U.S. stock portfolio.
Barron’s reported last week that BlackRock is “the second- or third-largest owner of stock in Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, and Procter & Gamble, and among the top five in nearly every large U.S. company.” Because of BlackRock’s heavy influence with foreign central banks, some of which are also buying Microsoft, Apple, and Amazon, its role in the outlandish valuations of these companies may not be fully understood.
According to BlackRock’s April report to shareholders, as of March 31, 2020 the company was managing “approximately $6.47 trillion in assets on behalf of investors worldwide,” which is about six times what it was managing before the last financial crisis.
… BlackRock has an untoward coziness with government and Fed officials.
VSF: You can see how easily BlackRock when partnered with Rhodium, which analyzes data on the impacts of climate change, can be used to profit from what is known as ‘disaster’ capitalism. By geoengineering the planet, a drought, fire, floods, hurricanes can be generated to destroy crops on a large scale and allow the 1% to make millions betting on the price of commodities, like wheat, corn, sugar, etc.
BlackRock and Rhodium partner on climate analytics | BlackRock / Aladdin, BlackRock’s central nervous system
BlackRock has partnered with Rhodium Group to tackle a data challenge on the physical impacts of climate change. An independent research firm, Rhodium Group uses climate science, economics, big data and cloud computing to provide evidence-based insights into climate scenarios. Paired with our leadership in financial modeling and the power of Aladdin as a platform, Rhodium’s data allows us to develop vital new risk capabilities for our clients and for the industry.
This partnership deepens a collaboration that began in April 2019. Last year, our work with Rhodium produced a pilot study on the physical risks of climate change in the US, the results of which were published in the award-winning BlackRock Investment Institute report, “Getting Physical.” The research set a new standard for isolating the financial impacts of physical climate risk and providing actionable insights to investors looking to understand climate risk in their portfolios.
BlackRock financial modelers continue to work closely with Rhodium to define datasets for use in BlackRock’s new physical risk models. This work will power new Aladdin capabilities and add new risk metrics to our modeling platform. We will extend our research across asset classes and geographies over the course of this year.
Aladdin, BlackRock’s central nervous system
Aladdin is Blackrock:
Meet Aladdin, the computer “more powerful than traditional politics”
How a single computer system came to influence the value of vast swathes of the world’s financial assets.
Jody Kochansky would arrive at 6.30am at the Manhattan offices of BlackRock, and begin going through the printouts.
“I’m not a big morning person,” Kochansky admits. To compound the early start, the first job of the day was also the most arduous: “to take the risk reports, to flip the pages and literally to compare the portfolio as it looked today versus the portfolio as it looked the previous day, by hand.” The first web browser would not be created until later that year; “the delivery mechanism was paper”, but Kochansky and his team found a solution. “We said, let’s take this data, and rather than print it out, let’s sort it into a database, and have the computer compare the report today versus the report yesterday, across every position.”
This is how much money Aladdin manages: if you took every last cent out of every bank in every country in the world, emptied the wallets and pockets and penny jars of all 7.6 billion people, if you rummaged down the back of every sofa and emptied every till and safe until you collected every scrap of currency in the world, you would have a pile of cash worth around five trillion dollars. The total value of assets under management by BlackRock is $6.3 trillion. But Aladdin also delivers risk analysis on the assets managed by its clients, which are valued at more than double that amount. Overall, Aladdin has an effect on the management of around ten per cent of the world’s financial assets, or around $20 trillion. Over 25 years, it has grown into a system that is directly or indirectly responsible for more than four times the value of all the money in the world.
… it was the financial crisis of 2008 that really proved Aladdin as a significant influence on the global economy. As the government struggled to make sense of the febrile financial markets, asking an investment bank to help value the rest of Wall Street would have been, Kochansky puts it diplomatically, “a potential conflict”. “And so I think as these governments – it wasn’t just the US government – looked around and asked who had the capabilities to gain the insight into what’s happening in these portfolios, that’s a relatively short list.”
Kochanski left BlackRock in Nov.2019 after 27 years with the company. No comment from a BlackRock spokesman.
Kochanski Name Meaning
Polish (Kochanski) and Jewish (from Poland): habitational name for someone from a place called Kochan, in Siedlce voivodeship, or Kochany, now in Belarus.
BlackRock Is Making Big Data Bigger
The world’s largest asset manager is all-in on data science.
• Julie Segal
November 01, 2016
Kochansky, who oversees more than 1,500 developers for Aladdin, BlackRock’s central nervous system, compares now with then in the mortgage market. In its early days the firm predicted how quickly homeowners would prepay their loans — an essential question for a money manager founded on its expertise in complex mortgage securities — based on information like the average credit score of borrowers in a bundle of loans.
“Now Fannie and Freddie are giving you data that was unimaginable two decades ago about every mortgage,” says Kochansky. He stresses, though, that it’s not only about the breadth and volume of data: It’s about the science of models, including measuring their accuracy, fitting them within the current economy, and analyzing interrelated data sets. “You really need big data to wrestle this to the ground,” he adds.
Kochansky’s 24 years at the firm have included a number of stints working closely with Goldstein, one of them building the Aladdin business from 1998 to 2007 and another rebuilding the platform after the 2009 acquisition of Barclays Global Investors.
Big Pharma “Criminal” Influence On Research Exposed In Secret Recording Of Lancet And NEJM Editors-In-Chief
A secretly recorded meeting between the editors-in-chief of The Lancet and the New England Journal of Medicine reveal both men bemoaning the “criminal” influence big pharma has on scientific research.
According to Philippe Douste-Blazy, France’s former Health Minister and 2017 candidate for WHO Director, the leaked 2020 Chattam House closed-door discussion between the EIC’s – whose publications both retracted papers favorable to big pharma over fraudulent data.
“Now we are not going to be able to, basically, if this continues, publish any more clinical research data because the pharmaceutical companies are so financially powerful today, and are able to use such methodologies, as to have us accept papers which are apparently methodologically perfect, but which, in reality, manage to conclude what they want them to conclude,” said Lancet EIC Richard Horton.
Operation Warp Speed announces finalists of its funding initiative
The initiative ‘Operation Warp Speed’ has the goal to support the production of 300 million Covid-19 vaccine doses for the US by early 2021. Now, five finalists for funding have been chosen – AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson, Merck, Moderna and Pfizer. The timeline for the production of such a high number of vaccine doses with candidates only in Phase I or Phase II trials is very optimistic, given that vaccine developments have required a minimum of five years in the past. By picking big pharma companies that are seasoned vaccine developers and manufacturers, the initiative is taking a logical approach.
However, no explanation was provided as to which criteria led to the choice of Covid-19 vaccine candidates from these five companies. Candidates included are not using traditional approaches to vaccine development, like inactivated or subunit vaccines. Also not included is the candidate developed by Sanofi and GSK that uses Sanofi’s recombinant insect cell technology and GSK’s adjuvant, both used in approved and marketed products. Sanofi has not yet started clinical trials, but neither have vaccine candidates developed by J&J and Merck.
mRNA vaccines developed by Moderna / NIH and BioNTech / Pfizer are in Phase I and Phase I / II respectively and Moderna is planning to start a Phase III trial with 30,000 participants in July. Considering that no mRNA has been approved to date, the speed of the development is astounding. However, given the urgent need to stop the Covid-19 pandemic, providing sufficient funds to run clinical trials and increase manufacturing capacities, as well as accelerating regulatory procedures like clinical trial approvals and adaptive trial designs are paramount.
The Looming Bank Collapse
The U.S. financial system could be on the cusp of calamity. This time, we might not be able to save it.
Frank Partnoy is a law professor at UC Berkeley.
… on the balance sheets of the big banks, and it could be cataclysmic. Imagine if, in addition to all the uncertainty surrounding the pandemic, you woke up one morning to find that the financial sector had collapsed.
… memories of the 2008 crash still so fresh. But banks learned few lessons from that calamity, and new laws intended to keep them from taking on too much risk have failed to do so. As a result, we could be on the precipice of another crash, one different from 2008 less in kind than in degree. This one could be worse.
… The reforms were well intentioned, but, as we’ll see, they haven’t kept the banks from falling back into old, bad habits. After the housing crisis, subprime CDOs (collateralized debt obligations) naturally fell out of favor. Demand shifted to a similar—and similarly risky—instrument, one that even has a similar name: the CLO, or collateralized loan obligation. A CLO walks and talks like a CDO, but in place of loans made to home buyers are loans made to businesses—specifically, troubled businesses.
CLOs bundle together so-called leveraged loans, the subprime mortgages of the corporate world. These are loans made to companies that have maxed out their borrowing and can no longer sell bonds directly to investors or qualify for a traditional bank loan. There are more than $1 trillion worth of leveraged loans currently outstanding. The majority are held in CLOs.
Just as easy mortgages fueled economic growth in the 2000s, cheap corporate debt has done so in the past decade, and many companies have binged on it.
Unless you work in finance, you probably haven’t heard of CLOs, but according to many estimates, the CLO market is bigger than the subprime-mortgage CDO market was in its heyday. The Bank for International Settlements, which helps central banks pursue financial stability, has estimated the overall size of the CDO market in 2007 at $640 billion; it estimated the overall size of the CLO market in 2018 at $750 billion. More than $130 billion worth of CLOs have been created since then, some even in recent months. Just as easy mortgages fueled economic growth in the 2000s, cheap corporate debt has done so in the past decade, and many companies have binged on it.
… Powell and Mnuchin have downplayed any trouble CLOs could pose for banks, arguing that the risk is contained within the CLOs themselves.
These sanguine views are hard to square with reality. The Bank for International Settlements estimates that, across the globe, banks held at least $250 billion worth of CLOs at the end of 2018.
… So while the banks restrict their CLO investments mostly to AAA‑rated layers, what they really own is exposure to tens of billions of dollars of high-risk debt. In those highly rated CLOs, you won’t find a single loan rated AAA, AA, or even A.
How can the credit-rating agencies get away with this? The answer is “default correlation,” a measure of the likelihood of loans defaulting at the same time. The main reason CLOs have been so safe is the same reason CDOs seemed safe before 2008. Back then, the underlying loans were risky too, and everyone knew that some of them would default. But it seemed unlikely that many of them would default at the same time. The loans were spread across the entire country and among many lenders. Real-estate markets were thought to be local, not national, and the factors that typically lead people to default on their home loans—job loss, divorce, poor health—don’t all move in the same direction at the same time. Then housing prices fell 30 percent across the board and defaults skyrocketed.
Loan defaults are already happening. There were more in April than ever before. It will only get worse from here.
… “I’ve been concerned about AAA CLOs failing in the next crisis for several years,” Griffin told me in May. “This crisis is more horrifying than I anticipated.”
… Meanwhile, loan defaults are already happening. There were more in April than ever before. Several experts told me they expect more record-breaking months this summer. It will only get worse from there.
… Later this summer, leveraged-loan defaults will increase significantly as the economic effects of the pandemic fully register. Bankruptcy courts will very likely buckle under the weight of new filings. (During a two-week period in May, J.Crew, Neiman Marcus, and J. C. Penney all filed for bankruptcy.) We already know that a significant majority of the loans in CLOs have weak covenants that offer investors only minimal legal protection; in industry parlance, they are “cov lite.” The holders of leveraged loans will thus be fortunate to get pennies on the dollar as companies default—nothing close to the 70 cents that has been standard in the past.
As the banks begin to feel the pain of these defaults, the public will learn that they were hardly the only institutions to bet big on CLOs. The insurance giant AIG—which had massive investments in CDOs in 2008—is now exposed to more than $9 billion in CLOs. U.S. life-insurance companies as a group in 2018 had an estimated one-fifth of their capital tied up in these same instruments. Pension funds, mutual funds, and exchange-traded funds (popular among retail investors) are also heavily invested in leveraged loans and CLOs.
… The big banks use similar structures, called “variable interest entities”—companies established largely to hold off-the-books positions. Wells Fargo has more than $1 trillion of VIE assets, about which we currently know very little, because reporting requirements are opaque. But one popular investment held in VIEs is securities backed by commercial mortgages, such as loans to shopping malls and office parks—two categories of borrowers experiencing severe strain as a result of the pandemic.
… At some point, rumors will circulate that one major bank is near collapse. Overnight lending, which keeps the American economy running, will seize up. The Federal Reserve will try to arrange a bank bailout. All of that happened last time, too.
… The faltering bank will fail, with others lined up behind it.
And then, sometime in the next year, we will all stare into the financial abyss. At that point, we will be well beyond the scope of the previous recession, and we will have either exhausted the remedies that spared the system last time or found that they won’t work this time around. What then?
… The financial sector isn’t like other sectors. If it fails, fundamental aspects of modern life could fail with it. We could lose the ability to get loans to buy a house or a car, or to pay for college. Without reliable credit, many Americans might struggle to pay for their daily needs.
It is a distasteful fact that the present situation is so dire in part because the banks fell right back into bad behavior after the last crash—taking too many risks, hiding debt in complex instruments and off-balance-sheet entities, and generally exploiting loopholes in laws intended to rein in their greed. Sparing them for a second time this century will be that much harder.
… A bank shouldn’t be able to keep $1 trillion worth of assets off its books.
If we do manage to make it through the next year without waking up to a collapse, we must find ways to prevent the big banks from going all in on bets they can’t afford to lose. Their luck—and ours—will at some point run out.
