The Venetian Conspiracy (archetype of bankster imperialism)

The Venetian Conspiracy

Great article by Webster Tarpley.  He pointedly avoids the J-Word so the message can get across.  Folks who are capable of understanding his historical references can put 2+2 together.   Venice operated world's most successful empire through finance & scheming & after centuries was forced to move their headquarters to City of London which has, for past century (& more) enslaved America into subsidizing their financial empire & fighting it's wars.  Venice set the pattern for current Wall St oligarchs trying to ruin America with debt & more importantly their anti-science "Green" depopulation agenda.  I include some excerpts:

Periods of history marked, like the one we are living through, by the convulsive instability of human institutions pose a special challenge for those who seek to base their actions on adequate and authentic knowledge of historical process. Such knowledge can come only through viewing history as the lawful interplay of contending conspiracies pitting Platonists against their epistemological and political adversaries.

There is no better way to gain insight into such matters than through the study of the history of the Venetian oligarchy, the classic example of oligarchical despotism and evil outside of the Far East.


Venice called itself the Serenissima Republica (Serene Republic), but it was no republic in any sense comprehensible to an American, as James Fenimore Cooper points out in the preface to his novel The Bravo. But its sinister institutions do provide an unmatched continuity of the most hideous oligarchical rule for fifteen centuries and more, from the years of the moribund Roman Empire in the West to the Napoleonic Wars, only yesterday in historical terms. Venice can best be thought of as a kind of conveyor belt, transporting the Babylonian contagions of decadent antiquity smack dab into the world of modern states.

The more than one and one-half millennia of Venetian continuity is first of all that of the oligarchical families and the government that was their stooge, but it is even more the relentless application of a characteristic method of statecraft and political intelligence. Venice, never exceeding a few hundred thousand in population, rose to the status of Great Power in the thirteenth century, and kept that status until the Peace of Westphalia in 1648, thanks to the most highly developed system of embassies, of domestic and foreign intelligence, and related operational potentials.
...
In the Middle Ages the Venetians were known as the archetypes of the parasite, the people who “neither sow nor reap.” For the Greeks, they were the hated “frogs of the marshes.” In Germany, a folk tale describes the merchant of Venice as an aged Pantaloon who makes his rounds robbing men of their human hearts and leaving a cold stone in their place.Venetian families are divided into two categories. First come the oldest families, or Longhi, who can claim to prove their nobility substantially before the year 1000. The Longhi include many names that are sadly familiar to the student of European history: Dandolo, Michiel, Morosini, Contarini, Giustinian (perhaps related to the just- mentioned Byzantine emperor), Zeno, Corner (or Cornaro), Gradenigo, Tiepolo, and Falier. These old families held a monopoly of the dogeship until 1382, at which time they were forced to admit the parvenu newcomers, or Curti, to the highest honor of the state. After this time new families like Mocenigo, Foscari, Malipiero, Vendramin, Loredano, Gritti, Dona, and Trevisan came into the ascendancy.

These families and the state they built grew rich through their parasitizing of trade, especially East-West trade, which came to flow overwhelmingly through the Rialto markets. But there is a deeper reality, one which even derogatory stories about spice merchants are designed to mask. The primary basis for Venetian opulence was slavery. This slavery was practiced as a matter of course against Saracens, Mongols, Turks, and other non-Christians. In addition, it is conclusively documented that it was a matter of standard Venetian practice to sell Christians into slavery. This included Italians and Greeks, who were most highly valued as galley slaves. It included Germans and Russians, the latter being shipped in from Tana, the Venetian outpost at the mouth of the Don, in the farthest corner of the Sea of Azov. At a later time, black Africans were added to the list and rapidly became a fad among the nobility of the republic.

Plato notes in Book VIII of The Republic that a “change in a constitution always begins from the governing class when there is a faction within; but so long as they are of one mind, even if they be a very small class, it is impossible to disturb them.” The threat of factionalization is located in the “storehouse full of gold, which every man has,” and which “destroys such a constitution.” The oligarchs “lay a sum of money, greater or less, according as the oligarchy is more or less complete, and proclaim that no one may share in the government unless his property comes up to the assessment. This they carry out by force of arms, or they have used terror before this to establish such a constitution.”...

Venice lasted as long as it did because of the effective subordination of the oligarchs and families to the needs of the oligarchy as a whole, by the ironclad delimitation of noble status to those already noble in 1297 and their male descendants, and by continuous terror against the masses and against the nobility itself...
The Venetian method of statecraft is based on Aristotle – the deepest Aristotelian tradition in the West. Long before the era of Albertus Magnus (1193-1280) and St. Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274), Venice had established itself as the chief center for the translation and teaching of Aristotle’s works...
Friedrich Schiller and William Shakespeare both analyze the manipulative methods employed by the Venetian secret intelligence establishment; both considered Venetian intelligence one of their most formidable enemies. Much of Schiller’s writing is dedicated in various ways to fighting the Venice- Genoa- Geneva combination that had held the financial reins of King Philip II of Spain...

Shakespeare’s “Othello, The Moor of Venice” is a more finished analysis of the same technique. It was written and performed shortly after 1603, when the Venetians and Genoese had acquired vast powers in England through the accession of their puppet James I to the throne.

Othello is a Moor, hired out to Venice as a mercenary, and at the apex of his power, having just won a victory over the Turkish fleet attacking Cyprus. He enjoys the full confidence of the Senate, and has just married Desdemona, the daughter of a patrician. Othello, the “erring barbarian,” is however something of a dumb giant: his proficiency in the arts of war is unmatched, but his emotional makeup tends decidedly toward the naive and infantile. He has no real insight into affairs of state, or into psychology. Above all, he is superstitious and has a propensity for jealousy.

All of these weaknesses are systematically exploited by “honest Iago,” a member of Othello’s staff who is determined to destroy him. Iago is the figure of the Venetian intelligence officer, an expert in what he calls “double knavery” – the art of manipulation. He sets out to destroy Othello using an accurate psychological profile of the Moor, and exploiting above all Othello’s naive willingness to trust his “honest Iago.”

The Venetian Conspiracy

from the cited....

On one occasion Pius II received the Venetian ambassador to the Roman court and condemned Venetian policy with these words:
 
“Your cause is one with thieves and robbers…. No power was ever greater than the Roman empire and yet God overthrew it because it was impious, and He put in its place the priesthood because it respected divine law…. You think [your] republic will last forever. It will not last long. Your population so wickedly gathered together will soon be scattered abroad. The offscourings of fishermen will be exterminated. A mad state cannot long stand.”

rome lives...venice?

also

"...Machiavelli noted that the two most dangerous forces in Italy around the turn of the century were the Venetians and the pope..."

Even the Catholics admit there were some bad popes.  & considering how big & powerful the Church was, it's no wonder that evil forces sought to co-opt it, introduce agents etc.  Tarpley writes of the Jesuits thusly, but also claims that the Church had pro-humanist factions too.

Machiavelli is interesting, conventional view of him is that he is a Kissinger-type cynic.  Only contrary view I've read is from LaRouche folks who say he was a progressive patriot.  Notably, the Wiki article on "The Prince" heavily relies on Leo Strauss, a viper.  Perhaps "The Prince" included a good helping of satire & sarcasm & was not meant to be taken entirely literally.

New York Jewish paper, Freiheit, of January 10th 1937:

 “According to the Jewish religion, the Pope is the enemy of the Jewish people by the very
fact that he is the head of the Catholic Church. The Jewish religion is opposed to Christianity and to the Catholic Church in particular.”




New York Jewish National Day of December 14th 1935:
 “The public schools must be kept clear of Christmas carols and other Christmas influences. We want all this Christmas propaganda stopped.”
"I hardly exaggerate. Jewish life consists of two elements: Extracting money and protesting."
-Nahum Goldmann, Ex-President of the World Jewish Congress

Only reason they keep Christmas on tv & movies is to jab at Christianity.  Christmas always shown as time of troubles, tragedy, anger etc.  Charlie Brown was about the only show with an actual Christian message.

Don't forget the main thing - the only thing - they like about Christmas - selling stuff.   They are torn between mentioning the hated holiday and not selling crap. 

Start your Holiday shopping right now and beat the Holiday rush!!!

Yeah, a local radio station plays "Christmas" music non-stop during December.  Was visiting w/friends on Christmas Day & dialed radio to that station & was surprised that, "Hey, no more Christmas music?".  Others were puzzled too until I explained the music was just to motivate folks to shop & since on Christmas Day it's too late, no more music.
