The Phartford Files: Case of the Bungling Banks – Epilogue
Submitted by Ironside
Today is Day 08 of the latest ATM skimming in Barbados (I am counting from Monday 08 July) and unless I have missed the news, there has been no formal public apology from the Bankers Association or from any individual bank so far. Pastor Dear’s rebuke seems to have fallen on deaf ears.
I am writing this epilogue primarily because of a question asked by a commentator on the original article in response to a further comment I had made. Here is an extract of my comment:

The problems we are facing in Barbados are not unique to this neck of the woods. If we take a global view of the matter, one can clearly see now why the time is fast approaching when everyone will have to be a walking point of contact with the financial system…the time when plastics are a thing of the past and subcutaneous implants are it. And I can now see why many will welcome it!
For those not familiar with the language, “subcutaneous” means “under the skin” a reference to implantation of microchips in human and animal bodies If your first reaction to this is “pure science fiction”, it means you have been off the planet too long and it’s time to re-enter Earth’s atmosphere. As we shall show, this is all W.I.P (Work-In-Progress).
At this point, let me open myself to the charge of being a conspiracy theorist, by saying that there are two good reasons why the banks didn’t/ still don’t feel pressured to apologize or, as I argued in the original article, to up their game with respect to providing better ATM security, considering that this is the third time this has happened in recent times.
#1: Reading between and beyond the lines, the bank’s position is that you (the victim) are the chief suspect! When they say they need to investigate, they mean that they need to investigate “you”. Of course, that is not what they actually said! Moreover, it would be too obvious for them to ask that every “victim-suspect” be interviewed by the police…give the bank some credit for a change (puns intended)! Of course, your front line bank employee is either unaware of or not necessarily a willing party to this. So don’t shoot the messenger.
But we cannot doubt that the victims have been investigated as potential culprits or co-conspirators. Clearly the banks don’t give a phart anymore about customer loyalty or their favourite promotional phrase “valuable customer”. The charade of delaying the return of funds is all window dressing, aided and abetted by the current fraud legislation and manipulated – as always- by the bigger banking powers/owners across the globe.
From our perspective as victims, it is either that you have been skimmed or not. If you have been skimmed, the police investigation – unless they are investigating you- is irrelevant because you still have to get back your money. What we are arguing – and still angry about – is the missing upfront apology and the length of time taken to restore the funds of the victims.
#2: The banking elite across the world very well know that in order to get people accept an unpalatable measure such as skin implants, they have to create a crisis that drives the masses to that inescapable solution. Foisting it upon people without an urgent rationale will simply bring resistance.
These “bigger banking powers” know, as any biologist knows, that people are like the cold-blooded (poikilothermic) frog, which you can boil to its death simply by raising the temperature of the water in which it sits, a few degrees at a time.
So-called conspiracy theorists (e.g. David Icke) call this psycho-social process, “problem-reaction-solution”. Here is how it works: (1) create a problem (let there be a series of ATM skimmings) (2) let the public react in outrage repeatedly (as we do each time this skimming occurs) and (3) then offer the “solution” (an under-the skin chip).
While I may take issue with some of Icke’s “conspiracy excesses” you have to agree with him that this “problem-reaction-solution” psycho-social engineering formula actually works. It takes time, but it works! We have seen it with the “justified” burgeoning electronic surveillance on citizens as practised in the US and other countries and with the acceptance of the LGBT (now LGBTQ) movement. It is now work-in-progress with the “degenderization of the child” movement; if you know someone who is pregnant, get ready to welcome an unsuspecting “theyby” or two the world!
If you still have any doubt that this subcutaneous chipping is W.I.P read these two articles:

“But how about those of us black people who are very prone to keloid scarring (growing flesh)?” asked a fellow blogger. Well, I am sure they will find a solution to that because technology is just marvellous isn’t it?”
What should trouble us more, is the knowledge that an advanced form of this chipping was predicted in the Bible in the context of global commerce:
It [the beast or political directorate] also forced all people, great and small, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, so that they could not buy or sell unless they had the mark, which is the name of the beast or the number of its name. (Rev 13:16-17)
Perhaps we are some distance from the exact technological state predicted in the Bible; such a state would, however, be a natural progression from the chip as we know it today.
But as I said before, I am not expecting to be around when this new financial world order is unleashed. Praemonitus, praemunitus. [To be forewarned is to be forearmed!]
