The video, featuring a perfect English voice over, denounces the Federal Reserve:

…as history repeated itself, one of the great forms of corruption that the earth came to witness was the dark rise of bank notes, borne out of the satanic conception of banks, which mutated into a fraudulent system of enslavement orchestrated by the Federal Reserve in America – a private corporation and system that would, through the use of deceit and force, deprive people of their due, by imposing upon them the usage of the piece of paper that came to be known as the dollar bill.

“What better way to mute demands for a return to sound money and the gold standard, than by making them equivalent to jihadist terrorism?” Zero Hedge noted on Sunday.

The point is, “as the nuanced, C-grade made in Hollywood propaganda goes, is to pitch an anti-Fed, anti-fractional reserve, pro-gold standard ideology, and make it equivalent to the evil terrorist thoughts spread by the Islamic Jihadist group.”

As noted by and others, ISIS is a creation of the United States and the Gulf Emirates, specifically designed to overthrow Bashar al-Assad in Syria. This was admitted in declassified US Defense Intelligence Agency documents from 2012. Pop-Up Video Player

It should come as no surprise the Islamic State — which is not, in technical terms, even a state, and is instead a large group of marauding terrorists — would put out propaganda designed to demonize the predominate threat to the global elite: sound money.

What is truly astounding is the transparency of the effort.
