President of China Minsheng Bank Steps Down

President of China Minsheng Bank Steps Down


HONG KONG — The China Minsheng Banking Corporation, one of China’s biggest financial institutions, said on Saturday that its president, Mao Xiaofeng, had resigned for personal reasons unrelated to the bank’s operation, after published reports that he had been taken away to assist the country’s anti-corruption investigators.

Mr. Mao, 42, was considered a rising star in the financial industry and was named president just last year. He was the youngest leader of any major Chinese bank and was a longtime Communist Party official who had studied for a master’s degree at Harvard.

The bank named Hong Qi, its chairman, to serve as acting president.

In its statement, Minsheng gave no explanation for the resignation and no indication whether Mr. Mao had been questioned by or was assisting investigators. But Caixin, a respected business magazine, said on Friday that Mr. Mao had been taken away to help with an investigation led by the Central Commission for Discipline Inspection, China’s anti-corruption agency.

Caixin and other Chinese publications reported that Mr. Mao’s case was linked to an investigation into Ling Jihua, once a top aide to former President Hu Jintao. Mr. Ling was detained late last year on accusations of corruption and abuse of power.

The resignation of Mr. Mao comes during an extensive crackdown on corruption that has rocked the upper echelons of China’s political system and created enormous anxiety among private entrepreneurs and the leaders of state-run companies, who fear they could be drawn into the cases.

President Xi Jinping’s extraordinarily bold anti-corruption campaign has already ensnared the former domestic security chief Zhou Yongkang, who once served on the powerful Politburo Standing Committee. The Communist Party has also brought cases against the former People’s Liberation Army commander Xu Caihou.

If Mr. Mao is being questioned in an anti-corruption investigation, it would be the first time that the leader of a major financial institution has been tied to one of the cases.

China Minsheng Bank was founded in 1996 as one of the country’s first privately controlled financial institutions. The bank, based in Beijing, has thrived by lending to small entrepreneurs and businesses and has become one of the world’s biggest banks, with more than $500 billion in assets. Its major investors have included the Fosun Group and the billionaire entrepreneurs Liu Yonghao and Shi Yuzhu.

In recent months, a little-known private insurer in China called Anbang Insurance has been building up a major stake in Minsheng. In October, Anbang agreed to pay $1.95 billion to acquire the landmark 47-story Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City from Hilton Worldwide Holdings. Among the owners and directors of Anbang are Wu Xiaohui, a businessman who married the granddaughter of the Chinese leader Deng Xiaoping, who died in 1997, and Chen Xiaolu, the son of Chen Yi, a revolutionary commander who served with Mao Zedong.

The earliest reports of Mr. Mao’s troubles came late Friday, after Caixin said he had been removed by regulators as party secretary at Minsheng, one of the top positions at the bank.

People’s Daily, the official mouthpiece of the Communist Party, later said that Minsheng employees were warned over the weekend to be ready to “respond to a possible emergency.”

Mr. Mao joined China Minsheng in 2002. According to his official biography, he studied in Hunan Province, and he worked as the director of the general office of the central committee of China Communist Youth League from 1999 to 2002, a part of the Communist Party that is said to be closely aligned with Mr. Hu, the former Chinese president, and Mr. Ling.

The spreading alchemy of central bank money-printing

Money is confusing because bankers equate money with value. Money is not value, money is an abstraction of value, first it was gold, but that was hard to carry, then was it printed paper which was fractionally reserved like the gold system before it, and then it became an IOU for your value as a human being (Your VALUE as Eternal Essence in Body - which they monetized in numerous ways like birth certificate bonds, prison bonds, etc.) which they never told you they monetized, gave you no remuneration in consideration for its use, and loaned back your value to you with interest via the central banking system. Then in the 1990s along came computer created derivatives using algorithms so complicated nobody could ever calculate the risk of these non-linear instruments or predict them turbulent markets... which gave them a completely audit free way to build that mountain of debt based paper even higher... That's why they talk in circles, because if they told you the truth.. you'd hold them responsible for what they have done with it. And they are very very afraid of that... -AK

Money for nothing and recovery for free? U.S.'s economic turnaround pulls EU into the pool

By Neil Macdonald, CBC News Posted: Jan 28, 2015 5:00 AM ET Last Updated: Jan 28, 2015 5:01 AM ET


Neil Macdonald
Senior Washington Correspondent

Two years ago, I sat in the hushed fortress of the Bank of England, listening to one of its secretive boffins, a languid fellow named Paul Fisher, explain the creation and meaning of money.

He reached into his wallet and fished out a 10-pound note.

This note is worth 10 pounds, he said, because you and I and all the people walking around on the streets out there believe it's worth 10 pounds.

That's it. That's the only reason it has any value beyond the intrinsic value of the paper and ink itself. It's all about trust and belief.

Forget any notion you might have about every pound, or every dollar, being backed up by that much capital out there in the economy.

The gold standard was a myth, too, by the time it was abandoned in the Seventies. There was never anywhere near enough gold to back up all the American dollars in circulation.

So, money is worth what it is only because we continue to trust it, explained Fisher, and any central bank can print more without debasing it as long as everyone keeps trusting and it's all managed carefully by wise people, to wit the central bankers, who are unelected and make their decisions in secret.

It was a dizzying, counterintuitive lesson.

A few months earlier, the head of Germany's central bank, Jens Weidmann, took another view of money, one much closer to my Protestant sensibilities.

He began the same way Fisher did, asking rhetorically what money is, then answering his own question: "Money is that which serves as money."

He then quoted Goethe's Faust, probably the foremost literary work in the German canon.

In part two of the fable, the emperor is whinging about his constant need for more gold, and Mephistopheles, the devil, advises him that all he really needs to do is sign some paper and call it money and everyone will accept it, and all his problems will be solved.

The venal emperor and his courtiers proceed to do just that, "drowning their desires with love and wine," a Goethe line Weidmann quoted directly.

Eventually, the devil disappears and they realize the currency is worthless. The devil's money, Weidmann told his audience, led to inflation.

Core Structural Changes

Core Structural Changes
by Lisa Renee ~ Energic Synthesis


These new cosmic frequencies are forcing everything hidden to be revealed in so that core structural changes can be developed in order to survive or progress forward. The operating system of organizations and entities must change in value from a closed (exclusive) system to an open (inclusive) operating system, in order to evolve and survive ongoing in these new frequencies. We may be required now to build a new platform for our life, or make small or big changes to how we function in our day to day life.

The higher frequency you are working within that is inside any of these old organized structures will reflect the sudden onset of collapse, immediate chaotic changes or economic flatline. As an example, people that are working within jobs of creative, artistic or spiritual interest will have an immense pressure to change their attitudes, values and rules of engagement to reflect a matched higher vibration. The matched vibration is open and inclusive – not hidden or exclusive. The more dense control structures take more time to dismantle fully, and although not impervious to radical chaotic change, will be slower because of the bureaucratic red tape of the governmental and societal systems that are very slow to make progressive changes. These systems are collapsing, but are meeting a critical mass of its “collaborative collapse” as so many of the World Pillar control systems are interdependent and falsely propped up on each other. These are completely unsustainable systems built upon competition and divide and conquer.

During this period, when challenged by the 3D structure, practice states of engaged detachment to such scenarios as accusations, betrayals, legal and financial compliance issues, losing material objects, etc. The entire base foundation of one’s primary support structure is changing now. YOU may be pulled out of places or organizations that you were previously working, living or removed from people that you were collaborating with. Meditate and rest a lot, as dealing with these types of issues can be quite physically draining and stressful. Many of us must withdraw continually to our inner sanctum to gather inner strength and energy for the next round of changes.

The old control matrix and the hidden entities manipulating and using it are barking, biting and scratching in every way they can to gain some momentum. The control matrix is an intrinsic part of all of our banking/money, legal, educational, medical/drugs, compliance structures and job systems, so these areas have been slapping us silly with all they got. The closed control system model is deranged and broken. It has been revealing its mad psychosis to us more and more with every passing day. The desperation of these entities behind the control of these systems is desperate when it is realized that they cannot function in the same way anymore. As a result to this desperation, more mind controlled automatons appear with a standard boiler plate to wield more bi-polar attempts to force mass compliance to their generated fear and terrorist mechanism. Unfortunately, the unconscious masses are being mostly preyed upon to be the enforcer of these negative agendas, in fear of a paycheck or security for their families.

G.R.A.L.

It feels as if everyone I’ve ever been, in every lifetime, has settled in, pulled up a chair and is leaning forward with their hands on their knees, watching, waiting and expecting the show to start. They are all smiling, knowingly…  (Is this integration?) I don’t have the heart to tell them that the show has not even been picked, let alone begun. 

What has been chosen (by the one writing this post) is perhaps the least effective; tension mixed with a bit of apprehension all rolled into illness.  Self-absorption rules the day, and even typing these words feels like an extraordinary effort.  So what gives?

It’s not for lack of ideas; there are legal pads full of them, surrounding my desk.  It’s not for lack of ability either, (remember all those “other “versions watching and waiting?  They have done and been, well, everything and everyone.)

It’s more like – to what end?  This journey has been incredible and life changing and seemingly never-ending.  We thought it was going to be over 2 years ago, got over that and moved into, well, anticipating  “the event”, and we are still here.  The changes and disclosures and exposures are happening in quiet ways all over the globe.  The headlines today could be ripped from the media two years ago… expectations for global financial collapse still predominate.  How many times have we hoarded food or cash?  Too many.

There have been weeks of contemplation.  After years of signing “we are the ones we’ve been waiting for”, the wait is truly over in my heart.  I get something now, and not just intellectually.  I get that no one is coming, not via space ship or celestial light or streets of gold.  I get that it’s me.  This reality/new paradigm/life/world that I am living is entirely/100%/absolutely and in no uncertain terms my own.

That’s just the way it works.   There is no reason and no explanation that will explain this. It is the slavery mindset that thinks “why?” We are moving out of that now.  This realization is part of what comes with accessing your godhood/your authority/your sovereignty.   A god stands there, knowing the answer, and gives. What does he/she give?  Everything he/she has.  

We’ve been misled about many things and lied to about many more.  What you may think constitutes godhood is nothing more than the expressed desires of a worship hungry being.  We are the gods here.  Humans.  These words may sound like blasphemy.  They are not.
The media, churches, governments and schools have been broadcasting FEAR and SEPARATION for so long; it has seeped into the depths of our consciousness and feels true.

It is not true. Everything you’ve been told until very recently is suspect. I know that you know this, but what do we do with it? I’ve been contemplating questions like – “What will it take to live as the god I AM?” “How will it feel to love 24/7?” These are the hallmarks of the new Paradigm; and what we came to know, to live, to BE.

The answer to “To what end?” is given then – to get, not just intellectually, but in every fiber of our being, sovereignty; to embody Agape.  This cannot be told to us by anyone other than ourselves.  It is humanity that we’ve been waiting for, the people that have the answers, and the collective that will determine a new way to be.  We will discover together what it is like to live as sovereign humans.  We will form new ways to be in relationships and business, families and games.  Oneness will be realized in the same way we do everything else, as a product of necessity.  There is no one who can do this for us.  It is time and we are the ones standing here. 

This will take movement beyond situations where there is someone placed higher than the rest of the crowd, on a stage.  This will take community.  None of us have done this while human.  We will have to help each other.

What will change now is everything.  This will happen in your own life and in mine.  It may not make the headlines yet that is irrelevant.  It will happen because you have intended it.  You who are reading these words have an investment in living as the free, sovereign being you are.  You predict oneness and global peace.  You allow love, and in fact are expecting it.  What will create this is a gathering together with a unified intent. Who will create this – is YOU.

To move this effort forward I’ve begun the Hundredth Monkey Project.  The intent for it is that together we can move past the fear & hesitation that blocks our power, into an empowered life grounded in self-love.  I’ve asked the group that my partner channels to join us.  Not because they know better than we do, they don’t (they are not living human lives).  What they bring to our “Monkey Project” is the voice of our greater selves and a different point of view.  They exist in a realm that we have come to call “the Jello”, it is a place of unconditional acceptance; we have come to name the atmosphere they exist in GRAL (Glorious Radiant Love).  From a perspective like that, only extremely positive energy is infused into the space and that has been a welcome assist.  They represent a place we are creating right now, on earth, as this new Paradigm.

There are efforts at community cropping up everywhere now as we co-create the new.  This project is not the only one, not by a long shot.  We are not meant to do this alone.  We are meant to connect.  I wish for all of us a place that feels like home.  

There is a plaque hanging in my kitchen and it says “There are two things to give our children.  One is roots and the other is wings.”  2015 is the time to find a comfortable place from which you can fly. 

We are the Ones we’ve been waiting for.
Namaste,
