Benjamin Fulford - Nobel Genius or Deluded Whack Job?

Written by Nippon Sekai   
Monday, 23 June 2008

Canadian journalist Benjamin Fulford (ex-Asia-Pacific bureau chief for Forbes Magazine) who lives in Kobe "confronts" the Yamaguchi-gumi from outside their headquarters.

He performs a "dojo yaburi" which is normally something done in martial arts where someone (normally the student) challenges the sensei. In this case, Fulford decided that on June 18, 2008, he would "confront" the Yamaguchi-gumi (六代目山口組; one of Japan's largest yakuza organizations and one of the largest crime syndicates in the world) for an apology for the crimes they have committed against their own people, how they've betrayed their own yakuza principles, and to also ask them stop acting like a gang and become a corporation. In the first video (I normally dislike linking to YouTube videos since they intermittently throw a "video is no longer available" message - if you get this, try reloading this page), he provides some background and in the next 4 clips, he goes on his half-an-hour rant attracting a smattering of curious Japanese onlookers who must be thinking, this foreigner is f'ing crazy and has a deathwish.



Fulford also had a 2.5 hour interview with Project Camelot back in February where the entire interview sounds like it could be an actual novel and movie. Rather than provide my own summary, here is the Project Camelot introduction.

The Ultimatum : Benjamin Fulford

Tokyo, Japan
February 2008

If you need a bodyguard, it's too late. You have to make them not want to shoot you.
Benjamin Fulford

The son of a Canadian diplomat, Benjamin Fulford rebelled against his upbringing and at the age of 17 made his way by boat into the heart of the Amazon to live with a tribe of former cannibals. Continuing to seek answers and better understand Western society, he spent time in a self-sufficient community in Argentina before heading to attend university in Japan.

Principled, brave, and still a diehard idealist after all these years, he resigned as Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine after investigating a scandal which the editor refused to report. As he researched global affairs further in his own time, he uncovered for himself the complex web which is global financial control at the hands of the Rockefellers and the Rothschilds - and also the existence of racially targeted bioweapons such as SARS.

It was these plans for global depopulation that upset some important and powerful factions in Japan, Taiwan and China. After being approached by a real-life, present-day Ninja, matters came to a head in 2007 when Benjamin became the first Westerner for 500 years to be admitted into the ranks of the Eastern Secret Societies, a vast group with six million members. Acting as their spokesman, he stepped up to the plate to deliver a simple message to the Illuminati:

Recognize that your time is over, step down without a fight, and allow the world to thrive as it should - or face the consequences from up to 100,000 professional assassins for whom no love is lost towards the self-styled ruling elite of the planet.

This was first communicated through Dr Henry Makow and Jeff Rense in July 2007. Project Camelot has now traveled to Japan to meet with Benjamin Fulford personally. Our comprehensive interview presents the far-reaching and literally incredible background story - and will also enable the Illuminati, who we have every confidence watch our videos carefully, to be reminded that the ultimatum is real, serious, and still in force.

Armed also with a contagiously optimistic vision of the future, Benjamin is fully prepared to be the next Finance Minister for Japan. His plans for how he would spend Japan's $5 trillion of foreign reserves to eliminate global poverty are plausible and inspiring as practical steps, way beyond rhetoric, to repair the generations of damage done by a ruthless ruling elite. This is a man with a deep understanding of both East and West, a global economic historian who thinks way outside of the box, a lover of peace who is unafraid to speak warrior words.

In this comprehensive three part video, Parts 1 and 2 focus on global financial history and Benjamin's most interesting personal story leading up to his approach by the Ninja. Part 3 contains the details of The Ultimatum itself.

Now the first thought when you read this is that this guy must be an insane, crazy, deluded, paranoid conspiracy theorist nutjob. I would suggest watching the videos (if you haven't already) to get a better idea of his entire angle.



So after watching these, do you think Benjamin Fulford is some mental nutcase or is this guy a genius? (sorry, the comments subsystem is not ready so this is something you can think about or discuss elsewhere).

My opinion is that the answer to this is not clear cut black and white. First of all, this guy is not stupid. He actually has some well intentioned and levelheaded ideas even if they are a bit idealistic (the problem is that humans in general cannot agree on even the smallest things; yes, there is compromise but what Fulford is talking about is a much more complex topic where everyone will have their own opinions on how to accomplish things resulting in the inevitable disagreements and conflicts which will translate into slow-or-no progress). However, there are other parts of his story that are just way too tin foil hat crazy like the earthquake machine and a free energy source (there are more if you watch through everything). If these things are even remotely true, then the story doesn't even make sense (like most stories that have a slant). If that sort of technology exists, this secret society would have cut to the chase and utilized all of that to get what they wanted yesterday. If the objective was depopulating the planet by 2 billion, they could have accomplished that yesterday. Furthermore, when you watch him, you can tell he is way too mentally deep into his story where reality and fiction cannot be easily separated. He looks tired and exhausted in all his interviews; it must take a lot of energy and mental power to cover every single angle. Or since he was once part of the media and knows all the tricks on twisting the story around, this could all just be an elaborate lie and total chicanery.

Again, within all of this, he does have some valid and very noble intentions. IF any of this is really sincere, then I can actually grok what he wants to ideally achieve; he displays a sense of empathy in parts of the video. IF any of this is really sincere, I commend him on his child like dream of wishing that everyone can get along peacefully and be happy. It sort of reminds me of the video that was released on Nico Nico Douga, Okkusenman! "My Memories are 110 Million" which in a nutshell is remembering how life was much simpler when we were kids, how we all had this very simple and innocent view of the world around us, and how much more fun it was only to find that as we've grown older, we've become negative, cynical, live in a constrained and endless monotony, forgotten how to enjoy life, and don't know how to treat our fellow human with dignity and respect (in short, innocence lost). What the hell, this is so off topic already; here is the video with subtitles for those who haven't seen it.


But again, the cynical part of me feels that this is a ploy to prey on peoples emotions since that is one of the oldest tricks in the book. Is it actually real when he cracks several times emotionally when he mentions children (refer to around 21 minutes into part 3 for example)? IF any of this is really sincere, then I believe deep down he really does want to do the world some good. But this whole "New World Order" conspiracy theory in his story (of which, the yakuza fit somewhere into the picture as foot armys of the west) just makes me a tad bit more cynical. Now he knows like most do the level of involvement that the yakuza has in Japanese business, government, politics, the media, entertainment, financial markets, etc. If there is money, they are there. Why do you think in JAV (a perfect example because the mizu shobai trade is traditionally an area that has plenty of yak involvement), you sometimes find filmings taking place in what has to be a real ryokan onsen or what looks like a real convenience store? That's because they are and are probably part of a larger holding that happens to have ties to the yakuza. The whole thing is complex with the front companies they operate (some legit, some not). Some of these front companies and businesses (well, maybe the employees) have no idea about these ties either because it happens to be a completely legitimate operation. The next time you stay in that nice looking and affordable business hotel, you never know if the company that is operating it is actually one of these.

Over the years, I've personally met some interesting eccentric characters that live in their own realities. One guy who lives in California did not believe in investing anything in the US stock market because of this sort of stuff. So all he did was put most of his cash into gold (gold nuggets, bullion coins, bars, etc) and buried them in secret locations on his estate and other areas (he didn't trust the banks either). This was during a time when an ounce cost under $300 US. Sure, he has almost quadrupled his initial investment when gold was trading near its highs but look at what the stock market has done. I myself bought some gold not including gold coinage that I had collected. But I also was not going to place all my eggs in one basket like this guy. My initial investment in AAPL for example has gone from $3.90 per share from the later half of the 1990's to just a tad under $200 at its highest levels in 2008 ($175 as of this writing). Achieving that sort of ROI is difficult most anywhere else. A college classmate invested something like $5000 in Microsoft in the 80's because that was all he could afford. He retired in his 30's a multimillionaire as a result of the way the share price increased through the early 90's in addition to the numerous stock splits that turned the small amount of shares he originally had into several thousand. I personally have my own gripes with the financial markets because there are manipulative activities that take place all the time. But this is why I took a long term buy and hold strategy, do my own research and NEVER listen to what Wall Street analysts have to say; especially the bozos on financial news networks like CNBC (which is the quickest way to lose money). I no longer daytrade and do not utilize instruments such as options which are geared to more often than not, take money from you since most expire worthless (and yes, I do know there are options that can be used for downside protection but this is already way OT). The way they make money is by getting people to trade often (commission fees) and to buy high and sell low (the exact opposite of what you are supposed to).  Irrational exuberance and fear is heavily used because they know that people can be spurred to action by preying on their emotion.  But I left my personal feelings about that aspect of the financial markets at the door because I wanted to take advantage of what I knew and use it in my favor.  However, I don't believe this manipulation has anything to do with the markets being controlled by a much higher level secret elite society. I personally have a hard time believing that something like that exists at least in the way that conspiracy theorists describe it because if it were true, (and as I've mentioned before) they would have used their power, wealth, and hidden technologies to accomplish what they wanted yesterday.

While Fulford came from a well to do background which would have helped him make the sort of difference that he seemingly wants to make, he has shunned it; the reality is he is just an ex-journalist from the financial world who dug deeper into the complex world of politics, "learned" about the rampant corruption (this part of his surprise at how Japan is in that regards set off another red flag since that shouldn't surprise anyone nor the level of incompetence that actually exists at the very top of not only government but also business), and is thus trying to become Japan's Finance Minister (which is why he is living in Japan as he wants to become a Japanese citizen in order to run for office) and use their $5 trillion USD in foreign reserves to end poverty and become the "savior of the world". Sounds like one hell of an interest yet extremely corny storyline for a suspense-thriller-comedy movie doesn't it? Some folks think he is an insane basketcase with more than a handful of loose screws. No, he is actually perfectly sane (and smart). It's just that parts of his story borders on the irrational and insane; something that sane people are very good at concocting but can get into deep trouble IF they start fully believing in the parts that have no bearing in reality. Again, Fulford either fully believes this or part of it is an elaborate scheme to further his own personal agendas.

But you know what, what if in some extremely twisted way regardless of his intent, Fulford by his own drive and desire (what ordinary person; a foreigner to boot, would stand outside yakuza headquarters and do a 30 minute speech?) is able to accomplish this dream for the betterment of all mankind? Again, this presumes that this all isn't for the purpose of selling more books. The cynic in me says no way but what the hell, life is too short to be a h8ter.  This is why I'm going to keep an open mind about his actual intent and see exactly what happens. Maybe Fulford is Okkusenman personified (including the way out there stories which would be equivalent to being Ultraman and fighting aliens) and one of those rare individuals who can actually go back to those innocent times. Or maybe he is like so many others of this type, elaborate smooth talking manipulative liars who could sell ice to an eskimo. Time will tell.
