The notorious Henry Kissinger and equally infamous international bank HSBC have reportedly partnered together to finalize the location of the new headquarters for Europe’s largest bank.
SkyNews reports that board members of HSBC have met with former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger to “discuss the geopolitical implications of the ongoing review of the bank’s domicile.” SkyNews writes:
Sources said that Mr Kissinger, who has a role with JP Morgan, the Wall Street giant, as well as his own consulting firm, had been asked to provide advice on a number of options being considered by HSBC directors.
Since April of 2015 HSBC has been considering moving its headquarters from London to several possible locations in the United States, Canada, and China. The international bank is attempting to escape taxes and regulations in the UK and is also still facing penalties from authorities for attempting to manipulate foreign exchange markets.
HSBC has not publicly commented on the SkyNews report but if the report is accurate, this partnership, whether it’s simply related to HSBC’s potential move, cannot be good for lovers of freedom and justice. Here’s a little background on why you should not support Henry Kissinger or HSBC.
Henry Kissinger: A Legacy of Destruction
I will start with Kissinger because most of this audience is probably painfully aware of the lies, war, and death this man has spread in his “illustrious” political career.
Henry Kissinger is one of the most controversial statesman the United States has ever had. Known by some as the greatest diplomat for his work opening up relations between the Soviet and Chinese governments, Mr. Kissinger is also called a war criminal by many others.
Kissinger has evaded questions and legal summons from investigators in France, Spain, Chile and Argentina who are seeking answers about his involvement in disappearances of citizens in the US and other countries in relation to Operation Condor. Operation Condor was a campaign of political repression and terror involving assassination and intelligence operations implemented in 1975 by the dictatorships of South America. The former Secretary of State was heavily involved in the operation.
On September 10, 2001, the family of General Schneider initiated a civil action in federal court in DC, claiming that Kissinger gave the agreement to murder the general because he had refused to endorse plans for a military coup in Chile.
November 13, 2002, 11 individuals brought suit against Kissinger for human rights violations following the coup. They accused him of forced disappearance, torture, arbitrary detention, and wrongful death. The suit claims that Kissinger provided practical assistance and encouragement to the Chilean regime with reckless disregard for the lives and well-being of the victims and their families.
Both cases were dismissed based on sovereign and diplomatic immunity.

HSBC: Money Laundering, Destruction of Indigenous Lands
The following details are taken from my 2013 article written for Activist Post. Read here for a deeper analysis.
In the summer of 2012 the British multinational bank HSBC was exposed for laundering money for drug cartels, Iran, and moving money for an al-Qaida linked Saudi bank. A report presented to the Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigation in July 2012 detailed HSBC subsidiaries transporting billions of dollars in armored vehicles, clearing suspicious checks, and assisting drug cartels in buying planes through Cayman Island accounts. At the hearing David Bagley, HSBC’s head of compliance, resigned in front of the committee stating that, “Despite the best efforts and intentions of many dedicated professionals, HSBC has fallen short of our own expectations and the expectations of our regulators.” In the wake of the investigation and 335-page report HSBC was fined $1.9 billion.
The Rainforest Action Network has detailed how an HSBC financed company is forcing the development of oil palms on the lands of indigenous communities in Papua New Guinea.
HSBC-financed palm oil company Kuala Lumpur Kepong (KLK) recently claimed ownership of three land development licenses within traditional indigenous lands. KLK brought in palm oil seedlings and is believed to have begun planting seeds without permission. KLK has been accused of using slave labor in Borneo and child plantations in Sumatra.
Without a doubt Henry Kissinger and the decision makers at HSBC are responsible for a number horrible atrocities around the world. This partnership in hell cannot signal anything positive for the free people of Earth. It’s time for the free hearts and minds of the world to confront Kissinger, HSBC executives, and all the people in positions of “authority” who are seeking to control our lives. Let them know we are here, they are not welcome, and freedom is coming.
