Poland’s National Bank President Slawomir Skrzypek Says no to IMF – Dies in plane crash 12 days later

By Barbara H. Peterson

Do the math. Poland’s national bank president Slawomir Skrzypek says no to International Monetary fund (IMF) credit because the economy is so good, and even offers to help other countries, then dies in a plane crash along with the President, his wife, and several other highly placed Polish leaders within days. And we are supposed to believe that this is simply coincidence. Yeah, right. And I’ve got two noses, three eyes, and my name is stupid.

Polish Central Bank Sees No Need to Extend IMF Credit Line

March 29 (Bloomberg) — Poland’s economy is in “good enough shape” that the country doesn’t need to extend its Flexible Credit Line from the International Monetary Fund, the central bank said in an e-mailed statement today.

The only EU country to avoid a recession last year, Poland may see its economy expand 3 percent this year after a 1.7 percent expansion in 2009, the government has said. The central bank increased its projection for 2010 economic growth in February to a range of 2.1 percent to 4.1 percent, compared with its previous forecast of 0.8 percent to 2.8 percent.

“The Narodowy Bank Polski’s management is convinced that the situation of the Polish economy and the financial system are currently good enough that the country, instead of being among those using the IMF support, may join a group helping other countries through the IMF,” the bank said in the statement.

A nation in mourning: Poland’s president and wife among at least 88 dead as their plane crashes in Russia

Polish president Lech Kaczynski and his wife Maria have been killed after their plane crashed on approach to Smolensk airport in western Russia.

There were conflicting reports today of the number of people on board the flight. Russian news agencies reported at least 88 people died in the crash near Smolensk airport in western Russia, citing the Russian Emergencies Ministry. They reported 132 people were aboard the Tupolev Tu-154.

But Polish officials said 88 people were on board when the plane crashed. Sky News reported 96 dead….National Bank President Slawomir Skrzypek, and the Army chief of staff, Gen. Franciszek Gagor both died on board the plane.

Shock Doctrine:

The World Bank and the International Monetary Fund

During the 1980s another mechanism was used to force Chicago-style economic policies on other countries, particularly in South and Central America, that were in economic crisis: debt relief. The highly industrialized countries of the North offered debt relief through the World Bank or IMF in exchange for the imposition of free-market policies.

Poland did not need the International Monetary Fund money, and the economy is in excellent shape and getting better. A few days later, the people responsible for this die in a plane crash. No need for debt relief, not a good candidate for the shock doctrine, and an example to other nations of how to avoid this catastrophe. It will be interesting to see the course of events as this unfolds.

  1. The funny thing is, many Poles suspect the Russians of having something to do with the plane crash, since they have a suspicion of the Russians going back to World War 1. And, of course, in the Arab world they’re blaming the Israelis.
    Perhaps folks should wait until there’s some evidence before jumping to conclusions, especially since this Tupalov plane has been known as a “flying coffin” for decades.
    The pilot apparently tried to land in heavy fog 3 times, despite being told not to. Perhaps it was a Muslim militant committing Jihad, trying to get into heaven.
    It appears some folks had their minds made up the moment the plane hit the ground.

    • Well, I suppose one way to find out is to wait and see if the new Polish political successors recant their previous central bank policies and take up the IMF’s loan “offer”.

  2. If the new Polish govt. takes up the IMF loan offer, all it means is they think it’s the wisest move for the Polish economy, which is better off than most E.European countries, but still pretty shaky. This is a judgement call, and economies are notoriously difficult to predict. The fact that a new Polish govt. would decide to go for the loan tells us nothing about the plane crash…unless, of course, someone is convinced of conspiracies behind all world events, there are no coincidences, no accidents, etc.

    • That’s a Straw Man argument.

      Most of us “conspiratorialists” do not subscribe to the notion that every dark event or mishap necessitates a conspiracy. However, taking into account imperfect humanity’s propensity to corruption and abuse of power, I argue that it is indeed rational to be suspicious of those who wield tremendous political and financial power since they have both the opportunity and ability to cloak their criminal activity within the “legitimacy” of the State, which they -the political and financial elite- have largely controlled throughout most of history either in the form of oligarchies or plutocracies.

      Moreover, the same thing can be said of the “accidentalists” who say conspiracies never occur, and that political intrigue must be dismissed a priori of any investigation. In this case, it’s just as premature to jump to the conclusion that the crash isn’t the result of foul play any more than to say that it is, and since it is highly unlikely for those in power to disclose any damning evidence under its control, I doubt that any independent investigator will have free access to the crash site evidence and will be able to conclusively prove that a conspiracy occurred. This doesn’t mean that conspiracies are, by nature, impossible to prove, for evidence of alleged conspiratorial events in history have surfaced over the years to prove the authenticity of various conspiracies. No one argues against the reality of lower level street criminals or organized crime syndicates engaging in criminal conspiracies, for they are charged and convicted of criminal conspiracies every day. So, are we to believe that higher level government conspiracies are somehow impossible? How is that logical? It isn’t.

      If one considers the last century’s track record of central governments and the political and financial elite who control them, conspiratorial activity is demonstrated not to be unique, but rather its modus operandi. Sociologist Pitirim Sorokin has also documented the corrosive nature of government leaders by showing that the ruling caste of most states are by far the most criminal element in a given society. Furthermore, Dr R.J. Rummel of the University of Hawaii has documented in his indispensable work ‘Death By Government’ that central government rulers of the last century have murdered their own citizens by the millions, a figure as high as 360 million. It is simply not rational to conclude that nefarious secretive agendas, i.e. conspiracies, are beyond the domain of the Power Elite or any powerful political or financial cabal. History has provided various examples of this: The 1964 false flag Tonkin Gulf incident, Lincoln P. Bloomfield’s 1961 U.S. State Department funded policy paper ‘Memorandum no.7: A World Effectively Controlled By The United Nations’, 1954 Ford Foundation’s H. Rowan Gaither’s Reece Committee admission of conspiracy to merge U.S. and U.S.S.R. into future world government, Harvard and Georgetown historian Dr. Carroll Quigley’s 1966 admission of Power Elite’s conspiratorial activities, et al.

      I am agnostic concerning this event, but having taken into consideration the universal corruptive nature of humanity and the ruling class elites’ penchant for furtive criminal activity, I find myself more than a little suspicious of these convenient deaths. A sudden change in Poland’s banking policies regarding the IMF may in fact tell us something about the plane crash, for the action is in the reaction. Any investigative journalist worth his or her salt would and should be highly suspicious of Poland’s sudden change of policies -if this were to occur. Conspiracies are not only possible, they frequently occur, history has validated this time and time again.

  3. And the IMF are good guys, bankers are our heroes, and everything is fine in the world, eh, Stan? Schools teach all about history, and there is no man behind the curtain pulling the strings in the Wizard of Oz fantasy that we live.

    If you don’t need credit, why on earth should you get it? Ever gotten behind on a credit card? Ever seen the interest and penalties keep compounding until a $1000 original debt turns into a $4000 debt?

    Study history, Stan. Without a basic knowledge of how things work and what has happened in the past, you are doomed to be a cog in the wheel of the international bankers to be crushed at will while you sit in your easy chair watching football and drinking your way into oblivion clicking your remote control while the world crumbles around you.

  4. Hi,

    I am from Poland and there is something fishy about it. They talk on TV about their investigation but nothing comes out. I think that NWO may have something to do with it rather than Russia. On the other hand this was the most stupid thing I have heard to put all the elite of the country on the same plane. Perhaps someone could convince all the officials to get on one plane to get them killed, but who… If this was the case than there must be a NWO representative in Poland, hm mm, maybe not…Since the economy was so good I do believe they could afford to get another plane or take trains and buses. Our government do allow for aerosol chemtrails spraying so they either do not have a choice or they in on it. Perhaps in time we will find out what happened but I highly doubt it. It will be like with 911, by now everyone knows it was an inside job and…they only talk about catching Osama for 10 years??? right…
