Yesterday, Independent.ie ran an ‘exclusive’ by Tom Lyons which revealed that Kevin Cardiff, former secretary general of the Department of Finance (the man who “lost” 3.6 billion euro and was rewarded with a promotion to Brussels), had a secret meeting with the former head of treasury of Anglo Irish Bank, Tiernan O’Mahony, who lobbied Cardiff for a State guarantee for Irish banks.
This peculiar meeting took place four days before Cowen and Lenihan officially met the frantic banksters on September 30th, 2008, and sanctioned the now infamous blanket guarantee.
Cardiff never revealed this meeting or any of its details to the chairman of the Public Accounts Committee who quizzed him about the guarantee in July, 2010.
Something smells in all of this. Writer Tom Lyons is suggesting a certain degree of complicity between a top civil servant and a former banker. And he appears to be correct.
But does the collusion go much higher? This writer thinks so and wrote a post to Independent.ie pointing to a potential and more serious conspiracy involving the Attorney General and a chief executive of an Irish bank.
At this time of writing (1.30pm Monday) Independent.ie has not posted my comment (sent Sunday afternoon). They also refused to answer a second post asking if the first post had been refused.
Of course, we all know it’s the job of the media in their role as the Fourth Estate to dig out evidence of illegality and chicanery and to inform the public of malfeasance in high places. But the mainstream media seems to have shifted its position and is now inclined to protect or hide wrongdoing by the rich and powerful.

Ex-Anglo man ‘briefed Cardiff on banks crisis’
Secret meeting took place days before guarantee
By Tom Lyons EXCLUSIVE
Sunday January 29 2012
Kevin Cardiff, the civil servant in charge of banking in September 2008 had a late-night briefing on how to solve the financial crisis from Tiernan O’Mahony, the former head of treasury at Anglo Irish Bank — just days before the State introduced a blanket guarantee for Ireland’s banks.
The meeting, which has never been disclosed before, took place between Mr Cardiff and Mr O’Mahony inside the Department of Finance after 8.30pm on September 25, just four days before the decision was made to blanket guarantee €440bn in liabilities associated with Ireland’s reckless banks.

My comment to Independent.ie…..
It is only now starting to register with the Irish people, and all peoples across the globe, that national governments are, and long have been, subtly controlled and run by the all powerful International Banking Cartel. Sometimes this control is not so disguised at all but is blatantly overt. Look at Greece and Italy. The prime ministers of both these countries, Lucas Papademos and Mario Monti, are not elected politicians but dyed-in-the-wool banksters appointed by their bosses in the EU/ECB/IMF.
We have been warned about a devious power and property grab by the banksters for over 200 hundred years, going back to Thomas Jefferson at the turn of the 19th century. Jefferson said, “I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.”
Other key politicians have repeated Jefferson’s warning: U.S. Presidents Madison, Jackson, Lincoln, Garfield, Wilson, Eisenhower, and Kennedy; British PMs Disraeli and Gladstone; and other notables such as Napolean and Bismark and many others.
In Ireland we have seen first-hand evidence of the all pervading power of the banksters with the notorious bank guarantees and bailouts originating in the wee hours of that September morning in 2008.
The above article points to possible collusion between Cardiff and O’Mahony four days before the infamous guarantee decision, a decision made all the more suspicious by Cardiff’s attempt to hide details of the meeting.
But was there a much higher and more sinister level of collusion that is equally unreported in the mainstream media?
One of the government representatives at the September 30th, 2008, meeting with the banksters was Paul Gallagher, the Attorney General. Among the bankster representatives was the chairman of Allied Irish Bank, Dermot Gleeson, himself a former Attorney General. But there was a more unholy bond between these men. Both were members of the scheming and extremely secretive Bilderberg Group.
For those who are unfamiliar with the Bilderbergs, they are a brotherhood of unelected international banksters, corporatists, politicians, and others, which was founded in 1954 by Prince Bernhard of Holland, a member of Hitler’s SS. The Bilderbergers meet secretly every year to formulate and manipulate world policy in finance, economics, trade, and any other area that they can control for their own selfish, globalist interests.
Did Gallagher and Gleeson cook up a secret brotherly agreement that would vastly favour the banksters to the utter detriment of Irish people?
Hint… look at the financial standing of the banksters and their government pals compared to that of the great majority of the Irish people.
