Benjamin Fulford (born 1961) is a journalist of Canadian descent living in Japan.
He worked in Japan as a correspondent for Knight Ridder, the International Financing Review, the Nihon Keizai Shimbun English edition, and the South China Morning Post before moving to Forbes magazine, where he was the Asian Bureau chief from 1998 to 2005. His investigative reports pursued scandals in the Japanese government and business world. After leaving Forbes he wrote a series of books in Japanese some of which became best sellers, and began publishing on the internet. He naturalized to Japanese citizenship in 2007.
On July 14, 2009 the Tokyo District Court awarded American broadcast journalist Steven L. Herman more than Yen 1,700,000 (115K euro) in the civil libel case brought against Fulford and his publisher (Herman vs. Fulford, Fusosha & M. Katagiri).

An international investigation of what is certain to be the largest financial fraud in history (involving at least $1 trillion) is now implicating former US Federal Reserve Board Chairman Alan Greenspan and UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon, according to CIA, MI6, Opus Dei and Interpol sources.

Strictly speaking, people aren't complaining just because it's on a blog, but because the claims made within this particular blog are backed up by nothing but the authors word. He provides no sources or any hint as to how he came across this information.
The reality is, when someone presents a story as crazy or significant as this one, as fact, they better have other sources or at least some kind of credible evidence to back it up -- otherwise they shouldn't bother presenting it.
Unfortunately it seems people here aren't quite interested in learning the actual truth as they are believing what they feel is the truth.

dbl post so edit add:
I dislike when people discredit blogs. You should look into the author of the blog before discrediting. If forner president or soldier, or congressmen had blogs, would you discdedit blog before actually reading or investigating?
