Yeah the video is over a year old but still holds true. Here's the same video uploaded April 2010

I was concerned massively over the HOP speech by Lord James

However, I was pointed to this article, which essentially explained it was a hoax (the information he had, not the speech - he genuinely thought it was true).

Im on the fence.

Link to artice

There’s a reason the bells might not have gone off in Parliament. The right honourable gentleman, as British peers are fond of calling one another, could have figured out why by spending 10 seconds with the Earl of Google.

The first search result for ”Yohannes Riyadi” is, curiously enough, a Web page from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York titled “Scams Involving the Federal Reserve Name.”

“The Federal Reserve is aware of a fraudulent scam,” the page reads, “involving individuals using the names Yohannes Riyadi and/or Wilfredo Saurin, or persons claiming to be representatives of these two men.”

“In a typical version of this scam, Mr. Riyadi and/or his delegates falsely claim that they have on deposit with the Federal Reserve Bank of New York several U.S. Treasury Checks issued to Mr. Riyadi amounting to billions of dollars. … The fraudulent scheme includes multiple documents which purport to have the signatures of various Federal Reserve officials, including Chairman Ben Bernanke.”

So it emerges that the name “Yohannes Riyadi” is synonymous with the names of various apocryphal Nigerian princes whose spam emails promise riches in exchange for help moving their inheritances to American banks.

It’s a good thing — for the British, at least — that Lord James apparently doesn’t have a computer.

A few big questions here.. Don't want to be paranoid here but,

1. Why would MSNBC report on a story like this, nonetheless for a good five minutes?
(Obviously the news corporations know things like this and have refused to report them until now)
2. NBC.. Rockefeller.. Big banking?
3. Who really is anonymous? These media sources continue to shape our own opinions as we continue to believe we are the enlightened ones.

We Interrupt Your Regularly Scheduled Lives For A Life Changing Newsflash!

All your life you have waited for the good news, and that day has finally come. Very soon you will witness large-scale mass arrests all over the world of many men and women who you have come to know as our world's political and financial leaders. These arrests will reach high into the U.S. Government and include many members of the financial and banking worlds. Many of these names you will immediately recognize, though some you may not immediately recognize, but all have actively taken part in serious crimes against the people, leaving our nations bankrupt why they looted our hard earned money.

These arrests are groundbreaking, and these arrests are Earth changing. Humanity will finally be free from the tyrannical control of these powerbrokers commonly known as the Cabal. These arrests should come as no surprise to many of us as we all know deep down that there is something very wrong with this world, a place where so many go to bed hungry at night while a few others possess not millions or billions, but trillions of dollars, pilfered from the labors of the people. There has always been enough wealth on this planet to go around, yet these few men and women have been dividing up for themselves virtually all of the wealth of our world, leaving only crumbs for the rest of us to compete over. Upon these arrests, this will now change.

Many new projects will immediately be implemented under the new leadership of men and women of the highest integrity who are committed to restoring our world to the utopia it once was, governed by a constitutional and true democratic process. There are many men and women dedicated to this cause throughout the US Government, agencies at the Pentagon, militaries, the financial sector, as well as the private business sector who have committed so much of their lives to this effort, and they are so eager to present to humanity our new system of abundance that they have been working so diligently on in secret for years. As part of these proceedings, vast sums of wealth that have been stolen from the people will be redistributed through programs that will benefit greatly every man, woman and child on the planet. No one will be overlooked, and no one will be forgotten.

And there is more.

Upon the arrests of these many members of the criminal Cabal, the second phase of this operation will commence. Today our world is being visited by many spiritually enlightened beings who wish to openly reunite with their ancient family. These spiritually advanced men and women are assisting in the disarmament of the criminal Cabal which has controlled much of the world's military and possessed highly advanced weapons systems.

These advanced ancestors of the human race appear just as we do, although there are other beings that we shall meet as well that do not look like we do. All are ascended spiritual beings who are only here to assist us make the changes we all know deep down inside need to be made. These beings are the original planners of this world, and are the same advanced civilizations that built many of the great archaeological mysteries such as the pyramids in Egypt. They are not strangers to us at all, as we are their ancestors, all of us.

A very important social experiment has been conducted here over many years and each of us has been a part of it. We have been left here, seemingly all alone, to work things out for ourselves. This experiment is now over and it has been a tremendous success. We are now about to reunite with our brothers and sisters from the stars and be welcomed into the greater Galactic Community.

As they are many worlds that go by many names, it is easier to refer to them at this time by the name of their peaceful alliances: The Galactic Federation of Light, and the Ashtar Command.

Upon these arrests and our reunion with our Star Family, all the problems of our world will be quickly and smoothly brought into the alignment of our new Golden Age society through the leadership of souls of pure hearted intent. Through a worldwide community effort, all wars, hunger, poverty, illness, and pollution will soon be a thing of the past, as will our lives of daily servitude. Advanced technologies will replace our need to labor our lives away, and everyone will be free to pursue every creative dream they have ever had.

All this will begin with the imminent arrests of the many members of the criminal Cabal, and these arrests will take place as soon as a suitable number of our planet’s citizens are aware of what these proceedings will mean for our society. This is why you are reading these words today, as many members of your human family are doing all they can to share this news with you and do their part to usher in our civilizations new Golden age of peace, freedom, and prosperity for every man, woman and child throughout our world. Celebrations the world over are certainly appropriate and are encouraged by the Galactic Federation of Light, as it is important that humanity sees these arrests as good news and not more of the bad that we have become so accustomed.

Please participate in this great cause by sharing this message on Facebook and other online social networks. This is your chance to really make a difference and be a leader of your fellow man. If we all do our part to spread this news, we will all begin to witness these high profile arrests all around the world, and this will be your sign that everything you just read is true.

Sorry, but it was no hoax if you read through, all of the links and posts cited, well actually read the transcript of watch what Lord James of Blackheath said...he exposed that Yohannes Riyadi was trying to commit fraud and hamper the investigation, they were making to get money, the Lord Of Blackheath ruled him out in the speech. The actual report is no hoax. Who would pay attention to one post of dismissal? Do some research or read all we have provided as research...Not read one post calling the whole thing a hoax because the lack reading or visual comprehension...and come here with that nonsense, without reading or watching anything yourself where we are trying to pull out hard facts.

I know the information is a lot to digest but it is in your best interest to do so...not hunt for something to satiate your worry and concern. That's how these people keep getting away with such things!!!

Hey ATS, this is my first post here. I have been reading this site for a few months. I don't know if this has been brought up in another thread or not but lately it seems that the messages posted by the group "Anonymous" sound very similar to the galactic federation of light pieces. Am I the only one who noticed this? I would like to say that I do not have an opinion about the GFL.. Please share your thoughts, do the messages seem similar to you or is it just me?

You need a system where the people elect people that represent the people interest in your country. Also elect people that represent the interest of the fed. And have elected people by the people serve as a jury. No Partys.

Why do so many people believe that when this system falls apart as it is about to, how can this mean anything good for us? I believe that when this all falls to pieces will mean two things basically! One we will have to fend for ourselves; Noone to protect us, nowhere to purchase goods, no heat in the winter, no Air in the summer and no government at all! Two these bankers will have the full protection of their leadership lackeys: they will have food supplied by vast reserves which have been accumulated to feed these elitist scum, they will have underground shelters with their own power, air, heat and whatever creature comforts these bastards need to keep them happy.
I am positive that these steps have all been taken over the past several decades! We have to understand that there has been plans in the works since the oil shocks of the early seventies! Plans to reduce the populations through pollution, GMOs, poisons and this still has not been enough to keep down our numbers! So their last part of this plan is to get the funds to create shelters and supply them with monies stolen from the working man.
Which has been done and now all that is left is to leave their high ranking positions enter their shelters and allow the final shock to destroy whomever is left on the surface! With these elitist leaving their positions we can see all that is left! I don't believe there is anything left that can change this short of a miracle from God almighty himself.
We are in the final months of civilization so i must say god bless! If you are prepared for this in whatever way you deemed fit then goodluck to you and God help you but if you live in the city like me and have nowhere to go then live each day as it could be your last! I am more afraid right now then at any other time in my life cause I see the clearity in this! I know that noone lives forever but I was hoping to somehow die with some meaning to my life and not the result of a man made holocaust the result of a certain group of individuals! May God have mercy on us all!

Perhaps a simple equation, if followed could iron-out most of the problems in politics today. That being, (money+politics=screwed/ordinary people, squared. If politics and money were separated, we more than likely would not be seeing bankers and politicians bailing hand in hand at this time!

things are looking good for us and very bad for the criminal bankers.

It's time for bankers to be concerned, very concerned.

I couldn't disagree more. These bankers are resigning for a reason, which is to avoid prosecution while quietly accepting lucrative severance and/or retirement packages. You can bet they are all putting their assets under the names of family members, most likely in overseas accounts, as we speak. These people did not get where they are by being stupid.

I don't believe for a minute that anyone other than one or two patsies will ever be charged with anything. The governments of the world are in on this scam just as much as the bankers, and their involvement consists of politicians getting bribes in the form of campaign contributions and questionable "financial advice", in exchange for "bailouts" of unfathomable proportions. This is the last thing they want exposed in the MSM and we all know who controls them.
