Malachi Martin’s “Keys of Blood”

By Charles Pinwil

    Malachi Martin’s tome of 700 pages, “The Keys of This Blood”, brings revelations into the West which both stun and explain. The work centres around the geopolitical thinking and strategy of Pope John Paul II (Karol Wojtyla), which we will address later. 

    If this were an attempt at a full review it would deal with many matters of intense interest. One of which would be the 9 day visit of John Paul 2 to Poland in 1979, which totally humiliated the Communist regime, far and away beyond any recovery of pretence that it was loved, respected or was the government.. Another would be the development of Polish democracy, centuries before Britain’s, with such things as a bi-cameral parliament and an independent judiciary. Will not the same philosophy produce the same policy? Social Creditors will maintain that this is so.

    Perhaps the most “out of left field” historical fact revealed, is that even though Poland had been overrun by the Swedes, Germans, Russians, Austrians, Nazis and Communists since about 1795, it always retained a perfectly organised, readily recognised Government, acknowledged by no less than 90% of Poles at any time. This seemingly impossible thing, (never accomplished by any other people), was the “Interrex”.

   Through an historical accident, (read the book if you want an explanation), Poland, though it may be overrun by anyone at anytime, always had a workable government, that is, an Interrex, I suppose best understood as an “Interim King”. Due to the elective nature of their Monarchy, Poland always had an awkward period in which, between the death of one monarch, and the eventual election of another, there was no Head of State. OK, so if and while there was no legitimate, democratically elected, organically recognised government in place, all Poles knew to whom they owed allegiance ….. the Interrex.  So who was he?

    He was the Primate of Poland! So, if the people of Poland, had no democratically elected legitimate government, they had a most legitimate “reserve” government. The head of the Church was the head of Polish Government until and unless the Polish people had demonstratively pronounced, democratically, otherwise.

    When the Soviet overran Poland in 1945, there was no possibility of any legitimacy, because without any community endorsement, the Interrex was their Government. So unlike any other conquered people on earth, they were not conquered at all. The Primate of their Church was their King until events enabled it to be otherwise. Nobody can form a Government of Poland without the consent of Poles, because one is permanently in place.

Of course, there is much more, including a whole Chapter on Antonio Gramsci, the Marxist contemporary of Lenin who tried to convince him that the real job for Marxism was in the permeation of Western culture, encouraging it towards materialism and away from religious patterns of thought, after which Marxism would readily prevail. He believed that Lenin’s view, that right around the world the oppressed workers were simply awaiting the opportunity and conditions needful to fling off their oppressors, was fantasising. A revolution was needful inside Westerners heads before it could come on the streets.


The book is subtitled “The Struggle for World Dominion Between Pope John Paul II, Mikhail Gorbachev, and the Capitalist West.” The quotes below are from the books first page of text (page 15), in order of their appearance, the first being the very opening sentences:-

   “Willing or not, ready or not, we are all involved in an all-out, no-holds-barred, three-way global competition. Most of us are not competitors, however. We are the stakes. For the competition is about who will establish the first one-world system of government that has ever existed in the society of nations.”

   “The competition is all-out because, now that it has started, there is no way that it can be reversed or called off.”

    “The competition began and continues as a three-way affair because that is the number of rivals with sufficient resources to establish and maintain a new world order.”

   “Nobody who is acquainted with the plans of these three rivals has any doubt but that only one of them can win. Each expects the other two to be overwhelmed and swallowed up in the coming maelstrom of change.”

The above geopolitical assessment would appear to have originated with Poland’s Interrex, Cardinal Wyszynski. The following quote is from pages 20 & 21:-

   “By the time he (Karol Wojtyla) was elected Pope, he had worked for nearly thirty years beside the tough and canny Cardinal Stefan Wyszynski, a man who earned his stripes as the “Fox of Europe” by planning and executing the only geopolitical strategy – the only successful strategy – ever carried out by an Eastern satellite nation against the Soviet Union.

  All during those years, the two Churchmen – the Cardinal and the future Pope – already thought and worked in terms of what Wyszynski called the “three internationales.” That was the classical term he used to talk about geopolitical contenders for true world power.

   There exist on this earth, Wyszynski used to say, only three internationales. The “Golden Internationale” was his shorthand term for the financial powers of the world – the Transnationalist and Internationalist globalist leaders of the West.

   The “Red Internationale” was, of course, the Leninist-Marxist Party-State of the Soviet Union.

   The third geopolitical contender – the Roman Catholic Church; the “Black Internationale” – was destined in Wyszynski’s view to be the ultimate victor in any contention with these rivals.

   Surely such a view seemed outlandish to much of the world - ….Nonetheless, it was a view that Karol Wojtyla not only shared. It was one that he had helped to prove against the Soviets and that he now carried into the papacy itself.

If we are to take the above seriously, the implications for the world 23 years after its first publication are enormous. Like the green bottles “a’hanging on the wall”, now there are two. And as the first quote given said “….only one of them can win.” Also, “…there is no way that it can be reversed or called off.”

Some more quotes before we plunge into what it all means for social credit.

From page 33:- 

   “On the face of it the champions of (the Golden Internationale) – appear to be far and away the most effective and powerful architects of a new world order, for the simple reason that their power base rests on the indispensable pillars of money and technology.

   “Their plan is to broaden the scope of what they do so well; to exploit democratic capitalism and democratic egalitarianism to the full. The new world order, they say, will develop organically from the fundamental idea of a nation-state democracy into a geopolitical system of world regulation.

   The father of this version of the new world order is to be the interdependence of nations. Its mother is to be that peculiarly modern process called international development. It is to be midwifed by the entrepreneur, the banker, the technocrat, the scientist and, ultimately, the lawyer. It is to be born between the printed sheets of compacts and agreements; joint ventures and mergers; contracts and covenants and international treaties signed and countersigned by the political bureaucrat, and sealed with the stamp of united nations.”

So the money power and the Church are now facing each other off until the defeat of one, and the victory of the other which will hold the hegemony of the world, perhaps forever. The strengths and weaknesses of the two contenders are apparent enough.

One of the Church’s great strengths is that it was established as a monarchy. It is, while this holds, and it has unity, therefore able to act in unison. It can pursue a policy or strategy on a global scale, if need be. Its unity has taken some hits however. Vatican 2 disaffected many traditional Catholics, and on the other hand, Marxists of the Gramsci approach were able to misrepresent it as supportive of “liberation theology”. Precipitate action to address these matters risks entrenching them further, apparently, so drift and gradualism appear to be the order of approach.

Of course, the spiritual dimension is the decisive one here. If men drift into comfortable materialism and consumerism, progressively less orientated towards God, and accepting of such as abortion, permissive sexual relations, euthanasia etc. becoming besotted with “the good life”, they won’t, of course, be listening to the Church.

Of course, if the Christian God is there, then the Golden Internationale is only there by temporary consent.

The structure of the money power is quite different. Its whole power base rests upon its ability to create money. Theirs is a situation approximating counterfeiters who have been licensed by the State to create its money for it. Naturally, all that money can buy is available to them, and with this power, Governments will not gainsay the Golden Internationale. There is no entry in National Budgets for “additional money created this year”. The Banks create our money (over 98% of it) and it becomes their trading asset.

They understand interdependence very well, because they do not have a “head” which is recognisable, even to themselves. The money (call it credit if you wish) which they create can scarcely have value if other banking houses won’t accept it. So the situation is this; “I will only accept the money you create, if you will accept the money I create!”

The arrangements and transfers between the banking institutions of every country in the world constitute the nervous system of the Golden Internationale. It now operates, thanks to modern communications, in real time, and controls the economic blood supply of the world, so to speak, which is money.

There has been a development of thought over the last century, and especially since the Great Depression, which is demystifying the creation of credit. It is now not disputed in serious quarters that all money is distributed to us as a debt to banks, and that if we sought to repay it under present rules, it would take all the money in the world to do so.

So where is the vulnerability of the Golden Internationale? We were once told that the truth would set us free, and to those of us who accept this, it is mostly a matter of identifying which truth or truths will do it.

Sometimes the key to a situation can be best seen not in what is done, but in what is not done. Every large corporation on earth produces a Balance Sheet (and most small ones too). Understanding an entity’s position is impossible without one, even if it is kept in the head for very small enterprises. The Directors of all large Public Companies in every country known to me, would go straight to jail for neglect or fraud if one were not produced at least annually.

And the more it is thought about, the more it becomes “curiouser and curiouser”, that no Nation ever produces one. Why ever not? Governments interminably talk of “managing their economies”. They don’t know the first thing about their economies without balance sheets, but they don’t move to produce them. Why is the Golden Internationale in such terror of National Balance Sheets? Surely it would be reasonable to know what our assets are? Even an approximate sketch of our assets would be useful, and could be refined later.

Irrespective of whether the assets in a Nation were owned privately, corporately or publicly we could list the following already known data:-

   Residences (total number x the average sale price),

   Arable land (area and valuation),

   Industrial and manufacturing assets,

   Health related facilities,

   Communication and transport infrastructure, 

   The Education and training invested in the Nation’s people,

   Cultural facilities and skills, and of course there are many other types and forms of assets, but a good set of accountants with access to the National Statistics Bureaus would give a reasonable ball park figure in a fortnight.

But here we come to the rub. What would we put on the Liabilities side? Those things which make claims upon our Assets!  By far the greatest item here is money.

page 4

Of course any other Balance Sheet you’ll ever see will list money as an asset, which of course it is if it represents your claim upon others. But the national money supply represents claims against us all.

When we allow the private creation of money, the people get the Liability and the Banks get the Asset. Politicians (if they care), will be deeply shocked to know that they have been going into debt (with deficits) in order to acquire liabilities for us.

The process of demesmerisation may begin as simply as a National Balance Sheet produced by volunteer professionals as a public service. Of course there would be magazines which would take an interest, and each year when the figures were reworked, it would again be news. Market indicators are bandied about in the financial press by the dozen, and here is another.

The question is, did the one time Cardinals of Poland, those giants, Wyszynski and Wojtyla, who fought the Soviet Union to a standstill get it right, or did they get it right? Does the future of the world depend upon subjecting our financial system to serving the objects of the production and distribution of human needs, or the subjection of the world to accounting figures whose prime object is the maintenance of a mechanism to control the world? This is a fearful question, but I think it best to answer it.
