1001 Club

Membership list

 

Whether you look in Dutch, French, German, English, American, or South-African newspapers, there is almost no information available about the 1001 Club, or, as it is often referred to, the '1001 Nature Trust' and '1001: A Nature's Trust'. Even in the Netherlands, where Bernhard's involvement with Bilderberg should be widely known by now, absolutely no one has heard of his role in creating the 1001. The only official information available about this club is that it was established in the early seventies by individuals like Prince Bernhard, Prince Philip, Charles de Haes, and Anton Rupert and that every member paid a one time fee of $10,000 to get lifetime membership. That's about it.


The strangest club in the world? - Agha Abedi, Salem Bin Laden, Gyanendra Dev with Prince Philip, Sadruddin Khan, Mortimer Bloomfield, and Prince Johannes von Thurn und Taxis.

In 1948, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources (IUCN) was erected, mainly by Sir Julian Huxley, a famous biologist. Later, on September 11, 1961, Julian Huxley officially established the WWF, together with people like Prince Bernhard and Prince Philip. Ten years later, around 1971, WWF officials Anton Rupert, Prince Philip, and Prince Bernhard came together and decided to form a club that would generate an independent source of income for the WWF. Anton Rupert is said to have been the one who came up with the idea. Bernhard became the 'figurehead', just as Joseph Retinger's secretary described his role in the creation of Bilderberg. Bernhard was well liked, knew many people on both sides of the Atlantic, and as a prince, he was considered neutral. Anton Rupert appointed the Belgian economist Charles de Haes as Bernhard's personal assistant. These two approached most of the individuals that would be invited to the 1001 Club. In 1974, all the members were recruited, each of them having paid the one-time contribution of $10,000. From this point on, we have very little information about how the club organizes its meetings and how much each of the members keep contributing. In 1980, Private Eye magazine wrote (1):

"The puzzling question is what do the '1001' get for their money apart from private prestige and the privilege of dining with Prince Bernhard or the Duke of Edinburgh?"

This is the only reference I (initially) found that talks about this club actually arranging meetings. The mentioning of diners seems to indicate the 1001 Club is organized in the same way as the Pilgrims Society, which arranges diners two or three times a year with several hundred members attending at a time. With every diner you have several guest speakers that are invited. Of course, if the 1001 Club has been set up in the same way is only our best guess. One thing we do know is that new members were still invited in 1996. On the website of Buttonboss Plc. we can read in their history section:

"Buttonboss celebrated its 20th Jubileum and, once again, Prince Bernhard honoured us with his presence in attending the spectacular celebration party in Twente (Holland). It was on this occasion that he, in name of fellow members of the selection committee, offered Henk Brusse membership of the "1001-Club", for which he was responsible in founding. This club compromises 1001 good friends and relations of H.R.H. Prince Bernhard, all of whom support the world-wide activities associated with the World Wild Life Nature Fund."

It took some time and a lot of emailing, but on August 10, 2005 the Dutch branch of the WWF finally confirmed that meetings are still going on to this day (translation):

"I received your question about the 1001-Club. Regular meetings indeed do take place. The location is different every time. For instance, last April there has been a Panda Ball in Monaco and a diner in Barcelona.

... Could you please inform me why you are interested in this information?"

In my email I asked if the meetings were held in London. The WWF employee said it is very likely that meetings have been organized there too. Besides the fact that this time I actually received an answer that was helpful, what is very interesting is that the information was given to the WWF headquarters in Switzerland, because a short time after I replied to her email (to thank her and to explain my 'casual' interest), WWF Switzerland became very interested in my website. I never said I had a site so it's obvious someone within the WWF either looked up my name on the internet or did a search on the 'Pilgrims Society' which I mentioned in my email. As far as I can see, my site only received visitations from the WWF's headquarters and not from the Dutch branch I sent my email to.


It seems the WWF isn't used to questions about the 1001 Club. It took WWF UK five
weeks to reply and WWF Belgium three weeks. According to the Dutch Branch of the WWF
questions should normally be answered in two days. When WWF Holland finally replied,
the Swiss HQ immediately visited my site, without me ever having contacted them or
having mentioned I had a site.

3 days after I uploaded the initial 1001 Club article and 5 weeks after I sent them an email WWF UK finally decided to reply. They confirmed the 1001 Club is still organizing meetings and added to it that the one-time introduction fee has been increased to $25,000.

"I have been in discussions with our major support section in order to find all the information that you require about the 1001 club. There is a one off membership fee of $25,000 (US Dollars) and there are field trips and events organised mainly by WWF International. If you have further queries please come back to us..."

This short message took them 5 weeks! And why did this person have to go in "discussions" to receive "all this information"? Needles to say I did get back to them and asked if the regular staff actually knows about the 1001 Club or if all this information is held behind closed doors within the WWF headquarters. On September 5, 2005, I received the answer. If we skip the usual apology for the delay, the whole email reads:

"I would like to inform you that the 1001 Club is a scheme run by WWF-International, which is situated in Switzerland, and for detailed information we have to contact WWF-International."

As expected, the answer doesn't tell us a whole lot. Anyway, if you have a thousand members with an average age of 45-50 years or so, you'd expect that at least an average of about 20 people die each year. 20 new members who each pay the $25,000 introduction fee is a baseline income for the 1001 Club of at least $500,000 annually.

An obvious difference between the Anglo-American Pilgrims Society is that members of the 1001 Club are recruited from all over the world. You have Edgar Bronfman and Maurice Strong from Canada, Henry Ford and Robert McNamara from the United States, Antenor Patino and Gustavo Cisneros from Latin America, Sir Peter Cadbury and Lord Buxton from the United Kingdom, Hilmar Reksten and Alf Bjercke from Norway, Prince von Thurn und Taxis and Baron Thyssen-Bornemisza from Germany, Mobutu Sésé Seko Nkuku wa za Banga (don't you just love that name) and Salay Edu from Africa, Mohammed Al-Naki and Agha Abedi from the Middle-East, Gyanendra Dev from Nepal, and Sir Kenneth Fung and Sir Y.K. Pao from Hong Kong. But what's the purpose of all these people meeting? According to the afore mentioned 1980 article in Private Eye:

"The answer lies in the fact that the WWF International, in the cause of conservation, is increasingly shaking hands with economic and environmental ministers from Third World countries who control the important resources and markets which industrialists so desperately need. Under the guise of the WWF, businessmen can casually meet politicians who share their view that what is good for business is good for bank accounts."

20 years later, Dutch Attorney J. Wilgers explains to us how the IUCN and the WWF, according to his own research, have been created as fronts for British neo-colonialism (translation) (2):

"In 1948, the IUCN, the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, was established. The most important person involved was Julian Huxley. This IUCN had a close working relationship with the British Colonial and Foreign Office. All his life Huxley had been working on projects related to the conservation of nature. In 1960, he made a trip through the British colonies that were about to become independent. He made sure that the British government was able to keep their hold on the nature reserves located in the countries of the Commonwealth, even today. Somehow he was able to convince the new African leaders that every person from Africa was a natural born poacher.

  Great Britain has always been preoccupied with the capture of raw materials from the countries in the Commonwealth and the protection of the unlimited supply of it. It is noteworthy that the IUCN still has the affix, "for natural resources" [International Union for Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources]. I also point to the fact that the IUCN is an extension of the government offices and the public sector of the United Kingdom, because in the end, these are the real beneficiaries. A year after Huxley's trip, the WWF was established with the sole purpose of gathering funds for the IUCN. The IUCN went to the background at the moment the WWF came into existence...

30 years later, the WWF controls 10% of the world's surface. They control 40% of Tanzania. At the moment they are focused on South-America. This is something of the last 5 years [since 1994-1995].

There are 2 types of parks: nature parks and strategic parks. The official purpose of the nature parks is the protection of nature. Often, these parks contain important minerals like diamond or uranium. Locals are encouraged to leave or simply chased away. Type 2 are the strategic parks. If you look carefully you'll find that these parks are either located on certain ridges useful for military observation, or they are border transcending parks like for example those in South-Africa and Mozambique... It is remarkable that corridors have been projected in such a way that they cleverly combine the preservation of nature with the gaining of a military advantage...


WWF map from a 2001. New parks have been created in the mean time.

It is known that in the past SAS units of the British army have been flown into South-Africa and were stationed on territory controlled by the WWF with the purpose of conducting military operations... Military units have been trained in these kinds of parks and were later brought in connection with murders in the South-African townships. In the Zambezi-Valley, members of the military wing of the ANC have been shot at from WWF helicopters. The Zambesi-Valley was the primary entrance into South-Africa. Under the cover of fighting poachers ANC members have been executed without any form of trial. I call that an undeclared war or genocide."

Wilgers is talking about one and half million deaths, most of them ANC members. He cites a 1989 Commonwealth report for that number. A second wave between 1990 and 1995 killed about 10,000 people (3). These so called 'strategic parks' don't seem to be limited to Southern Africa. For instance, if you take a look at Pakistan, our 'ally' in the War on Terror, you'll see 5 major national parks in the north of the country. One is located at the border with India, another at the border with China, and yet another one at the border with Northern Afghanistan. The management of these parks is working closely together with the IUCN and the WWF. The Aga Khan Rural Support Program (AKRSP) of 1001 Club member Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan is another partner in many of the same projects in that area. I don't know if these parks are used to conduct some type of military operations, but they sure are conveniently located and fit right in with the words of J. Wilgers.


3 major parks located at the borders of the surrounding countries. More detailed
geographic information can be found at the websites cited.

Wilgers was persecuted by the WWF for making public statements that the World Wide Fund for Nature is a criminal enterprise. Unfortunately for the WWF they lost this case, although they never had to admit Wilgers was right. Wilgers wasn't "knowingly speaking untruths" or something like that. I guess you have to be an attorney to understand that kind of stuff. Years later, I made a call to mr. Wilgers, who told me the 1001 Club is directed by the Privy Council and MI6, which now turns out to be incredibly similar to the leadership of Le Cercle. The last 3 chairmen of Le Cercle were Privy Councilors and deeply involved with British and foreign intelligence.

A lot more has been written about the policies of the World Wide Fund for Nature and their intelligence service TRAFFIC, but to me the real concern is too find out what the purpose of the 1001 is, who its members are, and how its meetings are organized. When you take a look at the limited and in part outdated membership list I've been able to compile, you'll find the leaders and founders of the nature organizations below. Can you imagine how many represented organizations we might find if the entire list is available?

African Wildlife Foundation Used to be called African Wildlife Leadership Foundation. It was founded in 1961 by five individuals. Among them were Russell E. Train, Kermit Roosevelt Jr., and Arthur Arundel (1001 Club) (4). Train founded the World Resources Institute. Roosevelt was a member of Le Cercle, co-founder of the Safari Club, and head of Operation Ajax which overthrew the Shah of Iran.
Aga Khan Rural Support Program (AKRSP) Founded by 1001 Club member Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan. According to the World Bank in 2002: "By many measures the Aga Khan Rural Support Program (AKRSP) is a highly successful NGO-run rural development program. It reaches some 900,000 people in about 1,100 villages in the Northern Areas and Chitral District of Pakistan, near the Afghanistan border."
BIOMA Formerly owned by the Latin American globalist giant Gustavo Cisneros. This leading Venezuelan environmentalist group was shut down after it was caught faking dolphin killings for a campaign against the tuna fishing industry. At times, the WWF and Greenpeace have been accused of doing the same thing.
Club of Rome Officially founded by 1001 Club member Alexander King and FIAT's second man Aurelio Peccei. The former long time head of FIAT, Giovanni Agnelli has been named as a member of the 1001 Club. Two other individuals who helped with the establishing of the Club of Rome were Dean Rusk and Carroll Wilson, both members of the Pilgrims Society. King went on to work for the OECD.
International Council for Game and Wildlife Conservation King Juan Carlos of Spain is the patron of this organization. Carlos is a founder and honorary president of WWF-Spain and has recently been accused of being an overly aggressive hunter, not paying attention to the age of an animal, if it's pregnant, or the amount he shoots (5). Besides being a member of the 1001 Club, King Carlos is a member of the Knights of Malta and very close to Opus Dei. He has been hunting with George H.W. Bush (another Knight of Malta) and other heads of state.
Greenpeace 1001 Club member and Canadian businessman David McTaggart was among the primary founders of Greenpeace in 1971 and became its chief spokesperson. From 1972 and on, he did everything he could to stop the French from conducting nuclear weapons tests in the Pacific. 'Former' SAS units have assisted Greenpeace in this effort, which seems to have given the French an extra reason to bomb the Rainbow Warrior in New Zealand in 1985. McTaggart was chairman of Greenpeace International from 1979 until 1991. He died in a car accident on March 23, 2001 near his home in Italy.
Peace Parks Foundation The founder and chairman of the Peace Parks Foundation is Anton Rupert, who is said to have come up with the idea of the 1001 Club. The Peace Parks Foundation manages the nature parks that are under the control of the WWF. The Club 21 is the primary financier of the foundation and also acts as its advisor. Among its 21 members are numerous companies of the Rupert Family, the Rothschild Foundation (English-Zionist), De Beers (English-Zionist), Deutsche Bank (German), Philips (Dutch), Total (French), and DaimlerChrysler (U.S.). You can find more info here.
Survival Anglia 1001 Club member Lord Buxton was CEO of the Anglia TV Group from 1958 to 1986. He was chairman of the nature documentary producer Survival Anglia from 1986 to 1992. Besides being Prince Philip's right hand, he actively suppressed information about the WWF and the 1001 journalist Kevin Dowling wanted to make public.
Wildcat Foundation According to EIR, 1001 Club member Arthur Arundel founded the Wildcat Foundation. The Wildcat Foundation seems to be a thing of the past.
WWF Worldwide From Hong Kong to South-America, all the national heads of the WWF are members of the 1001 Club.
Zoological Society of London 1001 Club member Lord Solly Zuckerman was president of this environmental group from 1977-1984. Zuckerman stood in close contact with Julian Huxley and was a science advisor to the British government.

Just as Le Cercle, a lot of members of the 1001 Club have a remarkably controversial background. We only know the names of a relatively small amount of club members, which probably gives us a rather lopsided view of the average visitor of the 1001 Club. Persons who have reviewed the entire list undoubtedly chose some of the more controversial individuals. That having been said, I can't think of a good reason to recruit the entire radical Zionist and Arab mafia in a group that is supposed to discuss environmental issues. Below is an extract of the more controversial and/or remarkable individuals. You can find all the names I've been able to gather on the complete membership list. (the list of controversial people keeps growing and their bios aren't summarized below anymore).

Agha Abedi Co-founder and chairman of the BCCI, which went down in the most massive banking scandal ever. The role of the Bank of England was investigated by a Pilgrims Society member who became a member of the Order of the Garter in 2005.
Salem Bin Laden Older brother of Bin Laden. Partner of the Bushes. Killed in a 1988 plane crash after his involvement in the BCCI became known.
Conrad M. Black Son of a British agent who founded Hollinger. Ardent Canadian Zionist who owns the Jerusalem Post. Member of the CFR, Trilateral Commission, and Bilderberg. After he let go of the company, Hollinger International accused him and other insiders of having pillaged the company for at least $400 million. The claim was dismissed by a judge, but a new lawsuit followed. The US Securities and Exchange Commission and the US government are also conducting investigations in some of his other financial dealings.
Louis Mortimer Bloomfield Ardent Canadian Zionist who helped train the Jewish army in the late 1930's. Met numerous times with David Ben Gurion. Has been a member of the SOE, OSS, CIA, FBI Division Five, and co-founder of the shadowy Permindex. Suspected of being involved in the assassination of JFK and the attempted assassinations on Charles de Gaulle. Member of the Order of the British Empire. Said to be gay, just like his good friend J. Edgar Hoover. Good friend of the Bronfmans (1001 Club).
Gustavo Cisneros Latin America's billionaire media baron. Knight of Malta. Member of the chairman's council of the Americas Society, trustee of the Rockefeller University, member of the international advisory board of the Power Corporation of Canada, etc. Accused by Chavez of complicity in the April 2002 coup attempt in Venezuela and of using his private TV station Venevision to undermine the administration. Among his friends are the Rockefellers, Bushes, and King Juan Carlos. He would be a prime candidate for Le Cercle. Also look above at his involvement with the environmental group BIOMA.
Gyanendra Dev Ascended to the throne of Nepal in June 2001 after most of the Royal family had been murdered by a family member. Has dismissed the democratically elected government since October 2002.
Sir Francis de Guingand A former British Major-General and chief of British Military Intelligence. Died back in 1979.
J. Peter Grace Former chairman of the Knights of Malta in the United States. Major player in the fascist underground in the post WWII era. Member of the Pilgrims Society, the CFR, and the Council for National Policy. Chairman of the chemical giant W.R. Grace & Co. from 1945 to 1992, which was especially big in South-America. Close to the Rockefellers.
Nelson B. Hunt He and his brother were oil heirs. His brother sat on the boards of some of the largest U.S. companies. Hunt is a member of The Military and Hospitaller Order of Saint Lazarus (Templar-inspired militant christian organization). He was a major financier of the John Birch Society and the Council for National Policy. He sat on both boards and was president of the CNP in 1983 and 1984. Hunt has done jobs for the CIA, the Vatican, and the Rockefellers. He has been accused of creating death squads and being responsible for a genocide among tribes in the Amazon basin. He is suspected of having stood in contact with Lee Harvey Oswald, the supposed assassin of JFK. He went bankrupt after his effort to corner the silver market failed. Convicted for it in 1988.
Thomas Jones Longtime chairman, chief executive and president of the Northrop Corporation. Has been bribing international government officials all his life. Convicted for some of them.

Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan Said to be a direct descendent of the prophet Mohammed, the ancient Persian royal families, and the Assassin families. That last group worked with the medieval Knights Templar. Accused of being a British intelligence asset. The fact that John Train (cousin of Russell E. Train) was his roommate at Harvard makes this all the more likely (his nephew Karim was a roommate of Jay Rockefeller). Longtime tennis partner of George H.W. Bush and heavy funder of the WWF. Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire and received awards from the Vatican. One of his wives, Anglo-Indian model Nina Dyer, committed suicide 3 years after they divorced. Aga Khan III, Sadruddin's father, was a Freemason and a member of the Privy Council.
Henry Kissinger Accused of everything, convicted of nothing. Fritz Kraemer and Rockefeller protege. Member Pilgrims Society, Le Cercle, the 1001 Club, Bilderberg, Trilateral Commission, Council on Foreign Relations, and Bohemian Grove camp Mandalay. Had a top position at companies like J.P. Morgan, AIG, and Hollinger. Initial head of the 9/11 Commission, but it turned out he was a little bit too controversial.
Meyer Lansky Son of Jewish immigrants and well known mafia leader. He had an account at the BCCI and was a friend of the Zionist and co-1001 Club member Tibor Rosenbaum. Involved in everything from murder, drug smuggling, and illegal weapons sales. He was never prosecuted and died in 1983 in Florida. He was friends with mafia figures like Lucky Luciano and Bugsy Siegel.
Lavy, Leslie Former head of the defunct David Samuel Trust (1970's information). 2005: Chairman of the Heritage Committee of the Commonwealth Jewish Council. The Council is allied with the British Commonwealth and the World Jewish Congress of which Edgar Bronfman in the long time president. Coincidentally, Namebase lists only one source of information about Leslie Lavy, which is a 1976 book about 1001 Club member and drug runner Robert Vesco. What are the odds?
Lippe-Bisterfeld, Bernhard von Born and educated in Germany. Controversial past. Became Prince of the Netherlands. Commander of the Dutch domestic army 1946-1976, Inspector-General of the Dutch Air Force, Army and Navy 1946-1976. Approached by Vatican prelate Joseph Retinger to establish Bilderberg. Chairman Bilderberg 1954-1976. He had to resign from all of the above after he became involved in the Lockheed Affair of 1976. The ones who bribed him and handed him the money were also 1001 Club members. Bernhard was involved in the founding of the 1001 Club and was the head of WWF International and WWF Holland. Together with Edmond de Rothschild he was the godfather of Alexia Grinda, one of his extramarital daughters (he met the mother when visiting the Rothschild family in 66/67). He loved to duck hunt with 1001 Club member Stavros Niarchos. Good friend of Zionist Mossad agent Tibor Rosenbaum, another member of the 1001 Club.

Cyril Magnin was a good friend of Mayor Joseph Alioto (president of the San Francisco National Bank). Some people have accused Cyril Magnin and Joseph Alioto of having been members of the mafia and the circle that killed JFK. Mae Brussell, of who Magnin was an uncle, was a dedicated conspiracy researcher. She died of rapid-spreading cancer in 1988 while investigating child abuse with a connection to Army Intelligence and Nazis.
Boris "Bobby" Marmor Convicted embezzler-turned-property-developer and casino owner whose activities are again under official investigation. (1980 Spy Magazine info)
Fred Meuser The bagman for the $1.1 million bribe to Prince Bernhard from Lockheed Corp. in 1976.
Paul Mellon Son of the extremely powerful and ruthless Andrew Mellon. Paul became an OSS station chief in London during WWII. After the war he and the family's companies worked closely with the CIA. Richard Helms, when head of the CIA, made regular visits to his house. He was a member of the Pilgrims Society.
Peter Munk A hungarian Jew, regular skiing partner of Prince Charles, and one of the wealthiest men in Canada. CEO and chairman of the world's largest gold-mining corporation, Barricks Gold, which was founded and majority owned by the controversial Iranian arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi. Khashoggi has close ties to the British royal family and his career has been jump started by the Bin Laden family. Khashoggi has been a business partner of Wally Hilliard, the financial backer of Rudi Dekkers who trained the main 9/11 hijackers. Munk tried to keep it under wraps that his company purchased the rights to a gold mine in Nevada -- containing $10 billion in gold -- for only $10,000. His U.S. gold mines have been accused of poisoning the local water. Munk was accused of insider trading back in 1967.
Tibor Rosenbaum A Hungarian Jew who became a a Mossad agent in 1951. He was a friend of Prince Bernhard. In 1958, with Edmond de Rothschild, he was a founder of the Swiss BCI through which he funded Mossad and Permindex operations. The bank was kind of a forerunner of the BCCI and equally involved in money laundering.
Edmond Safra Descendent of a Syrian-Jewish banking family. His ancestors were gold traders in the Ottoman empire. Founder and head of the reasonably large Republic Bank. In the 1980's and 1990's he and his banking system have been investigated for drug and money laundering practices ranging from the U.S. to Moscow and from Turkey to South-America. In 2000, the Republic New York Corporation and its sister company Safra Republic Holdings were acquired by HSBC for $10.3 billion. He has many banking friends in England, Switzerland, and Italy. Safra died in a fire in his Monte-Carlo apartment back in 1999. One of his male nurses supposedly set fire to the building in order to rescue him and be the hero. Among the friends of the Safra couple were Nancy Reagan, Condoleezza Rice, and Prince Charles.
Mobuto Sese Seko Long time dictator of Zaire, which went from one of the richest countries in Africa to one of the poorest. In 1961, Mobutu overthrew the communist Lumumba and, with the support of Belgium, executed him. He forced foreign business interests out of the country. Supported the Rwandan Hutu's, even after the 1994 genocide. When his government issued an order in November 1996 forcing Tutsis to leave Zaire on penalty of death, they erupted in rebellion. From eastern Zaire they launched an offensive to overthrow Mobutu which succeeded in 1997. Laurence Kabila (assassinated in 2001) came to power. The German BND accused Vatican agent Herbert Batliner from Lichtenstein of laundering money for Mobutu.
Prince Johannes von Thurn und Taxis The assets of the family are managed through the Thurn und Taxis Group. This is an old and powerful family from the Habsburg empire which went through some rough times during WWII. After the Prince suddenly died in 1992, his widow, Gloria, is doing a great job in further rebuilding the wealth of the family and raising his son. The Palace of Thurn and Taxis in Bavaria is still in use today and contains more rooms than Buckingham Palace. The corrupt neo-fascist German politician Franz Josef Strauss (Le Cercle) died in 1988 while on a hunting trip with the prince. In 1990, Joseph Brewda wrote something very interesting for EIR (6): "On Oct. 15, 1982, a month after the 1982 massacres, Sharon held meetings—in the Chouf Mountains of Lebanon and at his Negev ranch—with Falange leader Camille Chamoun, Uri Dan, Rupert Murdoch, Charles Douglas-Home, and others, to move the "Landscam" West Bank real estate grab forward. On Nov. 15, 1982, a final meeting took place on several real estate purchases, mostly through Arab middle-men, to push the massive expansion of Jewish settlements throughout the West Bank—at a handsome profit. Attending the meeting at Sharon's ranch were: Kissinger, Lord Harlech (Sir David Ormsby-Gore), Prince Johannes von Thurn und Taxis, Tory Parliamentarian Julian Amery, Sir Edmund Peck, and MI6 Mideast mandarin Nicholas Elliot. " I could be wrong, but I never heard EIR, Joseph Brewda, or pretty much anyone else talk in any detail about Le Cercle. In the meantime I found out that Julian Amery was the chairman of this secret intelligence group and Nicholas Elliot was another important member. Amery's father was a hugely important Zionist. Look at the article about Le Cercle for all the details. Of course it's no surprize that Kissinger is said to have been a member too. By the way, last year the prince's favorite fashion designer, Rudolph Moshammer, was found dead in a suburb of Munich with a phone cord tied around his neck. This person was also a favorite fashion designer of Arnold Schwarzenegger and King Carl Gustaf of Sweden. Maybe it's nothing, but I come across a lot of strange deaths investigating this circuit.
Baron Heinrich von Thyssen-Bornemisza The Thyssen family's fortune was built upon a steel and armaments empire. In contrast with the Thurn un Taxis family, the Thyssen were one of the biggest supporters of the Hitler regime and had been building up the German war machine in cooperation with the Harrimans, Bushes, Rockefellers, and Fords. Pilgrims Society member John J. McCloy would acquit his father of all the Nuremberg charges, together with Hjalmar Schacht and Alfried Krupp. His second marriage, in 1954, was to Anglo-Indian fashion model Nina Dyer. After they divorced she married prophet Mohammed descendent and 1001 Club member Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan, divorced again, and subsequently committed suicide. His third wife, from which he also divorced, would later hook up with Alexander Onassis, son of Aristotle Onassis (1001 Club family). He married 2 more times. Today his empire has merged with that of the Krupp family, forming ThyssenKrupp AG, which has about 190.000 employees worldwide and annual sales of about 40 billion euros (2004). Franz Josef Strauss has been accused of taking at least one half a million dollar bribe from the Thyssens in order to promote some of their weapon systems. The company is represented at Bohemian Grove camp Mandalay through James H. Brandi (Pilgrims Society family). George H.W. Bush has also visited the camp at times, probably to remember those good old days.
Robert Vesco The king of the fugitive financiers. Business partner of Mafia chief Meyer Lansky. Accused of stealing $224 million dollar in 1973 and donated $200,000 to Richard Nixon's re-election campaign. He tried to buy an island and establish it as a sovereign state. Stuck in a Cuban jail until 2009. He will be released when he is 74.
Lew Wasserman Jewish. Gave many millions to Jewish and Catholic causes. Donated so much to Catholic charities that Pope John Paul II asked to meet him in 1987. Wasserman was a god in the Hollywood movie business up to the 1980's. Stories circulated of executives who fainted or vomited in the midst of Wasserman tirades. Among his friends and business partners were many mafia figures, but his full involvement hasn't been fully explored. Died in 2002.

A few other names were only mentioned in his book 'Het Oranjekapitaal'.

  • Just went through two books of Dutch investigative author Philip Dröge, a person who also has written for large Dutch newspapers. The books are mentioned in the 1001 Club article and the new names added to the 1001 Club list are: The 2nd Lord Beaverbrook (son of the pro-Nazi UK government official; nephew was a recent head of Le Cercle; very detailed bio available), Walter Annenberg (Pilgrims Society; from highest level mafia boss to US ambassador to the UK; very detailed bio available), Emilio Azcárraga Milmo Jr. (Mexican media mogul), Ali Ahmed (Pakistani project developer; swindler), Shah of Iran (member Safari Club of Le Cercle members de Marenches and Kermit Roosevelt), Ferdinand Grapperhaus (Dutch tax expert/former politician; once involved with Ali), and Herbert Batliner (works in Vatican City; named in Le Cercle article; laundered money for Marcos, Mobutu (1001), Escobar, and Helmut Kohl; worked with criminal Walther Kiep, the Thyssen guy mentioned in the intro article). The bio of Bernhard has been expanded greatly and basically gives his entire history. The bios of the following 1001 Club members have been improved slightly: Tibor Rosenbaum (Mossad-Rothschild agent whom's BCI co-funded Permindex) and Louis Mortimer Bloomfield (SOE-OSS-CIA-Mossad-FBI agent who largely coordinated Permindex).

    Maybe you noticed it again in this update: you keep bumping into the same groups and the same people

Abedi, Agha Hasan Shiite Muslim. President of United Bank until November 1972. Founder (1972) and president of the Bank of Credit and Commerce International (BCCI), which was initially financed by wealthy individuals like Sheik Zayed bin Sultan al-Nahyan. The bank's early growth was concentrated in the Gulf region, where Abedi could take advantage of his contacts. The bank had been only a year old when the oil embargo started (October 1973), but already it was operating in four Gulf states and had opened offices in the immigrant neighborhoods of London. Between 1973 and 1974, BCCI branches began popping up in much fancier neighborhoods of London. Bank of Credit and Commerce International SA was registered in the Caymans in 1975. It functioned as the principal banking subsidiary of BCCI Holdings SA, which had been established in Luxembourg in 1972. Beneath these two umbrella groups, Abedi had begun forming a bewildering array of additional companies and banking entities.
Agnelli, Giovanni "Gianni" The history of Fiat begins with his grandfather, Giovanni Agnelli. In 1899, Giovanni signed a contract with Emanuele Bricherasio di Cacherano, an eccentric Turinese nobleman looking for investors, as a partner in Fiat. Giovanni managed to become the majority shareholder in 1906, but supposedly through illegitimate means. A long judicial battle would follow until May 1912, when Giovanni was acquitted of the charges. The company started to make large profits in the wake of WWI due to all the domestic and foreign military orders it received. In 1918, Agnelli published a book entitled 'European Federation or League of Nations', arguing for a federalist Europe as antidote to destructive nationalism. Eduardo Agnelli, his son, died in a plane crash in 1935. The wife of Eduardo (Gianni's mother), who died in a car accident in 1945, was Virginia Bourbon del Monte, daughter of the Prince of San Faustino and an American named Jane Campbell. The elder Giovanni died 3 weeks later.

Gianni was born in 1921 in Turin, Italy. He graduated in Law from Turin University. During World War II he served as a Cavalry Officer in the Italian Expeditionary Force on the Russian front, with the "Lodi" Tank Reconnaissance Unit in Tunisia and in the "Legnano" Division of the Italian Liberation Corps. For his conduct in Tunisia he was awarded the War Cross for Military Valour. Became president of Juventus (soccer club) in 1947 and over the eight years of his stewardship oversaw the establishment of Juventus as the powerful force in Italian and European football that it is today. In 1955 Giovanni Agnelli married Marella, daughter of Prince Caracciolo di Castagneto and Margaret Clark. Joined Fiat in 1943 as vice chairman. In 1957 David Rockefeller paid a visit to Italy and met with Agnelli. The two became friends and several years later David invited Agnelli to the newly created International Advisory Council of Chase Manhattan. He was appointed managing director of FIAT in 1963. Became managing director, chairman, and principal shareholder of Fiat in 1966. As head of Fiat, he oversaw 4.4% of Italy's GNP, 3.1% of its industrial workforce, and 16.5% of its industrial investments in research. He opened factories from Russia (at the time Soviet Union) to South America, and started international alliances and joint ventures (like Iveco) which marked a new industrial mentality. In 1970, Richard Nixon and Henry Kissinger met Agnelli at Hotel Quirinale in Rome. After this meeting Kissinger and Agnelli became good friends. In 1973 Agnelli helped with the creation of the Trilateral Commission. According to Adnkronos, Agnelli was friends with Giscard d'Estaing, the Rothschild family and Lord Carrington, Katherine Graham, Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., Felix Rohatyn, senator Ted Kennedy, the writer Truman Capote, Andy Warhol, and international architects as Renzo Piano, Kenzo Tange, Norman Foster, and Frank O. Gehry. Zbigniew Brzezinski was another influential person he often met with. Chairman of the family’s financial company, the Istituto Finanziario Industriale, the Exor Group SA, the Giovanni Agnelli Foundation, and La Stampa publishing company. He was also on the board of Credito Italiano and of the Mediobanca and was a member of the international committee of Chase Manhattan Bank (until a few years before his death). In May 1974 he was elected chairman of the Confederation of Industry (Confindustria), a position he held until July 1976, when he handed over to his chosen successor, Guido Carli, a former Governor of the Bank of Italy. According to Italian sources, Agnelli was a co-founder of the European Round Table in 1983 (Umberto Agnelli, his younger brother, was one of the original members), together with Pehr Gyllenhammar and Etienne Davignon, both also close to Kissinger, Rockefellers, and the Rothschilds. Named senator for life in 1991 and subscribed to the independent parliamentary group. Later named a member of the senate's defence commission. Honorary vice-president of the Association for the Monetary Union of Europe anno 1998, which was co-founded by Etienne Davignon and brought us the EMU. Member of the International Advisory Board of the Council on Foreign Relations. Honorary chairman of the Council for Relations between Italy and the United States. Correspondent member of the Academy of Moral and Political Science of the Institut de France and a member of the Chairman's Council of the (Rockefeller's) Museum of Modern Art in New York (at least in 1999). Trustee of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation. Stood down as chairman of FIAT in 1996. Giovanni Alberto Agnelli, the eldest son of Umberto Agnelli, was the first person to be pointed out as Giovanni Agnelli's successor, but died in 1997 of a rare form of intestinal cancer, age 33. His only son, Edoardo, who wasn't interested in making cars, committed suicide on November 15, 2000 by jumping off a bridge in Turin; Gianni himself joined the police at the scene. The Agnelli family was one of the largest investors in Rockefeller Center until 2001, together with David Rockefeller, Goldman Sachs, and Stavros Niarchos. At that point the Speyer and Crown families took over, both closely connected to the Rockefeller interests. Agnelli was a member of the 1001 Club, the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderberg steering committee, the European Round Table, and a governor of the Atlantic Institute for International Affairs. Died in 2003. John Elkann (ERT member) is expected to become the new head of the Agnelli interests in the coming years.

Ahmed, Ali Corrupt Bengal/Pakistani project developer. Head Finance Intercontinental in London in the 1970s. Friend of Mobutu and Prince Bernhard. Persuaded Bernhard to convince the Moroccan King Muhammed II to invest in a certain hotel. The deal went awry and it took 20 years for the relations between the two royal houses to normalize. Ahmed disappeared in 1976.
Aitken, Sir Max Son of the 1st Lord Beaverbrook (1879-1964) who lived in Canada. The elder William Maxwell "Max" Aitken, the 1st Lord Beaverbrook, became a stockbroker and by 1910 had made a fortune from Canadian cement mills. Went on to become a conservative member of Parliament who visited the Western front during WWI. David Lloyd George granted Aitken the title Lord Beaverbrook in 1918, and appointed him as Minister of Information that same year. During the war Beaverbrook acquired a controlling interest in the Daily Express. Beaverbrook immediately set about a coordinated British propaganda programme, responsible for the dissemination of war information at home, among Allies and in neutral countries. His close colleague, Lord Northcliffe, meanwhile was responsible for directing propaganda towards the populations of enemy nations. Turned the Daily Express into the most widely read newspaper in the world. Founded the Sunday Express in 1921. Purchased the Evening Standard in 1929. An employee of Lord Beaverbrook was Sefton Delmer, who was sent to head the German Daily Express office in the early 1930s. Here Delmer became a friend of Ernst Roehm, who arranged for him to become the first British journalist to interview Adolf Hitler. In the 1932 general election Delmer travelled with Hitler on his private aircraft. In 1933 he was also with Hitler when he inspected the Reichstag Fire. Delmer returned to England in 1940 and joined the SOE in its fight against the Nazis. Before and during the initial stages of WWII, Beaverbrook was a strong supporter of Anglo-German Peace, which also included Sir Harry Brittain, Lloyd George, Lord Halifax, Rab Butler, the Duke of Hamilton (royal housekeeper; the one Nazi second-in-command Rudolf Hess tried to reach in May 1941), Sir Nevile Henderson, Sir Samuel Hoare, and seemingly also some senior MI6 figures. Operation Dynamo was completed on June 4, 1940 and Hitler just allowed the British and French forces to escape back to England. Informed historians like the well-connected Sir Basil Liddell Hart (interviewed Nazi generals and knew many important people in the British government) have written that Hitler did not want war with the British Empire, because at least in the initial stages of the conflict the British Empire would devour too many resources to maintain. The earlier mentioned Sefton Delmer wrote in his 1962 book 'Black Boomerang': "Beaverbrook had paid several visits to Berlin between 1935 and 1939 and on each occasion he had talked at length with Hitler and Hess. They were talks in which Hitler, sometimes in the presence of Hess, had gone out of his way to impress his British visitor with his essential reasonableness and good sense. Not without some success, as was shown by Beaverbrook's refusal to believe in 1939 that Hitler could be so foolish as to forego the immense gains that avoidance of war would certainly have brought him... In neutral Switzerland, the Aga Khan had told Ribbentrop's amateur agent, Prince Max Hohenlohe, that Lord Beaverbrook was all for peace and compromise with Hitler. 'Beaverbrook,' so the Prince in a letter to the German Foreign Office on July the 25th, igq.o quoted the Aga Khan as saying, 'is the only man who has the courage, the power and the standing to bring about a change in England even against Churchill, since Churchill has for a long time been in Beaverbrook's pay.'" Minister for Aircraft Production 1940-1941. On September 9, 1941 Beaverbrook first met with Rudolf Hess (Delmer): "Dressed, as ever, in his sober blue serge suit he walked into Hess's sick room, flung his soft black hat on a table and advanced towards Hess with the outstretched hand and wide cheery smile of an old friend. It was the very opposite to the frozen formality of Lord Simon... Hess now stated that the object of his flight to Scotland had been to make peace with Britain "on any terms", providing that Britain would then join Germany in attacking Russia. It was an odd statement for him to make in view of the fact that he had not mentioned the coming attack on Russia with so much as a word when he had his talk with Lord Simon. And to Kirkpatrick he had denied point blank that Hitler meant to attack Russia. Nor had the terms he put down in writing at the time of his talk with Lord Simon suggested Germany's readiness for peace with Britain "at any price"... Hess's main theme was that the British were wrong if they hoped that the conflict with the Soviet Union would so weaken both Russia and Germany that at the end of it Britain's 19th-century hegemony over Europe would be restored... 'world domination awaits the Soviet Union in the future, if her power is not broken now', Hess said." Minister of Supply 1941-1942. Minister of War Production 1942. Lord Privy Seal 1943-1945.

Sir Max Aitken, the 1001 Club member, is also known as the 2nd Lord Beaverbrook. Born in 1910 in Canada. Served as a pilot during World War II, earning the Distinguished Service Order and Distinguished Flying Cross. Reached the rank of Group Captain. Member of Parliament for Holborn 1945-1950. After the war he entered the family newspaper business as a director of the Express Group and Beaverbrook Newspapers Ltd. Chairman of Beaverbrook Newspapers since at least the 1960s. Chancellor of the University of New Brunswick. Died in 1985.

Privy councilor Jonathan Aitken, the former head of Le Cercle who was deeply involved in illegal arms transports, is a great nephew of the 2st Lord Beaverbrook.

Annenberg, Walter H. Son of Moses Annenberg, publisher of The Philadelphia Inquirer. Born in 1908. The story of Moses & Max (older brother) Annenberg is a tale of a hardworking immigrants and financial geniuses who got their start working alongside violent Chicago gangsters while employed by newspaper titan William Randolph Hearst at the turn of the last century. After some time, the owner of the Tribune, Bertie McCormick, decided to hire Moses Annenberg away from Hearst. For a while, the Annenberg brothers were sending out thugs to battle each other. Fifteen years later, Max Annenberg was alleged to be an associate and friend of Chicago crime boss Al Capone. In 1924, Moses Annenberg got involved with a racing news service in Chicago and Milwaukee. Soon there were reports that those who didn't take the Annenberg race wire service were themselves the victims of beatings, fire bombings and, on occasion, murder. The crime syndicates had come to be dependent on Moses Annenberg. Without his service they couldn't operate their illegal gambling rackets. In 1938, the Secretary of the Interior, Harold Ickes, traveled from Washington D.C. to give a speech in Philadelphia condemning Moses Annenberg, who, at that time, was backing the Republican candidate for governor of Pennsylvania. Ickes charged it was Annenberg's violent tactics during the Chicago newspaper wars that inspired gangsters like Al Capone. Ickes said that "the hiring of Moses Annenberg by Hearst was the beginning of the subsequent flood of lawlessness that almost engulfed law enforcement in the United States." Moses, Walter, and 2 other business associates were indicted in 1939 for evading more than $2 million in taxes and another $3 million in penalties and interest. Moses was later separately indicted for conspiring to bribe a Philadelphia detective. In April 1940, Moses Annenberg agreed to plead guilty to one count -- "willfully" evading $1,217,296 -- and to pay almost $9 million in fines and penalties. In exchange for his plea the government agreed to drop all charges against his son, Walter Annenberg. In the 1940s, Walter Annenberg established Triangle Broadcasting, which at its peak controlled 6 AM radio stations, 6 FM radio stations, and 6 TV stations. He is also the founder and owner of Triangle Publications, which owned the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Daily News, TV Guide and Seventeen Magazine. Received the Alfred I. DuPont Award (Pilgrim) in 1951. Received the Marshall Field Award (Pilgrim) in 1958. Founded The Annenberg School for Communication at The University of Pennsylvania in 1958. Ambassador to England 1969-1974. During his assignment to Britain, Annenberg appointed Gorden Gray as chairman of his Triangle Broadcasting Company 1969–1975. Gray was very big in government and intelligence since 1947, the original director of the Psychological Strategy Board, and a heir to the R.J. Reynolds fortune. Annenberg founded The Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Southern California in 1971. In 1988, News Corp. acquired Triangle Publications, including TV Guide. Founder-trustee and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Eisenhower Medical Center in Rancho Mirage, California. Annenberg also served as Trustee of the Eisenhower Exchange Fellowships and the Winston Churchill Traveling Fellowships. He was Emeritus Trustee of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Philadelphia Museum of Art, The University of Pennsylvania and The Peddie School.

Arundel, Arthur "Nick" Windsor His father, Russell M. Arundel, self-proclaimed "Prince of Princes", was a Washington lobbyist for Pepsi Cola. He founded and became president of the Pepsi-Cola Bottling Company of Long Island and was a publisher of the the Reston Times, the Loudoun Times Mirror, the Fauquier Democrat, and the Rappahannock News. In 1948, he founded the Principality of Outer Baldonia on a four-acre rocky island 16 miles off the coast of Nova Scotia. With its governmental charter and sixty-nine admirals of the Baldonian Navy (fishermen who harvested tuna in the surrounding ocean), Outer Baldonia bore all the hallmarks of what would become an increasingly common type of micro-nation—the whimsical state. Its governmental charter insisted that citizens swear, drink, and lie about the size of fish they had caught, yet Outer Baldonia showed that even a joke country could punch above its weight when Arundel declared war on the Soviet Union. It took some time for this news to reach the USSR—diplomatic channels had yet to be formed between the two nations—but when it did, a coruscating article in a state-controlled Soviet publication condemned Baldonia's war-mad "fuehrer" and declared that Outer Baldonia’s constitution had the aim of "turning his subjects into savages." In 1952, Arundel was questioned by a Senate panel that was investigating the fitness for office of Senator Joseph R. McCarthy (R-Wis.) The questioning was about a $20,000 note Arundel had endorsed for the senator in 1947. Arundel said the endorsement was a minor financial transaction for a friend.

The son, the 1001 Club member, was trained as a propaganda specialist for the CIA in Vietnam in the 1950s (listed as a CIA employee in the 'Pentagon Papers'). Founded the African Wildlife Leadership Foundation (now AWF) of Nairobi, Kenya and Washington D.C., together with former OSS and CIA hand Kermit Roosevelt (Le Cercle), WWF chairman Russell E. Train, and two others. Russell Train and Arthur Arundel were some the more prominent members attending a May 1999 fund raising diner of the AWF in Washington's Chevy Chase Club. Both Arundel and Train still are trustee emeritus of the African Wildlife Foundation. Arundel founded the Wildcat Foundation, which funded the WWF. His sister, Jocelyn Arundel Sladen, was an IUCN liaison to the United States and an intimate of Julian Huxley. Arundel owns and publishes about 20 newspapers in Northern Virginia through his ARCOM Publishing company. According to EIR, Arundel was a prime mover in getting LaRouche behind bars after the release of his book 'Dope Inc.'. Anno 2005, he is chairman Virginia of the Gold Cup steeplechase race at Great Meadow in The Plains. Wrote the foreword of a 2002 novel by Ray Derby called 'The Shadow Government'. The book is about the secret government that protects us from the evil terrorists who try to unleash bio weapons and nukes on our innocent population. Arthur Arundel is succeeded by his son Peter W. Arundel. He has another son called John.

Batliner, Herbert Senior lawyer and fund manager from Liechtenstein who is said to administer more than 10,000 letterbox companies and foundations. In 1974, Prince Bernhard sold his Castle Warmelo to the Evlyma Trust in Liechtenstein, a subsidiary of Tibor Rosenbaum's (1001 Club; Mossad agent; criminal) BCI. The Trust was managed by Herbert Batliner. President of Pontificia Accademia delle Scienze Sociali located in Vatican City. Good friend of the former German chancellor Helmut Kohl (chancellor from 1982 to 1998). A 2002 Observer article reported about a classified BND report which accused Herbert Batliner of laudering money for Kohl's Christian Democrat party (CDU). Besides having funneled money to Kohl's political party, the BND also accused Batliner of having done the same for pro-western Ferdinand Marcos of the Philippines, drug lord Pablo Escobar, and Mobutu Sese Seko of Zaire/Congo (1001 Club). As one might expect, Batliner has been cleared of all charges. The globalist Walther Leisler Kiep (bio), one-time treasurer of Kohl's CDU, was involved in receiving these illegal campaign donations. At the same time Kiep negotiated illegal arms deals for the Thyssens, ironically just as Franz Joseph Strauss, Kohl's original neofascist opponent.
Beitz, Berthold Like his father, Berthold studied to be a banker. In April 1939, at the age of twenty-five, he was engaged by the Royal Dutch Shell Oil Company in Hamburg. It was as a result of the expertise he had acquired in the strategically important oil industry that Beitz could have his military service deferred and receive a wartime commission as the business manager of the Beskidian Oil Company—later renamed the Carpathian Oil Company—at Boryslaw in eastern Galicia. Protected the Jews in his company from prosecution and has been awarded for that. Beitz was an important German industrialist of the second half of the 20th century. In 1953 he took over as CEO and chairman of Krupp Industries (picked by Alfried Krupp). Chairman of Grundig AG until 1993. Chairman of the Krupp Foundation in 2003, while in his nineties. He is a honorary member of the International Olympic Committee.
Bin Laden, Sheikh Salem He was the older brother of Osama Bin Laden and one of only four Saudis in the 1001 Club (late eighties). James Reynolds Bath was his U.S. representative from 1978 and on, through which he made large investments in the United States. In 1979 Bath bought a 5% share in George W. Bush's first oil company, Arbusto. Bath made his fortune by investing money for Sheikh Kalid bin Mahfouz (20% stake in BCCI) and Salem Bin Laden into the BCCI, which was indicted in 1988 for being involved in a huge amount of drug laundering. Salem Bin Laden died in a small plane crash over Houston in 1988. Finally, in 1991, the bank went out of business. This money from the BCCI has likely been used in financing the Mudjahedeen and various terrorist organizations that came into existence after the Afghan war.
 
Bjercke, Alf R. Leaving school, he became a cowboy in Argentina, before studying at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Joined the Royal Norwegian Air Force in Toronto in 1941, managing director and chairman of a Norwegian paint company, which set up sister companies in Ethiopia, Denmark, and Sweden.

With the latter in 1963 came an appointment as Tunisia's honorary consul-general in Oslo, a post now passed on to his son. Headed the Polio Plus campaign, chairman of the Norwegian Athletic Association, member of Norway's Olympic committee, president of the International Wine & Food Society, charter member of the Peace Park Club of southern Africa, author on diplomacy and business ethics.

Zionist who owns the Jerusalem Post. Member Council on Foreign Relations, member of the Trilateral Commission, visitor of Bilderberg. In May 2004, Hollinger International, now free of Black's control, filed a $1.25 billion racketeering lawsuit against Black and other former corporate insiders, accusing them of pillaging the company of more than $400 million. In October 2004, a judge dismissed the racketeering claims, and Hollinger refiled without them, adding neocon Richard N. Perle as a defendant.
Bloomfield, Louis Mortimer Ardent Canadian zionist. Joined the British military and served in Palestine as an Intelligence Officer under general Charles Wingate. Involved in training the Jewish army in Haganah from 1936 to 1939. Worked for the British SOE (competitor of MI6; role taken over by the SAS). Recruited in the OSS in 1942, and was given the rank of major. The OSS became the CIA in 1947, and Bloomfield continued doing contract work for the new organization.

It has also been suspected of coordinating the failed assassinations on Charles de Gaulle (1890-1970). Personal consultant and good friend to FBI head J. Edgar Hoover and has been considered the same to the Bronfmans. Bloomfield and J. Edgar Hoover have both been described as homosexuals. Knight of St. John of Jerusalem and a member of the 1001 Club.
Bronfman, Edgar (Took the recent head of the family) Billionaire Edgar Bronfman Jr. inherited the helm of the Seagram Company Ltd. in 1994. His grandfather Sam Bronfman built the beverage powerhouse, but the grandson has expanded it into telecommunications by buying a piece of Time Warner and pursuing a personal movie bug: The former teenage amateur filmmaker grew up to buy 80 percent of MCA/Universal Studios in 1995. Edgar Bronfman, Jr. is the third-generation heir of one of North America’s great business dynasties. In less than a decade, he transformed the Seagram wine and liquor business into one of the world’s largest media and entertainment conglomerates. Unable to keep pace with the late 1990s consolidation of media giants such as Disney and Time Warner, Bronfman in 2000 sold the family business to Vivendi S.A. in what turned out to be one of the most disastrous media deals in recent memory. Bronfman re-entered the media/music business in December 2003 with the acquisition of Time Warner’s Music Group. President of the World Jewish Congress.
Brusse, Henk Founder of Buttonboss (button producer in the UK, Netherlands and Germany). Heavy donor to the WWF since 1982. Prince Bernhard attended some of the companies parties and offered him membership in the 1001 in 1996. He has been to Palace Soestdijk.

He later came to strongly regret the decision, one of the first administration members to do so. Along with other government leaders during Vietnam, he has been accused of war crimes. Bundy was president of the Ford Foundation from 1966 to 1969 and was a member of the 1001 Club. People like Rostow, Kissinger, and Brzezinski are considered his successors.

After the revelation, the money was said to be used by the Iraqis to buy food and agriculture equipment, but in reality they were buying loads of military equipment. His consultancy firm, Kissinger Associates, set up the China Ventures fund with CITIC in 1989, which would be in the same year that he defended the Tiananmen Square massacre, arguing against sanctions being placed on China.

In 2000, Henry Kissinger was quoted by Business Wire: "Hank Greenberg, Pete Peterson and I have been close friends and business associates for decades." Maurice Greenburg is head of AIG and Peter G. Peterson is head of The Blackstone Group, which is the other major partner of Kissinger Associates. Peterson is also a former chairman of Lehman Brothers. Kissinger is a friend of Lynn Forester and introduced her to Sir Evelyn de Rothschild at the 1998 Bilderberg conference. They would soon become married. After Pulitzer Price winning journalist Peter Arnett produced a CNN report on Operation Tailwind (a Vietnam operation in which US Special Forces allegedly killed US defectors with Sarin) in 1998, Kissinger and his friends called up CNN to demand that the news network should distance itself from the story (a story which CNN initially approved) and made sure that the producers of the show were publicly humiliated and fired. Arnett was fired again by NBC and National Geographic in March 2003 immediately after he said the Bush Administration was looking for a plan B now that Iraqi resistance turned out to be much more intense than expected. Within 24 hours the Daily Mail hired him. When Henry Kissinger is invited to speak at the United Nations Association on April 11, 2001 Lord Jacob Rothschild is flanking his side. Picked as the initial head of the 9/11 investigating committee in 2003, although he turned out to be too controversial to remain in that position.

Lippe-Biesterfeld, Prince Bernhard van Born in 1911 as a count. Bernhard was born and educated in Germany. Became a member of Sturm (Hitler youth movement) around 1931, which is 2 years before Hitler came to power. Became a member of the SS in 1934, which consisted of Hitler's most elite and most trusted aides. This automatically ment he also became a member of the NSDAP. At the Nuremberg trials the aristocratic Nazi Friedrich Eberstein would claim how the Nazi party's prestige sky-rocketed after aristocrats like Bernhard (specifically mentioned him) joined the movement. Briefly worked with Gerhard Fritze, who owned an Amsterdam bank financed by the Swedish Wallenberg family. Because of his mother's connections, Bernhard went to work for NW-7, the IG Farben industrial espionage unit, and ended up in it's Paris branch in 1935. IG Farben was one of the main companies that built up the Nazi war machine. It also made massive use of Auschwitz slave labor. While in Paris, and staying with the aristocratic Kotzebue family, he became a close friend of Sefton Delmer, who was a Daily Express journalist and an agent for the Hitler- & Hess intimate Lord Beaverbrook (his son was a member of the 1001 Club), not to mention an employee of British intelligence. Delmer had been in Berlin until 1933, having direct access to Hitler and the Nazi party. Tom Driberg, a homosexual communist journalist who worked for Beaverbrook too, also approached Bernhard in Paris. Driberg, who already was a friend of Guy Burgess, worked for the Soviets, codename LePage, and Bernhard considered him a friend too. Around this time Bernhard had met with future Dutch queen Juliana, who was quite desperate for a husband at that moment. Bernhard's IG Farben financial advisor initially acted as a middle man between the two. It took Bernhard quite a bit of effort to convince Wilhelmina that he was the right person to marry her daughter, because he wasn't an exceptionally high aristocrat and was considered a too extravagant. He was able to marry Juliana in 1937. At this point he wasn't a member of the SS anymore, but only after his marriage with Juliana, one day to be exact, he resigned from the NSDAP. Unfortunately, he didn't put an autograph under his letter, so officially he was a member of the NSDAP until 1938, which is when his membership automatically expired. Earlier, on November 14, 1996 he met with Hitler to renounce his German citizenship. In his personal diaries Hitler refers to Bernhard as a "gigolo", but publicly the marriage is considered a good thing. Around this time Bernhard met with friends at IG Farben and the SS to say goodbye. Not long after the Spanish civil war started in 1936 between the fascist Franco and the democratically elected government, Bernhard and his brother had the nerve to show up at a royal party in the Hague dressed as Franco officers. In 1938, Bernhard's responsibilities increase and he has to work closely with Francois van 't Sant, Queen Wilhelmina's right hand and the most important liaison officer between MI6 and GSIII, the Dutch military intelligence agency. Van 't Sant communicates anything that is happening in Dutch high society to the British and makes a lot of money in the process. Bernhard starts communicating information between Queen Wilhelmina and GSIII, in which he makes many friends. At the same time Bernhard starts to work as an informant for GSIII, communicating messages from his German friends to the Dutch intelligence service. His younger brother Aschwin, an officer of a German panzer division, continually passes messages to him. They even travel together occasionally. In the summer of 1938 they visit King George VI, under the wary eyes of MI6. It is believed that they are discussing a German coup in preparation by admiral and spychief Wilhelm Canaris (old friend of the Lippe-Biesterfelds; boss of Aschwin; didn't seem to appreciate the imperial aspirations of Hitler) and several of his associates. This coup is called off in late 1939. As Bernhard is sure the Germans will attack the Netherlands soon, not allowing it to be neutral, he quietly started to receive his family's German possessions, moved to The Hague, and made plans to evacuate his family to Paris. One month before the German invasion of Holland, which occurred in May 1940, Bernard had a reunion with his old buddy Gerhard Fritze and a group of IG Farben associates. According to one of the attendants, Frank-Fahle, who was arrested after war, Bernhard said to them, as inspector-general of the Dutch military, that he would find it very difficult to lead Dutch troops in battle against the Germans. When the German attack began the Oranges moved to London. Bernhard went back for a few days, suggested to execute a few Dutch collaborators of the Germans (which didn't happen), went to Paris, and back again to London. For some reason, this short trip would make him a legendary hero. In the UK Bernhard wasn't trusted and Ian Flemming, the later James Bond author and a MI6/Naval Intelligence officer, was sent to spy on him. Sefton Delmer (Naval Intelligence; the Beaverbrook employee), Ian Flemming, and Prince Bernhard spent a lot of time together, but it seems that Flemming couldn't find any pro-nazi connections to Bernhard. Flemming later incorporated the character Count Lippe, a low level member of a worldwide secret criminal group (SPECTRE) involved in drug trade and extortion of NATO, in his James Bond movie 'Thunderball'. Some have speculated this character might be a reference to Prince Bernhard, who was born as Count von Lippe-Biesterfeld. Flemming would slowly move out of Bernhard's life. Through Delmer, Bernhard came into contact with Lord Beaverbrook (Aitken family; wanted peace with Hitler, like Hitler himself wanted with the British Empire; close to Hitler and Hess) and became very close with Penelope Aitken (married a nephew of Lord Beaverbrook), who was the mother of Jonathan Aitken, a later MI6 agent and head of Le Cercle. During this time Bernhard (who recruited the son of Lord Beaverbrook in the 1001 Club) also came into contact with mystery man Joseph H. Retinger (raised by Polish nobility; MI6 and likely a Jesuit or SMOM member; later founder of Bilderberg). Anthony Drexel Biddle Jr., US Ambassador to the European governments in exile in London during WWII, a Pilgrims Society member, and a person that informed US intelligence about the Synarchist Movement of Empire in France, became a good friend of Bernhard. Allen Dulles (Cap & Gown; Pilgrims Society; OSS; CIA director; SMOM; nephew of a Jesuit; Paperclip; co-founder US Military-Industrial Complex; Warren Commission), John J. McCloy (Pilgrims Society; Rockefeller guy; chair CFR; released the most important nazis; Warren Commission), McGeorge Bundy (Skull & Bones; Army Intelligence; chair Ford Foundation; 1001 Club), general Walter Bedell Smith (Chief of Staff of SHAEF; CIA director), and general Eisenhower became other close associates and friends of Bernhard during WWII. FDR had always been a good friend of the Oranges. In late 1940, Bernhard started to work as a liaison officer between the newly established Dutch Central Intelligence Agency (CID) and the SIS and SOE. Head of the CID became Francois van 't Sant, the most important agent of the Oranges. Bernhards reputation got another dent when Englandspiel came out in 1943, even though he didn't have a direct role in the affair. During Englandspiel dozens of Dutch intelligence agents, which were flown in from England, were immediately caught by waiting Germans over a period of about a year. Captured agents sent plenty of messages that the operation had been penetrated by the Germans, but the SOE ignored them for some unknown reason. In 1944, after the Allied invasion of Europe, Bernhard flew across the front and asked both the Pope in Italy and Retinger in Poland to try and look out after his family members that were still in Germany. It seemed however that especially his mother could take care of herself with all the contacts she had within IG Farben. In 1944, during the allied siege of the Netherlands, Bernhard became head of the Domestic Forces (BS), which was the coordination center for the Dutch resistance. His headquarters, complete with wine cellar, was located in Hotel Metropole in Brussels and consisted of members of MI6, the SOE, and Dutch resistance. One of his closest friends here was Gerben Sonderman who used to work with SS officer Klaus "Butcher of Lyon" Barbie. Barbie dreamed up Hitler's Final Solution and was responsible for the rape, torture, and murder of thousands of people. At Nuremberg Barbie was released by Pilgrims Society member John J. McCloy and ended up in Bolivia where he became responsible for setting up the local US-allied death squads and the early drug exporting routes to the US via Columbia. After the failed Battle of Arnhem in September 1944, which was part of the larger Operation Market Garden, it turned out that Christiaan "King Kong" Lindemans had given information about this operation to the Germans. Lindemans, a hero of the resistance, worked in Bernhard's office and supposedly was "turned" by the Germans in 1944. This became just another dent in Bernhard's image, just as the fact that he was starting to gather war loot around this time, like expensive BMWs and small airplanes. After the liberation Bernhard's Gestapo" started to become a menace to the Dutch people, so his organization is not allowed to make arrests anymore. Bernhard's II BD intelligence service now started to map all fascist and anti-communist elements within Dutch society. One of his closest associates has the surname Van Houten and is suspected by British Intelligence to have been the same Van Houten on papers King Kong, the spy who informed the Germans about the upcoming Battle of Arnhem, had been carrying during the time of his arrest. Due to a lack of proof the issue is dropped. When the Dutch government is restored again, Bernhard is in favor of increased influence of the Royal House in state affairs. It won't happen. Because of his ambitions Bernhard did became the point man for the Anglo-American globalists from this moment on. Bernhard started to work more with the United States. One of these persons is Henry Luce agent C.D. Jackson (deputy chief of the Psychological Warfare Division of SHAEF; one of the "the Park Avenue Cowboys"; vice president of Time-Life and one of the most trusted aides of Henry Luce; advisor to the President for Psychological Warfare; member Operations Coordinating Board during his time as advisor; president of the National Committee for a Free Europe; co-founder Radio Free Europe and the American Committee for Cultural Freedom; thought the Zapruder film was too shocking to release to the public). Jackson will largely be responsible for setting up the post WWII psywar and US intelligence division in the Netherlands and other parts of Western Europe. In 1945, the Dutch intelligence group BVD was set up and Bernhard catapulted a lot of his friends in it. There is some infighting however between Bernhard's friends and employees who don't want anything to do with him. In 1946 King Kong is about to be investigated by the BVD and Bernhard's friends fear he might release some compromising information about the prince. Subsequently King Kong dies under suspicious circumstances. BVD investigations into Englandspiel are also done only very superficially. After the war, Bernhard made sure a lot of his former nazi buddies were protected from prosecution and helped them back into prominent positions. In 1948, it was discovered that Bernhard was a member of the NSDAP. It is covered up and the press won't report on it until 1976, after the Lockheed Affair. After WWII, Bernhard acted as representative for the Dutch government and multinationals. Doing business with the Fascist regime in Argentine, together with all the fled nazis in that country, wasn't a problem for him. Also worked for the CIA. Commander of the Dutch domestic army 1946-1976. Inspector-General of the Dutch Air Force, Army, and Navy 1946-1976. The Greet Hofmans-Affair from 1948 to 1956 created tensions between the Prince and the Queen. The investigation results are still being withheld, but it is known that Bernhard and the CIA were displeased with Juliana's "communist" tendencies of disarmament of Europe to such an extent that they were preparing to put her into a mental hospital (think stay-behind networks?). Some believe Greet Hofmans actually was some kind of Soviet spy. Bernhard held a speech at the University Club in New York in 1953 where he called for European integration and a common currency. Approached by his friend Joseph Retinger to establish Bilderberg, which was founded in 1954 and sponsored by the CIA. Bilderberg chairman 1954-1976. Bernhard got along very well Paul Henri Spaak, Paul van Zeeland, JFK, Nixon, Ford, the Shah of Iran, and countless other international individuals. He loved to duck hunt with Stavros Niarchos (family of Onassis and also a 1001 Club member). His wife, queen Juliana, invited UFO contactee George Adamski to their home in 1959. First chairman of the WWF in 1961. President of the WWF until his death. Co-founder of the 1001 Club in the early 1970s. Edmund de Rothschild is the godfather of Alexia Grinda, one of his extramarital daughters. Bernhard met the mother, the 18-year old Helene Grinda (of the noble Roussel family), in 1966, at a swimming pool of the Rothschild family. In 1974, Prince Bernhard sold his Castle Warmelo to the Evlyma Trust in Liechtenstein, a subsidiary of Tibor Rosenbaum's (1001 Club; Mossad agent; criminal) BCI. The Trust was managed by 1001 Club member Herbert Batliner. Friends of Bernhard included David Rockefeller, H.J. Heinz, Gianni Agnelli, Henry Ford II, Henry Luce, Tibor Rosenbaum, Robert Vesco, Mobutu, Suharto, Cornelis Verolme, the Loudons of Shell, Ernst van Eeghen, Ernst van den Beugel (KLM), and Freddie Heineken. Accused of taking bribes from Lockheed and likely also Northrop in 1976. Invested in KAS Enterprises, which became a front for the SAS in their struggle against Mandela's ANC. In 1980 the Oranges had a capital of 650 million euros. A conservative estimate shows that this capital has grown to at least 1,4 billion euros today. Most of this capital is invested in real estate and shares in corporations like Shell.
Livanos, Georges A Greek who mainly lived in Lausanne, Switzerland. His father, Stavros Livanos, was a great figure in Greek shipowning circles. During the Second World War, Georges Livanos served in the American army in Japan. In 1949, he founded his own company, Ceres Hellenic Shipping. Shortly after, he inherited his father's fleet of 30 ships, including the world's five largest supertankers. Eugenia, Georges Livanos sister, married a competitor, Stavros Niarchos, and her sister Tina married Aristotle Onassis. After Eugenia's death, Tina divorced and remarried Stavros Niarchos, Aristotle Onassis' lifelong rival. With over 100 ships, Georges' fleet was the largest merchant navy in Greece. He also created a shipping company between the Greek Isles and was involved in the protection of ocean and coastal waters. In 1994, his fortune was an estimated 3 billion dollars. The Greek shipowner then diversified his activity and invested in real estate, as well as in the banking industry with Basil Goulandris, another Greek shipowner also based in Lausanne. Georges Livanos passed away in 1997, leaving his business to his son, Peter Livanos.
Loudon, John H. Chairman Shell Oil 1951-1965. Co-founder Bilderberg in 1954. Director N.M. Rothschild & Sons Ltd. Successor of Prince Bernhard in the WWF presidency 1966-1981. Berhard considered him a good friend. Knighted by both the British and Dutch royal families. Member Atlantic Institute for International Affairs and the 1001 Club.
Ludwig, Daniel K. Set up National Bulk Carriers, which became the largest shipping company in the US. His shipyards pioneered the use of welding rather than riveting the hulls of ships, thereby saving valuable time during World War II when demand for ships soared. He transported oil and molasses around the world. He set up the Jari project, which was an attempt to create a tropical tree farm in Brazil for producing pulp for paper. Later helped Meyer Lansky, chief of the Jewish maffia in New York, to set up his drug money laundering empire in Bahamas. Ludwig is one of the richest private citizens in the world and has been a visitor to the Bohemian Grove.
Luyt, Louis Louis Luyt was born in 1932, and grew up in modest circumstances in the Karoo. In the 1940s Luyt was employed as a railway clerk. During his rugby career in the 1950s, he captained the Orange Free State province. By the end of the 1960s Luyt had become a millionaire. In 1989 he took over the Presidency of the Transvaal Rugby union and shortly afterwards was elected President of the South African Rugby football Union (SARFU). It was during this period that he came under attack for his administration style and efforts to transform the sport into a professional one. He was accused of nepotism, bullying tactics, and administering autocratically. In 1992 Luyt clashed with the African National Congress when he chose to play only the Afrikaans section of the national anthem at the Springbok’s rugby test match against the All Blacks at Ellis Park stadium. Luyt became infamous for his role in the court case involving President Nelson Mandela. He was a hostile witness in the commission of inquiry into SARFU affairs. Gradually people distanced themselves from him, including his former son-in-law Rian Oberholzer, the then Managing Director of SARFU. This moved resulted in Luyt’s sacking as President of SARFU in May 1998. Luyt then ventured into politics with the Federal Alliance Party (FA), which he financed personally. His stated purpose in forming the FA was to protect the rights and integrity of Afrikaners. The FA took part in South Africa’s first democratic election in 1999 but won no seats, dissolving soon thereafter. As an entrepreneur, Luyt was prominent in the establishment of the Triomf fertilizer empire, and that of the Citizen newspaper, which was embroiled in the info scandal of the late 1970s, which prompted the resignation of the Minister of Information Connie Mulder, and indirectly to the retirement of Vorster from the Premiership. Luyt is married to Adri and they live in the north of Durban.
Magnin, Cyril A third generation San Franciscan born in 1899, Cyril Magnin's life was characterized by an unflagging commitment to the business, civic and cultural vitality of San Francisco. Mr. Magnin served as President of Joseph Magnin, Co., a clothing company that helped modern American women dress in the stylish designs of the day. As President of the Port of San Francisco, which then belonged to the state of California, Mr. Magnin lobbied tirelessly and ultimately succeeded in transferring the valuable Port property to the city of San Francisco. He was also responsible for creating the role of San Francisco's "Chief of Protocol". Also a champion of the arts, Cyril Magnin worked with Mayor Joseph Alioto (president of the San Francisco National Bank) to convince Avery Brundage to donate his incomparable Asian art collection to San Francisco's Asian Art Museum. He brought the A.C.T. to San Francisco, nurtured Beach Blanket Babylon, and also provided input and guidance to the California Culinary Academy. Not one to remain behind the scenes indefinitely, Mr. Magnin played the part of the Pope in the 1978 movie "Foul Play" with Chevy Chase and Goldie Hawn. Mr. Magnin is also remembered fondly for his role in a commercial which ran on television for many years. His speaking part read, "I've had an 80 year love affair with San Francisco . . . My name is Cyril Magnin and this is my dog, Tippy."

McNamara, Robert Strange Born on June 9, 1916 in San Francisco. McNamara graduated in 1937 from the University of California at Berkeley and went on to earn a graduate degree from the Harvard Business School, where from 1940 to 1943 he taught as an assistant professor. Poor eyesight kept him out of combat during World War II, but he served in the Air Force's Statistical Control Office, focusing, as he had done at Harvard, on ways to improve efficiency and productivity. After the war he brought his management skills to the ailing Ford Motor Company and became one of the "Whiz Kids" credited with the company's revival. In 1960 he became the first person outside the Ford family to rise to the position of president of the company. The same year, McNamara accepted President-elect John Kennedy's offer to become secretary of defense. McNamara set out to reorganize and streamline the nation's defense force and its bureaucracy. He was central to the Kennedy administration's drive to change U.S. military strategy from its Eisenhower-era reliance on nuclear "massive retaliation" to one of "flexible response," including a range of conventional options. McNamara emphasized cost control, the phasing out of what he believed to be obsolete weapons systems, and greater overall efficiency. While arguing that there was no essential difference between large organizations such as Ford and the Pentagon, and even though he did gain considerable control over the defense establishment, McNamara also had to deal with resistance from a variety of powerful, entrenched traditionalists in the various services, to say nothing of Capitol Hill. Trusted by Kennedy, McNamara became very influential in the administration. He was an important member of Kennedy's circle of advisers during the 1962 Cuban Missile Crisis. He was also a central figure in the evolution of the nation's nuclear strategy from "massive retaliation" to a more limited "counterforce" doctrine to "mutually assured destruction," seeking international strategic stability. During the Vietnam War, McNamara initially was a great believer in victory and was convinced the United States could win thanks to its technological superiority. But by 1966 McNamara became disillusioned with the war and offered his resignation to President Johnson in 1967. In 1968, he became president of the World Bank. During the 1980s he became a critic of the nuclear arms race and a proponent of a policy of "no first use." McNamara recently published a memoir on Vietnam, admitting that he had been tragically misguided in his view and conduct of the war. Due to the McCarthy hysteria all the nuanced, clear thinkers at the State Department had been purged. McNamara has been a member of Bilderberg, the Atlantic Council of the United States, the Council on Foreign Relations, and the Trilateral Commission. He was a primary sponsor of the United Nations affiliated (New Age) Lucis Trust together with Greenpeace (1001 Club), the Rockefeller Foundation (undoutedly represented at the 1001 Club; Pilgrims) and Thomas Watson of IBM (1001 Club; Pilgrims). It used to be called the 'Lucifer's Trust' and was inspired by Alice Bailey (who, in line with Moses, Mohammed, Joseph Smith, Crowley, etc., received her info in trance through some kind of spiritual being). Together with Sadruddin Aga Khan (1001 Club) identified as a member of the Administrative Board of the International Pugwash Foundation in Geneva in 1995 (official Pugwash history).
McTaggart, David Fraser McTaggart was born in Vancouver, British Columbia, in 1932 (died in 2001). David McTaggart was among the chief contributors to the creation of the environmentalist group Greenpeace in 1971 and became it's chief spokesman. From 1972 and on he did everything he could to stop the French from conducting nuclear tests. McTaggart was chairman of Greenpeace International from 1979 until 1991. The Canadian businessman had become involved with the issue of French atmospheric nuclear weapons testing in New Zealand in 1971, and his life was tied to environmental issues from then on. Between 1975 and 1991, McTaggart was a driving force behind Greenpeace campaigns to save the whales, stop the dumping of nuclear waste in the ocean, block the production of toxic wastes, end nuclear testing, and protect the Antarctic continent from oil and mineral exploitation. Over the length of his career he published numerous articles and two books. Awards for his contributions to environmentalism world-wide include the Onassis Award, The Kreisky Prize, and the United Nations Environmental Programme's Global 500 Award. In September of 1991, McTaggart retired from active chairmanship of Greenpeace International to a farm in Italy, where he raised organic olive oil and continued to work on whaling and other issues through his own foundation. Mr. McTaggart died in an auto accident on March 23, 2001 near his home in Italy.

Niarchos, Stavros Once he had received his doctorate in law, he worked for his uncle who was a shipowner. At the age of 25, Stavros Niarchos became independent and frequented the prestigious royal yacht club. He was a naval officer in the Second World War, during which time part of the trade fleet he had built with his uncle was destroyed. Nearly 2 million dollars in insurance money helped him to buy another fleet. In 1952, the same year as his rival Aristotle Onassis, Stavros Niarchos built the first supertankers capable of transporting enormous quantities of oil and fuel. In 1956, the Suez Canal Crisis considerably increased the demand for the type of large tonnage ships that Niarchos owned. Business flourished and he became a billionaire, just like his rival, Aristotle Onassis. The shipowners' rivalry continued into their private lives. After his divorce from Henry Ford's daughter, Stavros Niarchos married Georges Livanos' sister, Eugenia. When she passed away, he married her sister Tina Onassis, who was also Aristotle's ex wife. At the head of a 4 billion dollar fortune, the rich shipowner prided himself on having married five times in the course of his life. After the oil crisis of 1973, Stavros Niarchos sold off some of his companies and launched into finances and the diamond trade. In the eighties, he came more and more often to Geneva, from where he managed his business around the globe. The Golden Greek, as his fellow countrymen liked to call him, retired in the nineties to his main residence in Saint-Moritz, in the Graubunden, where he devoted a lot of time to his favorite sport, skiing.

Pahlavi, Mohammad Reza Shah Better known as the Shah of Iran from 1941 to 1979. Born in 1919. Attended Institut Le Rosey, a Swiss boarding school where many kings are send, and the Military College in Tehran. Followed up his father as emperor of Iran in 1941 after a joined USSR-British invasion (officially Iran was neutral). The British were of the opinion that the son would be more open to western free market influences, which turned out to be right. In 1953, the Shah supported Operation Ajax, the coup that overthrew prime minister Mohammed Mossadegh. The Brits didn't appreciate Mossadegh's succesful effort to nationalize the Iranian oil industry. Allen Dulles (Pilgrims; SMOM; DCI), John Foster Dulles (Pilgrims), and Kermit Roosevelt Jr. (Le Cercle) were key plotters of this coup. Created his secret police, the SAVAK, in 1957 with the assistance of the CIA and the Israeli Mossad. Dissidents were jailed, tortured, murdered, and-or assassinated. Member of the Safari Club, which was set up by the Kermit Roosevelt and Alexandre de Marenches, and a member of the 1001 Club. The Shah has always been good friends with western leaders, kings, and queens. Eventually he was ousted in 1979 and Ayatollah Khomeini came to power for the next 10 years.

Reksten, Hilmar Hilmar Reksten, the biggest ship owner in the world, was an owner of both P&O, Zapata Naess and most likely, Burmah Oil. Most of his fortune escaped taxation during the post-war period, mostly because of help from the Norwegian Labor Government. Eventually he went bankrupt.
Rosenbaum, Tibor Imgas A Hungarian Jew who worked with Raoul Wallenberg (of the Bilderberg family) during WWII to keep Hungarian Jews out of the concentration camps.

Head of the Jewish Agency, an organization which supported Jews who were interested in migrating to Israel. Ran the Israel Corporation with Edmond de Rothschild (once chairman), a fundraising institution which gathered funds for land purchases in Palestine. The Mossad and the Israeli Labour Party (headed by David Ben-Gurion, a close friend of the Rothschilds) sent funds to Rosenbaum so they were able to invest anonymously in Europe and the United States. Rosenbaum secretly speculated with a large part of these funds. In 1958 he set up the Swiss Banque du Credit International (BCI) with the help of Edmond de Rothschild. Rosenbaum and his BCI directors laundered illegal drug and gambling money from mafia boss Meyer Lansky by investing it in real estate. Through the BCI Mossad and Permindex operations were financed. In the early 1960s, the BCI bought a significant stake in Henry Luce's Time Life. Permindex has been the main suspect of having coordinated the 1963 JFK murder. Edmond de Rothschild introduced Rosenbaum to Bernhard in the mid-1960s. In 1970 Bernhard invited Rosenbaum into the 1001 Club, but after Rosenbaum got in trouble for having embezzled money of the BCI, Bernhard had to expel him again. This happened in 1973-1974. In 1974, Prince Bernhard sold his Castle Warmelo to the Evlyma Trust in Liechtenstein, a subsidiary of Tibor Rosenbaum's BCI. The Trust was managed by 1001 Club member Herbert Batliner, a person later linked to laudering funds for Marcos, Mobutu, Escobar, and Helmut Kohl. The BCI was closed down and for a short time Tibor went to jail. The rest of his life he tried to pay his debts. In 1980 he died of a heart attack.

Scott, Sir Peter Knight of the British Empire (deceased), WWF-UK president since its foundation in 1961, president of Survival Service Commission in the The World Conservation Union (IUCN) since 1963, founder of Wildfowl Trust in Slimbridge, Gloucetershire in 1964. Sir Peter Markham Scott (September 14, 1909 - August 29, 1989), ornithologist, conservationist and painter, was born in London, the only child of Antarctic explorer Sir Robert Falcon Scott. He is a half-brother of Wayland Young (Lord Kennet). He was educated at Oundle School and Cambridge University, graduating from Trinity College in 1931. He inherited his artistic talent from his mother, Kathleen, and had his first exhibition in London in 1933. In 1936, he represented the United Kingdom at sailing in the Olympic Games. During World War II, Scott served in the navy, emulating his father. He was in the "little ships" against German E-boats. He stood as a Conservative candidate unsuccessfully in the 1945 general election in Wembley, North. In 1948, he founded the organisation with which he was ever afterwards closely associated, the Severn Wildfowl Trust (now the Wildfowl and Wetlands Trust) with its headquarters at Slimbridge in Gloucestershire. In the years that followed, he led several ornithological expeditions worldwide, and became a television personality, popularizing the study of wildfowl and wetlands. He wrote and illustrated several books on the subject, including his autobiography, The Eye of the Wind (1961). Scott was also an accomplished sailor winning an Olympic Bronze medal for single-handed dinghy sailing and numerous other sailing championships. He also skippered the 12 metre yacht Sovereign in 1964 challenge for the America's Cup which was held by USA. Sovereign suffered a whitewash 4-0 defeat in a very one-sided competition where the American boat was seen to be the faster design. From 1973-1983 Sir Peter Scott was Chancellor of the University of Birmingham. He also founded the World Wildlife Fund and designed its panda logo. He is also remembered for giving the scientific name of Nessiteras rhombopteryx to the Loch Ness Monster so that it could be registered as an endangered species. The name, based on Greek, means "the wonder of Ness with the diamond shaped fin" but is also an anagram of "Monster hoax by Sir Peter S".
Sese Seko, Mobuto Born in Lisala, Belgian Congo (now The Democratic Republic of Congo.) After an education under the tutelage of Belgian friars Mobuto chose a military career and eventually rose to become commander in the Belgian army at the age of 30 with the rank of colonel. In 1958 he joined Patrice Lumumba's Congolese National Movement Party, and thus found himself close to the the centre of power when Lumumba was made Prime Minister, following independence two years later. He took advantage of this during the ensuing power struggle with the province of Katanga, stepping into the Prime Minister's shoes following temporarily when Lumumba was killed. The rule was short, however as Mobuto handed power back to the civilian government within six months. He was not so generous a few years later. He put a stop to the civil war that gripped the country between 1963 and 1965 and once again took control of the state machinery, this time for good. The Congo has the potential to be perhaps Africa's richest nation and it achieved impressive levels (6-7% every year) of growth following independence and during the first few years of Mobuto's rule. This changed however after 1973. Between 1971 and 1973 Mobuto embarked on a program of Zairereanisation. The country's name was changed to Zaire; in came a new national anthem and flag; he demanded his countrymen and women call each other citoyen & citoyenne; abandon European names and wear a jacket of his own design called the abacost. But perhaps most significant was the economic impact of Zaireanisation. In a move out of character for someone supposedly a bulwark against communism, Mobuto nationalized not only the entire foreign owned industrial sector of the economy but also grabbed small businesses from the hands of Greek, Portuguese and Pakistani expats and handed them to 'sons of the country.' Mobuto remained in power until 1997, when he was forced to leave by an invading army from Rwanda under the command of future president Laurent Kabila. Herbert Batliner from Lichtenstein is said to have been laundering money for Mobutu at the time he presided over Zaire. Besides being a senior lawyer and fund manager who managed over 10,000 letterbox companies, Batliner is today's (2005) president of Pontificia Accademia delle Scienze Sociali located in Vatican City.

Here, he (supposedly) first met David Rockefeller and learned that the UN's funds were handled by Rockefeller's Chase Bank. He also met the other Rockefeller brothers and other influential people as well. Although Strong kept his UN job only two months, he met very influential people through Noah Monod. According to the National Council for Science and the Environment: "He [Maurice] first worked with the United Nations as a junior officer in 1947, when he was just eighteen, and returned in 1970 to lead the Conference on the Human Environment in Geneva, after which he became the executive director of the UN's environmental program..." Strong returned to Winnipeg, failed to qualify for the Royal Canadian Air Force, and took a job as trainee analyst for James Richardson & Sons in 1948. By 1951, he had taken a job with Dome Petroleum, on whose board of directors was Henrie Brunie, a close friend of John J. McCloy (and a later friend of Strong). Dome became one of the largest oil companies in Canada but its shareholders resided on Wall Street. In 1951 Strong married, and in 1952, abruptly sold his home, quit his job and took a world cruise. He wound up in Nairobi and took a job with CalTex 1953-1954, a company formed to exploit Saudi oil. His job involved travel to exotic parts of the world for two years. Strong visited his distant cousin, Robbins Strong, in Geneva, who was the Secretary of the Extension and Intermovement Aid Division of the international YMCA. He met Leonard Hentsch whose Swiss bank handled the money of the YMCA. Strong wanted to become an international ambassador for the YMCA, but settled for a position on the International Committee of the U.S.A. and Canada which raised funds for the YMCA. From 1958 to 1961, he formed M. F. Strong Management Ltd., Calgary and assumed the management of Ajax Petroleums Ltd., which he reorganized to form Canadian Industrial Gas and Oil Ltd. At that time, it was one of the largest Canadian independent energy companies (now Norcen). He elevated his role in the international YMCA and Canada's Liberal Party. Executive vice-president of Power Corporation 1961-1963. Chairman committee extension and inter movement aid World Alliance YMCA's 1963-1965. President of the Power Corporation of Canada 1963-1966.

In 1981, as head of AZL, he was sued for allegedly hyping the stock ahead of a merger that eventually failed. He settled for $4.2 million at the insistence of his insurance company. February 7, 1997, The Standing Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs, the words of Senator Jack Austin, President of Canada-China Business Council: "The Canada-China Business Council was organized in 1978, at the very beginning of the Deng Xiaoping economic reform period. It was organized by a group of leaders, Paul Desmarais [Sr.], Maurice Strong, Paul Lin, and one or two others, to begin the development of a commercial relationship with China." May 15, 2005, Pittsburgh Live: "A near-compulsive talker, one item about which Strong is almost taciturn is his relations with China's elite. Strong does not mention his late cousin Anna Louise Strong. The Marxist journalist was a member of the Comintern and spent two years with Chairman Mao. Her funeral in 1970 was organized personally by Chou En-lai, China's prime minister. Some claim that Strong arranged the Nixon-Kissinger initial meetings with the Chinese. However, Strong makes full use of Cousin Anna's memories among Beijing's elite and has had excellent relationships with the Chinese for 30 years." Maurice bought the Colorado Land & Cattle Company and its accompanying 200,000 acres of San Luis Valley in Colorado in 1978 (now owned by the Conservation Fund). This land sits on multiple huge underground water streams. Strong & Co. created American Water Development Inc. in 1986 to pump up this water. After the locals started protesting, saying the valley would be turned into a desert, Strong decided to save his reputation as environmentalist and bailed out. The ranch belonged to Saudi arms dealer Adnan Khashoggi, a man who's career was started by the Bin Ladens and who strong connections to British intelligence. Supposedly, in 1978, a mystic informed Hanne and Maurice Strong that "the Baca would become the center for a new planetary order which would evolve from the economic collapse and environmental catastrophes that would sweep the globe in the years to come." Hanne and Maurice Strong created the Manitou Foundation in 1988, a New Age institute on or near the Baca Ranch. On the website it reads: "In the mid 1990’s, Manitou and specialists of The Conservation Fund, with generous support of Laurance Rockefeller [the late UFO/Crop Circle investigations funder] and the Jackson Hole Preserve, devoted several years to extensive studies of Manitou’s mountain properties, culminating in the creation of the Manitou Habitat Conservation Plan (MHCP)." At the ranch there are representatives of many of the world's religions, spiritual movements, and New Age sects, including the Catholic and Protestant churches, Buddhist monks, and representatives of different variations on Hinduism. A circular temple has been built on the ranch where the missionaries of different religions can contemplate with each other. If you look at the floor plan you'll see the building is a complex flower (the representatives sit in circles within this flower) within a Celtic Cross/Hindu Kiakra. The latter two represent a divine sexual union. The building seems to be a Rosy Cross, which can be interpreted as having the same meaning. In that last case, the color of the rose would correspond with the nearby mountain range: Sangre de Cristo, meaning 'Blood of Christ', the sacred name the Spanish settlers decided to reserve for it. Nicholas de Vere, former head of the British Dragon Court, wrote: "The Rose represents... the magical menstrual flow of Solomon's beloved." George Hunt, who visited the place, asked to a Catholic priest there, father Victor, what the purpose of the temple is: "We contemplate on the sexual union of the church with God... that's our mission, because we're fulfilling a role that the pope wants us to fulfill. I don't know, we're just contemplating on the sexual union of the church with God." The San Luis Valley is an amazing place. Twelve different Indian tribes used the Valley as a sacred hunting and vision-quest area. Some of these tribes have legends about the 'Sipapu', or 'place of reemergence', near the lakes area. They believe that their ancestors were led underground to safety at this location by the 'Ant People', just before a cleansing period of the earth started. According to the Navajo tradition, they were warned of the upcoming cataclysms by 'sky katchinas' (sky spirits). They also claimed that the 'star people' enter our reality at the sacred Blanca Massif in the Valley. The San Luis Valley happens to be a place with enormous UFO activity (even before the modern UFO era started in June 1947). During peak UFO waves in the late 1960s dozens of cars would literally line the roads watching the amazing aerial displays of unknown lights as they cavorted around in the sky above the Great Sand Dunes/Dry Lakes area. In 1967 the first case of a typical cattle mutilation was reported in this valley (Sept. 9, a horse called Snippy. Reported by the AP and Washington Post in early October). The phenomenon would become epidemic in the early to mid 1970s. Maurice Strong introduced Edmund de Rothschild on the Fourth World Wilderness Conference in September 1987, held in Denver and southern Colorado: "One of the most important initiatives that is open here for your consideration is that of the Conservation Banking Program. As mentioned this morning, we have [inaudible] here the person who really is the source of this very significant concept. He was/is one of the trustees of the International Wilderness Foundation which sponsored this meeting. He was at the first of these conferences. His conversion to the relationship between conservation and economic development has been a pioneering one... Many of the energy developments that we have seen have come from his early anticipation of our energy needs... And I'm just delighted to have this opportunity of introducing to you, Edmund de Rothschild." Edmund (Pilgrims Society) thanks "Maurice" and gives a speech about Global Warming and what to do about the melting polar caps, the stuff we are all familiar with today. David Rockefeller (Pilgrims Society), James Baker (Pilgrims Society), and Michael Sweatman (Royal Bank of Canada; president World Conservation Bank; close associate of Edmund de Rothschild) also gave speeches. The charge for attending the multi-day conference was $650 and was visited by about 1500 businessmen. George Hunt, who attended the conference, was warned (indirectly) by David Rockefeller not to distribute any rebukes of what was said or "he would regret it". Maurice was chairman of the International Energy Development Corporation 1980-1983. Chairman of the Canada Development Investment Corporation and the Canadian government holding company for state enterprises 1981-1984.

Ruud Lubbers (Dutch Prime Minister 1982-1994) and Mikhail Gorbachev (president of the USSR until 1991; established the Green Cross, among its directors Shimon Peres) were among those who helped in its creation. In 1994, these people, Maurice Strong, Mikhail Gorbachev, and Ruud Lubbers joined together again to launch a civil society Earth Charter initiative. Considered a chief architect of the Kyoto Accord of 1997, because the regulations to stabilize greenhouse gas concentrations started with the Framework Convention on Climate Change at the Earth Summit in Rio of 1992, headed by Maurice Strong. An international Earth Charter Commission was formed in 1997 (with Maurice Strong, Steven C. Rockefeller (second son of Nelson Rockefeller), and Mikhael Gorbachev among the handful of commissioners), and an Earth Charter secretariat was established in Costa Rica, where today it is affiliated with the UN University for Peace. In 2000, the Earth Charter was formally launched at the Peace Palace (once built by Andrew Carnegie) in The Hague in the presence of Queen Beatrix. The mission of the Earth Charter Initiative is, "To establish a sound ethical foundation for the emerging global society and to help build a sustainable world based on respect for nature, universal human rights, economic justice and a culture of peace." Chairman of the World Resources Institute 1995-1998. The earlier mentioned Pittsburgh Live article also states that Maurice Strong is very good friends with Kofi Annan (UN head; advised by Strong), Malloch Brown (works for Annan), Al Gore (former US vice president; intermarried with the Schiff family; presidential campaign sponsored with $100,000 from Strong), Tongsun Park (Koreagate; long history of bribing/blackmailing government officials; indicted in the Oil-For-Food scandal), Louise Frechette (UN deputy secretary-general; accused of having ordered the shredding of incriminating Oil-For-Food documents; actually an investigator of the Oil-For-Food scandal; has spoken to the Pilgrims Society), and James Wolfensohn (used to sit on the Rockefeller Foundation board; former business partner of Lord Jacob Rothschild; former president of the World Bank; the head of J.

Thurn und Taxis, Prince Johannes von Thurn comes from the Torriani or Della Torre family what was one the ruling families in northern-Italy in the 13th-15th century. They were struggling for power with the Guelphs, the Ghibellines, the Visconti, etc. Very few princely families have been able to play such an important role in Europe without ever appearing as actors in the main stage of history. The dynasty of the Princes of Thurn und Taxis is such a family. The family's fortunes prospered along those of the imperial court at Vienna (Habsburg dynasty). For more than 300 years (15th-18th century), the Thurn und Taxis held the monopoly over imperial communications and post between Vienna and the far flung Habsburg possessions that formed the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation. It was Napoleon Bonaparte who first attacked the Thurn und Taxis monopoly (from about 1795). The loss of the mail monopoly did little to affect the power of the Thurn und Taxis for by then, the family had diversified into a myriad other enterprises from foodstuffs to banking to railroads. Their wealth was vast and very few other European families could match it. In the 19th century the intermarried with different European royal families, including Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. In later times, Prince Albert of Thurn und Taxis was deeply opposed to the advent of Adolph Hitler. The family lost two members in the war, together with a large part of their fortunes. A lot of it was located behind the iron curtain. Johannes started to rebuild the empire in 1952 and by 1990, when he died, he had done this for the most part. Unfortunately, he died unexpectedly, which brought a lot of chaos to the family's fortune. Gloria, his wife (38 years younger) with whom he partied during the 1980s, had been selling a lot of the holdings in the 1990s. Today she raises her sons and they hope to rebuild their vast fortune once again. The Palace of Thurn and Taxis in Bavaria is still in use today and it contains more rooms than Buckingham Palace. Gloria is involved with ecological business. The assets of the family are managed through the Thurn und Taxis Group.

In 1990, Joseph Brewda wrote something very interesting for EIR: "On Oct. 15, 1982, a month after the 1982 massacres, Sharon held meetings—in the Chouf Mountains of Lebanon and at his Negev ranch—with Falange leader Camille Chamoun, Uri Dan, Rupert Murdoch, Charles Douglas-Home, and others, to move the "Landscam" West Bank real estate grab forward. On Nov. 15, 1982, a final meeting took place on several real estate purchases, mostly through Arab middle-men, to push the massive expansion of Jewish settlements throughout the West Bank—at a handsome profit. Attending the meeting at Sharon's ranch were: Kissinger, Lord Harlech (Sir David Ormsby-Gore), Prince Johannes von Thurn und Taxis, Tory Parliamentarian Julian Amery, Sir Edmund Peck, and MI6 Mideast mandarin Nicholas Elliot." I could be wrong, but I never heard EIR, Joseph Brewda, or pretty much anyone else talk in any detail about Le Cercle. In the meantime I found out that Julian Amery was the chairman of this secret intelligence group and Nicholas Elliot was another important member. Amery's father was a hugely important Zionist. Look at the article about Le Cercle for all the details. Of course it's no surprize that Kissinger is said to have been a member too. By the way, last year the prince's favorite fashion designer, Rudolph Moshammer, was found dead in a suburb of Munich with a phone cord tied around his neck. This person was also a favorite fashion designer of Arnold Schwarzenegger and King Carl Gustaf of Sweden. Maybe it's nothing, but I come across a lot of strange deaths investigating this circuit. Member of the 1001 Club.

Thyssen-Bornemisza, Baron Heinrich von Baron Hans Heinrich von Thyssen-Bornemisza (1921-2002), a noted art collector, was a Dutch-born Swiss citizen with a Hungarian title, a legal resident of Monaco for tax purposes, with a declared second residency in the United Kingdom, but in actuality a long-time resident of Spain. His fifth and last wife is a former Miss Spain. He was born in Den Haag, the son of Heinrich Thyssen (1875-1947) and his first wife, Baroness Margit Bornemisza (1887-1971). The Thyssen family's fortune was built upon a steel and armaments empire. Heinrich Thyssen had abandoned Germany as a young man and settled in Hungary in 1905. He married firstly, 1946, Austrian aristocrat Princess Teresa Amalia Franziska Elisabeth Maria zur Lippe-Weissenfeld (born 1925). Their only child was Georg Heinrich (born 1950). They divorced in 1954, and she married in 1960, as her second husband, Friedrich Maximilian, prince zu Furstenberg. He married secondly, in 1954, Anglo-Indian fashion model Nina Dyer (1930-1965); they had no children and were divorced in 1956. She later married and divorced His Highness Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan (a 1001 Club family) and committed suicide in 1965. He married thirdly, September 17, 1956, New Zealand-born British fashion model Fiona Frances Elaine Campbell-Walter (born 1932). She was a daughter of Rear-Admiral Keith McNeil Walter (later Campbell-Walter) and his wife, Frances Henriette Campbell. Their children were Francesca (born 1958 and now married to Archduke Karl of Austria, heir to the defunct Austrian imperial throne) and Lorne (born 1963). They divorced January 20, 1965, and she went on to have a well-publicized relationship with Greek shipping heir Alexander Onassis, the only son of Aristotle Onassis. He married 2 more times. Today his empire has merged that of the Krupp family, forming ThyssenKrupp AG, which has about 190.000 employees worldwide and annual sales of about 40 billion euros (2004). Member of the 1001 Club.
Tikkoo, Ravi Indian born billionaire, renowned in the shipping world as the man who pioneered the use of big bulk-carrying ships to transport commodities such as oil. Nowadays he is in semi-retirement in London but still harbours the notion of resurrecting his plan to construct a giant cruise liner.
Vesco, Robert A banker and CIA agent who financially supported Nixon. Good friend and business partner of Prince Bernhard, whom he met in the late 1960s. The undisputed king of the fugitive financiers. Kicked out of the 1001 Club in 1973 after he became a wanted man for illegal drug and arms trade. Vesco fled to Costa Rica in 1973 in order to avoid standing trial for the alleged theft of $224 million from the Swiss-based mutual fund, Investors Overseas Services (of Meyer Lansky - Some say the Rothschild family was involved). Shortly before Vesco left, he delivered $200,000 in illegal campaign contributions to Richard Nixon's re-election campaign. The money was stuffed in a suitcase and handed over to campaign treasurer Maurice Stans, who ended up paying a $5,000 fine for "non-willful violation" of campaign-finance law. Vesco was indicted in absentia. He was indicted yet again in 1989 on drug smuggling charges. From Costa Rica, Vesco hopscotched to the Bahamas, Antigua (where he tried unsuccessfully to buy a nearby island called Barbuda and establish it as a sovereign state), Nicaragua and, finally, Cuba, where he has lived for the past two decades and, since 1995, been domiciled in a Cuban jail. Vesco was convicted in connection with an alleged scheme to defraud Cuba's pharmaceutical industry. Also arrested by the Cubans was Vesco's partner and houseguest, Donald Nixon, nephew to the former president. Nixon was allowed to return to the U.S., but Vesco went to the slammer. He gets out in 2009, when he'll be 74. Vesco's Cuban wife Lidia was convicted on lesser charges and should be out by this time.
Vestey, Edmund Vestey's grandfather set up Union Cold Storage in Liverpool in 1897 with the simple idea of meat for the working class. Today, Edmund controls a meat empire and has personal fortune of about 700 million pounds sterling. Edmund and his brother William also founded Vestey Brothers, Union Cold Storage Co Ltd and Blue Star Line shipping. His family owns ranches in England, Scotland, South-America and Australia. Edmund owns 17000 acres in Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex. He is also a vice-president of the Essex Scouts and vice-chairman of the East Anglia Border Terrier Club. East Anglian Daily Times 19.11.02: "EDMUND Vestey, one of East Anglia's biggest supporters of foxhunting, has given the Conservative Party a donation of 6,050 [pounds], figures published by the Electoral Commission revealed yesterday. The Commission's internet site indicated that Mr Vestey, of Vestey Hall, Thurlow, near Haverhill, a former master of the Thurlow Hounds, paid his donation directly to Conservative Central Office..." Vestey was a Lord Prior of the Order of St John of Jerusalem and a his meat company belonged to the Livery Companies of the City of London.
Wasserman, Lew Generous contributor to Jewish and Catholic causes. Donated so much to Catholic charities that Pope John Paul II asked to meet him in 1987. Awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1995. Chairman and chief executive of the Music Corporation of America (MCA). The most influential player in the Hollywood movie business up until the eighties. From that time on, Time Warner and News Corp. became serious competitors. In the 1960s, Lew demonstrated the political influence Hollywood could wield by organizing huge fundraising campaigns, particularly for the Democratic Party. In 1990 MCA was sold to Matsushita, which sold MCA again to Bronfman controlled Seagram in 1995. Edgar Bronfman Jr. became the new president of MCA and renamed it to Universal Studios. Lew only remained a media consultant to Universal Studios. In the past Lew has been described as the godfather or even the god of Hollywood. Stories circulated of executives who fainted or vomited in the midst of Wasserman tirades.
Watson, Thomas J., Jr. Eldest son of Thomas J. Watson, the founder of IBM, known to have struggled throughout his life with depression, earned a business degree from Brown University in 1937, and worked a few years as an IBM salesman. In May of 1956 Watson Jr. was named CEO of the company. Only six weeks later his father died. Thomas Jr. took the single biggest risk in IBM's history when he decided to make all of its previous computer software (and hardware, for that matter) obsolete, by developing a uniform range of new IBM mainframe computers. The new machines were compatible within the range—i.e., they could run the same software and use the same peripherals—but incompatible with the former mainframes. The new series, called the System/360, almost completely bankrupted the entire company; its highly successful launch in 1964 was called by Fortune magazine "IBM's $5 Billion Gamble". That same year, because of this success, Dwight D. Eisenhower at the New York World's Fair awarded Thomas J. Watson Jr. the Medal of Freedom, the highest award a U.S. President can bestow on a civilian. Watson was CEO of IBM from 1956 to 1971 and became a US ambassador to the Soviet Union 1979-1981. He also was a trustee of the China Institute and was called by Fortune Magazine “the most successful capitalist who ever lived” (1976) He was a member of the Pilgrims Society, Bohemian Grove camp Mandalay, and the Council on Foreign Relations. Once of the primary sponsors of the Lucis Trust.
Whyte, Tom Chairman of the failed "fringe" bank Triumph Investment Trust, back in the seventies.
Werner, Charles A. Graduated from the University of Chicago in 1942. Internist and radiologist. After serving in WWII, Werner was a researcher at the National Institutes of Health and a professor at Cornell. He was a fellow of the American College of Physicians and of the Explorers Club. He was also a member of the 1001 Trust of the World Wildlife Association. Died November 20, 1999, at age 77 in Huntington, NY.
Windsor, Prince Charles Became Duke of Cornwall, Duke of Rothesay, Earl of Carrick, Baron Renfrew, Lord of the Isles and Great Steward of Scotland and Knight of the Garter when Elizabeth II ascended to the thrown. Studied in part under Kurt Hahn. Invested as Prince of Wales in 1969. Assumed a seat in the House of Lords in 1970. Married Lady Diana Frances Spencer in 1981 and divorced in 1996. Diana died in a car crash in 1997. Married Camilla Parker Bowles in 2005, heir to the British Throne. Unlike his father, he is opposed to genetech.
(Windsor) Mountbatten, Prince Philip Born in 1921 on the Isle of Corfu, Greece. Parents were evacuated from Greece after a revolution and both became depressed (father) or mentally instable (mother). Studied in Germany under Kurt Hahn and both came to Scotland in 1933. Played polo in his youth, often against Sir Evelyn de Rothschild. Philip is the Duke of Edinburgh, a Knight of the Order of the Garter, a Knight of the Order of the Thistle, Grand Master and First or Principal Knight of the Order of the British Empire, and was a prince of Greece and Denmark until he married. Patron or President of 814 organizations. His wife, Queen Elizabeth II is patron of the Pilgrims Society. Long career in the navy from the start of WWII as a midshipsman to commanding his own frigate, the HMS Magpie. William R. Denslow's 10,000 Famous Freemasons: "Philip was initiated in Navy Lodge No. 2612 of London on Dec 5, 1952. Present at the initiation were the Earl of Scarbrough, grand master, q.v., and Geoffrey Fisher, archbishop of Canterbury." Philip is a Master Mason, never having shown great interest in the organization, while his cousin, Prince Edward (b. 1935) is the grand master of the United Grand Lodge. He and his wife set off for a tour of the Commonwealth, with visits to Africa, Australia, and New Zealand in 1952. They went on to visit the remote parts of the Commonwealth in 1956. Gordon Creighton, a Foreign Service official and Intelligence officer, concluded his story about a reported 1960s UFO landing on the estate of Prince Philip with: "So there had been a landing on the estate of Mountbatten and there was Mountbatten's great interest." The entire testimony was made during an interview with the Disclosure Project in September 2000. Prince Philip supposedly had a drawer full of sketches and information on different types of UFOs. Philip co-founded the WWF International in 1961 with Julian Huxley and Prince Bernhard. He has been the long time president of WWF UK. Co-founded the 1001 Nature Trust and 1001 Club from 1971 to 1974, together with Anton Rupert and Prince Bernhard. Co-founded the Interfaith consultations between Jews, Christians, and Muslims in 1984, together with Crown Prince Hassan of Jordan and Sir Evelyn de Rothschild at Windsor castle. In August 1988, Prince Philip said to the West German Deutsche Press Agentur: "In the event that I am reincarnated, I would like to return as a deadly virus, in order to contribute something to solve overpopulation". He wrote something along similar lines in the foreword of the 1987 book 'If I Were An Animal', written by Fleur Cowles. Philip was supposedly hostile to Diana after she divorced Charles in 1996. Mohamed Al-Fayed claimed Prince Philip had ordered Diana's murder who was killed in a car crash on August 31, 1997. Queen Elizabeth II said to Diana's butler Paul Burrell in December 1997: "Nobody, Paul has been as close to a member of my family as you have... There are powers at work in this country about which we have no knowledge." She advised him to be cautious and to lay low. Unlike his son, Charles, Philip supports genetically modified foods. On June 7, 2000, The Guardian quoted the Duke of Edinburgh as saying: "Do not let us forget we have been genetically modifying animals and plants ever since people started selective breeding." Philip is known to be the head of the family; what he says, generally goes. He is still president emeritus of the WWF International.
