THE BILDERBERGERS

  

      
            Bilderberg was set up by Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands who 'once wore the black uniform of Hitler’s SS' according to Alden Hatch, author of 'H. R. H. Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands; an authorized biography'.
Another relative of Philip was the Prussian Prince Bernhard von Lippe who joined the Nazis while studying at the University of Berlin in 1934 and worked openly in the motorised SS. According to Newsweek (April 5, 1976) it was known that Prince Bernhard was a member of a special SS intelligence unit in IG Farben and this had originally been pointed out in testimony at the Nuremberg trials.

Bernhard resigned from the SS, in 1937, when he married the future Queen Juliana of the Netherlands. Adolf Hitler forwarded a congratulatory message though Bernhard, who became a naturalised Dutchman.

Philip and Bernhard remained not just distant relatives but close friends and in October, 1961, founded the World Wildlife Fund.


 

Prince Bernhard of The Netherlands. The Prince was the founding chairman of the publicity-shy Western power elite, the Bilderbergers. This shadowy and secretive group meets over a weekend in May/June each year, under an almost total media blackout [see deBriefings this issue]. Powerful and very influential figures from the world of banking, business, politics, the media, trades unions and academia are invited. Included regularly, for example, are Dr Henry Kissinger, David Rockefeller, and Italy's "king-maker", Gianni Agnelli. The first meeting took place in May 1954.

This, strangely, was the same year that Prince Bernhard became head of the Johanitter Orde in Nederland, one of four orders that make up the Chivalric Alliance of Orders of Saint John (Alliance de Chevalerie des Hospitaliers de Saint Jean de Jerusalem). The stated purpose of these four, known as "the Alliance"--which is composed of northern European nations Germany, The Netherlands, Sweden and Great Britain, the latter being an ancient order known as "the Most Venerable Order"--is "to reduce to silence the enemies of Christ". The headquarters of the Alliance are located in Switzerland.

These are Protestant orders rather than Catholic, but it is of significance that, on 26 November 1963, the Alliance was "consolidated with the signing of a joint declaration between the Sovereign Military Order of Malta and the Most Venerable Order, at St John's Gate, London, by the Grand Chancellor of the SMOM, the Prince of Resuttano, and Lord Wakehurst, Lord Prior of the Most Venerable Order". In other words, the Catholic and Protestant orders bound themselves to work together to "silence the enemies of Christ"--a clear reference to communism.

Interestingly, it has been suggested that the Knights Templars were "infected" with the Johannite or Mandaean heresy that denounced Jesus as a "false prophet" and in his place recognised John the Baptist as the true Messiah. Meanwhile, two early Grand Masters of the Priory of Sion are said to have had Johannite tendencies: Leonardo da Vinci and Sir Isaac Newton. Notwithstanding that, the famous founder of the Knights Templars, Hughes de Payens, has been accused by the Vatican of being a Johannite.

Leaving aside this brief foray into esoteric history, it is as well to note that Prince Bernhard, in addition to his Bilderberg role and as head of the Dutch Johannite Order, was also an honorary member of Himmler's SS and worked in NW7, the global intelligence arm of I.G. Farben which acted in the interests of the Nazi cause. The activities of NW7 in Latin America before, during and after World War II are deeply interwoven in this story.

           Daniel Estulin: Breaking the Silence ... Bilderberg exposed!

 

Award-winning investigative journalist Daniel Estulin writes: When presidents, prime ministers, bankers and generals rub shoulders with European royalty at the annual secret Bilderberg meeting, they discuss the business of running markets and wars without being accountable to the public.

Bilderberg's Plans for the World

The Bilderberg group's secret annual meeting determines many of the headlines and news developments that you will read about in the coming months. But the Establishment media completely black out any news of it and remain strangely reluctant to lift the curtain hiding this major event. A number of high-ranking members of the press who attend the annual meeting are sworn to secrecy, and news editors are held responsible if any of their journalists "inadvertently" report on what takes place. Yet few have ever heard of this exclusive and secretive group of the world's most powerful financiers, industrialists and political figures.

Although the Bilderberg group has lost some of its past luster, on May 5-8,  2005 it met at Rottach-Egern (in Munich, Germany) under its usual secrecy that makes a freemasonry lodge look like a playgroup. Staff at the hotel were photographed and put through special clearance. From porters to senior managers, the employees were warned (under the threat of never working in their country again) about the consequences of revealing any details of the guests to the press.

The discussions that the Bilderbergers engaged in this year and the consensus they reached -- deciding how the world should deal with European-American relations, the Middle East powder keg, the Iraq war, the global economy and how to stave off war in Iran -- will influence the course of Western civilization and the future of the entire planet. Ironically, they met behind closed doors, protected by a phalanx of armed guards.

After three straight years of open hostility and tension amongst the European, British and American Bilderbergers, caused by the war in Iraq, the aura of complete congeniality amongst them has returned. Bilderbergers have reaffirmed and remain united in their long-term goal to strengthen the role the United Nations plays in regulating global conflicts and relations.

However, it is important to understand that the Americans are no more the "Hawks" than the European Bilderbergers are the "Doves." Europeans joined in supporting the 1991 invasion of Iraq by US President George Bush Senior, celebrating (in the words of notable Bilderberg hunter Jim Tucker) the end of "America's Vietnam syndrome." Europeans also supported former US President Bill Clinton's invasion of Yugoslavia, bringing NATO into the operation.

UN Global Oil Tax and Peacebuilding Proposals

A much discussed subject in 2005 at Rottach-Egern was the concept of imposing a UN tax on people worldwide through a direct tax on oil at the well-head. This, in fact, sets a precedent. If enacted, it would be the first time that a non-governmental agency (read the United Nations) directly benefited from a tax on citizens of free and enslaved nations. The Bilderberg proposal calls for a tiny UN levy at the outset, which the consumer would hardly notice.

Jim Tucker, formerly of the court-killed Spotlight magazine, wrote in the American Free Press (June 14–21, 2004) that: "...establishing the principle that the UN can directly tax citizens of the world is important to Bilderberg. It is another giant step toward world government. Bilderbergers know that publicly promoting a UN tax on all people on Earth would meet with outrage. But they are patient; it [Bilderberg] first proposed a direct world tax years ago and celebrates the fact that it is now in the public dialogue with little public attention or concern."

Bilderberg wants "tax harmonisation" so that high-tax countries can compete with more tax-friendly nations -- including the United States -- for foreign investment. They would "harmonise" taxes by forcing the rate in the US and other countries to rise so that socialist Sweden's 58% level would be "competitive."

According to sources, an unidentified guest at the conference asked how global taxation can be sold to the American public. One European Union commissioner suggested using as the battering ram the rhetoric of helping countries build peaceful, stable societies once conflict subsides. Someone asked for the timing of the appeal. A former commissioner mentioned that the best time to ask for cash is once the conflict subsides and the world is subjected to brutal images of destruction. A Norwegian Bilderberger disagreed. What looked to be Bjorn T. Grydeland, Norway's ambassador to the European Union, said that, on the contrary, it's much easier to get world attention and money for a region when a conflict rages.

This was confirmed a posteriori when Denmark's foreign minister Per Stig Moller, during a debate in the United Nations on 26 May, stated on the record that "[i]f the international community is not able to act swiftly, the fragile peace is at risk, with loss of more lives as a consequence." Denmark holds the EU presidency until July 1, 2005, when it will be replaced by the UK. [The changeover took place just before we went to press. Ed.]

Bilderbergers are planning to use what they nominated as a UN Peacebuilding Commission, apparently to help win the peace in post-conflict countries, as one of the tools in secretly imposing the UN tax on an unsuspecting world population.

Jim Tucker said as much in his Bilderberg report in the American Free Press (May 23) when he wrote: "There was some informal discussion of timing for a vote in the United Nations on establishing a direct global tax by imposing a 10-cents-a-barrel levy on oil at the well-head. This is important to the Bilderberg goal of establishing the UN as a formal world government. Such a direct tax on individuals is symbolically important. Bilderberg's global tax proposal has been pending before the UN for three years but the issue has been blacked out by the Bilderberg-controlled US media."

Mark R. Warner, governor of Virginia and a first-time Bilderberg invitee, expressed concern about how much additional financial responsibility the United States would take on as a result. At this point, Jose M. Durao Barroso, president of the European Commission, expressed a view held by many within Bilderberg that the United States does not provide a fair share of economic aid to poor countries. My sources confirm Jim Tucker's report that "Kissinger and David Rockefeller, among other Americans, beamed and nodded approval."

Although the US pays more into the foreign-aid piggy bank than any country in the world, the Bilderbergers and the United Nations are poised to demand much more funding from it to meet the Peacebuilding proposal.

NGOs and the Global Neighbourhood

The rise of the NGOs (non-governmental organizations) is a development that former US President Clinton suddenly (one day after it was discussed at Rottach-Egern) suggested to be among "the most remarkable things that have happened since the fall of the Berlin Wall." Ironically, Clinton's statement was picked up by the Wall Street Journal, a paper represented at the Bilderberg meetings by its vice-president, Robert L. Bartley, until his death in December 2003, and its editorial page editor, Paul Gigot.

The Bilderbergers have been vigorously debating, for the first time, whether to have unelected, self-appointed environmental activists given positions of governmental authority on the governing board of the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) -- the agency which controls the use of the atmosphere, outer space, the oceans and, for all practical purposes, biodiversity. This invitation for "civil society" to participate in global governance is described as "expanding democracy."

According to sources within Bilderberg, the status of NGOs would be elevated even further in the future. NGO activity would include agitating at the local level, lobbying at the national level and producing studies to justify global taxation through UN organizations such as Global Plan, one of Bilderberg's pet projects for over a decade.

The strategy to advance the global governance agenda specifically includes programs to discredit individuals and organizations that generate "internal political pressure" or "populist action" that fails to support the new global ethic.

The ultimate objective, according to sources, is to suppress democracy.

If the plan proceeds, UNEP, along with all the environmental treaties under its jurisdiction, would ultimately be governed by a special body of environmental activists, chosen only from accredited NGOs appointed by delegates to the General Assembly who are themselves appointed by the President of the United States, who himself is controlled by the Rockefeller-Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)-Bilderberg interlocking leadership.

This new mechanism would provide a direct route from the local, "on-the-ground," NGO affiliates of national and international NGOs to the highest levels of global governance. For example, the Greater Yellowstone Coalition, a group of affiliated NGOs, recently petitioned the World Heritage Committee of UNESCO asking for intervention in the plans of a private company to mine gold on private land near Yellowstone Park. The UNESCO committee did intervene, and immediately listed Yellowstone as a "World Heritage Site in Danger."

Under the terms of the World Heritage Convention, the United States is required to protect the park, even beyond the borders of the park and onto private lands if necessary.

The ideas being discussed, if implemented, would bring all the people of the world into a global neighborhood, managed by a worldwide bureaucracy under the direct authority of a minute handful of appointed individuals and policed by thousands of individuals, paid by accredited NGOs, and all certified to support a belief system that to many people is unbelievable and unacceptable.

A Lesson for Tony Blair

Bilderbergers are celebrating the result they wanted: the return of a much humbled Tony Blair to 10 Downing Street, with a much reduced parliamentary majority.

European Bilderbergers are still angry at him for supporting America's war in Iraq. While teaching Blair a useful lesson in international politics, Bilderbergers feel he is a far safer candidate to continue on the path of European integration than his conservative rival, Michael Howard.

The EU Referendum in France

The first day of secret meetings at Bilderberg 2005 was dominated by talk of the European Union referendum in France and whether President Chirac could persuade France to vote "Yes" on 29 May. A "Yes" vote, according to sources within Bilderberg, would put a lot of pressure on Tony Blair to finally deliver Britain into the waiting arms of the New World Order through its own referendum on the treaty, scheduled for 2006. Matthias Nass, Deputy Editor of Die Zeit, wondered out loud that a "No" vote in France could undoubtedly cause political turmoil in Europe and overshadow Britain's six-month EU presidency starting on 1 July.

Bilderbergers hope that Blair and Chirac, whose at times open animosity has spilled into the public arena on more than one occasion, can work together for mutual benefit and political survival. Another European Bilderberger added that both leaders must put behind them as quickly as possible all past disputes on such topics as Iraq, the liberalization of Europe's economy and the future of the budget rebate that Britain receives from the EU, and work towards complete European integration -- which could disintegrate if France's often "hard-headed and obstinate people," in the words of a British Bilderberger, do not do the right thing, meaning give up voluntarily their independence for the "greater good" of a European federal super-state!

A German Bilderberger insider said that France's "Yes" vote is in trouble because of the "outsourcing of jobs." "Jobs in Germany and France are going to Asia and Latvia [to take advantage of cheap labour]." Latvia is one of the former Soviet republics that have been admitted to the European Union, bringing the total membership to 25 nations. A German politician wondered out loud how Tony Blair will go about convincing Britons to embrace the European Constitution when, due to the outsourcing of jobs, both Germany and France are suffering 10 per cent unemployment while Britain is doing well economically.

The Neo-conservative Lobby

In full force was that faction: the so-called "neo-conservatives," who have determined that Israel's security should come at the expense of the safety of the United States and be central to all US foreign policy decisions.

Most notable among them is Richard N. Perle, who was investigated by the FBI for conducting espionage on behalf of Israel. Perle played a critical role in pushing the United States into the war against Iraq. On March 27, 2003, he was forced to resign from the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board after it was learned he'd been advising Goldman Sachs International, an habitual Bilderberg attendee, on how it might profit from the war in Iraq.

Another neo-conservative figure on hand was Michael A. Ledeen, an "intellectual's intellectual." Ledeen serves for the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), a think-tank founded in 1943 and with which Richard Perle has long been associated. AEI and the Brookings Institution operate a Joint Center for Regulatory Studies (JCRS), the purpose being to hold lawmakers and regulators "accountable for their decisions by providing thoughtful, objective analyses of existing regulatory programs and new regulatory proposals." The JCRS pushes for cost-benefit analysis of regulations, which fits with AEI's (and the Bilderbergers') ultimate goal of deregulation.

These neo-conservatives were also joined this year at Bilderberg by a handful of other former top Washington policymakers and publicists known for their sympathies for Israel, including: Richard N. Haass, former State Department official and president of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR); Richard Holbrooke, former assistant secretary of state and "father" of the Dayton Accord; Dennis Ross, of the pro-Israel Washington Institute for Near East Policy, effectively an offshoot of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) and the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs (JINSA); and Paul Wolfowitz, the newly elected World Bank president.

American Criminals: Public Policy in Private

In the United States, the Logan Act states explicitly that it is against the law for federal officials to attend secret meetings with private citizens to develop public policies.

Although Bilderberg 2005 was missing one of its luminaries -- US State Department official John Bolton, who was testifying before the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations -- the US Government was well represented in Rottach-Egern by: Allan E. Hubbard, Assistant to the President for Economic Policy and director of the National Economic Council; William Luti, Deputy Under-Secretary of Defense; James Wolfensohn, outgoing president of the World Bank; and Paul Wolfowitz, Deputy Secretary of State, an ideologue of the Iraq war and incoming president of the World Bank. By attending the Bilderberg 2005 meeting, these people broke United States federal law.

Journalistic Whores

Bilderberg, at one time or another, has had representatives of all major US and European newspapers and network news outlets attend. High-ranking members of the inadequately named "international free press" attend on their solemn promise to report nothing. This is how Bilderberg keeps its news blackout virtually complete in the United States and Europe.

This year's invitees included: Nicolas Beytout, editor-in-chief of Le Figaro; Oscar Bronner, publisher and editor of Der Standard; Donald Graham, chairman of the Washington Post; Matthias Nass, deputy editor of Die Zeit; Norman Pearlstine, editor-in-chief of Time; J. Robert S. Prichard, president and CEO of Torstar Media Group (Toronto Star); Cüneyt Ulsevere, columnist for Hürriyet; John Vinocur, senior correspondent for the International Herald Tribune; Martin Wolf, associate editor of the Financial Times; Fareed Zakaria, editor of Newsweek International; Klaus Zumwinkel, chairman of Deutsche Post; and John Micklethwait, US editor of The Economist and Adrian Wooldridge, Washington correspondent for The Economist. Micklethwait and Wooldridge acted as the meeting's rapporteurs.

Declining Energy Reserves and Economic Downturn

Of course, discussion at Bilderberg 2005 turned to oil. An American Bilderberger expressed concern over the sky-rocketing oil price. One oil industry insider at the meeting remarked that growth is not possible without energy, and that according to all indicators the world's energy supply is coming to an end much faster than the world leaders have anticipated.

According to sources, Bilderbergers estimate the extractable world's oil supply will last a maximum of 35 years under current economic development and population. However, one of the representatives of an oil cartel remarked that they must factor into the equation the population explosion and economic growth as well as demand for oil in China and India.

Under the revised conditions, there is apparently only enough oil to last for 20 years.

  • No oil spells the end of the world's financial system -- which has already been acknowledged by the Wall Street Journal and the Financial Times, two newspapers that are regularly represented at the annual Bilderberg conference.

The conclusion: expect a severe downturn in the world's economy over the next two years as Bilderbergers try to safeguard the remaining oil supply by taking money out of people's hands. In a recession or, at worst, a depression, the population will be forced to dramatically cut down their spending habits, thus ensuring a longer supply of oil to the world's rich as they try to figure out what to do.

During cocktails one afternoon, a European Bilderberger noted that there is no plausible alternative to hydrocarbon energy. One American insider stated that currently the world uses between four and six barrels of oil for every new barrel it finds, and that the prospects for a short-term breakthrough are slim at best. This confirms a public statement made in 2003 by IHS Energy, the world's most respected consulting firm cataloguing oil reserves and discoveries, that for the first time since the 1920s there was not a single discovery of an oil field in excess of 500 million barrels.

One invitee asked for an estimate of the world's accessible conventional oil supply. The amount was quoted at approximately one trillion barrels. As a side note of interest, the planet consumes a billion (1,000,000,000) barrels of oil every 11.5 days. Another Bilderberger asked about the hydrogen alternative to oil.

The US government official agreed gloomily that hydrogen's salvation of the world's imminent energy crisis is a fantasy.

At the 2005 Bilderberg conference, the oil industry was represented by: John Browne, chief executive officer of BP; Sir John Kerr, director of Royal Dutch/Shell; Peter D. Sutherland, chairman of BP; and Jeroen van der Veer, chairman of the committee of managing directors at Royal Dutch/ Shell. (Queen Beatrix of The Netherlands, Royal Dutch/Shell's principal shareholder, is a fully fledged member of the Bilderbergers. Her father, Prince Bernhard, was one of the founders of the group back in 1954.)

It should be noted that in late 2003, oil and gas giant Royal Dutch/Shell announced it had overstated its reserves by as much as 20%; in early 2004 it reduced its estimated oil and gas reserves by about 4.5 billion barrels, but in October had to apply an additional cut of 1.15 billion barrels in reserve estimates. In fact, Shell's three cuts in reserve estimates prompted the resignation of its co-chairman.

  • The Los Angeles Times (January 18, 2005) reported: "For petroleum firms, reserves amount to nothing less than 'the value of the company'."

At Rottach-Egern in May 2005, the industry's top executives tried to figure out how to keep the truth about diminishing oil reserves from reaching the public. Public knowledge of the diminishing reserves directly translates into lower share prices which could destroy financial markets, leading to a collapse of the world economy.

An American Bilderberger wondered what it would take for the oil price to go back to US$25 a barrel. Another American Bilderberger, believed to be Allan Hubbard, laconically stated that the general public does not realise that the price for cheap oil can be the bursting of the debt bubble. Cheap oil slows economic growth because it depresses commodity prices and reduces world liquidity.

There is a strong indication, based on the information reported from the Bilderberg 2005 meeting in Rottach-Egern, that the US Federal Reserve is extremely concerned about the debt bubble. One American Bilderberger reported that if the price of oil were to go down to its previous low of $25 a barrel, the debt-driven asset bubble would explode. Martin S. Feldstein, president of the National Bureau of Economic Research, added that $50 a barrel involves greater cash flow.

According to publicly available information, the United States consumes daily approximately 20 million barrels of oil out of a total world consumption of 84 million barrels. At $50 a barrel, the aggregate oil bill for the US comes to $1 billion a day, $365 billion a year, about 3 per cent of 2004 US gross domestic product (GDP). About 60% of US consumption is imported at a cost of $600 million a day, or $219 billion a year.

A short, stout man asked if the surging oil price would influence economic growth. Someone sitting in the front row noted that higher energy prices do not take money out of the economy; they merely shift profit allocation from one business sector to another. After further discussion, a US General commented that war spending helps jump-start the economy, noting that the trick to keeping the opposition at bay is to limit collateral damage to foreign soil.

A British Bilderberger noted that oil at $120 a barrel would greatly benefit Britain and the United States, but Russia and China would be the biggest winners. An expert in international relations and policy studies noted that for the Chinese this would be a real bonanza. The Chinese import energy not for domestic consumption but, instead, to fuel its growing cheap exports -- a cost that would be duly passed on to foreign buyers. A European banker pointed out that Russia could effectively devalue the dollar by re-denominating its energy trade with Europe from dollars into euros, forcing Europe's central banks to rebalance their foreign exchange reserves in favor of the euro. Jean-Claude Trichet, Governor of the European Central Bank, was present during the debate.

Globalized Trading and the Rift with China

European and American Bilderbergers, realizing the most urgent of needs to expand into developing markets in order to help sustain the illusion of endless growth, have agreed to name Pascal Lamy, a French socialist and fanatical supporter of a European super-state, as the next World Trade Organization (WTO) president. It should be remembered that Washington gave conditional support to Lamy's nomination in exchange for European support of Paul Wolfowitz as head of the World Bank.

According to insider sources within the Bilderbergers, Lamy was chosen to help steer the global trading system through a time of rising protectionist sentiment in rich countries such as France and Germany, both reeling from high unemployment and reticent to accept increasingly muscular demands for market access from emerging economies. Third World States, for example, are insisting on cuts to EU and US farm subsidies. The WTO liberalization drive collapsed in acrimony in Seattle in 1999 and again in Cancun in 2003.

The Bilderbergers have secretly agreed on the need to force the poor countries into a globalized market for cheap goods while simultaneously forcing the poor into becoming customers. The current rift with China is a good example, as the Chinese have flooded Western countries with cheap goods, amongst them textiles, driving down prices. As a trade-off, the Bilderbergers have entered into an emerging market ripe and vulnerable to superior Western know-how. Similar developing countries are slowly acquiring more purchasing power, and the industrialized world is gaining a foothold in their domestic economies by targeting them for cheap exports.

Further discussion on China was led off with a series of rhetorical questions from the speaker.

Is China really abusing its competitive advantage, or is it being victimized by the US and the EU?

Is a trade war imminent?

Should China revalue the Yuan (its currency), and, if so, how should it do this?

An American Bilderberger noted that China in 2005 is one of the leading world economic powers whose actions influence the world economy. Another American, believed to be but not positively identified as Michael Ledeen of the American Enterprise Institute, said that if China doesn't revalue the Yuan it would cause the entire world trade system to go out of whack. Someone mentioned that the current situation could be dangerous for the Chinese economy due to the creation of excess liquidity.

Elena Nemirovskaya, founder of the Moscow School of Political Studies, asked what would happen if the Yuan were allowed to float freely. An economist responded that this could bring about serious consequences to the world's financial markets. China's foreign exchange reserves are to a large extent made up of US Treasury bills. An appreciation of the Yuan would cause its dollar reserves to depreciate.

A German Bilderberger pointed out that this could force the Federal Reserve to have to raise interest rates, thus causing the current housing boom in the US to come to a screeching halt. An oversized Dutchman pointed out that the International Monetary Fund needs to play an active role in helping the Yuan.

"Is there a real danger, then," asked an Italian Bilderberger, "of this dispute deteriorating into an all-out trade war?" "Not likely," according to an unidentified blond man from Scandinavia, believed to be a Swede, "because China has totally integrated itself into the market economy."

An American Bilderberger and a member of the US government noted that all the posturing is part of the act to keep the voters back home happy.

China's moves into the Mekong region did not go unnoticed at the conference. William J. Luti, US Deputy Under-Secretary of Defense for Near Eastern and South Asian Affairs, explained that China's rapid expansion into the Mekong region, comprising Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam, could threaten US interests in the area. Such moves by China would give it an enhanced role in South-East Asia.

Over the last several years, China has invested heavily in transport infrastructure development linking China's southwestern Yunan province and the Mekong region.

A European Bilderberger pointed out that China is heavily dependent on oil imports. Someone asked for a figure. A tall, lanky man with glasses, believed to be Jeroen van der Veer, Chairman of Royal Dutch Shell, responded that some 40% of China's supply is imported. In fact, China's move into the Mekong region is the result of acute awareness that the country's energy supplies are vulnerable to interference. Overall, 32% of energy supplies, China's lifeblood, passes through the narrow and easily blocked Strait of Malacca.

Indonesia-Malaysia Stand-off

A political and military confrontation between Indonesia and Malaysia in the oil-rich Sulawesi Sea (both claim territorial right to the area of Ambalat) was the topic of much animated discussion among several American and European Bilderbergers during Friday afternoon cocktails. An American Bilderberger waving his cigar suggested using the United Nations to "further a peace policy in the region."

In fact, Bilderbergers at the lounge table all agreed that such a conflict might well give them an excuse to garrison the disputed area with UN "Peacekeepers" and thus ensure their ultimate control over the exploitation of this treasure, meaning untapped oil reserves.

Nobel Peace Prize Pressure

The appearance at Bilderberg 2005 of Nobel Peace Prize Committee Secretary Geir Lundestad was considered likely to mean, according to sources familiar with the discussion, a full court press by the American, British and Israeli delegation to the Nobel committee to prevent the Israeli nuclear technician Mordechai Vanunu from winning the coveted award.

Vanunu spent 18 years in an Israeli prison -- eleven and a half of them in solitary confinement -- for providing evidence of Israel's nuclear arsenal to the London Sunday Times newspaper in October 1986. Should Vanunu win the Nobel for peace, it would bring uncomfortable attention to the Israeli nuclear arsenal, especially in the face of growing evidence that Israel and the United States are about to punish Iran for trying to develop its own nuclear weapons.

Strong pressure was applied on Lundestad not to choose Hans Blix, the UN weapons inspector in Iraq, nor Mohamed El Baradei, director-general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, whom President Bush had tried to remove for not being tough enough on Iran.

Some of this year's other nominees are US President George W. Bush and UK Prime Minister Tony Blair for supposedly protecting world peace; the European Union; French President Jacques Chirac, the main culprit for the "No" vote on the European Constitution; former Czech President Vaclav Havel; the now-deceased Pope John Paul II; Cuban dissident Oswaldo Paya; and US Senator Richard Lugar and former senator Sam Nunn for their Cooperative Threat Reduction Program, which is intended to dismantle nuclear weapons left over from the Soviet Union.

The Iran–Russia–China Alliance

According to reports, a French Bilderberger pointedly asked Henry Kissinger if the US Government's saber-rattling against Iran means the beginning of new hostilities. Richard Haass, CFR President, after asking for his turn to speak, dismissed the notion of an Iran invasion as unrealistic due to the sheer physical size of the country and its population size, not to mention the billions of dollars involved in getting the operation off the ground. Up to the eyeballs in the Iraq quagmire, the United States military is wary of any new adventures in hostile terrain against a much healthier enemy, both better prepared and organized.

A Swiss Bilderberger asked if a hypothetical attack on Iran would involve a pre-emptive strike against its nuclear sites. Richard Haass replied that such an attack would prove to be counterproductive because Tehran's counterattack options could range from "unleashing terrorism and promoting instability in Iraq, Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia, to triggering oil price increases that could trigger a global economic crisis." During dinner, according to several sources, Richard Perle criticized Haass's position and explained his opposition to his view.

A woman believed to be Heather Munroe-Blum, Vice-Chancellor of McGill University, Quebec, Canada, asked a rhetorical question about what would happen if Iran were to continue building its nuclear arsenal. Haass replied that in this scenario, the United States would have no choice but to grant Iran the same status as it does to Pakistan and India.

A US General commented that the China–Iran–Russia alliance is changing the geopolitical situation in the area. Rapprochement between Russia and China is viewed by the Bilderbergers as a significant event not to be taken lightly, even though it has received little media attention in the West.

A secret US government report was cited wherein, according to sources, the Chinese have spent upwards of several billion dollars in acquiring Russia's latest and most sophisticated weapons technology. Someone pointed out that the Sino-Russian alliance is not limited to military trade and that the non-military exchange of goods has grown 100% since the beginning of the Bush presidency.

A delegate at the conference, believed but not positively identified by Secret Service sources to be Anatoly Sharansky, a former Israeli Minister for Jerusalem and Diaspora Affairs, stated categorically during Friday night cocktails that the counterweight to the Moscow-Beijing-Tehran axis is the US-Israel-Turkey alliance. A financial expert from a European nation intervened by stating that Russia is much better off financially today than four years ago because tax revenue generated by fuel and arms production and exports as a result of heavy emphasis on military production has financed strong growth of wages and pension incomes, boosting private consumption.

A German Bilderberger pointedly asked Richard Perle if the "war on terrorism" will intensify over the second term of the Bush presidency. Perle reportedly gave no reply but screwed up his face and looked away.

The feeling of "enough is enough" wasn't limited to the European Bilderbergers, wary of Bush's delirious, Hitler-like proclamations of regime changes worldwide.

Bilderberg luminary Richard Haass pointedly told Richard Perle during Saturday night cocktails that the Bush Administration has overestimated its ability to change the world. Haass, according to several sources at the conference, is reported to have stated that regime change can be attractive because it is "less distasteful than diplomacy and less dangerous than living with new nuclear states." However, he noted: "There is only one problem: it is highly unlikely to have the desired effect soon enough."

A Possible Attack on Iran's Nuclear Facilities

The presence of US General James L. Jones, Supreme Allied Commander Europe, and Retired US Army General John M. Keane at the Bilderberg meeting in Germany suggested to us that the next stage of the conquest is about to begin.

An American neo-con at an afternoon drink-fest said he was convinced that the "Iranian opposition movement" will unseat the mullahs. Nicolas Beytout of Le Figaro exclaimed: "You don't really believe that!" A tall, bald, well-dressed Swiss gentleman, believed to be Pascal Couchepin, head of the powerful Department of Home Affairs, replied reflexively that it will only succeed in having the Iranians rally behind their government. He ended by saying: "You don't know Iranians."

Tempers boiled over momentarily when a French Bilderberger, raising his voice, told Kissinger that "an attack on Iran will escalate out of control." According to sources working for the CIA and the special unit of the US Army charged with protecting the US delegation at Rottach-Egern, both the CIA and the FBI are in open revolt against the Bush White House.

A member of the Greek Parliament asked Eival Gilady, strategic adviser to Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon: "What would happen if Iran were to retaliate?" Someone pointed out that even if the United States or Israel were to show restraint in their use of tactical nuclear weapons, an attack on Iran's nuclear facilities would surely not only engulf neighbor states, raising the likelihood of a broader war, but also succeed in creating a nuclear disaster through nuclear radiation spilling over a wide area.

As a follow-up question, someone asked: "How much of this war has to do with America doing its utmost to prevent Iran from becoming a regional power?" A French Bilderberger wished to know if the impending attack on Iran would involve the United States and Israel working in tandem, or if it would be a NATO operation. The question was directed at NATO Secretary-General Jaap G. de Hoop Scheffer. Another European Bilderberger wanted to know how the US was planning to cope with three wars simultaneously, referring to Iraq, Afghanistan and now Iran.

The reader should be reminded that there are now 150,000 US troops deployed in Iraq who are unable to move to another theatre of operations because of effective resistance tactics. The Israeli delegation was pressed to answer if Israel is prepared to use nuclear weapons against Iran. The answer was incoherent.

What is so terrifying about Iran as a theatre of operations is that, according to our deep sources (both of whom belong to the Bilderberg group), there are two alternative dates set for the invasion. The earliest possible date would be in the "deadest of summer," some time in August, and the other alternative is a late autumn campaign. This substantially confirms the information provided by Scott Ritter, the ex-Marine turned UNSCOM weapons inspector, who stated that "George W. Bush has signed off on plans to bomb Iran in June 2005" (Aljazeera, March 30, 2005), although he did go on to clarify that the June date suggests that the US and Israel are "in a state of readiness."

Russian vs American Foreign Policy

Policy discussion began with a European expert on international relations pointing out that over the next several years Russia is poised to assert itself and increasingly challenge Bush Government foreign policy goals.

Someone openly asked the committee if the world is safer today than in 2001 and if it will be safer in four years' time. A Dutchman responded by saying there is little doubt that the hand of international terrorism has been substantially strengthened by the US Government's heavy-handed policy in the Middle East. A Danish Bilderberger wondered about what had happened to the US promise to take a lower-key approach in Iraq -- referring to the heavy-handed tactics employed by American troops in the siege of Fallujah, which played an important role in alienating a large cross-section of moderate Arab states. Additionally, the Dutchman pointed out, terrorism hasn't been confined to the Iraq theatre of operations but has escalated across Asia, Africa and most of the Middle East.

A blonde woman, believed to be Therese Delpech, Director of Strategic Affairs for the Atomic Energy Commission, said that unilateralist policy actions by the US will only succeed in alienating friendly nations and emboldening enemy combatants.

"US is not all-powerful ... it must coordinate its policy with other great powers to achieve its ends."

An oil expert believed to be from Britain, possibly Sir John Kerr of Royal Dutch Shell, focused on the oil pipeline from Siberia to northern China. The Bilderbergers openly wondered at the medium-term repercussions of this deal. An American investment banker asked just how much oil is expected to flow through this pipeline. Another member of the oil cartel offered 65-80 million tonnes per year as a ballpark figure.

India's Missile Tests

During Saturday night cocktails at the bar, neo-con Richard Perle was seen and heard talking to a group of Bilderbergers, amongst them Philippe Camus, President of the European Aeronautic Defense & Space Company (EADS), Donald Graham of the Washington Post and General James L. Jones about the near-future test-firing of India's Agni 3 intermediate-range ballistic missile capable of carrying nuclear warheads. General Jones added that such a weapon would greatly increase India's capabilities because, according to the four-star general, India's strategic deterrents will be able to strike targets deep inside neighboring China. In fact, Dr M. Natarajan, head of the prestigious Defense Research & Development Organization (DRDO), said as much two weeks later on May 17 in New Delhi.

The 2005 German Elections

The Bilderbergers also discussed how to dust off the "boring" image of Angela Merkel, Germany's "future leader," ahead of the German elections on September 18, 2005.

A short, oversized male Bilderberger offered an opinion that in order for the widest cross-section of the German public to accept Merkel (leader of the Christian Democratic Union opposition) as Chancellor, it would be important to give a new definition to the term "family values." German Bilderbergers well versed in the conservative Bavarian collective psyche believe that Merkel, a divorcee with a doctorate in physics, doesn't have a "reliable" enough image to attract sufficient votes in this staunchly conservative area of the country. According to people within earshot of the discussion, the idea "in the up-coming campaign would be to stress the importance of families rather than marriage as an institution."

Bilderbergers pushing Gerhard Schroeder aside in favour of a new candidate could very well signify that, after three years of strife between American and European Bilderbergers over the war in Iraq, the secret society is ready to move forward with a much-revised and more cohesive policy. It must be remembered that Schroeder, along with French President Chirac, was one of the most vociferous European critics of the US-led Iraq intervention.

Both Schroeder, representing the left, and Merkel, representing the right, are owned by the Bilderbergers. It has been the group's policy since its inception in 1954 to own both horses in the race.

For the record, every US President belongs to the Bilderberg group or its interlocked sister organization, the Council on Foreign Relations. Although Bush Junior didn't personally attend the meeting in Rottach-Egern, the US government was well represented by William Luti, Richard Perle, Dennis Ross and Allan Hubbard.

Towards a One World Government

History teaches by analogy, not identity. The historical experience is not one of staying in the present and looking back; rather, it is one of going back into the past and returning to the present with a wider and more intense consciousness of the restrictions of our former outlook.

If democracy is the rule of the people, then secret government agendas and sinister, influence-peddling cliques which stand for cunning selfishness are incompatible with it. The whole idea of clandestine spheres of influence waging secret campaigns is therefore foreign to the notion of democracy and must be fought with zealous determination.

Through lies and obfuscations, Bilderbergers are desperately trying to foist onto the unwilling world population a totalitarian One World Government, a single global currency and a syncretic universal religion.

Those of us who care deeply about the future of politics -- domestic and international -- cannot afford to ignore the fact that the grimly political One World Government is no longer merely a shadow subculture. It has, in fact, emerged as the dominant force in world affairs.

Secretive power brokers meeting coming to Ottawa?

Wednesday, May 24, 2006

OTTAWA - The meetings of a secretive global think-tank would bring 100 of the world's most powerful and influential figures to Ottawa next month and make an Ottawa hotel the host of deliberations on such weighty issues as the direction of global oil markets and potential military action against Iran.

Reports circulating on the Internet say this year's Bilderberg Conference will be held June 8-11 at the Brookstreet Hotel a rumour the hotel would not confirm.

But, if a gathering in Ottawa is anything like past Bilderbergs, invitees will be drawn from the pages of International Who's Who, with a emphasis on political and corporate leadership and strong representation of the oil and banking industries. Guest lists typically include names like Kissinger, Rockefeller and Soros.

The obsessive secrecy that accompanies Bilderberg conferences could also draw Ottawa into the insane conspiracy theories that surround the group. The Bilderberg has been accused of being everything from a Zionist cabal building a single global government to a secret star-chamber that seeks to fix the price of oil and presidential elections.

Even some rational critics suspect the Bilderberg's meetings set the economic and political agenda for much of the industrialized world without any public oversight or accountability. They denounce the Bilderberg as elitist and overly secretive, calling it an anti-democratic gathering of ''the high priests of globalization.''

The conference takes its name from the Hotel de Bilderberg in the Netherlands, site of the first meeting in 1954. The group's intent was to link governments and economies in Europe and North America amid the Cold War. But its mandate has evolved, and it now exerts a global influence with interests in foreign policy in general and energy in particular.

Several Canadian political figures have spoken at Bilderbergs, including prime ministers Pierre Trudeau and Jean Chretien, New Brunswick premiers Bernard Lord and Frank McKenna, and former Ontario premier Mike Harris.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper's office would not say Tuesday if he's been invited to attend the rumoured Ottawa meetings. Harper attended the 2003 conference in Versailles, France.

Patrice Basille, general manager of the Brookstreet Hotel, said no event associated with the Bilderberg group has been formally booked at the hotel. He said two conferences, one out of Montreal and another out of Toronto, are booked for the weekend of June 8.

''What is the Bilderberg?'' he asked. ''This is the first I've heard about it.''

Journalists aren't allowed to attend the sessions, and staff at the host hotels are told not to confirm or deny any event is scheduled.

Not all of the attendees are comfortable with the pervasive secrecy, says U.K.-based journalist Tony Gosling, who runs a website devoted to uncovering the Bilderberg secrets ( http://www.bilderberg.org ). There is enough leakage from past conferences to determine generally what is discussed, he said.

''There is pretty much a preoccupation with the Middle East and oil at most of the meetings,'' he said. ''The whole idea is to meet a consensus, but it is a fairly narrow consensus. Most of the banking power in the Western world is behind Bilderberg policy, and particularly their energy policies.''

Gosling said two issues will likely concern the Ottawa meeting: How to deal with Iran's alleged nuclear threat, and the direction of Venezuela's oil industry under the leadership of leftist President Hugo Chavez.

The website americanfreepress.net reported Tuesday that Bilderberg was coming to Ottawa. Gosling said several of his sources have also confirmed the date and location.

Canada last hosted the conference in 1996, when participants invited by newspaper publisher Conrad Black gathered at a resort north of Toronto.

1. 8-11th June Ottawa 2006: Bilderberg 2006 and the Killers of Freedom

Venezuela and Iran, two great global 'problems' which, backed by most of the private money in the world, Bilderbergers will attempt to 'solve' in Ottawa next month. The public's majority view however, which they will scrupulously ignore, is that Venezuela and Iran represent two great bastions of freedom which have defended the views of their respective populations and refused to bow to the totalitarian dominance of the biggest war machine the world has ever seen and the fascist Project for a New American Century.
This year, the tenth I have covered Bilderberg, credit for pinpointing the venue is shared between Jim Tucker in Washington and Brussels activist Marek Tysis' scrutiny of Turkish language website, www.islamdevleti.org . Hearty thanks to everyone. Henry Kissinger and his co-conspirators edge closer every year to their goal of stopping ANY coverage of what is plainly the most powerful political and economic congress in the world. What BBC online called 'The Ultimate Conspiracy Theory'.
Those who enquire about Bilderberg's power are expected to wait with baited breath for an incomplete list of participants, delivered as the last luminary's car leaves the hotel. I know embarrassingly powerful people are removed because I spoke to the woman who served Tony Blair his breakfast at Turnberry in 1998. He was not on that year's list. I suppose Kissinger and friends get some kind of cheap 'kick' smuggling their superstars in and out.
If leaks are correct, this year's meeting will involve a 'dance macabre' celebrating the outbreak of 'democracy' in Iraq where only 80 people a day are shot dead or blown up and looking forward to repeating that 'success' in Iran. In secret session just a stone's throw from the Skull and Bones' Deer Island in the St. Lawrence river, they will bemoan the 'sectarian divide' and forget that the al-Askariya congregation in Samarra, wiped out in February, was one of those many mosques where Shi'ite and Sunni worshipped together.
So which 'faction' was responsible for killing their own people? Or was it the SAS, caught a few months earlier with explosives and dressed as arabs, or the CIA or Mossad who really destroyed that holy place and killed over 160 people? This is the equivalent of having the SAS demolish Westminster Cathedral and blaming it on Arabs. Think on.
Not since Dr Goebbels in the 1940's has the Western public been subjected to such daily repeated lies right across the news media about Iran, the Western plutocrats' latest 'rogue state'. In an incredible feat of myopia, the BBC scrupulously fails to mention that Iran is keeping to the letter of the Non-Proliferation Treaty, which Israel with its bristling nuclear arsenal still refuses to sign.
How easily the BBC mandarins have scrapped their motto - Nation shall Speak Peace unto Nation - as they fire off volleys of pseudo-intellectual cover for another round of carnage. Hundreds of thousands, even millions more Islamic murders are in prospect. In the vilest betrayal BBC Current Affairs managers and editors have turn a blind eye to the fate of the Jews just sixty years ago.
Meanwhile their fellow travellers at Bilderberg prepare to rotate their palms towards us, smile, and explain that they are nothing more than an innocent private club. Kissinger, Rockefeller and the rest will be crossing their fingers behind their back and hoping we don't notice the ten wealthiest bankers, five most prestigious European royals, four richest oil men, three biggest media barons (now minus bang to rights Conrad Black - well done Mounties!) and a bunch of frightened politicians are dreaming up more nightmares to poison our children's future.
Rather than the old silence, the New Labour press here in the UK, The Guardian now paints Bilderberg as the victim, defending their right to neither confirm nor deny, doffing the cap, and failing to inform their readers that this unelected body sits at the global black heart of the capitalism they make a pretence of opposing.

As Britain's respected daily paper of the left The Guardian Jason Walsh Blog's defence last week of Bilderberg, Skull and Bones and Neo-Con puppet Blair are appalling betrayals.
http://commentisfree.guardian.co.uk/jason_walsh/2006/05/a_conspiracy_of_dunces.html
Scrupulously ignored in their and the BBC's coverage is the fact that Bilderberg's founder, recently deceased Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands was a enthusiastic member of Hitler's elite SS before World War II. Neither will they mention umbilical ties to the freemasons' 500,000 strong religious cult whose most trusted personal assistant Andrew Palmer organised the last UK Bilderberg conference.
So, do the Guardian and the BBC chiefs not know these facts? - or simply not believe them? Whichever is true both BBC and Guardian censor all my letters and comments, (this is one of the latest
http://www.bilderberg.org/2006.htm#cohen ) even on the web. The most appallingly murderous right wing conspiracy in the history of our planet is being airbrushed from our consciousness.
The Guardian's editor Alan Rushbridger held back recently from fully dishing the dirt on his close friend David Mills, proven perjurer and partner of publicly exposed (on all five UK channels) money launderer Secretary of State for Culture Tessa Jowell. She has been left unharried by Metropolitan police commissioner Sir Ian Blair while she personally supervises the 'reorganisation' of the BBC board of governors.
The commons enquiry into criminal allegations of cash for peerages has somehow ground to a halt even though until someone is charged there are no restrictions on anyone discussing the subject and the committee are covered by parliamentary privilege. How these idiotic MP's were persuaded to drop their enquiry is beyond me. This means that the subject of criminal offences by top New Labour politicians has disappeared at least until late Autumn when MP's return from their summer recess.
The worm at the core of the Metropolitan Police Sir Ian Blair is not just a liar, he has also failed to question the prime suspect in the most shocking crime in the British mainland since World War II, last year's London bombings. Haroon Aswat, who US intelligence analyst John Loftus swears had access to MI6's military explosives and is known to have made several mobile phone calls to the four suspects in the London bombings just before the attacks, languishes in Belmarsh prison and is about to be extradited to Guantanamo Bay where the US authorities want to question him.
So meanwhile, back at the Bilderberg steering committee, Kissinger, Queen Bee and the rest of the gang are planning to use their obscene capital wealth for totalitarian ends of war. They have no thought or interest in feeding and house the poor of the world.
Rather than forgive strangling debt they will be doing everything in their power to use debt and their virtual private monopoly on the creation of money to acquire more and more of our world. African state water companies, Britain's Channel Three ITV network, everything our councils and our governments hold in trust for we the people, the list goes on.
We are sleepwalking into a world unfit for future generations, for our old age and human habitation. Ruled by crooked banks and corporations hell-bent on owning everything on our earth. A global plutocracy. Pinochet, Franco, Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini's dream.
So what can anyone do about it? We must all actively join the global movement against the impunity of these power grabbing crooks. To support the freedom fighters in Venezuela, Columbia, Iraq, Iran and in the USA, UK and elsewhere in the West. The crooks are protected by interlocking secret-society colleagues across the criminal justice system, but only if we let them. Victories have been few and ironically for Bilderberg this year Canadians have shown the way to bringing down Conrad Black, hater of trades unions and fraudster extraordinaire, the world has a lot to learn from the tremendous efforts of the Canadian Authorities to fearlessly arrest, charge and prosecute.
We must also prohibit all freemasons or other members of secret societies from holding any public office. The publication of full membership lists for each individual Masonic province, these follow the city and county councils here in the UK and each of the old British colonies is its own province. Provinces publish secret list of all members of that province. ALL these people must be excluded from public office as they have sworn an oath to their fellow members that precludes them from acting in the public interest.
Dare we hope for a surprise arrest warrant served by the Mounties at this year's Bilderberg? Maybe for Kissinger's role in overthrowing the democratically elected government of Chile and installing one of the 20th century's most brutal dictatorships. That would be a good start to this year's conference.

2. Decoding Dan Brown's DaVinci deception
Before plunging into DaVinci here's a thought for the non-appearance of the 911 documentary 'Loose Change II' at Cannes - whose rightful place as documentary of the year has been usurped by the banking establishment's favourite docudrama 'United 93'. British director Paul Greengrass admitted on Newsnight tonight that 'the stakes are high post 9/11'. He knows which side his bread is buttered and has followed the money. Well there's another one to miss.
The film of Dan Brown's book premiered at Cannes last week to much derision and amusement from the critics. The success of the story is no mystery, that it makes a feint at uncovering what so many of us sense to be normal nowadays, that the world is and has been run, possibly since the Middle Ages, by some Wizard of Oz behind the scenes.
But Dan Brown's book does what so much of our news media does nowadays. Like the Pied Piper it leads us off in the direction of the truth, sets out on a noble journey, then diverts us down its black hole under the mountain. Like government whitewashes like the Hutton enquiry it inverts the conclusion regardless of the evidence. So, if you have seen the film or do go along to it remember the following three points:
Firstly, the most powerful secret society is not Opus Dei or the probably fictional Prieure De Zion but the Illuminati. Sucking the kindly life-blood of the protestant church the Freemasons and their embedded Illuminati leadership are far more rich, powerful and closer to the devil than Opus Dei and the Catholics. If you haven't seen the proof of the existence of the 21st Century Illuminati please read my evidence in the next section of this bulletin. It is Masonic symbolism we see today and throughout history as any half-decent professor of semiotics such as Bologna University's Umberto Eco will spell out.
There is hope for anyone caught in the mason's psychological trap and subsequent mental prison but only one hope. To walk away forever and into the faith in and protection of Jesus Christ and the steadfast love of truth and righteousness. Freemasonic foot soldiers' relationship to their Illuminist masters parallels precisely the relationship between white and black magicians.
Secondly, the secret societies, over the last 700 years or so, almost certainly have been guarding a secret bloodline. This was famously revealed in the 1980's in The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail. But the 'secret' is a profound lie which goes to the heart of the three monotheistic faiths. A satanic fundamentalist blasphemy. The bloodline is not that of Christ but of a zealous Anti-Christ dynasty, with an insatiable appetite for money, sin and power, steeped in multi-generational evil.
Thirdly and finally The DaVinci Code has not been made by filmmakers who love their craft but bribed into existence from an open cheque book. As if to prove how little they really care leading lady, Audrey Tautou, even had her name spelled wrong in the film's credits! Morale and team spirit in the Western film and television production industry is in freefall. These days bankers and accountants make 'perfect' material for scriptwriters and production jobs because of their love of money and the power elite's world of numbers. Creative talent need not apply. That is why almost all films since the 1970's have been peculiarly unsatisfying.
One of the few exceptions in this propaganda industry, commandeered by the banks, was the first new Dr. Who series by the BBC, The Lord of the Rings trilogy and one or two under-funded UK feature films. Almost all the rest is brainwashing.
The film-industry's obsession with power through violence and fear are the propaganda techniques of Josef Goebbels. They are also those of Goebbels' mentor, Edward Bernays, little-known cousin of Sigmund Freud, who gave birth to an entire industry of professional liars, Public Relations.
Following the success of Sean Connery's brilliant performance in The Name of the Rose, lovers of truth eagerly await a film version of Foucault's Pendulum. That profound and entertaining book is Umberto Eco's studied interpretation of The Holy Blood and the Holy Grail and it shows Dan Brown up to be nothing more than a pawn of Big Brother.
So with the knowledge that the film industry no longer cares about the stories it produces, the understanding that the Illuminati and Freemasonry are the most powerful political and spiritual wing of the secret societies and that the historic secret they guard is a dismal lie, enjoy the film!

3. Bilderberg to Meet in Canada
http://www.americanfreepress.net/html/bilderberg_to_meet_in_canada.html
By James P. Tucker Jr.

The secretive group known as Bilderberg will hold its annual secret meeting at the posh Brook Street Resort a few miles from Ottawa, Canada, June 8-11.
The location and part of the agenda was disclosed to American Free Press by a source inside Bilderberg's inner circle.
High on the Bilderberg's secret agenda this year are oil prices and the political upheaval in Latin America. When meeting last year in Rottach-Egern, Germany, Bilderberg called for dramatic increases in the price of oil. Oil prices started climbing immediately from $40 a barrel to $70.
Whether Bilderberg will call for still higher prices is unclear, but Henry Kissinger and others had gleefully anticipated ultimate prices at $150 a barrel a year ago. Bilderberg is certainly concerned about supply, which is related to the "Latin American problem," as one insider said.
Approximately 120 international leaders in politics and finance will also discuss the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, which has caused a rare breach between American Bilderbergers and their European counterparts since the United States Iraq invasion in 2003. Whether the United States should invade Iran is also high on the agenda.
Bilderberg is especially concerned about Venezuela, where as part of a plan to increase revenues from its petroleum industry President Hugo Chavez said May 7 he would impose a new tax on companies that extract oil from his country. Big Oil is represented at Bilderberg by Jeroen van der Veer of The Netherlands, chairman of the Royal Dutch/Shell Group and Franco Bernabe of Italy, vice chairman of Rothschild Europe, among others. "We are going to create a new oil tax, called the tax on extraction,"
Chavez said. "The companies that are pumping oil in Venezuela are making a lot of money."
Chavez accused foreign oil companies of exploiting his country's vast petroleum reserves without paying sufficient taxes. Venezuela is the world's fifth-largest oil exporter but has troubled oil barons by sending cheap petroleum to needy American families and subsidizing domestic use so local citizens pay 12 cents a gallon.
Venezuela has voided oil-pumping contracts with private companies at 32 fields and replaced them with a mixed-company model that gave Venezuela's state-owned Petroleos de Venezuela SA a minimum 60 percent stake. Chavez has also sharply raised royalties and taxes, and reduced potential drilling acreage by almost two-thirds. He is also resisting expansion of NAFTA throughout the hemisphere, a prime Bilderberg goal.
Chavez's outspoken criticisms of the United States make it unlikely that American Bilderbergers can help smooth over the supply problem. However, banker David Rockefeller's family has always had a heavy interest in oil and other investments in South America.
President Bush will have a top White House aide representing him at Bilderberg, and high officials of the state, defense and treasury departments will attend. Heads of state and other high officials in government and banking will attend from Europe and Canada.
Bilderberg's agenda also includes the turmoil in the Middle East, nuclear proliferation, with an emphasis on Iran, North Korea and Pakistan, and global warming.
The Bilderberg group takes it name from the hotel in Holland where the group met in 1954, during the earliest period of its inception. Bilderbergers meet regularly, presumably on a once-a-year basis, at various locations around the world, always in extreme secrecy, often at resorts controlled by either the Rockefeller or Rothschild families. The Rothschild family is the leading European force within the Bilderberg Group, sharing its power with the American-based Rockefeller empire.
Bilderberg maintains an extremely low profile and seldom, if ever, publishes reports or studies for the public, at least, under its own official aegis. Participants denied the groups very existence for decades until it was forced into the open by the glare of media publicity, generated largely by the now defunct Spotlight newspaper.



4. Illuminati, fact or fiction?

DID THEY EVER EXIST?
The historical proof of the Illuminati's formation in 18th Century Bavaria, Germany was clearly recorded in the Bavarian state records and by conscientious freemasons. Secret papers explaining their aims of subverting religions and national governments were exposed as a scandal at the time. The most measured and entertaining historical exposé of the Illuminati's conception and subsequent takeover of freemasonry in English is probably John Robison's 1791 book Proofs of a Conspiracy against all governments and religions.
DO THEY STILL EXIST TODAY?
At least one - please search the net for more - US author Texe Marrs has in his possession a certificate of membership of a modern secret society calling itself the Illuminati.
HOW ARE THEY FINANCED?
Illegal drug trafficking, mostly in opium and cocaine, production of heroin and crack-cocaine. Also, intelligence black budgets which have been removed from democratic scrutiny. They have access, through intelligence agencies, military dictatorships such as Pakistan, to military bases, military secrets and military equipment.
ARE THE SKULL AND BONES SOCIETY AT YALE UNIVERSITY THE ILLUMINATI?
1. In both the historical Illuminati and the Skull and Bones initiates use classical pseudonyms, often from pagan classical myth eg. Spartacus or Boaz
2. Both have important US and German lodges
3. Both say "The Devil = Death, Death = Death" as part of their ritual
4. Both are secret cults with multiple degrees of initiation and blood-curdling oaths of secrecy
5. Both have satanic overtones with the ritualised use of an inverted (point downwards) pentagram.



5. THE DEATH OF FREEDOM
On the evil day that Britain's new far right Home Secretary John Reid ordered the destruction of Brian Haw's peaceful protest camp in Parliament Square I re-circulate John Pilger's urgent warning from January 2006 about fascism and the strangulation of freedom. As pretty much everyone in broadcasting knows there is there is a whispering campaign at the BBC against Pilger. Now we can all understand that was because - he's right on the ball.
By John Pilger - January 6th edition of "The New Statesman"
http://www.newstatesman.com/200601090004
http://www.parliament-square.org.uk
http://www.johnpilger.com
The rights of ordinary people to speak out against an unjust war and atrocities unleashed in their name are being crushed. Fascism is at the door. Who else, asks John Pilger, will fight it?
On Christmas Eve, I dropped in on Brian Haw, whose hunched, pacing figure was just visible through the freezing fog. For four and a half years, Brian has camped in Parliament Square with a graphic display of photographs that show the terror and suffering imposed on Iraqi children by British policies. The effectiveness of his action was demonstrated last April when the Blair government banned any expression of opposition within a kilometre of parliament. The high court subsequently ruled that, because his presence preceded the ban, Brian was an exception.
Day after day, night after night, season upon season, he remains a beacon, illuminating the great crime of Iraq and the cowardice of the House of Commons. As we talked, two women brought him a Christmas meal and mulled wine. They thanked him, shook his hand and hurried on. He had never seen them before. "That's typical of the public," he said. A man in a pinstriped suit and tie emerged from the fog, carrying a small wreath. "I intend to place this at the Cenotaph and read out the names of the dead in Iraq," he said to Brian, who cautioned him: "You'll spend the night in the cells, mate." We watched him stride off and lay his wreath. His head bowed, he appeared to be whispering. Thirty years ago, I watched dissidents do something similar outside the walls of the Kremlin.
As the night had covered him, he was lucky. On 7 December, Maya Evans, a vegan chef aged 25, was convicted of breaching the new Serious Organised Crime and Police Act by reading aloud at the Cenotaph the names of 97 British soldiers killed in Iraq. So serious was her crime that it required 14 policemen in two vans to arrest her. She was fined and given a criminal record for the rest of her life.
Freedom is dying. Eighty-year-old John Catt served with the RAF in the Second World War. Last September, he was stopped by police in Brighton for wearing an "offensive" T-shirt which suggested that Bush and Blair be tried for war crimes. He was arrested under the Terrorism Act and handcuffed, with his arms held behind his back. The official record of the arrest says the "purpose" of searching him was "terrorism" and the "grounds for intervention" were "carrying plackard and T-shirt with anti-Blair info" (sic). He is awaiting trial.
Such cases compare with others that remain secret and beyond any form of justice: those of the foreign nationals held at Belmarsh Prison who have never been charged, let alone put on trial. They are held "on suspicion". Some of the "evidence" against them, whatever it is, the government has now admitted, could have been extracted under torture at Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib. They are political prisoners in all but name. They face the prospect of being spirited out of the country and into the arms of a regime which may torture them to death. Their isolated families, including children, are quietly going mad. And for what?
Between 11 September 2001 and 30 September 2005, 895 people in total were arrested under the Terrorism Act. Only 23 have been convicted of offences covered by the act. As for real terrorists, the identities of two of the 7 July bombers, including the suspected mastermind, were known to MI5, yet nothing was done. And Blair wants to give the security services more power. Having helped to devastate Iraq, he is now killing freedom in his own country.
Consider parallel events in the United States. Last October, an American doctor, loved by his patients, was punished with 22 years in prison for founding a charity; Help the Needy, which helped children in Iraq stricken by an economic and humanitarian blockade imposed by America and Britain. In raising money for infants dying from diarrhoea, Dr Rafil Dhafir broke a siege which, according to UNICEF, had caused the deaths of half a million under the age of five. John Ashcroft, the then US attorney general, called Dr Dhafir, a Muslim, a "terrorist", a description mocked by even the judge in a politically motivated travesty of a trial.
The Dhafir case is not extraordinary. In the same month, three US circuit court judges ruled in favour of the Bush regime's "right" to imprison an American citizen "indefinitely" without charging him with a crime.
This was the case of Jose Padilla, a petty criminal who allegedly visited Pakistan before he was arrested at Chicago airport three and a half years ago. He was never charged and no evidence has ever been presented against him. Now mired in legal complexity, the case puts George W Bush above the law and outlaws the Bill of Rights. Indeed, on 14 November, the US Senate in effect voted to ban habeas corpus by passing an amendment that overturned a Supreme Court ruling allowing Guantanamo prisoners access to a federal court. Thus, the touchstone of America's most celebrated freedom was scrapped. Without habeas corpus, a government can simply lock away its opponents and implement a dictatorship.
A related, insidious tyranny is being imposed across the world. For all his troubles in Iraq, Bush has carried out the recommendations of a Messianic conspiracy theory called the "Project for the New American Century". Written by his ideological sponsors shortly before he came to power, it foresaw his administration as a military dictatorship behind a democratic facade: "the cavalry on the new American frontier", guided by a blend of paranoia and megalomania. More than 700 American bases are now placed strategically in compliant countries, notably at gateways to sources of fossil fuels and encircling the Middle East and central Asia. "Pre-emptive" aggression is policy, including the use of nuclear weapons. The chemical warfare industry has been reinvigorated. Missile treaties have been torn up. Space has been militarised. Global warming has been embraced. The powers of the president have never been greater. The judicial system has been subverted, along with civil liberties. !
The former senior CIA analyst Ray McGovern, who once prepared the daily White House briefing, told me that the authors of the PNAC and those now occupying positions of executive power used to be known in Washington as "the crazies". He said: "We should now be very worried about fascism."
In his epic acceptance of the Nobel Prize in Literature on 7 December, Harold Pinter spoke of "a vast tapestry of lies, upon which we feed". He asked why "the systematic brutality, the widespread atrocities, the ruthless suppression of inde- pendent thought" of Stalinist Russia were well known in the west while US state crimes were merely "superficially recorded, let alone documented, let alone acknowledged".
A silence has reigned. Across the world, the extinction and suffering of countless human beings can be attributed to rampant American power, "But you wouldn't know it," said Pinter. "It never happened. Nothing ever happened. Even while it was happening it wasn't happening. It didn't matter. It was of no interest."
To its credit, the Guardian published every word of Pinter's warning. To its shame, though unsurprising, the state television broadcaster ignored it. All that Newsnight flatulence about the arts, all that recycled preening for the cameras at Booker Prize-giving events, yet the BBC could not make room for Britain's greatest living dramatist, so honoured, to tell the truth.
For the BBC, it simply never happened, just as the killing of half a million children by America's medieval siege of Iraq during the 1990s never happened, just as the Dhafir and Padilla trials and the Senate vote banning freedom never happened. The political prisoners of Belmarsh barely exist; and a big, brave posse of Metropolitan police never swept away Maya Evans as she publicly grieved for British soldiers killed in the cause of nothing except rotten power.
Bereft of irony, but with a snigger, the newsreader Fiona Bruce introduced, as news, a Christmas propaganda film about Bush's dogs. That happened. Now imagine Bruce reading the following: "Here is delayed news, just in. From 1945 to 2005, the United States attempted to overthrow 50 governments, many of them democracies, and to crush 30 popular movements fighting tyrannical regimes. In the process, 25 countries were bombed, causing the loss of several million lives and the despair of millions more." (Thanks to William Blum's Rogue State, published by Common Courage Press.)
The icon of horror of Saddam Hussein's rule is a 1988 film of petrified bodies of people in the Kurdish town of Halabja, killed in a chemical weapons attack. The attack has been referred to a great deal by Bush and Blair and the film shown a great deal by the BBC. At the time, as I know from personal experience, the Foreign Office tried to cover up the crime at Halabja. The Americans tried to blame it on Iran. Today, in an age of images, there are no images of the chemical weapons attack on Fallujah in November 2004. This allowed the Americans to deny it until they were caught out recently by investigators using the internet. For the BBC, American atrocities simply do not happen.
In 1999, while filming in Washington and Iraq, I learned the true scale of bombing in what the Americans and British then called Iraq's "no-fly zones". During the 18 months to 14 January 1999, US aircraft flew 24,000 combat missions over Iraq; almost every mission was bombing or strafing. "We're down to the last outhouse," a US official protested. "There are still some things left [to bomb], but not many." That was seven years ago. In recent months, the air assault on Iraq has multiplied; the effect on the ground cannot be imagined. For the BBC, it has not happened.
The black farce extends to those pseudo-humanitarians in the media and elsewhere, who themselves have never seen the effects of cluster bombs and air-burst shells, yet continue to invoke the crimes of Saddam to justify the nightmare in Iraq and to protect a quisling prime minister who has sold out his country and made the world more dangerous. Curiously, some of them insist on describing themselves as "liberals" and "left of centre", even "anti-fascists". They want some respectability, I suppose. This is understandable, given that the league table of carnage by Saddam Hussein was overtaken long ago by that of their hero in Downing Street, who will now support an attack on Iran.
This cannot change until we, in the west, look in the mirror and confront the true aims and narcissism of the power applied in our name, its extremes and terrorism. The usual double standard no longer works; there are now millions like Brian Haw, Maya Evans, John Catt and the man in the pinstriped suit, with his wreath. Looking in the mirror means understanding that a violent and undemocratic order is being imposed by those whose actions are little different from the actions of fascists. The difference used to be distance. Now they are bringing it home.


AFTERWORD


Lingering questions about Robin Cook's death
http://shaphan.typepad.com/blog/2006/05/questions_about.html
I would rather not be having these thoughts but, as I am, I reckon it's time to commit them to writing. This extended entry builds upon 'Robin Cook, the Database and Secrets', which itself derived from 'Warning to Labour Politicians' (and the thread began with 'John Prescott and National Security'). It raises questions about Robin Cook's death, ones I've not seen addressed elsewhere. In life, I was never Cooky's biggest fan. But if there were the slightest possibility that his death was not naturally caused, then the man deserves better than for the official version to be believed without question.




Robin Cook's epitaph - final article explained how pointless War on Terror is and that Al Qaeda is a creation of the CIA
http://www.bilderberg.org/nwo.htm#epitaph
Bin Laden was, though, a product of a monumental miscalculation by western security agencies. Throughout the 80s he was armed by the CIA and funded by the Saudis to wage jihad against the Russian occupation of Afghanistan. Al-Qaida, literally "the database", was originally the computer file of the thousands of mujahideen who were recruited and trained with help from the CIA to defeat the Russians. Inexplicably, and with disastrous consequences, it never appears to have occurred to Washington that once Russia was out of the way, Bin Laden's organisation would turn its attention to the west.


Marek Tysis' Bilderberg 2006 analysis
http://www.bilderberg.org/2006.htm#marek
Globalization is not from the 20th or 21st century. It is as old as the 15th or 16th century. The medieval Knights Templar were the first ever multinational corporation. Every move in Globalization has been about reshaping the World, or giving a global plan of control or a 'New World Order'. Behind the scenes, imperialism has been sharing the natural bounty of the world to the profit of its upper class, the Plutocracy. The rich who so much want to have one absolute rule of this world.

 

 

 

 

 

         

       

Bilderberg Conferences

The Bilderberg conference is the most powerful political and economic gathering on earth. Incredibly the world's press are never informed that the meeting is happening until it is over. If they do find out it is happening they are not allowed near the conference while it is taking place. There are a handful of journalists inside, one is the editor of The Economist, but they never mention the meeting in their publications.

This year's dates and venue have now been revealed.

Jim Tucker has heard what he believes to be good evidence that this year's conference will be in Alberta, Canada in the first two weeks of June 2006. The last conference to be held in North America was the 2002 conference at Chantilly, Virginia so it's about time the conference was back on the West side of the Atlantic again.

Leaks from the Westfields Marriott in 2002 suggested that Bilderbergers were pushing hard behind the scenes for the invasion of Iraq - roughly a year before the disasterous, illegal and bloody occupation began.

Dear Tony,

I am a Bulgarian journalist who is interested in world affairs. I sometimes use your website for reference although I don't necessarily support some of your views.

I would like to share with you a piece of news that may reveal the venue of the B'06 meeting.

The Austrian Ambassador to Bulgaria Dr. Karl Diem boasted recently that his country will host a visit by US President George Bush in June. As this is the final month of Austria's EU Presidency, it may be an excuse for the other Bilderbergers to come along.

I hope my contribution will be helpful to your pursuits.

Best regards,

Vladimir Dvoretzky

Secretive power brokers meeting coming to Ottawa?

Wednesday, May 24, 2006

OTTAWA - The meetings of a secretive global think-tank would bring 100 of the world's most powerful and influential figures to Ottawa next month and make an Ottawa hotel the host of deliberations on such weighty issues as the direction of global oil markets and potential military action against Iran.

Reports circulating on the Internet say this year's Bilderberg Conference will be held June 8-11 at the Brookstreet Hotel a rumour the hotel would not confirm.

But, if a gathering in Ottawa is anything like past Bilderbergs, invitees will be drawn from the pages of International Who's Who, with a emphasis on political and corporate leadership and strong representation of the oil and banking industries. Guest lists typically include names like Kissinger, Rockefeller and Soros.

The obsessive secrecy that accompanies Bilderberg conferences could also draw Ottawa into the insane conspiracy theories that surround the group. The Bilderberg has been accused of being everything from a Zionist cabal building a single global government to a secret star-chamber that seeks to fix the price of oil and presidential elections.

Even some rational critics suspect the Bilderberg's meetings set the economic and political agenda for much of the industrialized world without any public oversight or accountability. They denounce the Bilderberg as elitist and overly secretive, calling it an anti-democratic gathering of ''the high priests of globalization.''

The conference takes its name from the Hotel de Bilderberg in the Netherlands, site of the first meeting in 1954. The group's intent was to link governments and economies in Europe and North America amid the Cold War. But its mandate has evolved, and it now exerts a global influence with interests in foreign policy in general and energy in particular.

Several Canadian political figures have spoken at Bilderbergs, including prime ministers Pierre Trudeau and Jean Chretien, New Brunswick premiers Bernard Lord and Frank McKenna, and former Ontario premier Mike Harris.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper's office would not say Tuesday if he's been invited to attend the rumoured Ottawa meetings. Harper attended the 2003 conference in Versailles, France.

Patrice Basille, general manager of the Brookstreet Hotel, said no event associated with the Bilderberg group has been formally booked at the hotel. He said two conferences, one out of Montreal and another out of Toronto, are booked for the weekend of June 8.

''What is the Bilderberg?'' he asked. ''This is the first I've heard about it.''

Journalists aren't allowed to attend the sessions, and staff at the host hotels are told not to confirm or deny any event is scheduled.

Not all of the attendees are comfortable with the pervasive secrecy, says U.K.-based journalist Tony Gosling, who runs a website devoted to uncovering the Bilderberg secrets (www.bilderberg.org). There is enough leakage from past conferences to determine generally what is discussed, he said.

''There is pretty much a preoccupation with the Middle East and oil at most of the meetings,'' he said. ''The whole idea is to meet a consensus, but it is a fairly narrow consensus. Most of the banking power in the Western world is behind Bilderberg policy, and particularly their energy policies.''

Gosling said two issues will likely concern the Ottawa meeting: How to deal with Iran's alleged nuclear threat, and the direction of Venezuela's oil industry under the leadership of leftist President Hugo Chavez.

The website americanfreepress.net reported Tuesday that Bilderberg was coming to Ottawa. Gosling said several of his sources have also confirmed the date and location.

Canada last hosted the conference in 1996, when participants invited by newspaper publisher Conrad Black gathered at a resort north of Toronto.

Bilderberg to Meet in Canada

http://www.americanfreepress.net/html/bilderberg_to_meet_in_canada.html

By James P. Tucker Jr.

The secretive group known as Bilderberg will hold its annual secret meeting at the posh Brook Street Resort a few miles from Ottawa, Canada, June 8-11.

The location and part of the agenda was disclosed to American Free Press by a source inside Bilderberg's inner circle.

High on the Bilderberg's secret agenda this year are oil prices and the political upheaval in Latin America. When meeting last year in Rottach-Egern, Germany, Bilderberg called for dramatic increases in the price of oil. Oil prices started climbing immediately from $40 a barrel to $70.

Whether Bilderberg will call for still higher prices is unclear, but Henry Kissinger and others had gleefully anticipated ultimate prices at $150 a barrel a year ago. Bilderberg is certainly concerned about supply, which is related to the "Latin American problem," as one insider said.

Approximately 120 international leaders in politics and finance will also discuss the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, which has caused a rare breach between American Bilderbergers and their European counterparts since the United States Iraq invasion in 2003. Whether the United States should invade Iran is also high on the agenda.

Bilderberg is especially concerned about Venezuela, where as part of a plan to increase revenues from its petroleum industry President Hugo Chavez said May 7 he would impose a new tax on companies that extract oil from his country. Big Oil is represented at Bilderberg by Jeroen van der Veer of The Netherlands, chairman of the Royal Dutch/Shell Group and Franco Bernabe of Italy, vice chairman of Rothschild Europe, among others. "We are going to create a new oil tax, called the tax on extraction,"

Chavez said. "The companies that are pumping oil in Venezuela are making a lot of money."

Chavez accused foreign oil companies of exploiting his country's vast petroleum reserves without paying sufficient taxes. Venezuela is the world's fifth-largest oil exporter but has troubled oil barons by sending cheap petroleum to needy American families and subsidizing domestic use so local citizens pay 12 cents a gallon.

Venezuela has voided oil-pumping contracts with private companies at 32 fields and replaced them with a mixed-company model that gave Venezuela's state-owned Petroleos de Venezuela SA a minimum 60 percent stake. Chavez has also sharply raised royalties and taxes, and reduced potential drilling acreage by almost two-thirds. He is also resisting expansion of NAFTA throughout the hemisphere, a prime Bilderberg goal.

Chavez's outspoken criticisms of the United States make it unlikely that American Bilderbergers can help smooth over the supply problem. However, banker David Rockefeller's family has always had a heavy interest in oil and other investments in South America.

President Bush will have a top White House aide representing him at Bilderberg, and high officials of the state, defense and treasury departments will attend. Heads of state and other high officials in government and banking will attend from Europe and Canada.

Bilderberg's agenda also includes the turmoil in the Middle East, nuclear proliferation, with an emphasis on Iran, North Korea and Pakistan, and global warming.

The Bilderberg group takes it name from the hotel in Holland where the group met in 1954, during the earliest period of its inception. Bilderbergers meet regularly, presumably on a once-a-year basis, at various locations around the world, always in extreme secrecy, often at resorts controlled by either the Rockefeller or Rothschild families. The Rothschild family is the leading European force within the Bilderberg Group, sharing its power with the American-based Rockefeller empire.

Bilderberg maintains an extremely low profile and seldom, if ever, publishes reports or studies for the public, at least, under its own official aegis. Participants denied the groups very existence for decades until it was forced into the open by the glare of media publicity, generated largely by the now defunct Spotlight newspaper.

 


8-11th June Ottawa 2006: Bilderberg 2006 and the Killers of Freedom

from PEPIS #75

Venezuela and Iran, two great global 'problems' which, backed by most of the private money in the world, Bilderbergers will attempt to 'solve' in Ottawa next month. The public's majority view however, which they will scrupulously ignore, is that Venezuela and Iran represent two great bastions of freedom which have defended the views of their respective populations and refused to bow to the totalitarian dominance of the biggest war machine the world has ever seen and the fascist Project for a New American Century.

This year, the tenth I have covered Bilderberg, credit for pinpointing the venue is shared between Jim Tucker in Washington and Brussels activist Marek Tysis' scrutiny of Turkish language website, islamdevleti.org. Hearty thanks to everyone. Henry Kissinger and his co-conspirators edge closer every year to their goal of stopping ANY coverage of what is plainly the most powerful political and economic congress in the world. What BBC online called 'The Ultimate Conspiracy Theory'.

Those who enquire about Bilderberg's power are expected to wait with baited breath for an incomplete list of participants, delivered as the last luminary's car leaves the hotel. I know embarrassingly powerful people are removed because I spoke to the woman who served Tony Blair his breakfast at Turnberry in 1998. He was not on that year's list. I suppose Kissinger and friends get some kind of cheap 'kick' smuggling their superstars in and out.

If leaks are correct, this year's meeting will involve a 'dance macabre' celebrating the outbreak of 'democracy' in Iraq where only 80 people a day are shot dead or blown up and looking forward to repeating that 'success' in Iran. In secret session just a stone's throw from the Skull and Bones' Deer Island in the St. Lawrence river, they will bemoan the 'sectarian divide' and forget that the al-Askariya congregation in Samarra, wiped out in February, was one of those many mosques where Shi'ite and Sunni worshipped together.

So which 'faction' was responsible for killing their own people? Or was it the SAS, caught a few months earlier with explosives and dressed as arabs, or the CIA or Mossad who really destroyed that holy place and killed over 160 people? This is the equivalent of having the SAS demolish Westminster Cathedral and blaming it on Arabs. Think on.

Not since Dr Goebbels in the 1940's has the Western public been subjected to such daily repeated lies right across the news media about Iran, the Western plutocrats' latest 'rogue state'. In an incredible feat of myopia, the BBC scrupulously fails to mention that Iran is keeping to the letter of the Non-Proliferation Treaty, which Israel with its bristling nuclear arsenal still refuses to sign.

How easily the BBC mandarins have scrapped their motto - Nation shall Speak Peace unto Nation - as they fire off volleys of pseudo-intellectual cover for another round of carnage. Hundreds of thousands, even millions more Islamic murders are in prospect. In the vilest betrayal BBC Current Affairs managers and editors have turn a blind eye to the fate of the Jews just sixty years ago.

Meanwhile their fellow travellers at Bilderberg prepare to rotate their palms towards us, smile, and explain that they are nothing more than an innocent private club. Kissinger, Rockefeller and the rest will be crossing their fingers behind their back and hoping we don't notice the ten wealthiest bankers, five most prestigious European royals, four richest oil men, three biggest media barons (now minus bang to rights Conrad Black - well done Mounties!) and a bunch of frightened politicians are dreaming up more nightmares to poison our children's future.

Rather than the old silence, the New Labour press here in the UK, The Guardian now paints Bilderberg as the victim, defending their right to neither confirm nor deny, doffing the cap, and failing to inform their readers that this unelected body sits at the global black heart of the capitalism they make a pretence of opposing.

As Britain's respected daily paper of the left The Guardian Jason Walsh Blog's defence last week of Bilderberg, Skull and Bones and Neo-Con puppet Blair are appalling betrayals.

http://commentisfree.guardian.co.uk/jason_walsh/2006/05/a_conspiracy_of_dunces.html

Scrupulously ignored in their and the BBC's coverage is the fact that Bilderberg's founder, recently deceased Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands was a enthusiastic member of Hitler's elite SS before World War II. Neither will they mention umbilical ties to the freemasons' 500,000 strong religious cult whose most trusted personal assistant Andrew Palmer organised the last UK Bilderberg conference.

So, do the Guardian and the BBC chiefs not know these facts? - or simply not believe them? Whichever is true both BBC and Guardian censor all my letters and comments, (this is one of the latest http://www.bilderberg.org/2006.htm#cohen ) even on the web. The most appallingly murderous right wing conspiracy in the history of our planet is being airbrushed from our consciousness.

The Guardian's editor Alan Rushbridger held back recently from fully dishing the dirt on his close friend David Mills, proven perjurer and partner of publicly exposed (on all five UK channels) money launderer Secretary of State for Culture Tessa Jowell. She has been left unharried by Metropolitan police commissioner Sir Ian Blair while she personally supervises the 'reorganisation' of the BBC board of governors.

The commons enquiry into criminal allegations of cash for peerages has somehow ground to a halt even though until someone is charged there are no restrictions on anyone discussing the subject and the committee are covered by parliamentary privilege. How these idiotic MP's were persuaded to drop their enquiry is beyond me. This means that the subject of criminal offences by top New Labour politicians has disappeared at least until late Autumn when MP's return from their summer recess.

The worm at the core of the Metropolitan Police Sir Ian Blair is not just a liar, he has also failed to question the prime suspect in the most shocking crime in the British mainland since World War II, last year's London bombings. Haroon Aswat, who US intelligence analyst John Loftus swears had access to MI6's military explosives and is known to have made several mobile phone calls to the four suspects in the London bombings just before the attacks, languishes in Belmarsh prison and is about to be extradited to Guantanamo Bay where the US authorities want to question him.

So meanwhile, back at the Bilderberg steering committee, Kissinger, Queen Bee and the rest of the gang are planning to use their obscene capital wealth for totalitarian ends of war. They have no thought or interest in feeding and house the poor of the world.

Rather than forgive strangling debt they will be doing everything in their power to use debt and their virtual private monopoly on the creation of money to acquire more and more of our world. African state water companies, Britain's Channel Three ITV network, everything our councils and our governments hold in trust for we the people, the list goes on.

We are sleepwalking into a world unfit for future generations, for our old age and human habitation. Ruled by crooked banks and corporations hell-bent on owning everything on our earth. A global plutocracy. Pinochet, Franco, Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini's dream.

So what can anyone do about it? We must all actively join the global movement against the impunity of these power grabbing crooks. To support the freedom fighters in Venezuela, Columbia, Iraq, Iran and in the USA, UK and elsewhere in the West. The crooks are protected by interlocking secret-society colleagues across the criminal justice system, but only if we let them. Victories have been few and ironically for Bilderberg this year Canadians have shown the way to bringing down Conrad Black, hater of trades unions and fraudster extraordinaire, the world has a lot to learn from the tremendous efforts of the Canadian Authorities to fearlessly arrest, charge and prosecute.

We must also prohibit all freemasons or other members of secret societies from holding any public office. The publication of full membership lists for each individual Masonic province, these follow the city and county councils here in the UK and each of the old British colonies is its own province. Provinces publish secret list of all members of that province. ALL these people must be excluded from public office as they have sworn an oath to their fellow members that precludes them from acting in the public interest.

Dare we hope for a surprise arrest warrant served by the Mounties at this year's Bilderberg? Maybe for Kissinger's role in overthrowing the democratically elected government of Chile and installing one of the 20th century's most brutal dictatorships. That would be a good start to this year's conference.

21May06 - American Free Press - Bilderberg to Meet in Canada

http://www.americanfreepress.net/html/bilderberg_to_meet_in_canada.html

22May06 - By James P. Tucker Jr.

The secretive group known as Bilderberg will hold its annual secret meeting at the posh Brook Street Resort a few miles from Ottawa, Canada, June 8-11.

The location and part of the agenda was disclosed to American Free Press by a source inside Bilderberg's inner circle.

High on the Bilderberg's secret agenda this year are oil prices and the political upheaval in Latin America. When meeting last year in Rottach-Egern, Germany, Bilderberg called for dramatic increases in the price of oil. Oil prices started climbing immediately from $40 a barrel to $70.

Whether Bilderberg will call for still higher prices is unclear, but Henry Kissinger and others had gleefully anticipated ultimate prices at $150 a barrel a year ago. Bilderberg is certainly concerned about supply, which is related to the "Latin American problem," as one insider said.

Approximately 120 international leaders in politics and finance will also discuss the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, which has caused a rare breach between American Bilderbergers and their European counterparts since the United States Iraq invasion in 2003. Whether the United States should invade Iran is also high on the agenda.

Bilderberg is especially concerned about Venezuela, where as part of a plan to increase revenues from its petroleum industry President Hugo Chavez said May 7 he would impose a new tax on companies that extract oil from his country. Big Oil is represented at Bilderberg by Jeroen van der Veer of The Netherlands, chairman of the Royal Dutch/Shell Group and Franco Bernabe of Italy, vice chairman of Rothschild Europe, among others. "We are going to create a new oil tax, called the tax on extraction,"

Chavez said. "The companies that are pumping oil in Venezuela are making a lot of money."

Chavez accused foreign oil companies of exploiting his country's vast petroleum reserves without paying sufficient taxes. Venezuela is the world's fifth-largest oil exporter but has troubled oil barons by sending cheap petroleum to needy American families and subsidizing domestic use so local citizens pay 12 cents a gallon.

Venezuela has voided oil-pumping contracts with private companies at 32 fields and replaced them with a mixed-company model that gave Venezuela's state-owned Petroleos de Venezuela SA a minimum 60 percent stake. Chavez has also sharply raised royalties and taxes, and reduced potential drilling acreage by almost two-thirds. He is also resisting expansion of NAFTA throughout the hemisphere, a prime Bilderberg goal.

Chavez's outspoken criticisms of the United States make it unlikely that American Bilderbergers can help smooth over the supply problem. However, banker David Rockefeller's family has always had a heavy interest in oil and other investments in South America.

President Bush will have a top White House aide representing him at Bilderberg, and high officials of the state, defense and treasury departments will attend. Heads of state and other high officials in government and banking will attend from Europe and Canada.

Bilderberg's agenda also includes the turmoil in the Middle East, nuclear proliferation, with an emphasis on Iran, North Korea and Pakistan, and global warming.

The Bilderberg group takes it name from the hotel in Holland where the group met in 1954, during the earliest period of its inception. Bilderbergers meet regularly, presumably on a once-a-year basis, at various locations around the world, always in extreme secrecy, often at resorts controlled by either the Rockefeller or Rothschild families. The Rothschild family is the leading European force within the Bilderberg Group, sharing its power with the American-based Rockefeller empire.

Bilderberg maintains an extremely low profile and seldom, if ever, publishes reports or studies for the public, at least, under its own official aegis. Participants denied the groups very existence for decades until it was forced into the open by the glare of media publicity, generated largely by the now defunct Spotlight newspaper.

 

 


Where is the eliteworld? The 71st letter

Amsterdam, May 10 2006

J Steenis

Dear reader, this is the 71st Letter of an Autonomous Thinker

Everybody should know that a small group of super-rich people that live on the safe and privileged eliteworld (far from our often harsh massworld) takes decisions without and over us.

In 1968 Ferdinand Lundberg for example wrote the book "The rich and the super-rich" (Bantam Books 1968) in which he pinpointed many of the super-rich and also described what they did with the money they had amassed.

But, though it can be interesting to know who the top people of the world are, this knowledge will not transform the world. Therefore human activity is needed. I propose that masspeople invade the eliteworld. Then the elite will be confronted with the "other people". Decisions should not be taken in favour of a small group of already privileged people but to advance all humanity. See for example my concept of the action method Creative Disturbance, http://members.chello.nl/jsteenis/violencedemocracy19.htm  .

The central question is not how many super-rich there are but where they are. Where is the eliteworld and what can masspeople do to unite the massworld with the eliteworld to get the New World on which everyone has equal status.

The eliteworld is an isolated part of our earth where masspeople are not welcome. In the massworld die for example each year five million children because they do not have enough food to survive. Problems as inadequate food, housing or schooling that can easily be solved only exist in the massworld. They are non-existent in the eliteworld.

But where is the eliteworld?

Let's assume that most masspeople earn less than 4000 euro a month and that elitepeople have mostly a much higher income. (The amount of 4000 euro is arbitrarily and some masspeople will earn more while some elitepeople temporarily can earn less than this amount).

When you earn less than 4000 euro per month you cannot afford to stay in 5-star hotels, to travel first class on a plane (or possess your own jet), to have security guards to protect you and your possessions, to buy a car of 200.000 euro or a house of 2.000.000 euro. You cannot become member of a golf club that ask a 100.000 euro a year, to shop in Bangkok when you are living in Europe or to sit on the best places on the Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix. You cannot afford to pay 500 euro for a diner, 20 euro for a glass of beer or wear clothes that cost 10.000 euro a piece. You are not allowed to enter the elite world because you have not enough money.

I could lengthen this litany about things elitepeople can and masspeople cannot afford. Many things are exclusively reserved for people with money. Our world looks unified but in some places you see only elitepeople.

Elite- and massworld are separated from each other. Some masspeople are allowed to enter the eliteworld as servants, as a lesser kind of humans that makes the life of elitepeople more comfortable. These masspeople are not considered to be real people. Elitepeople do not have a human conservation with the butler and the rest of the personnel is even more invisible.

I only give a vague idea where the eliteworld can be found. Maybe later I will give more details but I think that everybody can discover where the eliteworld is. There live the people with power, there decisions are taken. But most actions take place in the massworld as is the case with demonstrations and other actions in front of official buildings (when the top of the elite is never targeted). I call on masspeople to invade those elitist places they are not allowed to enter. Only then the road to One World for all people will be opened.

Most political analysts concentrate on the question who the elitepeople are that reign over the masses, who the Illuminati are, who the members of the Bilderberg Group are. I concentrate on the reason why they want to be on top of the world. They only want to have the power to remain forever in the agreeable eliteworld that is far from the often not so very nice massworld. I propagate to invade the eliteworld in order to confront the elite with the fact that there are more humans on our earth than elitepeople. They should be drowned in the sea of masspeople. And because there are more than a hundred masspersons for each eliteperson, it must be possible to get a New World on which all people have equal status.

Yours truly, Joost van Steenis

15Apr06 - Martin Kelly Blog - A Request Under The Freedom Of Information Act

I have sent the following e-mail this afternoon to the UK's Department of Constitutional Affairs:

http://martinkelly.blogspot.com/2006/04/request-under-freedom-of-information.html

Dear Sirs,

I wish to make a request for information under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 relating to Edward Balls MP.

Before his election to Parliament in 2005, Mr. Balls served as Chief Economics Adviser to HM Treasury, a Civil Service position, between 1999 and 2004. During that period he is also reported to have attended three meetings of the international non-governmental forum commonly referred to as 'The Bilderberg Group'.

The first was reported to have been held between May 24-27 2001 in Gothenburg, Sweden -

http://www.global-elite.org/elitewiki/index.php?title=Bilderberg_2001_May_24th-27th

The second was reported to have been held between May 30-June 2 2002 in Chantilly, Virginia, USA -

http://www.global-elite.org/elitewiki/index.php?title=Bilderberg_2002_May_30th_-_June_2nd 

The third was reported to have been held between May 15-18 2003 in Versailles, France -

http://www.global-elite.org/elitewiki/index.php?title=Bilderberg_2003_May_15th-18th 

On all these dates Mr. Balls held what was presumably a non-political role within the Civil Service, and received his remuneration from the public purse.

I request that the following information be supplied to me:

1. Confirmation of whether or not he attended these events;

2. If he did, a full record of all that was discussed at these meetings; and

3. Again, if he did attend, why Mr. Balls in particular was selected for these assignments.

I would also wish clarification of the following two matters:

1. If Mr. Balls did attend, why a civil servant was present at a forum which appears to have no basis in any law, treaty or protocol, either national or international; and

2. Confirmation of what Her Majesty's Government understands the nature and purposes of the Bilderberg Group to be, and why it is deemed appropriate for a taxpayer-funded public servant to be despatched to their meetings for several days, when presumably there might be matters of domestic administration to which they might otherwise be attending and for the performance of which they are receiving salary. Copies of that body's constitution and rules of procedure are also requested. "

I've given them my solicitors' contact address details, and told them I'll be posting it on the blog.

They have 20 working days to get back to me.  We shall see what the outcome is.

I am not afraid to admit that I'm actually a little afraid.

Why Milosevic Was Murdered

Monday, 13 March 2006

http://www.wnymedia.net/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=1137&Itemid=35

http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/march2006/130306milosevicmurdered.htm

Tinpot dictator blew the whistle on the New World Order

Paul Joseph Watson/Prison Planet.com

Slobodan Milosevic was a distasteful man with authoritarian Communist ideals. But the reasons for his murder revolve around his evergreen willingness to blow the whistle on the global criminal masterminds who had made the mistake of giving 'Slobo' a speaking platform in the first place.

Just two days after Milosevic's death the evidence indicating murder has poured in.

- Milosevic wrote a letter one day before his death claiming he was being poisoned to death in jail. The lawyer who advised Milosevic during his trial, Azdenko Tomanovic (pictured below) , showed journalists a handwritten letter in which Milosevic wrote: "They would like to poison me. I'm seriously concerned and worried."

- Blood tests show that Milosevic's body contained a drug that rendered his usual medication for high blood pressure and his heart condition ineffective, causing the heart attack that led to his death.

- The media has spun this to make out as if Milosevic deliberately took the wrong drug so he could seek specialist treatment in Moscow and delay his trial. This is frankly absurd. Milosevic only had access to the drugs provided to him by UN appointed doctors and took them under close surveillance. Are we to believe that Milosevic had managed to set up a secret drugs lab in his closely watched prison prison cell and then substituted the drugs while under constant monitoring?

- Milan Babic, a former Croatian Serb leader who testified against Milosevic was "suicided" just six days before Milosevic's death. According to the BBC, tribunal spokeswoman Alexandra Milenov said he had given no indication that he was contemplating suicide. "There was nothing unusual in his demeanor," she said. Another Hague detainee, Slavko Dokmanovic, supposedly killed himself in 1998.

- Allegations of suicide were dismissed by British lawyer, Steven Kay QC, who said Milosevic had told him before he was found dead: "I have not come all this way not to see it to the end."

- The Globalists have wanted to eliminate Milosevic for a long time. Former MI6 agent Richard Tomlinson said he saw documents in 1992 that discussed assassinating Milosevic by means of a staged car accident, where the driver would be blinded by a flash of light and remote controlled brake failure enacted to cause the crash. This exact same technique was utilized for real in the murder of Princess Diana.

Milosevic was a loose cannon with intimate knowledge of the criminality of the Globalists after the IMF/Bilderberg coup de 'tat in Serbia in the 1990's.

In March 2002, Milosevic presented the Hague tribunal with FBI documents proving that the United States government and NATO provided financial and military support for Al-Qaeda to aid the Kosovo Liberation Army in its war against Serbia.

This didn't go down too well at the Pentagon and the White House, who at the time were trying to sell a war on terror and gearing up to justify invading Iraq.

Milosevic made several speeches in which he discussed how a group of shadowy internationalists had caused the chaos in the Balkans because it was the next step on the road to a "new world order."

During a February 2000 Serbian Congressional speech, Milosevic stated,

"Small Serbia and people in it have demonstrated that resistance is possible. Applied at a broader level, it was organized primarily as a moral and political rebellion against tyranny, hegemony, monopolism, generating hatred, fear and new forms of violence and revenge against champions of freedom among nations and people, such a resistance would stop the escalation of modern time inquisition. Uranium bombs, computer manipulations, drug-addicted young assassins and bribed of blackmailed domestic thugs, promoted to the allies of the new world order, these are the instruments of inquisition which have surpassed, in their cruelty and cynicism, all previous forms of revengeful violence committed against the mankind in the past."

Milosevic was far from an angel, but evidence linking him to genocides like Srebrenica, in which 7,000 Muslims died, was continually proven to be fraudulent. In fact, Srebrenica was supposedly a 'UN safe zone', yet just like Rwanda, UN peacekeepers deliberately withdrew and allowed the massacre to unfold, then blamed Milosevic.

Milosevic's exposure of UN involvement in the Srebrenica massacre was another reason why tribunal transcripts were heavily edited and censored, and another contributing factor towards his murder.

20Feb06 THE HUNT FOR SECRET GLOBAL MEETING IS ON

http://www.americanfreepress.net/html/secret_global_meeting.html

AFP'S JIM TUCKER BEGINS QUEST FOR BILDERBERG

By James P. Tucker Jr.

American Free Press is busily engaged in the annual ritual of hunting down the Bilderberg Group, which will hope to meet in secret this spring. When the last rock is turned over and their location and meeting times unearthed, AFP readers will be the first in America to know.

Some sources believe Bilderberg will meet near Innsbruck, Austria, as it did in 1988. Others think somewhere in North America, as Bilderberg has a number of times over the years. Adding weight to this theory is that it is North America's 'turn' to host Bilderberg.

Typically, the power elite meets in Europe for three years, then in North America. The last Bilderberg meeting on this side of the pond was in Chantilly, Va., in 2002.

Uncovering the secretive group of international financiers and political leaders is a difficult annual challenge. A year ago, the precise location and date in Germany were finally uncovered by journalist and AFP collaborator Danny Estulin of Spain. AFP Managing Editor Christopher J. Petherick had to call this sleuth in the middle of the night and tell him to 'grab his other pair of socks' and head to Dulles Airport in northern Virginia.

In 2000, when yours truly was with the now defunct Spotlight, it was positively determined that Bilderberg would meet in the area of Brussels, Belgium, June 1-3. But the precise location was unclear.

I was standing at the Men's Bar in the National Press Club, bag packed and waiting for the shuttle bus to Dulles, when the break came. An old friend who was involved in international commerce and who was personally acquainted with many Bilderberg luminaries, had, as usual, been helping in the search.

He called me with the precise location. I then called the news office and the front page of the newspaper was taken apart and put together again to reflect the breaking news.

This old Bilderberg hound is hoping we don't have to cut it that close this year. But it gets tougher every year and I'm keeping a week's supply of clean shirts on hand at all times.

INSIDE BILDERBERG

And although I'm not usually such a shameless self-promoter, I would recommend that every AFP reader purchase my book, Jim Tucker's Bilderberg Diary. In this 280-page book I recount the adventures I have had tracking down Bilderberg and crashing their party every year (almost) for the past 25 years.

I've also included dozens of exclusive photos snapped by me and my colleagues of the meetings and which few-if any-other Americans besides the readers of this paper and The Spotlight have ever seen. I think you'll especially like the photo with me and Maggie Thatcher, who agreed to a private meeting with me after she realized Bilderberg was more than a 'tea and crumpet' party. She came out publicly against Bilderberg after that and was the victim of a Bilderberg campaign to have her defeated in herre-election bid as Britain's prime minster.

Bilderberg doesn't like it when 'their own' expose the group. There's lots more in the book but I wouldn't want to ruin all the surprises for you. By the way, the proceeds from the purchase of the book will go to help fund my travel expenses and the other costs AFP incurs bringing you these exclusive Bilderberg reports.

Jim Tucker's Bilderberg Diary: One Reporter's 25-Year Battle to Shine the Light on the World Shadow Government is available from AFP, 645 Pennsylvania Avenue SE, Suite 100, Washington, D.C. 20003. Or call 1-888-699-NEWS. Get your copy for just $18 (reg. $24.95) if you mention - Jim Tucker sent me.

08Feb06 - Canadian PM's successful Bilderberg interview before getting 'elected'

Greetings from Canada,

I cannot thank you enough for your excellent coverage and website of the Bilderbergers and their nefarious activities which has been an eyeopener.

Have you noticed that our new "Christian" "Conservative" PM Stephen Harper attended the Bilderberg conference just a couple of years ago?

Methinks we are in for much closer ties and probable merger down the line with the leaders of the terrifying neighbours to the South.

Val.

 


The Denmark Cartoons

Anwaar Hussain - Fountainhead - February 7, 2006

http://www.uruknet.info?p=20377

http://www.arabamericannews.com/newsarticle.php?articleid=4384

http://malakandsky.blogspot.com/2006/02/denmark-cartoons.html

The derogatory cartoons that have the Islamic world in throes of violent protests were first published in September 2005 by Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten. They were later republished in Austria in January, and then at the beginning of February in a number of European newspapers in France, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy and Spain.

There have since been angry and sometimes violent protests across the Islamic world, Britain and France. At least six deaths have been reported thus far. A hornets’ nest has been stirred with the end of the rapidly escalating crisis nowhere in sight.

Has it all happened innocuously and accidentally or is it a deliberate attempt towards an ulterior motive?  To answer this question let us go back in time to May 2005.

Only four months before the crisis, between May 5 to May 8, 2005, a group of powerful men from today’s finance, industry and politics huddled together in the warm and cozy rooms of the 5-star Dorint Sofitel Seehotel Überfahrt in Rottach-Egern, Germany. Outside the hotel, private and state guards patrolled with automatic weapons and sniffer dogs. The gray Bavarian skies rained on.

This secretive cabal of powerful men otherwise goes by the name of Bilderberg Group (a simple Google query will throw up thousands of results). The Bilderberg Group is the only private international organization that Time magazine rated 10 for secrecy on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being most secret).

So what do the defamatory cartoons have to do with the Bilderbergs? Let us first have a look at the names of just some of the attendees of the May 2005 conference. These were;

Josef Ackermann, Chairman, Group Executive Committee. Deutsche Bank AG, Germany

Joaquin Almunia Amann, Commissioner, European Commission

José M. Durno Barroso, President, European Commission, Portugal

Franco Bernabe, Vice Chairman, Rothschild Europe, Italy

Martin S. Feldstein, President and CEO, National Bureau of Economic Research, U.S.A.

William C. Ford, Jr., Chairman and CEO, Ford Motor Company, U.S.A.

Timothy F. Geithner, President, Federal Reserve Bank of New York, U.S.A

Donald E. Graham, Chairman and CEO, The Washington Post Company, U.S.A.

Richard N. Haass, President, Council on Foreign Relations, U.S.A.

Jaap Hoop de Scheffer, Secretary General, NATO, Netherlands

Allan B. Hubbard, Assistant to the President for Economic Policy and Director of the National Economic Council, U.S.A.

John M. Keane, President, GSI, LLC; General, US Army, Retired, U.S.A.

Henry A. Kissinger, Chairman, Kissinger Associates, Inc., U.S.A.

Neelie Kroes, Commissioner, European Commission

Michael A.Ledeen, American Enterprise Institute, U.S.A.

William J. Luti, Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Near Eastern & South Asian Affairs, U.S.A.

Jessica T. Mathews, President, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, U.S.A.

Kenneth B. Mehlman, Chairman, Republican National Committee, U.S.A.

Elena Nemirovskaya, Founder and Director, Moscow School of Political Studies, Russia

Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands

Andrzej Olechowski, Leader Civic Platform, Poland

Norman Pearlstine, Editor-in-Chief, Time Inc., U.S.A.

Richard N. Perle, Resident Fellow, American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research, U.S.A.

Friedbert Pflüger, Member of Parliament, CDU/CSU Fraktion, Germany

H.R.H. Prince Philippe, Belgium

Rato y Figaredo, Rodrigo de, Managing Director, IMF

David Rockefeller, Member, JP Morgan International Council, U.S.A.

Judith Rodin, President, The Rockefeller Foundation, U.S.A.

Dennis B. Ross, Director, The Washington Institute for Near East Policy, U.S.A.

H.M. the Queen of Spain

Peter D. Sutherland, Chairman, Goldman Sachs International;

Jean-Claude Trichet, Governor, European Central Bank

James D. Wolfensohn, President, The World Bank, U.S.A.

Paul Wolfowitz, President designate, The World Bank, U.S.A.

And of course there were the usual prime ministers and U.S. government officials. Also present were the movers and shakers of the Western media including media heads from almost all the countries whose press chose to publish the insulting cartoons. The names of Messers Michael Ledeen, Richard Perle and Paul Wolfowitz, however, must ring some bells. (Click here for the complete list)

Also on the list of attendees was one Anders Eldrep from Denmark. Anders Eldrep (sometimes spelled as Eldrup) happens to be married to one Merete Eldrep. This lady is the managing director of company JP/Politikens Hus (JP for Jyllands-Posten) that published the slanderous anti-Islamic cartoons in Denmark.

Neither Anders Eldrep is an ordinary Tom, Dick or Harry nor his wife exactly a babe in woods not to have understood the repercussions of their actions.

Merete Eldrep, the wife, is a former Head of Secretariat at the Ministry of Economic and Business Affairs and Deputy Director of the Danish Energy Authority.

And Anders Elderp, her illustrious husband, is the current Chairman of Denmark’s Oil and Natural Gas Company DONG and has been Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Danish Finance up to the year 2001. He also has attended the last FIVE Bilderberg meetings thus far. Interestingly, a previous editor-in-chief of 'Politiken', another of JP/Politikens Hus's newspapers, namely Toger Seidenfaden, too was a long-time Bilderberger.

Now a little more about the Bilderberg Group.

In a rare interview given to BBC, Etienne Davignon, 73, the chairman of the Bilderberg Group and a former Belgian diplomat and European Commissioner, dismissed claims that the Bilderberg Group is part of a global conspiracy to rule the world by a self-selected elite of movers and  shakers. His dismissal is as natural as publicly admitting the cabal’s sinister agenda would have been unnatural. Please read the interview to form up your own opinion. In my judgment the sole aim of the group is implementing a Euro-American, some say Anglo-American, blueprint of a New World Order for the express benefit of these elites.

The Bilderberg discussions are structured on the principle of reaching accord rather than through ceremonial resolutions and voting. Such is the power and status of the active members that if an agreement for action is arrived at, the resulting decision is expected to be implemented in the West as a whole.

In the post 9/11 geo-political milieu particularly, the group’s aim has been to buttress the foreign policies of the governments of the United States and Great Britain or, more simply, to help execute the precise formula sold internationally by the Bush/Blair combo. This new world order, with the group’s unflinching support, is being shoved down the collective throat of the world citizenry under the guise of "global war on terrorism", and of establishing "democracy", "peace", and "freedom" in the world.

Just three quotes from the lamb talk of these Anglo-American leaders make clear enough readings of their intentions;

"Out of these troubled times [Iraq/Kuwait conflict], our fifth objective -- a new world order can emerge: a new era...We're now in sight of a United Nations that performs as envisioned by its founders." September 11, 1990 - Iraq Speech by President George H. W. Bush

"Our mission is clear: to rid the world of evil" - Pres. George W. Bush, post-Sept. 11, 2001

"Out of the shadow of this evil [9/11], should emerge lasting good... This is a moment to seize...let us re-order this world around us." - British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Oct. 2, 2001 (BBC)

My questions then;

Was this whole anti-Islamic cartoon exercise actually nothing more than an innocent attempt at promoting the much cherished cause of freedom of expression on sensitive topics---anti-Semitism being disallowed, by word or action, by law in most of the western world?

Or, given the ominous times we are in, the Muslims are deliberately being provoked, exploiting their emotionality, into presenting one seething, throbbing mass of foaming-at-the-mouths herd of rabid cavemen image for their eventual annihilation? No one, after all, cries over the mushroom clouds blotting the horizons over beastlands.

Or is the scribe being overly alarmist?

You decide.

DANISH BILDERBERG CONNEX?

Tuesday, February 07, 2006 - FreeMarketNews.com

http://www.freemarketnews.com/WorldNews.asp?nid=7020

The controversy continues over the anti-Islamic cartoons published in a Danish publication. The latest word notes that Merete Eldrup, managing director of JP/Politikens Hus, the company that published the cartoons, is the wife of Anders Eldrup, chairman of DONG (Danish Oil and Natural Gas), a currently state-owned energy provider about to be privatized.

Moreover, according to a posting on Indymedia UK, as well as several other sources, Anders has been among the attendees at the last five meetings of the Bilderberger gathering, alleged by some to be an internationalist conspiracy bent on world government.

Meanwhile, his wife, before she took over the directorship at JP/PH, was both the Head of Secretariat at the Ministry of Economic and Business Affairs, and the Deputy Director of the Danish Energy Authority. She is currently Deputy Chairman and Managing Director of the Copenhagen Business School. - ST

Microsoft Agonistes

1st February 2006 - by: Robin Bloor

http://www.it-director.com/article.php?page=0&id=13125

In 2006, Microsoft finds itself waging a war on 4 major fronts - and, for the first time in its existence, its hegemony is under threat. Here are 4 reports from our intrepid correspondents that cover the various "theatres of war".

1. The Server War

When Microsoft first invaded the server market, its initial target was the territory of Novell. A good deal of ground was captured without much of a fight, as Novell users quickly acknowledged that there was a new power in the land and decided to get on with life rather than indulge in heroic resistance. Admittedly there were some hold-outs but Microsoft could happily ignore them, while it planned and then initiated its thrust into Unix.

Here resistance was much greater, although Microsoft's blitzkrieg tactics and rapid flanking movements put the allied forces of Unix on the defensive and ultimately saw them losing territory as the campaign proceeded. Microsoft's powerful weaponry (Exchange, SQL Server, IIS, SharePoint, etc.) was difficult to resist and until the Unix allies introduced the Linux weapon, it looked as though most of Serverland would find itself under Microsoft occupation.

Right now the campaign is intense with Microsoft recently introducing a more robust SQL Server into the fray, in the hope of capturing a good deal more of the high ground. Intelligence reports suggest that in 2006 Microsoft will introduce further improved weaponry. In particular, Microsoft has been plagued by security problems, its security codes being regularly broken and its enemies have exploited this in spectacular fashion on occasion, winning back territory that Microsoft had once occupied. Rumour has it that Microsoft is finally about to fix this sorry weakness, its major problem being whether it can get its security technology deployed without losing further ground.

2. Open Source - Le Résistance

The partisans, the marquis, the resistance, the Open Source Movement - call them what you want, they are a thorn in Microsoft's side in many of its operations. The pattern is repeated again and again; economic sabotage that undermines the profitability of many Microsoft activities and threatens its hold on long established territory.

A loose association of idealists, free-thinkers and bloody-minded revolutionaries, the Open Source Movement is proving to be more formidable opposition than many commentators imagined it could ever be - what is left of the Novell regime has clearly thrown its lot in with them and there can be little doubt that the allies (particularly IBM, HP and Oracle) are keeping them supplied and fed.

It is no surprise then, that this resistance movement has attracted the wrath of Obergruppenfuhrer Ballmer and set the Microsoft propaganda machine in motion - condemning them as communists and terrorists. As far as we can tell, there is little that Microsoft can do to keep them under control and diminish the threat. In the event that the allies make a major push into Microsoft territory, there can be little doubt that the resistance movement will rise up to help them.

3. The Road To www.Moscow.com  (as illustrated by Google Maps)

At the outset of the Internet campaign, Microsoft's quick and dramatic victory was stunning to the allies. The Netscape forces under General Andreessen were utterly unprepared for the force of the Microsoft attack. Indeed General Andreessen's dream of marching his forces right on to the Microsoft desktop disappeared in the first few days of the campaign as his forces collapsed and retreated in disarray.

The purge of the dot coms followed and General "search-and-destroy" Schmidt took control of the Internet forces as Microsoft's armies laid siege to Yahoo.com and Google.com. The forces of the Internet revolutionaries looked to be in deep trouble. Nevertheless, it gradually became clear that Microsoft's forces were overextended and ill equipped for the commercial climate of the Internet, where revenues are scarce and the extreme conditions are merciless on the technology.

Indeed the attack on Google.com petered out quickly, as it became clear that much of the Microsoft technology was unusable in the harsh Internet climate and the forces of General Schmidt clearly understood the terrain far better. As I write, the MSN division is surrounded and unlikely to hold out for long. All across the wide plains of the Internet Microsoft forces are in retreat and fighting a rear-guard action as they fall back to the desktop and Serverland.

Personally, I doubt if General Schmidt's forces will stop at the borders. If they get that far, they will surely march on Redmond.

4. Disquiet On The Western Front

Historians will probably conclude that Microsoft should have eliminated Apple in the wake of the battle of the GUI, while it was possible. Apple's defeat saw it retreat behind its borders, almost isolated from the corporate market and subject to a constant blitz of proprietary standards.

Occupying no more than a few percent of the desktop, it seemed unlikely that Apple would hold out for long, but Microsoft - diverted by its Internet campaign - chose not to invade, when it was possible. Perhaps Bill Gates should have read his Machiavelli more thoroughly: "Never wound an enemy, except fatally."

The tide has now turned. Redmond was clearly shocked by the timing and the success of Operation iPod, which saw Apple deploy its retail division in a classic flanking attack and establish a well-supplied beachhead on territory that Microsoft had occupied for years. Microsoft's media division and its Windows division, somewhat demoralized by security breaches, have so far been unable to respond to the threat in a coherent way. If they don't act soon then Apple too may take the battle to Redmond.

Enough

Enough of this WW2 parallel. Microsoft is fighting a war on multiple fronts. It has built a hugely successful business based on lock-in and drag-along that is being threatened as never before. 2006 is the year when its true mettle will be tested. On the positive side it has a pipeline of new software updates with which to drive business, including the long awaited and very late Windows Vista. It is still immensely profitable and sits on an enviably large cash pile.

But the force of fashion is no longer on its side. Watch what happens later this year when Vista is released. I expect Steve Jobs to rain on Vista's parade with style. Watch out Bill, there's a Leopard behind you.

Surfin' Safari #38 - The Bilderberg Group

The Bilderberg Group can be singled out as special among putative groups of conspirators, for two reasons. First, the group appears to be a loose association of individuals that really are powerful or at least have very powerful connections. If you wanted to create a conspiracy then you might indeed wish to approach one or two "members" of this group. Secondly, because of the way it organizes itself, the Bilderberg Group naturally attracts accusations that it is "conspiratorial".

The Bilderberg Group was founded in 1954 (a mere 50 years ago) by Joseph Retinger (an American Freemason) and Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands. As the group's activities are deliberately secret it is difficult to know much about it for sure, but as far as I can tell the following is true or close to the truth.

The goal of the organisation was and is to promote co-operation between North America and Europe at a political and economic level. Meetings of the organisation take place once or twice a year, but irregularly and they are never announced. Security is heavy and all journalists or observers of any kind are barred. Invitees consist of; bankers, industrialists, prime ministers, presidents, politicians and people of influence from Europe and North America and reportedly, around 120 or so turn up to each meeting. Attendees can thus say whatever they please, interact and influence each other.

So what do the Bilderbergers do? Well, it's obvious really. They arrange assassinations, wars, election results, weird rituals and much besides. Throughout our history, aliens have controlled the human race through various secret societies, religions, Satanic cults and occult movements and the Bilderberg Group is just one of the means by which they achieve this - its their user interface if you like. You know I could make this stuff up, but why bother when you can find it just as easily using Google.

In reality the Bilderberg Group is pretty much like the Illuminati - if you are inventing a conspiracy then its best to add them in. Google both words (Bilderberg and Illuminati) and you get 50,800 hits. They don't line up so well with Zionists (a mere 22,000 hits) and they don't line up at all with the Rosicrucians (only a handful of hits). They have a strong association with aliens (41,700 hits), assassination (43,300 hits) and surprisingly (to me) the Iraq War.

When the wacky theorists of the web aren't accusing them of nefarious activities, the Bilderbergers come under fire for encouraging globalisation, which in all probability they do, if only in an informal way. It is said that the Bilderberg Group was influential in introducing the Euro into Europe and maybe they were. They may have encouraged quite a few political developments that we've all lived through. But we can never be sure, because its activities are secret - and for that reason it's only possible to accuse them of worshiping an idol that takes the form of an owl. (Yes indeed, they are owl worshipers).

ARTGECO

More definitions from the Alternative Real Time Guide to Enterprise Computing. (Disclaimer: IT-Analysis/IT-Director takes no responsibility for anyone who takes any of these definitions seriously).

CISC

CISC stands for Complex Instruction Set Computer, which is strange because it actually refers to a type of computer chip. As everyone knows a computer chip on its own is not a computer, so CISC is a misabbreviation, or it would be if misabbreviation was a word, which it isn't.

Encapsulation

The making of pills. A similar process can be applied to software by wrapping it up in a container to stop it spilling out all over the place. In computing, it used to be called structured programming whereas in the transport industry it was called containerisation. Object oriented fanatics called it encapsulation, claimed it as an original idea and included it in the object oriented creed. It is a religious term.

War Room

In today's complex corporate computer networks with hundreds or even thousands of servers and vast portfolios of business applications, things have got so complicated that nobody actually knows how it all hangs together any more. This wouldn't matter too much if things didn't go wrong every now and then, but they do. So when something goes pear-shaped in such installations a whole host of people (network managers, DBA's, system administrators, performance specialists, support engineers, funambulists, etc.) need to meet up in order to indulge in group hysteria and blame-storming. The place where they congregate is usually referred to as the "war room".

Letter sent to Guardian Newspaper - my response to the article below

When conspiracy theories become facts

Part of the security services job is to discredit their critics. Nick Cohen lent them a hand on Sunday when he branded The Bilderberg Group - yet to be seriously examined by UK broadsheets - as a conspiracy theory.

Unfortunately for him, Nick's words were printed on the day before the Guardian revealed that Bush and Blair conspired to decieve the US and British people, legislature and the UN to invade Iraq. And General Sir Michael Rose is still calling for the PM's impeachment, presumably before the illegal occupation of Iran gets the green light.

Nick is doing what so many people do when confronted by a secret meeting of the western world's most rich and powerful. He puts them in a box marked 'lizard men' and runs away. Meanwhile some of us are trying to discover where and when this spring's Bilderberg meeting will be and what leaks might be forthcoming about NATO's plans to attack Iran.

In this brave new lawless world, conspiracy facts are the bread and butter of all self-respecting journalists. Only by carefully picking through the conspiracy theories will they be found.

Fascists are on the march again

http://observer.guardian.co.uk/comment/story/0,,1697269,00.html

It is impossible to write anything about Jews these days without being accused of being an anti-semite or a Zionist imperialist. I think I'll take the coward's course and look at what the victorious Islamists of Hamas think of Freemasons instead.

It was Masons, not Jews, who were the target of the original conspiracy theory of the far right. What would end up as fascism began as a reaction against the American and French revolutions. The counter-revolutionaries had to explain why people were proclaiming heretical ideas about the rights of man. They couldn't admit that the French and Americans were embracing Enlightenment values of their own free will. There had to be a conspiracy. Europe's Jews were in the ghetto in the 1790s, and it was preposterous to pretend that they were secret rulers of the world. So the far right decided that the conspirators were the Freemasons.

Hitler banned Freemasonry and General Franco executed thousands of Spanish Masons. You get an idea of how thoroughly the ideas of the European reaction have penetrated the Middle East when you look at the loathing of Masons on the Arab far Right.

Article 22 of Hamas's covenant says of the Jews: 'They were behind the French Revolution, the communist revolution and most of the revolutions we heard and hear about, here and there. With their money, they formed secret societies, such as Freemasons, Rotary Clubs, the Lions and others in different parts of the world for the purpose of sabotaging societies.'

I know Iraqis who had to run for their lives when Saddam Hussein accused them of being part of a Masonic plot. Last year, the Telegraph reported that Ahmad Thomson, a Muslim lawyer who advises the Prime Minister on community relations, had declared that a 'sinister' group of Jews and Freemasons was behind the invasion of Iraq.

Everything from the ravings of the Iranian leadership to the genocide in Darfur makes a little more sense if you grasp that parts of the poor world have taken up the insane theories of European fascism. And as Europeans ought to know by now, you need to be very worried when the men who spout them get into power.

No stone left unturned

I'm not being sarcastic when I say that one of the pleasures of being a journalist are the letters and emails I receive from readers. They make you reconsider prejudices and confront issues you had complacently ignored.

The exceptions are the ravings of conspiracy theorists. The sinister forces behind their plots vary - Freemasons and the Jews, reptilian aliens, the Bilderberg Group and the Illuminati - but on one point they are unanimous: the intelligence services are in league with their persecutors and are tapping their phones and opening their mail.

Dear God, but what have our chaps in Moscow done? Did they stop to think of the consequences of making stones in the park objects of suspicion? From now on, newsrooms will be getting letters in green ink from paranoiacs claiming that MI6 has turned their rockeries against them.

Part I - East and West on Collision Course

Globalization is not from the XX th or XXI th century. It is as old as the XV th or XVI th century. Every move in Globalization has been about reshaping the World, or giving a global plan of control or a 'New World Order'. Behind the scenes, imperialism has been sharing the natural bounty of the world to the profit of its upper class, the Plutocracy. The rich who so much want to have one absolute rule of this world.

From this old, old experience of world domination, and this plan of the ages, the Upper classes were obliged to give some apparent democratic power to people in America and Europe in the late XVIII th century to replace the constitutional monarchy in England, after the Civil War of England during the XVIIth century and the reign of the Lord Protector Cromwell who gave an economic advantage to England against the Dutch, but was a dictator. Although different parts of the world were in touch during this phase of Globalization, no idea of shaping a common world in values was apparent. In fact all points of the globe were subject to the domination of European countries as contributing factors for the Western Economy. England was intent to destroy indigenous customs in the legislation inside these countries, for example imposition of the English concept of the private ownership of land, but other Western countries were applying their own legislation without restriction.

The infamous and abhorrent human slave trade, abolished in 1807, was a key contributor to maximum productivity and competitiveness of these regions. With the development of industry, colonies were kept as an hinterland which permitted certain plutocrats to carve themselves out mini-monopolies in the competitive global system, but this advantage was costing the nations too much in building the infrastructure of civilisation: roads, ports, schools, teachers, hospitals, medicine and so on...in the colonies. On the other side, some of these colonies were bringing soldiers to the fronts in World War I. (as in WWII).

World War I was a destructive conflict seeing the plutocrats of the World springing from the internal contradictions of capitalism. That helped the conflict to take place while the workers representatives were negotiating the entrance to war. Jean Jaures, the French socialist wanting an agreement between all the workers not to participate in the war was assassinated before the war, while Kautsky, ,German socialist counterpart of Jaures, negotiated the acceptance of the German war with the then " elite".

The result of this war was the entrance of the US economy in the world's sphere. The banque de France lost all its gold reserves while England was badly weakened. Germany was an economic ruin and the policy of reparations helped America to shape the German economy. As an example of that, let us say that before the first war, all the Chief countries of the world had currencies based on gold. The gold standard was a great gift of Providence. The war arrested and broke up this monetary cosmopolitanism. After the outbreak of the war some governments withdrew gold from internal circulation and replaced it with printed money. Each note was overprinted.

At the close of the war the practical monetary solidarity had disappeared and the overprinting of paper money continued. Each sovereign power was struggling with its own monetary problems and nobody was thinking of organizing an international conference about it. Each power was trying to get the better of the others. Each big money power resolved to get something kind of victory over the others. Up to there London banking was an international service centered in London . The City, through out its gold standard free trading period had existed not for Britain but for the world. All was now changed. These countries knew all about inflation! Impossible reparation payments in gold was imposed upon the Germans and the USA was building great hopes upon the debts reckoned in gold owing to her by its war allies for munitions supplied in the common effort.

America returned to gold standard in 1919. The more the price of gold came down, the more the repayments were onerous. In 1920, the prices in USA were 247% of those in 1913. In Britain the gold standard was still in suspense and Britain was using paper money; prices were 324 % of 1913 and the pound note was at a level of inferiority (247/324) to the gold dollar. In America there was a legal restriction of credit. At the end of the year, prices were then at 42% of what they had been in the month of May, 1920. Prices remained stable up to the year 1929...In England, there was such a credit restriction with the effect that the pound, in four years from 1920, got parity with the US dollar. This involved a restraint upon the business and a gigantic transfer of wealth from the producing to the creditor classes. The people who bought War loans, for instance, received interest in pounds of more than double the purchasing value. USSR crashed its creditors completely, through inflation. Germany Austria, Poland and Hungary were forced to follow the same path and destroy their creditor class.

In the course of about eight years countries were returning to something resembling previous conditions. Every country except the USA was saddled with big external debts for war expenditure, payable in gold, and the USA was carrying a big internal debt on the same account. This was the turning point of the Power of America in its ascendance. The second world war took place, giving the maximum of power to the United States of America in a divided Europe and divided world, thus giving predominance to Washington. In this phase, 'independence' movements appeared, many helped by Washington, in order to take a hand on the most richness of the world.

Note this: these events were occurring after the help of Asia and Africa, was needed by the allies to win the war. In a sense, American economy and policy was planting a knife in the back of its allies. Then Globalisation was entirely redefined around the center of Washington, some nations being previously centered around Paris or London. Bandoeng was the occasion for certain countries, most of them attracted by USSR or others sincerely socialists countries, to thwart an impossible choice (1956). At the end of the Western Independence movement, and with the end of the Bandoeng movement (with the coup against Sukarno in 1965) and the maximum influence of America in Asia with the involvement of the USA in Vietnam at the same period we may define the end of the 'independent phase 'around 1968. The policy of 'investment' was clearly defined in Washington after the war (1947) in a formula which applied to the past 'coups de force' and 'coups d'etat' and was drawing up plans for the future after being well tested in the past.

The central notion is to protect and let live the American investment without any constraint. In case a band of syndicalists, communists, etc. is threatening the American investment, the marines have to come in, applying the uppermore force with the communists "terrorists". This led to a lot of interventions in south America, Cuba, St Domingo etc... In an actual world without communists, you replace these one with 'terrorists' and you get something alike, because terrorism is a 'image' replacing the hatred 'communists'. But in the civilized Western world you apply the notion of AMI or OMC to protect your investments against 'ugly' environmentalists. Let us go back to the colliding worlds.

The doctrine of anti communism by America ground to a slow halt in 1975 with as prelude, the visit of US President Nixon to China and the end of the bloody war in Indochina. The involvment of USSR in Afghanistan war is the occasion taken by America to ruin USSR. The American secret services are cleaned of anti communists.(1975)

Then in 1990, with no enemy in view, the USA step up their politics to manage the world. Their politics are centered around de-localisation and petroleum politics around the Caspian sea. They priviledge Turkey and they operate in helping their allies of Saudia Arabia and neutralize Iraq with the division in three military zones and constant bombings. Although the Oslo agreement (1993) no real truce or beginning of peace is taking place in Israel. The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) is expecting a lot from this peace. The Serbian war (1990-1999) is helping the Americans to stabilize the Balkans for the profit of the muslims to get their help in the Great Middle Orient policy defined for the South of Asia. The war in Iraq (2003) Was to be decisive. Their Afghanistan offensive in 2001 following the destruction of the Twin towers was immediately successful without carrying the germs of change.

I have to insist on this last phase, the more important of Globalism. For the first time in civilization, West has taken the terrible decision to transfer not A BIT of their industrial power, but MOST of it.... Before, investments were made into the 'colonies' but the industrial heartland was kept in America and in Europe and this should have happened because of the labour cost only and maximum profit policy. On the other side in America and Europe pressure is made to make the same profit upon the back of the remaining workers. Their policy is thought about finance maximization and exploitation of the mankind. The couple of force was acting politically together with the Eurasia policy in order to get the maximum effect of CFR man Brzezinsky's policy.

The destructive effect of that policy is under our present eyes and will be worse in the years to come. I have to develop certain concepts that will help the reader to understand that the decision maker is daily confronted with walls running against him and that a choice is to be taken every time this happens.These guys are reorienting the studies in such a way they fabricate the events and give the prepared solutions. If studied in a careful way ,and they do so, and the fact of knowing the issue is giving an extraordinary power (not only in finance) to these keymen.

PART II - TARGET IRAN: A TERRIBLE DECISION IN A TROUBLED WORLD

In fact, these guys were calculating upon a major idea: the domination of the USA over all countries of the world and initially over all regions of the world. The world domination of American cultural values was a lure for all these people making decisions. They thought the world was intending to become one with a same mind and same sensations. The rose-smelling winds of Brzezinsky's policies were blowing upon Eurasia and the Great Middle East. Everything was going in their favor. Russia was weak and no more an Empire.

So the time was to lower all wages, moving businesses to the Far Eastern world. The last dams were open and wealth flowed from the pockets of their workers towards the rich owners. In same time than delocalising, taxes's cut were voted always in favor of the Upper Class while the mansion's funds were said not to be able to finance the boomers pension. The realty principle should led people without a job to bargain their work force. This was done under a lot of regulations, Bolkenstein's project in Europe being the bogeyman, while ordnances, regulations and sometimes votes are taken in a lot of country of Europe leading to this situation and consolidating it. In the same time, the US president was trying to force the US congress to vote laws in such a way to be applied to American workers. Steinbruck, secretary of economy of Germany (SPD- socialist) has said last week than in the future there was no more reason for the State to pay any money to people who lost their jobs and this after the socialist legislation voted against the left's people under the name of a infamous German unionist, Hartz IV. In these cases, socialists are more harder than conservatives! and more cruel.

As I already said it last year, the puppets in the European governments are dancing as their masters. (I do remember that Krotchov, former leader of USSR, was one night obliged to dance upon a table on order of Joseph Stalin, and never forgot it, but he was a communist. In place we see democratic men dancing on order of Washington, revolver being replaced by a bounty of corruption)

So, the marrionettes were doing as they were told. Enthused by the success of Brzezinky 's plans and the American plan, they followed the march to a world of full homogeinity.

On July 2, 2005 the organization of Shangai decided to oust all American forces out of Asia. After a few months, and a visit of the American Secretary of defense, Mr Donald Rumsfeld, Kyrghisistan agreed to tolerate the American presence up the moment the war in Afghanistan is finished. Neighbouring Uzbekistan has only German elements on its soil. Americans are away. Iran was given a position of observer. It is now clear than Asian Powers are accepting the role of Iran as a padlock for the entire region. And no pressures will make the organisation change its views about it.

Once the deal was understood in Washington, pressure was launched against Teheran to force this country to make the 'right' decision. Threats in disguise, etc.. Expectations were made on the vote of Rafhansdjani who is a rich man specialized in petroleum to become president. The people of Iran decided otherwise and chose the actual president who shares in common with president Bush a gloomy vision of The End of the World. One being 'inspired' by God, the other one thinking he is the 12th I man (hidden one) or Mahdi. But the choice was taken in accordance with democracy, thus a bad choice.. Once the trap was no longer working, the Iranian people chose the 'wrong' man, intelligent men should have taken the decision to change plans and even tactically moving towards discussion with the new Iranian regime. It's not what we may see. Acceptatance that the world has now multi poles is not even considered in Washington. We will see details of all this in our framework about Bilderberg 2006 hereunder, but I would like the readers to note the following:

In an analysis given to the paper "Le Monde"on January 24, 2006, Thierry de Montbrial gave the same appreciation about the 'homogenous world' and the 'heterogenous world' saying the second option seems to become the true issue of the future of the world. I detected a deep pessimism from him as he explained that the future of Iran is in the hands of ...China and Russia. As I see it Russia and China will not abandon Iran, even attacked by America or Israel. But the anguish of Therry de Montbrial could mean that a bad decision has been taken somewhere in the West. Some dates as early as 22nd March 2006 have been put forward for the US/NATO forces to attack Iran. Iran is now moving its rockets trucks everyday along the borders in place of once a week. The principle of an attack was already unveiled in December 2005 by the weekly 'Der Spiegel' and the whole NATO plan was stopped then . We will come back in the part III upon the consequences of the upperclass on our world (and theirs as well) after what they did to most of us.

What is astonishing in this story is that Mr Olivier Roy, a regular Bilderberg attendant, has wrote an article last month in the daily 'Le Monde' where he declares, that the muslim reaction about the caricatures are de facto the result of the European policy in the Middle East. The guiltiness is thus European and not a word about the US diplomacy which was indeed looking the protests as if they were innocent of all that. The idea ( with a lot of hypocrisy) of mr Roy is that, living in a dangerous Mediterranean world full of muslim terrorists will force the European to take their responsibilities in securing this world with an special force ready to intervene at any moment. As far I remember, even in the Israelian wars, never Europe was forced to send troops in the region ( after 1956, America came in the process, and since then, Europe was no more acting as a belligerant party after the independence wars in Cyprus (1964), Algiers (1962-1963), Tunisia (1956).

Now Bilderberg seem to push Europe to impose the new " Mare Nostrum" US policy for the profit of Washington, with European soldiers. Naturally will our political woodlouse's breeding conform their policy to the views of Washington.

PART III - RUSSIA

Let us have now a deeper look in the backgrounds of Russia. This point will certainly be a central point in next Bilderberg meeting.

The daily Pravda http://www.pravda.ru/ was delivering a real interesting article : "Russia may lose its military influence on borders due to NATO's expansion" on January 26, 2005. We may read:

< http://english.pravda.ru/main/18/88/354/16801_arms.html >

"The West continues to put pressure on Russia, trying to make the country withdraw its troops from potentially dangerous territories. The Russian Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov stated during his recent visit to Baku that Russia could possibly pull out from the Conventional Armed Forces in Europe Treaty (CFE). According to the minister, Russia may end its membership in the treaty if the West continues to insist on the withdrawal of the Russian military contingent from Georgia and Moldova. The USA and several European countries accuse Russia of poor execution of obligations.

The treaty to restrict conventional armed forces in Europe was signed in 1990. According to the agreement between the members of NATO and the Warsaw Treaty the document stipulated a gradual reduction of arms deployed on the indicated territory. Russia has a right to have 6,350 tanks and 11,280 armoured vehicles on its territory. This quantity is enough to react to possible external threats. The treaty was revised in 1999 when certain quotations for the deployment of arms were fixed.

The new version of the treaty is highly important for Russia. The conditions of the treaty restrict the quantity of arms in the so-called flank zone. The unstable Caucasian region of Russia is included in this territory: it is obvious that Russia should concentrate more attention and weaponry in the region. The Russian military command would like to add 400 tanks and 2,420 armoured vehicles in the flank zone.

The new version of the document, however, which settles the discrepancies, is considered null and void until it is ratified by all member-countries. For the time being, the treaty has been ratified by Russia, Kazakhstan, Belarus and Ukraine. The question regarding the regulation of the old problem was raised at the end of 2005. The Russian Minister for Foreign Affairs Sergei Lavrov stated during the OSCE summit in Ljubljana that Russia and other countries participating in the treaty could lose the control over arms in Europe if the treaty remained unratified. "I do not think that someone of us would be interested in dealing with such a turn of events," the minister said.

NATO tries to postpone the solution of the problem, reminding Russia of the current problems in Georgia and Moldova, where Russian military contingents are deployed. According to Russian official, though, the alliance does not ratify the document but continues to expand eastwards setting up more and more army bases.

Russia and Georgia managed to overcome numerous problems in May 2005 and agreed to withdraw Russian bases from Batumi and Akhalkalaki. Russia undertook to complete the process by 2008.

About 1,500 Russian servicemen are still stationed in Moldova. The question of ammunition depots, which Russia will have to destroy, is much more important, at this point. Slovenia's Minister for Foreign Affairs Dimitry Rupel criticized Russia. The official stated that he could see no excuses for the ongoing neglect of duties: "We still argue about the agreements achieved in Istanbul in 1999 regarding the withdrawal of Russian forces from Moldova," Rupel said.

NATO's growing number of members (Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Slovenia have recently become members of the alliance) complicates the dialogue. New members do not participate in the Treaty on the Conventional Armed Forces in Europe. NATO may soon deploy its troops in the Baltic states against the background of its movement from Central to Eastern Europe. "

As we see it, homogeneity of the world is still practiced by America and Europe. More, although the broken illusions of Mr Thierry the Montbrial, it seems than the machine is going on to the course of a collision with Russia, in the name of a Global world. I will give you an evidence of this and I ask you to pay some attention to the evidence:

"SECURITY THROUGH DIALOGUE AND CO-OPERATION "

31/01/2006, Brussels.

As Belgium is president of OSCE in 2006, an inaugural conference organized by the government AND THE ROYAL INSTITUTE FOR INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS will take place on January 31, 2006."

As the old borders doesn't exist anymore and that the European and Eurasian landscape is moving quickly, the OSCE is heavily involved in a institutional reform mechanism...the conference is organized to make OSCE a regional chief in security matters, with its state members, may adapt its role in the new environment."

The speakers will be the secretary of foreign affairs from Ukraïne, M. Borys Tarasyuk. Panels will be presided by: Mr Etienne Davignon, Président of the belgian IRRI and by the professor Jan Wouters, of the catholic university of Leuven.

  • Chair : Mr. Etienne Davignon (President, Bilderberg Group)
  • Mr. Vladimir Chizhov, Ambassador, Permanent Representative of Russia to the European Union : "Reform and New Perspectives"
  • Prof. Victor-Yves Ghebali, Institute of International Studies, Geneva : "The Ljubljana OSCE Reform Agenda: Towards Brobdignac or Lilliput ?"
  • Mr. Marc Perrin de Brichambaut, Secretary general of the OSCE Closing address: Mr. Pierre Chevalier, Special Envoy of the Chairman in Office

As you may see it, Russia will be a central question to be treated not only by the Belgian of the OSCE in 2006, but by more powerful people who favour the 'worlds in collision' option because they stand to gain from it. A lot of evil may come from this situation.

I have here above described the mechanism at work with this central and important question and the views of the one and others. It is well known but terrible fact that what the Russians say is ignored by the Western media.

PART IV - DEVELOPMENTS - NEAR EAST AND FAR

These are both non conclusive wars and Afghanistan is now demanding more and more Nato forces. To say that Europe is now embroiled in the heartland of Eurasia in the last preparations of a long, long war. A recent declaration of mr Karzai is speaking of a war of possibly ten years. This will be a Nato charge. The Great Middle East policy is now taking the straight road of failure. Mr Sharon is still incapacited and there are no big policy makers in Israel to impose some kind of peace. Hamas is the winner of 25th January elections in the Palestinian State. This may not help...In Egypt , the Muslim Brotherhood is the real winner of the last elections. In Lebanon , the Hezbollah is still keeping its weapons and sometimes using them upon Israel. Last elections in Iraq, which took a month to count, resulted in an inconclusive Shiites win.

This is not at the brink to help any democratic system. I have to say that all these countries know more about democracy than most. They all inherited parliaments from their colonisers before the Americans came.... In such a way, we may understand the despair of the State Department about this trend, where NGO money favours the rise of non democratic movements. To that, president Bush is answering that " these guys once in a parliament are obliged to accept the democratic system.". A recent declaration of Shtaransky says that: "Peace Will Only Come after Freedom and Democracy"

The Palestinians after Arafat: Democracy and Freedom from www.meforum.org 

Sharansky: There is progress today in the Middle East because the most dangerous regime, that of Saddam Hussein, has been removed. Saddam Hussein's Iraq gave legitimacy to terrorist groups across the Middle East. Saddam's was a regime that used human life to break the will of the free world. That the West allowed Saddam's regime to continue to hold his people hostage for so many years, encouraged dictators and terrorists worldwide, and discouraged potential dissidents within Iraqi society. But today the situation has changed. The death of [Yasir] Arafat also creates new possibilities.

MEQ: How strong is the will for political change among the Palestinians? Sharansky: Whenever people are given an opportunity not to live in constant fear, not to live a life of doublethink, they choose freedom. If given the opportunity, the Palestinians can progress toward democracy. They have a strong middle class. They have special business opportunities in the free world. Palestinians are adroit observers of Israel and understand the functioning of democracy. The Palestinian diaspora is well educated. All of these factors provide hope for a speedier transition. There is no doubt that the change of leadership resulting from Arafat's passing creates opportunities. Whether Palestinians seize these opportunities is another question.

MEQ: In The Case for Democracy you write that "Palestinians, like every people, are capable of building a free society." Does Israel have any role or responsibility to help create the conditions for a free Palestinian society?

Sharansky: Israel has a special interest in Palestinian democracy because only with democratic development among Palestinians and in the Arab world will Israel enjoy peace and stability. We can complain as much as we want about the lack of freedom and the lack of democracy among the Palestinians and other neighbors, but we should never forget our role. Israel and other nations in the free world tried to turn a Palestinian dictatorship into a partner. Many Israeli and American policymakers thought that a Palestinian dictatorship would bring stability. We were not ready to support any form of dissent in the Arab world and among the Palestinians because we believed it would weaken the Palestinian Authority and any chance for peace. Israel, the United States, and other free nations need to realize that they can play a very positive role, but that their choices can also be harmful for democracy.

MEQ: You also wrote that free elections can only take place in an atmosphere devoid of fear and only after the basic institutions that protect a free society-such as a free press, the rule of law, independent courts, and political parties-are firmly in place. Can the Palestinian Authority elections meet these criteria?

Sharansky: We should have no illusions that the elections that will take place in January [2005] will have anything to do with democracy. Elections that are not free, that are not held in a free society have nothing to do with democracy.

MEQ: Are Palestinian elections at all worthwhile?

Sharansky: Elections are worthwhile, but casting votes in and of itself is not enough. Democracy can only start when the new leadership selected in these elections embraces reform. A lot depends on our policy. If we embrace a leadership that embraces reform, or if we refuse to give any legitimacy or support to a leadership that refuses to bring democracy and reform, then there is a serious chance for success. In the upcoming Palestinian election, different faction heads will decide the candidates in advance. Voters will not really have the freedom to express their opinions. The leadership selection has nothing to do with democracy, but it is important that this selection take place as soon as possible.

MEQ: What should happen then?

Sharansky: We should not pay too much attention to who will be the next Palestinian leader, but we should pay attention to what we demand of this leader. The first steps towards democracy will be after elections and not before.

MEQ: Is your opposition to the Gaza disengagement plan a matter of principle, or are you concerned over its practical implementation?

Sharansky: Questions of principle and practical matters are always connected for me. I was against the disengagement plan not because I believed we should stay in Gaza but because one-sided concessions could transform Gaza into a beachhead for a terrorist state. If a Palestinian democracy developed, then a Palestinian state would not be dangerous. As I said many years ago, it is very important that the depth of our concessions match the depth of democracy on the other side. If disengagement were linked to democratic reforms, I would be all for this plan. But I object to any plan that leaves territory for terror."

From that we are certain that the American administration with the help of the UE has a lot of work to do from the Palestinian mess .

As this file is still open, we may understand that it will yet figure in the agenda of Bilderberg 2006. The presence of mr Haass will be certain. After the Hamas results and the financial and political boycott which followed, we may only be certain that our political quibblers over the US domination will try to use the money donations to change the actual situation. As we see it a democratic vote is not forcibly democratic. Yet another conclusion: the Near East they were handling has become another powderkeg.

The Force of Liberty- and its opposite- Guantanamo and Abu Graïb

As last year's Bilderberg meeting had, as speakers, Mr Henry Kissinger and Anatoli Sharantsky talking about 'Expanding Freedom' This doctrine centered about the work of an NGO in central Asia has been legally blocked by the Russian Douma and the counter offensive of Moscow after the New Alliance forged inside the Shangai Organisation on July 2005 against the Zbrezinsky 'Eurasia' operation. On this occasion, Iran was invited as an Observer and will acquire this stature permanently in 2006.

What we have to understand is that this ploy has ended. More, the opening of such kind of discussion will be immediately counter balanced by the Guantanamo and Abu Graib problems with the 'rendition' program.

We may infer from that, this subject will not be open at Bilderberg 2006 because of the high potential of dissidence between Europe and USA. This will be meddled with the theme 'Russia'. As far as the complete legal resolution of Guantanamo Concentration camp is not legally solved although the demands of Angela Merkel and other Western heads, the subject could be dangerous for the 'Allies'.

Asia and China

As the defense of Taïwan is being the priority of Bush administration, China is going on with its quick rate of development. This rate demands China secure its raw material resources.

We have seen last year a lot of bilateral contracts between China and Africa countries as well as South American ones. In Africa, China is practicing the gift option, to say give a sum of money to help these countries, instead of giving under 'structural adjustment' conditions as the IMF is doing. In these conditions, African countries are willing to work with this sort of guys and China is becoming the first export destination at the detriment of France, for instance. This explain as well last year 'gift' by IMF towards commonwealth countries of Africa.

As China's sources of material and petroleum are only commercial ones, without political ideas, and that the general idea is about free trade and neo liberalism, not free-speech, nothing can be made to block the trade. Mr Snow, American secretary of the Treasury, wanted another revaluation of the Chinese Yuan. He got a big surprise: On January 7, 2006 by a declaration of the Central bank of China, written in Chinese on the bank's web site, the governor was quietly declaring that China will in the future not buy as much US dollars federal notes as it did in the past.

You may imagine the result of such declaration. Ten days after, the governor declared that it was a 'mistake' that was corrected. Let us call it an a 'friendly advice' towards the American intentions.

The fact is that today ONLY HALF of the Chinese reserves are in USD. The buyings of China plus the crisis of Iran is helping petroleum and associated material to get more expensive.

PART V - ECONOMIC PROBLEMS

The American way of solving its immediate economic problems was always done with a downward trend in interest rates at the long term. This has permitted to Americans to endebt themselves and go on with consumption buying. We have seen this mechanism play in 1997, 2000. Every time when the mechanism is working, Americans are able to renegotiate their debts and diminish their debt, thus be able to buy again. American landscape is a real machine to give credit to the people. This is helping people with a house to take a credit advantage upon the increase of the value of their house.

But a lot of qualified Americans are without work , due to globalization consequences of delocalisation and outsourcing.

People who are recovering a job are non qualified people for at least 70 % of the job created. Concurrence from Mexican workers and outsourcing are allowing big business to put a brake on the wages. The biggest problem in the American economy are now the commercial and payments deficits. It is commonly accepted by international bankers that if chock happens it will be fatal to the US economy. As reported by R. Leuschel, a former ING Bank guru and other sources of informations, M3 will no more be published by the Federal reserve end of March.

This is meaning that this important figure showing the real inflation will no more given to the appreciation of bankers, or stock share holders. Bernbank is possibly a 2006 guest of Bilderberg.

This could be the answer to any major event which may come. Another powder keg!

EU-US RELATIONS

Under the auspices of the 'fight against terrorism' and secret agreements taken with USA, Europe is developing special laws which undermine democracy in Europe ,as in America. The fight for democracy is now a fight towards tyranny on the two sides of the Atlantic Ocean. The whole thing is placed in a common interest towards the dominance of the upperclass on the whole Society. In Europe as in America, flows of money are coming from the poorest towards the pockets of the richest. The 'new elite' [ as Napoleon should have said it, is looking like a silken stocking, full of shit] is considering charity as inutile, as the poors. [a great thought from mr Greenspan] because the poors do not deserve charity.

In Europe and in the USA , we are slowing going toward a fight between the fierce men and the new Fascist state practizing a new kind of morale that we last saw in the Republic of Salo, 1944.

The end of communism in 1990 was the beginning of this new turn, as in 1920 in England.

A future potential powder keg, even if these societies are condemned to fascism by the richer of them.

CONCLUSIONS

As far as it is difficult to give the exact future of the discussions, I presented the important themes of this year venue ( I did not spoke about 'Energy and Oil' because a real good idea of it was given last year by Daniel Estulin, although this theme will again be debated this year with new options in nuclear development and society new options.).

As a confirmation of all this, Suez under the menace of a OPA from Enel Italy, was obliged to make an alliance with Gas de France , under the auspices of the French governement. What is spiced in this story is that France will own 34% of the shares of the new company. So the Champion of Bilderberg and of neoliberalism, mr Davignon, is obliged to work with the French State! This is certainly not amusing for him in company of Mrs Mestrallet and JP Hanssen of Electrabel. Anyway as I previous told it, the energy future in Europe will deal with atomic electricity production, and new atomic centrales. This is a certainty!.

In any case, neo liberalism has proven his mephetic role in creating a lot of poverty worldwide but keeping safe the interests of the richers. Their ambition is to rule upon us, kept as poors and slaves of their willingness. If the cake is growing enough they surely will share it between them!(As usual)

As last year, my appreciation will be subjected to the subjects of the new conference as delivered in the official Bilderberg list. Last year I was not too far from the official topics ( I forgot the non proliferation problem spoken by Therese Delpech and her ideas about the new barbarians)... But you and me know who are the new barbarians!

14Jan06 - Halifax Live - Powerful Men
Who Meet Secretly and Plan

http://www.halifaxlive.com/content/view/412/32/

Written by D.L. McCracken

Saturday, 14 January 2006

Sometime later in 2006 the 52nd meeting of the Bilderberg Group will begin and continue over a period of four days in a five-star hotel resort. In attendance will be no more than 100 of some of the west's chief political movers, business leaders, bankers, industrialists, strategic thinkers and even a trusted journalist or two. All participants will be absolutely forbidden from disclosing what they discussed during the four days although the invited journalists are provided with a vague press release for the curious.

For instance, last year's Bilderberg Meeting which allegedly took place at the Dorint Sofitel Uberfahrt hotel near Munich, Germany dealt with such wide-ranging topics as American-European relations, Russia, Iran, Iraq, the Middle East, Asia, economic problems and nuclear nonproliferation. No details will ever be known as will be the case this year.

When the four-day meeting is over various minor tidbits of information will make mostly non-mainstream news and conspiracy theorist’s websites which is exactly what the Bilderbergers want to occur - their thinking is as long as the conspiracy theorists keep up a constant barrage of "whacko" dialogue about the secret society, the longer their secret and their real agenda will remain safe.

The name 'Bilderberg' derives from the very first meeting of the group way back in 1954. The first group met at the Bilderberg Hotel in Holland. The first meeting was called by Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands in response to his concerns regarding the increasingly antagonistic relationship between the U.S. and Western Europe thus providing the Group with a declared purpose - to further the understanding between Western Europe and North America through informal meetings between powerful individuals. The Group has grown since that first meeting in 1954 and has met once a year every year since that time. Most of the world has no knowledge of the society or their meetings.

The Group has incorporated two official languages into their meetings - English and French. Spouses of all invitees are banned from attendance and invitations go exclusively to residents of Europe and North America. The list of invitees will never be more than 100. As mentioned earlier, journalists are invited but are banned from reporting any of it and are not allowed entrance into the actual meetings. Everyone invited whether they are kings or prime ministers or world renowned business tycoons are expected and required to leave all official credentials at the door - when they enter into official discussion, they are participating as members of the human race only. Security is provided by military intelligence. Which military intelligence is not known. Of course, this only perpetuates the conspiracy theorists belief that the Bilderberg Society are the puppet masters of a New World Order and have been pulling the strings of humankind since at least 1954.

Even though this could very well be the truth, the Bilderbergers continue to feel secure and safely protected by these same conspiracy theorists, the "whackos" who no sane person would believe for a moment.

Every year before the official announcement of the next Bilderberg Meeting, the Group releases a list of the year's attendees. One might ask why such a secret society would be so foolish as to release the names of those invited. Actually it's quite simple - how else are these famous movers and shakers going to explain a mass four-day disappearance? Far better to be up front in the beginning then to say nothing and invite intrusive snooping later.

There has been no mention of the dates for the 53rd annual Bilderberg Meeting of 2006 and subsequently, no list of this year's attendees. But to place the meetings into even more perspective, it is quite easy to find lists of last year's meeting or the year before. Keep in mind, there is no reason supplied by the Bilderbergers as to why a specific person has been invited nor will there be. They have wisely left that supposition up to the conspiracy theorists.

So let's take a look at a few of the past and current attendees to the annual Bilderberg Meetings:

-Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld;
-Former US Deputy Defense Secretary Paul Wolfowitz;
-Henry Kissinger who helped found the Group;
-U.S. Sen. J. William Fulbright;
-Dean Acheson (Secretary of State under Truman);
-President Johnson’s Under Secretary of State, George Ball
-Nelson Rockefeller
-David Rockefeller
-Kennedy’s Secretary of State Dean Rusk
-Gerald Ford
-Prince Philip
-Lord Louis Mountbatten
-Robert S. McNamara
-Margaret Thatcher
-Lester Pearson
-Helmut Schmidt
-Donald S. MacDonald (former Canadian Defence Minister)
-Henry Ford III
-Gen. Walter Bedell Smith (former CIA Director)
-Gen. Alexander Haig
-Michael Dukakis
-Bill Clinton
-Vice President Dan Quayle
-Conrad Black
-Raymond A.J. Chretien
-Stephane Dion
-Preston Manning
-Frank McKenna
-Paul Martin (while Minister of Finance)
-Stephen Harper (while Leader of The Opposition in 2003)

While I have presented an extensive list here, the full roster goes on for pages.

Interestingly enough, no actual proof can be found that George W. Bush ever attended a Bilderberg Meeting. The closest one can come to associating Bush with the Bilderbergs is the fact that he was visiting several Bilderberg venue cities at the time of the meetings. His name however is not on any official lists.

So where does all this leave us? Really, no further ahead then the beginning. Anyone can Google 'Bilderberg' and be provided with reams of material. But not one word in all those pages will be officially sanctioned by the Group. Because they're secret. If Paul Martin or Stephen Harper were pointedly questioned about their participation in a Bilderberg Meeting, they might affirm that they were in attendance because that is public knowledge. But they will not reveal why they were invited nor will they reveal what they discussed while behind closed doors.

This bothers me. Someone at one time coined a little phrase in an attempt to sum up the Bilderberg Group and it goes like this: The Bilderberg Group is a “little clique of powerful men who meet secretly and plan..."

Scary little phrase, isn't it..

The Prince and the Nazis

The furor over Prince Harry of England donning Nazi uniform is astonishing.

There has always been a close association between the Royal Family and the Nazi Party.

The Queen's husband, Prince Philip was trained in the Hitler Youth curriculum, Nordic and Aryan myth, and eugenics.

His four brothers-in-law, with whom he lived, were all German who all became high-ranking figures in the Nazi Party.

Philip was the only boy in the family and his four sisters were considerably older than he "more like aunts than sisters" as one biographer put it. Philip lived with his sisters and their husbands because his parents had a "difficult" home life. His four brothers-in-law were all German and all became high-ranking figures in the Nazi Party.

Through the influence of his sister, Theodora, young Philip was sent to a German school near Lake Constantine that had been founded by her father-in-law, Max von Baden, and his longtime personal secretary, Kurt Hahn. Though half-Jewish, Hahn was an early supporter of the Nazi Party, and the school was a hotbed of Hitler Youth activity, Nordic and Aryan myth, and eugenics.

Philip's sister Margarita married a Czech-Austrian prince named Gottfried von Hohenlohe-Langenburg, a great-grandson of England's Queen Victoria; Theodora married Berthold, the Margrave of Baden; Cecelia to Georg Donatus, Grand Duke of Hesse-by-Rhine, also a great-grandson of Victoria; and Sophie to Prince Christoph of Hesse.

By 1935 Prince Christoph was chief of the Forschungsamt (directorate of scientific research), a special intelligence operation run by Hermann Göring, and he was also Standartenführer (colonel) of the SS on Heinrich Himmler's personal staff.

The Forschungsamt used electronic intelligence-gathering methods to police the Nazi Party, while working with the Gestapo against the Catholic Church and the Jews.

The son of Sophie and Prince Christoph was named Karl Adolf after Hitler and Prince Philip afterwards took a keen educational interest in his nephew

Prince Christoph's brother, Philip of Hesse, married a daughter of the King of Italy, and became the official liaison between the Nazi and Fascist regimes.

Philip's sister Cecilia and her husband Georg Donatus, hereditary grand duke of Hesse-by-Rhine, died in 1937 when the plane they were flying to London in crashed. It was a Junker belonging to Hermann Göring.

 


Schloß Friedrichshof - Where the Duke of Windsor's Nazi correspondence was found

Another relative of Philip was the Prussian Prince Bernhard von Lippe who joined the Nazis while studying at the University of Berlin in 1934 and worked openly in the motorised SS. According to Newsweek (April 5, 1976) it was known that Prince Bernhard was a member of a special SS intelligence unit in IG Farben and this had originally been pointed out in testimony at the Nuremberg trials.

Bernhard resigned from the SS, in 1937, when he married the future Queen Juliana of the Netherlands. Adolf Hitler forwarded a congratulatory message though Bernhard, who became a naturalised Dutchman.

Philip and Bernhard remained not just distant relatives but close friends and in October, 1961, founded the World Wildlife Fund.

In the Queen's family her Uncle, the former King Edward VIII, had considerable Nazi sympathies as did his mistress and later wife, Wallis Simpson.

Edward's and Wallis' Nazi sympathies were, in part, responsible for him being forced off the throne although the version the public got was that Wallis, as a twice divorced American, would be an unsuitable wife for a King.

In 1945 MI5 officer Anthony Blunt was sent to Germany as a personal emissary of King George VI to retrieve papers written between the Duke of Windsor and Nazi officials that, had they been made public, would probably have destroyed the Royal family.

Reproduced gratefully from: The National Socialist Movement

Many years' later it was revealed that Anthony Blunt was a Soviet spy. He was enabled for many years to maintain his position as survey of the Queen's pictures because of his implied threat to tell all the Nazi secrets of the Duke of Windsor if he were sacked.

Guardian

Saturday June 29, 2002

When the Duke and Duchess of Windsor sailed into Palm Beach, Florida, on the SS Berkshire from Nassau on April 18 1941 they were looking forward to enjoying three days of relaxation at the Everglades Club playing golf and drinking and gossiping with American high society.

Little did they know that the previous night instructions had gone out from President Roosevelt to FBI chief J Edgar Hoover to launch what was to be an extraordinary covert intelligence exercise that had to fool both the exiled royals and the US secret service agent who was guarding them.

The exercise was launched after the FBI had been passed intelligence that the duke and duchess were being used by the Nazis to obtain secrets which could wreck the allies' war effort. The US investigation became even more lurid when FBI agents interviewed a benedictine monk in a Franciscan monastery in the United States; Father Odo had once been the Duke of Wurttemberg, a minor German royal with connections to Queen Mary, the duke's mother, and her brother, the Duke of Athlone, then governor general of Canada.

He told them that a prime suspect in the investigation - Joachim von Ribbentrop, then the Nazis' foreign minister - had been the duchess's lover when he was ambassador to Britain in 1936. The minister was already thought to have been supplied with information by the duchess during the German invasion of France in 1940. Now it was suggested that there was far closer arrangement.

Father Odo told the agent: "He knew definitely that von Ribbentrop, while in England, sent the then Wallis Simpson 17 carnations every day. The 17 supposedly represented the number of times they had slept together."

He also revealed that the Duchess of Windsor had told guests at a Paris party that: "The duke is impotent and although he had tried sexual intercourse with numerous women they had been unsuccesful in satisfying his passions."

He went on: "The duchess in her own inimitable and unique manner has been the only woman who had been able to satisfactorily gratify the duke's sexual desires."

Exile

The duke was forced into exile after he abdicated as King Edward VIII in 1936. He first went with his lover, formerly the American divorcee Wallis Simpson, to France and was only later exiled again to Bahamas to keep him out of the way.

By the time the US president authorised the intelligence operation, the couple had been deserted and snubbed by the royal family and the British establishment. They were suspected of favouring the Nazis after they visited Germany in 1937 and were entertained by Hitler and other senior Nazis.

A year after war broke out, the FBI sent a memo to President Roosevelt outlining the agency's worries about the couple. It stated: "It has been ascertained that for some time, the British government has known that the Duchess of Windsor was exceedingly pro-German in her sympathies and connections and there is strong reason to believe that this is the reason why she was considered so obnoxious to the British government that they refused to permit Edward to marry her and maintain the throne.

"Both she and the Duke of Windsor have been repeatedly warned by representatives of the British government that in the interest of the morale of the British people, they should be exceedingly circumspect in their dealings with the representatives of the German government. The duke is in such state of intoxication most of the time that he is virtually non compos mentis. The duchess has repeatedly ignored these warnings."

When war broke out, the duke, a serving officer, had been posted to France to liaise between the British and French armies. But the secret memo, on September 13 1940, reports that an informant had "established conclusively that the Duchess of Windsor has recently been in touch with Joachim von Ribbentrop and was maintaining constant contact and communication with him."

"Because of their high official position, the duchess was obtaining a variety of information concerning the British and French official activities that she was passing on to the Germans."

After the Germans invaded northern France in May 1940, the couple fled to Biarritz in the south. But the FBI noted that the Nazis were able to score a propaganda coup by broadcasting that the "increasing successes of the German armies" had compelled the couple to retreat to a Biarritz hotel. Within minutes of checking in, Berlin radio announced their hotel room number because the unnamed informant "had ascertained that the duchess had informed von Ribbentrop of her itinerary, schedule, etc, prior to her departure from their villa."

The couple then travelled to Spain in June 1940 "but the communications between the duchess and von Ribbentrop were apparently facilitated because of the pronounced Nazi sympathies in Spain."

In July 1940, the pair moved to Portugal where the duke made indiscreet remarks that Britain stood little chance of resisting a German invasion and may as well try to settle for peace with the Germans. Ribbentrop, encouraged by these remarks, hatched a plot to lure the Windsors into German hands.

But Winston Churchill had arranged for the duke to become governor of the Bahamas in August 1940.

"The British were and are always fearful that the duchess will do or say some thing which will indicate her Nazi sympathies and support, and consequently it was considered absolutely essential that the Windsors be removed to a point where they would do absolutely no harm," wrote the FBI in the memo, one of a batch of 227 pages released to the Guardian under the US freedom of information act. The FBI believed that the Bahamas were selected to prevent the duchess from coming into contact with British officials and scooping up more secrets to leak and that special precautions were taken, presumably by the British, to prevent her from "establishing any channel of communication with von Ribbentrop."

From their base in the Bahamas, the couple made frequent visits to the United States during the war. In April 1941, President Roosevelt ordered FBI agents to tail the Windsors discreetly when they visited Florida. But J Edgar Hoover was alarmed because bodyguards from another government department had been assigned to protect the couple. He warned that the bodyguards "would undoubtedly immediately detect the presence of any undercover agents, which might result in considerable embarrassment to all parties concerned".

Deal

Instead, the government arranged for the bodyguards to report back to the FBI on where the Windsors went and whom they met. An 18-page report was subsequently produced on the five-day trip.

On May 2, an FBI agent wrote to Hoover, saying that an English socialite had told an informant that he had definite proof that Herman Goering, Hitler's deputy, and the Duke of Windsor had reached a deal - "after Germany won the war, Goering, through control of the army, was going to overthrow Hitler and then he would install the duke as king of England."

The informant also stated that there was no doubt that "the Duchess of Windsor had had an affair with Ribbentrop, and that of course she had an intense hate for the English since they had kicked them out of England".

THE MAFIA, THE CIA, AND THE VATICAN'S INTELLIGENCE APPARATUS

Albert Vincent Carone is one of those people who spent his life dancing between raindrops and turning invisible wherever a shadow lingered. He existed and also didn't exist. Al Carone--unlike his near namesake, Al Capone--truly was a paradox wrapped in a mystery concealed behind an enigma.

Carone was a detective in the New York Police Department, but this didn't stop him from becoming a "made" man in the Genovese crime family. He knew all the leading Mafiosi of his day, including Vito Genovese, Sam Giancana, Santos Trafficante, Joe Colombo and Pauley Castellano amongst others. To Carone's daughter, Dee, they were all known as "Uncle". When she got married, her father arranged two different reception rooms to separate the Mob guests from the NYPD guests. But this was more window-dressing than anything else. One of Carone's principal functions in the NYPD was to act as the "bagman" in protecting shipments of CIA drugs to the various Mafia families.

Carone died in 1990 under mysterious circumstances. This followed a period of great personal disenchantment with his life, following a secretive mission to Mexico in 1985 when a large number of innocent women and children died unnecessarily. His death was horrific, reports Mike Ruppert, editor of From The Wilderness newsletter, who has investigated Carone's life story and written a special report on it (see acknowledgements).

Meanwhile, another "Uncle" was Bill Casey, Director of the Central Intelligence Agency during the Reagan Administration. Casey had been with the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) during World War II. During the 1970s, he became Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) which regulates the US investment industry. During his tenure in that role, Casey used Carone as a "cut out" to pass sensitive insider information to Mob capo Pauley Castellano, says his daughter, Dee.

Carone was also a Full Colonel in the US Army, where he had operated in the Army's Counter Intelligence Corp (CIC). Unsurprisingly, in view of his close friendship with Bill Casey, he was also a covert operative for the CIA. But that wasn't half of it. Carone was also a Grand Knight of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta (SMOM), which historically has been the military arm of the Vatican and is regarded as a separate State with full powers of statehood, including issuing its own diplomatic passports.

In more recent decades SMOM has acted as a funding conduit, a black market gold channel and money laundry for the CIA, amongst others, and is known to act as the Vatican's intelligence arm. It was alleged to be involved in, for example, the disappearance of Russia's gold reserves--over 2,000 metric tonnes--which vanished during 1991, around the time that Soviet Premier Mikhail Gorbachev was ousted from office.

Malta knighthoods are awarded to many leading individuals who are part of the military and intelligence community. The CIA's Bill Casey, for example, was a Knight of Malta. Former NATO General and later US Secretary of State Alexander Haig is also a Malta Knight. Another is General Vernon Walters, the former Deputy Director of the CIA under DCI George Bush, and later appointed a roving ambassador during the Reagan Administration. The legendary head of the OSS (the WWII precursor of the CIA), "Wild" Bill Donovan, was made a Knight along with his wartime compatriot and later CIA Chief of Counterintelligence, James Jesus Angleton. And John McCone, another prominent member of the US "spook" agency, was also distinguished with a Malta knighthood. The list goes on. Most interesting is Reinhard Gehlen, the former Nazi intelligence expert recruited by the US in 1945&endash;46 to head the Gehlen Org--a secret, German-based intelligence arm of the United States that was composed of former SS and Gestapo agents, many of whom, including Klaus Barbie, were wanted Nazi war criminals. The foregoing names amount to a listing of some of the most powerful and influential members of the Western intelligence community over the last five decades.

One Vatican group that has extremely close ties to the Knights of Malta is the ultra-right-wing Opus Dei. This is an immensely powerful faction in the Vatican today, and its public "do good" activities eclipse a plethora of the darkest political and financial machinations known to man. It will not come as a surprise, perhaps, that Carone was closely associated with Opus Dei and, in particular, with a covert operation that had its origin back in 1944. This was Operation Amadeus.

FROM RATLINES TO DRUG SMUGGLING ROUTES

This highly secretive operation was part of the Operation Sunrise negotiations conducted between Allen Dulles--the then senior wartime OSS officer in Switzerland, but later to become the Director of the CIA--and SS General Karl Wolff. This debonair and well-connected SS officer commanded the SS and Gestapo contingents in Italy at the time.

The result of these negotiations (at least those parts that are now known about) was an agreement affording amnesty to an extensive roster of SS&endash;Gestapo forces, in exchange for their agreement to shift their allegiance to the West in the pre-planned, covert battle aimed at defeating the Soviet communist "menace"--in other words, the "Cold War".

One spin-off of these Dulles&endash;Wolff arrangements were the Vatican-run "ratlines" that aided wanted Nazi war criminals to slink to safety. Tens of thousands of SS and other Nazis escaped capture as a result of the ratlines. These included such figures as Franz Stangl, commandant at Treblinka extermination camp, and his friend Gustav Wagner, who ran the Sobibor death camp. Others to escape in this manner included Adolf Eichmann, the architect of the Holocaust. Eichmann was later captured by Israeli intelligence agents, smuggled to Tel Aviv where he stood trial and was eventually executed. In comparison, Dr Joseph Mengele--known as "the White Angel", a war criminal wanted for his cruel and inhuman experiments on death camp inmates at Auschwitz--escaped to Argentina and lived a long life.

Operation Amadeus was exclusively concerned with the flight of SS and Nazi war criminals to the South American continent and their later ferocious covert actions against the indigenous populations justified under the banner of "anti-communism". One individual engaged in Amadeus activities was former Gestapo officer Klaus Barbie, known to the world as "the Butcher of Lyon".

The principal means of funding Operation Amadeus activities was the hugely profitable narcotics business. Large stocks of SS morphia had been smuggled out of Europe and into "Catholic" South America at the end of the War in accordance with the Sunrise agreement. The morphia was accompanied by looted SS gold and large quantities of counterfeit British banknotes, forged in concentration camps by captive but skilled counterfeiters as part of an SS scheme known as Operation Bernhardt.

The escape "lines" used to move wanted men around South America, away from the prying eyes of Israeli agents, also proved ideal as smuggling routes for drugs. Decades later, the stocks of heroin smuggled into the United States for distribution by the CIA-protected Mafia would be complemented with locally grown cocaine.

One of the figures to emerge into the spotlight during the 1980s who was deeply involved in this narcotics traffic was Colonel Oliver North, who authorised the exchange of guns for drugs to finance Contra operations. Oliver North was known to Al Carone under his "work" name, "John Caffrey". This was the time when Carone was engaged in CIA-controlled cocaine transactions with Joe "Pickles" Percilia, a member of the Colombo crime family.

These curious and usually concealed connections between governments (in the form of the military and intelligence community), organised crime, the Vatican and Nazi war criminals have some significant history. Not least was the secret agreement reached between US Naval Intelligence officers and Mafia don Charles "Lucky" Luciano during World War II. This resulted in the Mafia's decision to aid and assist the Allies by contacting Mob figure Vito Genovese in 1943 to prepare the way for the Allied landing in Sicily. As earlier outlined, it was primarily those SS&endash;Gestapo units located in Italy under command of SS General Wolff that were initially concerned in the Operation Sunrise negotiations.

And while large numbers of former Nazis were fleeing south to fight the communist menace in Latin America--and, more importantly, to profit personally from their involvement in the lucrative drug and gun business--in Europe, the spadework was being laid to overthrow or thwart democratically elected governments via a network of fascist-manned "Stay Behind units", organised under the aegis of Operation Gladio. Not surprisingly, this would also lead to certain involved figures making personal fortunes out of other people's misery--a circumstance that is so commonplace it is barely worth mentioning.

These neo-fascist activities would come to prominence in the early 1980s following the collapse of Banco Ambrosiano and the death of Italian banker Roberto Calvi, who was "suicided" and left hanging under London's Blackfriars Bridge. This would lead to sensational disclosures about the role of the Vatican Bank, the IOR, in Calvi's financial empire and would quickly grow to include the activities of Mafia financier Michele Sindona--whose activities, in turn, would implicate leading blue-blood banks in Europe and America in Mafia activities. Both Sindona and Calvi were close to Opus Dei, which lost around $55 million when Sindona's empire crashed. According to his family, Roberto Calvi was deeply engrossed in helping Opus Dei take control of the IOR when he was killed.

Meanwhile, both Calvi and Sindona were members of the secretive Propaganda Due (P2) masonic lodge, which is said to have been a "parallel government" in waiting and which planned to effect a coup d'鴡t in Italy following a Communist Party victory at the polls.

P2 was run by former Italian fascist and member of the Nazi SS, Licio Gelli--dubbed "the Puppet Master" by the Italian press. Gelli's connections to the ultra-hard-right and fascists in Europe and Latin America were extensive. In fact, he had been deeply involved in establishing the Vatican-run ratlines that aided the worst Nazi war criminals to escape Allied justice at the end of WWII. All told, an estimated 50,000 Nazis were helped to freedom.

Gelli had numerous powerful friends, including former Italian dictator Benito Mussolini. He was also a personal friend of Argentina's General Juan Per󮬠and his close associations with Argentina would later lead him to be a key figure in shipping a supply of French Exocet missiles to sink British Task Force ships during the Falklands War. In this endeavour he worked closely with Ronald R. Rewald, founder of the Hawaiian-based financial institution Bishop, Baldwin, Rewald, Dillingham & Wong--a CIA proprietary company and forerunner of the CIA-owned Nugan Hand Bank.

The involvement of a CIA front company engaged in financing and providing weapons to be used against a key American ally (Britain) with the wholehearted public support of the US Government may seem somewhat duplicitous. However, in the world of "black ops", "friends" and "enemies" are interchangeable words and working both sides of the fence is accepted practice.

In terms of hierarchy, Gelli reported to Umberto Ortolani, described by one writer as "the great Vatican door-opener" and "secret chamberlain of the papal household". In addition to his P2 connections, Ortolani is also a member of the inner council of the Knights of Malta and has military intelligence connections that date back to WWII.

THE OCTOPUS AND THE SPIDER

There are numerous other masonic groups and secret societies in Europe which move in and out of focus at various times. Almost all of them are Catholic in nature.

One of these is the Priory of Sion (Prieur頤e Sion)--a secretive order that first came to public attention via the best-selling book, The Holy Blood And The Holy Grail, published in 1982. The Priory is closely connected with the alleged treasure of Solomon which is said to have found its way to the small village of Rennes-le-Chⴥau in southwestern France, where it is said to have been buried by the Knights Templars, forerunners of the Knights of Malta.

The Priory, whose headquarters were located at Annemasse, near Geneva on the Swiss border, are styled as the "guardians" of Solomon's treasure, but, most interestingly, they have numerous subterranean connections to fascists and those on the far right that date back to WWII. Meanwhile, it has to be noted in passing that Annemasse is said to have been the centre for the anti-communist Stay Behind units of Operation Gladio.

If this is not intriguing enough, another fact stretches coincidence to the point of bursting. In recent years, the Priory of Sion has moved its headquarters to Barcelona and now boasts a Spanish Grand Master. This, one could conclude, is to enable it to be physically closer to the historical heartland of Opus Dei, which was founded in Spain in 1928.

If Otto Skorzeny was a leading force in running the SS Brotherhood escape routes--Der Spinne, the Spider--after the war, and SS General Karl Wolff was the lead negotiator with OSS Swiss Chief, Allen Dulles, then another Nazi, Walter Rauff, head of the Milan SD, was one of two liaisons with the Vatican involved in the establishment of the Nazi-smuggling system. Earlier in his career, Rauff had overseen the development of the Nazis' mobile gas vans, known as "Black Ravens", which gassed to death around 100,000 Jews, mostly women and children, by pumping exhaust fumes into the back of an hermetically sealed van.

Another important link between the Vatican and SS escape routes was Friedrich Schwendt, who was also the man in charge of laundering forged SS banknotes. Before WWII, Schwendt was an international arms dealer who shipped weapons to China and Russia. He was also the investment manager of the family fortune of his first wife's aunt, Baroness Gemmingen-Guttenberg, of the vastly wealthy Argentina-based Bunge family, of the massive transnational firm Bunge Corporation that is also known as "the Octopus".

This title is interesting, for it may connect to the so-called "Octopus" that ties in to murdered freelance journalist Danny Casolaro, who at the time of his death in 1991 was investigating a number of high-level illegalities including the theft by the Department of Justice of a "tracking" computer program known as "PROMIS". Casolaro was writing a book about what he had discovered. He originally titled it "Behold, A Pale Horse", but later modified it to "The Octopus". In a draft page of the book, he described this group as an "international cabal whose freelance services covered parochial political intrigue, espionage, sophisticated weapon technologies that included biotoxins, drug trafficking, money laundering and murder-for-hire". Casolaro further stated that this cabal was "spawned thirty years ago in the shadow of the Cold War".

After Casolaro's death, journalist Carol Marshall (a pen name) followed up his investigation and wrote an (as yet) unpublished manuscript, titled "The Last Circle". In this, Marshall describes her investigation of Robert Booth Nichols--one of the central figures of the Octopus, whom she describes as being part of a secretive group known as "the Chosen Ones" and who wore "skull and crossbones rings and shared a common interest, if you could call it that, in the old German SS occultism, its tribal and inner circle rites".

During her continuing investigation into the Octopus, Marshall found that the SS occultism outlined above was connected to Lt. Col. Michael A. Aquino, a former US Green Beret who is a self-professed Satanist and who held a Top Secret security clearance for his work in military intelligence and on classified psychological warfare matters. Aquino officiated at SS black-magic ceremonies held at Wewelsburg, the castle once used by SS chief Heinrich Himmler to create an SS order of Teutonic knights based on the Knights Templars.

The foregoing connections lend themselves to a larger picture of global, interlocking, right-wing fascist groupings that operate in the shadowland of deniable military and intelligence operations associated with profit during WWII and, later, throughout the Cold War.

In this respect, it is intriguing to note that the Priory of Sion, one of the foremost Catholic groups under discussion, uses as a symbol something that is variously described as an octopus or a spider (araign饩 on its documents. The Priory's association with the octopus could easily relate to the so-called Octopus described above, where organised crime works hand in glove with operatives from US intelligence and the military. If one decides, on the other hand, that the Priory symbol is a spider, there is the intriguing notion of the Vatican-run Nazi escape lines of Austrian Catholic Otto Skorzeny and his SS Brotherhood's Der Spinne (the Spider).

THE BUSINESS OF GOD

Al Carone was, as mentioned earlier, a "made" man of the Genovese Mob in addition to his other associations. It is curious, therefore, to note that one of the leading lights of the Octopus, according to writer Carol Marshall, was ultra-right-wing oil tycoon Clint Murchison, owner of the Dallas Cowboys football team. Murchison's oil company, Murchison Oil Lease Company, was 20 per cent owned by Gerardo Catena, the chief lieutenant of the Genovese crime family.

Throughout the Second World War and thereafter there was, according to author Charles Higham in his book, Trading With The Enemy, a "general agreement of certain major figures of American, British and German commerce to continue their relations and associations after Pearl Harbor". Higham adds that he also learned that "certain figures of the warring governments had arranged to assist in this [activity]". Higham's subsequent research proved that this high cabal--which he dubbed "the Fraternity"--not only existed but benefited handsomely throughout WWII. This led the author to ask:

What would have happened if millions of Americans and British people, struggling with coupons and lines at the gas stations, had learned that in 1942 Standard Oil of New Jersey managers shipped the enemy's fuel through neutral Switzerland and that the enemy was shipping Allied fuel? Suppose the public had discovered that the Chase Bank in Nazi-occupied Paris after Pearl Harbor was doing millions of dollars' worth of business with the enemy with the full knowledge of the head office in Manhattan? Or that Ford trucks were being built for the German occupation troops in France with authorisation from Dearborn, Michigan? Or that Colonel Sosthenes Behn, the head of the international American telephone conglomerate ITT, flew from New York to Madrid to Berne during the war to help improve Hitler's communications systems and improve the robot bombs that devastated London? Or that ITT built the Focke-Wulfs that dropped bombs on British and American troops? Or that crucial ball-bearings were shipped to Nazi-associated customers in Latin America with the collusion of the Vice-Chairman of the US War Production Board, in partnership with G?g's cousin in Philadelphia, when American forces were desperately short of them? Or that such arrangements were known about in Washington and either sanctioned or deliberately ignored?

Higham's "Fraternity" has similar characteristics to the so-called "Octopus", and also shows certain similarities to Colonel Oliver North's "Enterprise". All have engaged in the most dubious and illegal activities for profit, and all operate hand in glove with organised crime. All lean so far to the right, ideologically speaking, that the word "fascist" can be used without reservation. Meanwhile, none of them cares very much for the woes of humanity and, indeed, they appear committed to stomping on ethics and moral values wherever they meet them.

The octopus--or "Oct Opus", as one European documentary film producer renders the spelling when referring to Opus Dei (which began life on 2 October 1928)--has eight arms that surround its mouth (ensuring a constant supply of food) and three hearts, and is therefore not prone to starving or dying. But it can also be identified by these oddities. Opus Dei, the group that is now in control of the Vatican, is undoubtedly one arm of this global criminal network, in this writer's view. Or are the three hearts of the octopus more vital to identify? Could they be analogous to the "Church, State and Mafia, the forces that prevail beneath the play of the shadows of the world" (as described by Nick Tosches in his book, Power On Earth, which tells the life story of murdered Mafia financier Michele Sindona)?

There is yet another interesting twist to this accumulation of associations: Prince Bernhard of The Netherlands. The Prince was the founding chairman of the publicity-shy Western power elite, the Bilderbergers. This shadowy and secretive group meets over a weekend in May/June each year, under an almost total media blackout [see deBriefings this issue]. Powerful and very influential figures from the world of banking, business, politics, the media, trades unions and academia are invited. Included regularly, for example, are Dr Henry Kissinger, David Rockefeller, and Italy's "king-maker", Gianni Agnelli. The first meeting took place in May 1954.

This, strangely, was the same year that Prince Bernhard became head of the Johanitter Orde in Nederland, one of four orders that make up the Chivalric Alliance of Orders of Saint John (Alliance de Chevalerie des Hospitaliers de Saint Jean de J鲵salem). The stated purpose of these four, known as "the Alliance"--which is composed of northern European nations Germany, The Netherlands, Sweden and Great Britain, the latter being an ancient order known as "the Most Venerable Order"--is "to reduce to silence the enemies of Christ". The headquarters of the Alliance are located in Switzerland.

These are Protestant orders rather than Catholic, but it is of significance that, on 26 November 1963, the Alliance was "consolidated with the signing of a joint declaration between the Sovereign Military Order of Malta and the Most Venerable Order, at St John's Gate, London, by the Grand Chancellor of the SMOM, the Prince of Resuttano, and Lord Wakehurst, Lord Prior of the Most Venerable Order". In other words, the Catholic and Protestant orders bound themselves to work together to "silence the enemies of Christ"--a clear reference to communism.

Interestingly, it has been suggested that the Knights Templars were "infected" with the Johannite or Mandaean heresy that denounced Jesus as a "false prophet" and in his place recognised John the Baptist as the true Messiah. Notwithstanding that, the famous founder of the Knights Templars, Hughes de Payens, has been accused by the Vatican of being a Johannite.

Leaving aside this brief foray into esoteric history, it is as well to note that Prince Bernhard, in addition to his Bilderberg role and as head of the Dutch Johannite Order, was also an honorary member of Himmler's SS and worked in NW7, the global intelligence arm of I.G. Farben which acted in the interests of the Nazi cause. The activities of NW7 in Latin America before, during and after World War II are deeply interwoven in this story.

In facilitating and aligning itself with many of the foregoing activities, the Vatican aimed to help eradicate a communist ideology that despised Christianity. Opus Dei and a host of other Catholic-cum-fascist secret groups engaged in a litany of murder, money laundering, drug peddling, arms trafficking, concealment of WWII loot, embezzlement, manipulation of financial markets and many other consummate illegalities. The purpose of all these activities was, arguably, to allow the Vatican to remain the spiritual bulwark of the Christian West.

But if such business is the business of a Church preaching of a God in Heaven, then Caesar on Earth had better watch out. A new landlord has fallen into town.

07Jun02 -  Bilderberg 2002 official Press Release and participant list

PRESS RELEASE BILDERBERG MEETINGS 31 May 2002

The 50th Bilderberg Meeting will be held in Chantilly, Virginia, U.S.A., 30 May-2 June 2002. Among other subjects the Conference will discuss Terrorism, Trade, Post Crisis Reconstruction, Middle East, Civil Liberties, US Foreign Policy, Extreme Right, World Economy, Corporate Governance. Approximately 120 participants from North America and Europe will attend the discussions. The meeting is private in order to encourage frank and open discussion.

Bilderberg takes its name from the hotel in Holland, where the first meeting took place in May 1954. That pioneering meeting grew out of the concern expressed by leading citizens on both sides of the Atlantic that Western Europe and North America were not working as closely as they should on common problems of critical importance. It was felt that regular, off-the-record discussions would help create a better understanding of the complex forces and major trends affecting Western nations in the difficult post war period. The cold war has now ended. But in practically all respects there are more, not fewer, common problems - from trade to jobs, from monetary policy to investment, from ecological challenges to the task of promoting international security. It is hard to think of any major issue in either Europe or North America whose unilateral solution would not have repercussions for the other. Thus the concept of a European-American forum has not been overtaken by time. The dialogue between these two regions is still - even increasingly - critical.

What [check out this sentence ;-)] is unique about Bilderberg as a forum is the broad cross-section of leading citizens that are assembled for nearly three days of informal and off-the-record discussion about topics of current concern especially in the fields of foreign affairs and the international economy; the strong feeling among participants that in view of the differing attitudes and experiences of the Western nations, there remains a clear need to further develop an understanding in which these concerns can be accommodated; the privacy of the meetings, which has no purpose other than to allow participants to speak their minds openly and freely. In short, Bilderberg is a small flexible, informal and off-the-record international forum in which different viewpoints can be expressed and mutual understanding enhanced.

Bilderberg's only activity is its annual Conference. At the meetings, no resolutions are proposed, no votes taken, and no policy statements issued. Since 1954, forty-nine conferences have been held. The names of the participants are made available to the press. Participants are chosen for their experience, their knowledge, and their standing; all participants attend Bilderberg in a private and not an official capacity. There are usually about 120 participants of whom about two-thirds come from Europe and the balance from North America. About one-third are from government and politics, and two-thirds from finance, industry, labor, education, communications.

Participants have agreed not to give interviews to the press during the meeting. In contacts with the news media after the conference it is an established rule [ref. Chatham House Rule] that no attribution should be made to individual participants of what was discussed during the meeting.

There will be no press conference. A list of participants is appended.

CHANTILLY. Va.?Bilderberg luminaries battered their American counterparts over U.S Middle East policy, which they blamed for causing the need for a ?war on terrorism? which could lead to bloody military misadventures.

However, most Bilderberg boys from both sides of the Atlantic were, for some reason, confident there would be no war between Pakistan and India. At that moment, both nations were on the brink of a nuclear holocaust.

It could have had something to do with the appearance of Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, who was hastily summoned to appear on Saturday, June 1. Rumsfeld had attended a Bilderberg meeting in 1975 at Cemse, Turkey, as an assistant to President Jerry Ford. Ford had attended Bilderberg as minority leader of the House.

Rumsfeld is known to have been summoned to reassure the Europeans there would be ?no immediate? U.S. invasion of Iraq as had been planned by the White House (American Free Press, June 10). He was pressed, but refused to say, that the United States had no plans for future wars.

Whether Rumsfeld also helped reassure Bilderberg there would be no war between Pakistan and India could not be determined.

But, even as Rumsfeld was assuring Bilderberg of at least a momentary delay in launching a new war, President Bush was rattling sabers in a commencement ad dress at West Point.

?Pre-emptive strikes? will be used against nations or groups that threaten the United States, Bush told the newly minted Army officers. He vowed to ?take the battle to the enemy, disrupt its plans and confront the worst threats before they emerge.?

Besides Rumsfeld, Deputy Secretary of the Treasury Kenneth Dam was scheduled to attend?and did.

But unity was expressed with kind words, smiles, hand shakes and embraces on Bilderberg?s long-term agenda:

? Empowering the United Nations until it becomes a de jure, as well as de facto, world government.

? Advancing this goal by creating a direct UN tax on ?world citizens,? expanding NAFTA throughout the Western Hemisphere as a prelude to creating an ?American Union? similar to the European Union and empowering international bodies to further erode the sovereignty of nations. Further establishing NATO as the UN?s world army was also discussed.

There was much hand-wringing over ?rising nationalism? in Europe, as demonstrated by the electoral successes of Jean-Marie Le Pen in France and by a populist ?resurgence? in The Netherlands and Denmark. Americans agreed to pursue a ?world without borders.?

But on the issues of war and America?s Middle East policy, Americans faced three days of chastisement, both in formal sessions and during glass-tinkling between sessions. A grim-faced Henry Kissinger and others had to take it as Europeans denounced U.S. policy.

It reached the point that Europeans were praising their detested press, which has showered them with unwanted publicity in recent years. This is a close paraphrase of the angry words Americans heard:

In Europe, you would be unable to conduct such a one-sided policy in the Middle East. Europeans know, because of heavy press coverage, of Israel?s wars of expansion and brutal occupation of Palestinian lands. They are aware of the cruelty inflicted on civilians, including women and children, for no military objective at all.

Europeans know that Israel?s military machine is financed by the United States. They know that the planes, tanks and weapons attacking innocent citizens are provided by the United States. While there is no justification for the attacks in New York and Washington on Sept. 11, Europeans know that Palestinians will resist in any way they can.

Because of the unfair Middle East policy of the United States, we Europeans now must be your allies in your war on terrorism.

Americans responded to this with grim faces and shrugs.

The administration had anticipated this barrage and tried to soften it with a peace plan that included an independent Palestinian state. This goes beyond previous U.S. positions, Americans reassured the Europeans, which merely called for Palestinian statehood. The plan was still being drafted as Bilderberg met but they were assured it would be publicly unveiled in July.

Bilderberg celebrated the fact that a global UN tax is ?part of the public dialogue? without a public outcry by ?nationalists.? Alan Keyes, as President Ronald Reagan?s UN ambassador, denounced the proposed tax and it has been widely discussed since.

Bilderberg has offered several variations of the world tax. First, it suggested a 10-cent tax on oil at the barrel head, meaning citizens would pay a direct tax to the UN when gassing up their cars or using oil in any way. A surcharge on international travel by air or sea and a tax on international financial transfers were also proposed.

Like the federal income tax, a UN levy would be so small at the outset the consumer would hardly notice. But establishing the principle that the UN can directly tax citizens of the world is important to Bilderberg. It is another giant step toward world government. It is openly discussed with little public notice or objection ?except for the Ron Pauls in Congress? and ?nationalist? publications, Bilderberg boys assured themselves. The references were to populist Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.) and the newspaper you are reading.

There were also demands for ?tax equity??meaning that the United States must revise her tax laws to more evenly reflect the high-tax, socialistic societies of Europe. It was called ?unfair trade? for the United States to be so?by comparison??tax friendly? to individuals and businesses.

Europeans continued to complain about the new farm subsidy legislation and the imposition of tariffs on steel imports to protect the domestic industry against dumping and were distraught that the Senate version of Fast Track would allow Congress to block any trade deals that negate laws protecting domestic industries.

There was continued sniping at the United States be cause Bush ?unsigned? the Kyoto global warming treaty which, economists warned, would generate sky-high inflation while requiring nothing of most nations. Spite fully, the 15-nation European Union ratified the treaty on June 1 as Bilderberg was meeting. This prompted a graying Bilderberg luminary to moan that George Bush is ?the worst president since [Richard] Nixon.? Never has Bush received a higher tribute.

NATO has been functioning as the standing army of the United Nations since celebrating its 50th anniversary in Washington during the invasion of Yugoslavia. NATO?s first shot fired in anger was not in defense, as its charter required, but in an offensive war. At that time, leaders announced that NATO was no longer confined to Europe but would undertake military ventures anywhere in the world?at the direction of the UN Security Council.

Bilderberg is reinforcing this world army doctrine while doing early work on the third great region of the world: the emerging ?Asian-Pacific Union.?

It is already being bound together as APEC?the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum. Even as Bilderberg met, one of its own, Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.) was attending a meeting of Asian-Pacific defense ministers. Ultimately, there are to be three great regions for the administrative convenience of the world government: the European Union, American Union and Asian-Pacific Union.

Bilderberg ended a day earlier than normal, abandoning Westfields early on Sunday afternoon, June 2. Normally, they would have said their farewells on Mon day. This must have been a sudden decision, be cause staffers of Bilderberg participants in nearby Washington had been told they would be out of their offices until Tuesday.

 

     

 

THE BILDERBERG SYNDROME 

Part One by Sherman H. Skolnick 7/1/02

Every year, for almost half a century, they meet in a different country. Their first meeting was in Holland, in 1954. It was arranged by the Dutch Monarchy. It took place in the Bilderberg Hotel, which became the name of this secret society, one of several, forbidden to be discussed by the oil-soaked, spy-riddled monopoly press.

Mutually pledged to sealed lips are those invited to the annual meeting. Members of the aristocracies attend of various nations, consisting of the elites of high finance, politics, espionage, academia, media, and other titles.

I once interviewed, on tape, the wire desk editor of the Chicago Sun-Times. "Why does your paper censor stories about the secret society, the Bilderberg?" Most media honchos pretend never to have heard of this gang of plotters. But he responded candidly, a rarity, "Well, if we went and then told about it, we couldn't go anymore. What should we do? Go and talk about it, or not be able to go?"

The meetings of the Bilderberg Group are about the only place that competing financial forces sit with one another. The Rockefellers, for example, are always there. So are their apparent enemy, the French Rothschilds. Sitting as a sort of neutral intermediary always is a top official of the Wallenberg banking monopoly of Sweden and northern Europe.

[In 1978, when John D. Rockefeller 3rd was assassinated on the road to their upstate New York fortress, we were the ONLY journalists (unpaid, free lance journalists, at that), who dared inquire. He was the father of John D. Rockfeller 4th, who to be cute, calls himself "Jay", a supposed Democrat, U.S. Senator from West Virginia. The Rockefellers like to dominate states with sizeable geography and minerals, but a small population, such as also Arkansas. In a pinch, to dominate the state it would not cost that much to buy most every voter and most every media propaganda instrument in the state.Returning the "favor" of political murder was eighteen years later when the top member of the French Rothschild Family was murdered in Paris. The American monopoly press was ordered not to mention in detail, if at all, the death of Rothschild. Or, just run an innocent little item that the French International baron died of a "heart attack". Presslord/swindler Rupert Murdoch ordered his print and electronic media outlets to avoid, if at all, mentioning the death.

The hotel in different countries where they meet each year, are announced as "closed", for "remodeling", or a "wedding party". One year they picked a resort hotel on top of a Swiss mountain, difficult to reach except by air. The host nation agrees to supply a huge, almost secret security force prepared to brutalize intruders, follow any hardy reporters who may be encamped nearby, and by various brutality and trickery stop any public knowledge. Hotel employees are likewise pledged to secrecy, which if they violated it, would be severely dealt with. Such as never to be able to work again in that nation.

When the Bilderberg met in 1991, in Baden-Baden, Germany, a purported health resort, invited was a then obscure Governor of Arkansas, Bill Clinton. They anointed him as the next President of the United States. The election would be a mere set up. The pressfakers present agreed not to mention, if at all possible, what they all knew. That Clinton was a walking, talking scandal. Not every American voter can bring themselves to know or believe reality. Namely, every candidate for high office is selected because they are blackmailable. The Establishment has to reserve the right to pull on the chain, any time they felt like it, to shut down such a candidate if somehow elected to high office. This, anytime the "powers that be" deemed it necessary, to shut him or her up, to remove them, or, scare them into silence with weird violence directed against the candidate/president's circle.

Groomed since a teen-ager by the American CIA, Clinton in the1992 Presidential election shadow-boxed with his mentor, George Herbert Walker Bush, former head of the secret political police. Daddy Bush has been with the espionage cartel since 1959, when they helped set him up with six hundred worldwide affiliates for "his" petroleum drilling empire, Zapata Oil, later, Zapata Offshore, later Pennzoil, still later, Pennzoil/Texaco.

Earlier, as Arkansas Governor, Clinton participated in the hundreds of millions of dollars involved in the dope traffic through the southern states, run by the American CIA, in part through the espionage airport at Mena, Arkansas. Clinton's partners were Daddy Bush, Ollie North, and Congressman Henry Hyde (R., Ill.), who was also head of the CIA "black budget", funds for covert operations including domestic and overseas political assassinations. Return shipments of air-shipped weapons, went to unlawfully aid the Contras in Nicaragua.

Clinton, as known to his handlers and partners, was clearly subject to blackmail and being terrorized.

He was selected to be an Oxford College, Great Britain student by the Rhodes Trust. As not widely known, but nevertheless true, the Rhodes fortune is pledged to overthrow the American Republic, to return this continent to puppet colonies, and the American inhabitants to be subjects of the British Monarch in London. [Visit our website series, "The Overthrow of the American Republic".]

While in England, Clinton, a sexual predator, suffering from having his flag up too often, priapism, raped a British woman. He was forced to terminate his studies at Oxford and abruptly leave Great Britain, with the proviso that he would not be criminally prosecuted as long as he never returned. In the 1992 Presidential Election, Daddy Bush and Clinton agreed not to bring up each other's dirty laundry. Clinton would not mention the treasonous deal done by the Elder Bush in Paris, October, 1980, to arrange weapons shipments to Iran, in return, Iran would refuse to return the 52 U.S. hostages from the Teheran Embassy, until the Reagan/Bush ticket was safely inaugurated in January, 1981. If incumbent President Jimmy Carter could have avoided seeming to be a wimp and get the return of the hostages right before the election, it would, to Bush, be the dreaded "October Surprise". And Clinton agreed not to mention Daddy Bush's treason in the Iran-Contra scandal.

Over and above the blackmailable items known as to both Clinton and Bush, was Clinton's position with the aristocracy that gathers each year as the Bilderberg Group. The person using the name "Clinton" should rightfully be called William ROCKEFELLER Clinton. Our interviews with middle-level members of the Rockefeller Family, convinces us of the validity of our position. Namely, that "Clinton" is the illegitimate great grandson of old John D. Rockefeller, founder of the infamous petroleum monopoly, Standard Oil.[Other such details, see our website series on Wal-Mart, headquartered in Arkansas.]

Several terms prior to "Clinton", Winthrop Rockefeller was Arkansas Governor. He was known to have fathered, throughout the U.S., at least five illegitimate children. [The legitimate great grandson of John D., is "Jay" Rockefeller whose wife, Sharon Percy Rockefeller, is a top mogul of public tv and radio. We call it National Petroleum Radio.]

Throughout his career as Governor and President, "Clinton" was kept on a chain, by among other things, terror-tactics. A strange one-motor airplane with an already dead pilot, somehow eluded all the measures to protect the White House, and came within a few feet of crashing right through President Clinton's White House bedroom window. The White House rooftop battery of missiles was somehow turned off that night. The plane had to be guided, that is vectored, from accomplices on the ground, to steer around all the obstructions and buildings in its path. Remote controlled? Perhaps. During his Presidency, more than a hundred of his confidants, friends, circle of friends, and such were murdered. His Little Rock campaign chief, Jerry Parks, was murdered, mobster-style. Various of his U.S. Marine and other guards, who knew a lot about him, were one by one, snuffed out in strange, so-called "accidents". His pal, Vincent W. Foster, Jr., was murdered and explained away as a "suicide". Other websites have compiled a lengthy list of these happenings. In simple terms, those who meet at the Bilderberg Group, are aristocrats, the handlers of their retainers, stooges, spy chiefs, bank bosses, and such. Seemingly little understood is the basic premise of aristocracy. When one nation's aristocracy, Establishment, whatever you want to call them, has a falling out with that of another nation, that is grounds for war. If bad enough, it becomes a World War. One group plans to have more power, consolidate their territorial position, and silence the grumbling of unemployed ordinary people, through the drums of war, to the destruction and detriment of the opposing aristocracy. Used to foment bloody conflict are a massive media campaign of hate against the Establishment of the opposing Ruling Class, now designated as an Enemy, previously having been business partners. To get the ordinary populace into the right mode, they become bombarded around the clock with martial music, and appeals to flag, God, and such terms as Fatherland and Mother Russia.. In plain terms, the aristocracy goaded, pumped up, poorly informed workers to murder, for flag and country, the counterpart workers of the opposing aristocracv. In some instances, one aristocracy still does business with the other, in the midst of the War. [See, "Trading With the Enemy", by Charles Higham.]

Depressions, on the other hand, are a combination of an orchestrated event combined with the cycles of circumstance. The aristocracy plans to grab up the real estate, commercial and residential, the collapsed bank funds written off, the bloated pie in the sky stock ownership, and other assets of the powerless suckers, for a few pennies on the dollar. All the while, the ultra rich, through their press whores, falsely proclaim that the return of prosperity is just around the corner. [It may take fifteen years and another instigated war to do that.]

What is plotted and agreed upon, as shown by the circumstances of a secret society like the Bilderberg Group should NOT be described or labeled as merely a "conspiracy". And we are NOT "conspiracy theorists" [You do not succeed in putting bribe-taking judges in jail, as we have, for decades, by foolishness and "conspiracy theories".] These are the known ways of the Establishment, the Ultra Rich, the Aristocracy, by whatever label. Bred into them from birth is this mindset for power and enrichment little-understood by generally good-hearted, ordinary people who would not instigate a bloody war for profit.

So, sooner or later, the way the plutocrats conduct their horrors of bloodshed and financial smash-ups, leads to Revolution. Europe, to their credit, have had more or less genuine upheavals, Revolutions. America never has had such.

[A useful primer is Ferdinand Lundberg's great documented work, "The Rich and the Super Rich", first published in 1968, but timely even now. His earlier work has a lot of even more revealing details, published in 1937, still on hand in some large lirbraries, "America's Sixty Families".]

To understand the ways of the Bilderberg Group, you have to have a sharp eye for calendar events and circumstances. You have to carefully notice what happens usually in the month or so AFTER their annual secret meeting. Note these happenings within thirty days of the Bilderberg Group meeting, May 30 to June 2, 2002 (they actually adjourned a day earlier), at a hotel at Chantilly, Virginia.

===Suddenly the monopoly press, headed by those presslords who attended the meeting, such as Donald Graham, head of the Washington Post, Conrad Black, Canadian/U..S. press empire, and others, on behalf of the Ultra Rich started a series of scandal disclosures. Such as that the second largest long distance service in the U.S., WorldCom, parent of MCI, had concealed book-cooking of almost four billion dollars. And thus, WorldCom stock plummeted from about sixty dollars per share to eight pennies per share, and faces bankruptcy.. Such as, Xerox, the original copy machine empire, to apparently falsely show a profit instead of huge losses, cooked their books to the tune of six billion dollars. Such as Clear Channel Communications, owner of 1200 U.S. radio stations, had reportedly likewise cooked their books. "Clear Channel Says No Accounting Issues", Business-Reuters, Los Angeles, June 27, 2002. Another sudden revelation within the thirty days after the Bilderberg meeting in 2002, the advertising giant, OMNICOM, had reportedly likewise cooked their books by way of gobbling up other advertising and marketing agencies. "Omnicom gutted on debt review", CBS.MarketWatch.com, June 27, 2002.[OMNICOM are the parent of DDB Chicago, which represented the advertising and marketing, at the same time apparently, of supposedly competing soda pop companies, Coca-Cola and Pepsi-Cola. See the details, many in the court record, but little known, in our website series, "Coca-Cola, CIA, and the Courts.]

===The British-owned newspaper now gaining large circulation as well in the U.S. is Financial Times of London. On a Chicago dateline story, by their correspondent Jeremy Grant, they opened up the reputed scandal that mammoth General Motors had cooked their books. For a while, General Motors stock was suspended in trading on the Big Board. "GM denies accounting problems", Financial Times, June 27, 2002.

===A few weeks BEFORE the Bilderberg 2002 meeting, the New York Times suddenly attacked a previous sacred cow, General Electric, implying G.E. engages in book-cooking. New York Times bigshots often attend Bilderberg meetings. "Wait a Second What Devils Lurk in the Details?", by Gretchen Morgenson, New York Times, April 14, 2002.

===And then there was the story that bigshots of Apple Computer sold millions of dollars of their shares in the company just before really bad news was disclosed.

These scandalous details, pave the way for foreign aristocracies to get an armlock on American business. These details were apparently long-known to the accounting firms, but not revealed until Bilderberg Group gave the signal, "Wreck them now! Get them!" Little known, most of the big accounting firms have as their parent firm, a foreign enterprise. Such as Arthur Andersen is owned by a Swiss outfit. Deloitte & Touche is actually owned by a Japanese firm, Tohmatsu. As we have detailed, Great Britain, at least since the war of 1812 when they burned down our Capitol, has planned to grab this continent back. And for that purpose, they were involved in the political assassination of three U.S. Presidents. [Visit our extensive website series, "The Overthrow of the American Republic".]

Of course, the Liars and Whores of the press will not link up these happenings. Remember, if good witnesses or documents are hard to get, circumstances alone, on occasion, are even sufficient to send a criminal defendant to the electric chair.

Wars, Depressions, vast theft of properties and assets, and political murders are not merely purely accidental. They are not a conspiracy. Just the day to day, month to month, year to year, and decade to decade way of conducting matters of the Establishment and their meeting clubs, their secret societies, of which Bilderberg is just one.

More coming. Stay tuned.
