The Scheme of World Power?

The 58th Bilderberg Meeting was held in Sitges, Spain 3 – 6 June 2010f with 130 participants discussing the future of:  Financial Reform, Security, Cyber Technology, Energy, Pakistan, Afghanistan, World Food Problem, Global Cooling, Social Networking, Medical Science, EU-US relations.      

I find it especially humorous the topic of global cooling, as opposed to global warming. What is not so funny, is how the Bilderberg meetings and other think tanks influence our lives.      

David Rockefeller heads the Member Advisory Group and the list is a who’s who of people of prominence.  A third of the people are from government and politics, and two-thirds are from finance, industry, labor, education, and communications. The meeting is private in order to encourage frank and open discussion. http://www.bilderbergmeetings.org/meeting_2010_2.html      

A few select photos of some attendees can be found here at http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/gallery/2010/jun/09/bilderberg-spain  and at http://www.danielestulin.com/galeria/fotos/bilderberg2010/  

Wouldn’t you have loved to have been a fly on the wall?  Which one of the members would have held the fly swatter?      

“You don’t need a conspiracy site to know what these supposedly elite and powerful people were ‘secretly’ meeting about. They weren’t talking about their golf handicaps; they’re talking about the economic shape of the world. They’re asking if the euro will survive. They’re wondering if America will survive. What will the world look like a year from now?” …      

There are forces trying to make you believe everything is OK and that more government and more spending is the way to go. There are forces who want to gain more international power and control. And then there’s you. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,594127,00.html      

And then there’s you.      

Daniel Estulin, author of The True Story of the Bilderberg Group, claims Bilderberg’s goal, is “the creation of a global network of giant cartels, more powerful than any nation on Earth, destined to control the necessities of life of the rest of humanity, obviously from their vantage point, for our own good and in our benefit – the great unwashed as they call us.”      

Charlie Skelton summed up some of the connections nicely at his blog,  http://www.guardian.co.uk/news/blog/2010/jun/14/charlie-skelton-bilderberg-2010      

One of the participants snapped by Quierosaber is the glacial senior fellow of the Hudson Institute,[sic http://www.hudson.org/]   Marie-Josée Kravis, (wife of Henry Kravis, head of private equity megafirm KKR). The tax-exempt Hudson Institute is a US “thinktank” which has a clearly stated aim: “We seek to guide global leaders in government and business.” It’s funded by good and wise people like Monsanto, DuPont, Pfizer, McDonald’s, General Atomics, IBM, Proctor & Gamble, and Conrad Black (Bilderberg attendee and currently guest of Florida correctional institution).      

The Hudson Institute was set up by the Rand Corporation (which had previously been set up by the Douglas Aircraft Company to advise the US military). In a nutshell, that’s who Marie-Josée Kravis works for, and that’s who George Osborne spent Bilderberg 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 listening to. In the words of Aretha Franklin: who’s zoomin’ who? And who the hell asked these foundations for their guidance in the first place? Stop issuing reports! Stop thinktanking! Stop presenting “well-timed recommendations to leaders in government”. Mind your own unelected business for a change. And pay some tax while you’re about it.      

 Educate Yourself  blog claims, “There is a worldwide conspiracy being orchestrated by an extremely powerful and influential group of genetically-related individuals (at least at the highest echelons) which include many of the world’s wealthiest people, top political leaders, and corporate elite…” http://www.educate-yourself.org/nwo/      

What about the 200 other think tanks besides Bilderberg, that are intermingling in public policy, and possibly manipulating governments and people?       

The Tavistock Institute: A Think Tank or A Propaganda Factory?

 The Tavistock Institute website http://www.tavinstitute.org/ says, “The Institute is engaged with evaluation and action research, organisational development and change consultancy, executive coaching and professional development, all in service of supporting sustainable change and ongoing learning.”      

Mmmm, sustainable change? Change you can believe in?       

The http://greatamericanpoetryshow.com/articles-and-essays/tavistock-the-best-kept-secret-in-america/ shows a more opportunistic organization whose influence and power may not be used for the good of the people :      

Tavistock Institute is headquartered in London. Its prophet, Sigmond Freud, settled in Maresfield Gardens when he moved to England. He was given a mansion by Princess Bonaparte. Tavistock’s pioneer work in behavioral science along Freudian lines of “controlling” humans established it as the world center of foundation ideology. Its network now extends from the University of Sussex to the U.S. through the Stanford Research Institute, Esalen, MIT, Hudson Institute, Heritage Foundation, Center of Strategic and International Studies at Georgetown, where State Dept. personal are trained, US Air Force Intelligence, and the Rand and Mitre corporations. The personnel of the corporations are required to undergo indoctrination at one or more of these Tavistock controlled institutions. A network of secret groups, the Mont Pelerin Society [sic http://www.montpelerin.org/] , Trilateral Commission,[sichttp://www.trilateral.org/ ]  Ditchley Foundation, [http://www.ditchley.co.uk/] and the Club of Rome[sic http://www.clubofrome.org/eng/home/ ]  is conduit for instructions to the Tavistock network.      

That’s some network.  Here’s a few more think tanks, errr- networks to think about:      

  • Brookings Institution
  • Council on Foreign Relations
  • Hudson Institute
  • Trilateral Commission
  • Kepner-Tregoe
  • Rational choice theory
  • http://www.rand.org/
  • Amron Harry Katz
  •  Via Wiki, “Critics such as Ralph Nader have suggested that, because of the private nature of the funding of some think tanks, their results are biased to a varying degree.  Some argue that members will be inclined to promote or publish only those results which ensure the continued flow of funds from private donors.” (emphasis mine.)      

    Continuing the flow of funds, my antennae turn to The World Health Organization.  WHO, with it secretive list of members  failed to disclose their connection and possible/probable influence by major pharmaceutical companies in declaring the now defunct Swine Flu Pandemic.    http://www.resistnet.com/profiles/blogs/h1n1-vaccine-scandal-world  

    The Bilderberg Meetings were covered in the press, somewhat. http://de2008a2012.wordpress.com/2010/06/06/bilderberg-2010-analisis-suma-y-seguimos/ writes ” the abandonment of secrecy purest of these Sects / corporations / lobbies has been caused in a gesture more than a sign of their absolute power over a society completely drugged with their vices and cultural naivety and utter spiritual darkness.”  There are also numerous links to press and video coverage of the meeting .       

    Ideological propaganda or ideological solutions?  Who pays for think tanks?  The taxpayer. The capitalist. And then there’s you.        

    The government funds, wholly or in part, activities at approximately 30 Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs). FFRDCs, are unique independent nonprofit entities sponsored and funded by the U.S. government to meet specific long-term technical needs that cannot be met by any other single organization. FFRDCs typically assist government agencies with scientific research and analysis, systems development, and systems acquisition. They bring together the expertise and outlook of government, industry, and academia to solve complex technical problems. These FFRDCs include the RAND Corporation, the MITRE Corporation, the Institute for Defense Analyses, the Aerospace Corporation, the MIT Lincoln Laboratory, and other organizations supporting various departments within the U.S. Government.     

    Master Government List of FFRDCs can be found at http://www.nsf.gov/statistics/nsf05306/ and a updated list at http://www.nsf.gov/statistics/ffrdclist/ and at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_federally_funded_research_and_development_centers. Partial funding disclosure can be found at http://www.nsf.gov/about/budget/fy2011/pdf/22-Facilities_fy2011.pdf       

    Blurred between the FFRDCs and Think Tanks, we have is what is referred to as “the twilight zone.”  Blurring the lines of The Constitution they often acts as a quasi government as reported in “The Quasi Government: Hybrid Organizations with Both Government and Private Sector Legal Characteristics.”  report at http://www.fas.org/sgp/crs/misc/RL30533.pdf    

    Characteristically most people are more familiar with the The Twilight Zone TV show, than the influence and power of these organizations. Throw in media think tanks like such as the conservative Heritage Foundation http://www.heritage.org/ and the Cato Institute, who promote libertarian social and economic reforms and you see who influences government policy, and the push toward globalization and a New World Order.   The liberal Tellus Institute  http://www.tellus.org/ website headline reads, ” research and action for a global civilization of  sustainability, equity, and well-being.”  What action and whose best interest will be served is anyone’s guess.   

    And then there’s you.  And,  then there’s them

    Military Spending

    “I don’t think that anybody in the (Obama) administration thinks there is a crisis,” Gates told reporters aboard his military jet early yhttp://apnews.myway.com//article/20090529/D98G22BO0.html  after North Korea recently detonated another nuclear test and prepares to fire more missiles capable of hitting Alaska.  Stupid duck say what?  No crisis from a totalitarian, communistic, secretive country who has made it clear on more than one occasion it seeks to dominate not only South Korea, but the world?

    North Korea calling its actions preparations for self defense, accused the Security Council of hypocrisy and in defiance said, “There is a limit to our patience, The nuclear test conducted in our nation this time is the Earth’s 2,054th nuclear test. The five permanent members of the U.N. Security Council have conducted 99.99 percent of the total nuclear tests.”  

    “Our nuclear deterrent will be a strong defensive means … as well as a merciless offensive means to deal a just retaliatory strike to those who touch the country’s dignity and sovereignty even a bit,” the official Korean Central News Agency quoted Pyongyang’s state-run Minju Joson newspaper as saying.

    An inter sting report on The North Korean regime’s history can be found here http://socialistworld.net/eng/2009/06/0701.html 

    Last year- 2008, countries around the world spent $1.5 trillion on weapons, vehicles and intelligence and reconnaissance services, according to a Monday report from the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute, or Sipri. http://www.marketwatch.com/story/global-military-spending-hits-a-record-in-2008   The amount represented a 4% increase from 2007 with the U.S. accounting for the largest percentage of the increase in spending. Undoubtedly, North Korea’s funding is not included in the study.

    Read more on military spending and escalation here http://www.sipri.org/yearbook. There is also an overview of arms control and disarmament agreements and international security cooperation bodies, and a chronology of events during 2008 in the area of security and arms control.

    33 Minutes: Protecting America in the New Missile Age is a one-hour documentary produced by The Heritage Foundation that tells the story of the very real threat foreign enemies pose to every one us. The truth is brutal – no matter where on Earth a missile is launched from it would take 33 Minutes or less to hit the U.S. target it was programmed to destroy. 

    33 Minutes is the definitive documentary exposing the untold vulnerability we all face and the action plan necessary to revive a strategic missile defense system that America uniquely can develop, maintain, and employ for its own defense.  The trailer for the movie can be seen here http://www.heritage.org/33-minutes/index.htm 

    Security, stability and peace aren’t cheap, but there are too many rogue nations and terrorist organizations who pose a constant threat that demands The Obama administration lay a course of military defense of America first and foremost.  Even Japan is on guard with the Anti-Missile defense system named the “Son of Star Wars,” already installed aboard Japanese Destroyer in anticipation of another North Korean Missile test or in the event of an attack with possibly nuclear war heads from North Korea.  http://www.nowpublic.com/world/missile-crisis-japanese-sea-escalating-further

    The good news is that The U.S. Defense Department led the surge in global military spending over the last decade, climbing to $607 billion in 2008 — more than seven times the military budget of China and greater than the combined budgets of the next 14 ranking nations, according to Sipri. 

    The bad news is that President Obama  is cutting military spending.  Read the Obama budget here http://i.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2009/images/02/26/fy10.budget.pdf  Our military exists to defend America. Period. Not “peacekeeping” or
    meals-on-wheels missions for the UN, not to prop up NATO, and not to maintain bases on foreign soil writes a commentator at http://www.humanevents.com/article.php?id=32169 where you can also view further military cuts and see that the ability to engage in conventional warfare appears on the chopping block.

    Sarah Palin weighed in on CNN, “Reducing Alaska’s defense readiness in these perilous times is a show of weakness, it is not a sign of strengths…And yet, Washington thinks it’s best now to actually cut defense spending in Alaska by hundreds of millions of dollars,” she said. “Now that is an odd priority there.”http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2009/06/07/palin-defense-cuts-are-a-sign-of-weakness/  

    Congress requires a “Quadrennial Defense Review” to answer the demands of the Defense Department and base its budgets on the QDR results.  But the 2009 QDR hasn’t been done yet.

    Taiwan’s First ever QDR http://www.taipeitimes.com/News/editorials/archives/2009/06/02/2003445104 offers the principle “preventing war but not fearing war and preparing for but not provoking war.”  Sounds like a sound policy.

    “We want defenses, but what should we look like? If you really truly want disarmament at the end of the day, having defenses is not a bad thing,” she said. “(But) if the U.S. has a strong defense and it’s too unilateral, then it looks to others like we’ll marry that to our offensive capability and have first-strike capability.” said Cristina Hansell, director of the Newly Independent States Nonproliferation Program at the Monterey Institute of International Studies. http://www.sfgate.com/cgi-bin/article.cgi?f=/c/a/2009/06/09/MNGF183579.DTL  I’d rather the world know we have the capability than not.

    Rep. Ellen Tauscher seeks Senate confirmation today as undersecretary of state for arms control and international security.  She seems as resolute as Obama on goal of a nuke-free future just as North Korea and others ramp up their nuclear programs.  The Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty, new strategic arms-reduction treaties including the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty all challenge the balance between peace and preparedness. 

    I am again reminded; A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
