Well done again to Steve Watson for being one of the only journalists in the world to pick up on Norman Baker's sporting second chance for Tony Blair to tell the truth. In this short bulletin I'll be relating some of my own experiences with crucial letters being 'spirited away' in the post and with my own realisation that several lines of enquiry I have been pursuing for the last ten years are, in fact, one and the same.
A criminal hand revealed
I have been in touch with LibDem MP for Lewes Norman Baker over PM Blair's Bilderberg denial last year in the House of Commons. As many will know by now I visited Ayrshire just after the 1998 conference and spoke to a woman who was working at the hotel.
She casually mentioned to me, with no prompting, that she'd served Tony Blair his breakfast one morning during the conference, which strongly suggests he was sleeping at the hotel and didn't just drop by for a celebrity appearance. Blair was not on the semi-official attendance list that year but his Defence Secretary George Robertson, who was about to be made Secretary General of NATO, was. http://www.bilderberg.org/1998.htm
In the first week in December 2006 Norman Baker's office at Portcullis House opposite Parliament sent me a letter authorising me to investigate Blair's presence or otherwise at the Turnberry meeting to show that I was a bona fide journalist working for him. That letter never arrived. His office sent me another letter, that didn't arrive either. At this point I knew the post was being illegally intercepted by someone either inside the House of Commons mail system or at the Bristol area sorting office in Filton and that either Norman Baker's phone and/or my own were being monitored. It is impossible to call lying politicians to account when they have criminal collaberators who listen in to telephone calls and have the power to destroy communications between journalists and MPs at will.
I have informed Norman's office and filed a 'lost mail' complaint with Royal Mail. Meanwhile the newish bilderberg.org forum was hacked earlier today. What I am always interested in when something like this happens is what was being discussed on the 'discussion libre' topic that was deleted? I this case it was negotiations which are proceeding with pope Benedict for the Roman Catholic Church to amalgamate with the Protestant churches. It seems that Benedict - who I dubbed the Diabolical pope for his ill-informed attacks on Islam - has been listening closely to his two new Bilderberg advisers, Peter Sutherland and Henry Kissinger on this one. The implication being that large churches such as these need to be brought together to make them easier for these totalitarians to control. One also wonders how much of the catholic congregations' collection money is going to Kissinger and his Associate?
People often ask me whether I have any proof that Bilderberg is controlled by freemasons. The proof I do have is that the last conference to take place in the UK was organised by one Andrew Palmer, who was also Private Secretary to the world's number one freemason, Grand Master of United Grand Lodge, the Duke of Kent.
So whatever precautions freemasons take to ensure that press and public never find out whether or not they are freemasons, a tyrrany of the mediocre. They are only in their public positions due to promotion and privilege within 'the craft'. For those of you who don't know a lot about freemasonry it is within the Royal Arch chapters that financially and politically motivated freemasons congregate. Many masons are unaware of the control-freakery of these higher degree masons who really have convinced themselves that they are 'elite' superior beings who can prey on ordinary members of the public with a clear concience. How perfectly this dovetails in with Bilderberg. Which is a political and economic global policy expression of that amoral elitism so characteritic of Nazi Germany.
HRH Duke of Kent - official site
HRH Duke of Kent's meteoric masonic rise: initiated 12th December 1963, made Grand Master of United Grand Lodge 27th June 1967 First Grand Principal of the Supreme Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Masons of England
HRH Duke of Edinburgh initiated 5th December 1952 (Masonic Yearbooks)
In November 2006 I went on a rare tour of Bristol's masonic hall in
...where I was amazed to see, in the royal arch temple, two giant columns with domes on the top which I can only describe as phallic...
...this wouldn't worry me so much if it wasn't for the fact that this temple is modelled on a Jewish synagogue. It has the flags of the twelve tribes of Israel and any orthodox Jew would recognise the layout immediately. But no natural light is allowed in and the masons guiding us round confessed to conducting ceremonies in there where only a single candle lit the entire place. Quite spooky sounding and a blasphemous travesty of Solomon's temple.
And these two issues have again come together with allegatons in the Enigma TV dvd 'Illuminati Volume I' and elsewhere that Tony Blair is himself a Royal Arch freemason and a member of 1591 United Studholme Alliance Lodge which, according to my Masonic Yearbook, meets at No. 10 Duke Street St. James, LONDON SW1Y 6BS, on the 1st Wednesday in February, the 3rd Wednesday in March, the 4th Wednesday in May and has an installation meeting for new members on 3rd Wednesday in October.
1591's Royal Arch chapter meets on the 3rd Wednesday in January and May as well as the 1st Wednesday in October. Last month I recorded and interview with Russian television outside 'the other number ten' which has a brass plate saying "Supreme Council, Ring Once". Some friendly masons turned up while we were filming and so I asked them what the Supreme Council was. They explained it was the headquaters of their branch of advanced freemasonry which was the Rose-Croix, otherwise known as Rosicrucians, who are one of the modern occult societies most closely associated with the medieval Knights Templar, and said by some to be identical to Weishaupt's Illuminati.
So you see, the hacking into my forum today and the theft of letters to me from one of Britain's most astute MPs has prompted something ratherdifferent. A call for Tony Blair to account for his masonic movements at Turnberry and, rather closer to home, in London's elite district of St. James. The tired old Blair puppet doesn't have long left on the stage but how much better for him to be removed by the press, MPs and by the people rather than one by the financial elite's two puppet parties. Now back to Steve Watson's report.
British MP Asking More Questions About Bilderberg
This time the next Prime Minister is the focus
Thursday, January 11, 2007
A British MP, who previously asked Prime Minister Tony Blair to reveal
details of any Bilderberg meetings he has attended, has now officially
asked the current Chancellor of the Exchequer, and most likely next
Prime Minister, to reveal details of his own attendances at Bilderberg.
Norman Baker, MP for Lewes, has officially requested that Gordon Brown
provide an oral or written answer to the following question:
Norman Baker (Lewes): To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, in which
years since 1997 (a) he and (b) other Treasury Ministers have attended
meetings of the Bilderberg Group.
The question has been officially submitted and it will now take a few
weeks before it is answered in the House of Commons.
Mr Baker previously asked Tony Blair the same question, to which Blair
answered "I have not attended any such meetings."
Blair may not have attended since he came to power but he certainly was
"groomed" by the secretive group, at the same time as Bill Clinton,
before either were elected into office.
It will be interesting to note Brown's answer given that he is known to
have attended the Bilderberg Conference when he was shadow Chancellor
of the Exchequer in 1991 and possibly again in 1995.
In a separate development, an answer has been provided to a question
about Bilderberg that was raised in the House of Lords:
Official Travel: Bilderberg Conference
Lord Stoddart of Swindon asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether any Ministers attended the Bilderberg Conference in Ottawa
between 8 and 11 June; if so, whether they attended in a ministerial or
private capacity; whether they made contributions to debates; and, if
so, on which subjects.[HL7569]
Lord Bassam of Brighton answered: All ministerial visits are conducted
in accordance with the Ministerial Code and Travel by Ministers. Since
1999, the Government have published annually a list of overseas travel
by Cabinet Ministers costing over £500 and the total cost of all
ministerial travel. Information for 2005-06 was published on Monday 24
July 2006. Copies are available in the Library for the reference of
noble Lords. Information for 2006-07 will be published as soon as
possible after the end of the financial year. Information on other
Ministers' travel is not collected centrally.
There was no response indicating what subjects were discussed by said
ministers in attendance.
Since this article first appeared, knowledge about this group has greatly expanded. This first version of this article was written after about 400 names were gathered and largely analyzed; and even before any work had been done on Le Cercle and the 1001. Now we are up to at least 1500 names, including many recent ones. It will take a lot of time to do bios on these members, analyze them, and give sources with each name, but for now it can be safely concluded that many members consistently are recruited from ALL the major banks, insurance companies, and law firms in New York and London. At the same time, Pilgrims flow in and out of the elected and permanent governments of the US and UK.
I suggest you take a look at the introduction page and appendix B where the origins of this group and its influence is discussed in a bit more detail. I also suggest you check out the work of Charles Savoie, who has been publishing a lot of work on Pilgrims since late 2004.
New information on the Pilgrims might be released via the front page at times, or not. Not sure.
Finally, I also suggest you take a look at this chart, which has been put together by looking at the individual biographies of the Pilgrims Society members.
The Pilgrims Society, an aristocratic Anglo-American dining club, was established over a century ago and meets at least two or three times a year. Its membership consists of the most influential bankers, lawyers, insurance brokers, and businessmen from the New York and London areas. A handful of career politicians also come from Washington. The club's primary purpose is to keep the ties between the United States and Britain as close as possible.
The London chapter of the Pilgrims Society was established on July 11, 1902, followed by a New York chapter on January 13, 1903. Its patron is the British monarch, who has plenty of representatives attending the meetings. A member of the Royal family usually attends the London diners.
As you'll find out by looking at the membership list, the Pilgrims Society has clearly fused together the business centers of New York and London, together with a large portion of the political centers of both nations. Ninety percent of the American members are top-level bankers and businessmen from New York city.
Only a couple of Pilgrims own or chair companies with headquarters in Boston or Philadelphia. Businesses that have their headquarters in any other location than this small part of the north-east corner of the United States don't seem to be represented at all (do keep in mind that recent data is sketchy). Relatively few government officials from Washington are recruited into the Pilgrims Society. Officials from outside the UK or US visit the club occasionally. In the past they usually came from countries incorporated within the British Empire or the Commonwealth, most notably Canada and Australia.
A mistake usually made when people refer to this society, is when they call it the 'Pilgrim Society', because this name hasn't been used that often. The most often used name is the 'Pilgrims Society', sometimes spelled as 'Pilgrim's Society'. You might think this isn't such a big deal, but when you search the internet or some archives for the 'Pilgrim Society', you will hardly find any official sources, simply because they all refer to the 'Pilgrims Society'. The name 'Pilgrims Society' is also unique, so you won't confuse it with this one. Also try searching on 'The Pilgrims' or more specifically, the 'Pilgrims of the United States' and the 'Pilgrims of the United Kingdom'/'Pilgrims of Great Britain'.
The club is secret. It might be one of those 'open-secrets', but it's secret nonetheless. If it wasn't, we would have read about it in the history books, we would know all the details of the meetings, and we would have membership lists in the public domain. It is possible to find quite a bit of information in regular newspaper archives, but you really have to look for it. It takes forever to piece the story together. For example, The Scotsman made numerous references to it in the first half of the century (archives are only available up to 1950 atm). Time Magazine made them much less, but still referred to the club once every few years. After 1958, Time only mentioned the club 2 or 3 times, even though meetings continued as usual. Other newspapers in the U.S., like the New York Times and the Washington Post have referred the Pilgrims at times. The Wall Street Journal on the other hand never mentioned a whole lot about this dining club at any time in the past century. The Times of London mentioned the society a couple of times in the past 10 years, even though, as all the other papers, it didn't give many details about who's attending. Most other newspapers, including the Scotsman, New York Post, Washington Times, or even the Guardian, seem to have been (almost) completely silent about the Pilgrims in the last 5 to 7 years (that's how far the digital archives go back). In other countries it's virtually impossible to get any information on the Pilgrims. Not one large Dutch newspaper has mentioned the name in the past 20 years. References in German or French newspapers are just as uncommon. One thing you actually càn find, is different speeches on official websites; One at NATO, another one at the State Department, and yet another one from 1999 on the MoD website. They all deal with one little speech and when you ask for some background information you won't get any replies. And that's strange. Maybe it's done to give people the impression there's nothing unusual about the club. Indeed, looking at the speeches there certainly isn't. All they do is talk about regular pro-NATO politics and kiss up to their "brothers" on the other side of the ocean. Two recent examples:
 January 2002, Lord Robertson, 'NATO after September 11'
 November 2002, Richard Boucher on Foreign policy, the EU, and NATO
You can find other speeches in the references at the bottom of this article. Of course, it's probably not because of the speeches that the Pilgrims Society keeps itself out of the public eye. More likely it's because of who's being informed and for what purpose. Also, it's obvious that members discuss a lot of other business among themselves.
As already stated, those who own or run the major banking houses, law firms, and insurance companies in the London and New York area will be invited to join, together with a few very specific government officials. This always includes the president of the United States, the U.S. Secretary of State and the U.S. ambassador to Great Britain. On the right you can see which other delegates traditionally are recruited into Pilgrims. Chancellors, Chief Justices, and Attorney Generals seem to be frequent members also. Occasional exceptions have been made to allow writers, composers and art collectors into the society. An example of that was Mark Twain.
The patron of the Pilgrims Society is the king or queen of England and a member from the royal family usually attends the Pilgrim dinners in Great Britain.
That's basically all there is to this Pilgrims Society; it's a dining club. Several times a year a dinner is planned and the board chooses which members it will invite this time, usually somewhere between 300 and 500. A few additional people are invited to hold a speech on a variety of political topics and someone is made the guest of honor. This guest of honor is usually a new member or a Pilgrim who has accomplished something worth remembering. In addition, the chairman of the Society (in Britain it is Robert M. Worcester atm) might give a speech to the CFR or the RIIA once in a while. As already demonstrated, the speeches are both boring and interesting at the same time. Boring because of their substance, and interesting because they show us that Pilgrims, as a whole, aren't privy to many state secrets.
A great example of the cooperation between the London and American Pilgrims is the London Bush House, which was ordered to be built in 1919 by Pilgrim Irving T. Bush, a N.Y. businessman. At the time it was the most expensive building in the world and was meant to be an Anglo-American trade center where buyers could purchase goods in one place. It lost its original function after a couple of decades, but still exists today as an office to the BBC World Service. Above the entrance there's a large statue, which represents this Anglo-American cooperation.
Britain is represented on the left by the lions, the USA is represented on the right by the Eagle. The Celtic cross indicates their common heritage. The torch can represent freedom, wisdom, victory, or something along that line. Below the statue you'll find the inscription "To the friendship of English Speaking Peoples".
The Pilgrims Society is allied with the English-Speaking Union, which is an organization that promotes the use of the English language all over the world. The patron is the English queen and the president is prince Philip. The chairman, as far as we know, is always a member of the Pilgrims.
All the important members of the 1910 Jekyll Island meeting were Pilgrims; Vanderlip, Strong, Warburg, Davison, Norton, and Aldrich. Senator Aldrich's closest ally in congress, Edward B. Vreeland, was a Pilgrim too, together with his brother. Vreeland helped Aldrich establish a privately owned central bank. Of course, J.P. Morgan, George F. Baker, John D. Rockefeller, and Jacob Schiff were members also. Keep in mind these people were often competing with each other and weren't necessarily friends, as so many (conspiracy-oriented) people seem to think.
N.Y. FED 'Pilgrim-presidents':
Red = confirmed Pilgrim
Pilgrim-presidents of the New York Federal Reserve Bank cover the period from 1914 to 1979. The 4 presidents since then have not been members as far as we know, although that's probably because of a lack of recent data. Pilgrim-chairmen of the New York Federal Reserve cover almost the entire period from the 1920s up to 1990, so we can safely assume that the New York Federal Reserve Bank is owned by the Pilgrims. That's not that unusual, because New York itself is Pilgrims property.
Because the Pilgrims have a large influence on Washington politics, it would be interesting to see if they have any members on the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, also located in D.C. If we have those names, we can estimate the Pilgrims' level of control over the Federal Open Market Committee. The FOMC is the main body of the Federal Reserve that decides on the monetary policy. The New York FED then carries out those directives through its daily 'open market operations'. In the words of the official Federal Reserve website that I just gave a link to:
"Finally, the Committee [FOMC] must reach a consensus regarding the appropriate course for policy, which is incorporated in a directive to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York-the Bank that executes transactions for the System Open Market Account. The directive is cast in terms designed to provide guidance to the Manager in the conduct of day-to-day open market operations. The directive sets forth the Committee's objectives for long-run growth of certain key monetary and credit aggregates. It also sets forth operating guidelines for the degree of ease or restraint to be sought in reserve conditions and expectations with regard to short-term rates of growth in the monetary aggregates."
The FOMC consists of the 7 FED governors, 1 permanent New York FED president, and 4 presidents of the other 11 FED banks that rotate each year. The chairman of the board of governors is also the chairman of the FOMC, and the president of the permanently represented New York FED is the vice chairman of the FOMC. We quote from the same page:
"...Traditionally, the Chairman of the Board of Governors is elected Chairman and the president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York is elected Vice Chairman..."
When sifting through the members list, it turns out that at least 4 of the 13 Federal Reserve chairmen are confirmed Pilgrims (they cover the years 1933-1934 & 1959-1987). Two other chairmen, Eugene Meyer and Alan Greenspan, have all the trademarks of being Pilgrims members. If that could be confirmed, the FED's Board of Governors has had Pilgrims as chairman from at least 1930 to 1934 & from 1959 on to 2005. In any case, the Pilgrims Society seems to be represented a disproportionate amount on the most influential places inside the U.S. monetary system, especially for a society that doesn't want its existence to be known to the general public. It is likely that at least since 1959 the chairman and vice chairman of the FOMC were Pilgrims, together with the persons carrying out the directives of the FOMC through the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
After analyzing the Pilgrims Society members list of about 360 names (updated in the meantime), I found that the institutions you see on the left were the most often represented. About 75% of this list is American and 25% British (rough estimate). This means that about 1 in 3 of the U.S. members of the Pilgrims Society is a confirmed member of the CFR. Striking is the fact that such a large percentage of CFR members are executive officers. About 50% of all the CFR executive officers have been confirmed members of the Pilgrims Society, which seems to indicate that quite possibly all of them are.
I remember looking at an old documentary about the CFR "master conspiracy". The usual stuff came by; banking, the Illuminati and the dollar bill. At the end they showed these concentric rings, indicating the CFR had unknown inner circles. Guess we can now say for sure what the second circle is, counting from the outside. It's the Pilgrims Society and it undeniably shows the close link between American and British foreign policy.
Of course, it has long been speculated that the same group that set up the RIIA, set up the CFR, but I was never convinced enough though, because the group connecting both organizations has never been fully identified. The existence of the Round Table, however likely, has never been proven. For now, the Pilgrims Society, a seemingly larger body, is a fine substitute, because it shares many similarities with the "association of helpers" from the Round Table. Read this text from the 1966 book 'Tragedy and Hope - A history of the world in our time', written by Oxford professor Carroll Quigley:
"In 1891, Rhodes organized a secret society with members in a "Circle of Initiates" and an outer circle known as the "Association of Helpers" later organized as the Round Table organization. In 1909-1913, they organized semi-secret groups know as Round Table Groups in the chief British dependencies and the United States..
The Round Table Groups were semi-secret discussion and lobbying groups whose original purpose was to federate the English speaking world along lines laid down by Cecil Rhodes. By 1915, Round Table groups existed in seven countries including England, South Africa, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, India and the United States. Money for their activities originally came from Cecil Rhodes, J.P. Morgan, the Rockefeller and Whitney families and associates of bankers Lazard Brothers and Morgan, Grenfell and Company.
The chief backbone of this organization grew up along the already existing financial cooperation running from the Morgan Bank in New York to a group of international financiers in London led by Lazard Brothers.
Lionel Curtis established in England and each dominion a front organization to the existing local Round Table Group. This front organization called the Royal Institute of Public Affairs, had as its nucleus in each area the existing submerged Round Table Group.
In New York, it was known as the Council on Foreign Relations and was a front for J.P. Morgan and Company in association with the very small American Round Table Group. The American organizers were dominated by the large number of Morgan "experts" including Lamont and Beer, who had gone to the Paris Peace Conference and there became close friends with the similar group of English "experts" which had been recruited by the Milner group. In fact, the original plans for the Royal Institute and the Council on Foreign Relations. In 1928, the Council on Foreign Relations was dominated by the associates of the Morgan bank. Closely allied with this Morgan influence were a small group of Wall Street lawyers whose chief figures were Elihu Root, John W. Davis, the Dulles Brothers, John J. McCloy...
...There does exist and has existed for a generation, an international Anglophile network which operates to some extent in the way the Radical Right believes the Communists act. In fact, this network, which we may identify as the Round Table Groups, has no aversion to cooperating with the Communists, or any other groups, and frequently does so...
...It might be pointed out that the existence of this Wall Street Anglo-American axis is quite obvious once it is pointed out. It is reflected by the fact that such Wall Street luminaries such as John W. Davis, Lewis Douglas, [John] Whitney and Douglas Dillon were appointed to be American ambassadors in London."
If we forget about the other groups, the description of the U.S. and U.K. Round Table Groups as submerged nucleuses of respectively the CFR and the RIIA is the perfect description of the Pilgrims Society. Also, the only name of a person in the quote above, that is not represented in my incomplete Pilgrims members list, is Lionel Curtis. All the other names are confirmed Pilgrims. And what is said here about the large number of Morgan representatives is something I also immediately noticed when I was filling in all the biographies. Even though Rockefeller interests, especially in later times, were just as dominant, the history of the Morgan family really shows their ties to England through
George Peabody and Junius S. Morgan. At the turn of the century, the Morgans wielded enormous power over the United States economy .
Besides the organizations I put in the table above, you will also find that institutions like the Atlantic Institute for International Affairs, Bilderberg, the Bohemian Grove, the Trilateral Commission, the Brookings Institution, the Ford Foundation, the Ditchley Foundations, the Fabian Society, the Japan Society, the Asia Society, the American-Australian Association, and some others, are quite frequently represented. I didn't specifically look for these institutions though, simply because it takes me too much time. Often, these institutes aren't mentioned in the bios of the person you're researching.
The reason that you find quite a few Skull & Bones members (or members who have family in Skull & bones) in the Pilgrims Society is probably because Yale is a prestigious University and a first choice for many law and MBA students. It's also located close to New York. Don't kid yourself however, 20 year old boys don't rule anything. You'll also find at least 5 Scroll & Key members and many more Yale students who haven't been into any society. But as far as I can see, the Pilgrims Society is open to anyone who learns enough, works enough, and winds up in the right place for a Pilgrims invitation. Harvard and Columbia are other common universities where Pilgrims have studied.
1906 - Pilgrims are involved in the secret Algeciras Conference to settle a dispute among the British, Germans, and French about the division of Morocco.
1913 - The earlier mentioned establishment of the Federal Reserve and of course the 1910 Jekyll Island meeting that preceded it.
1917 - Some Pilgrims are said to have been financing the Communist revolution of 1917. Most is known about the partners of Kuhn, Loeb & Co.; Pilgrims Jacob Schiff, Paul Warburg and Otto Kahn.
1919 - Many Pilgrims played an important role in the Versailles peace conferences following WWI. In all the history books I've seen, only the discussions of the 'big three', Woodrow Wilson, Lloyd George and Georges Clemenceau, are emphasized. I'm still looking for all the names involved, but I've already seen quite a few Pilgrims and suspected Pilgrims. In any case, Robert Cecil, chairman of the Supreme Economic Council of the Versailles Peace Treaty was a member. In the same year, he was the chairman of the committee that established the Royal Institute of International Affairs.
1924 - After the German economy was completely taken apart and they couldn't pay their imposed debts anymore, the Reparations Commission Committee of Experts was set up. President Coolidge appointed Pilgrim Charles G. Dawes as chairman. The committee comes up with the so called 'Dawes-plan'.
1927 - It is said that Pilgrim Benjamin Strong (head FED) and Pilgrim Montagu Norman (head Bank of England) had at least one secret meeting in July of this year with their friend Hjalmar Schacht of the German Reichsbank.
1930 - The Young plan, which is named after committee chairman and Pilgrim Owen D. Young, is introduced as a follow up of the Pilgrims concocted Dawes plan, because Germany still can't pay their debts. Hjalmar Schacht doesn't agree with the reparations and quits as the head of the German Reichsbank. The same year Schacht becomes a Fascist, starts bringing all the German industrialists together and becomes the most crucial person for bringing Hitler to power in 1933.
1933 and on - J.P. Morgan and Rockefeller associates are financing Nazi germany. Pilgrims Watson and Watson Jr. of IBM are involved. Pilgrims Douglas Dillon Sr. and Jr. are involved. Pilgrim Averell Harriman is involved. Ford was involved, and looking at the prominent presence of the Ford Foundation in the Pilgrims Society, he probably was a member too.
1934 - Because general Smedley Butler exposes the planned coup, FDR is not overthrown and replaced by a fascist government. The persons financing various fascist elements turn out to be the Pilgrims Morgan Jr., the du Ponts, Louis S. Cates through Phelps-Dodge company, and undoubtedly many other, but unconfirmed, Pilgrims. As for Phelps-Dodge, the Rockefellers had married into that fortune in 1907 through a marriage between Geraldine Rockefeller, daughter of William Rockefeller, and Marcellus Hartley Dodge.
1945 - Nazis, Knights of Malta (SMOM), and elements in the OSS create the so called 'Vatican rat lines', through which thousands of Nazis are smuggled into Spain, South-Africa, and South-America. Pilgrim and SMOM member Allen Dulles played a large role in this project. He also plays a crucial role in releasing and recruiting Nazi intelligence chief Reinhard Gehlen (Le Cercle) so this person can establish the Gehlen Organization. This Gehlen Org becomes the eyes and ears of the CIA in eastern Europe. Reinhard recruits many serious nazis in his organization.
1946 - Pilgrim Francis Beverly Biddle was one of the four primary judges at the Nuremberg trials representing the United States. I'll bet the British judge (and president) of the trials was a member of the British Pilgrims.
1947 - Pilgrims Society member, five-star general and U.S. Secretary of State George C. Marshall introduces his European Recovery Program (ERP).
around 1948 - Pilgrim John J. McCloy oversees the release of Fritz Thyssen, Hjalmar Schacht, Friedrich Flick and Alfred Krupp. They are the main industrialists who built up the Nazi war machine and are close associates of different Pilgrims Society members.
1949 - Pilgrims member and ambassador Lewis Williams Douglas had a daughter, Sharman Douglas, who, according to a very sure ITV (competitor of the BBC), had a 2-year lesbian affair with Queen Elizabeth II's younger sister, Princess Margaret Windsor. Sharman also married Andrew Hay of the Pilgrims. (Normally I wouldn't dive into tabloid topics, but this is just too funny to pass over)
1951 - General Douglas MacArthur, who has just driven back the North-Koreans, is removed from his command when he doesn't accept the decision from the US government to not attack the Chinese forces. Pilgrims Harry Truman, Dean Acheson and George C. Marshall are his main adversaries on this issue. MacArthur is replaced by Pilgrim Matthew B. Ridgway. Senator McCarthy attacks Truman, Acheson and Marshall for being in the communist camp.
1954 - Some of the earliest invites to the Bilderberg conference are Pilgrims Society members; David Rockefeller, George Ball, and Henry Heinz.
1961 - Howard Hughes, owner of Trans World Airlines, is charging Pilgrim Charles C. Tillinghast, Jr., the president of his company, with conspiring with others to take over the ownership the company.
1963 - Pilgrims John J. McCloy and Allen Dulles are members of the Warren Commission. Gerald Ford, a future honorary Pilgrim, is a third member.
1965-1973 - During the Vietnam war, Pilgrim Henry Kissinger is the chief US negotiator for the communist regimes. At the same time, Kissinger and many of his Pilgrims Society buddies were investing massive amounts of capital into the Soviet Union, even though this country continued to supply about 50% of North-Vietnams military arms. Of course, these were allowed to enter North-Vietnam almost unobstructed, because the US government was afraid for an escalation of the conflict if Haiphong harbor was closed off and bombed into oblivion. Pilgrims Society members controlled at least some of the institutions that had to check the goods that were imported into the USSR.
1973 - Pilgrim Edward W. Simon was chairman of the President's Oil Policy Committee from February to December of 1973 (oil crisis started in October in the midst of the Yom Kippur war). He also was an administrator of the Federal Energy Office since December 1973 and was charged with the responsibility of minimizing the effects of the energy crisis and preventing future crises (decided the oil prices and the distribution). Together with Pilgrim Henry Kissinger he was the most important speaker of the 1974 International Energy Conference. In 1973, Henry Kissinger first informed the Pilgrims about the creation of an "International Energy group", which became the International Energy Agency.
1975 - Pilgrim Nelson Rockefeller heads the U.S. President's Commission on CIA Activities Within the United States. It was created in response to a December 1974 report in The New York Times that the CIA had conducted illegal domestic activities, including experiments on U.S. citizens, during the 1960s. The commission was, among other things, responsible for the investigation and publication of Project MKULTRA, a CIA mind control study.
1977 - Pilgrims Society member Edmund de Rothschild attends the 1st World Wilderness Conference. At the 4th conference Maurice Strong will inform everyone that Edmund was the founder of the environmental movement and climate debates everyone has become so accustomed to.
1992 - Pilgrim Lord Bingham of Cornhill heads an inquiry into the Bank of England to find out their responsibility in the BCCI drug laundering scandal. Turns out the Bank of England was just a bit lazy, but didn't do anything on purpose. The persons that owned the BCCI were 1001 Club member like Agha Hasan Abedi and Salem Bin Laden. Kalid bin Mahfouz was another one. Lord Bingham became a member of the very elite Order of Garter in 2005. Some other persons involved with the BCCI scandal were members of the secret international intelligence group Le Cercle.
2001 - Henry Kissinger, who was picked as the first chairman of the 9/11 Commission, was a Pilgrim, not to mention one of the pioneers of psychological warfare in the aftermath of WWII; all in all, a great asset to have on a truth commission. The old vice-chairman of the 9/11 Commission, George John Mitchell, became a director of the CFR in 1995, so chances are very substantial he's a Pilgrim too. The new chairman, Thomas H. Kean, is from a very prominent New Jersey family and has been a chairman of the Carnegie Foundation, so don't be surprised if it turns out that he also attends Pilgrims dinners (or 1001 Club meetings in his case).
2002 - In December of this year, Pilgrims Society member Lord Guthrie, former chief of the Defense Staff and out of office by then, is send to Turkey to discuss a possible invasion of Iraq via Turkey. He becomes an apologist for the Bush and Blair administrations, and warns the public for biological and nuclear attacks by terrorists. According to him, Syria is one of the largest supporters of terrorism. But who else is Lord Guthrie? He's a member of the Knights of Malta, a patron of the Cardinal Hume centre, a director of N.M. Rothschild & Sons, and represents the latter to the Trilateral Commission since 2002. In the past, Guthrie has been appointed Gold Stick to the Queen and Freeman of the City of London. He was also appointed Aide-de-Camp General to the Queen in 1993.
2004 - Pilgrims Society member Lord Peter Inge is part of a five-member panel that looks into the gathered intelligence that was used to justify an invasion in Iraq the year before. All 5 are Privy Councillors and just as the panel's chairman, Lord Inge is a knight of the Order of the Garter.
It is obvious that the Pilgrims Society has a very interesting history and that its membership consists of very influential people. Above all, it seems that the Pilgrims Society represents that old dream of Cecil Rhodes to create a worldwide English-speaking free-trade zone (his exact words), with the dominant position for the Anglo-Saxon race.
Rhodes had also been speculating about a network of secret societies that had to absorb the wealth of the world. In fact, the enormous fortune he left behind was probably used to set up the Pilgrims Society just 4 months after he died. But especially these days, 'free-trade' policies seem to be nothing more than a tool by which western companies wrestle control of foreign markets. This makes it hard to say if their ultimate goal of 'global peace' really is that noble.
In the course the 20th century, especially after WWII, many organizations with similar objectives have sprung up worldwide. Among them are Bilderberg, the Trilateral Commission, the British Invisibles, the European Round Table, the Group of thirty, the European Institute, the Trans-Atlantic Business Dialogue, the 1001 Club, the EU-Japan Business Dialogue, the Pacific Basin Economic Council, Le Cercle, the Multinational Chairman's Group, and dozens more.
In every single case, British and American interests are represented more than adequately, at the very least in leadership positions. Even though recent names are in rather short supply it has already become obvious that we can find most, if not all of these leaders back in the Pilgrims Society. This indicates that we are dealing with one of the most important privately funded institutions of the globalist movement.
But, like I already said, let's not exaggerate by saying that we found 'the puppet masters' or something like that. At any time, there are loads of intelligence operations going on most of the well over a 1000 members know nothing about. Also, looking at the bios, it's obvious that there is considerable infighting going on and that different members can't get along with each other at all. So, as for now, I suggest that we focus our energy on gathering as many names as possible. Then the picture will become clear by itself.
A lot of additional information on the Anglo-American establishment and/or the British Empire can be found in the books of professor Carroll Quigley. The articles on Executive Intelligence Review also contain a lot of insightful information.

With Tony Blair's inexplicable lie in the House of Commons denying attendance at Bilderberg 1998 in Turnberry and now prevarification in the Lords, New Labour clearly has serious jitters over Bilderberg. Has collaboration with the world's most powerful secret society turned our Prime Minister into a nervous traitor? And if he can wriggle out of being prosecuted under the Treason Act 1351 Blair might watch out unless he's charged under the Honours (Prevention of Abuses) Act 1925. Seems like their lies and conspiracies are finally catching up with New Labour.
Included here too is some fascinating insight into the links between occultists, war planning, and the strange wish of occultic war leaders such as Adolf Hitler... to be God. Finally Alf Mendes briongs us a look at how far up the international financial architecture the money launderers have penetrated.

1. Government accused of cover up over presence of ministers at Bilderberg conference
The independent Labour Peer, Lord Stoddart of Swindon has accused the Government of a cover-up because of its failure to answer two written questions he has laid down, regarding the attendance of Ministers at the Bilderberg Conference in Ottawa earlier this year.
Lord Stoddart, Chairman of the all-party Campaign for an Independent Britain said: "I simply asked if any of Her Majesty's Ministers had attended the Bilderberg Conference in Ottawa in June this year.
The first answer I received on 24th October gave me a recitation of the rules on ministerial visits and overseas travel, but failed completely to respond to the question I was actually asking. I therefore requested an answer to my original question. All I received on 2nd
November was another, similar, recitation of the rules on when minister's travel expenses would be published, which I didn't ask for and certainly don't need!
"The Government's continued failure to answer a straightforward question, is quite outrageous and can only lead to the suspicion that it is attempting to cover-up the presence of ministers at the Bilderberg Conference. Why else would they be trying so strenuously to avoid giving me a straight answer? I shall certainly be pursuing the matter with the Government during the next session of Parliament".
Lord Stoddart's intervention follows a similar question put to the European Commission by Jeffrey Titford MEP, about the presence of Competition Commissioner Neelie Kroes at the Ottawa Conference. The Commission's less than convincing reply was that Ms Kroes was invited 'in her capacity as European Commissioner, but she did not participate on behalf of the Commission'.
The Bilderberg organisation is widely suspected of being involved in making preparations for world government. It meets in secret and does not produce minutes of its discussion. Participants are usually of an extremely high level in politics, industry, the media and other key sectors.
The full text of Lord Stoddart's latest question and the reply from Lord Bassam of Brighton is as follows:
Official Travel: Bilderberg Conference
Lord Stoddart of Swindon asked Her Majesty's Government:
Further to the Written Answer by the Lord Bassam of Brighton on 24
October (WA 231), whether they will now answer the original Question
asked by the Lord Stoddart of Swindon (HL7569) concerning attendance of
Ministers at the Bilderberg Conference in Ottawa between 8 and 11
Lord Bassam of Brighton:
Details of any Cabinet Ministers attending the conference in an
official capacity will be published in the annual list of Cabinet
Ministers' overseas travel for 2006-07, which will be published as
soon as possible after the end of the financial year. The overall cost
of all ministerial travel during 2006-07 will be published at the same
time. Information on other Ministers' travel is not collected centrally

of the Illuminati of Adam Weishaupt. In view of his tirelessly

Magic and the fate of nations
...The French and Russian revolutions were among the greatest upheavals
in modern history. During them many million people lost their lives,
and scores of millions more had loved ones killed or were reduced to
beggary. One of Satan's titles is Lord of Misrule. No circumstances
could have better served his purpose.
It has been said that, as a young man, Winston Churchill was a member
of the Illuminati of Adam Weishaupt. In view of his tirelessly
inquiring mind, it would not be very surprising if that were so. But
one is reminded of the saying 'A man who at the age of twenty is not a
Communist has no heart; if he is still a Communist at the age of
thirty, he has no head.'
Of one thing I feel positive. During the war Churchill had no truck
with occultism of any kind. For three years it was my good fortune, as
a member of the Joint Planning Staff of the War. Cabinet and therefore
one of Churchill's staff officers, to work in the fortress basement
under Whitehall, from which the war was directed.
I state this as evidence to my readers that I am no woolly-minded
mystic, but have my feet very firmly planted on the ground. Unlike the
majority of the other Planners, doubtless owing to the fact I was
already a very well known author, I was' privileged to count among my
friends General Lord Ismay, Major Sir Desmond Morton and Commander
'Tommy' Thompson, R.N., who were respectively the Prime Min-ister's
Chief Staff Officer, his Personal Assistant, and his personal
Aide-de-Camp; so were all constantly with him. All three lunched and
dined with me, and I with them, on many occasions. (cannot believe that
I would not have picked up at least a rumour of it from one of them,
had our great war leader owed anything to the Power of Darkness.
There is evidence that Hitler expressed great interest in Satanic
ceremonies, and an American correspondent writes to me that Hitler once
confided to Rauschnig that he was founding a secret order at the second
stage of which a man-god would be worshipped throughout the world - and
presumably Hitler intended to be that man...............

3. Nazi black magic and the anti-christ order
By George Bruce
Nazi black magic and the anti-christ order
Heinrich Himmler, whose arrest as a traitor Hitler had ordered on 28
April 1945 for negotiating with the Allies, was captured by a British
patrol on 23 May. A few hours later he killed himself with cyanide,
and, dying as Reichsführer-S.S., set his final seal upon the
destruction of the world's most sinister order, which the Third Reich's
military defeat had already inflicted.
Hitler had sown seeds of the deepest hatred between Nazis and
Communists in his teaching and in the cruelty and mass murder he had
launched in Russia. Now it was the turn of the Soviets. Nazism reached
its end in a Berlin turned into a battleground of unparalleled
violence, fire and brutality as the Soviet forces dealt blows of
destruc-tion and revenge. It was as if the Satanic essence of Nazism
shone through the flames and the ruins.
>From 20 November 1945 to 1 October 1946 the Nuremberg International
Tribunal tried 24 members of the Nazi hierarchy as war criminals,
accusing them of crimes 'against Peace, War Crimes and Crimes against
Humanity...' Von Papen, Schacht ,and Hans Fritsche were acquitted.
Twelve were sentenced to death, Bormann in his absence. Goering
poisoned himself shortly before he was due to be executed. Ribbentrop,
Streicher, Keitel, Kaltenbrunner, Frank, Frick, Jodl, Rosenberg,
Sauckel and Seyss-Inquart were hanged. Von Schirach and Speer were
sentenced to 20 years, von Neurath to 15 and Admiral Doenitz to 10
years. Lesser lights, such as obscure S.S. murderers, were tried before
the various Allied Military Tribunals.
Many Nazis thus paid with their lives for the misery and death they
unleashed upon the world in seeking to clamp their creed of hatred and
domination upon its peoples.
Can the mystery of the evil of Nazism be explained? Was there a Satanic
nucleus at the heart of it? One inter-pretation of its nature that
should be mentioned is the link between Nazism and the alleged
attachment to black magic and occultism of Hitler and his inner circle,
in-cluding Goering, Himmler, Goebbels, Ley and, in the early days,
Dietrich Eckart and Professor Karl Haushofer. Hitler, according to what
may seem to many people a far-fetched belief, was the medium through
whom contact was made with supernatural powers of evil. Hermann
Rauschning, who observed Hitler with a cold and analytical eye,
declares that he was a medium, 'possessed by forces outside himself -
almost demoniacal forces'. Rudolf Olden, political editor of the
Berliner Tageblatt in the days of Nazism's rise to power, remarked how
the overwhelming, almost superhuman Niagara of words that poured forth
during Hitler's speeches sometimes reached a climax during which he
literally 'spoke in tongues' and seemed possessed. André
François-Poncet, French Ambassador to Berlin, also referred to this
apparent demoniacal possession.
Hitler's mediumistic powers supposedly provided the link with Satanic
forces which spoke through him and led to the black magic and occult
practices in the inner circle of Nazi leaders.
Rauschning also reports in Hitler Speaks a warning given to Hitler by a
percipient woman in his circle, one of the few who dared to speak
forthrightly to him. 'My Fuhrer, do not touch black magic,' she said.
'As yet both white and black magic are open to you. But once you have
embarked upon black magic it will dominate your destiny. It will hold
you captive. Don't choose the quick and easy successes. 'There lies
before you the power over a realm of pure spirits. Do not allow
yourself to be led away from your true path by earth-bound spirits
which will rob you of creative power.'
Apparently Hitler disregarded the warning and was dominated by the evil
forces, who, bribing him with early successes, forced him along the
path of their own choosing towards an inferno which destroyed him,
split Germany and impoverished Europe and Britain for two decades.
To believe this theory one must suspend rational judge-ment, but are
there not in any case fields of human experi-ence which it cannot
explain? And does not this theory of Hitler being dominated by evil
supernatural forces throw light for the first time on the reason for
Auschwitz, Treb-linka, the deaths of six million Jews, the plan to
murder 33 million of the Slav population of Russia, the readiness to
sacrifice three or four million of Germany's young man-hood in war and,
finally, the long-term aim, reported by Fabian von Schlabendorff, for
the total and permanent destruction of Christianity throughout the
In Ernst Röhm's expressive phrase, the Nazis were out to lift the
world off its hinges, to destroy the power both of the proletariat and
the middle classes and to found a new order of society to accord with
the commands of the demonic voices which spoke through Hitler. 'I will
tell you a secret,' he told Rauschning. 'I am founding an Order... In
my Ordensburgen there will stand as a statue for wor-ship the figure of
the magnificent, self-ordaining God--Man...' Hitler at this point
checked himself with the remark that there were matters of which even
he must not permit himself to speak.
Until more research has been devoted to the issue of Hitler's link with
supernatural forces the subject must remain a closed book. Perhaps we
should content ourselves with the words of General von dem
Bach-Zelewski, at the Nuremberg International Tribunal: 'You will never
know the whole truth.'
4. MONEY-LAUNDERERS TO THE GLOBAL ELITE
by Alf Mendes - 03Nov06 - bilderberg.org
It is an indisputable fact that the collapse of the USSR in 1991 was
the most significant post-WWII event on the world scene (as the
Americans would be the first to admit) - leading, as it did,
inevitably, to the cataclysmic scenario facing us today. It is thus
essential to examine this said event in greater detail if we are to
reach a clearer understanding of the matter - always keeping in mind
that it was but one more step in the stand-off between the capitalist
West and the communist USSR - and that its border with that unstable
nation, Afghanistan, would, understandably, play a crucial role in
subsequent events - given the fact that the Soviet Republics in that
region were of Muslim orientation. This was exacerbated by the
following events preceding the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979:
(a) In Afghanistan, Mohammed Daoud ousted his brother-in-law, King
Zahir Shah, in 1973; (b) In 1978, Mir Akbar Parcham, leader of the
communist-orientated Parcham Party (of Afghanistan), was murdered &
Daoud ordered the arrest of other leading figures of the Parcham Party
- which resulted in the Parcham Party taking over the government in a
coup. Daoud was killed.
As revealed by Zbigniew Brzezinski: "on July 3, 1979, unknown to the
American public and Congress, President Jimmy Carter secretly
authorized $500 million to create an international terrorist movement
that would spread Islamic fundamentalism in Central Asia and
'de-stabilise' the Soviet Union. The CIA called this 'Operation
Cyclone' and in the following years poured $4 billion into setting up
Islamic training schools in Pakistan (Taliban means 'student').
Young zealots were sent to the CIA's spy training camp in Virginia,
where future members of al-Qaeda were taught 'sabotage skills' -
terrorism... In Pakistan, they were directed by British MI6 officers
and trained by the SAS".
Five months later, and well-aware of Ops. Cyclone, in December '79,
the USSR invaded Afghanistan, and after a long and devastating war with
guerrilla opposition forces (the mujahideen) the last of the Soviet
troops left Afghanistan in February1989, their economy and rubles in
tatters. America's role in destabilising the USSR (as noted above)
therefore calls for closer scrutiny, and from the vantage point of
hindsight, the fact that in the aftermath of the collapse of the USSR
the American oil companies (with others) quickly bought their way into
the vast reserves of Russian oil and gas is surely proof enough that
this was one of the crucial aims of America's strategy.
This 'destabilisation' was implemented, primarily, by
money-laundering - an illegal method used by political, military,
intelligence, business, drug cartels, and the Sicilian Mafia - better
known as 'Black Ops.'. Two Americans, Leo Emil Wanta, and the
notorious Marc (Reich) Rich, were the main players in this - but it
must not be forgotten that the Medellin Cartel and the Sicilian Mafia
also played a crucial role in this money-laundering scam.
Leo Emil Wanta had worked at the White House, the National Security
Council, the Central Intelligence Agency and six other government
agencies during his career (which lasted from 1963 until his arrest in
1993), holding numerous jobs: in the DEA, the CIA, and Department of
Defense - many of a secretive nature. And as for the Soviet Union - in
a publicised interview he had stated that, during Reagan's
administration, and working under Bill Casey's Special Operations
Branch, Black Ops. (see above) "he had dealt with both the fusion
bomb and the destabilisation of the ruble" - in conjunction with Kok
Howie Kwong of the Chinese Secret Service!
As evidence of America's enormous influence on the global political
scene, Wanta was acting as Somalian ambassador to Switzerland when he
was arrested by authorities there on July 7, 1993, in Geneva, held for
four months, then extradited to Wisconsin to stand trial for state
taxes of $14,000 owed for the years 1982 and 1988., and sentenced to 22
years in prison, for a crime which he was not guilty of. He had, in
fact, paid the sum noted above twice - under protest! It later
transpired that the Wisconsin revenue agent at the trial had fiddled
Wantas' state tax returns: a print out from the State in December
1995 revealed that the sum he owed was $00.15!
Intriguingly, on September 21st 1996 - and while in prison - he wrote a
letter to Hillary Rodham Clinton, referring to "U.S. President Bill
Clinton's Short Term Notes and IMF Sale of Bullion", reminding her both
of his "de-stabilization of the Soviet Union Rubles (SUR)", and how he
had "prevented the Soviet & Italian Mafiosa from the Soviet Funds in
favour of our U.S. Treasury & Metals Accounts in excess of US$ 150
billion" - closing his letter with the somewhat threatening statement:
"Until my legal release from the un-consitutional/ false incarceration
in Wisconsin--as a diplomat & non-resident--I am legally interested in
the corporate placement of short-term notes & I.M.F. gold bullion/troy
ounce delivery contract. Thank you for your kind assistance in this
timely situation". In plain english: if he was not released, he would
'spill the beans'. On Jan. 10, 1997, Wanta received a reply to this
letter from Erskine Bowles at the White House, as a result of which, on
February 1, 1997, after Bowles had checked with W.H. Agency Relations,
Leo Wanta was released on $90,000 bail. His 'threat' had proven
Here, it is important to note that at one point "Wanta had bank
accounts at Metishe Bank in Moscow, Avenue Bank on the Champs-Elysee in
Paris, Credito Italiano in Milan, Anker Bank in Geneva, Swiss Bank
Corporation in Geneva, the Algemeine Spaar in Brussels, the
Zentralsparkasse und Kommerzialbank in Vienna, Creditanstalt Bankverein
in Vienna, and--the perennial favorite of money launderers--Citibank in
Milan, New York, and Los Angeles".  Furthermore, according to
Wanta's Los Angeles attorney, he and President George Bush Snr. had
"set up the Ameritrust account in the Credit Suisse bank for the
government to use in case it needed to counter terrorists from
Inasmuch as banks bear the ultimate responsibility for the movement of
money - including that which is 'laundered'. Their role in this
matter will therefore be looked at more closely below........

5. I won't step aside in cash for peerages case says Goldsmith
05.11.06 Lord Goldsmith is refusing to step aside
Attorney General Lord Goldsmith is refusing to stand down from advising
the Crown Prosecution Service on whether Tony Blair should face charges
in the cash for peerages inquiry.
The former Labour donor, a close ally of the Prime Minister, is
resisting mounting pressure to show the process is independent by
Ken MacDonald, the director of public prosecutions, has already
declared that he will take no part in the case because he is a former
legal colleague of Mr Blair's wife Cherie.
Constitutional Affairs Minister Harriet Harman said yesterday she was
'sure' Lord Goldsmith, whose peerage and job both came from Mr Blair,
would do the same.
But his office insisted last night he still expected to be consulted on
whether charging Mr Blair or anyone else was in the public interest.
The focus on the Attorney General came with Downing Street said to be
in a 'blind panic' over the leaking of an email allegedly from Mr
Blair's chief of staff, Jonathan Powell.
According to one report, the email discussed honours and said: 'ML will
not be happy about this.'
That was alleged to be a reference to Lord (Michael) Levy, the Prime
Minister's chief fundraiser, and implies he had a say in the handing
out of honours. Lord Levy, one of those arrested and questioned, has
strongly denied wrongdoing.
Detectives are likely to question Mr Blair under caution in the next
few weeks. Should they uncover any evidence of corruption, Lord
Goldsmith would have the final say on whether prosecutions should be
Though he has rejected 'in the strongest possible terms' any suggestion
he would be politically motivated, MPs have raised furious objections
to his involvement.
Officers at Scotland Yard are also said to be 'anxious' about it.
Shadow Home Secretary David Davis said yesterday the Attorney General's
position was 'untenable'.
'It would be improper for him to be involved,' Mr Davis said. 'The old
adage that the law must be seen to be done applies here.
'No matter what the integrity of the man, if the Attorney refuses to
give permission for a prosecution no one in the land will believe it is
a judgment made impartially.
'If a judge finds he is presiding over a case involving someone he
knows, he steps aside. If a Cabinet Minister finds he is considering a
planning matter involving his constituency, someone else does it. It's
absolutely necessary for public confidence that Lord Goldsmith does the
Miss Harman told ITV's The Sunday Edition programme it was 'premature'
to ask whether the Attorney General should be involved in a decision
because the police had not yet handed their file to the CPS. But she
added: 'I think you can hould follow Mr MacDonald's example, she
replied: 'Well, I'm sure the Attorney General will if it comes to it.'
Worried MPs point to the way the Attorney General notoriously changed
his legal advice on the Iraq war to say a military invasion was
The U-turn raised suspicions he had been leant on by Mr Blair,
something he has always denied.
Paradoxically, some senior Labour figures are understood to be nervous
that Lord Goldsmith may be more inclined to give the go-ahead to
charges following the Iraq furore.
He is known to have been bruised by the allegations that he was
'nobbled' by the Prime Minister.
Of the prospect of his agreeing to cash-for-honours charges, one Labour
source said: 'It would be a fairly dramatic means for Lord Goldsmith to
demonstrate his independence from Government, wouldn't it?'
The police investigation was prompted by revelations that a string of

Detectives have so far interviewed around 50 potential witnesses and
suspects. A string of Labour and Downing Street officials, as well as
former Tory leader Michael Howard, have been questioned, leaving Mr
Blair as the only key player still to be spoken to.
It is unprecedented for a serving Prime Minister to be questioned over
allegations of corruption, and would be a grave humiliation in the
dying days of his Premiership.

PEPIS#80 Blair lies again in Commons about Bilderberg attendance
see also www.bilderberg.org/2006.htm#Stoddart
Nick Kollerstrom and I discovered yesterday that Verint, the Israeli security firm responsible for security and surveillance technology on the London Underground both now and during the 7/7 attacks, is being investigated for insider dealing. In a seperate matter one of their ex Chief Executives was on the run and tracked down and has just been arrested in Africa. Nice to know the London Underground is in such safe hands.
Unfortunately www.bilderberg.org is down this weekend. Could that be because I just posted testimony that Blair most definately WAS at Turnberry at the 1998 Bilderberg meeting contrary to his testimony in the Commons last week? I spoke to the member of staff at the Hotel who served him his breakfast and shall be contacting Norman Baker MP tomorrow to give him the simple honest facts that Mr Blair seems unable to. Just as he lied before to a similar question from Christopher Gill MP in 1998 (http://www.bilderberg-mirror.org.uk/bilder.htm#Blair).
Or was it this outstanding article I posted on my new forum (www.bilderberg.org/phpbb2/) from the UK Daily Mail (which now seems to have moved to the left of the Guardian on the Muslim veils issue) about the web closing around the Diana conspirators, proving that there was much going on in Paris that we have never previously been told? Feast your eyes and intellect on this brilliant piece of investigative journalism from Sue Reid at the Mail which is included with the Blair Bilderberg lies story below.
Blair Quizzed on Bilderberg Denies attending any elite conferences in the House of Commons. Is he lying again?
Steve Watson / Infowars.net | October 20 2006 http://www.infowars.net/articles/October2006/201006Bilderberg.htm
Tony Blair was questioned in the House of Commons yesterday on his involvement with the secretive Bilderberg Group. Liberal Democrat MP, Norman Baker asked Blair to provide a full answer to a previous 12th October question about Bilderberg and whether Mr Blair had had any involvement in Bilderberg Conferences since he became Prime Minister in 1997.
The entry into the House of Commons records is below and can be viewed online here:
Prime Minister Bilderberg Group Norman Baker: To ask the Prime Minister pursuant to the answer of 12 October 2006, Official Report, column 862W, on the Bilderberg Group, if he will provide the information requested in respect of himself since 1997. 
The Prime Minister: I have not attended any such meetings.
Is Blair telling the truth? Certainly he has lied about previous attendances to Bilderberg meetings, most notably the 1993 conference which he attended before he'd even become leader of his own party. One year after his attendance Blair became leader of the Labour party and a rapid rise to power, culminating in his election as Prime Minister in 1997, ensued that baffled many political analysts.
In 1998 an MP asked Blair the same question to which he gave the same answer, that he had never attended a Bilderberg meeting. However, the evidence clearly shows he was there. A number of mainstream media reports, plus the official Bilderberg attendee list, confirm that Blair attended Bilderberg in Athens in 1993. Furthermore, Parliamentary records prove he was there with long term member, and supposed opposition party stalwart Ken Clarke.
Tony Gosling at Bilderberg.org has tirelessly worked to expose the influence that the Bilderberg group has on world events. Here he analyses the incredible rise to power that other Western leaders have experienced after attending Bilderberg meetings.
Norman Baker, the MP who questioned Blair, has recently made waves in British politics by launching into a private, year-long investigation into the death of Dr David Kelly, the scientist who found himself under siege after apparently accusing the government of 'sexing up' the case for war to a BBC journalist.
Kelly, the UK's leading weapons inspector, was found dead under a tree on Harrowdown Hill in Oxfordshire after telling associates and friends that he feared that's what would happen to him. An inquiry set up under Lord Hutton duly reported that Dr Kelly had committed suicide. In a brave attempt to reveal the truth, Norman Baker disputes this conclusion.
Baker has also recently suggested that he sees inconsistencies in the official story of the 9/11 attacks.
This year's Bilderberg Conference was held in Ottawa Canada and was covered in depth by Alex Jones and the Infowars team who went through hell and high water to protest and raise awareness of the event.
Bilderberg has a proven history of acting in a kingmaker capacity, yet they are unelected and unaccountable to anyone. Their directives are driven towards undermining national sovereignty and establishing a world order that benefits their elite interests. Both Bill Clinton and Tony Blair were "groomed" by Bilderberg before becoming President and Prime Minister and the mainstream media reported that Bilderberg selected John Edwards as John Kerry's running mate in 2004.
Further Parliamentary records indicate that the shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer attended the Bilderberg conference this year. This is interesting given that Gordon Brown, a man on the verge of becoming the next Prime Minister, attended the Bilderberg Conference when he was shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer in 1991.
A House of Lords minute entry dated 11th October also indicates that an answer is awaited on whether any ministers attended this year's Bilderberg Conference:
The Lord Stoddart of Swindon-To ask Her Majesty's Government whether any Ministers attended the Bilderberg Conference in Ottawa between 8th and 11th June; if so, whether they attended in a Ministerial or private capacity; whether they made contributions to debates; and, if so, on which subjects. [CO] (HL7569)
It seems that some members of The Houses want to know exactly who is attending Bilderberg meetings and in what capacity.
By SUE REID, Daily Mail Last updated at 10:57am on 17th June 2006
Astonishing claims by new witnesses are being examined by British
detectives investigating Diana's death. They seem incredible. But if
true, they could rock the Royal Family to its foundations.
On the night that Diana, Princess of Wales died, the lights of the
British Embassy - less than a mile from the accident spot in Paris
- blazed until dawn finally broke over the French capital.
Inside the imposing building, diplomats summoned from their sleep by
the British ambassador, Sir Michael Jay, struggled to monitor the
tragedy that was unfolding.
Millions of words have been written about the moment that Diana, with
her Muslim boyfriend Dodi Fayed, smashed into pillar 13 of the Pont
d'Alma road tunnel as they were being driven from the Ritz Hotel in a
black Mercedes at 12.20am on Sunday, August 31, 1997.
Ever since, the precise chronology of the fateful night and the roles
played by the Royal Family and the Government have been accepted almost
without serious challenge.
Yet the Mail can reveal today that new eye-witnesses have emerged in
the past few weeks with explosive testimony which raises profound
questions about the influence of the House of Windsor and the
Establishment over events surrounding the Princess's death.
These fresh accounts include the astonishing claim that the Queen's
most senior and trusted courtier was seen in Paris, at the British
Embassy, half an hour before the crash.
Furthermore, they include a baffling allegation that the RAF crew which
flew Tony Blair from his Sedgefield constituency to London to greet the
Princess's repatriated body had been on continual standby to make the
flight from two days earlier - when Diana was still alive.
During this investigation, the Mail has also received confirmation that
two diplomats working for the secret intelligence service MI6 were
operating at the British Embassy in Paris during the weeks before
These two senior men - who have both enjoyed glittering careers -
have admitted their intelligence roles to Lord Stevens, the ex-head of
Scotland Yard who is heading the official inquiry into whether there
was any conspiracy to murder the Princess.
In the Paris crash, Dodi was killed outright and the Princess was at
first thought to have survived. Yet despite attempts by surgeons, she
was declared beyond medical help at the Pitie Salpetriere hospital at
By then, dozens of phone calls had flashed between the British Embassy
and Balmoral Castle, the royal retreat in Scotland where the Queen and
Diana's ex-husband, Prince Charles, were holidaying with Princes
William and Harry, then aged 15 and 12.
The Queen was the first to be told of the accident, at 2am, when she
was woken by her personal page. Still in her dressing gown, she and
Prince Philip anxiously paced the tartan-carpeted corridors throughout
Alerted immediately, Prince Charles retired to his private sitting room
next to the Queen's dressing room. There, he made calls and answered
those from Paris coming into the castle's switchboard and his mobile
On the ground floor of the castle, the Queen's deputy private secretary
Sir Robin Janvrin based himself in the equerries' room, where he also
fielded incoming messages.
Most pertinently, Sir Robin was on duty because his superior - the
Queen's private secretary, Sir Robert Fellowes, a plummy-voiced Old
Etonian and Princess Diana's brother-in-law - had taken a weekend's
Meanwhile, the Prime Minister, who was in his North-East constituency,
is said to have been woken by a call from Sir Michael Jay which had
been forwarded by a secure satellite phone via Downing Street.
At first, he was told the Princess had been involved in an accident and
then, later, of her death. It was then he began working on that
memorable - and apparently impromptu - speech which he delivered
several hours later, describing Diana as the 'People's Princess'.
It was a fitting title and one that the millions mourning Diana
Yet just as the outpouring of grief continued in the days after the
crash, so, too, have those nagging doubts - and conspiracy theories
- about Diana's death, which refuse to abate.
As a result, Lord Stevens's team of ten detectives have interviewed
hundreds of people whose lives crossed Diana's own. Prince Charles
has been questioned. Sir Michael Jay, now Permanent Secretary at the
Foreign Office, has been asked to outline his role on the night of the
In a dramatic development in recent weeks, Sir Robert Fellowes - now
Lord Fellowes - has been asked about his whereabouts during that
Significantly, the detectives are also planning to speak to Maud
Morel-Coujard, the French legal official who oversaw the police
operation on the night of the crash. Indeed, she was waiting at the
hospital when Diana was brought there by ambulance just after 2am.
She is in a unique position to know exactly what happened and,
crucially, her evidence may give credence to the allegations about Lord
Fellowes, Mr Blair's flight and the two spies.
Her recollections may also explain the feverish volume of
communications between Paris, London and Scotland that night.
Mme Morel-Coujard is expected to say that some instructions on the
treatment of the dying Princess were issued by Sir Michael Jay, who was
also at the hospital. He was, in turn, receiving his orders via his
mobile from the British Embassy, Balmoral and Downing Street.
Most contentiously, Mme Morel-Coujard will reveal that a decision to
embalm Diana's body two hours before it was flown back to England was
made by 'the British authorities'. (Indeed, French law explicitly bans
the practice if a post-mortem examination is planned. This is because
the preserving chemical formaldehyde corrupts toxicology tests,
including those for pregnancy.)
Her revelations will stoke the controversy over why Diana's body
should have undergone this process prior to such a key forensic
examination, which took place on the Sunday at 8pm at a West London
Was it - as some continue to maintain, despite denials - because
Diana was pregnant with Dodi's baby? And did someone want such an
embarrassing fact kept secret?
Recently, the notion of Diana being pregnant was vehemently discounted
in the Mail on Sunday by Dominic Lawson, the husband of Diana's close
friend Rosa Monckton.
He wrote: "It is in a way obscene that such speculation is the subject
of a public inquiry (by Lord Stevens)."
He explained his wife had spent a week with Diana before her death and
had told Lord Stevens's team that the Princess could not possibly have
been pregnant with Dodi's baby.
He added: "Rosa felt obliged to reveal that, when they said goodbye on
August 20, 1997, Diana's period had started and therefore it was
biologically impossible for her to have been pregnant at the time of
So what evidence has Lord Stevens's investigation uncovered so far?
During his three-year inquiry - which has cost £2million - he has
let slip little about his findings. But at a book festival last month,
he admitted new witnesses had been found who may provide fresh clues.
He is now writing an interim report (it is expected to be finished by
September) for the Royal coroner, Michael Burgess, who will hold an
inquest next year once Lord Stevens has completed a final analysis that
includes the testimony provided by the new eye-witnesses.
The Mail has learned they include two men with extraordinary tales. The
first, whom we will call Mr X, was based at the British Embassy in
Paris and formerly worked for the Foreign Office in London.
His tantalising evidence emerged only recently through a third party.
If true, it will link the Royal Family to events in Paris on the
weekend of the Princess's death.
Mr X is said to be a middle-aged, English wireless operator at the
He came on duty in the early evening of August 30, expecting his night
shift to be routine. From his office in the communications room,
encrypted phone calls and messages were sent from the embassy via UK
listening stations to Downing Street, the heads of Whitehall
departments and, if necessary, senior aides of the Royal Family.
Mr X was proud of his job and is an ardent royalist. However, something
unexpected happened that night which he found deeply troubling. He says
that just before midnight (as Diana was preparing to leave the Ritz
Hotel with Dodi) two well-spoken men burst through the door of the
communications room. Described as "public school", they brusquely
ordered Mr X to leave his post and not to return until told.
Mr X kept silent about this pertinent episode until 2000 because he had
signed the Official Secrets Act.
But then, apparently, he named one of the men to a third party.
Exploding with anger, he explained: "It was that b*****d Fellowes. He
turfed me out of my own office. He was in Paris the night Diana died."
Of course, Mr X may have been mistaken. Well-spoken Englishmen in smart
suits are apt to sound and look very similar. Furthermore, Mr X only
saw the two men for a few minutes. But his story, however incredible,
is being actively investigated by Lord Stevens and his team.
The Mail understands that in an initial conversation with the Diana
squad, Lord Fellowes has said he was enjoying a break at his Norfolk
estate with his wife - Diana's sister, Lady Jane Fellowes. He has
dismissed the claim he was in Paris that weekend or any part of the
night Diana died.
And what of the second new witness, whom we will call Mr Y? He has come
forward with a scenario which, if true, will also shed doubt on the
official version of Diana's death.
The Mail understands that he was interviewed at length by Lord
Stevens's detectives recently. Mr Y was one of the security staff on
duty at Tony Blair's Sedgefield constituency during the weekend that
It was one of the first weekends the Labour Prime Minister had spent
there with his family since his election. When news arrived overnight
that Diana was dead, Mr Blair's weekend, which had been largely free of
public engagements, was thrown into disarray.
After delivering his 'People's Princess' tribute, he returned to London
to receive Diana's body at Northolt airport at 5pm on the Sunday.
The Prime Minister's wife and their three children were put on a
scheduled British Midland flight from Teesside airport at tea-time for
them to return to Downing Street. Normally, the Prime Minister would
have travelled with them.
But instead, he boarded an RAF plane piloted by a crew based in
Scotland which had flown to Teesside. Waiting on the tarmac for Mr
Blair was Mr Y.
Idly chatting to the co-pilot, he was told something very strange.
The co-pilot, according to information now with the Diana squad, asked
him: "What's really going on? We've been on standby in Scotland
since 5pm on Friday waiting to make this flight to Northolt with the
Incredibly, and if Mr Y's memory of his conversation with the
co-pilot is correct, it would mean that Diana's death was not only
expected - it was actually planned.
Yet can that really be true? Or is it just another fantastic conspiracy
theory, one of the countless that still surround the Princess's death?
Could Mr Y have perhaps misinterpreted the words of the RAF co-pilot?
Or has his memory played tricks about events which happened almost a
Mr Y's claim is just one of the many mysteries that are now being
unravelled, checked and re-examined by the Diana squad.
Perhaps none of the unanswered questions is more puzzling than the
roles of the two MI6 officers who were based at the British Embassy in
Paris. Both were listed on the embassy's staff list as diplomats. Yet
one had mysteriously only just been posted to the French capital a few
days before the crash.
Their names first came to the attention of the Diana squad two years
ago when a continuous stream of informants - including one of
particular significance because of his position in Britain's special
forces - insisted that the pair were spies who were both implicated
in the Princess's death.
Significantly, in one instance, the Diana squad was passed a nine-line
note on a flimsy piece of paper purporting to come from an insider at
the headquarters of the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency. It has been
seen by the Mail and names both men.
Then it adds: "If you are brave enough, dig deeper to learn about them.
Both MI6. Both were involved at the highest level in the murder of the
The files at the Diana squad headquarters, of course, are stacked high
with such wild allegations from shadowy informants. Many have a habit
of being unprovable or are simply the imaginings of over-fertile minds.
However, the Mail has learned that both these men, in their mid-40s,
have been interviewed by officers about their movements on the weekend
the Princess died. They were given permission to speak about their
roles for the first time by the head of MI6, John Scarlett.
The men have produced tickets and documents dating from 1997 which
prove they were not in Paris that weekend. One was in the South of
France with his wife and in-laws. The other was taking a short trip to
Both have told Lord Stevens they only returned to the British Embassy,
overlooking the eternally fashionable Rue du Faubourg St Honore near
the Champs Elysees, after Diana's body had left French soil for
That answer may not surprise Lord Stevens. But equally, it won't stop
him looking into the matter further. From the start of his inquiry, he
promised that his team would "go wherever the evidence takes us" in the
quest for the truth about Diana's death.
And, if necessary, that includes the powerful inner sanctums of the

3. UK Far Right Terror Raid Doesn't Make Headlines - Despite 'biggest'
Good old Mr Webster Tarpley (www.tarpley.net and www.waronfreedom.org)
and others appear to have successfully tracked down the real
purpetrators of the 911 attacks at last, within US Special Forces
perversely operating under the code-name of an annual anti-terror
exercise called Able Danger/Able Warrior. This research and much much
more is contained in the latest edition of Tarpley's book '911
Synthetic Terror, made in USA'.
It's looking increasingly likely that what happened on that fateful day
in 2001 is that a anti-terrorist exercise suddenly turned into a live
attack under the watch of Special Forces Commander at the time General
Peter Schoomacher who's now been promoted to US Army Chief of Staff.
As the net of evidence closes around the General and it looks
increasingly likely that he will be questioned over his failure to
defend the US on September 11th 2001 it seems he's convinced that the
only way out of this is to go for war, war and more war in a frenzied
attempt to distract attention from his alleged crimes. After all he may
prefer the deaths of thousands, even millions of innocent people to his
own arrest, trial and all the embarassment that would entail.
Chinese military and financial clout may be one of the only global
elements with enough weight to stop the Iran attack. Could this be
related to Henry Kissinger's present trip to court China's favour?
As a small answer to this monstrous scenario I have drawn up my own
analysis of the best way to stop rogue elements within our own military
and financial establishment from scapegoating Muslims and anyone else
in their false-flag attacks such as 911 and 7/7 which you can read,
copy, circulate and comment on here
If you haven't seen it I am now selling the 2 hour DVD lecture by
Webster Tarpley on this very subject and the history of false flag
attacks (see details at www.bilderberg.org/videos.htm).
God only knows how he manages to make such a doom-laden subject so
A period of quiet, prayer, meditation and fellowship with others who
understand the enormity of the disaster that would follow a US/Israeli
attack on Iran might be appropriate right now.

There is simply no question in the international press: the attacks on
Lebanon by the Israeli armed forces constitute war crimes comparable or
worse than those perpetrated by Nazi Germany on defenseless civilians
(ex Belgium) in WWII. Amnesty International has documented the
deliberate destruction of civilian infrastructure, as well as attacks
on civilians, and called for a war crimes investigation.
While Europeans are appalled, the Arab street is celebrating what they
see as a successful military effort by Hezbollah against one of the
world's best equipped and trained armies, essentially a division of the
U.S. armed forces but with far superior soldiers than ours. About
100-150 Hezbollah fighters were killed in the Israeli war on Lebanon,
similar to the number of dead Israeli soldiers (officially 118 killed
by enemy fire). The big difference is that 1200 Lebanese civilians
were killed by Israeli shells and bombs, while only 30 or so Israeli
civilians were killed by Hezbollah rockets. Hezbollah basically held
Israel to a standoff despite the massive destruction of civilian
infrastructure (bridges, hospitals, gas stations, factories,
warehouses, apartment houses), the massacre of civilians, including
those escaping from the south, and the creation of an ecological

A US attack on Iran will lead to the US use of nuclear weapons and will
be disastrous for America. It is the path that Bush, Cheney and
Rumsfeld, with the advice of Kissinger, are hell-bent on pursuing. A
military takeover of government is not likely, and military refusal to
carry out immoral orders is uncertain at best. Congress has a role to
play, perhaps the most important one in its history, and a Republican
Congress is likely to rubberstamp any White House plan on Iran. Voting

A loaves & fishes/Holy Ghost victory for the GOP in November?
The polls all point to a Democratic sweep in November. The news pours
in about pedophile Republicans and Team Bush contempt for their

Scandal is everywhere.
On the other hand, there are rumors of an "October Surprise." An attack

as seen at
Webster Tarpley's revelations about 'Able Danger' the terrorist exercise team on 911 organised by US special forces, mean that we are beginning to identify the true planners, inside the US military, of the 911 attacks. Yet these facts are being deliberately kept from the European public by a Western media who apparently refuse to listen.
So how can those of us who understand that 'False Flag' 911 type attacks have been going on for many years' work to change that?
With the reporting of 21st Century terrorism the British press has let the public down catastrophically. It is as if Allan Francovich's three Timewatch 'Gladio' documentaries of 1992, showing far-right NATO Special Forces gunning down and blowing up hundreds of innocent European civilians, had never been made.
Through systematic bias and a criminally complicit government the BBC, which the public is legally forced to fund, has turned on us and become an accessory to the crime. Despite the wealth of evidence to the contrary, the corporation's misleading and partial coverage is that of the discredited Metropolitan Police and MI5 anonymous 'narrative' line of unproven but 'obvious' Islamic guilt. After London's most devastating attack since the blitz, Londoners are told there will be no enquiry and to: 'trust us, they're suicide bombers'.
The Corporation crossed a lethal professional line when it decided to refer to the four 7/7 suspects as 'suicide bombers'. By rubber stamping Muslim guilt here in the UK, ignoring Peter Power/Visor Consultants' parallel exercise; the Netenyahu/Scotland Yard warning and other hard facts, the corporation has taken on a leading role in an anti-Muslim pogrom. BBC actions now fly in the face of its motto carved on Broadcasting House, 'Nation Shall Speak Peace Unto Nation', as its one-sided presentation of the facts of modern terrorism assumes a NeoCon/Zionist case for a religious war against Islam and for Islamic oil.
The fact that such an extraordinary proportion of the corporation, and other mainstream media's senior staff, are Jewish begins to look less a result of 'fears of another Jewish holocaust' or 'individual merit' and more a Pro-Israeli, anti-Arab bias which has urgently to be corrected.
A professional journalistic blunder is committed with almost every new story of a 'suicide bomber'. Whether a bomb explodes accidentally, by remote control or if a 'bomber' believes he has a shipment of cocaine in his bag he's still likely to be termed a 'suicide bomber' in the news. In April 2004 Bush's Iraq chief Paul Bremer initiated the Iraqi insurgency by closing down the Al Sadr newspaper. The reason? The editor had printed a front page lead story that a 'suicide bomb' in a bus queue was, according to eyewitnesses, actually a missile fired from a helicopter. The newspaper was closed down by the US Army the next day.
The simple lie, referring to a 'suicide bomber' on the say-so of military 'contacts' with little or no evidence, is a propaganda narrative of which Josef Goebbels himself would be proud. It sends out a clear message demonising the target racial or religious group as 'insane', dangerous and impossible to reason with. Condemned with no proof, no court case the lie of the 'suicide-bomber' is not only bad journalism, it seeds genuine terrorism. When a racial or religious group, after false flag attacks, becomes demonised and targeted by racists it begins to fight back and give rise to real terrorism.
False flag or domestic state terrorism is proving a horrific but successful tool both to persuade MP's to wage war, and cow populations into accepting a stripping away of civil liberties. The horror 'serves well' to dissuade almost everyone, including police and investigative journalists from addressing the truth and pursuing the true criminals. The aversion to believing states can kill their own people means that everybody wants to believe 'official lies' but what sort of world does that leave for our children?
Horrific unprovoked massacres at Supermarkets and Railway Stations, no wonder people want to forget them. But we do so at our peril as they explain many oddities with terrorism 'spectaculars' today. 'Gladio' False Flag 'Strategy of Tension' attacks have been going on throughout Europe under the watch of NATO Intelligence's Clandestine Planning Committee (CPC) since the 1960's. It all became public with an Italian Parliamentary Enquiry in 1990 followed by one in Belgium. Make sure your local politicians, soldiers, journalists and police force are aware of Gladio, maybe by giving them a DVD copy of Allan Francovich's BBC Timewatch series.
2nd SS Panzer Korps Oberstgruppenführer Paul Hausser said after the war that NATO was "formed from the international brigades of the SS". Gladio, which was organised by NATO, is alleged by Belgian journalist Rene Haquin to be "a secret army on the model of the SS". Hundreds of innocent people have been killed in false flag terrorist attacks, particularly in Belgium and Italy, where Prime Minister Aldo Moro was kidnapped then assassinated for inviting Communists to join the Italian Government. These attacks were blamed on leftist groups such as Baader Meinhof, Red Brigades etc. which came out of the 1968 student uprisings. So be on your guard, the rogue network looks increasingly to be an 'ODESSA' organisation and there is no reason to think the 7/7 attack on London will be their last.
Be vigilant for warning signs such as drills or exercises, 'power failures' or unusual delays including unusual announcements on tube or rail station platforms or other public places. Carry recording equipment, camera and notebook with you at all times and keep contact details of all those you question. Use your right to take pictures of or film anyone who approaches or follows you and do not be afraid of arrest. If the police are either too embarrassed to admit their failures or complicit in false flag terror it is up to us ordinary people to gather evidence and find ways round them if necessary.
Much interesting information comes out in the hours immediately following a false flag attack. Set your radio cassette, computer, and DVD/VHS to record as much output as possible for later use. It is interesting to note that almost all London's Indymedia (IM) reporters were away from town covering the G8 in Gleneagles on the day of the 7/7 attacks. If you find strong evidence that points to a false flag attack, check the source then contact every newsroom you can immediately. If you found the info. on the Internet, save it immediately as a PDF file for later use as much material evidence was published on the net, noticed by the rogue network and removed after legal threats. Remind all publishers that legal threats and/or polite requests to remove 'inaccurate' articles will probably originate with the rogue network.
Choose your favoured method, writing, photography, audio or video and practice until you know you can turn up at the scene of a 'terrorist attack' able to gather evidence by talking to survivors or eyewitnesses or simply taking pictures. Familiarise yourself with how to upload files to IM and remember, if their editors tamper with or hide your material you can make a fuss about it, republish it as many times as you want on IM and there are always other places you can publish too along with the fact that it's been hidden on IM.
Keep a list of newsdesk phone numbers for your favourite news services so you can become a freelance journalist for the day. You can telephone TV news or the papers before publishing your pictures or copy free on the net but don't let them faff you about. If they do, get their name and politely ask to speak to the editor. Remember, if you come across a scoop or take a good photograph you may be able to sell an exclusive for a five-figure sum!
Centuries ago the Egyptian state mislead its people by censoring anything which showed its leaders in a bad light. Today, the battle for public opinion is much more subtle and being fought by a secret 'rogue network' of which researchers, producers and media managers are largely unaware. With tentacles in the secret state, police, the City of London, politics, press etc. the network keeps several steps ahead of the game. It uses the vacuum of information immediately following 'spectacular' false flag terror events to disseminate lies, which soon become myths. The rogue network then acts through its media owners and agents to discredit anyone who comes close to gaining enough exposure to challenge that myth and there is a reluctance amongst production staff to backtrack, a reluctance to admit professional mistakes. The rogue network also like to infiltrate our movement so that they can have pieces 'on both sides of the chessboard'.
0500 909 693, 0207 224 2000, learn these phone in numbers and use them. Phone-ins are the least used and most obvious way by which anyone can simply pick up a phone and present thousands of people with evidence (or just opinion) that 911 was an inside job, or point out misconceptions with any attack. Challenge the assumption that 'suicide bombers' were behind the 7/7 attacks, and remember, millions of people have simply not been posed basic questions like 'where was the US Air force for 1 hr 45 minutes on 911?'
Having worked on these shows I can tell you that some days there is a distinct lack of people calling in and that those producing the programme are only too happy to have someone make a controversial point to get the show going. Some phone-ins are on specific topics and others are an 'anything goes' so try to choose your phone-in sensibly. Particularly if you can move a stale debate on terrorism on by pointing out the lack of evidence that the four so-called 'London bombers' actually did it. A list of eight or ten 'killer questions' to hand might be helpful to have handy while you're on the air, see if you can get them all the questions in!
Mainstream media is moving closer every day to the monolithic multinational model. Safeguards such as guarantees of regional ITV news and locally produced programmes have gone out of the window to benefit shareholders. These are some of the main reasons the media has failed us over 911 and terrorism as a whole.
1. Long time lag as evidence emerges - journalists don't know the facts
2. Journalists' fear - job insecurity is exacerbated by low wages
3. 'Burden of proof' is skewed in favour of government
4. Downing St./NeoCon/Zionist/MI6 (I/OPS) penetration of editorial process - journalists' copy scanned & censored before publication
5. High cost of investigative journalism - pressure of time means journalists don't leave the office
6. Ideological influence of media's financial backers, banks and shareholders
7. Young and/or credulous candidates employed as journalists because they're cheap and don't ask too many questions
8. Reluctance to backtrack - "sorry everyone we got it wrong!"
Behind the scenes journalists discuss at length the reliability of sources and contacts. Whispering campaigns abound which is why it's essential to speak to journalists personally, and build up a list of contacts (see 911 truth PR - below).
Brilliant -Tarpley identifies US Special Forces exercise Able Danger/Able Warrior as at the heart of 911 - drills and exercises that 'turn real' are clearly the preferred MO of Gladio, 911 and 7/7 - see and read - nuff said
If you haven't seen all Daniel Hopsicker's various 911 and related DVD's then do please have a look. His professional experience has taught him to travel to the scene of the myth creation to do primary research which blows that myth apart. For example in Venice, Florida where the 911 'hijackers' supposedly 'learned to fly' Daniel interviews witnesses who pour scorn on the official version of events.
Many of these local witnesses want to explode the myth. The lies they see in the mainstream press coverage can make them puzzled and angry. They often feel a necessity to 'unburden themselves'. You may remember that people who were in key positions as witnesses to 911 'hijacker training' in Venice found that crucial evidence was either 'lost' by the FBI or never gathered in the first place. The same happened in London with at least one witness to the killing of Jean Charles De Menezes at Stockwell contacting the anti-terror 'hotline' only to be told later that his contact details and statement had been 'lost'. This leaves people feeling let down and undervalued by a criminalised or otherwise inadequate law enforcement system and often only too happy to talk on camera.
Through a lot of original hard work and determination Daniel has built up the credibility to get well known public figures to front his productions and shown beyond a shadow of a doubt how much more fruitful the 'inside job' line of enquiry is than the barmy conspiracy theories!
Back in 2004 I came across Simon Aaronowiz's www.911truthradio.com internet radio site. He put together a 14 hour continuous audio loop of mostly telephone interviews with key 'witnesses for the prosecution' for 911 being an inside job, interspersed with music. At the Dialect Radio Co-op in Bristol we were relaying that audio stream off the London Indymedia server at Rackspace when it was famously seized, without explanation, by the FBI.
To build 911 truth radio Simon bought an eight channel audio mixer with clean feed for £150 and a Telebalance unit for about the same price. These are available from Canford Audio, Broadcast Warehouse and other radio equipment stockists. He also used two computers, one to stream the audio using Shoutcast software and the other to play in music and pre-recorded interviews. The end result was streamed at 8-16k bitrate so that it could be heard uninterrupted on a dialup account. It is also possible to have an extra 32-64k bitstream to give broadband listeners an FM rather than AM sound quality. On top of this £350 a relay server costs about £20 a month or you may be able to use Indymedia which is free. Most importantly this unique 14 hour loop of evidence was produced with minimum time and manpower.
Journalists are very busy people but they appreciate being forewarned of significant events and informed of significant stuff they don't know in the immediate aftermath. As a movement we need to absolutely sharpen up and focus attention on our eight killer questions of 911. These are the points and questions which will persuade people to take our cause seriously rather than ridicule it. We hold our movement up to ridicule if we don't insist on discussing 911 on solid ground.
We need a London based team to build on contacts within the mainstream press and independent production companies to get articles placed and documentaries commissioned. This team should have an identifiable logo for all press releases and well trained spokespeople who have the discipline to stick to hard facts and the confidence to think on their feet during a live interview.
There are times when news programmes are much more likely to cover issues we are concerned about. And we must identify and use those windows by following the news and proactively contacting newsdesks with our point of view. "Who is working on the X story, we may have something for them"
Opposing what is probably the best financed and technologically advanced rogue network in history is an intimidating task. Sometimes it can be difficult to see how the ultimate triumph of truth, righteousness and justice will ever materialise.
There are powerful psychological forces at work when challenging an earth-shattering lie like the 911 myth. Adolf Hitler knew this well and used it to his advantage cowing much of the German population and that of occupied nations with his myth of the German 'master race' the scapegoating of the Jews, Gypsies etc. and the ultimate threat of the concentration camp.
The rogue network appears to have, at its core, a Nazi-like 'death cult', possibly linked to the Skull and Bones club at Yale University, that accrues power from spilling innocent human blood and from the knowledge that the more evil it becomes the less anyone will dare to take it on. Put bluntly, the fact that press and public 'don't want to go there' is an essential psychological element in the rogue network's depraved plans.
Spiritual beliefs and an understanding that we are not fighting alone are essential if one is not to give up in the face of apparently overwhelming odds. But the forces of darkness know this and are certain to be preparing their own man-made phoney spiritual solutions. Beware of spiritual paths promising 'hidden knowledge'. Freemasonry, Scientology or Spain's 'Nuevo Acropolis' are examples. Truth is pure and simple stuff, it neither thrives nor is it disseminated in a secretive way. As Carl Jung said: "The maintenance of secrets acts like a psychic poison that alienates the possessor from the community."
The most powerful weapon we have may simply be our own love of righteousness expressed through prayer, meditation and spiritual fellowship.
As well as dismantling the 911 myth with hard evidence it we have a responsibility to point the way, as a sort of 'deep-ecology' 911 truth policy, towards a world where cataclysmic fraud like 911 can never happen again. George Monbiot's The Age of Consent begins to address international politics.
Nationalisation of money, land, water, energy and even the railways would all massively thwart the rogue network's private plan to own our world. We have to show we're clear about what exactly would make the world a better place, however 'impossible' people tell us those reforms are. Humour and ridicule of idiotic puffed-up 'leaders' plays a crucial part in this.
We cannot entirely blame the mainstream press for not dealing with our issues for one central reason: Few people have a good enough grasp of the facts of 911 and 7/7, even fewer are able to 'go public' and articulate those facts with any confidence, therefore nobody but the 911 truth movement can make a case for producing a 911 sceptic documentary. i.e. They don't know what we know!
We assume too easily that the facts which brought us to a 911 sceptic point of view are known about, so when making our case we must bear two things in mind.
1) To aim as much of our material as possible at an audience that believes the official version of events covering all the questions they are likely to have about our evidence and never assuming any audience knowledge other than the official version.
2) We must allow as our spokespeople only those who stick to the territory which we are sure of such as eyewitness accounts of explosions or hijackers inability to fly, not get side-tracked with techno-babble we can't prove such as 'holograms' or 'pods'. This stuff should be for internal discussion, a kind of peer review, only. Anyone who breaks ranks with easily discredited speculative stuff is 'pissing in the pot'.

By Neil Mackay = Sunday Herald - 02 July 2006
MASONIC halls throughout Scotland are under covert surveillance by anti-terror
police after the outlawed loyalist paramilitary group, the Ulster Defence
Association (UDA) successfully infiltrated the controversial secret society.
David Begg, the grand secretary of the Grand Lodge of Scotland, told the
Sunday Herald that Freemasons have been advised by police that lodges throughout
the country particularly in the west of Scotland are under
surveillance by officers targeting the UDA. One Fife lodge has been penetrated
by loyalist terrorists who used the premises for fund-raising and operational
planning. For more than 18 months, UDA member Steven Moffat used the St Kenneth
Lodge in Kennoway as a cover for loyalist paramilitary activity.
The UDA is one of Ulsters most brutal paramilitary organisations. Using
the cover-name the Ulster Freedom Fighters (UFF) it waged a campaign of sectarian
assassination against Northern Irelands Catholics. One of its most
notorious brigadiers, Johnny Mad Dog Adair, fled
to Ayrshire after his expulsion from Belfast following an internecine loyalist
Moffat is serving five years in jail after being imprisoned by the High Court
in Edinburgh earlier this month under the Terrorism Act 2000 for membership
of a proscribed organisation and possession of firearms.
He was found with a Browning 9mm automatic pistol and ammunition at his home.
Police also discovered flags, balaclavas and other paramilitary regalia,
including documents detailing the UDAs initiation ceremonies.
Police and prosecutors believed the items were for the preparation
or instigation of an act of terrorism. Moffat joined the UDA in Belfast
at least three years ago.
The Masons Fife and Kinross provincial grand master, David Wishart,
said Moffat had used the Masonic Lodge in Kennoway for UDA meetings for at
least 18 months. A member of the lodge who was also in the Orange Order had
arranged for Moffat and his loyalist associates to hold meetings in the Kennoway
lodge. Wishart insisted that no other members knew the true nature of
Once Moffats actions were discovered, the Mason and Orange Order member
who assisted him resigned after being threatened with expulsion from the
I was horrified to find out that this had been going on, said
Moffat, who was not a Freemason but often drank in the St Kenneth Lodges
bar, used the Kennoway Masonic Hall for two types of meetings. Firstly, regular
private strategy meetings with Moffat and 10 other men occurred
over 18 months. The UDA members discussed their plans in a closed room while
lodge members drank at the Masons bar in the same building.
The second type of meeting was fund-raising events for loyalist causes in
Northern Ireland. Up to 70 people attended three fundraisers held at the
Masonic Hall over an 18-month period.
Wishart said: The UDA infiltrated and used us for their illegal purposes.
These people are very clever. We were trusting; they gained our confidence
and then we were manipulated.
Kennoway Masonic Hall was closed for eight weeks for an internal Masonic
inquiry following police raids in the area in connection with Moffats
At the time of his arrest, Moffat was planning to hold an initiation ceremony
for Scottish UDA recruits at the Masonic hall. Wishart has since altered
hall letting procedures and leasing now has to be cleared by a committee
and a lodge member must vouch for those letting the premises.
The Orange Order has been banned from using the Kennoway lodges premises.
Previously, Orangemen regularly hired out the hall.
Due to rogue members of the lodge linked to the Orange Order and the
UDA we took the decision to no longer allow them the use of the premises,
Senior police officers told Wishart that they were mounting similar
surveillance operations in the west of Scotland against Masonic lodges
which might have been infiltrated by loyalist terrorists.
I cant say if there is or isnt a risk elsewhere,
said Wishart, pointing out that members of some of the 49 Fife lodges under
his command were also in the Orange Order. One other lodge in Fife also allows
the Orange Order to rent its premises for functions.
David Begg, the grand master of the Grand Lodge of Scotland, said if any
lodges were involved in supporting the UDA they would be closed. He has warned
Scotlands 32 provincial masters to be extra vigilant but cannot compel
lodges to introduce committee-led hall letting procedures similar to those
adopted by Kennoway.
We cant tell lodges what to do. It is up to the trustees of each
lodge but we will be producing general guidance in the near future,
01Jul06 - Alfred Mendes - Bilderberg site exclusive
Eugenics (Greek for 'good birth') is the study of methods to improve the
human race by controlled selective breeding - bolstered by its concomitant
term 'population control'.
The colonisation of the so-called 'under-developed', poorer countries of
this world by the more 'developed' capitalist-orientated countries (primarily
European), benefitted the latter greatly - at the expense of the former.
Slavery was one of the more tragic outcomes - another being that the colonisers,
now imbued with racist perceptions, subsequently set up organisations reflecting
this. And the fact that the membership lists of these organisations flaunt
the names of very influential politicians/statesmen, business tycoons and
bankers, surely calls for a closer look at the matter. And because of America's
currently leading role in this matter, it is necessary to recall that she
gained 'independence' as the United States of America after much infighting
between the colonisers (primarily British) who had invaded that country of
Indian Tribes - which led to genocidal attacks on those 'Red Indians'. A
story not unlike Britain's colonisation of Australia, wirh its indigenous Aborigines.
As a backdrop to this, in 1798, an English clergyman-cum-economist, Thomas
Robert Malthus published a theory with eugenic (a term not then used) overtones,
arguing that an un-planned population grew faster than food production -
adding that famine and poverty were God's way of coping with man's laziness.
This was a theory much-welcomed by the colonisers and the organisations mentioned
This article will consider three such organisations: the Order of the Skull
& Bones; the Eugenic Societies; and Population Control organisations,
in a more-or-less chronological order, thereby leading to a more rational
grasp of the subject matter.
Of the three, the Skull & Bones (of Yale University) was the earliest
formed. 'The Order', as it is referred to by its members, bears the aura
of secrecy and freemasonry, and is a bastion of White Anglo Saxon Protestant
(WASP) culture, wealth and influence. A partial list of its more prominent members reflects said influence: The Russell Family; Alphonso Taft; William
Howard Taft (his son); Henry Lewis Stimson; Averell Harriman; Robert A Lovett
(partner of merged Brown Brothers Harriman in1926); Harold Stanley (of Morgan
Stanley); Robert A. Taft; Prescott Bush Snr.; George Herbert Walker Bush;
G.W. Bush (current President); McGeorge Bundy (National Security Advisor to JFK); the Heinz family - et al. In other words, the 'corporate establishment',
as it is more popularly known.
The following very brief story of its birth is intriguing, to put it mildly:
In 1823, using the old pirates' 'Skull & Crossbones' as its logo, Samuel
Russell founded an opium-smuggling company, Russell & Co. - and by 1829,
he had bought out the Perkins & Co., which had controlled the smuggling
of Turkish opium into China since 1789. In 1833, Samuel's second cousin,
William Huntington Russell and Alphonso Taft (who had served as Secretary
of War under President Rutherford B. Hayes) founded the Order of Skull &
In 1856, said William Huntington Russell (who had been valedictorian of his
class at Yale in 1833) incorporated Skull & Bones as the 'Russell Trust
Association'. It must be recalled here that the opium trading noted above
was still being run by the British East India Company (BEIC) - Britain then
being the great empire-builder - and that without Britain's collaboration
Russell & Co. would have collapsed. Simply put - the birth of Skull &
Bones (whose members are more commonly known as the 'Bonesmen') - was paid
for by opium drug-smuggling! While on the subject of Russell & Co., it
is intriguing to note that Warren Delano Jnr. (grandfather of that popular
'democrat', FDR), though not a 'Bonesman' - while acting as US Vice-Consul
in Canton, acted as Chief of Operations for Russell during the Opium War
of 1839 - '42, which resulted in the legalisation of opium in China, and
the acquisition of Hong Kong by the British.
In the 1860's, Francis Galton (a cousin of Charles Darwin) took this Malthusian
theory (see above) a step further: in his own words he defined 'Eugenics'
( a word he coined) as "the science of improvement of the human race germ
plasm through better breeding" - adding that the poor were biologically inferior
- and he further advocated state intervention to solve the problem. In 1904,
he founded a research chair in eugenics at University College of London
In 1905, Dr. Alfred Ploetz and Dr. Ernst Rudin founded the Society of
Race-Hygiene in Germany. (about which, more later).
In 1907, the Eugenic Education Society (which later became the Eugenic Society)
was founded in England.
In 1910, the Eugenics Record Office (ERO) was founded in America. In their
own words, the ERO felt that "ultimate economic betterment should be sought
by breeding better people, not fewer of the existing sort."
In 1912, the First International Eugenics Congress was held at London University.
It demonstrated the growing strength of the movement especially in England,
Germany and the United States. The opening speech at this congress was given
by Arthur James Balfour, who had been British Prime Minister from 1902 -
5; and, as Foreign Secretary under Lloyd George from 1916 - '19, made a deal
with the Zionists whereby Britain would support the setting up of a 'home'
for the Jews, in return for the Zionists using their considerable political
clout to persuade America to enter the war against Germany. (Britain was
by then in dire economic straits). This secular Zionist group of Ashkenazi Jews were surely not entitled to a 'homeland' in Palestine, as their country
of origin had been the Khazar Empire (which had adopted Judaism) of southern
In 1916, Margaret Sanger opened the first birth control clinic in the United
States. It was renamed the Planned Parenthood Federation of America in 1942.
She wrote: " the unbalance between the birth rate of the 'unfit' and the
'fit' is admittedly the greatest present menace to civilisation ... The most urgent problem today is how to limit and discourage the over-fertility of
the mentally and physically defective."
In 1922, the American Eugenics Society was founded. One of its co-founders,
Henry Laughlin (who had been Superintendent of the Eugenics Record Office
from l910 to 1921) later became President of the Pioneer Fund, a white
supremacist organisation. Another co-founder, Dr. Henry Fairfield Osborn,
in 1923, during a national debate on restricting immigration, spoke
enthusiastically about the results of intelligence testing carried out by
the Army: "I believe those tests were worth what the war (World War I) cost,
even in human life...We have learned once and for all that the Negro is not
like us." He also became president of the Pioneer Fund from 1947 to 1956.
Well documented is the fact that in between WW1 and WW2, Prescott Bush Snr.
- as an executive of W.A.Harriman & Co. (later becoming Brown Bros. Harriman)
- had, through a number of mergers with German companies, helped finance
Hitler's Nazi regime. Furthermore, in 1926, as a board member of bankers
Dillon Read, Major (as he then was) William Draper co-operated with W.A.
Harriman & Co. (Prescott S. Bush Snr. was Vice-President then) in the
handling of the corporate banking for Fritz Thyssen's German Steel Trust.
Thyssen had helped to fund the Nazi Party. By 1931, sterilisation laws had
been enacted in 27 states in the United States, and by 1935 enacted in Norway,
Sweden, Denmark, Switzerland and Germany. As for Germany: as noted above,
Ploetz and Rudin had set out an effective eugenics program which resulted
in the tragic killing of millions of Jews, communists et al. by the Nazi
Regime of Hitler. In fact, Rudin had been the chief architect of Law for
the Prevention of Hereditary Disease in Posterity passed July 1933 four months after Hitler came to power. An inriguing aside: as noted in the Rockefeller
Foundation Annual Reports 1928 1939, Rockefeller gave money for the "Kaiser
Wilhelm Institute" and thus subsidized Rudin. From 1932 - 1972, the US Public
Health Service studied the natural history of syphilis in hopes of justifying
treatment programs for blacks. It was called the "Tuskegee Study of Untreated Syphilis in the Negro Male", and involved 600 black men--399 with syphilis
and 201 who did not have the disease. Researchers told the men they were
being treated for "bad blood". In fact, the men were never given adequate
treatment for their disease. Even when penicillin became the drug of choice
for syphilis in 1947, researchers did not offer it to the subjects. In 1972,
as a result of a New York Times article, an Ad Hoc Advisory panel reviewed
the study and found that the Tuskegee Study was "ethically unjustified".
In August 1932 - and financed by the eugenicist, Major William Draper (see
above) - the third "International Conference on Eugenics" was held in New
York's American Museum of Natural History under the supervision of the
International Federation of Eugenics Societies. The proceedings were dedicated
to Averell Harriman's mother, who had financed the foundation of the Eugenics Record Office back in 1910 (see above). Dr. Ernst Rudin (see above) travelled
to attend the Congress via the Hamburg-Amerika line (owned by W.A.Harriman
& Co) - and was unanimously elected president of the International Federation
of Eugenics Societies!
A few years after WW 2, Professor Dr. Otmar Freiherr von Verschuer, who,
in 1937,had been Director of the Third Reich Institute for Heredity, Biology
and Racial Purity (and Josef Mengele's mentor) founded the Institute of Human
Genetics in Munster, and also became a foreign member of the American Eugenics
The setting up of the state of Israel by the Zionists in 1948 was an irrational
act (as implied above), the main beneficiary being America, which would now
have a well-armed, suborned ally in an Arab region rich in oil. The resulting
deaths of the many Arabs at the hands of the Israelis could have been stopped
by America many years ago. That it was not stopped can only mean that it
was in keeping with the policy of the eugenicist-dominated US Administration
- after all, Arabs are merely 'ragheads'.
In 1950 and '51`, John Foster Dulles, then chairman of the Rockefeller Foundation
(later to be appointed Secretary of State by Eisenhower), led John D. Rockefeller
III on a series of world tours, "focussing on the need to stop the expansion
of the non-white populations". In 1952, Frederick Osborn (1889-1981) nephew
of Henry Fairfield Osborn Sr. (see above), an officer of the American Eugenics
Society/SSSB for more than 30 years, helped John D. Rockefeller III establish
the Population Council in 1952, served as the council's first administrator
and was on its board of trustees for many years.
In 1958, Eisenhower appointed Draper (see above) as head of a committee to
study the proper course for military aid to other countries. Draper changed
the focus of the committee and recommended that the US goverment react to
the threat of the population explosion by formulating plans to depopulate
the poorer countries, as the growth of the world's non-white population should be regarded as dangerous to the national security of the United States!
Eisenhower had the sense to reject this.
In the1960's Draper founded the Population Crisis Committee and the Draper
fund, and joined with the Rockerfeller and Du Pont families to promote eugenics
as population control...
While serving in Congress - and with Draper as his 'population expert' -
George H.W. Bush chaired the Republican Task Force on Earth Resources and
Population and invited Professors William Shockley and Arthur Jensen to explain
to the committee how allegedly runaway birth-rates for African-Americans
were down-breeding the American population. On August 5 1969, Bush summed
up the testimony his black-inferiority advocates had given to the Task Force
With the term 'eugenics' now, in the Post-War period, tainted with an aura
of genocide and racism, Major General Frederick Osborn, founder member of
both the American Eugenics Society and the Pioneer Fund, stated the public
relations problem bluntly: "Eugenic goals are most likely to be attained
under a name other than eugenics."...In other words, the goals must be
camouflaged - it would now be known as crypto-eugenics. In 1960, the British
Eugenics Society agreed with this, stating "The Society's activities in
crypto-eugenics should be pursued vigorously..." - and adopted the proposal.
In 1973, this resulted in the American Eugenics Society becoming the more academic-sounding 'Society for the Study of Social Biology'. Crypto-eugenics
would now be the order-of-the-day.
On June 9th 1969, Dr.D.M. MacArthur, Deputy Director of Research & Technology
for the Pentagon, requested a sum of $10 million from the Congressional House
Subcommittee on Appropriations to develop a new contagious micro-organsm
capable of destroying the human immune system - in order to counteract any
possible future virus capable of affecting said human immunity. It would
therefore be necessary, first, to create such a virus! This resulted in a
'virus' discovered some ten years later in America which became known as
'acquired immune deficiency syndrome' (AIDS). It should be stressed that
this virus first appeared in America, and, as noted by Neville Hodgkinson
on the website businessonline.com in May 2006: increasingly complex procedures
were taken to diagnose this virus in a reliable manner - "but the basic problem
- not being able to validate any of these procedures against pure virus taken
from patients - still remains". Furthermore, he reveals in comprehensive
detail, that both the HIV tests and statistics concerning AIDS have been
manipulated in a duplicitous manner. It would seem that the main beneficiaries
have been the pharmaceutical firms!
In April 1974, Kissinger drew up a secret plan for population control called
the 'National Security Plan of Action 200' (NSSM 200), which was endorsed
by the National Security Decision Memorandum 314, and finally declassified
in 1900. In brief, it claimed that population growth in the less-developed
countries was "..creating political or even national security problems for
the US", and it would seek help from the UN Fund for Population Activities
(UNFPA founded in 1969) - but stressing that it would be under US leadership.
NB: this was at a time when America was being wracked by the Watergate scandal,
as a result of which its president, Richard Nixon, had to resign. At the
very least, it would seem that - in the eyes of the Administration - the
policy of 'population control' stood high in its list of priorities. In August
1974, at a meeting in Bucharest, the UN passed a resolution adopting The
World Population of Action as proposed by the US delegation. It would seem
that US leadership was indeed essential! The UNFPA was to hold similar meetings
at 10-year intervals thereafter.
On October 2nd 1979, Robert McNamara (President of the World Bank) addressed
a group of international bankers thus: "We can begin with the most critical
problem of all, population growth"..concluding that "..either the current
birth rates must come down more quickly, or the death rates must go up...There
are, of course, many ways in which the death rates can go up. In a thermonuclear
age, we can accomplish it very quickly and decisively"(as indeed they had
done in Hiroshima and Nagasaki in1945). Not surprising statements, coming,
as they do, from a man who was Secretary of Defense during the genocidal
Vietnam War - but surprising in view of the crypto-eugenic stand taken by
the American Eugenics Society noted above, a stand which McNamara, a
self-evidently keen eugenicist, would have certainly been aware of. It can
only be assumed that he did not agree with the society's stand, and was arrogant
enough to ignore it.
In 1980, William Draper III (General Draper's son) served as co-chairman
for financing G.H.W. Bush's campaign for the presidency that year. Reagan
won and appointed Bush as his Vice President.
In 1986 - as a result of Vice President George H.W.Bush's advice to Reagan
- William Draper III was appointed Administrator and CEO of the UN Development
Program (UNDP), which was founded in 1965 by merging two existing U.N.
organizations: the Expanded Program of Technical Assistance (EPTA), and the
U.N. Special Fund. Since 1971, it has been responsible for coordinating all
development assistance supplied by the United Nations system. UNDP was a
key player in the global aid network - and the UNFPA (see above).
The foregoing is not a comprehensive list by any means - but is surely enough
evidence that eugenics, population control (call it what you will) has played,
and continues to play a crucial role in the policy-making of the so-called
'developed' countries - America in particular.
A recent event of pertinence follows: an earthquake of magnitude 9.0 on the
Richter scale struck the Indian Ocean region on December 26th 2004, resulting
in a Tsumani which killed approximately a quarter-of-a-million people. It
was subsequently revealed that the Americans - with their European partners/acolytes - were aware of this earthquake almost immediately, as
they controlled a number of seismic stations in the region (to say nothing
of their earth-scouring satellites), the most important being the American
military base on Diego Garcia. However, thay had not notified those countries threatened by the Tsunami. The only conclusion to be drawn from this is that
this was a deliberate act on the part of the Euro-Americans, and, keeping
in mind the chronological events listed above, it can justifiably be assumed
that, in this instance, the eugenists and their cohort 'Bonesmen' had scored
Moreover, the close relationship noted above between Corporate America (with
its 'Skull and Bones'-ridden Administration) and Nazi/fascist Germans makes
a mockery of the former's claim to democracy. Using eugenicists' terminology,
they could more accurately be described as 'crypto-democrats' (fascists).
The definition of 'Fascism' in a dictionary is "a philosophy or system of government that advocates or exercises a dictatorship of the extreme right,
typically through the merging of state and business leadership, together
with the ideology of belligerent nationality'. This, in turn, reveals that
capitalism lies at the core of fascism. But, as noted above, this is a fact
which must be hidden by these global capitalists.
It is therefore imperative that this subject of eugenics/population control
is subjected to far greater public scrutiny than it has received from 'our
media' - which, after all, is in hock to its corporate owners: it says what
it is paid to say!

Although the discovery of the actual place and venue of Bilderbergs annual meeting happened only two weeks ago some Canadian papers have already spoken about this carefully hidden event. 'Bilderberg Fever' is sweeping Ottawa and the talking point amongst friends sometimes in hushed, worried, tones.
This is already a small victory because for many years there is absolutely no publication before the meeting. The last time where this occurred was in Sweden, for the meeting arranged in Stenungsund in the year 2001. Swedish are fierce and proud peoples, they dont like a secret, some say occult, power to meet on their soil without their knowledge. Without their democratic assent.
They hardly reacted and obliged their press to speak and the main Swedish Bilderberg representative Mr. Wallenberg was forced to give an interview before the conference. Jim Tucker, veteran of the Bilderberg hunt was submerged with interviews that year. Because Swedish people are respecting themselves, they were respected by their Bilderberg Masters for a week. Let's hope the Swedish people remember what they heard.
This is normal when living in a democracy. You will tell me: well, are Bilderbergers or this year's ex-SAS man Alan Bell's security firm in any way democrats? Your question is mine and I do believe that your answer will be mine as well. Elite power is in no way democratic.
Bilderberg's event has more consequences than a relaxed annual soiree of the intellgencia. Above the plutocratic apparatus of 'appointment of friends to power', every year they see their broad aims achieved. Their goal is continuous moves towards their vision of global government by banks and giant corporations and is not simply about the pleasure of meeting 'old friends'.
Through NATO and the Atlantic Ocean, between the worlds two richest peoples, a consensus towards a world with the same economic and political values is taking place with very little opposition. Those with power who do oppose those values are invited to Bilderberg to see the error of their ways as was former UK Labour party leader John Smith in 1991.
Canada has the chance to have a national press that Mr Harper doesn't like. He is even refusing interviews from it, preferring the regional press. Mr Harper was a guest of Bilderberg 2003 in Versailles, France when he was just a Canadian party leader.
As was saying Mr Davignon to an English paper, nobody is guilty when the choice of the Bilderberg secretariat is a good choice. Except when the choice is in fact coming directly from the steering committee
As far as I have read personally from French Canadian peoples internet forums and some English ones, I believe that the honor to show some resistance today in Ottawa will originate from joint work between the two communities and I greet in advance the Canadian courage to protest as so righteous and respectable as the Swedish one in the past.
If Bilderberg continue to stonewall the press this inevitably will build up speculation, suspicion, resentment and accusations of totalitarianism. Some good questions have to be asked by the press with the adequate answers from key Bilderberg figures such as David Rockefeller and Henry Kissinger. This never occurred in 53 years of meeting. Will this occur this year?
VIPs set to arrive for Bilderberg meeting
Andrew Seymour and Andrew Mayeda, with a file from James Bagnall, The Ottawa Citizen
Published: Thursday, June 08, 2006
An elite private security firm has been hired to guard a top-secret meeting of some of the world's most powerful business and political leaders at a Kanata hotel starting today.
Members of the Bilderberg Group will descend on the upscale Brookstreet Hotel for the three-day meeting, several police sources confirmed yesterday.
At least four off-duty Ottawa police officers will be part of the security for the event.
The highly secretive session, expected to touch on global issues such as the direction of oil markets and potential military action against Iran, will run through Sunday.
Senior Ottawa police officers met yesterday afternoon to discuss preparations for the event, which police are concerned may draw the attention of anti-globalization protesters as well as present a potential security risk as a collection of the world's richest and most influential people gather under one roof.
When asked about police plans for the event, a police spokeswoman referred the Citizen to Alan Bell of Globe Risk Holdings.
Reached by phone, Mr. Bell -- who is listed as president of Globe Risk Holdings in Toronto and a former SAS paratrooper commando -- said he hadn't heard of the Bilderberg Group and denied that his firm has been hired to guard this week's conference.
"Never heard of that conference. What is it? What do they do?" said Mr. Bell before politely cutting the conservation short.
But according to the company's website, Globe Risk Holdings specializes in "strategic planning and counter-measures," recruits its consultants primarily from elite military counter-terrorist and special forces units, and has "undertaken consultancy and project work worldwide in areas of high risk" including Africa, Central and South America and Asia.
"The consultants at Globe Risk Holdings have proven backgrounds in military, special forces, law enforcement and government organizations with real life expertise in the areas of international security, mining, energy exploration security, counter-terrorism, kidnapping, specialized training, close protection, sabotage prevention, and military/law enforcement," reads the company website. "Knowledgeable and discreet, our consultants work together as a team to offer the quality of service necessary to meet all our clients' needs."
It's not known if any current heads of state are expected to attend the meeting.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper has been linked to the group after attending a Bilderberg conference in Versailles, France in 2003. A spokeswoman for the prime minister said yesterday he would not be attending the conference and that officials at the Prime Minister's Office weren't aware of the event.
The Bilderberg Group is named after the Dutch hotel where it held its first meeting in 1954. Since then, the group has met annually in various locations throughout North America and Europe, including Toronto in 1996 and the Chateau Montebello in Quebec in 1983.
The list of attendees at last year's conference in Germany is believed to have included the queens of Spain and the Netherlands, former U.S. secretary of defence Henry Kissinger, World Bank president Paul Wolfowitz, as well as top executives and directors at such multinational corporations as BP PLC, Siemens AG, Deutsche Bank Group and DaimlerChrysler AG.
Canadian attendees are believed to have included Robert Pritchard, chief executive of TorStar Corp., and Heather Reisman, chief executive of Indigo Books and Music Inc.
The group was originally conceived as a forum for bridging the political and economic divide between Europe and the United States during the Cold War. But in recent years the group has taken on a mystique, perhaps due to the secretive nature of the meetings.
The group has no website, and attendees promise not to disclose the subject of the talks. Even newspaper and magazine editors and media executives who attend the event are sworn to secrecy.
Bilderberg insiders say the approach enables participants to discuss political and economic issues without worrying how their opinions will be spun by the media. But it has also made the group a prime target for critics and conspiracy theorists who say its members come to important decisions about global public policy behind closed doors.
Whatever the case, Brookstreet staff are staying tight lipped about the conference. The hotel's general manager, Patrice Basille, didn't immediately return a call yesterday. He has previously said he was unaware of the event.
A Citizen reporter who called to make dinner reservations was told the hotel will be closed between June 8 and 11 to accommodate a private function.
A kindly Scottish soul has sent me in an Excel spreadsheet purporting to contain names of all the officers of Scottish Freemasonry. This makes a useful addition to my collection of masonic reference documents which began last year with the first ever internet publication of cogent pages of the masonic yearbook.
How handy it would be when confronted with allegations of masonic collusion or corruption to have a full list of members available so anyone could dismiss or confirm those rumours.
A UK parliamentary committee under the chairmanship of Chris Mullin MP back in the 1990's decided that it was in the public interest for public servants, particularly judges, police and those involved in the administration of justice, to declare their membership, or otherwise, of the freemasons. This, they felt, would restore public confidence in the criminal justice system. Unfortunately, though masons are asked to mention their membership in their declaration of interest the requirement for police to declare was dropped - perversely this was because it would 'damage public confidence'.
Many believe the organisation to be a religious cult which is potentially damaging to our democratic freedoms.
It would be extremely useful if I could also publish the provincial (city and county) lists of all freemasons, not just the officers of each province, were to be published. Electronic versions, either gif's or pdf's etc. welcome!
John Micklethwait has attended every Bilderberg meeting for at least the last ten years. But apart from an accident in the Boxing day 1987 edition when the then editor was away on holiday this 'great magazine for the investor' has never mentioned the most powerful political and economic gathering in the world
Mar 23rd 2006
THE Economist Group's board of directors has chosen John Micklethwait as the 16th editor of The Economist, succeeding Bill Emmott on April 1st.
John Micklethwait was until now the editor of the United States section of the paper; his previous jobs include stints as American business editor, business section editor, Los Angeles correspondent and finance correspondent. He is the co-author, with Adrian Wooldridge, of four books, the latest of which is "The Right Nation: Conservative Power in America". He joined The Economist in 1987, having previously worked at Chase Manhattan bank. He is 43 years old.
Bill Emmott has been editor since March 1993. He announced on February 20th that he planned to step down.
The Economist - 26th December 1987
BILDERBERG takes its name from a Dutch hotel where, in the early 1950s, the first meeting took place under the aegis of Prince Bernhard. The occasion has outgrown the hotel, but the Dutch link remains. Among several European royals who attend as occasional guests, Queen Beatrix and her husband come regularly. A Dutch professor who has brokered coalition governments into existence on her behalf is one of the secretary-generals (the other, American, one lives in San Francisco), and Bilderberg's tiny secretariat sits in The Hague. The meetings now take place by informal rotation in countries of the Atlantic community.
Some 100 or more attend, by invitation of a steering committee. The meetings happen once a year, in the spring. They last 2.5 days (Thursday night until Sunday lunch) and are held in varying but always comfortable surroundings - in 1987 Lake Como, before that Gleneagles. Apart from a half-day on the golf links or sleeping off the previous night's dinner, morning and afternoon sessions fill up the time.
A mixture of able and distinguished folk attend - a sprinkling of serving prime and cabinet ministers, central-bank governors, defence and other experts. They talk, often to galvanising and fascinating effect, about the main issues of the day - East-West relations, arms control, deficits, debt, the Falklands, sanctions, whatever. Their thoughts may not be repeated outside the meetings and never are. This frustrates outsiders but helps 100 great and good people be frank with each other, as does the fact that Bilderberg members are limited to people of NATO and West European countries who know how to be kind or rude to each other without causing such misunderstandings as would occur if Indians, Fijians, Africans, Chinese or Japanese were also present.
Elite and discreet, Bilderberg has inevitably been talked of in hushed tones by conspiracy theorists over the years. It needn't be. The lists of attenders are published, as are the agendas, and before each meeting the chairman (currently Lord Roll) holds a press conference at which few journalists bother to turn up.
Where does the money come from? Not complicated. The steering-group members raise from business the small sums necessary to keep the organising secretariat going hand-to-mouth in The Hague. Members from the host country raise enough money to pay for the hotel and conference when it takes place on their home soil (they are allowed to ask extra guests to make this money-raising easier).
Participants pay their own long-haul travel, but are usually shepherded as VIPs from the nearest airport. They also pay expenses over and above the basic bill for their hotel room - the Bilderberg custom being that a whole hotel is booked for each meeting so that Bilderbergers may be alone with each other, their words, their thoughts and, these days, their security men.
When you have scaled the Bilderberg, you have arrived.
Q: 'The Coil' is a secret group of international moguls with staggering power. According to your Author's Note, they're based on a real one. Tell us how that happened.
GL: About nine years ago during other research, I stumbled upon one of those paragraphs that are the lifeblood of a novelist. It mentioned a yearly meeting of powerful world leaders that called itself the Bilderberg Group. I was instantly intrigued. Unlike the World Economic Forum, with its hundreds of government and business VIPs who usually gather in Davos, Switzerland, and Allen & Co., which is legendary for its smaller but even more elite summits in Sun Valley, Idaho, I had never heard of the Bilderbergers.
For good reason. As it turned out, the organization not only shuns publicity, it requires attendees to keep their invitations secret and to divulge nothing about the weekend itself. I spent months confirming the Bilderbergers even existed, although it had been founded decades before, in the early 1950s, and half its membership includes famous Americans like Henry Kissinger, Donald Rumsfeld, James D. Wolfensohn (the World Bank) and Donald Graham (The Washington Post).
Today, the Bilderbergers are quietly but publicly acknowledged in Europe and Canada, but not here in the United States, not yet, which of course intrigues me even more. By the way, they named themselves for the venue in the Netherlands where they first met --- the Bilderberg Hotel............(...continued)

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.
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.
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!

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.
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.
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"
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.
Lingering questions about Robin Cook's death
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
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
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.
Please do also check out last years' Bilderberg date and venue dicoverer Marek Tysis' new analysis of this year's meeting. And join the hunt to track them down!
Be prepared, his English is a bit ropey but the analysis excellent. Anyway you can get slick but content free presentation any day by just switching your TV on!
