The Mantra…"There Is Going To Have To Be Global Governance"

Posted on

One by one, ‘leaders’ are dropping the hint of ‘a one world government’ that is in your best interests.

The latest…Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper at the G8.

At about the 3:20 mark Harper throws in his global governance line but he stumbles over his words. Mediocre propagandist puppets sometimes have a bit of trouble getting their lines straight.

Harper’s words come right on the heels of the Pope’s “true world political authority” statements that he signed off on.

There’s a pattern here. The ‘rulers’ think that they can just talk us into submitting to their schemes through the incessant controlled media telling us this is the way it is.

If this controlling technique doesn’t work, I’m sure there are many other ‘tricks’ up their sleeve.

More war, pandemics, economic collapse and of course, the old tried and true ‘false flag’ come to mind. The backups in case the psyops of the media do not work.

A great number of people are aware of what is happening. A much greater number are numb to any semblance of truth.

So, what are we going to do about it?

Chorus call for a New World Order

In economic and financial desperation, leaders around the globe are openly calling for the creation of a “New World Order,” including prominent “old guard” members of the Trilateral Commission. Is the baby about to be born?

The return of the Trilateral undead

It’s not accidental that so many of the original members of the Trilateral Commission, all of whom are now well into their 80’s, have returned to dance in the limelight once again.

TC Members like Henry Kissinger, Zbigniew Brzezinski, Paul Volker and Brent Scowcroft, for instance.

On January 5, 2009, Henry Kissinger was interviewed by CNBC on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. His voice still raspy and spoken with a thick accent, he responded to a question about President-elect Obama’s first actions as President:

“he can give new impetus to American foreign policy … I think that his task will be to develop an overall strategy for America in this period, when really a ‘new world order’ can be created. It’s a great opportunity. It isn’t such a crisis.”

While the rest of the country slips into depression and financial collapse, to Kissinger “it isn’t such a crisis.”

And, of course it isn’t — for him.

Kissinger has been patiently waiting since at least 1973 for his New World Order egg to hatch.

And remember, in July 1971, Kissinger was the very first diplomat (under Nixon) to visit Communist China in order to open up trade relations with that brutal dictatorship. Oh, and that was an absolutely top-secret trip.

The Trilateral Commission was founded in 1973 to create a “New International Economic Order.” George H.W. Bush, also a Trilateral, later spoke of inaugurating a “New World Order.” Hence, in Trilateral literature, the two terms have been synonymous ever since. (see The Trilateral Commission: Usurping Sovereignty)

Kissinger earlier praised Obama’s picks for economic recovery, and why not?

Obama picked Trilateral Commission wonder boy Timothy Geithner to be Secretary of the Treasury. The rest of the team are protégés of Robert Rubin, also a Trilateral and former Treasury Secretary under Clinton.

Obama’s top foreign policy advisor has been Zbigniew Brzezinski, the co-founder of the Trilateral Commission with David Rockefeller.

In 1974, Brzezinski stated,

“We need to change the international system for a global system in which new, active and creative forces recently developed – should be integrated. This system needs to include Japan. Brazil, the oil producing countries, and even the USSR, to the extent which the Soviet Union is willing to participate in a global systemthe reality of our times is that a modern society such as the U.S. needs a central coordinating and renovating organ which cannot be made up of six hundred people..”

For the uninitiated, “six hundred people” refers to Congress: Replace it with a Socialist/Communist central coordinating organ.

The call in Europe

Sarkozy (France), Merkel (Germany) and Blair (Great Britain) are all calling for a New World Order.

On January 7, French President Nicolas Sarkozy said that “In the 21st century, there it is no longer a single nation who can say what we should do or what we should think.”

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that the world “cannot continue as it is.”

Both Tony Blair and the current British PM Gordon Brown have repeatedly called for a New World Order for many years, but their cries are intensified.

Interestingly, when President-elect Obama delivered a speech in 2008 to hundreds of thousands in Germany, he stated,

Tonight, I speak to you not as a candidate for President, but as a citizen — a proud citizen of the United States, and a fellow citizen of the world.”

The media hailed Obama for his vision of America and the New World Order.

Sampling of the global press

Indeed, the chorus for a New World Order is being heard around the world.

A crisis made to order?

Dr. Robert A. Pastor, the principal visionary of the North American Union, stated in 2007,

“What I’m saying is that a crisis is an event which can force democratic governments to make difficult decisions like those that will be required to create a North American Community,” he said. “It’s not that I want another 9/11 crisis, but having a crisis would force decisions that otherwise might not get made.”

So, now we have the mother of all crises and on a global scale at that: Financial, political, religious (remember Islam?).

And socialistic solutions are being railroaded through on a daily basis.

If the New World Order baby is about to be delivered, wouldn’t you expect the fathers (Kissinger, Brzezinski, Scowcroft, Volker, Rockefeller, et al) to show up and pace the floor?

Everybody figures that these guys are just crusty and harmless old men, but I will guarantee that when the baby is finally born the screaming will begin.

WELCOME TO THE NEW WORLD ORDER

22 11 2008


By: Peter Chamberlin

In the kingdom of the master deceivers black is white, war is peace and freedom is slavery. The object of the avalanche of lies that washes over us all on a daily basis is to so overwhelm us with lies and half-truths that we can no longer recognize the truth, even when it is staring us in the face. Whenever a society reaches this stage of disinformation saturation then truth itself becomes the most effective lie.

Fantasy becomes the coin of the realm, as truth no longer reflects its absolute weight, appearing no different from the darkness that surrounds it. In this world, the imaginings of delusional minds are given life, as people embrace the concept of the suspension of disbelief. When people are trained to voluntarily dispense with reason, for the sake of entertainment, they become ripe for ultimate deception. People will believe anything.

Into this darkened delusional realm psychological manipulation devices are introduced, such as television and movies, for the insertion of complex ideas into the unreasoning escapist minds of the masses. Using these tools, the master manipulators practice their dark arts of psychological manipulation, to eradicate unacceptable ideas and to implant new acceptable versions of “reality” into the minds of the conditioned sheeple.

Through technology political leaders indoctrinate the people into embracing the elite’s beliefs; the exact opposite of the democratic ideal. Through this brainwashing process roles are reversed, the people are coerced into representing the will of the “representatives.” This unholy union of politicians with the scientists and intellectuals who developed the mind-warping sciences is taking America first, and then the rest of the world, into what has been called a “technocratic era” (See: Zbigniew Brzezinski, Between Two Ages: America’a Role in the Technocratic Era)

New World Order spokesman David Rockefeller (Brzezinski’s sponsor) was not afraid to speak plainly about our planned fate, when he boasted that:

“The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely
preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in the past centuries.”

The plans to create a “scientific dictatorship” for us have been hidden in plain sight, because very few people cared to open their eyes wide enough to adjust to the overwhelming darkness. Our movies and television programs echoed with the idea that the planned technocracy is an inevitable “evolutionary” step, that, overall, it will be a good thing for mankind. Science fiction is the most fertile medium to indoctrinate us with hope in the future and faith in science as our salvation.

In “The Ascendancy of the Scientific Dictatorship Part Two: Science Fiction and the Sirius Connection,” Phillip D. Collins asserts that:

“Traditionally, ’science fiction’ has appeared to most people as an adolescent genre, the province of time-wasting fantasies. This has been the great strength of this genre as a vehicle for the inculcation of the ideology favored by the Cryptocracy. As J.H. Towsen points out in Clowns, only when people think they are not buying something can the real sales pitch begin. While it is true that with the success of NASA’s Gemini space program and the Apollo moon flights more serious attention and respectability was accorded ’science fiction,’ nonetheless in its formative seeding time, from the late 19th century through the 1950s, the predictive program known as ’science fiction’ had the advantage of being derided as the solitary vice of misfit juveniles and marginal adults.” (Hoffman, 205)

Thus, ’science fiction’ is a means of conditioning the masses to accept future visions that the elite wish to tangibly enact. [Ed. Note: SF also widely uses Darwinian notions and language to project a fantastic future. This is another area of potential research.] This process of gradual and subtle inculcation is dubbed ‘predictive programming.’ Hoffman elaborates: ‘Predictive programming works by means of the propagation of the illusion of an infallibly accurate vision of how the world is going to look in the future’ (Hoffman, 205). Memes are instilled through the circulation of ‘mass appeal’ documents under the guise of ’science fiction’ literature. Once subsumed on a cognitive level, these memes become self-fulfilling prophecies, embraced by the masses and outwardly approximated through the efforts of the elite.”

Judging by some of the most popular science fiction movies like Matrix, V Is For Vendetta and Children of Men, it would seem that the master manipulators want us to not only learn and accept the concept of a technocratic brotherhood, but also to accept the idea that rebellion is a necessary precursor to that eventual day of global “federation.”

In order for that “great day” of the technocratic era to arrive, everyone in society will have to be conditioned to accept the official construct, and all those who fight the new system will have to be removed from society. America must experience martial law day, in order to clear the way for the new order.

Believe it or not, there is an organization Technocracy.org that actually promotes acceptance of the technocratic order:

“Technocracy is science applied to society”

“Technocracy is technological social design”.

“Technocracy is a blueprint of a new method of social operation”.

In my opinion, this organization exists solely to rehabilitate the word “technocracy.”

In keeping with the theme of this paper, we must ask the question, have the master deceivers revealed the actual plan for manipulating the world into accepting this new scientific global dictatorship? Has the plan been revealed to us, under the clever disguise of fiction? There is one piece of universally discredited evidence that fits this description, THE PROTOCOLS OF THE LEARNED ELDERS OF ZION. Because of vague similarities in order and cited examples with an earlier work of fiction, Dialogue In Hell Between Machiavelli and Montesquie, the work was discredited as plagiarism, thus eliminating discussions of the accuracy of the descriptions given for the inner workings of the global conspiracy that is pushing the world dictatorship of bankers and intellectuals. I urge everyone concerned with the plans for the new world order to examine both of these books and judge for yourself whether or not certain powerful individuals do control our press, our banks, our government, etc.

Returning to The Ascendancy of the Scientific Dictatorship Part One, researcher Collins points-out that:

“There was an original text on which the published version of the Protocols was based. This original text was not a forgery. On the contrary, it was authentic. But it had nothing whatever to do with Judaism or an ‘international Jewish conspiracy.’ It issued, rather, from some Masonic organization or Masonically oriented secret society that incorporated the word ‘Sion’.” (Baigent, et al, 194)

Given the Masonic language, one can completely discard the racist contention that the Protocols constitute evidence of an ‘international Jewish conspiracy.’ Nevertheless, the document holds some authenticity:

‘The published version of the Protocols is not, therefore, a totally fabricated text. It is, rather, a radically altered text. But despite the alterations certain vestiges of the original version can be discerned’.’ (Baigent, et al, 195)

The remnant vestiges of the original text strongly suggest Masonic origins. Having established the Masonic authorship of the Protocols, one may return to issue at hand: Freemasonic involvement in the promotion of Darwinism. Consider the following excerpt from the Protocols, which reads distinctly like a mission statement:

‘For them [the masses or cattle] let that play the principal part which we have persuaded them to accept as the dictates of science (theory). It is with this object in view that we are constantly, by means of our press, arousing a blind confidence in these theories. The intellectuals of the goyim [the masses or cattle] will puff themselves up with their knowledge and without any logical verification of it will put into effect all the information available from science, which our agentur specialists have cunningly pieced together for the purpose of educating their minds in the direction we want.”

If this is correct, then “we” in the text refers to the conspirators, and “goyim” refers to us sheeple. Re-reading the original with these changes paints a pretty accurate picture of the multiple deceptions and power plays that comprise the key elements of the conspiracy to enslave this planet to the narrow interests of elitist intellectual financiers.

Much of the world is about to be reduced to rubble so that we the people might be sifted like sand, to steal from us the little that remains.

Here is the best movie description of the new stateless world of sedated sheeple and the corporate empires that I have come across, from the movie “Network.”

“You have meddled with the primal forces of nature, Mr. Beale, and I won’t have it.

Is that clear?

You think that you have stopped a business deal.

That is not the case.

The arabs have taken billions of dollars out of this country and now they must put it back!

It is ebb and flow, tidal gravity.

It is ecological balance!

You are an old man who thinks in terms of nations and peoples.

There are no nations.

There are no peoples.

There are no Russians.

There are no Arabs.

There are no Third Worlds.

There is no West.

There is only one holistic system of systems!

One vast and immane, interwoven, interacting multi-variant, multinational dominion of dollars!

Petrol dollars, electro dollars, multi-dollars,

Reichsmarks, rins, rubles, pounds and shekels!

It is the international system of currency which determines the totality of life on this planet.

That is the natural order of things today.

That is the atomic and sub-atomic and galactic structure of things today.

And you have meddled with the primal forces of nature!

And you will atone.

Am I getting through to you?

You get up on your little 21-inch screen

And you howl about America and democracy.

There is no America.

There is no democracy.

There is only IBM and ITT.

And AT&T, and DuPont, Dow, Union Carbide and Exxon.

Those are the nations of the world today.

What do you think the Russians talk about in their councils of state?

Karl Marx?

They get out their linear programming charts, statistical decision theorise, minimax solutions and compute the price-cost probabilities of their transactions and investments just like we do.

We no longer live in a world of nations and ideologies, Mr. Beale,

The world is a college of corporations,

inexorably determined by the immutable bylaws of business.

The world is a business.

It has been since man crawled out of the slime.

And our children will live, Mr. Beale, to see that perfect world,

In which there is no war or famine, oppression or brutality.

One vast and ecumenical holding company,

For whom all men will work to serve a common profit.

In which all men will hold a share of stock,

All necessities provided,

All anxieties tranquilized,

All boredom amused.

And I have chosen you, Mr. Beale, to preach this evangel.

“Why me?”

Because you’re on television, dummy.

“I have seen the face of God.”

You just might be right, Mr. Beale.

New World Order” by Gladys Holding. An illustration from part of
The Wasteland” by T.S. Elliot, translated into a contemporary
comment on today’s world situation.

In an address delivered to the Union League of Philadelphia on November 27, 1915, Nicholas Murray Butler said: The old world order changed when this war-storm broke. The old international order passed away as suddenly, as unexpectedly, and as completely as if it had been wiped out by a gigantic flood, by a great tempest, or by a volcanic eruption. The old world order died with the setting of that days sun and a new world order is being born while I speak, with birth pangs so terrible that it seems almost incredible that life could come out of such fearful suffering and such overwhelming sorrow.

In a 1919 subscription letter for the magazine International Conciliation, M. C. Alexander, the Executive Secretary of the American Association for International Conciliation wrote: The peace conference has assembled. It will make the most momentous decisions in history, and upon these decisions will rest the stability of the new world order and the future peace of the world.

In August, 1927, Dr. Augustus O. Thomas, President of the World Federation of Education Associations said:

If there are those who think we are to jump immediately into a new world order, actuated by complete understanding and brotherly love, they are doomed to disappointment. If we are ever to approach that time, it will be after patient and persistent effort of long duration. The present international situation of mistrust and fear can only be corrected by a formula of equal status, continuously applied, to every phase of international contacts, until the cobwebs of the old order are brushed out of the minds of the people of all lands.

Adolf Hitler said: National Socialism will use its own revolution for the establishing of a new world order.

In the 1932 book The New World Order, author F. S. Marvin said that the League of Nations was the first attempt at a New World Order, and said that nationality must rank below the claims of mankind as a whole.

Edward VIII became King of England on January 20, 1936, but he was forced to abdicate the throne eleven months later, when he married a commoner. He became the Duke of Windsor, and in July, 1940, became the governor of the Bahamas. He is on record as saying: Whatever happens, whatever the outcome, a new Order is going to come into the world … It will be buttressed with police power … When peace comes this time there is going to be a new Order of social justice. It cannot be another Versailles.

In a New York Times article in October, 1940, called New World Order Pledged to Jews, comes the following excerpt: In the first public declaration on the Jewish question since the outbreak of the war, Arthur Greenwood, member without portfolio in the British War Cabinet, assured the Jews of the United States that when victory was achieved an effort would be made to found a new world order based on the ideals of justice and peace.

The Declaration of the Federation of the World, written by the Congress on World Federation, which was adopted by the Legislatures of some states, including North Carolina (1941), New Jersey (1942), and Pennsylvania (1943), said:

If totalitarianism wins this conflict, the world will be ruled by tyrants, and individuals will be slaves. If democracy wins, the nations of the earth will be united in a commonwealth of free peoples; and individuals, wherever found, will be the sovereign units of the new world order.

From an article in a June, 1942 edition of the Philadelphia Inquirer: Undersecretary of State Sumner Welles tonight called for the early creation of an international organization of anti-Axis nations to control the world during the period between the armistice at the end of the present war and the setting up of a new world order on a permanent basis.

According to a February, 1962 New York Times article called Rockefeller Bids Free Lands Unite: Calls at Harvard for Drive to Build New World Order, New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller told an audience at Harvard University:

The United Nations has not been able nor can it be able to shape a new world order which events so compellingly demand (The new world order that will answer economic, military, and political problems) urgently requires, I believe, that the United States take the leadership among all the free peoples to make the underlying concepts and aspirations of national sovereignty truly meaningful through the federal approach. The Associated Press reported that on July 26, 1968, Governor Rockefeller said in a speech to the International Platform Association at the Sheraton Park Hotel in New York, that as President, he would work toward international creation of a New World Order.

Richard Nixon wrote in the October, 1967 issue of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) journal Foreign Affairs: The developing coherence of Asian regional thinking is reflected in a disposition to consider problems and loyalties in regional terms, and to evolve regional approaches to development needs and to the evolution of a new world order. In 1972, while in China, in a toast to Chinese Premier Chou En-lai, Nixon expressed the hope that each of us has to build a new world order.

Richard Gardner, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for International Organizations under Kennedy and Johnson, and a member of the Trilateral Commission, wrote in the April, 1974 issue of Foreign Affairs (pg. 558):

In short, the house of world order will have to be built from the bottom up rather than from the top down. It will look like a great booming, buzzing confusion, to use William James famous description of reality, but an end run around national sovereignty, eroding it piece by piece, will accomplish much more than the old fashioned frontal assault.

Richard A. Falk, wrote in his article Toward a New World Order: Modest Methods and Drastic Visions (from the 1975 book On the Creation of a Just World Order):

The existing order is breaking down at a very rapid rate, and the main uncertainty is whether mankind can exert a positive role in shaping a new world order or is doomed to await collapse in a passive posture. We believe a new world order will be born no later than early in the next century and that the death throes of the old and the birth pangs of the new will be a testing time for the human species.

In 1975, 32 Senators and 92 Representatives in Congress signed A Declaration of Interdependence (written by the historian Henry Steele Commager) which said that we must join with others to bring forth a new world orderNarrow notions of national sovereignty must not be permitted to curtail that obligation. Congresswoman Marjorie Holt, who refused to sign it, said:

It calls for the surrender of our national sovereignty to international organizations. It declares that our economy should be regulated by international authorities. It proposes that we enter a new world order that would redistribute the wealth created by the American people.

In an October, 1975 speech to the General Assembly of the United Nations, Henry Kissinger said:

My countrys history, Mr. President, tells us that it is possible to fashion unity while cherishing diversity, that common action is possible despite the variety of races, interests, and beliefs we see here in this chamber. Progress and peace and justice are attainable. So we say to all peoples and governments: Let us fashion together a new world order.

During the 1976 Presidential campaign, Jimmy Carter said:

We must replace balance of power politics with world order politics. In a February 14, 1977 speech, Carter said: I want to assure you that the relations of the United States with the other countries and peoples of the world will be guided during my own Administration by our desire to shape a world order that is more responsive to human aspirations. The United States will meet its obligation to help create a stable, just, and peaceful world order.

Harvard professor Stanley Hoffman wrote in his book Primacy or World Order:

What will have to take place is a gradual adaptation of the social, economic and political system of the United States to the imperatives of world order.

Conservative author George Weigel, director of the Ethics and Public Policy Center in Washington, D.C. said:

If the United States does not unashamedly lay down the rules of world order and enforce them … then there is little reason to think that peace, security, freedom or prosperity will be served.

In a December, 1988 speech, Mikhail Gorbachev told the United Nations: Further global progress is now possible only through a quest for universal consensus in the movement towards a new world order.

The man who put the New World Order in the limelight, and did more than anyone to bring about its acceptance, was President George Bush. In a February, 1990 fundraiser in San Francisco, Bush said:

Time and again in this century, the political map of the world was transformed. And in each instance, a New World Order came about through the advent of a new tyrant or the outbreak of a bloody global war, or its end.

On Saturday, August 25, 1990, the United Nations Security Council voted unanimously to allow a joint military force to use whatever means necessary to enforce a UN blockade against the country of Iraq. That afternoon, Lt. Gen. Brent Scowcroft, a CFR member and former aide to Henry Kissinger, who was the National Security Advisor to Bush, was interviewed by Charles Bierbauer of the Cable News Network (CNN) and used the term a New World Order. In August, 1990, (According to an article in the Washington Post in May, 1991) he said:

We believe we are creating the beginning of a New World Order coming out of the collapse of the U.S.-Soviet antagonisms.

During a September, 1990 speech at the United Nations, he announced that we are moving to a New World Order. Later, on the eve of the Gulf War, Scowcroft said:

A colossal event is upon us, the birth of a New World Order. In the fall of 1990, on the way to Brussels, Belgium, Secretary of State James Baker said: If we really believe that theres an opportunity here for a New World Order, and many of us believe that, we cant start out by appeasing aggression.

In September, 1990, the Wall Street Journal quoted Rep. Richard Gephardt as saying:

We can see beyond the present shadows of war in the Middle East to a New World Order where the strong work together to deter and stop aggression. This was precisely Franklin Roosevelts and Winston Churchills vision for peace for the post-war period.

In a September 11, 1990 televised address to a joint session of Congress, Bush said:

A new partnership of nations has begun. We stand today at a unique and extraordinary moment. The crisis in the Persian Gulf, as grave as it is, offers a rare opportunity to move toward an historic period of cooperation. Out of these troubled times, our fifth objective a New World Order can emerge … When we are successful, and we will be, we have a real chance at this New World Order, an order in which a credible United Nations can use its peacekeeping role to fulfill the promise and vision of the United Nations founders.

The September 17, 1990 issue of Time magazine said that the Bush administration would like to make the United Nations a cornerstone of its plans to construct a New World Order.

In a September 25, 1990 address to the UN, Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard Shevardnadze described Iraqs invasion of Kuwait as an act of terrorism (that) has been perpetrated against the emerging New World Order.

In an October 1, 1990, UN address, President Bush talked about the,

collective strength of the world community expressed by the UN an historic movement towards a New World Order a new partnership of nations a time when humankind came into its own to bring about a revolution of the spirit and the mind and begin a journey into a new age.

On October 30, 1990, Bush suggested that the UN could help create a New World Order and a long era of peace.

Jeanne Kirkpatrick, former U.S. Ambassador to the UN, said that one of the purposes for the Desert Storm operation, was to show to the world how a reinvigorated United Nations could serve as a global policeman in the New World Order.

On December 31, 1990, Gorbachev said that the New World Order would be ushered in by the Gulf War.

Prior to the Gulf War, on January 29, 1991, Bush told the nation in his State of the Union address:

What is at stake is more than one small country, it is a big idea a New World Order, where diverse nations are drawn together in a common cause to achieve the universal aspirations of mankind; peace and security, freedom, and the rule of law. Such is a world worthy of our struggle, and worthy of our childrens future. He also said: If we do not follow the dictates of our inner moral compass and stand up for human life, then his lawlessness will threaten the peace and democracy of the emerging New World Order we now see, this long dreamedof vision weve all worked toward for so long.

In a speech to the families of servicemen at Fort Gordon, Georgia on February 1, 1991, Bush said:

When we win, and we will, we will have taught a dangerous dictator, and any tyrant tempted to follow in his footsteps, that the United States has a new credibility and that what we say goes, and that there is no place for lawless aggression in the Persian Gulf and in this New World Order that we seek to create.

Following a February 6, 1991 speech to the Economic Club of New York City, Bush answered a reporters question about what the New World Order was, by saying:

Now, my vision of a New World Order foresees a United Nations with a revitalized peace-keeping function.

Bush said in a speech to the Congress on March 6, 1991:

Now, we can see a new world coming into view. A world in which there is a very real prospect of a New World Order. In the words of Winston Churchill, a world order in which the principles of justice and fair play … protect the weak against the strong. A world where the United Nations, freed from cold war stalemate, is poised to fulfill the historic vision of its founders. A world in which freedom and respect for human rights find a home among all nations.

On August 21, 1991, after the failed coup in the Soviet Union, CNN reporter Mary Tillotson said that the Presidents New World Order is back on track, now stronger than ever. In an interview with CNN at the height of the Gulf War, Scowcroft said that he had doubts about the significance of Mid-East objectives regarding global policy. When asked if that meant he didnt believe in the New World Order, he replied: Oh, I believe in it. But our definition, not theirs. On January 25, 1993, Clintons Secretary of State, Warren Christopher, said in a CNN interview: We must get the New World Order on track and bring the UN into its correct role in regards to the United States.

In April, 1992, Sen. Joseph R. Biden Jr. wrote the article How I Learned to Love the New World Order for The Wall Street Journal.

While campaigning for the passage of NAFTA, Kissinger said: NAFTA is a major stepping stone to the New World Order. In a July 18, 1993 Los Angeles Times article about NAFTA, Kissinger is quoted as saying:

What Congress will have before it is not a conventional trade agreement but the architecture of a new international system a first step toward a New World Order.

On May 4, 1994, Leslie Gelb, CFR President, said on The Charlie Rose Show:

you (Charlie Rose) had me on (before) to talk about the New World Order. I talk about it all the time. Its one world now. The Council (CFR) can find, nurture, and begin to put people in the kinds of jobs this country needs. And thats going to be one of the major enterprises of the Council under me.

On September 14, 1994, while speaking at the Business Council for the United Nations, David Rockefeller said:

But this present window of opportunity, during which a truly peaceful and interdependent world order might be built, will not be open for long. Already there are powerful forces at work that threaten to destroy all of our hopes and efforts to erect an enduring structure of global interdependence.

He said at another time:

We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept the New World Order.

In the July/August 1995 issue of Foreign Affairs, Arthur Schlesinger, Jr. wrote: We are not going to achieve a New World Order without paying for it in blood as well as in words and money.

Former West German Chancellor Willy Brandt said:

The New World Order is a world that has supernational authority to regulate the world commerce and industry; an international organization that would control the production and consumption of oil; an international currency that would replace the dollar; a World Development Fund that would make funds available to free and Communist nations alike; and an international police force to enforce the edicts of the New World Order.

Somehow, the implications from these quotes, lends a sinister overtone to this New World Order. After 25 years of research, it is clear to me that this country has been infiltrated by conspirators, members of an organization who are dedicated to establishing a one-world socialist government with them in control. It sounds unbelievable, like something out of a James Bond movie, yet, it is a fact. A fact that the media has refused to publicize, even attempting to cover it up, and deny its very existence.

In the 1844 political novel Coningsby by Benjamin Disraeli, the British Prime Minister, a character known as Sidonia (which was based on Lord Rothschild, whose family he had become close friends with in the early 1840s) says:

That mighty revolution which is at this moment preparing in Germany and which will be in fact a greater and a second Reformation, and of which so little is as yet known in England, is entirely developing under the auspices of the Jews, who almost monopolize the professorial chairs of Germany … the world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes.

On September 10, 1876, in Aylesbury, Disraeli said:

The governments of the present day have to deal not merely with other governments, with emperors, kings and ministers, but also with secret societies which have everywhere their unscrupulous agents, and can at the last moment upset all the governments plans.

On October 1, 1877, Henry Edward Manning, Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster, said of the trouble in the Balkan States:

It is not emperors or kings, nor princes, that direct the course of affairs in the East. There is something else over them and behind them; and that thing is more powerful than them.

In 1902, Pope Leo XIII wrote of this power:

It bends governments to its will sometimes by promises, sometimes by threats. It has found its way into every class of Society, and forms an invisible and irresponsible power, an independent government, as it were, within the body corporate of the lawful state.

Walter Rathenau, head of German General Electric, said in 1909:

Three hundred men, all of whom know one another, direct the economic destiny of Europe and choose their successors from among themselves.

President Woodrow Wilson said in 1913:

Since I entered politics, I have chiefly had mens views confided to me privately. Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive that they better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.

John F. Hylan, mayor of New York City (1918-25), said in a March 26, 1922 speech:

…the real menace of our Republic is this invisible government which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy length over city, state and nation. Like the octopus of real life, it operates under cover of a self-created screen … At the head of this octopus are the Rockefeller Standard Oil interests and a small group of powerful banking houses generally referred to as the international bankers. The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States Government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both political parties.

In the December, 1922 edition of Foreign Affairs, Philip Kerr wrote:

Obviously there is going to be no peace or prosperity for mankind as long as (the earth) remains divided into 50 or 60 independent states until some kind of international system is created The real problem today is that of the world government.

In a letter dated November 21, 1933, Franklin D. Roosevelt wrote to confidant Colonel Edward House:

The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government ever since the days of Andrew Jackson.

In her novel, Captains and the Kings, Taylor Caldwell wrote of the plot against the people, and says that it wasnt until the era of the League of Just Men and Karl Marx that conspirators and conspiracies became one, with one aim, one objective, and one determination. Some heads of foreign governments refer to this group as The Magicians, Stalin called them The Dark Forces, and President Eisenhower described them as the military-industrial complex. In the July 26, 1936 issue of the New York Times, Joseph Kennedy, patriarch of the Kennedy family, was quoted as saying: Fifty men have run America and thats a high figure. In 1952, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter, said: The real rulers in Washington are invisible, and exercise power from behind the scenes.

According to the California State Investigating Committee on Education (1953):

So-called modern Communism is apparently the same hypocritical and deadly world conspiracy to destroy civilization that was founded by the secret order of The Illuminati in Bavaria on May 1, 1776, and that raised its whorey head in our colonies here at the critical period before the adoption of our Federal Constitution.

[The] purpose of this book is to show the connection between the Illuminati, and what would become known as the New World Order. Through the years, the term Illuminati has developed an anti-Semitic connotation, because some researchers have insisted that the move toward a one world government has been engineered as part of a Jewish conspiracy. This is not true. One of the documents that provided evidence concerning this has been proven to be a complete fabrication. Although some of the International Bankers which actually control this group are Jewish, there is no basis for indicting the entire Jewish race.

In 1966, Dr. Carroll Quigley, a professor of history at the Foreign Service School of Georgetown University, published a 1311-page book called Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time. On page 950 he says:

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. I know of the operations of this network because I have studied it for twenty years and was permitted for two years, in the early 1960s, to examine its papers and secret records. I have no aversion to it or to most of its aims and have, for much of my life, been close to it and to many of its instruments … my chief difference of opinion is that it wishes to remain unknown, and I believe its role in history is significant enough to be known … because the American branch of this organization (sometimes called the Eastern Establishment) has played a very significant role in the history of the United States in the last generation.

On page 324, he elaborates even further by saying:

In addition to these pragmatic goals, the powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements, arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the worlds central banks which were themselves private corporations. The growth of financial capitalism made possible a centralization of world economic control and use of this power for the direct benefit of financiers and indirect injury of all other economic groups.

Bill Clinton, during his acceptance speech at the Democratic Convention, said:

As a teenager, I heard John Kennedys summons to citizenship. And then, as a student at Georgetown (University where he attended 1964-68) I heard that call clarified by a professor I had named Carroll Quigley.

This is where Clinton received his indoctrination as an internationalist favoring one-world government.

In the mid-1970s, Dr. Tom Berry, who was pastor of the Baptist Bible Church in Elkton, Maryland, said: At most, there are only 5,000 people in the whole world who have a significant understanding of the plan.

Professor Arnold Toynbee (a founding member of the Round Table) said in a June, 1931 speech to the Institute of International Affairs in Copenhagen:

We are at present working discreetly with all our might to wrest this mysterious force called sovereignty out of the clutches of the local nation states of the world.

H. G. Wells, a member of the Fabian Society, wrote in his 1933 book The Shape of Things To Come:

Although world government has been plainly coming for some years, although it had been endlessly feared and murmured against, it found no opposition prepared anywhere.

Major General John Frederick Charles Fuller, a British military historian, said in 1941:

The government of the Western nations, whether monarchical or republican, had passed into the invisible hands of a plutocracy, international in power and grasp. It was, I venture to suggest, this semi-occult power which pushed the masses of the American people into the cauldron of World War I.

On June 28, 1945, President Harry Truman said in a speech:

It will be just as easy for nations to get along in a republic of the world as it is for us to get along in a republic of the United States.

On October 24, 1945, Senator Glen Taylor (D-Idaho) introduced Senate Resolution No. 183, which called for the Senate to go on record as advocating the establishment of a world republic, including an international police force.

In 1947, the American Education Fellowship (formerly known as the Progressive Education Association) called for the establishment of a genuine world order, an order in which national sovereignty is subordinate to world authority

Brock Chisholm, the first director of the UN World Health Organization said:

To achieve one world government it is necessary to remove from the minds of men their individualism, their loyalty to family traditions and national identification.

On February 9, 1950, a Senate Foreign Relations subcommittee introduced Concurrent Resolution 66 which began:

Whereas, in order to achieve universal peace and justice, the present Charter of the United Nations should be changed to provide a true world government constitution.

James Warburg, a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on February 17, 1950: We shall have world government whether or not you like it, by conquest or consent.

Sen. William Jenner said in a February 23, 1954 speech:

Today the path to total dictatorship in the United States can be laid by strictly legal means, unseen and unheard by the Congress, the President, or the people … Outwardly we have a constitutional government. We have operating within our government and political system, another body representing another form of government, a bureaucratic elite which believes our Constitution is outmoded and is sure that it is the winning side … All the strange developments in foreign policy agreements may be traced to this group who are going to make us over to suit their pleasure … This political action group has its own local political support organizations, its own pressure groups, its own vested interests, its foothold within our government.

In September, 1960, Elmo Roper, in an address called The Goal is Government of All the World said:

For it becomes clear that the first step toward world government cannot be completed until we have advanced on the four fronts: the economic, the military, the political and the social.

In a 1963 symposium (sponsored by the leftist Fund for the Republic, of the Ford Foundation) called

The Elite and the Electorate: Is Government by the People Possible? Senator J. William Fulbright, the Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee said: The case for government by elites is irrefutable … government by the people is possible but highly improbable.

Sen. Russell Long of Louisiana, who for 18 years was the Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, said that our government is completely and totally out of control. We do not know how much long term debt we have put on the American people. We dont even know our financial condition from year to year… He also said:

We have created a bureaucracy in Washington so gigantic that it is running this government for the bureaucracy, the way they want, and not for the people of the United States. We no longer have representative government in America.

Congressman Larry P. McDonald, who, in 1983 was killed in the Korean Airlines flight 007 that had been shot down by the Soviets said:

The drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one world government combining supercapitalism and Communism under the same tent, all under their control, Do I mean conspiracy? Yes I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent.

Zbigniew Brzezinski, who was President Carters National Security Advisor, said:

this regionalization is in keeping with the tri-lateral plan which calls for a gradual convergence of East and West, ultimately leading toward the goal of one world government National sovereignty is no longer a viable concept.

Norman Cousins, the honorary Chairman of Planetary Citizens for the World We Chose (as well as the President of the World Federalist Association) is quoted in the magazine Human Events as saying:

World government is coming, in fact, it is inevitable. No arguments for or against it can change that fact.

During the 1991 Bilderberger Conference held in Evians, France, Dr. Henry Kissinger said:

Today, America would be outraged if UN troops entered Los Angeles to restore order (referring to the riot caused by the Rodney King incident). Tomorrow they will be grateful! This is especially true if they were told that there were an outside threat from beyond, whether real or promulgated, that threatened our very existence. It is then that all peoples of the world will plead to deliver them from this evil. The one thing every man fears is the unknown. When presented with this scenario, individual rights will be willingly relinquished for the guarantee of their well-being granted to them by the World Government.

On October 29, 1991, David Funderburk, a former U.S. Ambassador to Romania (1981-85), told a group in North Carolina:

George Bush has been surrounding himself with people who believe in one-world government. They believe that the Soviet system and the American system are converging, and the manner in which they would accomplish that was through the United Nations, the majority of whose 166 member states are socialist, atheist, and anti-American.

Time magazine on July 20, 1992, in an article called The Birth of the Global Nation, Strobe Talbott, an Editor (later Clintons Deputy Secretary of State) wrote:

In the next century, nations as we know it will be obsolete; all states will recognize a single, global authority. National sovereignty wasnt such a good idea after all … But it has taken the events in our own wondrous and terrible century to clinch the case for world government.

In 1993 he received the Norman Cousins Global Governance Award for the article and for what he has accomplished for the cause of global governance.

Pope John Paul II said:

By the end of this decade (2000) we will live under the first one world government. One world government is inevitable.

Havent you wondered why things are the way they are. That even though a new President is elected and a new Administration takes over, executive policy does not change, nor does the State of the Nation which continues to get worse. Is there some sort of group that has infiltrated both political parties, our government, and many other governments, which has for years been creating and controlling world events, and is only now being officially identified, because it is too late to stop this juggernaut? Yes, I believe there is. That is the purpose of this book, to trace the origin and growth of the group which has come to be known as the New World Order, and why there is such a massive campaign to accept it.

President Bill Clinton said in his first inaugural address:

Profound and powerful forces are shaking and remaking our world, and the urgent question of our time is whether we can make change our friend and not our enemy.

You need to know just exactly what these changes are, and how they will affect the lives and you and your family. Abraham Lincolns pledge of government of the people, by the people, for the people, has become a joke. After reading this book, you will know why things are the way they are; and when you hear that They are responsible for something, you will know who They are. MORE

Inflation and the New World Order

Posted on

by Richard C. Cook

Atlantic Free Press

https://i2.wp.com/www.susanmargaret.com/images/SMB_sunlake.jpg

The sunlight on the lake sparkles at dawn. As they have done for millions of years, the rounded tree-shrouded shoulders of the Green Mountains loom above the still waters. A loon calls from the next lake over. Who would guess that that not far from such serenity the world’s most powerful nation was teetering on the brink of disaster? Though here in the bosom of nature one wonders why we should be surprised. Nations and empires come and then they go.

ARE THINGS REALLY THIS BAD?

Just before we left Washington, D.C., the Bush administration announced that it was expecting the largest federal budget deficit in history to be racked up in fiscal year 2009 starting September 1 — $490 billion likely to be added to the national debt. This doesn’t even count the “supplemental appropriations” during the coming year which are the preferred method for off-budget financing of the Iraq War.

Exiting the Washington-Baltimore metropolitan area we passed the gigantic rows of glass and steel office towers along the interstate highway corridors. Further in the distance were rows of McMansions thrown up in what once were corn fields. Built for an automobile culture, the viability of both towers and houses has been stretched to the limit by $4 a gallon gas.

We drive through rural Pennsylvania and southern New York state. Homes and businesses look seedy, run down. What was once a vibrant and prosperous small-town culture in this part of the country seems exhausted. When we stop in Oneonta, New York, the prices at a local restaurant are out-of-sight, and only the Walmart seems bustling.

We eat sandwiches at a Subway where at the table next to us a young man with his elderly parents is holding a book on black magic. The headline on a copy of the New York Post says, “N.Y. for Sale.” The lead paragraph reads: “Warning of a looming economic calamity, Gov. Paterson yesterday called an emergency session of the state legislature — and raised the specter that New York may have to sell off roads, bridges, and tunnels to close a massive and still-growing budget deficit.”

Are things really this bad? Our cottage on the lake has internet service, and the next day I read the Washington Post’s lead headline: “U.S. Economy Grows at Solid Pace in 2nd Quarter.” The Post, despite its occasional liberal posturing on social issues, is the American Pravda, the closest thing we have to an official newsletter of the establishment elite.

But even the Post has to come clean a little, stating in its lead: “Much of the improvement came from the one-time bump from economic stimulus payments, raising prospects of weaker performance in months ahead.” Matters would have been worse, the Post notes, except that the weaker U.S. dollar has caused a rise in exports and foreign tourism, though the trade deficit remains horrendous, having hit $711.6 billion in 2007.

Of course the weakening dollar also makes it easier for foreigners to buy American businesses at fire-sale prices. This happened with the recent purchase of Anheuser-Busch by the Belgian company InBev, adding to the $2 trillion spent by foreigners to acquire American companies since 1978. (EconomyInCrisis.org)

“SLOWDOWN” OR RECESSION?

The Post’s ambiguity over the condition of the economy reflects the chasm between the official government gloss on events and the actual daily experience of people who work for a living. According to the Bush administration, we are in a “slowdown,” not a recession. The GDP is still growing, they say, though at less than two percent annually.

Of course much of this “growth” reflects paper financial transactions, not the creation of wealth through production of new goods and services. But if someone makes money and the government can tax it, it’s part of the GDP.

A better measure is the actual amount of money available to working men and women for everyday expenditures. The Federal Reserve calls it M1, cash-on-hand or money held in checking or NOW accounts. In fact, M1 has not increased appreciably since late 2003, hovering at any given time between $1.3 and $1.4 trillion.

This means that for the producing economy, we have been in a recession now for almost four years, because the real value of M1 has eroded due to inflation. And it’s in the inflation statistics that the rift between the party line and daily experience is most striking.

According to the government, inflation is relatively low and has been for some time. The 2007 rate was calculated at about four percent, up from two percent in 2004. Yet we all know that the actual cost-of-living is skyrocketing. Gas costs twice as much as it did a year ago. The increase in food prices has been devastating to the family budget. Even with the bursting of the housing bubble, mortgages and rents are much higher than a decade ago, and the costs of medical care and higher education have continued to climb steadily. So what is going on?

It’s been well-documented that the government’s Consumer Price Index is not a true measure of what it takes to sustain life. For one thing, the methodology for measuring the CPI was changed in the 1990s to eliminate certain major items, such as the cost of home ownership. Other items, such as federal, state, and local taxes were never included. Finally, some items such as computer equipment have declined in price. So even though not everyone purchases such equipment in substantial amounts, the CPI is thereby moderated.

Why is this done? According to commodities analyst Danny Bannister:

“Looking at it from the government point of view, there’s a strong political motivation to understate the CPI. By understating, it keeps COLA adjustments down on entitlements, which are at this point the largest part of the government’s budget. And by understating CPI, the government can minimize the inflationary impact on things such as rents, which are indexed to CPI, or wages, pensions and a whole list of ancillary costs to artificially keep inflation rates down. Bottom-line: the published CPI understates the real inflation rate.” (Michael Hodges, “Grandfather Economic Report,” July 2008)

In fact the Federal Reserve has gone to exhaustive lengths to avoid even using the word “inflation,” which in Fed-speak often refers to upward pressure on wages and salaries rather than prices of products or commodities. Wages and salaries have been stagnant, with purchasing power steadily declining since the recession of 2000-2001. Instead, the primary source of new money within the consumer economy has been derived from capital gains due to the rise in housing prices that have now reversed.

The fact that consumers are going broke is recognized in a back-handed way by Fed officials such as Sandra Pianalto, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland and a voting member of the Federal Open Market Committee. Pianalto said in a recent speech in Paris, “While sometimes devastating, these global relative-price pressures are not the same thing as inflation.”

As writer Colin Barr explains in a recent article in Fortune, the Fed is reluctant to identify “relative price pressures” as inflation because it does not want to make the current recession worse by raising interest rates. What is the Fed’s rationale? “It’s because,” Barr writes, “the Fed remains skeptical that high commodity prices will ripple through the economy, leading to broad price hikes and big wage increases.” (Fortune, June 26, 2008)

Or, as Sandra Pianalto puts it, “As consumers spend more money for higher-priced petroleum and agricultural goods, they eventually have less money to spend on other goods and services. Other relative prices must then fall.”

In other words, “Fed to consumers: ‘drop dead.’” If you can’t afford gas and food, stop buying other items, because while the income of whoever is benefiting goes up, yours will not.

So what should you stop paying for? Maybe your mortgage payment, credit card debt, or student loans? If you can’t afford your real estate taxes, shouldn’t you sell your house — if you can find a buyer in a depressed market? If you are elderly and have to choose between food and medicine, maybe eat dog food?

Also quoted in Barr’s Fortune article is WarrenBuffett, the billionaire investor, who is at least honest about it. According to Barr, Buffet has “fingered ‘exploding’ inflation…as the biggest risk to the economy. ‘I think inflation is really picking up,’ Buffett said on CNBC. ‘It’s huge right now, whether it’s steel or oil…We see it everywhere.’”

INFLATION AS CLASS WARFARE?

Then what is the cause of the inflation? On this subject, commentators are all over the map, often without citing any truly definitive data. Neither the government nor politicians offer any help at all, even as companies like Exxon-Mobil, BP, and Shell report quarter-after-quarter of record profits. What have we heard from John McCain or Barack Obama, for instance, on the subject? Answer: nothing.

So is it true, as Professor James Petras said in a recent article, that the causes are not accidental, but are “products of public policies which deeply affect markets, supply and demand, consumers, producers and speculators”? According to Petras, these policies result in “declining capitalist investment in the productive economy, the vast increase of capital flowing in the paper economy, the huge increases in profits and the grotesque salaries, bonuses and payoffs to senior executives, totally unrelated to ‘performance.’” (James Petras, “Inflation and the Specter of World Inflation,” Information Clearing House, July 20, 2008)

In this respect, inflation is a wealth-transfer mechanism that benefits the already-rich. Petras continues:

“In other words, in the contemporary economy, inflation benefits the wealthy because they pay their workers in deflated currency, while they can take advantage of inflation to further jack up prices and then income. [Thus] the upper classes have fortified their economic positions to take account of inflation through their power over prices, income and other compensations in a way that wage workers and people on fixed income and other vulnerable sectors cannot. Bankers protect their loans via adjustable interest rates. Monopoly resource owners jack up prices to retain profits. Wholesalers mark up prices to compensate for higher commodity prices. Large-scale retailers squeeze final consumers – the great majority at the bottom of the production and distribution chain.”

Doubtless there is an impact from all these factors, though no one knows for sure how much. With regard to food prices, geopolitical factors deserve particularly deep scrutiny. Petras writes:

“In Asia, particularly Pakistan, India, Indonesia, South Korea, Philippines, Nepal, Mongolia, and China, hundreds of millions of workers, peasants, artisans, and low-paid self employed workers, as well as housewives and pensioners have engaged in sustained mass protests as they experience a decline in the quality and quantity of food purchases as prices skyrocket. In Africa, hunger stalks the land and major food riots have occurred from Egypt through Sub-Saharan Africa to South Africa. In the Caribbean, Central and South America, food riots have led to the overthrow of regimes, mass protests, road blockages from Argentina, Bolivia, through Colombia, Venezuela and Haiti.”

In Haiti, hungry people eat mud cakes laced with salt and a little margarine. As reported by Rory Carroll of The Guardian UK:

“The global food and fuel crisis has hit Haiti harder than perhaps any other country, pushing a population mired in extreme poverty towards starvation and revolt. Hunger burns are called ‘swallowing Clorox,’ a brand of bleach. The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization predicts Haiti’s food import bill will leap eighty percent this year, the fastest in the world. Food riots toppled the prime minister and left five dead in April. Emergency subsidies curbed prices and bought calm, but the cash-strapped government is gradually lifting them. Fresh unrest is expected.”

According to relief workers in Haiti, mass starvation could begin in six to twelve months. Meanwhile, in our own country, traders have been making millions short-selling the declining U.S. stock market while some hedge fund managers made over a billion dollars last year. Their lobbyists have been battling in Congress to stop a move to raise the relatively low rate of taxation on their capital gains to the level of earned income. In other words, while ordinary people starve, Wall Street is doing just fine.

The situation in many developing nations is desperate in part because the International Monetary Fund, under the “Washington consensus,” required them to give up their subsistence agriculture in favor of crops raised for export by agribusiness, while the people who once supported themselves on family farms have had to migrate to urban slums. The Western corporate-owned press calls it “free market reforms.”

The devastation wreaked upon the world has been eloquently described by Dennis Brutus, a former South African activist, now Professor Emeritus at the Department of African Studies, University of Pittsburgh. Brutus writes:

“When I was serving a sentence on Robben Island during the struggle to end apartheid in South Africa, I never suspected that the end of white minority rule in my home country would be the beginning of yet another struggle for justice – this time against the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.

“As architects of the global economy, the World Bank and the IMF have enormous power and shape the conditions of peoples’ lives around the world. That power has been used to create a global economy friendly to the interests of the wealthy and multinational corporations, but devastating to the lives of hundreds of millions of impoverished people.

“I live now in the United States where people so far are relatively unscathed by the reordering of the global economy for the benefit of the very rich. I do not see the squatter settlements, the polluted rivers, the street children, and the elderly beggars that are all too visible in Africa, Asia, or Latin America. I am not saying, of course, that the poor in the U.S. don’t suffer from the ravages of the extremist global economic system – they do. Even the U.S. middle class is beginning to see their comfortable lives threatened by the concentration of wealth in fewer and fewer hands.

“The IMF and World Bank, with the ‘structural adjustment programs’ (SAPs) they impose on indebted countries and their pro-corporate development projects, are the leading edge of oppressive globalization. The policies they have imposed in Africa, Latin America, and Asia have condemned people to stagnation, poverty, and death for twenty years, and those policies are now being adopted in the countries of Europe and North America too.” (Human Quest May/June 2001).

IMF policies require governments to cut food price subsidies, restrict credit to farmers, and divert prime farmland to non-food export crops such as tobacco, coffee, and cotton in order to provide cheap bulk commodities to Western consumers. The victimized nations must then import wheat, rice, and other food products from outside. But prices for these food staples depend on world markets which they cannot influence, much less control.

Speaking of IMF’s directors and economists, Brutus writes:

“Although some of them may have tricked themselves into believing that the neo-liberal economic model they defend is immutable, like a law of nature, most of them probably know that they are perpetrating a fraud of global proportions. Michael Camdessus, who retired after thirteen years as Managing Director of the IMF, told a group of U.S. religious leaders that he was willing to ‘sacrifice a generation’ in order to realize the so-called benefits of the macroeconomic model.”

Camdessus, a Frenchman who headed the IMF for thirteen years, became a legend for the harshness with which he attacked the developing world’s national economies. Obviously his willingness to “sacrifice a generation” reflected the official program of the Western financial oligarchy, but today their targets extend well beyond the hapless victims of the Washington Consensus.

As Brutus indicates, the same policies are being applied to the inhabitants of the once-prosperous nations of Europe and North America as well. But doesn’t it really point to a worldwide regression to a neo-feudalist system where the rich will eventually lord it over a vastly-reduced population of debt-serfs? Is this the essence of the “New World Order” that the international elite have seemingly been planning in earnest since the Club of Rome began talking about overpopulation in the late 1960s?

At least the developing nations are now fighting back, with IMF lending running at a fraction of what it once did and some nations such as Venezuela dropping out altogether. Resistance is also being exhibited to similar policies of the World Trade Organization which likewise seeks to destroy tariffs and other trade barriers that developing countries might wish to use to protect their farmers and workers.

Just last week the “Doha Round” of WTO trade talks collapsed at Geneva when India and China led the way in refusing to alter their tariff and subsidy policies. According to the Center for Economic and Policy Research, the collapse was not surprising, “given the reluctance of India and other developing nations to sacrifice food security measures in the wake of the recent global spike in food prices.”

According to Deborah James, Director of International Programs for the Center for Economic and Policy Research, who had been observing the talks in Geneva, “The tariff cuts demanded of developing countries would have caused massive job loss, and countries would have lost the ability to protect farmers from dumping, further impoverishing millions on the verge of survival.”

NEW WORLD ORDER COUP D’ETÁT?

In looking for the tracks of the New World Order, we should also scrutinize the continuing assertion by the Western media that supply-and-demand is the controlling factor.

For instance, while the price of petroleum has doubled in the past year, there is no solid evidence that increased demand has caused this huge jump nor has the U.S. dollar declined in value to that degree. Within the U.S., gasoline utilization is stagnant. That of China has grown but not enough to cause such an increase, while worldwide more biofuel is coming on-line. And despite the “peak oil” scare, there are no obvious shortages in what is in the pipeline and ready to be refined and utilized today. This has led to surmisals that the price increases reflect activity in the commodities futures markets.

Despite the uncertainty, the Washington Post commenced a major week-long series on July 27 by declaring with absolute certainty that “cheap gas is gone forever.” So what does the Post know that we don’t? In fact none of the factors cited by the Post, including growth of the Chinese economy, can account for the aforesaid doubling of crude oil prices within a twelve-month window. By the Post’s own figures, world petroleum utilization has increased by only twenty-five percent in the last fifteen years. (Washington Post, July 27, 2008)

Further, in spite of its certainty that it knew the causes of the problem and that higher prices are here to stay, only two months earlier, on May 27, the Post ran a lengthy article entitled, “Skyrocketing Oil Prices Stump Experts.” Toward the end came this interesting statement: “’We see many of the essential ingredients for a classic asset bubble,’ said Edward Morse, chief energy economist at Lehman Brothers. Morse estimated that $90 billion has flowed into the biggest commodity indices in just more than two years, and more money has flowed into other exchanges, pushing up prices.”

So is oil is being used as a hedge by investors to protect their wealth at a time of uncertainty? Are the richest of the rich competing with each other to park their cash? It is known that among these investors are the oil companies themselves. Also, it is known that such commodity investments are often heavily leveraged by bank loans, often up to ninety-seven percent of investors’ capital. So the banks are in on it too.

But this type of trading seems to be more than just a hedge. Its content is political. Ethically, it is deeply anti-human, even criminal, because higher fuel prices make everything else cost more in a world where fuel is needed for all that is produced or sold. In fact it seems more like an assault by the rich on every living human being in the world, an assault that governments, under the hypnotism of neo-liberal free market fundamentalism á la Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan, are unable or unwilling to fight.

And who, other than the oil companies, are these big investors?

On June 19, 2008, David Bario of The American Law Daily reported on an interview with Philip McBride Johnson, a former CFTC chairman under President Reagan. Johnson now heads Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom’s exchange-traded derivatives practice. He is not exactly a wild-eyed conspiracy theorist.

Regarding activity in the petroleum futures market, Johnson said:

“The CFTC’s economists are saying that supply and demand seem to be driving this. But we have clients in the business that have experienced these markets for many, many years, and what I’m hearing from them is that they don’t see any change in the fundamentals of supply and demand.”

Bario asked, “Is it a matter of institutional investors seeking shelter from the subprime crisis and the credit crunch?” Johnson replied:

“I don’t know. But I do know that speculators as a class do not agree on anything, and yet there is almost unanimity of opinion these days — and the money to make the opinions matter. The fact that prices have been relentlessly trending up suggests a new type of market participant [with] a mentality that is traditionally more in line with investing in securities than trading in commodities. If enough of these wealthy people, or funds, or other entities with a lot of capital decide to flip out of securities for a little while and go into commodities, and they’re all looking for something that is going up, and you get enough billions of dollars thinking that way, then their wish comes true.”

So again, who exactly are these “wealthy people, or funds, or other entities” that may be manipulating the market of the world’s most important substance? Surely government regulators must know. Aren’t they able to trace market activity to the players involved?

The answer, Johnson said, is no, they can’t:

“The situation now is that the CFTC is sitting there looking at one screen, one piece of the picture, which is whatever is happening on the exchanges. Meanwhile, an increasing volume in dollars is taking place in the form of over-the-counter activity where no one can see it… there is still a blind spot with respect to the true over-the-counter activity that is going on, which represents billions and billions of dollars.”

This trading in what the industry calls “dark pools” amounts to a third of all commodities activity, easily enough for the manipulators to remain hidden. It takes place outside the regular commodities exchanges, where trading activity is relatively transparent. And it applies not only to trading in petroleum futures but also food crops and other vital commodities.

And who is it that has allowed this secret trading to take place? Johnson:

“In 2000 Congress decided that there were certain kinds of high-end investors that were big enough and smart enough that they shouldn’t be constrained to do all their business on the exchanges.”

The United States Congress has constitutional responsibility to regulate interstate commerce in order to secure “the general welfare.” It is Congress that has enabled the richest of the rich to work behind the scenes in U.S. markets in exerting this stranglehold over whether much of the world’s population will live in relative prosperity or poverty, or, in countries like Haiti, even live or die.

Are we seeing the totalitarian dictatorship of the world’s financial elite being rolled out, with petroleum and food prices the primary weapon of a final coup d’etát against every national government on earth and their citizens? And if we knew who these “high-end investors” were, and who controlled them, wouldn’t we then understand who is in charge of the New World Order and for whom it really functions?

If we are wrong in deducing such a plot, there is an easy way for those under suspicion to disprove it. Those who are “big enough and smart enough” to be making so much money surely can live handsomely without these additional profits. Let them come forth, identify themselves, and donate their gains for worthwhile projects to benefit humanity.

Absent such a gesture, let them stand indicted.

UNSETTLING TIMES

Meanwhile, here in Vermont, home to a small but popular movement for the state to secede from the U.S., the local news reflects the unsettling times.

The Rutland Herald reports that the Vermont Milk Company, founded in 2006 with the goal of paying local dairy farmers more for their milk than would big out-of-state food corporations, is facing “huge increases” in the costs of fuel and credit and is laying off employees. The article notes that it takes the company 100 gallons of heating oil to make a single batch of ice cream.

On the state level, the government in Montpelier must cut $32 million from the fiscal year budget that began July 1. The Herald notes that, “Public safety and preparedness agencies like the Vermont State Police, Corrections, the National Guard, and Veterans Affairs will not be cut. Neither will debt service, which the state must pay.” Layoffs of state employees in other program areas will be considered.

One relatively inexpensive activity that will continue will be the Vermont “Wood Warms” program, “aimed at getting split cord wood into the sheds of low- and moderate-income Vermonters.” Jonathan Wood, commissioner of the Vermont Department of Forests, Parks, and Recreation is quoted as saying: “We used to be more reliant on our backyards and forests for fuel. I think we have to head back there in the future. We’re kind of going forward into the past.”

The classified section contains “Help Wanted” listings for a local economy that is struggling but still has a few openings for nurses, truck drivers, cooks, carpenters, and an occasional job as a teacher or administrator. But there is only one listing for industrial work, placed by a filament extrusion company.

But it’s oil that rules the world. On the Herald’s business page is an Associated Press report that the “Exxon-Mobil Corp. reported second quarter earnings of $11.68 billion Thursday, the biggest profit from operations ever by any U.S, corporation.”

Unfortunately, “the results were well short of Wall Street expectations.” Even with record profits the devils of the financial world were not satisfied, as Exxon-Mobil’s stock “slumped three percent.”
