ELITE COUP

[This piece was written following the dismissal of the European Commission (openly being called now the 'cabinet' of Europe) on the ides of March (15th of March) 1999.  The dismissal was a result of a vote of no confidence passed by the European Parliament.]

Compare the European Commission website http://www.europa.eu.int/comm/commissioners/index_en.htm

3.9.99, revised 2.3.2000

The 'global elite' have performed yet another coup. They have so far had many of their people elected to high office - Bill Clinton, Lionel Jospin, Tony Blair, as well as Jacques Santer, Wim Duisenberg (now head of the European Central Bank), and many others.

Chair of the Commission Romano Prodi was a Steering Committee Member of the Bilderberg Group in the 80s - I have a copy of their booklet from 1982, which incidentally also shows that Wim Duisenberg was the then Treasurer. What is noticeable that Prodi has limited the declarations of his Commissioners to 10 years, something not done in the previous Commission, and so has allowed himself not to declare this former highly sensitive role.

Since the head man is a member of the elite, it should be no surprise that he has nominated 7 other elite members (and incidentally 4 others suspected of involvement in fraud!). These 7 are:

  1. As result of Parliamentary questions from Patricia McKenna, Irish Green MEP, Mario Monti has now formally declared that he was a former Steering Committee member of Bilderberg ('83-'93) and implies that he is also a former Executive Committee member of the Trilateral Commission, as well as council of the Aspen Institute. However, he was still present until recently on the Trilateral homepage - http://www.trilateral.org/memb.htm, and was in both the '92 and '98 membership lists; he said in an European Parliamentary answer that he was a member of the Executive committee of the Trilateral Commission (Europe), from 1988 to 1997, which is not what he was asked about.
  2. Erikki Liikanen attended Bilderberg last June in Sintra, Portugal, according to the the official press list circulated, and reported in Portuguese newspaper, The News Weekly (link out of date - http://the-news.net/archives/bilburglist05-6.htm, but the list is at: http://www.bilderberg.org/1999.htm)
  3. According to his declaration, Frits Bolkestein is to remain a Member of the Royal Institute of International Affairs (or Chatham House, in London), originally established by Cecil Rhodes, and responsible for establishing the Council on Foreign Relations in the USA (the other major elite group which includes all senior political and administrative figures in the USA, also including the President). He does not mention his participation in the Bilderberg Group in Toronto in 1996, the first time where their list was widely circulated, and it can be found at http://www.bilderberg.org/bildlist.htm
  4. Pedro Solbes Mira declares his membership of the Trilateral Commission since 1996 (quote: "I.1.2 Posts currently held Member of the Spanish section of the Trilateral Commission (since 1996)", but fails to mention that he is on the Steering Committee, (their homepage doesn't mention that he is a Commissioner either: "Pedro Solbes, Member of the Spanish Parliament; former Minister of Finance and of Agriculture, Madrid", or his participation in Bilderberg last year. He is apparently scheduled to go to the June Swiss meeting this year.
  5. Gunther Verheugen doesn't mention his participation in Bilderberg in 1995 in Bürgenstock, Switzerland (see http://www.bilderberg.org.cocktail.htm)
  6. Chris Patten says that while he was Governor of Hong Kong he had many memberships of charitable organisations, but we cannot regard his membership of the Trilateral Commission in this way (he is on their official list from March '98), and he doesn't list it as a current membership either.
  7. Finally, Antonio Vitorino does not declare that he attended Bilderberg in 1996 (see again http://www.bilderberg.org/bildlist.htm).

Bilderberg claims to have no formal membership as such, but has a list of 120 or so invitees which changes from year to year, reflecting a sort of changing membership. It has a core group, reflected in the Steering Committee.

Either way, in the spirit of openness, and also the written answers from Commissioners like Liikanen (http://www.europarl.eu.int/dg2/hearings/pdf/com/answer/liikanen/en/default.pdf), proposing the declaration of all political roles (in answer to a Green question), I would have thought these rather important roles should be mentioned. (see the Commissioners declarations at http://europa.eu.int/comm/commissioners/interests/index_en.htm)


The trail runs cold - investigators wanted

Spotlight seem to be the only researchers in the world to be able to discover the location and time of Bilderberg meetings before the event. http://www.spotlight.org

Well, after four years of chasing Bilderbergers around I've finally decided to drop it. Other people from the left are beginning to cover it now, eg. http://www.jonronson.com

You can make whatever you want of the eerie Bilderberger phenomenon, spiritual or secular and do please let me know. But for me it's closely tied up with Biblical prophecy. There is clearly something very wrong with the world when the way it's going bears no relation to the way ordinary people want it to go and yet no-one seems able to do much to stop it. Could Genetic Engineering be the final straw? Our right to grow food and even to reproduce is coming to an end. "Why, I can see Mr. Blair and the rest but who's controlling them? I must wipe my eyes, I can't see who's really in charge!" Hopefully, with this resource, the power elite apex is not quite so invisible as it used to be.

If you fear God you don't then go fearing the Bilderbergers too. (I don't mean the false mish-mash new age 'god', which doesn't mind if we break Gods laws. I mean Yahweh, God of the Hebrews and Old and New Testaments in The Bible) It's because there are better ways to spend my time, doing more positive things like my End Times page. If you know more let me know.

When the tribulation comes, whether in a five days time or fifty years, you can be sure there'll be spiritual illusions prepared to trap even the most well-meaning. They'll probably try to convince people the messiah predicted by Moses and many others in the Old Testament is not Jesus but... their guy!

That's why there is a deliberate lack of spiritual direction and morality in our collective culture now, so we'll bolt down the spiritual poison thankfully when it's offered to us! Don't just read some zany internet site, get clued up now! Read what Jesus said! What about a joining together of all the main world religions? No-thank-you-very-much Mr. Pope or Mr Dali Llama and other 'representatives of God' if you try this we'll know you're from the dark side.

Truth is all that matters to God and if fear's in the way of truth it's just gotta go.

Please read this final short analysis for 2001. It is the most revealing piece to date on the objectives of Bilderberg (and the Trilateral Commission) - control of the cabinet government of Europe. No less. By-bye democracy. Hello New World Order. Let's make sure they don't get away with it. Don't say no-one warned you.

The PEPIS email service will still operate so please conduct your own discrete investigations and post results to tony@gaia.org I will post the 2001 venue up here on this page if I get hold of it.

thanks

Tony

Mr. Gosling,

I'm not certain, but I think you are referring to Renata Adler's forthcoming book on the Bilderberg conferences. If that is the case, the book is currently scheduled for publication in June 2002 and it is therefore significantly premature for Ms. Adler to give interviews.

Private Capacity

by Renata Adler

The first serious study of the ultra-secretive Bilderberg Conferences and their role in the modern world. In 1954, a group of leaders of the Western World held a secret meeting in Holland that would lead to the formation of the Bilderberg group. That meeting included officials from the United States and from two countries, Germany and Italy, which were defeated in World War II, and which were participating for the first time on an equal basis with other European powers. Since that first meeting Bilderberg has included presidents, Prime Ministers, bankers, princes, tycoons, labor leaders, secretaries of state, NATO commanders, ambassadors, and others whose occupations are not widely known. Media barons and journalists are often invited. But only if they agree to keep secret who was there and what was said. Bilderberg has been characterized as an elite think tank or an International Establishment, an elaborate social and business network, or a conspiracy that actually runs the world.

This book addresses, for the first time, the true history of the organization, its participants and effects. With a cache of Bilderberg archives, secretly turned over to the author by a few senior leaders of the Bilderberg, the book describes the organization, and discusses who has been involved and when. It shows connections that exist and connections that--despite rumor, and a virtual obsession of the extreme left and right--do not. It explains how Bilderberg has changed, and in what ways it may have changed the world. The author also analyzes questions raised by clubs, cabals, exclusive and secret or not-secret groups of every sort.

'Imagine yourselves to be dictators of Europe'

The Single Market programme was the 1980's relaunch of the economic and ultimately political integration of Europe. Father of the EU, Jean Monnet, had always felt it crucial to rein back big business. The success of the single market programme turned this policy on its head. The relaunch document (see below) was prepared by Philips Industries in Holland and researched by unnamed Philips staff. The staff were told to "imagine yourselves to be dictators of Europe."

Few realise how pivotal the 2001 Bilderberg chairman, Viscount Etienne Davignon, was in this process. As European Commissioner for Industry and the Internal Market from 1977 to 1980 he looked for ways to put big business in the driving seat of European policy. In 1985, as Industry Commissioner, he challenged Pehr Gyllenhammar, CEO of Volvo,  (also administrator of United Technologies, Vice President of the Aspen Institute and one of the five partners of Kissinger Associates) to organise a group of the top European businessmen to lobby the Commission. Davignon argued that the Commission would be obliged to respond to the demands of some of the largest European industrialists. The Gyllenhammar group was to become the highly influential European Round Table of Industrialists or ERT.

Repackaging the message: The Dekker Paper

On January 11, 1985, in Brussels, Wisse Dekker, CEO of Phillips, unveiled a plan, "Europe 1990", before an audience of 500 people including many of the newly appointed EC commissioners. The plan laid out in precise terms the steps needed in four key areas - trade facilitation (elimination of border formalities), opening up of public procurement markets, harmonization of technical standards, and fiscal harmonization (elimination of the fiscal VAT frontiers) -- to open up a European Market in five years. For the first time a plan was produced which identified some 50 measures needed to eliminate non-tariff barriers to trade and to relaunch the European Market. The Dekker paper was revolutionary -- not only because it was proposed by the head of a major multinational, but because it produced what had escaped national and European policymakers -- a simple plan for a unified market.

The Dekker paper was an internal Philips project led by Dekker's government affairs representative in Brussels, Coen Ramaer. It was the result of the company's growing dissatisfaction with the inability of government officials -- national or EC -- to produce a concrete proposal for a European market. While Mitterrand was promoting an industrial initiative, there were no specifics to the French President's plan. Moreover, when the Commission did produce a comprehensive package of proposals in late 1984, there was no outpouring of support for the initiative. The Commission document developed by Commissioner Narjes listed hundreds of pre-existing pieces of legislation -- ranging from standardisation to social actions to environmental issues -- deemed necessary for the creation of an internal market. Business leaders, while pleased that a package was produced, found the Commission package "unwieldy" and lacking "a precise time-table." Moreover, there was no strategy to ensure its implementation and no rationale for industrial growth. It became apparent to the heads of multinationals that industry needed to produce its own concrete program.

With Dekker's support, Ramaer assembled four Philips experts who had long dealt with the four key areas later outlined in the Dekker speech. As Ramaer explains, he instructed the men to:

"imagine yourselves to be dictators of Europe and that you have decided that the job must be done in five years. And they [the experts] started out "but this is impossible! Be realistic!" And I told them that I couldn't care less if we were realistic or not.

Once they had picked up this idea, they found it fascinating. And they discovered that it could be done -- given the political will, of course." [Interview, September 24th 1992]

Some of the experts set up informal meetings with their counterparts in the Commission to discuss the project and to hammer out key problems. Dekker stressed to Ramaer that the proposals had to be complete -- he did not want the outcome to be simply another speech on the necessity of European integration.

"Europe 1990" was not simply another speech. In addition to introducing a precise agenda, the paper introduced a number of new conceptualisations of what a unified European market might entail. In the trade facilitation area, for example, the "ultimate goal" of the plan was to create "frontiers without formalities for goods traffic and the replacement of paper documents by data transmission via a telecommunications network used by traders, transporters, banks and statistical and tax authorities..." Of course, to implement this strategy, member states would also be required to allow for the development of a trans-European telecommunications network. The paper left little doubt of the importance of creating a united European market. As Dekker noted in his introduction: "The survival of Europe is in fact at stake."

When the "Europe 1990" plan was presented, it was not for Brussels' consumption alone. Dekker sent the plan, along with a letter, to the heads of government and state of the European Community. One letter went to The Rt Hon Margaret Thatcher, January 7th 1985, from Dr. Wisse Dekker. The letter opens as follows "Europe's industries - both large and small - will have little future if the common market is not created as intended by the Treaties of Rome. This we all know..." Dekker concludes by submitting "these proposals for the consideration of you and your government, hoping that you will promote the action necessary to get Europe out of the deadlock in which it has been for a number of years. You will agree that this is an urgent matter. There is little time left to correct the consequences of a lack of dynamism in the past decade.[from footnote - Margaret Thatcher refused to meet with ERT who were promoting 'Europe 2000'.]


The Prisoner, 1967- Quote from 'The Chimes of Big Ben':

No.2: "It doesn't matter which side runs the Village."

No.6: "It's run by one side, or the other?"

No.2: "Oh, certainly. But both sides are becoming identical. What in fact has been created - an international community. The perfect blueprint for world order. When the sides facing each other suddenly realize that they are looking into a mirror, they will see that this is the pattern for the future."

If this cannot be accomplished, sabotage of those who resist is arranged in the following ways.

...AND FINALLY

Grattan and I thoroughly recommend this book 'The Grand Chessboard: American Primacy and its Geostrategic Imperatives' by Zbigniew Brzezinski - just get on and read it! You won't be too surprised to hear that the chessboard is in fact the Eurasian continent! This is for the UK.
