A lot of wack rumors have sprung up around what is happening at the Bilderberg Summit every year. I don’t put a lot of stock in a lot of those rumors; I don’t think, for instance, that they meet to divide up the slaves, and I don’t think that they meet to form instruction sheets for the world’s politicians.

But I don’t know exactly what it is they do there, and nobody else who doesn’t get an invite does.

This year’s summit is supposed to be about “social networking and security,” but a lot of the names in attendance suggest that there are other things afoot. Kissinger, Rockefeller, CEOs of places like Goldman-Sachs. The Who’s-Who of the Plutocracy. I cannot imagine that these people are meeting to influence Governments, since they own quite a few of them. I’d guess that they are meeting to cement their hegemony over the riches of the world. While I don’t know what form that hegemony ultimately takes, I can safely assume that it is a form that would be unpalatable to the great mass of people. Otherwise, they’d release minutes of their meetings. They’d invite the press in. They’d let politicians in from countries that their policies will affect (as it is, any politician stupid enough to try to crash a Bilderberg Summit gets his ass beat by the local security forces. It’s happened more than once.)

In this world of ours, where right-wing scum constantly cry about SECURITY!!!, there is never a peep about these meetings. And that’s strange, because a bunch of disconnected, loaded people meeting in secret to formulate financial policy for the whole world are a hell of a lot more dangerous to us than any thousand Osamas will ever be. It seems to me that if we are ever going to weaken the Plutocracy, we must first give a damn about what they are up to. But we waste so much time on the Ten Commandments and birth certificates that these elites can go right on, doing what I suspect they’ve been doing for many years now-as in, dismantling the future for billions of people in the service of a few billionaires.

Do ya think we might get off “Jersey Shore” long enough to care?

Nobel Economist Michael Spence Says Globalism Is Costly For Americans

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts | Global Research | May 31, 2011

These are discouraging times, but once in a blue moon a bit of hope appears. I am pleased to report on the bit of hope delivered in March of 2011 by Michael Spence, a Nobel prize-winning economist, assisted by Sandile Hlatshwayo, a researcher at New York University. The two economists have taken a careful empirical look at jobs offshoring and concluded that it has ruined the income and employment prospects for most Americans.

To add to the amazement, their research report, “The Evolving Structure of the American Economy and the Employment Challenge,” was published by the very establishment Council on Foreign Relations. http://www.cfr.org/industrial-policy/evolving-structure-american-economy-employment-challenge/p24366

Only two days after the WSJ published Siobhan Gorman’s exclusive story of the Pentagon classifying cyber attacks by foreign nations as acts of war, Google blames China for involvement in a cyber-spying campaign targeting the Google e-mail accounts of top US officials, military personnel and journalists–claims which, according to the BBC, China rejects.

Here’s Op Ed News director, Rob Kall’s take on take subject, written before the Google story hit the news:

Get Ready for Digital False Flag Attacks

The US has a history of false flag attacks being used as excuses to start wars. The problem is, to be effective, false flag attacks require bombs, blood, death…

Now, the Wall Street Journal reports in a top headline, front page article, Cyber Combat: Act of War, that the US is working on developing a policy that defines cyber attacks– hacks, computer sabotage– which cause damage or death, including damage to our economy, as acts of war.

Hillary said it to AIPAC in 2008 and Obama agreed. He is still true to his word today in spite of Netanyahu’s overbearing attitude. Was anything mentioned about the African Mercenaries that Global CST sent to Gaddafi’s aid? No. Did the US demand that Israeli-funded African Mercenaries be granted Immunity from War Crimes! Yes,
Netanyahu has been very quiet about the whole Libyan affair untill his confrontation with Obama about holding to the 1967 borders. There can be no doubt that diplomacy is not in his vocabulary, even in these extraordinary times.

Morocco Joins Middle East Protests: Protesters Demand New Constitution, Economic Reforms

The Huffington Post/AP First Posted: 02/20/11 02:17 PM Updated: 02/20/11 02:17 PM

(SCROLL DOWN FOR LIVE UPDATES)

RABAT, Morocco (AP) — Thousands of people marched in cities across Morocco on Sunday, demanding a new constitution to bring more democracy in the North African kingdom amid the wave of Arab world upheaval.

Demonstrators shouted slogans calling for economic opportunity, educational reform, better health services and help in coping with rising living costs during a march on central Hassan II Avenue in the capital, Rabat.

The day of demonstration was Morocco’s entree into the series of protests that have swept up North Africa and the wider Arab world after popular uprisings brought down longtime autocrats in Tunisia and Egypt.

The main target of Sunday’s rallies was parliament, where many Moroccans fear their voices are not heard. Still, the protests are likely to pressure King Mohammed VI, who has been seen as a reformer compared to his iron-fisted father, Hassan II, and who still holds absolute authority.

Twenty-one American troops have been killed in Afghanistan since Friday in one of the bloodiest periods of the summer.

Afghanistan bomb attacks kill twenty-one US soldiers in 48 hours

A series of bomb attacks have badly hit US troops in eastern and southern Afghanistan in the past 48 hours.

The death toll among in the Nato-led coalition has reached 484 this year and is predicted to far surpass 2009’s total of 521.

Deaths have risen consistently each year since 2001. Afghan police and civilians have suffered far higher casualties.

The coalition blames the rise in troop deaths partly on the influx of reinforcements, which is allowing commanders to target previously untouched insurgent safe havens where rebels are mounting stiff resistance.

Gen David Petraeus, senior US and Nato commander in the country, warned last week fighting would “get harder before it gets easier”.

In two of the most deadly recent incidents, three Americans died in eastern Afghanistan on one bomb attack on Tuesday. Five died in a single bomb attack in the south on Monday.

Military spokesmen would not say if the bombs hit vehicles or foot patrols.

Homemade bombs using old shells or homemade explosives and hidden in roads, tracks, walls, streams and buildings have become the Taliban’s favoured weapon.

Their use has sparked an arms race with foreign troops evolving tactics, or relying on more heavily armed vehicles and mine detectors to try and avoid them.

Yeh right Gland, I mean Glenn, like we haven’t seen the corruption brought on by the homeland security act and the presidential dirextives of the George Duhbya Bu$h administration. We haven’t noticed that there are at least 6 (six) lobbyists for every congressman. Nor have we noticed that whatever AIPAC wants Aipac gets. Nor that 75% of our congressmen and representatives have signed the letter to President Obama asking for his support of Israel on the barge incident, the war crimes in Gaza,  the war crimes in Lebanon, the killing of innocent civilions in both Afghanistan and Pakistan, and a myriad of other war crimes. We just haven’t noticed because there is way more going on than that.

Your sincerety is surpassed only by your love for the corporate government, Glenn, which is well displayed by your alliance with Dick’s Army aka Freedom Works. If you think that being a WASP, White Anglo Saxon Protostant, equates with morality then, by all means, take up a place on the pulpit of AIPAC with the Reverend John Hagee.

VANUNU

The Guardian

Jo Adetunji guardian.co.uk, Sunday 8 August 2010

Mordechai Vanunu, the Israeli whistleblower who spent 18 years in jail for exposing Israel’s nuclear capabilities  was released today after completing a further three-month sentence.

Vanunu, 56, a former technician at a secret nuclear plant near the desert town of Dimona, was convicted after handing over details of Israel’s nuclear arsenal to a British newspaper in 1986.

The revelations led to the belief that Israel held a sizeable nuclear arsenal – a claim Israel has neither confirmed nor denied under its policy of “ambiguity”.

Vanunu served much of his 18-year sentence in solitary confinement.

His latest three-month sentence came after the Moroccan-born whistleblower was convicted of holding unauthorised meetings with foreigners – banned under the conditions of his release – including journalists and his Norwegian girlfriend in 2007.

Since his release in 2004 Vanunu’s movements have been subject to strict conditions, including a ban on leaving Israel, but it is not the first time that Vanunu has been arrested and imprisoned for breaking them. Despite the length of time Vanunu has spent in prison, Israeli security agencies claim he still holds information which could threaten national security.

After his release, Vanunu said: “All this harassing me and arresting me again and again is Israel’s problem, not my problem.”
