[Note: At the recent Democratic Convention, Bill Clinton said people incorrectly were warned in 1992 not to vote for him because of his inexperience in foreign affairs, as though Barack Obama would be just as “successful” though inexperienced. Well, look at the Clinton “successes” like allowing Al Qaeda to bomb the World Trade Center in 1993; the “success” in Somalia; and the terrorists bombings of the U.S. barracks in Khobar, (Saudi Arabia), the two embassies in Africa, and the U.S.S. Cole; etc. Trying to enlist support for his own campaign, Obama said, “The American people aren’t stupid…”, but didn’t the American people elect Congress which is held in even lower esteem than the president? Hillary Clinton asked all her supporters to come to the convention to be recognized for their effort, but then she cut a deal with Obama that didn’t allow any of her delegates after the State of New York (e.g., North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Oregon, Texas, Virginia, Washington, etc.) to vote for her! Democrat women don’t like being “dissed” by their own Party or Hillary, so this could be used by Gov. Sarah Palin (John McCain’s running mate) in an appeal for women’s votes. If McCain wins and serves only one term, or if he resigns after only three and a half years, Palin could be the first woman president. Although she’s prolife, pro-Second Amendment rights, and has more executive experience than Obama and Biden combined, she like McCain refers to serving “the common good.” This is a Communitarian view like that of the current President Bush and church growth leader Rick Warren, both agents of the power elite. Also, regarding Palin’s unmarried pregnant teenage daughter, did Palin teach her daughter that the HOLY BIBLE (1 Corinthians 6:9) clearly states that fornicators will go to Hell?
This is something all parents should teach their children. And Palin’s answer to her daughter’s pregnancy is that she’s going to marry the baby’s father. But would you want your daughter to vow before God to be married until death to a boy who on his own MY SPACE page says “I’m a f---ing redneck” and “I don’t want kids”? Referring to Sarah Palin’s executive experience being a governor compared favorably to Barack Obama being only a community organizer, top Democrat strategist Donna Brazille (who directed Al Gore’s 2000 campaign) and others recently retorted Jesus was a “community organizer” and Pontius Pilate was a governor. Now if Democrats wanted to create a favorable image of a community organizer compared to an unfavorable image of a governor, they could have done that without referring to a specific governor who had a specific “community organizer” (the Messiah) violently killed. However, they chose this specific comparison, and all Americans should ask themselves why any Democrats would do that!]
The movie BROTHERHOOD OF THE ROSE described how intelligence agencies, not national governments, actually worked together to control the world. In reality, the power elite (PE), not national governments, control the world using threats to coerce compliance with their will. Most people view world events in terms of the U.S. or NATO versus Russia or some other adversarial combination. However, the PE operates internationally above any nation and is comprised of individuals from the U.S., Europe, Russia, China, etc. who have no national loyalties, but rather are committed to their own power and control. At any given time, they may employ the military of any country to create a “threatening” situation in order to coerce compliance with their objectives. An economic threat may also be used, as Israel is militarily threatened by Iran, and the E.U. (represented by Javier Solana) probably threatened Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert with fewer investments and loans if Israel didn’t stop its final retaliation against Hezbollah in Lebanon. Similarly, the U.S. doesn’t have a free hand against Communist China because the Chinese own a lot of our debt. The U.S. also can’t simply withdraw from the global economy (which was created by the PE) because that would be disastrous economically (the stock market and people’s 401Ks would crash because of heavy investments overseas). Sucking China into the global economy is likewise a goal of the PE, because once the Chinese economy is integrated with others, they can be threatened with instability as well if they fail to comply with the PE’s wishes.
The threat against the West in general has been from Communism, as Lincoln Bloomfield’s report to Secretary of State Dean Rusk (Rhodes Scholar) indicated that the West might lose whatever incentive it has for world government (which is the PE’s ultimate goal) if the Communist dynamic were greatly abated. But globally, threats can be non-Communist as well, as India feels threatened by Pakistan and vice versa (watch Kashmir in the future).
Oil is a major component of the PE’s threat mechanism. Oil-rich countries like Venezuela have felt militarily threatened by Colombian incursion, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia militarily were threatened by Iraq’s Saddam Hussein, and Libya has been bombed by the U.S.
Historically, Iran’s democratically elected leader was overthrown by revolution in the early 1950s because he nationalized the nation’s oil supply. The PE instigated the revolution which put into power the puppet Shah of Iran with the blessing of Ayatollah Kashani. When the Shah was no longer useful, a revolution instituted by the PE replaced him with Ayatollah Khomeini (mentored by Kashani). Today regarding its oil and gas, Iran seeks military and economic allies in Russia and China because it feels threatened by the U.S. and Israel.
Concerning Afghanistan, PE agent Zbigniew Brzezinski lured the Soviets there in the late 1970s as part of a PE plan regarding Caspian oil and gas. American forces conducted maneuvers in Kazakhstan in 1995, two years before Brzezinski’s THE GRAND CHESSBOARD (1997) was published describing the new “Great Game” for energy supplies in that region. The Soviet puppet in Afghanistan was replaced by the Taliban, and Al Qaeda was originally supported by the U.S. The Taliban balked at complying with the PE’s wishes regarding a pipeline from the Caspian region, thus resulting in a threat by the U.S. to which the Taliban’s ally, Al Qaeda, responded on 9/11/2001. The attack by Al Qaeda also served as part of an unending terrorist threat that prompted the American people to give up some of their liberties (another PE goal) in the Patriot and Homeland Security Acts. The attack also presented the “truly massive and widely perceived direct external threat” that Brzezinski said in his book was necessary “to fashion a consensus on foreign policy issues,” such as attacking Afghanistan to achieve the PE’s oil and gas pipelines from the Caspian region. This was achieved by installing a compliant puppet, Karzai, as head of the new Afghan government.
In Yugoslavia, the situation was similar, as Slobodan Milosevic was standing in the way of a trade route linking the European Union with the planned Mediterranean Union (including Arab nations and Israel). He was also standing in the way of a new pipeline planned from Baku (Azerbaijan) on the Caspian Sea, then across the Black Sea through Kosovo down through Albania to the Adriatic Sea where it could be shipped to the West and around the world. Thus, the PE’s “spontaneous” revolution for independence in Kosovo, to which Milosovic reacted when CIA-trained Kosovo Liberation Army (KLA) members (also supported by Al Qaeda) assassinated Serbian police, mayors, etc. This gave NATO (headed militarily by Rhodes Scholar Gen. Wesley Clark and politically by Javier Solana, a product of Rhodes Scholars Bill Clinton, Strobe Talbott, and Richard Gardner the “humanitarian crisis’ it needed to attack Milosevic, killing a lot of innocent civilians as well.
Another pipeline from Baku (Azerbaijan) through Georgia and then Turkey to the Mediterranean Sea also resulted in another “spontaneous” revolution for independence by South Ossetia within Georgia. This time, the “spontaneous” revolutionaries were allied with Russia. This gave the U.S.-funded and trained Georgians the threat they needed to react militarily, killing about 2000 South Ossetian civilians and sending another 40,000 refugees into Russia. This, in turn, gave the Russians the threat they needed to crush the Georgians militarily. In June 2008, long before military action, PE agent Brzezinski warned of “cases of possible threats by Russia, directed at Georgia with the intention of taking control over the Baku-Ceyhan pipeline.” PE agent Vladimir Putin could count on NATO’s non-response because he could easily once again cut off Germany’s, Poland’s, etc. natural gas pipeline from Russia.
The PE doesn’t want any nation or group of nations to be too strong or independent. This is why during and after WWII, the Soviets were given nuclear weapons material by FDR advisor Harry Hopkins, and Communist Chinese were brought to power by Gen. George Marshall, both nations then serving as threats to the U.S. This is why an independent Iran in the early 1950s had to be undermined. It’s why the U.S. had to not win in Korea and lose in Vietnam, and why the Soviets had to lose in Afghanistan. It’s why the U.S. had to be threatened by terrorists, why Saddam Hussein had to be ousted when he didn’t succumb to the will of “the international community,” and why Slobodan Milosevic had to be removed from power for the same reason (the examples of Hussein and Milosevic serve to coerce other potentially independent leaders into compliance with the PE’s will). And it’s why NATO’s expansion eastward toward Georgia was resisted by Russia, resulting in the current (and probably lasting) stalemate there.
In case you doubt the goal is a stalemate in Georgia, read carefully what PE agent Brzezinski wrote in his THE GRAND CHESSBOARD relevant to Caspian oil, gas and minerals. After referring several times to “ruling national elites,” he explained “that America’s primary interest is to help ensure that no single power comes to control this geopolitical space (Eurasia) and that the global community has unhindered financial and economic access to it.” Now one would think that Brzezinski as a former American national security advisor (and current Obama advisor) would like it if the U.S. (a “single power”) controlled this geopolitical space, but that’s not what he said. Rather, he emphasized “no single power” should control it. Remember that Brzezinski was David Rockefeller’s first director of the Trilateral Commission, and Rockefeller in his MEMOIRS (2002) acknowledged about himself that he is “part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States… conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world.”
As long as no nation or group of nations becomes too strong or independent, the PE will maintain its power and control. Military and economic (cutoff of energy supplies) threats keep nations compliant with the will of the PE, which seeks to control the activities of nations and move them inexorably into regional economic unions to be linked ultimately into a World Socialist Government under the PE’s control. In order that Americans accept this World Socialist Government, the PE increasingly has to move the U.S. toward Socialism. This is being done via economic crises such as the recent federal takeover of Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and American International Group (AIG). Government takeover of such major financial institutions is definitely a move toward classical economic Socialism. Nouriel Roubini, professor of Economics and International Business at New York University, has suggested we may enter a global recession, and banks may have to be nationalized – another step toward Socialism and fulfillment of the PE’s plan. Also, the announcement on September 19, 2008 that the federal government is going to bailout Wall Street means that the taxpayer will pick up the tab for all that debt. This will mean inflation (an indirect form of taxation) and a devaluing of the dollar (another part of the PE’s plan to institute regional currencies like the Amero).
As I’ve written before, the PE has not only economic and political goals, but religious as well. They have a “theology of power,” and facilitating this is “The Family,” a somewhat secretive organization which began in the 1930s with definite Fascist leanings. Over the decades, they have characterized even some brutal dictators as “men of God.” The dictators respond favorably because The Family emphasizes to them (and everyone else) Romans 13:1 which states: “…For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God.” In the U.S., although invitations to the annual National Prayer Breakfast appear to come from the White House, it is actually organized (since 1953) by The Family and often has non-Christian speakers. Over the decades, powerful Republicans and Democrats have been associated with The Family. And Jeff Sharlet, author of THE FAMILY (2008), claims Hillary Clinton is considered a “friend” of this organization, which has formed a network of powerful leaders around the world. The PE’s goal is global, economic, political and religious power and control, which they use toward achieving a World Socialist Government and a One-World Religion.
