Bilderberg group meeting: What actually happens at the world’s most secretive gathering of global elites, and who is attending?

The list of the rich and powerful attending this year’s Bilderberg Conference has been released – it includes bankers, prime ministers and former heads of the CIA and MI6

No minutes will be taken. No reporters will be allowed in. There will be no opening press conference, no closing statement, and participants will be asked not to quote each other.

Welcome to the 64th Bilderberg Conference.

Rich and powerful bankers, prime ministers and former heads of the CIA and MI6 are about to join other members of the global elite for arguably the world’s most high-powered but secretive annual meeting which this year is being held in Dresden.

What is the Bilderberg Group?

By their own admission, those organising the Bilderberg meetings have “never sought any public attention”, while always denying conspiracy theories that they are a global ruling class that can start wars and decide who becomes the next US President. They just refer to it as forum for informal discussions about the world’s “megatrends” and a chance for participants to “reflect and gather insights”.

The Bilderberg organisers have, though, just released a list those who will be present from June 9-12 for a three-day meeting chaired by a French count (and chairman of the global insurance giant AXA), who likes to spend his weekends at his castle in Anjou.

Among 126 participants discussing an agenda that – we are also told – will include China, Europe, migration, the Middle East, Russia and the “geo-politics of energy and commodity prices”, will be Christine Lagarde, managing director of the International Monetary Fund, and Jose Manuel Barroso, the former president of the European Commission.

Unlike last year, British Chancellor George Osborne will not be present.  Although Michael O’Leary, the controversial CEO of Ryanair will.

It might also be worth paying attention to the future fortunes of attendees who  seem obscure.  Bill Clinton was a conference attendee in 1991, as a mere governor of Arkansas, a year before he was elected US President.  Tony Blair was only a shadow minister when he got his invitation – (you can’t apply to attend, you must be invited) – in 1993.  Conference organisers have previously insisted there is no conspiracy to crowbar their chosen people into top jobs, they just have excellent talent spotters.

But for now, the more eye-catching Bilderberg attendees due to be rubbing shoulders with senior representatives of Deutsche Bank, the European Central Bank and Lazard – as well as oil giants Shell and BP – will be:

Henri de Castries

When he is not at his home on the Boulevard Saint-Germain, on Paris’ left bank, Henri de Castries, who will be the chairman of the 2016 Bilderberg Conference, can, according to the left-leaning French newspaper Libération, often be found relaxing in his castle in rural Anjou.

Libération described the 61-year-old fifth Count of Castries as a “highbrow” member of a family whose ancestors fought in the Crusades in the 11th and 13th Century.

Continuing the military tradition, his father Comte François de La Croix de Castries reportedly served as a soldier in Korea – as well as the more controversial colonial theatres of French Indochina and Algeria.

The Bilderberg Conference chairman, however, chose a civilian career, attending the École Nationale d’Administration, (ENA) the ‘Grande École’ often regarded as a factory for producing future French prime ministers and presidents including Jacques Chirac, Francois Hollande and Alain Juppé – (who was listed as an attendee at last year’s Bilderberg Conference.)

After ENA, Mr de Castries audited on behalf of the Minister of Finances of France and became a member of the French Treasury in 1984, where he participated in the privatisations initiated by the Chirac government.

He joined AXA in 1989 and in May 2000 he became chairman and chief executive of the Paris-based global insurance group, which is thought to have assets of 552 billion euros (£430 billion.)

Sir John Sawers

Sir John is listed by the Bilderberg organisers as “Chairman and Partner, Macro Advisory Partners”, a consultancy that according to its website provides corporations and governments with “strategic insights to navigate the intersection of global markets, geopolitics and government policy.”

Sir John is also a former head of the Secret Intelligence Service MI6. Prior to heading MI6 between 2009 and 2014, Sir John was Foreign Policy Advisor to Tony Blair from 1999 to 2001 and Political Director of the Foreign Office (2003-7).

He also spent three months in Baghdad in 2003 as Britain’s Special Representative to Iraq, helping to establish the country’s transitional government after the invasion.

In May 2015 the oil and gas giant BP appointed Sir John to its board – on what was reported to have been a £90,000 salary.

It was thought he had been brought in to help BP deal with difficult political environments in some of the countries in which it operated.

BP’s chairman, Carl-Henric Svanberg, said Sir John “brings extensive experience of international affairs and geopolitics”.

BP will also be represented at the Bilderberg meeting by Robert Dudley, its group chief executive.

David Petraeus

Listed on the Bilderberg website as “Chairman, KKR Global Institute”, Mr Petraeus is also a former director of the CIA.

Appointed by Geroge W Bush as the general commanding the multinational force in Iraq in 2007, he orchestrated what became known as ‘the surge’, bringing in 30,000 more troops to the country in a move which appeared to quell the insurgency there.

An expert in counter-insurgency, he was made director of the CIA by Barack Obama in 2011.  He resigned, however, in November 2012 after it was reported that he had had an affair with his biographer Paula Broadwell.

James A Johnson

He’s listed by the Bilderberg organisers as “Chairman, Johnson Capital Partners.”

He also happens to be a long-serving Goldman Sachs board member who has been called “Washington DC’s Medici” – a reference to Italy’s Medici family, the so-called “Godfathers of the Renaissance” who produced three popes, prospered in banking and sponsored the arts.

In 2008 it was reported that Mr Johnson was vetting Barack Obama’s potential vice-presidential candidates, as he had chosen running mates for Walter Mondale in 1984, and John Kerry in 2004.

As well as setting up a commercial strategy consultancy with former US Assistant Secretary of State Richard Holbrooke, Mr Johnson, 72, served as chairman and chief executive to the Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae) between 1991 and 1998.

His salary was reported to have been $21 million (£14.5 million) by the time he left Fannie Mae – ten years before, at the height of the global economic crisis of 2008, it had to be taken over by the US government.

Atlantic Magazine once described Mr Johnson as “famously reluctant to talk to the Press, which is one reason why he has become a trusted advisor to so many politicians.”

Cartsen Kengeter

As the CEO of the Deutsche Börse, Mr Kengeter will become a leading figure in one of the most important financial institutions in the world when the merger between the Börse and the London Stock Exchange is completed at the end of this year or in early 2017.

With the London Stock Exchange Group already owning the Milan-based Borsa Italia, the planned merger – announced in February – will create one of the world’s largest exchange companies with a combined value thought to be in the region of £21 billion.

Deutsche Börse shareholders will own 54.4 per cent of the new holding company UK TopCo.   Reporting on the merger, The Financial Times described it as evidence of “an ambitious expansion strategy” devised by Mr Kengeter, a 49-year-old the newspaper described as “a starkly ambitious former Goldman Sachs banker who pursues extreme skiing in his spare time.”

Economic Collapse Is Erupting All Over The Planet As Global Leaders Begin To Panic

There is absolutely no reason to be optimistic about the direction of the global economy right now.

Mainstream news outlets are already starting to use the phrase “economic collapse” to describe what is going on in some areas of our world right now.

For many Americans this may seem a bit strange, but the truth is that the worldwide economic slowdown that began during the second half of last year is starting to get a lot worse.  In this article, we are going to examine evidence of this from South America, Europe, Asia and North America.  Once we are done, it should be obvious that there is absolutely no reason to be optimistic about the direction of the global economy right now.  The warnings of so many prominent experts are now becoming a reality, and what we have witnessed so far are just the early chapters of a crushing economic crisis that will affect every man, woman and child in the entire world.

Let’s start with Brazil.  It has the 7th largest economy on the entire planet, and it is already enduring its worst recession in 25 years.  In fact, at the end of last year Goldman Sachs said that what was going on down there was actually a “depression“.

But now the crisis in Brazil has escalated significantly.

I want to share with you an excerpt from a recent article entitled “Brazil: Economic collapse worse than feared“.  I know, that title sounds like it comes directly fromThe Economic Collapse Blog, but I didn’t write it.

It actually comes from CNN

Amid political chaos, Brazil’s economic collapse is worse than its government once believed.

In the midst of rising calls to impeach President Dilma Rousseff, Brazil’s central bank announced Thursday that it now expects the country’s economy to shrink 3.5% this year.

That’s worse than the central bank’s previous estimate for a 1.9% contraction. The darker forecast matches what the International Monetary Fund projected for Brazil — Latin America’s largest country — and what many independent economists have suspected.

It is one thing for Michael Snyder to tell you that Brazil is in the midst of “economic collapse”, but it is another thing entirely for CNN to say it.

And of course I have been warning about the crisis down in Brazil for quite some time now.  For much more on this, please see my previous article entitled “The Economic Collapse Of South America Is Well Underway“.

Meanwhile, things are actually much worse in Venezuela than they are in Brazil.  Food and basic supplies are in short supply, the inflation rate has hit 720 percent, and crime is completely out of control.

The following is from an article in the Independent entitled “Venezuela is on the brink of complete economic collapse“…

The only question now is whether Venezuela’s government or economy will completely collapse first.

The key word there is “completely.” Both are well into their death throes. Indeed, Venezuela’s ruling party just lost congressional elections that gave the opposition a veto-proof majority, and it’s hard to see that getting any better for them any time soon — or ever.

Incumbents, after all, don’t tend to do too well when, according to the International Monetary Fund, their economy shrinks 10 percent one year, an additional 6 percent the next, and inflation explodes to 720 percent. It’s no wonder, then, that markets expect Venezuela to default on its debt in the very near future. The country is basically bankrupt.

Once again we see a very respected mainstream publication using the phrase “economic collapse” to describe what is happening in South America.

You can find some stunning video of the “economic Armageddon” that is taking place in Venezuela right here.  I would encourage you to watch that video, because what is happening down there will eventually be happening here.

Meanwhile, over in Europe the collapse of the Italian banking system has entered a disturbing new chapter.  Italy’s finance minister has called a meeting in Rome for Monday that will be focusing on a “last resort” bailout plan for the troubled banks…

Finance minister Pier Carlo Padoan has called a meeting in Rome on Monday with executives from Italy’s largest financial institutions to agree final details of a “last resort” bailout plan.

Yet on the eve of that gathering, concerns remain as to whether the plan will be sufficient to ringfence the weakest of Italy’s large banks, Monte dei Paschi di Siena, from contagion, according to people involved in the talks.

Italian bank shares have lost almost half their value so far this year amid investor worries over a €360bn pile of non-performing loans — equivalent to about a fifth of GDP. Lenders’ profitability has been hit by a crippling three-year recession.

As Italy descends into financial chaos, the rest of the continent better be paying attention.

Do you remember how hard it was for the rest of Europe to rescue Greece?

Well, Greece has the 44th largest economy on the planet.

Italy has the 8th.

It would be hard to overstate the seriousness of what is going on over in Europe, and it is not just Italy we are talking about.  All over the continent major banks are in deep trouble, and the chairman of France’s second largest  retail bank recently told reporters that “I am much more worried than I was in 2009“.

And there is very good reason for concern.  On Sunday, we learned that a major “bail-in” had just been announced for one of Austria’s most prominent banks.  The following comes from Zero Hedge

And then today, following a decision by the Austrian Banking Regulator, the Finanzmarktaufsicht or Financial Market Authority,Austria officially became the first European country to use a new law under the framework imposed by Bank the European Recovery and Resolution Directive to share losses of a failed bank with senior creditors as it slashed the value of debt owed by Heta Asset Resolution AG.

The highlights from the announcement:

Today, the Austrian Financial Market Authority (FMA) in its function as the resolution authority pursuant to the Bank Recovery and Resolution Act (BaSAG – Bundesgesetz über die Sanierung und Abwicklung von Banken) has issued the key features for the further steps for the resolution of HETA ASSET RESOLUTION AG. The most significant measures are:

  • a 100% bail-in for all subordinated liabilities,
  • a 53.98% bail-in, resulting in a 46.02% quota, for all eligible preferential liabilities,
  • the cancellation of all interest payments from 01.03.2015, when HETA was placed into resolution pursuant to BaSAG,
  • as well as a harmonisation of the maturities of all eligible liabilities to 31.12.2023.

According to the current resolution plan for HETA, the wind-down process should be concluded by 2020, although the repayment of all claims as well as the legally binding conclusion of all currently outstanding legal disputes will realistically only be concluded by the end of 2023. Only at that point will it be possible to finally distribute the assets and to liquidate the company.

The dominoes are starting to fall in Europe, and I would expect even bigger announcements in the weeks and months to come.

Over in Asia, economic chaos is beginning to prevail as well.

In China, the stock market is already down more than 40 percent from the peak, Chinese exports were down 25.4 percent on a year over year basis in February, and Chinese economic numbers overall have not been this poor since the depths of the last global recession.

At the same time, the Japanese economy is really struggling right now.  As I wrote about the other day, Japanese GDP has shrunk for two out of the last three quarters, we just saw Japanese industrial production experience the biggest one month decline that we have witnessed since the tsunami of 2011, and business sentiment has fallen to a three year low.  The Nikkei has dropped by about 5,000 points from where it was last summer, and some analysts believe that Japanese markets “are being destroyed” due to massive intervention by the Bank of Japan.

Here in the United States, we haven’t been hit quite as hard as the rest of the world just yet, but there are lots of very disturbing warning signs all around us.

At the end of last week, we learned that it is being projected that U.S. GDP will have grown by just 0.1 or 0.2 percent during the first quarter of 2016.  And on Monday corporate earnings reporting season begins, and it is expected to be a very, very bad one.  The following comes from Business Insider

We are about to get confirmation that earnings growth for America’s biggest companies was negative in the first quarter, compared to the same period a year ago.

When aluminum giant Alcoa releases its results on Monday, it will mark the unofficial start of the heaviest reporting season for S&P 500 companies.

The final scoreboard is expected to show a 9.1% earnings drop for the quarter, according to FactSet senior earnings analyst John Butters.

If these projections turn out to be accurate, it will be the fourth quarter in a row of earnings declines.  This is something that we never see outside of a recession.

And for a whole bunch more numbers which indicate that the U.S. economy is in very serious trouble, please see my previous article entitled “19 Facts That Prove Things In America Are Worse Than They Were Six Months Ago“.

Of course I am just another voice in the crowd when it comes to predicting that the U.S. economy is headed for rough times.  For example, just check out what Societe Generale economist Albert Edwards is saying

A tidal wave is coming to the US economy, according to Albert Edwards, and when it crashes it’s going to throw the economy into recession.

…the profit recession facing American corporations is going to lead to a collapse in corporate credit.

“Despite risk assets enjoying a few weeks in the sun our fail-safe recession indicator has stopped flashing amber and turned to red”

He continued:

Whole economy profits never normally fall this deeply without a recession unfolding. And with the US corporate sector up to its eyes in debt, the one asset class to be avoided — even more so than the ridiculously overvalued equity market — is US corporate debt. The economy will surely be swept away by a tidal wave of corporate default.

As you can see, it isn’t just one nation or one region of the world that we need to be concerned about.

Economic chaos is erupting literally all over the planet, and global leaders are starting to panic.

Unfortunately, they have had seven years to try to fix things since the last global recession, and they didn’t get the job done.  Anyone that believes that by some miracle they will be able to pull us out of the fire this time and that everything will somehow be okay is simply engaged in wishful thinking.

We dodged a New Year’s Eve bullet

We escaped a bullet on New Year’s Eve. Many bullets, in fact.

Thankfully, freedom-loving people were spared a massive jihad attack on New Year’s Eve, thanks to extraordinary wartime measures that were implemented in many major cities across the world.

Jews in Israel were not so lucky when a devout Muslim opened fire on a bar restaurant in Tel Aviv, killing two people and wounding five. But that was all the success that jihad mass murderers had on New Year’s Eve, despite their best efforts. New York City’s Times Square was in lockdown, much like a war zone, and there was no jihad attack there.

Extreme measures were undertaken elsewhere as well. NBC News reported that “Munich’s main station was evacuated just before New Year after authorities received a ‘very concrete’ tip that ISIS militants from Iraq and Syria were planning an attack at midnight, officials said Friday.”

Meanwhile, the BBC reported that in Belgium and France, authorities were also working overtime to prevent more jihad mass murder: “Three people detained on Thursday in connection with an alleged plot to target Brussels on New Year’s Eve are to be held for a further 24 hours, Belgian prosecutors say. Another three people who were also detained during the raids in and around the Belgian capital have been released. Two other terror suspects were arrested earlier this week, and Brussels’ mayor canceled New Year festivities. French authorities have deployed more than 100,000 police to ensure security.”

Brussels was a particular target. The Independent reported on New Year’s Eve that “two members of a motorbike gang with alleged links to global terror networks are among the suspects arrested over a plot to launch attacks in Brussels. Authorities said a suspected Isis terror cell were planning to attack high-profile targets in the Belgian capital over the festive season, prompting the cancellation of its main New Year’s Eve fireworks display.

Military fatigues, Airsoft replica gun equipment, ISIS propaganda, phones and computers have been seized from homes of the alleged suspects in a series of police raids.”

“Brussels’ mayor canceled New Year festivities.” This is simply to reward terrorists, and to show them that they can get us to curtail our activities with the threat of murder. Breitbart London summed it up: “So this is the way 2015 ends for Europe, not with a bang, but with a whimper. With Brussels, Paris, London and Berlin all on high alert, having either canceled or drastically altered their plans for traditional New Year’s celebrations across the capitals of the continent.” What are the implications of this? The loss of our civilizational identity: “‘Tolerance’ – going. ‘Sexual liberation’ – going. ‘Feminism’ – gone. These, if not yet fully dead, are ideals in their death throes as Europe undergoes a seismic shift in demographics and inevitably, our politics. And what better way than to mark the occasion that German Chancellor Angela Merkel – not so much the architect as the project manager – delivering her annual New Year speech, for the first time, subtitled in Arabic?”

Even outside of major cities, jihad terrorists were plotting to commit mass murder on New Year’s Eve. According to the Christian Science Monitor, “A young man in Rochester, N.Y., faces charges of plotting to kill people celebrating New Years Eve, the FBI said, in one of several cases of suspected terrorist activity in upstate New York since 9/11. Emanuel Lutchman, age 25, is suspected of providing material support to the Islamic State. In the past few days, he had purchased supplies at Walmart in preparation to attack, kidnap and kill people at a restaurant or bar on New Year’s Eve, as the Rochester Democrat & Chronicle reported. Officials have not released the specific target. According to an affidavit from FBI Special Agent Timothy Klapec, Mr. Lutchman had pledged allegiance to IS and was attempting to travel to Syria, but was encouraged by a suspected IS-affiliate to launch an attack against non-Muslims in the United States to prove himself.”

All those plots foiled – that’s a testimony to the continuing effectiveness of our law-enforcement apparatus, even as Obama has tried to cripple it by forbidding counter-terror training to contain any mention of Islam or jihad in connection with terrorism. But these foiled plots are hardly the end – no, they are, in fact, just the beginning.

CNN noted: “Disrupted terrorist plots. Increased police presence. Warnings to stay alert. Fears of terrorism and stepped-up security provide a sobering backdrop to planned New Year’s Eve celebrations around the world.” This is the new normal. CNN added: “In the United States, federal and local security officials are tightening security in high-profile locations, including New York’s Times Square and the Rose Bowl festivities near Los Angeles. In Belgium and Turkey, police said they disrupted terrorist plots that would have targeted celebrations to ring in the New Year in the capitals of those countries. … Before President Barack Obama left for his Hawaii vacation, his top security officials briefed him about a threat, originating from overseas, of possible attacks in New York, Los Angeles and Washington between the Christmas and New Year’s holidays, according to senior U.S. officials briefed on the matter.”

Yet in light of this, National Public Radio kicked off the New Year by pushing Muslim immigration and ignoring the terror threat. Your taxpayer dollars at work. Just how much does the U.S. government give to NPR annually? $400 million in 2010 – how much in 2015? Yet NPR does not represent We the People. It has its own liberal agenda to follow, smearing and defaming everyone who calls attention to the jihad threat. NPR must be defunded.

We escaped a bullet as we ushered in the new year of 2016, but this is no way to live – with a siege-like mentality while demonizing criticism of the ideology of the enemy. In 2016, this willful ignorance must end.

America Looks A Lot Like Nazi Germany Did Just Prior To World War II

In fact, I would venture to say that the Nazification of the United States is pretty much complete
America Looks A Lot Like Nazi Germany Did Just Prior To World War II

by Michael Snyder | End Of The American Dream | October 20, 2015


Once upon a time America fought a great war to rid the world of the Nazis, but now we have become just like them.

In fact, I would venture to say that the Nazification of the United States is pretty much complete.  As you will see below, we have a heavily socialized economy where tax rates are out of control and lots of freebies are given out just like the Nazis did.  And just like the Nazis, our society has become highly militarized and our government has become increasingly obsessed with watching, tracking, monitoring and controlling the general population.  But more than anything else, all of the pageantry and beauty in our society masks an evil which has grown to a level that is almost unspeakable.  The other day, my wife and I were watching some footage of the beautiful parades and celebrations that were held in Germany before World War II, and they certainly were very impressive.  But under the surface, a great evil was growing.  Just because something happens behind closed doors does not make it okay, and just like the Nazis, our society is about to learn an exceedingly painful lesson in that regard.

Let’s start out by talking about the economy.  Most people tend to regard the Nazis as “far right”, but the truth is that they were socialists.  By heavily taxing and spending, the Nazis were able to temporarily restore economic prosperity after the great economic crisis that occurred under the Weimar Republic, and this helped fuel their wild popularity.  The following comes from Wikipedia

In the midst of the Great Depression, the Nazis restored economic stability and ended mass unemployment using heavy military spending and a mixed economy. Extensive public works were undertaken, including the construction ofAutobahns (high speed highways). The return to economic stability boosted the regime’s popularity.

Just like the Democrats of today, most people don’t consider the Nazis to have been socialists, but that is precisely what they were.  I think that former game show host Chuck Woolery nailed it with some of his recent public statements

Chuck Woolery, perhaps best known for being the host of the show “Love Connection” from 1982-94, also frequently takes to Twitter to express political viewpoints. In a recent series of tweets Woolery, 74, offered his opinion on politics, the size of government, and the political nature of the Nazi party:

“Nazi is described as a right wing organization, Yet their were Socialists [sic]. They were left. But Chuck. But My BUTT.”

“National Socialist German Workers’ Party. Nazi Party. Hitler. Need I go on?”

“Maybe better. Democrats don’t value the country. They value the power of Government. There is a difference ya know.”

I knew there was a reason why I always liked that guy.

Just like Barack Obama and the Democrats, the Nazis loved to give out free stuff.  Kitty Werthmann was a child in Austria at the time the Nazis took over, and her description of the freebies the Nazis were handing out sounds very much like what the Democrats want to do today…

Newlyweds immediately received a $1,000 loan from the government to establish a household. We had big programs for families. All day care and education were free. High schools were taken over by the government and college tuition was subsidized. Everyone was entitled to free handouts, such as food stamps, clothing, and housing.

I like free stuff too, but in the end someone always has to pay for all of that free stuff.  According to Kitty Werthmann, “our tax rates went up to 80% of our income“, and in America we are moving in the same direction.

In the United States today, when you add up all federal taxes, all state taxes, all local taxes, all property taxes and all sales taxes, there are some Americans that actually pay more than 50 percent of their incomes in taxes.

Somehow we still have the audacity to claim that we are not socialists even though that is exactly what we have become.

And the Germans had their own version of Obamacare too.  The following is more eyewitness testimony from Kitty Werthmann

Before Hitler, we had very good medical care. Many American doctors trained at the University of Vienna . After Hitler, health care was socialized, free for everyone. Doctors were salaried by the government. The problem was, since it was free, the people were going to the doctors for everything. When the good doctor arrived at his office at 8 a.m., 40 people were already waiting and, at the same time, the hospitals were full. If you needed elective surgery, you had to wait a year or two for your turn. There was no money for research as it was poured into socialized medicine. Research at the medical schools literally stopped, so the best doctors left Austria and emigrated to other countries.

There is no way that you can get around it.  The Nazis were never on “the far right”.  The were always leftists, and they always hated capitalsim.  National Socialist theologian Gregor Strasser once made the following statement

We National Socialists are enemies, deadly enemies, of the present capitalist system with its exploitation of the economically weak … and we are resolved under all circumstances to destroy this system.

Not even Barack Obama or Bernie Sanders would make such an extreme statement today.

And like the Nazis, our society has become highly militarized.

Just prior to World War II, the Germans probably had the most powerful military on the entire planet, and they loved to use that military to push other countries around.  They stunned the entire world when they swept through Poland, and the lightning speed with which they defeated France changed the way war is waged forever.

But just like the leftists in our own nation, the Nazis definitely did not want the general population to be armed.  Kitty Werthmann remembers very well what happened in Austria under the Nazis…

Next came gun registration. People were getting injured by guns. Hitler said that the real way to catch criminals (we still had a few) was by matching serial numbers on guns. Most citizens were law abiding and dutifully marched to the police station to register their firearms. Not long after-wards, the police said that it was best for everyone to turn in their guns. The authorities already knew who had them, so it was futile not to comply voluntarily.

And just like the leftists of today, the Germans were extremely suspicious of individual liberty and freedom.  The secret police were everywhere, and anyone that was even suspected of anti-government activity was monitored very closely.

Sadly, we are becoming just like the Nazis in this regard, only now we have the technological capability to take things so much farther.  Government control freaks are systematically watching us, tracking us, recording our phone calls and monitoring our emails.  It has gotten so bad that even 64 percent of all reporters believe that the government is spying on them.  We spy on our enemies, we spy on our friends (just ask the French and the Germans about this) and we even spy on the little old lady down the street.

We have been sold the lie that we have to give up our privacy and our liberty in exchange for security.

It is the same lie that the Nazis told.

But perhaps our greatest similarity to the Nazi regime of the 1930s is our lust for blood.

What the Nazis did behind closed doors was so horrific that it is hard to even speak about it.  Once the Holocaust was revealed, the world should have never allowed crimes against humanity like that to ever happen again.

But they are happening.

They are happening behind closed doors in America today, and most Americans are perfectly okay with this.

In this country, millions of babies are being systematically murdered and their organs are being harvested.  Those organs are then sold off to the highest bidder and they are ultimately used in extremely bizarre scientific experiments.

In recent months these crimes have been put on display for all the world to see, and yet the American people have not responded with outrage.  In fact, only 29 percent of Americans even want to cut off the hundreds of millions of dollars that Planned Parenthood is getting from the federal government every year.

Do you know what that 29 percent figure tells me?

It tells me that America is done.

America is finished.

And it turns out that Hitler was actually a huge fan of the founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger.  As I have written about previously, it was Sanger that once said the following…

“The most merciful thing that a family does to one of its infant members is to kill it.”

Hitler echoed this sentiment when he penned the following in Mein Kampf…

“The demand that defective people be prevented from propagating equally defective offspring. . . represents the most humane act of mankind.”

Of course those on the left are going to get very upset by all of this, and I am sure that some of them will leave some very nasty comments following this article.

But the truth is the truth.

And it isn’t just Democrats – most Republicans in Congress are in the exact same boat too.

If we don’t want to be like the Nazis, we should stop acting like them, and that includes not pushing Christianity out of every area of public life.  The following information was uncovered by author Bruce Walker, the author of “The Swastika Against the Cross: The Nazi War on Christianity“…

The Nazi tract Gott und Volk was distributed in 1941, and it describes the life cycle of German youth in the future, who would:  “With parties and gifts the youth will be led painlessly from one faith to the other and will grow up without ever having heard of the Sermon on the Mount or the Golden Rule, to say nothing of the Ten Commandments… The education of the youth is to be confined primarily by the teacher, the officer, and the leaders of the party.  The priests will die out.  They have estranged the youth from the Volk.  Into their places will step the leaders.  Not deputies of God.  But anyway the best Germans.  And how shall we train our children?  Thus, as though they had never heard of Christianity!

Our nation is falling apart because we have rejected the values and the principles that were handed down to us by our forefathers.

We have embraced the same lies that the Nazis embraced, and if we don’t turn around we will experience a similar fate.

I think that the following excerpt from a recent RT editorial sums things up pretty well…

The United States is in decline. While not all major shocks to the system will be devastating, when the right one comes along, the outcome may be dramatic.

Not all explosives are the same. We all know you have to be careful with dynamite. Best to handle it gently and not smoke while you’re around it.

Semtex is different. You can drop it. You can throw it. You can put it in the fire. Nothing will happen. Nothing until you put the right detonator in it, that is.

To me, the US – and most of the supposedly free West – increasingly looks like a truck being systematically filled with Semtex.

But it’s easy to counter cries of alarm with the fact that the truck is stable – because it’s true: you can hurl more boxes into the back without any real danger. Absent the right detonator, it is no more dangerous than a truckload of mayonnaise.

But add the right detonator and you’re just one click away from complete devastation.

Absent a major crisis, the United States may be able to keep going down this same road for a few years more.

But I wouldn’t count on it.

We have willingly chosen to tear down and destroy everything that our forefathers built, and we were convinced that we had a better way.

Now decades of incredibly foolish decisions are starting to catch up with us, and yet we still persist in our stubbornness.

So where do we go from here?

What will the fate of America be?

TPP Endgame: Turn America into a Third World Wasteland

TPP Endgame: Turn America into a Third World Wasteland

by Kurt Nimmo | Infowars.com | June 25, 2015


The end result of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) passed by a traitorous Congress will be to reduce America to a third world wasteland on par with Mexico where the median household income is $4,500.

The idea behind the so-called trade agreement is to replace and expand NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement passed by the supposed liberal president Bill Clinton.

“NAFTA was supposed to create 200,000 new jobs through increased exports to Mexico but, by 2010, growing trade deficits with Mexico had eliminated 682,900 U.S. jobs, with job losses in every U.S. state and congressional district,” write Robert E. Scott for the Economic Policy Institute.

NAFTA streamlined the process of moving manufacturing jobs from the United States to Mexico and eventually China and now Vietnam where the monthly salary is around $150 per month.

NAFTA resulted in the loss of around 5 million U.S. manufacturing jobs and the TPP will dramatically increase the losses.

40 million more U.S. jobs could be sent offshore over the next two decades if the current trend deindustrializing America continues under TPP, notes Professor Alan Blinder of Princeton University.

In addition to sending jobs offshore, the TPP will significantly decrease the wages of non-college degree workers.

Scott writes that “expanded trade with low-wage countries has reduced the annual wages of a typical worker by $1,800 per year. Given that there are roughly 100 million non-college-educated workers in the U.S. economy (about 70 percent of the labor force), the scale of wage losses suffered by this group translates to roughly $180 billion.”

“The TPP’s implications on the poor and working class of the United States are grave and serious. From information gathered thus far it is known that the TPP would drive down wages even further,” writes the Rev. Bruce Wright, President’s Commission on Ending Homelessness.

The corporate trade agreement will create a “potentially dramatic increase in poverty, unemployment, and homelessness due to decreasing wages, further joblessness, and increased health costs.”

The federal government’s Census Bureau reports half of the United States population is now living at or below the poverty line. Median household income adjusted for inflation has declined for five years in a row.

“During the four years that marked President Barack Obama’s first term in office, the real median income of American households dropped by $2,627 and the number of people in poverty increased by approximately 6,667,000, according to data released today by the Census Bureau,” CNSNews reported in September, 2013.

More than 50 percent of the population — 165 million of 308 million Americans — receive some sort of government assistance and the number of Americans on welfare has increased from 97 million to 107 million since Obama took office.

The number of Americans on food stamps has grown from 17 million in the year 2000 to more than 47 million today.

The New Corporate Serfdom

This corporate drive to impoverish humanity and consolidate wealth and power is part of a process designed to reinvent and modernize the feudal system of the Middle Ages. The new serfdom now emerging will not simply control Europe, but the entire world under the rule of a globalist government.

In the Middle Ages under monarchical feudalism peasants were slaves who had no rights, were perniciously taxed, were forced to turn over the best part of their harvest to manorial lords, were not allowed to own oxen or horses, hunt (under penalty of death) and had to ask permission to move or get married. They were not allowed to own weapons.

As Daisy Luther notes, a return to this system is now emerging. From globalist trade agreements and corporate monopolization and ever increasing government regulation, today’s oligarchs are ushering in a return to serfdom.

“Agenda 21, a document devised by the United Nations, goes even further to separate the 90% from the 10%,” she writes. “In the name of tree-hugging largess,  A-21 is quietly working to round up the peasants and place them in cities, with massive restrictions on their movement.  Through public transit that only goes to certain places, A-21 is ‘keeping the peasants on the estate.’ People are shoehorned into tiny apartments with no opportunity to become self-sufficient and grow their own food.  Using ‘national land’ (parks) requires payment in many areas.  Even the collection and use of rainwater is being targeted by Agenda 21, sending the very clear message:  WE OWN EVERYTHING.”

TPP is about the global elite not only owning everything but also reducing humanity to a state of grinding poverty. People on the edge of starvation and homelessness are less concerned with liberty and overthrowing the elite and their minions than merely surviving.

NATO Heavy Weapons Fueling World War III

Threat of global thermonuclear war looms as Ukraine crisis intensifies

by Alex Jones | Infowars.com | June 22, 2015


NATO is pushing civilization dangerously closer to a new world war by antagonizing Russia with the Ukrainian conflict.

Defense Secretary Ash Carter announced just this week that the United States would be contributing “weapons, aircraft and forces, including commandos, for NATO’s rapid reaction force” to push back against Russia’s presence in the region.

The situation, which began with billionaire George Soros’ admitted overthrow of the Ukranian government, has led to dangerous nuclear rhetoric, far surpassing the Cold War era.

– In The Report from Iron Mountain published in 1967, just as the Pentagon’s lucrative Vietnam War was being revved into high gear, establishment braintrusters confirmed that perpetual war is absolutely vital for controlling and manipulating the masses. The document even suggested a number of options for creating fictitious enemies, noting that perpetual war induces populations to give blind allegiance to political authority.(52)

The Forecaster

Can a computer model predict the world economy?

MARTIN ARMSTRONG, once a US based trillion dollar financial advisor, developed a computer model based on the number pi and other cyclical theories to predict economic turning points with eerie accuracy. In the early 80s he established his financial forecasting and advising company Princeton Economics. His forecasts were in great demand worldwide. As Armstrong’s recognition grew, prominent New York bankers invited him to join “the club” to aid them in market manipulation. Martin repeatedly refused. Later that same year (1999) the FBI stormed his offices confiscating his computer model and accusing him of a 3 billion dollar Ponzi scheme. Was it an attempt to silence him and to prevent him from initiating a public discourse on the real Ponzi Scheme of debts that the world has been building up for decades? Armstrong predicts that a sovereign debt crisis will start to unfold on a global level after October 1, 2015 – a major pi turning point that his computer model forecasted many years ago.
