When the Industrial Revolution began in Britain, in the late 1700s, there was lots of money to be made by investing in factories and mills, by opening up new markets, and by gaining control of sources of raw materials. The folks who had the most money to invest, however, were not so much in Britain but more in Holland. Holland had been the leading Western power in the 1600s, and its bankers were the leading capitalists. In pursuit of profit, Dutch capital flowed to the British stock market, and thus the Dutch funded the rise of Britain, who subsequently eclipsed Holland both economically and geopolitically.
In this way British industrialism came to be dominated by wealthy investors, and capitalism became the dominant economic system. This led to a major social transformation. Britain had been essentially an aristocratic society, dominated by landholding families. As capitalism became dominant economically, capitalists became dominant politically. Tax structures and import-export policies were gradually changed to favour investors over landowners.
U.S. poverty totals hit a 50-year high Census Bureau’s grim statistics show recession’s lingering effects, as young adults move back home and 1 million more Americans go without health insurance … In a grim portrait of a nation in economic turmoil, the government reported that the number of people living in poverty last year surged to 46.2 million — the most in at least half a century — as 1 million more Americans went without health insurance and household incomes fell sharply. – Los Angeles Times

Dominant Social Theme: These things happen. No reason. Depressions spontaneously occur. They are “market mistakes.”
Free-Market Analysis: We’ve spent considerable time in the past three years (the past decade, actually), analyzing how the powers-that-be have reorganized society, especially American society, in a way that relentlessly reduces prosperity. Figures released yesterday from the US Census provide a startling illustration of just how effective elites have been. (See excerpt above.)
Why would a handful of wealthy central banking families want to impoverish the US and render its citizens penniless? Our conclusion is simple: World government is on the way and the American culture is still resistant to the kind of hyper-regulatory corporatism that is necessary to support this kind of governance.

A few hours later NATO hit a target in Tripoli, killing Gaddafi’s 29-year-old son Saif al-Arab, three of Gaddafi’s grandchildren, all under twelve years of age, and several friends and neighbors.
In his TV address, Gaddafi had appealed to the NATO nations for a cease-fire and negotiations after six weeks of bombings and cruise missile attacks against his country.
Well, let’s see if we can derive some understanding of the complex Libyan turmoil.
Bilderberg 2011:”Elitist One World Ltd. – Global Network of Giant Cartells, More Powerful than Any Nation, to Control Mankind´s Necessities of Life and Numbers Through Bloody Wars”Posted: July 29, 2011

The Bilderberg meeetings are held 2-3 days every year – for one reason: to create a corporate world government to enslave mankind. This year, the elitist bankers, their politician and corporate henchmen and a few journalists met at St. Moritz, Switzerland on 9-10 June – all sworn in to keep silent about the matters discussed. However the Bilderberg hunters Jim Tucker and Daniel Estulin have reliable moles inside the meeting – so that important points always seep out. This year war was on the program. The elitists want a big an bloody war in the Middle East – just sparing Israel. Syria and Iran are being targeted – but another story is how NATO can manage such a big war considering all the failures in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya etc.Invasion of Libya and intervention in Syria are reported to be in the planning. Why? Jim Tucker, said the elite believe the world is over-populated and that war represents a partial solution. “They are unified on their war project,” said Tucker, citing his Trilateralist-Bilderberg source. They think “ they have to limit the population growth, the one way to do it is with our wars. They have been emphasizing that all day.” So, they had invited both NATO´s Secretary-General, Anders Fogh Rasmussen and Serving US Minister of Defence, Robert Gates. The elitists are concerned about the increasing opposition in the US Congress against endless wars for the elitist dreams – and so the elite is determined to act soon – before the opposition becomes too strong. So, they want US to stay in Iraq. “When you think of Iraq, think big,” one US Bilderberger remarked during the discussion, suggesting that the country will merely be used as a launch pad for a wider regional war that will “include every nation in the Middle East except for Israel.”

Crisis scenarios are the means by which dictators justify control. The most often cited example is Hitler’s “Enabling Act” in the wake of the Reichstag Fire. Another example is the “Patriot Act” in the aftermath of 9/11. Globalist organizations, behind the usual façade of the most idealistic intentions, such as the Club of Rome, have for decades warned of impending planetary doom unless a world control system of inaugurated. While many of the problems addressed by global control enthusiasts are real, attention is deflected away from the fact of those who are making the suggestions for extensive global controls to deal with problems also happen to be those who created the problems in the first place. These are the plutocrats who run a de facto globalist control system, whose aim is to turn it into a de jure system.

Mention fascism and most peoples’ minds turn to Nazi Germany, Fascist Italy, Franco’s Spain, Salazar’s Portugal, Japanese Fascism, Papadopoulos’ Greece and South Africa’s Apartheid regime. However, most people are blissfully unaware of a rising form of fascism, more virulent than all past fascist regimes combined. Its aim is to subjugate the entire planet and its resources to U.S. corporate interests.

The Bilderberg Group was formed in 1954 out of the need of corporate America to ensure cohesion of purpose on the part of its European partners in the recently formed North Atlantic Alliance (NATO) – the twin aim being to facilitate the flow of American capital into the region, and to bring Germany into the Alliance (against, it should be noted, the wishes of many of the USA’s partners). That it is a group endowed with enormous political clout can be attested to by both an examination of the lists of committee members and conference attendees over the years – together with the gravity and importance of the subjects discussed at these conferences (NATO, understandably, being repeatedly a key subject); and the fact that these conferences take place under very strict security cover supplied by the respective host countries – even though implicit within the structure of this cabal is its unaccountable, secretive nature.
The Trilateral Commission was formed in 1973, its agenda determined by the corporate-funded Brookings Institute and the Kettering Foundation – with not a little help from David Rockefeller of the Chase-Manhattan Bank. That its projected formation should have been so enthusiastically acclaimed by the Bilderberg Conference in Knokke, Belgium in 1972 should cause no surprise. Both corporate-controlled organisations, with linked membership, they shared the same aim: increasing the globalisation of their wealth and power. Certainly, the Bilderberg with its total lack of any democratic accountability, must be in agreement with the Trilateral Commission’s declaration (published in their The crisis of Democracy) that what the West needs most ‘is a greater degree of moderation in democracy’.
An examination of the list of bankers involved in these bodies reveals that, of the banking organisations, the Banks for International Settlements (BIS) is the one of prime importance on the international scene – not only because of its prestigious membership (embracing as it does the head bankers of the leading industrial nations) – but also because of the significance of its links with other groups. This article will focus on it, at the expense of the other better-known banking institutions, for two reasons: its prime ranking in the international hierarchy; and the fact that so little knowledge of it is in the public domain.

Summary: A U.S. congressman has had a slip of tongue about Obama’s new health legislation, saying it has taken many years and will still take some time to get the necessary legislation through in order to control people. Behind this is that this legislation requires the implantation of a chip with information abouti.a. individual medical data, to be implanted in everybody, thus enabling the regime to control and influence every one. Obama has recruited 16,500 armed officers to ensure that each rule is observed. Now the Europol has become an EU agency and has been given enlarged and vaguely defined remit to go after heavy internet crimes such as racism, xenophobia, criticism of the EU’s false claims about global warming caused by anthropogenic CO2 emissions. The Europol will take note of people’s behavioural data, including lifestyles and routines, movements, places visited, tax positions, DNA, political, religious or philosophical beliefs, union memberships and data concerning health or sex life. “This reminds creepily about the Gestapo. Nottingham, England, has just undergone a massive police raid on youngsters aged 13-24 years – with nude scanners, etc. to combat knife criminality. British researchers have now developed the nearly perfect lie detector that can read brain currents and thereby study people’s memories – having us all arrested for precrimes not committed. Politicians have explicitly wanted mass immigration to “radically change our societies.” They have certainly done so – and achieved what they wanted: an excuse for a European police state after Gestapo´s pattern.

In the Swiss newspaper Zeit Fragen, Professor Dr. Eberhard Hamer from Germany asks, “How Sovereign is Europe?”
He examines the issue and concludes that Europe has little, if any, sovereignty.
Professor Hamer writes that the sovereign rights of Europeans as citizens of nation states were dissolved with the coming into force of the Lisbon Treaty on Dec. 1, 2009. The rights of the people have been conveyed to a political commissariat in Brussels. The French, Germans, Belgians, Spanish, British, Irish, Italians, Greeks, and so forth, now have “European citizenship whatever this may be.”
The result of aggregating nations is to reduce the political participation of people. The authority of parliaments and local councils has been impaired. Power is now concentrated in new hierarchical structures within the European Union. European citizenship means indirect and weak participation by people. Self-rule has given way to authoritarian rule from top to bottom.

After an annual meeting of the Bilderberg Club in May 2009, the establishment of the global management system of institutions seemed to have been given a boost, repeating the plots of American apocalypitc blockbusters.
As soon as the financial top had opted for a lingering crisis, global managers were instructed to work in two major ways: first, to invent a myth about the danger of swine flu pandemic (in order to take control of the national healthcare systems and reorganize the World Health Organization (WHO) into a global healthcare ministry) and impose a threat of global warming to gain control of world natural resources and introduce a unified ‘green’ tax (alongside with creation of a new sub-national managing body- an international ministry of ecology).
Both tasks aim to intimidate the population and thus substantiate any policies undertaken by international organziations. Chairman of the Board of Governors ‘British Petroluem’, Peter Suterlan, once frankly admitted that he would like to impose fear of global warming in order to increase taxes and make people revise their lifestyle.
Climate Religion and Copenhagen II. Gaia Churches of Climatology. How Gorbachev, Rockefeller and Rothschild Terminate ChristianityPosted: December 8, 2009
Published: Dec. 08, 2009 – Euro-med.dk
Summary: The Copenhagen Conference on an alleged global warming has a strong religious / apocalyptic element, since it is driven by fanatical, hysterical NGOs with such force that it puts politicians under pressure – as do the globalist organizations like the EU and the UN. The religion is a cult of Mother Earth, Gaia of the ancient Greeks, with Luciferian notions of human divinity, and that God is nature (pantheism). After 40 years of corrosive mental hygiene not only people – but also churches are widely dechristianized. So many are joining this pagan religion that does not have room for Christ as the saviour of man from death. Instead, they worship his Creation – will even introduce more dead rituals, such as the blessing of animals, which allegedly will also be resurrected: “The power of resurrection is placed in our hands,” say these crazy priests. The morals of the Gaia religion are not Christ’s Commandments – but those of Lenin´s through Gorbachev’s “Earth Charter”, the sustainability ideology. In evidence of unity within this new world religion churches in North America and Northern Europe will ring their bells in alarm for Creation by 350 strokes each – in a relay from Svalbard to Copenhagen through Norway and Sweden. 350 strokes, because the trickster, James Hansen of NASA´s GISS, claims without substantiation that any atmospheric CO2 concentration above 350 parts per one million is dangerous. Not surprising that an English court has called the green movement a religion. The Catholic Church wholeheartedly joins the pagan Gaia religion, which is closely related to the Pope’s Interfaith Movement – an offshoot of Rockefeller’s United Religions Initiative, the tool to appease peoples in his world state.

The basic flaw of the present financial system is that the banks create money as a debt, charging interest on the money that they create. The obligation for the debtor countries to repay the banks money that the banks did not create, money that does not exist, brings about unrepayable debts. The Financiers know quite well that it is impossible for these countries to repay their debts, that the present financial system is defective at its base, and that it can only bring about crises and revolutions. But this is exactly what they want!

Last year, ExxonMobil donated $7 million to a grab-bag of public policy institutes, including the Aspen Institute, the Asia Society and Transparency International. It also gave a combined $125,000 to the Heritage Institute and the National Center for Policy Analysis, two conservative think tanks that have offered dissenting views on what until recently was called—without irony—the climate change “consensus.”
To read some of the press accounts of these gifts—amounting to about 0.00027% of Exxon’s 2008 profits of $45 billion—you might think you’d hit upon the scandal of the age. But thanks to what now goes by the name of climategate, it turns out the real scandal lies elsewhere.

The Ukraine Government has declared a state of emergency and medical examiners describe results of autopsies on dead patients in chilling terms that recall the Black Death descriptions from the Fourteenth Century in Venice. While everyone is calling it “Swine Flu” and the WHO using it to spread their panic and untested vaccines, there is strong evidence that the deaths—almost all from pulmonary conditions—are from a rising incidence of Tuberculosis (TB). Now a Cambridge University study shows that there is a close correlation between rise in TB and the severe austerity measures that go with IMF loans. Are the Ukraine ‘Black Death’ cases the result of Ukraine’s IMF loans?

The new disease originating in the Ukraine and slowly spreading through Europe is said to be very similar to the 1918 flu that killed millions. Reports claim the pneumonic plague is a combination of three different types of flu strains. It’s being called black lung because in x rays of victims their lungs are black.
The President of Ukraine said “People are dying. The epidemic is killing doctors. This is absolutely inconceivable in the 21st Century. We have sent the analysis to Kiev. We don’t believe its H1N1 swine flu. Neither do we know what kind of pneumonia it is.”

Herman Van Rompuy, the first President of the European Union, recently announced during his installment that 2009 was the first year of global governance. Indeed, 2009 has seen major steps towards global governance. The establishment has also taken severe blows this year, which will be discussed shortly. Pascal Lamy, Director General of the World Trade Organization and frequent attendee of secret Bilderberg meetings, sees the European Union as a testing ground for the machinery of international governance. In a speech in Italy on November 9th, Lamy stated that the EU model should be used on a global scale.
World Governance Architects I: The Influence of the Bilderberg Bankers on the EU and The US Mentioned in the ParliamentsPosted: November 21, 2009
Published: Nov. 21, 2009 – Euro-med.dk
Summary: So far, the one-world government protagonists managed to cover up their plot by simply saying “Pth! Conspiracy theory,” although their groups have long been professing their quest to rule the world (world governance). Now in the EU Parliament, Italian MEP, Mario Borghezio, pointed out the farce which preceded the occupation of the office as the EU’s first permanent president: Rompuy first had to be examined by the Bilderbergers to have their seal of approval. So had the U.S. presidential candidates, Obama and Clinton, in 2008. Already in 1987, Senator Jesse Helms in the US Senate pointed to the great power exerted by named secret societies – including Bilderberg – to promote their New World Order, world governance, which Mr Barroso, Gordon Brown, Sarkozy, and now the new EU President Rompuy, too etc.. are talking so much about.
Daniel Estulin is probably the only uninvited person to attend a Bilderberg meeting, in 2005. He calls the Bilderbegers and their partne organizations (later) the world’s shadow government that threatens to make serfs of us, displace the nation state and plunder the planet for their own benefit. They will create an international identity and a universal set of “values”, perform sophisticated mind control, enforce their particular values by means of a world army, namely NATO, and create perpetual war, until everything is pax bilderbergica. They will reward their henchmen and destroy opponents. Their power is based on their control of the world´s money.

Despite their reputation for ’empiricism’, British academics have tended to treat political power by means of abstract concepts rather than empirical information about the actions of determinate individuals and groups (e.g. Giddens, 1984, 1985; Scott, 1986). After a brief efflorescence of empirical studies of the so-called ‘Establishment’ in the early 1960s, sociologists in Britain became diverted from empirical investigation of power, as the study of national and international power-structures became conducted under the aegis of increasingly abstract theoretical categories derived from Marxism, and in particular by a wave of concepts based on Poulantzas’s ‘structuralist’ critique of Miliband, and was followed by ever more esoteric discussions of the ‘theory’ of the state (e.g. Jessop, 1990), culminating in the hegemony of a post-Marxist version of Gramsci’s conception of ‘hegemony’ – in which ‘struggle’ is posited without any identifiable human beings as its active protagonists, and with the stakes reduced to ideas rather than concrete interests.
This was in sharp contrast with the USA, where the impetus of C. Wright Mills’s pioneering study of the network of interests involved in the Cold War (Mills, 1956) was continued by a flourishing group of scholars. There has been nothing in Britain of comparable scope or detail to the work conducted in the USA by G. W. Domhoff, Thomas Dye, Mark Mizruchi or Noam Chomsky, etc.
The present article is concerned with one specific facet of American power-structure research which, I believe, has important implications for the study of power in the UK. This is the subject of power-elite networks and forums, conceptualised as arenas for the conduct of intra-capitalist and inter-corporate strategic debates and long-range social planning, from which wider ‘democratic’ interference is carefully excluded.
