As in the past, their identities and a description of the programs are closely guarded by officials of the San Francisco-based Bohemian Club. Continue reading

RT is covering the meeting near Barcelona and has spoken to Daniel Estulin, author and investigative journalist, who recently revealed his findings about the Bilderbergs to the European Parliament.

(C4L) – With a faltering economy, multiple wars, and the approaching demise of the dollar’s reserve status, there are more than enough problems to keep politicians in Washington working day and night.

Here’s a quotation that should awaken every American.
The enormous gap between what US leaders do in the world and what Americans think their leaders are doing is one of the great propaganda accomplishments of the dominant political mythology. (Michael Parenti, political scientist and author)
The current health care “debate” shows how far gone representative government is in the United States. Members of Congress represent the powerful interest groups that fill their campaign coffers, not the people who vote for them. Continue reading
“In a little time [there will be] no middling sort. We shall have a few, and but a very few Lords, and all the rest beggars.” R.L. Bushman
“Rapidly you are dividing into two classes–extreme rich and extreme poor.” “Brutus”
Americans think that they have “freedom and democracy” and that politicians are held accountable by elections. The fact of the matter is that the US is ruled by powerful interest groups who control politicians with campaign contributions. Our real rulers are an oligarchy of financial and military/security interests and AIPAC, which influences US foreign policy for the benefit of Israel. Continue reading
Since the time The United States of America was established its independence almost 235 years ago, the way that citizens view their government has changed significantly. Initially the government was intended to serve the people; whereas, in modern times, a large majority of Americans accept the role of government as a force that we have no control over accept once every 4 years when we elect a president. Otherwise, most Americans pass through their everyday lives watching the news and the decisions of their elected officials without making any sort of attempt to influence the actions of their elected officials — who were put in place in order to serve us, the people.

(C4L) – Unbeknownst to us, our lives are filled with messages that have a profound effect on our emotions, beliefs, values, and behaviors. These messages can be as obvious as a tornado siren in Kansas or as secretive and stealthy as the viruses and bacteria that invade your biological organs. What is guaranteed is that, for good or evil, the message never ends, and its impact is powerful! Continue reading

“The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite.” – James Madison, “Federalist No. 45,” Jan. 26, 1788
Last week, with the blessing of Bush and most of the U.S. Congress, the robber banker barons threw gasoline onto a bonfire. The financial Mt. Vesuvius hasn’t blown yet, but it will, and what was done last week and most likely through today, will be horrific. America has crossed the Rubicon.
War in the Caucasus is as much the product of an American imperial drive as local conflicts. Continue reading
