Reflection on The World Government
By Fidel Castro
Cuban Revolution leader Fidel Castro said that in a recent reflection he wrote a couple of days ago in referring to an article published by the Cuban journalist Randy Alonso, the host of the national TV program “The Round Table”, about a meeting that was held at Dolce Hotel in Barcelona he was referring to writer Daniel Estulin. “A total of 475 pages, 20 lines each, would be awaiting my review of the fantastic story narrated by the aforementioned author", added Fidel.
In a recent reflection I wrote a couple of days ago –on August 15- in referring to an article published by the Cuban journalist Randy Alonso, the host of the national TV program “The Round Table”, about a meeting that was held at Dolce Hotel in Barcelona whose aim was to discuss what he describes as ‘World Government’, I wrote: “…other honest writers were following the news that managed to leak out from the strange encounter. Someone much more informed than they has been on the trail of these events for many years.”
I was referring to writer Daniel Estulin. A total of 475 pages, 20 lines each, would be awaiting my review of the fantastic story narrated by the aforementioned author if any of the participants in that meeting dared to deny its presence there of its participation in the events described in the book.
The most that could fit in this Reflection –which I will divide into two Parts, so that it is not too long- are a number of paragraphs that I selected, which give an idea of the fabulous book entitled “Los secretos del Club Bilderberg” (The secrets of the Bilderberg Club). In that book, Estulin tore the big gurus to shreds: Henry Kissinger, George Osborne, the executives of Goldman Sachs, Robert Zoellic, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, Pascal Lamy, Jean Claude Trichet, Ana Patricia Botín, the chairpersons of Coca Cola, France Telecom, Telefónica de España, Suez, Siemens, Shell, British Petroleum, and other similar politicians and financial tycoons.
Estulin starts by the roots:
“For an unprecedented two Sundays in a row, on the Ed Sullivan Show - as was narrated by Donald Phau in his article The Satanic Roots of Rock-,over 75 million Americans watched the Beatles shake their heads and sway their bodies in a ritual which was soon to be replicated by hundreds of future rock groups.”
“The man in charge of making Americans ‘like’ The Beatles was Walter Lippmann himself. The Beatles, the most parodied group whose songs have had the highest number of versions in the history of music, were placed before the American audience so that they could be discovered.”
The title of one of the first epigraphs is “Entra Theo Adorno” (Theo Adorno Makes His Entrance).
“The responsibility of drawing up a social theory of rock-and-roll fell to the German sociologist, musicologist and composer Theodor Adorno, ‘one of the most important philosophers of Frankfurt’s Social Research School…’ Adorno was brought to the United States in 1939 to head the Princeton Radio Research Project whose aim was to control the masses. This project was financed by the Rockefeller Foundation and founded by one of the men who David Rockefeller trusted: Hadley Cantril…”
“In fact, the Nazis had made an intensive use of radiophone propaganda as an instrument for brainwashing and had turned it into an integral part of the fascist regime. This was observed and studied by the Tavistock networks and it was widely used in all of their experiments. The aim of this project, as stated in Adorno's ‘Introduction to the Sociology of Music’, was to program a mass "musical" culture as a way to achieve mass social control…”
“‘Radio networks were converted into round-the-clock recycling machines that repeated the top forty hits.’”
“The Beatles came to the United States in February of 1964, when the civil rights movement was at its peak. The country was wracked by a profound national trauma and was recovering from the brutal assassination of President John F. Kennedy […] In the streets of the capital, the civil rights movement led by Dr. Martin Luther King organized a demonstration that was attended by more than half a million persons.”
“Between 1964 and 1966 the so called British invasion led to the emergence of a number of British rock singers and groups that became popular in the United States and besieged the American culture. […] By the end on 1964 it was evidenced that this “British invasion” had been well planned and coordinated.
“‘These recently created groups as well as their living styles […] became a new very visible ‘type’ (according to the Tavistock jargon), and it was not long before the new styles in clothing, hairdos and the use o language started to draw millions of American youths into the new cult. The American youth suffered a radical revolution without even knowing it […] and reacted in a wrong way against the manifestations of that crisis by resorting to the consumption of drugs of every sort –first marihuana and later on lysergic acid (LSD), a powerful drug that altered the state of mind of persons.’ […] At the MI6 headquarters in London and in the CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia, it could be taken for granted that the British Intelligence and its subsidiary, the US Office of Strategic Services (OSS), were directly involved in a secret investigation to control human behavior. Allen Dulles, the director of the CIA when that agency began MK-Ultra, was the OSS station chief in Berne, Switzerland throughout the early Sandoz research.”
“…Both in the United States and in Europe the big outdoor rock concerts were used to stop the increasing discontent among the population.”
“The offensive launched by Bilderberg-Tavistock led a whole generation down the yellow brick road of LSD and marihuana…”
“Aldous Huxley makes his entrance”
“Aldous Huxley, the grandson of Thomas H. Huxley, the founder of the Rhodes Roundtable group and the famous and eloquent biologist who helped Charles Darwin develop the evolution theory, was the high priest of the British Opium War.”
“Toynbee, an Oxford graduate […] was the British delegate to the Peace Conference held in Paris in 1919…”
“‘His tutor in Oxford was H. G. Wells, the director of the British intelligence during the First World War and spiritual father of the Aquarian Conspiracy. Aldous Huxley was one of the initiates in the ‘Children of the Sun’, a Dionysian cult joined by the children of the British Roundtable elite.’ His most famous novel “Brave New World” is a blueprint (ordered by several world councils) for an authentic future socialist world under a unique government or, as its Fabian mentor H. G. Wells described and used as a title of one of its popular novels, a blueprint for The New World Order…”
“In ‘Brave New World’ Huxley focused on the scientific method to keep all populations outside the minority elite under an almost permanent state of oppression and make them love their servitude. The main tools used to achieve that were some vaccines which altered the functions of the brain and the medicines that the State forced the population to consume. In Well’s opinion, this was not a conspiracy, but rather a ‘one-world brain’ which would function as a police of the mind.’”
“In 1937, Huxley moved to California where he worked as a script writer for MGM, Warner Brothers and Walt Disney, thanks to one of his contacts in Los Angeles: Jacob Zeitlin.” […] ‘Bugsy Siegel, the West Coast boss of the Meyer Lansky syndicate, was heavily involved in Warner Brothers and MGM.’”
“In fact, show business –production, distribution, marketing and publicity- are under the control of a mafia that results from the merging between organized crime and Wall Street high level con-men who are ultimately controlled by the all-mighty Bilderberg. Show business is designed like any other ‘business line’ run by Bilderberg and its henchmen.”
“Huxley at Work”
“In 1954, Huxley published an influential study about the expansion of consciousness using mescaline. The study was entitled ‘The Doors of Perception’ (1954), the first manifesto of the psychedelic drug cult.”
“In 1958 he gathered several essays he had written for ‘Newsday’ and published them under the title ‘Brave New World Revisited’ in which he described a society in which the ‘ruling class main objective was to prevent at any cost the governed from creating problems.’”
“He predicted that democracies would change their essence: the old and strange traditions –elections, parliaments, supreme courts of justice- shall prevail, but the substrate underneath would be that of a non-violent totalitarianism. […] Meanwhile, the ruling oligarchy and its well-trained elite of soldiers, police, and the manufacturers of ideas and manipulators of the mind would easily rule the world as they please. In fact, this description by Huxley perfectly fits in with the current situation.”
“On September 1960, Huxley was appointed visiting professor of the Centennial Carnegie at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Boston. He was there only around one semester, after which he was fired. ‘During his stay in that city, Huxley created a circle at Harvard…’”
“The public theme discussed by that circle or seminar in Harvard was religion and its meaning in modern world. […] In an article published in the magazine ‘The Campaigner’ on April of 1974 […] Michael Minnicino asserts the following: ‘Huxley established contact during this Harvard period with the president of Sandoz, which at the time was working on a CIA contract to produce large quantities of LSD and psilocybin (another synthetic hallucinogenic drug) for MK-Ultra, the CIA's official chemical warfare experiment’. Human beings were used as guinea pigs for its often lethal experiments which, on many occasions, included the use of LSD. […] Besides, the McGill University in Montreal, Canada, a higher education institution linked to Bilderberg, also carried out some experiments in the 1960’s as part of the MK-Ultra program, which were sponsored by John Rees, a Tavistock degenerate fascist who used children from local orphanages, whom he tortured and later on administered several LSD doses. […] According to recently released CIA documents (thanks to the Freedom of Information Act), Allen Dulles purchased over 100 million doses of LSD -- almost all of which flooded the streets of the United States during the late 1960s’, as stated by Minnicino in the aforementioned article.”
“‘Thousands of graduate students served as guinea pigs. Soon they were synthesizing their own 'acid'."
“‘…The overwhelming majority of anti-war protesters went into SDS (Students for a Democratic Society) on the basis of outrage at the developments in Vietnam. But once caught in the environment defined by the Tavistock Institute's psychological warfare experts, and inundated with the message that hedonism and the defense of the country was a legitimate alternative to "immoral war", their sense of values and their creative potential went up in a cloud of hashish smoke’, writes the author in the aforementioned monograph.”
“Creating the Counterculture”
“The open cultural ‘warfare’, although undeclared, against the American youth truly began in 1967, when the Bilderberg started to organize outdoor concerts to be able to pursue its objectives. By means of that secret weapon, they managed to draw more than four million youth into the so called ‘festivals’. Without knowing it, youth became the victims of a perfectly planned experiment that involved the use of drugs on a large scale. Hallucinogenic drugs […] whose consumption was promoted by The Beatles […] were distributed for free in those concerts. It was not long before more than 50 million of those who attended those concerts (who were then between 10 to 25 years old) came back home transformed into messengers and promoters of a new drug culture or what turned out to be known as ‘The New Age.’”
“The biggest concert of all times, the outdoor ‘Woodstock Music and Art Fair’, was described by ‘Time’ magazine as an ‘Aquarian festival’ and as ‘the biggest show in History’. Woodstock became part of the cultural vocabulary of a whole generation.”
“According to journalist Donald Phau, ‘in Woodstock nearly half a million youth gathered to be drugged and brainwashed on a farm. The victims were isolated, immersed in filth, pumped with psychedelic drugs, and kept awake continuously for three straight days, and all with the full complicity of the FBI and government officials. Security for the concert was provided by a hippie commune trained in the mass distribution of LSD. Once again, it would be the networks of British military intelligence which would be ‘the initiators’ with the help of the CIA, through its former director William Casey and his contacts with Sefton Delmer, of the MI6, whose contact, Bruce Lockhardt, was the MI6 controller for Lenin and Trotsky during the Bolshevik Revolution.”
“Another decade was yet to pass by before the counterculture became part of the American vocabulary. But the seed of what was a titanic and secret project to turn US values upside down were planted then. Sex, drugs and rock-and-roll, big demonstrations all over the country, hippies, drug addicts who dropped from school, Nixon’s presidency and the Vietnam War were tearing up the very fabric of the American society. The old and the new were on a collision course and no one realized that this conflict was part of a secret social plan designed by some of the most brilliant and diabolic persons in the world…”
“The Aquarian Conspiracy”
“ ‘In the spring of 1980 –as was written by Lyndon LaRouche in DOPE INC.-, a book called "The Aquarian Conspiracy" became famous (more than one million copies were sold and it was translated into ten different languages). It put itself forward as a manifesto of the counterculture.’ […] “The Aquarian Conspiracy” declared that it was time for the 15 million Americans involved in the counterculture to join in bringing about a radical change in the United States. In fact, this book was the first publication oriented to the bigger audience that bet on the teamwork concept –which was considered to be the most virtuous, and was quickly promoted by the management ‘gurus’.”
“The author, Marilyn Ferguson, stated that while she was outlining a book still untitled about the new emerging social alternatives, she thought about the peculiarities of this movement, its atypical leadership, the quiet intensity of its followers and its improbable successes.”
“In a conference in 1961, Aldous Huxley described this police state as ‘the ultimate revolution’: a ‘dictatorship without tears’ in which people love their servitude’.”
“Zbigniew Brzezinski, President Carter’s National Security advisor, founder of the Trilateral Commission and member of the Bilderberg Club and the CFR expressed identical ideas in his fascinating book ‘Between Two Ages: America’s Role in the Technotronic Era’, written under the auspices of the Communism Research Institute of Columbia University and published by Viking Press in 1970.
“Without relying on violent repression, they designed a complex set of actions in order to create a ‘peaceful citizen’ for the New World Order. […] They also supported new concepts such as ‘emotional intelligence’, which is the ability of loving oneself and relating appropriately to others. […] A third way to turn this ‘industrial citizen’ into a ‘peaceful citizen’ is a big marketing campaign to grant a huge social recognition to those who cooperate with the NGO’s, as I explained in my first book La verdadera historia del Club Bilderberg (The true story about he Bilderberg Club).”
According to Harmon:
“’Once softened up [the United States] was now deemed ripe for the introduction of drugs (especially crack and heroin) and the beginning of an era which was to rival the prohibition in scope and the huge amounts of money to be made’”.
“It is worth mentioning that long fragments of the three thousand pages of the ‘recommendations’ given to the recently elected Ronald Reagan in January of 1981 by the CFR were based on excerpts from the report “The Changing Images of Man” by Willis Harmon.
“On December 8 of 1980, under a full moon night, John Lennon was shot dead by a man named Mark Chapman. It is quite unlikely that we could some day get to know whether Mark Chapman was a victim of an artificially induced model psychosis, a murderer like the ‘Manchu candidate’ sent by Tavistock, the CIA and the MI6 to silence Lennon, who turned out to be ever more difficult to control.”
“MTV: The perfect brainwashing machine.”
“MTV, the music television, makes its entrance.”
“MTV, a commercial TV channel specially for rock and music videos, which was invented and directed by Robert Pittman, aimed at the youth and teenagers, was founded on August 1 of 1981. Today it is part of the Viacom Empire (known as CBS Corporation, whose Chairman and Director-General, Sumner Redstone, is a full member of the CFR and whose media group is part of the Bilderberg Club). In order to reach out to the young people without the society being aware of the deceit, it was necessary to ‘create a counter-institution that would preach values contrary to those which prevailed in the society.’ That is precisely what MTV does. But for such an effort to be successful –according to L. Wolfe- it is necessary to neutralize the positive influence exerted by parents and the school, or at least to weaken such influence.”
“’The model for that [MTV] were the theatre shows put up by the pre-Nazi Richard Wagner, in which the audience was led into a sort of ecstasy that was later on deliberately used by the Nazis when organizing their own symbolic celebrations, such as the meetings in Nuremberg.’ The brainwash specialists who created MTV were very much aware of its effect. In a book written about that TV network, ‘Rocking Around the Clock’, it is stated that MTV ‘hypnotizes more than any other [TV network] because it is about a series of short texts that keep us in a continued state of emotion and expectation…We remain trapped by the continued hope that the next video would please us at last. Seduced by the promise of immediate satisfaction, we keep on consuming those short texts endlessly.’”
“During the four minutes any music video approximately lasts (the Tavistock scientists determined that four minutes was the maximum interval during which any involuntary subject was capable of receiving the messages contained in the very programs), ‘an artificial reality in the form of ‘counterpoints’ gets inserted into the human consciousness and replaces cognitive reality…’”
“ According to Walter Lippmann, if persons meditate about this process, maybe it would come to an end’, but he concludes that the number of illiterate, weak, acute neurotic, undernourished and frustrated individuals is so big that there are enough reasons to believe more than we generally believe. Thus, the process is made available to people who, from a mental point o view, are either children or barbarians, whose lives are a complete mess, who prefer simple contents with great popular appeal…’ […] In his book ‘Crystallizing Public Opinion’, Edward Bernays stated that the average citizen was the most efficient censor in the world, and that his own mind was the biggest barrier that separates him from facts.”
“The audiences that suffer brainwashing only entertain the illusion that they still keep the ability to choose, just as much as drug addicts believe they can control their addiction, and not the other way around. Ann Kaplan said MTV has been designed thanks to an ever greater knowledge about the methods of psychological manipulation. […] The daily TV consumption average had increased non-stop since the invention of television. Therefore, by the midst the 1970’s it became the most time-consuming daily activity only second to sleep and work –almost six hours a day. Ever since then, after the creation of VCR’s, this figure has increased much more. School children spent almost as much time watching TV as they spent sleeping.”
“Emery said that according to the Freudian brainwashing terminology, persons watching a music video are under an induced state that is quite similar to sleeping. The reiterated appearance of colors and brilliant images that overwhelm sight help them go –or induce them- into that kind of state, while the pulsatile and vibrant rhythm of rock has a similar effect on the ears.’ This is not only the era of television; this is also an era conditioned by television. This is an era of uneasiness, discontent, and frustration, against no one and many at the same time –obviously in a context in which television is omnipresent.”
“The sinister cliques and the Bilderberg lobbyists, the clandestine spheres of influence and the conscious and intelligent manipulation of organized habits are the most recent expression of a deeper manipulation campaign to install a world government that knows no borders and is not accountable to anyone but its own self.”
“…the main successes sold at will to a demoralized population in favor of the fanatical fundamentalism of a group of men that is not accountable to anyone and hope to attain absolute power at the expense of the dignity of men of modern times, who have been denigrated, humiliated and despised by the combined powers of the Bilderberg-CFR-Tavistock manipulation and brainwashing apparatus and its team of scientists, psychologists, sociologists and scientists of the new science (New Age, Mysticism, among others), anthropologists and fascists determined to recreate a new Roman empire.
“First there were Edward Berneys and Walter Lippmann. Then there were Gallup and Yankelovich. Later it was Rees and Adorno, Aldous Huxley and H. G. Wells, Emery and Trist, followed by the drug culture and the Aquarian Conspiracy, an alleged ‘humanist’ ideal in favor of the old culture, peppered with a pinch of human freedom instead of what it really is: an intelligent way of degrading persons until they become mere farm animals, denying them the originality of human consciousness and the possibility for them to immediately understand each other anywhere without translation.”
“The New Age will be a Dark Age. It will mean the premature death of a little more than half of the population; that the biggest achievements of humankind will be deliberately consigned to oblivion. That is the totalitarian ideology promoted by the New World Order, determined to rule the world even over our dead bodies. […] Why is it worth defending our civilization? Why a system based on freedom is better than the tyrannies that today subdue much of our planet? To some, the answers to these questions are evident; but to many, they are not.”
“How and why did Bilderberg organize the war in Kosovo?”
“This time it was The Balkans turn. The ‘master plan’ was conceived during a meeting held in 1996 among the Bilderberg Club members in King City, a small and luxurious enclave some 20 kilometers far from the Canadian city of Toronto. […] The wars triggered by the members of the Bilderberg Club in Kosovo and the Balkans had a concrete purpose; drugs, oil, mineral resources and the advancement of the ‘global government’ cause.’”
“The United States and Germany had begun to support the secessionist forces in Yugoslavia after the collapse of Communism in the former Soviet Union when the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia refused to join the western countries’ orbit. John Pilger, a prize-winning Australian journalist devoted to investigating war conflicts wrote in ‘The New Statesman’ that ‘Milosevic was an ignorant and also a banker who was once considered an ally of the West, ready to implement ‘economic reforms’ according to the demands of the IMF, the World Bank and the European Union. He added that Milosevic, to his own disgrace, refused to give away his country’s sovereignty and that the empire did not expect less. According to the article written by Neil Clark, a journalist specialized in Middle East and Balkans affairs, at that moment, more than 700 000 Yugoslavian companies were collectively owned, and most were still controlled by the mixed committees made up by executives and workers, where only 5 per cent of the capital was private.”
“Sara Flounders, an activist and journalist very close to the Workers World Party, an international pacifist movement, wrote in an article that the credit conditions established by the IMF and the World Bank demand the disintegration of all public industries. She adds that this was the case for oil and natural gas in the Caucasus and the Caspian Sea, as well as in the diamond mines of Siberia. Sara states that whoever owns or has a dominant interest […] will be the one who will win the armed struggle that is being waged in Kosovo. She further added that NATO’s domination on the ground will place American companies in priority positions in terms of the ownership of those resources.”
“Originally, the Bilderberg members intended to ‘inflame’ the Serbs by chasing the war criminals they had sheltered and prosecuting them before a new International Court. The proud and experienced Serbs evaded this provocation by persuading the suspicious at the lowest level of the social scale to give in voluntarily. However, this was not enough. In order to infuriate the Serbs, the International Court of Justice at the Hague, controlled by the United States, resorted to secret renditions to incite war.”
“This could also explain why Richard Holbrooke, the US ambassador to the United Nations from 1999 to 2001, a member of Bilderberg and of the CFR and six times nominee to the Nobel Peace Prize, included a provision about Kosovo in the final agreement. What does Kosovo have to do with Bosnia? Nothing. But Holbrooke’s idea was to turn Bosnia into a testing ground for the future expansion of Bilderberg throughout the Balkans.”
“Looking for an excuse: William Walker makes his entrance”
“…according to John Laughland’s article ‘The Technique of a Coup d'État’, it was William Walker, member of the CFR and former ambassador to El Salvador, whose government was supported by the United States, the one who created the death squads. In 1985, Walker was assistant to the Undersecretary of State for Central America and a key operator in every attempt by the White House under Reagan to overthrow the Nicaraguan government. Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North, who was assigned to the National Security Council staff during the early days of 1981 -and fired on November 25, 1986- was the Regan administration official who was most deeply involved in the secret aid to the contras thanks to the proceeds from the arms sales to Iran.”
“According to legal records, Walker was the one in charge of putting up a fake humanitarian operation in an air base in Ilopango, El Salvador, which was secretly used to provide arms, cocaine, ammunitions and supplies to the mercenary contras that attacked Nicaragua”.
“Walker, who had distributed arms among the contras in Nicaragua and had now become a peace observer, declared with full fanfare before the international press that the Serbian police was to blame for ‘the most horrendous” massacre he had ever seen. The Serbs, who had, until then, skillfully avoided the provocations by NATO and Bilderberg, had succumbed. The alleged ‘massacre’ became a pretext to launch an intervention. On January 30, the NATO Council authorized the bombing. And Bilderberg ordered its Secretary-General, Javier Solana, to use the armed force to bring pressure upon the Serbian delegates and the ethnic Albanians at the ‘peace’ negotiations in France and force them to discuss a framework for Kosovo’s autonomy’”.
“An article published by The Washington Post on August 4 quoted a high official of the US Defense Department who indicated that there was only one thing that could bring about a change of policy, and said that he thought that if certain levels of intolerable atrocities were achieved, that could probably be the detonator.”
“As a useful historical reference, it is worth remembering that the Serbs were victims of the worst ethnic cleansing, just as the 200 000 or more Serbs who were killed in the region of Krajina in Croatia during the ‘Storm’ Operation supported by the United States in 1995; or the 100 000 or more Serbs who were killed in Kosovo by the Kosovo Liberation Army after NATO’s bombings. Needless to say, the International Court of Justice at the Hague, the legal mechanism of the New World Order, has done nothing to prosecute the perpetrators of such an atrocity.”
“They must have known that. Otherwise, what would have made the Crown keep an army in that region where there was nothing of value, except for the profitable opium trade? It was too expensive to keep armed men in such far away country. His majesty must have wondered why those military units were there’, as Dr. John Coleman wondered in ‘Conspirator’s Hierarchy: The Story of the Committee of 300”
Under the epigraph:
“History of US involvement in drug trafficking”.
“Contrary to what History books have taught us for years, the nefarious drug trafficking is not an exclusive territory of the criminal stratum, unless we mean by criminal stratum some of the most important families in the history of the United States, known as the Eastern Liberal Establishment, whose members rule that country from the oligarchy and through a system of parallel government known as Bilderberg Club…”
“Kosovo and heroin
“Two journalists, Roger Boyes and Eske Wright, in an article published on March 24, 1999 by ‘The Times of London’ stated that Albania, which plays a fundamental role in the money transfers to the Kosovars, is at the epicenter of the European drug trafficking…”
“Albania has become the European capital of crime. The most powerful groups in the country are organized criminals that use Albania to farm, process and store much of the illegal drugs destined to Western Europe…”
Fidel Castro's Reflection on The World Government (Part II)
Cuban leader Fidel Castro said that in Part II of this Reflection he has included quite a few lines of the final part of Daniel Estulin’s book. They explain his contempt against the hateful Bilderberg Club. “It is terrible to think that the intelligence and the feelings of children and youth in the United States could be mutilated in such a way“. “We have to struggle now to prevent them from being pushed into a nuclear holocaust“, he added.
Opium is grown in different regions of the world: South America; The Golden Triangle made up by Laos, Burma and Thailand; and an area known as the Golden Crescent made up by Afghanistan, Pakistan and Central Asia. Most of the opium poppy plants grow along a narrow mountainous area around 6 000 kilometers long that stretches from South Asia across Pakistan and Laos to Turkey.”
“By now it is clear that the Bilderbergers are not personally responsible for transporting drugs or laundering the financial proceeds resulting from such operations. The CIA is the one in charge of doing that…”
“…Neil Clark points out that Soros is not upset about the goal pursued by Bush –who intended to expand the Pax Americana and turn the world into a safer place for global capitalists like him-, but about the gross and coarse means resorted to by Bush to achieve that.”
“The Marshall Plan proposed for the Balkans is a mirage […] This plan, funded by the World Bank, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) as well as by private creditors will mainly benefit the mining, oil and construction companies and foreign debt will continue to grow well into the third millennium.”
“NATO military intervention” “The consolidation of NATO’s power in the southern part of Europe and the Mediterranean is also one more step towards the expansion of Bilderberg’s sphere of geopolitical influence beyond the Balkans and towards the area of the Caspian Sea, Central and Western Asia.”
“Travis’ ghost” “On the first week of November of 1999 I received what at first looked like a post card sent from Ladispol, a small town in the region of Lazio in Rome, near the Mediterranean coast.”
“March 30 of 1980 was the date when we officially left from the Soviet Union. While we were in Italy we settled in Ladispol, a small town that would be our home for the following year.”
“I went out into the streets. It was drizzling. Two little boys were delighted, jumping and splashing around from puddle to puddle, leaving the footprints of their shoes on the sidewalk. I crossed the elegant street under the storm clouds and opened the door of the pub that was right at the corner of my house. November 29 of 1999. What on earth did all of that mean? I read the text again. ‘I am doing fine. I wish you were here.’ Signed: Fashoda. Who on earth was this guy?”
“Fashoda was not a person, but a place! I could feel my heart pumping. November 29 of 1999 […] Suddenly I sat up on my seat. Fashoda!! Travis Read!!”
“Travis was a mugger whom I had met during the meeting of the Bilderberg Club in King City in 1996. He was an undisciplined and loathsome petty thief […] Travis was prone to arrests, and to be released almost as quickly.”
“Later on I learned that Travis Read had become a criminal to be able to work with criminals.”
“He was sent to Sudan through contacts that worked both for the CIA and for Canada’s National Police, the RCMP […] The details about his trip to Sudan were never revealed, but just like in 1989, that godforsaken place happened to attract the most inappropriate guys out of the most appropriate reasons.”
“I said to myself: If Travis wants to see me, this will become a big mess.”
“I should admit that when things went wrong, I always relied on the former Soviet officials. Something inherent to them made them distrust the West; they can’t be easily bought, contrary to what newspapers and press reports make people believe.”
“They were not the type of persons you would want to betray. I knew I was safe with them. My grandfather had risked his own life at the beginning of the 1950’s to save the lives of the parents of these men, who were KGB agents…”
“On November 27, late in the afternoon, my cell phone rang. Travis was calling. He was booked in at some ramshackle residence in the outskirts of Rome.”
“-Piazza della Repubblica, at five thirty in the afternoon –I interrupted.
“-I set the rules –shouted Travis.”
“- Do you want the information or not? –Travis asked.”
“-Not as badly as to let myself be killed – I said coldly.”
“Travis did not show up for the meeting. Around eight thirty in the evening we rushed to his residence -if that could be called a residence- holding our guns. The one-bedroom residence had been completely looted. Despite that we found no signs of struggle, blood stains or Travis Read dead body. As far as I know, no one ever heard of him again.”
“Every now and then Travis ghost appears in the darkest places of my memory; a morbid remembrance of the frailty and fallibility of the human spirit.”
This is the way Estulin concludes Chapter 3.
“Bilderberg and the secret war in Afghanistan”
“The reasons why wars erupt are rooted in the ideology contained in school text books: nations go to war for extremely long periods of time based on lies, as it has been evidenced by the First World War and every single conflict in the 20th century.
“The famous historian Edmund Morgan wrote the following: ‘History never repeats itself. It only seems like it does to those who don't know the details.’”
“The Caspian Sea and Central Asia basin are the keys to energy in the 21st century. Two thirds of the oil reserves are located in that region [...] In an article published by the ‘Oil & Gas Journal’ on October 9, 2001, James Donan stated that America wants the region to be under absolute control of the United States.”
“Madeleine Albright [the former Secretary of State during the Clinton Administration and one of the persons responsible for the war in Kosovo] said that working to shape up the future of the region was one of the most fascinating things that we could do, according to ‘Time’ magazine of May, 1998.
“The Gulf war allowed the Pentagon to establish several military bases in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and elsewhere.”
“As has been documented by Professor Michel Chossudovsky in his work ‘War and Globalization’, the GUUAM Alliance (made up by Georgia, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan and Moldavia) founded by NATO in 1999 is at the heart of the oil and gas reserves of the Caspian region. In this alliance, a leading role is played by Georgia, a US client State, where Mikhail Saakashvili removed President Edward Shevardnadze –former Foreign Minister of the Soviet Union- by means of a coup d’état arranged by the United States and portrayed as a popular and spontaneous uprising.”
“According to ‘Project Underground’ [...] former members of the Soviets, the KGB and the Politburo are taking advantage of the oil wealth, and so are a formidable collection of important personalities of the Cold War, most of whom come from George [H. W.] Bush’s cabinet. The players are the former advisors to Reagan, Bush and Clinton, such as James Baker III (former Secretary of State of Bush senior administration), Dick Cheney (Vice-president) and John Sununu (former Chief of Staff of the White House).”
“...Peter Sutherland (of British Petroleum), Queen Elizabeth II, from England (main shareholder of British Petroleum and head of the Committee of 300), are struggling over the control of oil resources and the corridors of the gas pipelines that come out of the Caspian Sea basin. In 1998, after the secret meeting held by the Bilderberg Club in Scotland, I reported to the independent media that NATO, following the orders of the Club that founded it, gave Russia a green light to bomb Chechnya, knowing that this would further increase hostilities between those two countries, whose mutual hatred dates back to more than three hundreds years ago.”
“The Iranian gas pipeline was not a mere business; it was a key component of a wider geo-strategic agenda: complete military and economic control over Eurasia (The Middle East and the former Soviet Republics of Central Asia). George Monbiot confirmed that in the newspaper ‘The Guardian’ of October 23 of 2001. He said that oil and gas are of no value if they were not transported. He added that the only sensible route both from the political and economic points of view was the one that went across Afghanistan...”
“After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Argentinean oil company ‘Bridas’, directed by his ambitious President, Carlos Bulgheroni, was the first to exploit the oil reserves in Turkmenistan, where there is one of the biggest natural gas reserves in the world. [...] Afghanistan is the shortest route to the Gulf to transport the Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan gas resources from Northern-Central and Western-Central Asia.”
“Bridas was astonished to see that UNOCAL approached directly the regional leaders and presented to them its own offer. UNOCAL created its own competing consortium, directed by the United States and sponsored by Washington, which included Delta Oil, from Saudi Arabia, together with Saudi Prince Abdullah and King Fahd.”
“According to Ahmed Rashid, the true influence of UNOCAL over the Taliban was based on the fact that its project was likely to be recognized by the United States, something the Taliban wanted to secure no matter the cost. [...] In the spring of 1996 the executives of UNOCAL took the Uzbek leader, General Abdul Rashid Dostum (a mass murderer responsible for the Dasht-i-Leili massacre on December 2001, when hundreds of Taliban prisoners were deliberately suffocated inside several truck metal containers while they were transferred by American and North Alliance soldiers to the prison of Kunduz, in Afghanistan) to Dallas to discuss the passing of the gas pipeline across their northern territories under the control of the North Alliance.”
“Competition between UNOCAL and Bridas, as was described by Rashid, started to reveal the competition that existed inside the Saudi royal family. In 1997 Taliban officials traveled twice to Washington and Buenos Aires to be praised by UNOCAL and Bridas.”
“Once again, violence would change the course of events. In response to the bombings of the US embassies in Nairobi and Tanzania attributed to Osama Bin Laden (although, according to French intelligence sources, the attack was perpetrated by the Mossad of Israel) President Bill Clinton shot cruise missiles against an empty shop both in Afghanistan and Sudan on August 20, 1998. At that time, the Administration broke diplomatic relations with the Taliban and the United Nations imposed sanctions.”
“During the rest of Clinton’s mandate, there was no official recognition of Afghanistan by the United States or the United Nations. No progress was achieved regarding the gas pipeline.
“By then, George W. Bush had entered the White House.
“During the last months of the Clinton Administration, the Taliban officially became a terrorist group. After almost one decade of fierce competition between the UNOCAL-CentGas Corporation, supported by the United States, and Bridas, from Argentina, no company had managed to sign an agreement to build a gas pipeline in Afghanistan [...]. George W. Bush resumed relations with the Taliban. And this should be no surprise, because both in 1998 and in 2000, ex President George H.W. Bush traveled to Saudi Arabia on behalf of the private entity ‘Carlyle Group’, the eleventh biggest Defense contractor in the United States, where he had a private meeting with the Saudi royal family as well as with the family of Osama Bin Laden, according to ‘The Wall Street Journal’ of September 27 of 2001.
“In one of the most surrealistic and Kafkaesque episodes of the events previous to 9/11, “The Washington Post” quotes Milt Bearden, a CIA agent who helped to create the Afghan mujahedines, when she said she felt sorry that the United States did not take time to understand the Taliban. She asserted that the US never heard what the Taliban were trying to say [...], that the US and the Taliban did not speak a common language; that the US said to the Taliban to hand over Bin Laden and the Taliban said the US should do something that could help them hand him over to the US. But there is much more to that.”
“In fact, relations between the Bush Administration and the ‘terrorist’ and leader of Al Qaeda, Osama Bin Laden, were never better.”
“The evidence of a war in Afghanistan, where multinational greed merges with the avarice and cruelty of the leading names in the oil industry (BP, Shell, Exxon, Mobil, Chevron, among others) is simply undeniable. It is scary to think that a godforsaken place controlled by terrorists could become a point where the interests of the Bush Administration, Bridas, UNOCAL, the CIA, the Taliban, Enron, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Iran, Russia and India converge”
Uder the epigraph "A cowboy in the White House", Daniel Estulin points out the following:
Bush formed his cabinet by calling in several personalities from the energy industry who had close links in Central Asia (Dick Cheney, of Halliburton; Richard Armitage, of UNOCAL; Condoleezza Rice, of Chevron) and was able to take office thanks to the generosity of the corporations with vested rights in the region, such as Enron.”
“The role of the Bush family in the oil policy of the Middle East and Central Asia and its strong links with the Saudi royal family and the family of Bin Laden have survived several generations.”
About how the Bilderbergers created the Yom Kippur war with the aim of globalizing oil.”
“The Bilderberg members do not leave any loose end. They do not work according to any five-year plan. They plan for a longer term. In the early 1970’s they designed a Plan B, an oil distribution plan which included the United States and another eleven important industrialized countries, and established a mechanism whereby, as Allen states, the oil produced within the US borders would be shared and allocated for the first time in the American history in case there is a new embargo on the oil from the Middle East.”
Epilogue of Chapter 4
“The 1973 ‘test’, prepared by the Bilderberg members, clearly shows that oil will be used as a control mechanism. The 1973 event was a warning to the American people and made them realize how much control could be exerted by foreign governments and multinational corporations on nations, as was expressed by David A. Rivera in ‘Final Warning: A History of the New World Order.”
Chapter 5 addresses the following topic:
“MATRIX: Data bases and the Total Information Awareness Program”
"It is usually much easier to reach an agreement if there are no listeners. It is not a question of secrecy, but of being able to act more efficiently"
NEIL KINNOCK European Union Commissioner and member of the Bilderberg Club
“The Total Information Awareness Program (TIA) of the Pentagon is a system that starts from an encoded phrase, and then gradually dissolves the highly valued individual liberties of America, enshrined in its Constitution, to benefit a global and totalitarian State. Most of the details about this gigantic espionage system continue to be a mystery. After the attacks on September 11 of 2001, TIA had become a surveillance network representative of a stronger trend that has emerged both in the United States and Europe: the seemingly inexorable move towards a society under surveillance.”
“The main axis of this Total Surveillance Network is a new and extraordinary modality called ‘data mining’ or discovery of knowledge, which is about the automated extraction of predictive information hidden in data bases.”
“ ‘Accurint’, which has displayed an unparalleled capacity to process billions of records per second, has already compiled the biggest accessible contact data registry in the world. Accurint looks through more than 20 billion records that range from recent house swaps to old addresses which date back to more than 50 years ago.”
“...When more information was requested the persons responsible at that company refused to reveal any more specific details about the nature and the sources of data .”
“According to Christopher Calabrese, Counsel to the American Civil Liberties Union's Technology and Liberty Program, MATRIX [...] turns every American into a suspect.”
“Associated Press has revealed that in January of 2003, the Governor of Florida, Jebb Bush, informed Vice-president Dick Cheney; Tom Ridge, who was about to be sworn in as secretary of the new Home Security Department and the director of the FBI, Robert Mueller about the secret project that will prove how the Security Forces could capture ‘terrorists’ using a software.”
“Furthermore, Iberia, the most important Spanish airline company, has been accused of giving out to the US government confidential information about its passengers…”
“According to an article published by Andy Sullivan in Reuters on March 17, 2004, the US is compelling airlines to surrender information about travelers.”
“Likewise, NASA also requested and received some confidential information about the traveling records of millions of Northwest Airlines clients, such as names, addresses, traveling itineraries, and numbers of credit cards for a similar data mining study […] The incidents have generated dozens of litigations. This was also a violation of its own policy.”
“As was declared by Jon Swartz to ‘USA Today’ on January 19 of 2004, Northwest Airlines is giving out to the government data about passengers.”
The author devotes one epigraph to the following topic:
“Private details for all to see”
“Commissioner Almunia, President Borrell and the President of the European Commission, Jose Manuel Barroso, another habitual Bilderberger, launched a huge campaign for the approval of the fundamental rights which supposedly are enshrined in the European Constitution. […] What Borrell, Almunia or Barroso have never said to good European citizens is that each and every one of these rights, according to Article 51, could be suspended if so required by the Union’s interest.”
“However, there is much more to say about the shameful evidence of betrayal by the European Commission regarding its own citizens.”
“European control on telecommunications: European Parliament vote to accept withholding of data and surveillance by security forces.
“Vote on the withholding of data of May 30, 2002 (In the former European legislation the PPE and PSE votes gathered 526 out of a total of 626 Euro-deputies).
“ ‘Statewatch’ and ‘Reporters sans frontiers’ were the only organizations that reported what turned out to be some decisions affecting hundreds of millions of Europeans.”
“Basically, the grandiloquence and the challenging attitude by the socialist regarding national and international laws are a farce. The alliance of the PPE and PSE groups at the European Parliament has evidenced that they support the demands of the European Union governments, instead of acting to defend the people and the rights of all citizens to privacy and civil liberties.”
“Javier Solana Madariaga, a key member of the Bilderberg Group, former secretary-general of NATO and secretary-general of the European Union Council/High Representative for Common Security and Defense Policy, supported a decision described by the International Federation of Journalists simply as ‘a summer time coup d’état’. Remember, reader, that personalities such as Javier Solana do no represent your interests or Spain interests.”
After that, Estulin documented everything in 16 more pages.
His book includes an epigraph entitled “My end.”
“Creative memory is the subtlest opponent of historians. The pretext of forgetting things prevails and distorts everything that we decide to remember openly. Human existence and the world seemed to be justified only as an esthetic phenomenon, which does not mean life just for the sake of it, but rather a sharp contrast between the moral interpretation of existence and the world.
“Amos Oz, who is probably the best known Israeli novelist, made this observation: ‘Wherever war is called peace, where oppression and persecution are referred to as security, and assassination is called liberation, the defilement of the language precedes and prepares for the defilement of life and dignity. In the end the state, the regime, the class or ideas remain intact where human life is shattered.’”
“If democracy is the government of the people, the secret objectives pursued by governments and sinister interest groups are incompatible with democracy. The very idea of clandestine spheres of influence within governments that launch secret campaigns against humanity is therefore alien to the notion of freedom and should be fought with vigorous determination, unless we are willing to replicate the fatal errors made in a not so far away past.”
“In an ever more dismembered society, there are some elements that emphasize what we share, what we have in common, in a straightforward manner and with dramatic intensity. Human dignity and a legitimate desire for freedom, something that could be immediately understood anywhere in the world without any translation, are some of the most valuable aspects of universal tradition. This deserves as much support as it can receive.
“Finally, if criticizing the arrogant, unreflecting and abusive aspects of a totalitarian society sometimes makes someone laugh at you and label you as an ‘anti-everything’, you should take this as an honorable distinction. Graham Greene hit the nail on the head when he said that writers should be ready to change sides at any moment, because their mission was to defend the victims, and victims change.
Finally he devotes eight and a half pages to the memory of his grandfather.
“That was the last time I saw him alive. He was an old man of regular strength, ninety six years of age. He used to sit on his dilapidated couch, looking through his oversized glasses, trying to meet my eyes but hardly able to recognize them. He was alive because he moved and talked, or rather because he made a superhuman effort to connect the letters, which spilled over deep inside the little consciousness he had left and stubbornly refused to get together to form coherent syntagms. During the final months of his long life, my grandfather, a man who used to express himself with great clarity, who loved humor and debate, literally lacked words. In a sort of act of ultimate cruelty, cancer took away his ability to speak before taking away his life.
“Holding in my hand an air ticket to go back to Spain, I dropped by his house to say goodbye. During my last visit we didn’t speak much. I could not find the appropriate words. I was out of breath and I found it hard to breathe because I knew I will never see him again. ‘Goodbye’ seemed to be a too simple and also too terrible expression.
“On the table in the lobby, resting against the wall, there was a picture of my grandparents, which was taken shortly after their arrival in Canada in 1983. My grandmother had passed away a little more than a year ago. My grandparent, who fell seriously ill at that moment, never managed to recover from the loss of a person he had so deeply loved for more than forty years.”
“Trying by all means not to break in tears, I keep on reminding myself that these pages are a vindication of honesty at the expense of cruelty and opportunity. The main subject here is not politics; neither is it an open criticism of totalitarianism. This is rather the heart beat of a man, and that is why I pay tribute to him. That is the reason why this should be read.
“My grandfather’s clinical death was established on April 18, 1995. Presumably this had been the last afternoon he was able to be himself, as Auden said when he described the day when Yeats died: ‘He became his own fans.’ He turned into a memory; he vanished into the depths of his name. This is one of the mysteries of death, which should make a slight difference for everybody, except for those very close to that person.”
“Like the rest of us, people die at least twice. They die a physical death and a conceptual death: when the heart stops beating and when they vanish into oblivion. The luckiest and the greatest are those whose second death is postponed significantly, almost indefinitely […] Telephone calls from all countries and imaginable regions of the Planet were received. This was a tribute to the infinite admiration that he, my grandfather, an ex KGB counter espionage agent, inspired in all those persons whose lives were influenced by him.”
“His grandfather was just a soldier out of many. He spent twenty five years defending the czarist empire, Alexander II and Alexander III. My grandfather followed the family’s military tradition. He took part in the Revolution, the Russian civil war and the two World Wars. While he was defending the citizens of Minsk in the early weeks of the Second World War, his whole family, eleven brothers and sisters, his father, his mother, and his grandmother who was 104 years old, were murdered by the Nazis in Karasy-Bazar, Crimea.”
“He lived a true life. He did not simply live life”.
“My grandfather had been married once before in 1930. He had three children. Then the war started. He fought in Belarus, he defended Brest, but he was forced to withdraw with whatever was left of the Red Army due to the advance of the Germans. Somehow, amid the ensuing chaos, he lost track of his family. A mother with three children, eight, five and three years old could not move as fast as the Red Army or the Nazi soldiers. They were captured by the Nazis, sent to a concentration camp and exterminated.
“The Second World War, just as I show in this book and as I have extensively described in my first book about the Bilderberg Club, was cleverly financed by the Rockefeller, the Loeb and the Warberg. Prince Bernhard, the founder of the Bilderberg Club, was also involved. He was a Nazi. Most of the members of the British royal family sympathized with the Nazis as was the case for most of the US ‘liberal’ Eastern Establishment, the plutocratic structure that controls the economic, political and social life of that country. Hitler, the beast, was created by those who secretly attend today the Bilderberg Club, the CFR, and the Trilateral Committee meetings. To all these people, History is an empty blackboard to defecate on despite the anguish of others. Could anybody blame me for feeling such a deep-seating contempt against Bilderberg and its homologues?”
“In my case, my grandfather continues to be my corner stone –my fellow traveler- even after his death. He is so much absent as he is present.
“Time and space are the tricks of a world wounded all around; the pile of residues which we call History, which also represents his successes. Those are also his successes. They, like time, preserve the magic that makes it disappear.
“I remember him mostly on his birthday. But to me this year is different. Age is an accumulation of life and losses. Adulthood is a series of crossed lines. I have trespassed a threshold. From now on, I am all by myself…”
In Part II of this Reflection I have included quite a few lines of the final part of his book. They explain his contempt against the hateful Bilderberg Club.
It is terrible to think that the intelligence and the feelings of children and youth in the United States could be mutilated in such a way.
We have to struggle now to prevent them from being pushed into a nuclear holocaust, we should help them recover as much as possible their physical and mental health and figure out the ways in which human beings could be freed forever from such a terrible fate.
