Bilderberg Oil Tax Could Cost Billions
President So Far Refuses to Rule Out Tax on U.S. Consumers
By James P. Tucker Jr.
Bilderberg advanced its campaign for a global tax imposed by the United Nations at the recent Group of Eight summit in Gleneagles, Scotland, but the Bush administration blinked.
The Bilderberg Group is the shadowy cabal, which takes its name from the hotel in Holland where it first met in 1954. This confab meets annually at various locations around the world, always in extreme secrecy, often at resorts controlled by either the Rockefeller or Rothschild families.
Such global tax proposals have been pending before the UN for more than three years while the mainstream media collaborates in a cover up. Bilderberg wants people to learn about the tax only after it is imposed. Annex II of the Gleneagles G-8 communique reveals that the United States agreed to create a UN working group to consider “innovative financing mechanisms” to “help deliver and bring forward the financing needed to achieve the Millennium Development Goals” designed to throw more money at world poverty.
Among the “financing mechanisms” to be considered is a “solidarity contribution on [international] plane tickets.”
This global tax proposal, along with a per-barrel tax on oil, have been on the Bilderberg agenda for years. French President Jacques Chirac said this “small levy” would produce at least $3 billion for the UN. Chirac is a Bilderberg luminary along with the leaders of Germany, Italy and Britain, who joined together in calling for the tax. The Bush administration showed no resistance to this power grab.
POUR ON THE GUILT
Bilderberg’s boys softened the United States up by pouring on guilt at Gleneagles. While the United States gives away more money than any other country on Earth, Bilderberg argued at Gleneagles that it should be much more—0.7 percent of gross national income instead of .115 percent.
Bilderberg’s UN lackeys do not count the fact that the United States pays one-quarter of the UN’s annual $2 billion operating budget—more than all the flag-spitting African nations combined— as “aid.” Nor do they count the billions—one-third—of the UN’s “peacekeeping missions” in calculating that this country “owes” $13 trillion (yes, trillion).
There is hope. The House has approved, by an overwhelming margin, a proposal by Rep. Henry Hyde (R-Ill.), chairman of the International Relations Committee, to make future U.S. payments to the UN contingent on its adopting a set of sensible and wide-ranging reforms.
