Will Globalists Cap Soaring Gas Prices?
By James P. Tucker Jr.
Bilderberg intensely discussed an issue crucial to all inhabitants on Earth: Is it time to end the spiraling price of oil? Bilderberg started it and Bilderberg can end it. In 2005, when oil cost $40 a barrel, Bilderberg called for the price to gradually rise to $150 (AFP, May 25, 2005).
Other major topics included: Would the United States get help from Europe if it attacks Iran? How should Bilderberg deal with the Ron Paul Revolution?
This is related to the problems of gaining approval of “free” trade agreements to establish an “American Union” throughout the Western Hemisphere because of Paul’s “nationalism,” an obscene word in the Bilderberg dictionary.
If Bilderberg halts the rise in oil prices, it will be for selfish reasons of profit, not tender concern for one billion people—one-seventh of the Earth’s population—left starving by soaring oil prices.
“Are we reaching the point of diminishing returns?” a speaker asked.
“People who switch from gas hogs to fuel-efficient, small cars are not going to do an instant about-face. And those who convert to public transportation, many of them, are going to stick with the train or bus. We have seen many middle-class families, who grudgingly accepted $3 a gallon, choose to stay home instead of driving to the beaches or mountains.
They’re calling them ‘staycations.’ We all take the long view of history. Will forcing gasoline prices even higher increase profits in the long term? Ford has already shut down production of big cars and has many SUV types it can’t give away. Ford will not retool “overnight.” (Even as he spoke, oil prices reached another record high of more than $139 a barrel and a gallon of regular gas jumped, on average, above $4.)
One pointed out that Europeans have long paid much more for gasoline, up to $10 a gallon. “But we’re dealing with Americans here and they’re not only our largest consumer, but a different breed of cat in many ways,” the speaker responded to light laughter. There was more nattering but no direct dissent from his argument, offering hope that Bilderberg will act to prevent a bad situation from getting worse.
Most European and some U.S. Bilderberg boys expressed hope that President Bush will not attack Iran during his final months in office, although the administration’s propaganda machine is trying to condition the
public mind to accept another war. Defense Secretary Robert Gates was not on Bilderberg’s official list of participants, but he was positively identified arriving on Friday, June 6.
Gates gave the usual pitch about Iran having a nuclear potential and being a “threat” to all mankind. Gates noted that Shaul Mofaz, Israel’s former defense minister and a candidate for the job of prime minister, told the Hebrew-language newspaper Yediot Ahronot that Israel will attack Iran if Tehran did not abandon its nuclear weapons program.
“Attacking Iran, in order to stop its nuclear plans, will be unavoidable,” Mofawz said.
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice also asked for an “understanding” of why Bush “can’t take anything (war) off the table when dealing with Iran.”
The Europeans were polite but firmly opposed an invasion. Wage a war for Israel? Can’t we care even a little bit about the plight of Palestinians in the occupied lands (referring to the
wanton killings of children and civilian women and men)? Where does Iran keep nuclear weapons, in Saddam Hussein’s tomb? Gates and Miss Rice were told the United States would “fly solo” in attacking Iran and there would be no help from NATO or European countries. At that same time, Iraq and Iran were having friendly talks on the subject of mutual security.
Ron Paul, the only presidential candidate who would immediately withdraw U.S. troops from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, is feared and hated by Bilderberg for other reasons as well. First, Paul would bring troops home from 130 “peacekeeping” missions and use them to protect America’s borders. But there is much more about Paul that upsets Bilderberg boys and their brother group, the Trilateral Commission, which met in Washington (AFP, May 12, 2008).
While Bilderberg is confidant it can control the presumed major-party candidates, Sens. John McCain (RAriz.) and Barack Obama (D-Ill.), they are concerned about the “damage” Paul will inflict on the long-term goal of world government. The fact that the Ron Paul Revolution is giving the young generation a “political education” that will go beyond the presidential campaign and into the years ahead strikes fear and loathing in Bilderberg hearts. Even as they were being denounced, young Ron Paul supporters were protesting Bilderberg outside the closed gates of the posh Westfields Marriott near Washington Dulles International Airport in Chantilly, Va.
Young supporters of Ron Paul were heavily represented among more than 100 patriots at the palace gate. It was in response to this gathering, which included megaphones, TV and broadcast cameras, that Bilderberg felt pressured into coughing up its normally secret list of participants and agenda.
But the fear that Paul is creating new generations who will fight for national sovereignty and against the New World Order has Bilderberg upset. Bilderberg is demanding that nations in the Western Hemisphere “pool their sovereignty” and create an “American Union.” It is to start with a “North America Free Trade Zone” that would eliminate borders between the United States, Mexico and Canada. (Bilderberg is behind on this project; in the mid-1990s they were confident it would be accomplished by the year 2000.)
Bilderberg’s discussion of “cyber terrorism” raised the ominous prospect of babies having microchips inserted into their bodies. “Terrorists” are recruiting “young, white men with blonde hair and blue eyes” to escape detection before they bomb planes and ground sites, one said. Another said the idea is “marketable” because soon people throughout the world would be able to board airplanes and pass through ground security quickly because the chips would immediately identify terrorist threats.
But, for this reason, the chips would have all your personal data to be instantly compared at a global data bank. The chip will also be “marketed” as a safety valve. Suppose, for example, you are struck by a car and taken to the hospital unconscious and in critical condition. Your microchip will provide the physician with critical, life-saving information, such as any prescription medications you are taking and your complete medical history. You may survive to live under the constant gaze of Big Brother.
