Gut die Hälfte der Geräte kann man bereits kaufen, der Rest soll in den nächsten zwei Jahren auf den Markt kommen.
Anders als Großkraftwerke, die durchschnittlich zwei Drittel der Primärenergie als Abwärme an die Umwelt verlieren, vereinen BHKW Heizkessel und Stromgenerator direkt beim Verbraucher und steigern den Wirkungsgrad auf über 90 Prozent. Etwa drei Viertel der gewonnenen Energie stellt ein BHKW thermisch für die Heizung oder das Warmwasser bereit, den Rest als elektrischen Strom. Für Einfamilienhäuser gilt eine elektrische Leistung von fünf Kilowatt als ausreichend. Und viele so genannte "Mikro-BHKW" sind nicht größer als ein Kühlschrank.
Die Hersteller arbeiten an unterschiedlichen technologischen Konzepten. Diesel- und Ottomotoren sind als Erzeuger für Strom und Wärme schon seit langem im Einsatz. Doch geschlossene Motorenkonzepte, bei denen die Verbrennung nicht im Kolbenraum, sondern außerhalb stattfindet, sind für solche Anlagen besonders geeignet.
Etwa der Stirling-Motor, der 1816 von dem Schotten Robert Stirling erfunden wurde. Über einen Wärmetauscher wird das Gas im Kolbenraum erwärmt, sodass es sich ausdehnt und einen Kolben bewegt, der wiederum einen Generator antreibt. Sobald das Gas abkühlt, pendelt der Kolben zurück. Dann beginnt der Kreisprozess von vorn. Obwohl der Stirling-Motor sehr verschleißfrei arbeitet, konnte er sich gegen die Konkurrenz lange Zeit nicht durchsetzen. Denn dort, wo die Abwärme der Motoren ungenutzt bleibt, beispielsweise bei Kraftfahrzeugen, sind Stirling-Aggregate zu teuer.

Trotz der enormen Korrektur rangiere China aber bei der Wirtschaftsleistung pro Person immer noch hinter den Top-100-Ländern, sagte Statistik-Direktor Li. "Vor uns liegt noch ein weiter Weg, bis wir zu den entwickelten Ländern aufgeholt haben."

Der Zuwachs von rund 237 Milliarden Euro resultiert zum Großteil aus der Neubewertung des bisher vollkommen unterschätzten Dienstleistungssektors. Dieser tertiäre Sektor hat nach den neuen Zahlen nun einen Anteil an der Wirtschaftsleistung von 40,7 Prozent. Bislang war das Amt von 31,9 Prozent ausgegangen. Der sekundäre Sektor, zu dem etwa Industrie, Produktion und Bergbau gehören, macht nun 46,2 nach bislang geschätzten 52,9 Prozent aus. Für den primären Sektor - Land- und Forstwirtschaft sowie Fischerei - ergibt sich ein Prozentsatz von 13,1 nach bislang genannten 15,2 Prozent.
Volkswirte gehen auf Grund der aktualisierten Basis davon aus, dass China im Jahr 2005 nun das Land mit der vierthöchsten Wirtschaftsleistung weltweit sein könnte und Frankreich sowie Großbritannien hinter sich lassen wird. Eine höhere Wirtschaftsleistung würden dann nur noch die USA, Japan und Deutschland haben.

Die ohnehin schon beeindruckende Wirtschaftsleistung Chinas ist noch höher als bislang errechnet. Die ökonomischen Daten wurden nach neuen Erhebungen nach oben korrigiert. Ergebnis: Das Bruttosozialprodukt war 2004 rund 237 Milliarden Euro größer als zuvor ermittelt worden war.

Peking - "Die aktualisierte Statistik zeigt, dass sie Wirtschaftsstruktur in China passabler und gesünder ist, als dies die vorherige Zahlen ausgesagt haben", sagte der Leiter des nationalen Statistik-Instituts, Li Deshui. Das Brutto-Inlandsprodukt des Landes im Jahr 2004 habe rund 1,65 Billionen Euro betragen. Das sind rund 237 Milliarden Euro beziehungsweise 16,8 Prozent mehr als bisher angenommen. Als Grund für die Korrektur wurden die Ergebnisse der ersten landesweiten Erhebung von Wirtschaftsdaten genannt.

In Jakarta habe ein CIA-Mann den Deutschen gesagt, "man wolle Seyam gern noch einmal haben", zitierte die Zeitung einen deutschen Sicherheitsexperten.

Caracas - "Wir haben auf nationaler und regionaler Ebene einen Ausnahmezustand", berichtete Zivilschutz-Leiter Antonio Rivero. Es sei ein Lkw gestohlen worden, der eine Kapsel mit hoch radioaktivem Material an Bord gehabt habe. Derzeit werde landesweit nach der Kapsel gesucht.
Ein leitender Mitarbeiter des Energieministeriums rief im Fernsehen die Diebe zur Rückgabe des gefährlichen Diebesguts auf. Von der Kapsel gehe eine potentiell tödliche Gefahr aus, erklärte er. Die Bevölkerung wurde aufgerufen, die Behörden zu informieren, falls jemand das radioaktive Material finde. Er wollte nicht ausschließen, dass es die Diebe lediglich auf den Lkw als Beute abgesehen hatten.
Die Kapsel enthält den Angaben zufolge Iridium-192 mit einer starken Gamma-Strahlung. Es ist ein Metall von hoher Dichte und hat eine Halbwertszeit von knapp 74 Tagen, während der es zu Osmium-192 und Platin-192 zerfällt und dabei radioaktive Beta- und Gammastrahlung freisetzt. Iridium-192 wird in der Industrie zur Prüfung von Metallen und in der Krebsmedizin für Bestrahlungen eingesetzt. Das silbrig-weiße Metall kommt meist in der Form von massiven Stäben oder Kügelchen vor.

Die Forscher verglichen 167 Gene von Menschen, Schimpansen, Makaken und Mäusen miteinander. Bei solchen Untersuchungen gilt: Je mehr Unterschiede ein bestimmter DNA-Abschnitt bei verwandten Arten aufweist, desto mehr Zeit ist seit ihren gemeinsamen Vorfahren vergangen.
Diese relative Zeitabschätzung muss dann mit Hilfe bereits bekannter Daten der Evolution verglichen werden. Kumar und seine Kollegen verwendeten dafür den Zeitpunkt, an dem sich die Affen der Alten Welt wie Paviane und Makaken vom jenem Stammbaum abgespalten hatten, der letztendlich zu Schimpansen und Menschen führte. Nach Untersuchungen an Fossilien hatte diese Abspaltung vor 24 bis 35 Millionen Jahren stattgefunden. Die genetischen Abweichungen, zu denen es seitdem gekommen ist, sind nach Angaben der Forscher etwa fünf Mal so groß wie die Unterschiede zwischen Schimpanse und Mensch. Demnach müssten sich deren Ahnen vor fünf bis sieben Millionen Jahren evolutionär getrennt haben.

20.Dec.2005 
http://www.spiegel.de/wissenschaft/erde/0,1518,druck-391361,00.html

Dass Mensch und Schimpanse einst einen gemeinsamen Vorfahren hatten, gilt schon lange als ausgemacht. Unklar war jedoch, wann der letzte gemeinsame Ahne lebte. Forscher konnten den Zeitraum jetzt genauer bestimmen als je zuvor.

Irgendwann vor 3 bis 13 Millionen Jahren, so vermuteten Wissenschaftler bisher, haben sich die evolutionären Wege von Mensch und Schimpanse getrennt - eine reichlich vage Angabe. Ein Forscherteam um Sudhir Kumar von der Arizona State University in Tempe konnte die Zeit nach eigenen Angaben jetzt wesentlich genauer eingrenzen: Vor fünf bis sieben Millionen Jahren haben sich die Vorfahren der heutigen Menschen und Schimpansen getrennt, heißt es in einem Artikel im Fachblatt "Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences".

Finally, this 07.Jan.2005 story in the Deseret News includes confirmation that Hassoun was engaged in an undefined intelligence operation:

Questions of Hassoun's involvement in intelligence were raised last month when Marine officials disclosed that Hassoun, whose main duty was to drive trucks, was called to help in undercover intelligence operations in Iraq.

However, Wims said the fact that Hassoun was not charged with divulging classified information may indicate that Hassoun's role in that operation was minimal. If Hassoun was a threat to military security, he would have been treated differently, Wims said.

The writer of this article did not consider the possibility that the kidnapping was the "undercover intelligence operation."
If... if we credit the theory that Hassoun participated in a fake kidnapping arranged by American operatives, we can only guess at the purpose. Those who surmise along these lines will presume that the operation was blown + that Houssan was allowed to disappear.

Update: End of self-quotation; this is my

00.Dec.2005 self writing again. I'm going to include in the body of this post some information that first appeared in the comments section.
First, a reader notes that this
CBS News photo does not depict Hassoun in the infamous orange jumpsuit. I recall that the jumpsuit was mentioned in some reports published at the time.
Wikipedia tells the follow-up story as well as anyone:

A preliminary result of the United States Navy into the activities of Wassef Ali Hassoun concluded that he deserted the United States Marine Corps on June 21, 2004. The investigation is ongoing [1]. In mid-July, he publicly denied desertion
On December 9, 2004, The Pentagon announced that Hassoun would be charged with desertion, larceny and wrongful disposition of military property in connection with his service-issued 9 mm handgun that disappeared with him and never turned up. If convicted, he could receive a dishonorable discharge, forfeiture of pay + from five to ten years incarceration on each specification.
In a further twist, on January 4, 2005 he was again labelled a deserter after failing to return to his base in North Carolina from authorised leave. He is reportedly in Canada or Lebanon.

Who kidnapped the Christian Peacekeepers? (Updated) Four members of a non-missionary Christian peace group -- opponents of Mr. Bush's war -- were kidnapped more than three weeks ago in Iraq by a group no-one had heard of before called the Swords of Righteousness Brigade. The brigade has called the Peacemakers "spies," even though the group is known for its aid work -- and for helping Seymour Hersh uncover the Abu Ghraib scandal. The group has also
denounced George Bush's most recent speech.
Muslims around the world, including many with strong anti-U.S. feelings, have called for the release of these prisoners, who have provided a consistent anti-war voice.
Privately, a few have wondered: Who are the kidnappers? Why would they target a group which has taken great risks to antagonize the Bush forces?
Are we dealing with what British General Frank Kitson once called a "pseudo-gang"?
No-one doubts, these days, that the CIA + other American agencies are perfectly willing to perform kidnappings of both Americans + non-Americans.

But is there precedent for the presence of a kidnap-crazed "pseudo-gang" in Iraq?
Many will recall the example of Nick Berg, whose grisly behading video seemed unconvincing to many.

I took the evidence of murder at face value, but I still wonder why Berg wore an orange jumpsuit similar to the those seen in the Abu Ghraib photos + why the surrounding details (the floor, the walls, the chair) matched interior shots of that prison. In my eyes, the murder of Nick Berg remains mysterious. (Many details of his life were also puzzling, but we must go into those enigmas at another time.)
13.Jul.2004 - when few people paid attention to this blog -- I published a piece on another Iraq kidnapping, where the indications of fakery were stronger. Even mainstream periodicals voiced suspicion.

This post may have some bearing on the current episode. I'll repeat it here (beneath the asterisks). * * *

1727 - King George I of Great Britain (b.)

20.Dec.Dec.2005 "It was a shameful act for someone to disclose this important program in a time of war," Bush said. President George W. Bush during a White House news conference on Monday.
20.Dec.Dec.2005 Those opposing the renewal of key provisions of the act that are expiring say they threaten constitutional liberties. Reacting to Bush's defense of the NSA program, Sen. Russell Feingold, D-Wis., said the president's remarks were ''breathtaking in how extreme they were.'' Feingold said it was ''absurd'' that Bush said he relied on his inherent power as president to authorize the wiretaps. ''If that's true, he doesn't need the Patriot Act because he can just make it up as he goes along. I tell you, he's President George Bush, not King George Bush. This is not the system of government we have and that we fought for,'' Feingold told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. The president had harsh words for those who talked about the program to the media, saying their actions were illegal and improper. ''As a result, our enemies have learned information they should not have,'' he said. ''The unauthorized disclosure of this effort damages our national security and puts our citizens at risk.''
20.Dec.2005 ."Congressional Democrats and some Republicans have expressed outrage at the NSA program, saying it contradicts long-standing restrictions on domestic spying and subverts constitutional guarantees against unwarranted invasions of privacy. . . ."Bush justified his order on his presidential powers as commander in chief as well as his interpretation of the congressional resolution authorizing him to use force in response to the Sept. 11 attacks, passed days after the World Trade Center and the Pentagon were hit. But Bush did not explain his constitutional thinking, nor how the 2001 resolution gave him the authority to order domestic spying. He took no questions + aides would not discuss the legal issues surrounding the program."David E. Sanger wrote in the Sunday New York Times: "In his statement on Saturday, Mr. Bush did not address the main question directed at him by some members of Congress on Friday: why he felt it necessary to circumvent the system established under current law, which allows the president to seek emergency warrants, in secret, from the court that oversees intelligence operations. His critics said that under that law, the administration could have obtained the same information."Will Congress Reassert Itself?Dana Milbank wrote in the Sunday Washington Post: "After a series of embarrassing disclosures, Congress is reconsidering its relatively lenient oversight of the Bush administration."Lawmakers have been caught by surprise by several recent reports, including the existence of secret U.S. prisons abroad, the CIA's detention overseas of innocent foreign nationals, and, last week, the discovery that the military has been engaged in domestic spying. After five years in which the GOP-controlled House and Senate undertook few investigations into the administration's activities, the legislative branch has begun to complain about being in the dark. . . ."In an interview last week, Rep. Thomas M. Davis III (R-Va.), chairman of the House Government Reform Committee, said 'it's a fair comment' that the GOP-controlled Congress has done insufficient oversight and 'ought to be' doing more. . . ."Democrats on the committee said the panel issued 1,052 subpoenas to probe alleged misconduct by the Clinton administration and the Democratic Party between 1997 and 2002, at a cost of more than $35 million. By contrast, the committee under Davis has issued three subpoenas to the Bush administration. . . ."Democrats list 14 areas where the GOP majority has 'failed to investigate' the administration, including the role of senior officials in the abuse of detainees; leaking the identity of CIA operative Valerie Plame; the role of Vice President Cheney's office in awarding contracts to Cheney's former employer, Halliburton; the White House's withholding from Congress the cost of a Medicare prescription drug plan; the administration's relationship with Iraqi politician Ahmed Chalabi; and the influence of corporate interests on energy policy, environmental regulation and tobacco policy."Gail Russell Chaddock writes in the Christian Science Monitor: "From a standoff over the Patriot Act to pushback from Capitol Hill on the treatment of detainees, secret prisons abroad + government eavesdropping at home, tensions between the Bush White House and the Republican-controlled Congress have never been more exposed."Andrew Rudalevige, a political science professor at Dickinson College and author of the new book, The New Imperial Presidency: Renewing Presidential Power after Watergate, recently wrote for NiemanWatchdog.org: "The 'imperial presidency' can only be empowered by an 'invisible Congress.' It's time for another Congressional resurgence. . . ."In our system, strong presidential leadership is essential -- but if unchecked and undebated it can also do damage to the soul of our self-governance. Our government is built on the presumption that (in James Madison's phrase) 'ambition [will] counteract ambition.' But so far Congress's ambition has largely manifested itself in a desire to avoid the blame that can be associated with making difficult decisions."Rudalevige asks: "After the 11.Sep.2001 attacks + again in October 2002, Congress granted the president very broad authorizations to use force -- in the first case, against opponents defined by the president himself. Should legislators revisit these 'blank check' resolutions in the light of additional information about the executive decision-making process that led to the Iraq war?"Froomkin WatchThe White House gave reporters just over two hours notice this morning that Bush would hold a press conference at 10:30 a.m. ET.I filed my column today before the press conference began. And (bad timing) I have to take tomorrow off. But I expect to be back on Wednesday.Last Night's SpeechHere is the text of Bush's prime-time Oval Office speech last night.The president is getting a lot of credit from journalists this morning for sounding chastened, conciliatory, even humble. Some are writing that he is finally admitting his mistakes and engaging his critics. But a close reading of his speech makes it quite clear that he did neither last night.During the past two weeks, Bush has been more realistic than before about the obstacles in Iraq.But when it came to admitting mistakes, Bush acknowledged tactical errors and intelligence failures by others. He didn't take responsibility for the bad intelligence -- just for "the decision to go into Iraq." He was still unwilling to admit he's made any mistakes himself. And in fact he said he has "never been more certain" about the mission in Iraq.Some of Bush's speech was directed at his critics -- a first. He even voiced one of their major concerns -- that "we are creating more problems than we're solving" -- and called that an "important question." All quite unprecedented.But Bush then moved right into one of his classic straw-man arguments, attacking those who believe that "the terrorists would become peaceful if only America would stop provoking them." The arguments made by critics are quite different. They argue, for instance, that the occupation is turning ordinary Iraqis into terrorists, is turning Iraq into a training ground for terrorists + is distracting from the greater war on terror. Bush didn't mention those arguments.And there is a big difference between speaking to critics from the Oval Office -- and actually hearing and responding to their criticisms in person.The AnalysesPeter Baker writes in The Washington Post: "As more of the country abandons him on Iraq, Bush has embarked on a campaign to bring the war back into the fold with a more realistic assessment of mistakes and of challenges ahead. Last night's national address from the Oval Office ended a two-week series of speeches by imploring the American people to stand behind him, to swallow their skepticism and take hope from last week's Iraqi election, to believe that a greater good will come from the sacrifice."Bush addressed opponents of the war in a far more direct and, at moments, almost conciliatory manner, acknowledging that 'this war is controversial' and saying he has heard those who disagree with him. 'We will continue to listen to hon .."
20.Dec.2005 Feingold Statements Portions of a statement/fact sheet he's released:“The President's shocking admission that he authorized the National Security Agency to spy on American citizens, without going to a court and in violation of the Constitution and laws passed by Congress, further demonstrates the urgent need for these protections. The President believes that he has the power to override the laws that Congress has passed. This is not how our democratic system of government works. The President does not get to pick and choose which laws he wants to follow. He is a president, not a king. “On behalf of all Americans who believe in our constitutional system of government, I call on this Administration to stop this program immediately and to fully cooperate with congressional inquiries and investigations. We have had enough of an Administration that puts itself above the law and the Constitution.”...* FISA makes it a crime, punishable by up to five years in prison, to conduct electronic surveillance except as provided for by statute. The only defense is for law government agents engaged in official duties conducting “surveillance authorized by and conducted pursuant to a search warrant or court order.” [50 U.S.C. § 1809] * Congress has specifically stated, in statute, that the criminal wiretap statute and FISA “shall be the exclusive means by which electronic surveillance . . . and the interception of domestic wire, oral + electronic communications may be conducted.” [18 U.S.C. § 2518(f)] * The target of a FISA wiretap is never given notice that he or she was subject to surveillance, unless the evidence obtained through the electronic surveillance is ultimately used against the target in a criminal trial.The president is a criminal.
20.Dec.2005 Make the List Public Indeed. All of these people have had their clear constitutional and legal rights violated under direct order from the president of the United States.
20.Dec.2005 Spying on Americans We need to know who, why, what:The revelation that the National Security Agency was allowed to conduct non-FISA intercepts of American citizens should bring last summer's hearing on John Bolton's nomination to the United Nations back into focus. As Legal times noted in September of this year, "During the confirmation hearings of John Bolton as the U.S. representative to the United Nations, it came to light that the NSA had freely revealed intercepted conversations of U.S. citizens to Bolton while he served at the State Department. . . . More generally, Newsweek reports that from January 2004 to May 2005, the NSA supplied intercepts and names of 10,000 U.S. citizens to policy-makers at many departments, other U.S. intelligence services + law enforcement agencies." We still don't know who he was looking at and what information was contained in those intercepts. More importantly, were they legally obtained? In light of the latest revelation, we have another possible explanation why the Bush Administration fought so strenuously to keep those intercepts secret and out of the hearing. Snooping without judicial review is wrong and must be punished.There was absolutely no reason to not follow FISA unless they didn't want anyone to know who they were snooping on.Criminals
20.Dec.2005 BARR: Do we have a declaration of war, Dana? ROHRABACHER: You don't have to do that. BARR: We don't? That makes it even much easier for a president. ...BARR: Here again, this is absolutely a bizarre conversation where you have a member of Congress saying that it's okay for the president of the USAto ignore U.S. law, to ignore the Constitution, simply because we are in an undeclared war. The fact of the matter is the law prohibits -- specifically prohibits -- what apparently was done in this case + for a member of Congress to say, oh, that doesn't matter, I'm proud that the president violated the law is absolutely astounding, Wolf. ROHRABACHER: Not only proud, we can be grateful to this president. You know, I'll have to tell you, if it was up to Mr. Schumer, Senator Schumer, they probably would have blown up the Brooklyn Bridge. The bottom line is this: in wartime we expect our leaders, yes, to exercise more authority. Now, I have led the fight to making sure there were sunset provisions in the Patriot Act, for example. So after the war, we go back to recognizing the limits of government. But we want to put the full authority that we have and our technology to use immediately to try to thwart terrorists who are going to -- how about have a nuclear weapon in our cities?BARR: And the Constitution be damned, Dana?ROHRABACHER: Well, I'll tell you something, if a nuclear weapon goes off in Washington, DC, or New York or Los Angeles, it'll burn the Constitution as it does. So I'm very happy we have a president that's going to wiretap people's communication with people overseas to make sure that they're not plotting to blow up one of our cities. BLITZER: We're out of time, but Bob Barr, I'll give you the last word. BARR: Well, first of all, or last of all, this so-called plot to blow up the Brooklyn Bridge was bogus because it had to do with a group of idiots who were planning to dismantle it with blow torches. And, we should never pass up the opportunity to play a round of Dana's Got A Secret.(via pandagon)
20.Dec.2005 Often appearing angry in an eight-minute address, the president made clear he has no intention of halting his authorizations of the monitoring activities and said public disclosure of the program by the news media had endangered Americans.Bush's willingness to publicly acknowledge a highly classified spying program was a stunning development for a president known to dislike disclosure of even the most mundane inner workings of his White House. Just a day earlier he had refused to talk about it.Since

Time-Delayed Journalism: The New York Times and the NSA’s Illegal Spying Operation: It’s a long, sad decline from what Lowe wrote in 1851 to the disclosure by the New York Times on Friday that it sat for over a year on a story revealing that the Bush administration had sanctioned a program of secret, illegal spying on US citizens here in the Homeland, by the National Security Agency. And when it comes to zeal in protecting the Bill of Rights, between December 22, 1974 and December 16, 2005 it’s been a steady run down hill for the New York Times.

James Bamford, author of two books on the NSA, said the program [ spying without court authorisation ] could be problematic because it bypasses a special court set up by the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act to authorize eavesdropping on suspected terrorists.

I didn’t hear him specify any legal right, except his right as president, which in a democracy doesn’t make much sense,’ Bamford said in an interview. ‘Today, what Bush said is he went around the law, which is a violation of the law — which is illegal.’”

It’s looking more like Nixon every day (and some of the same players are involved.) Powerful president in big trouble a year after re-election. The story arc is beginning to bend down + there’s three more years of fun.

It’s time to fuck ‘em, break ‘em + drive ‘em across the land.

Not Your Average Scandal: Bush Domestic Spying Impeachable?
18.Dec.2005 GNN.TV - Anthony Lappe - The New York Times ran revelations George W. Bush signed off on an Executive Order empowering the National Security Agency (NSA) to spy on American peace activists + any others deemed a "domestic threat" to national security. This runs counter to the law + the little scandal among the myriad White House and Republican party scandals is causing a bigger than may be expected stir in Washington. -lex

Today’s
Times blockbuster that

00.000.2002 Bush signed a secret executive order to allow the NSA to spy on American citizens without a court order couldn’t have come at a worse time for the White House.

The Senate just happened to be voting

today on whether or not to renew parts of the USA Patriot Act set to expire.

The nays had it, in a striking blow to the administration.
The timing of the story is raising eyebrows.

The Times noted the administration told them to not print the story +

the paper apparently capitulated, holding the report for a year.

The paper claims it wanted to do “additional reporting.”

The editors have refused to allow the authors,

James Risen + Eric Lichtblau,

to talk to the press.

Washington - Er werde weitere Abhöraktionen erlauben, solange die Vereinigten Staaten der andauernden Bedrohung durch Terroristen ausgesetzt seien, sagte George W. Bush heute im Weißen Haus in Washington. "Das amerikanische Volk erwartet, von uns beschützt zu werden. Und wir werden das tun, das ist unser Job", sagte Bush weiter. "Wir müssen die Punkte miteinander verbinden, bevor die Feinde angreifen, nicht danach." Der Kampf gegen die Terrororganisation al-Qaida, "die kein konventioneller Gegner ist", erfordere "ein neues Denken und Handeln".

Die Veröffentlichung der NSA-Maßnahmen schwäche den Kampf gegen die Terroristen. Die Enthüllung der geheimen Lauschangriffe nannte er eine "schändliche Tat" und "Verrat von Geheimnissen". Schon allein die Diskussion über das Programm helfe den Feinden der Vereinigten Staaten, die nach wie vor Anschläge aufs Land planten. "Sie müssen verstehen + ich hoffe, dass das amerikanische Volk das versteht: Es existiert noch immer ein Feind, der die Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika angreifen will, und sie sind sehr gefährlich."

Der US-Präsident hatte am Wochenende zugegeben, zahlreiche Lauschangriffe durch den Geheimdienst NSA (National Security Agency), der eigentlich für die Auslandsaufklärung zuständig ist, genehmigt zu haben. Die Abhöraktionen fanden demnach nach den Terroranschlägen vom 11. September 2001 statt. Nach einem Bericht der "New York Times" waren mehrere hundert, möglicherweise sogar mehrere tausend Menschen betroffen.
Im Kongress laufen Bestrebungen zu einer Untersuchung des Vorgehens, das Partei übergreifend Kritik ausgelöst hat.

North Carolina: What's going on? Mike Wilburt, chairman of the Warren County Republican Party in that state, has grown
disenchanted with Diebold:
Several newspaper articles, editorials and published commentaries have raised questions about the process in which Diebold's certification was obtained. Further questions have been raised relative to State Board of Elections Commission Chairman Larry Leake's relationship with a Diebold lobbyist. And, as you know, the State Board of Elections is being sued for alleged statutory violations in their certification of Diebold as a provider of electronic voting machines.
The Warren County Republican Party respectfully asks that no taxpayer money be appropriated for the purchase of electronic voting machines from Diebold, or any other provider, until such time as all questions regarding the certification process and the relationship between Chairman Leake and Diebold's representatives have been satisfactorily answered.

This, from a November 21 letter written by the interestingly-named
Arthur Bovino, of the NYT's Office of the Public Editor.
Of course, Conyers uncovered massive indications of vote-rigging + conclusive proof that Kenny the Kapo acted illegally. Yet the Times' response to the evidence was so complacent as to be...well, bovine.
This, from a paper that treated Achmed Chalabi as a really trustworthy source.
19.Dec.2005 http://www.cannonfire.blogspot.com/
The New York Times published an Op-Ed
questioning Diebold. This column is a victory of sorts, although I, for one, feel that skepticism should have been voiced much earlier. Still, let us be grateful for these three paragraphs:
Diebold's voting machines have a troubled history. The company was accused of installing improperly certified software, which is illegal, in a 2002 governor's race in Georgia. Across the country, it reached a multimillion-dollar settlement with the California attorney general last year of a lawsuit alleging that it made false claims about the security of its machines. Last week, the top elections officer in Leon County, Fla., which includes Tallahassee, concluded after a test that Diebold machines can be hacked to change vote totals.
Diebold has always insisted that its electronic voting machines are so reliable that there is no need for paper records of votes that can be independently verified. Fortunately, the American people feel otherwise. Nearly half the states - including large ones like California, New York, Illinois and Ohio - now require so-called paper trails.
Paper trails are important, but they are no substitute for voting machine manufacturers of unquestioned integrity. As Diebold enters the post-O'Dell era, it should work to make itself worthy of the important role it now plays in American democracy. All very well and good. But always keep in mind that a year ago -- back when the NYT had yet to call Judy Miller on her crap, back when the paper censored the news about spying on Americans without warrants -- they refused to offer any coverage of John Conyers' heroic work + they dismissed as blog-driven rumor-mongering all allegations of vote fraud.
Both Matthew Purdy, the head of The Times’s investigative unit + Rick Berke, the paper’s Washington editor, assure me that reporters will continue to look into the ssue. I’m confident that if they find something, they’ll publish it. A good investigative reporter (much less a whole staff of them) turning away from a story like this one ­ if true ­ would be like a flower turning away from the sun. Careers are made by stories that detail massive election fraud.

The allegations of vote fraud strike me as a foretaste of a looming civil war. Sunni participation in the election does not mean that the insurgency has ended + one can only imagine how Sunnis will chafe under a regime friendly to Tehran. Shi'ites, conversely, will snarl mightily if they lose any of the power they have already gained.
Of course, Bush may prefer to resolve the issue by attempting to install a U.S.-friendly regime in Tehran. If he makes such a try, the world will enter hell.

Of course, civil war in Iraq will break out a few minutes after we break away, but at least we would no longer be melting and torturing those we intended to liberate.
For a good view of what really went down in these elections, start with
this Guardian article on the likelihood of rigged voting in Iraq:
Suspected polling violations on voting day last week far exceeded the number in Iraq's first election in January, local and international monitors said yesterday.
On the deadline for filing complaints, the number of alleged violations which could swing results in the 275-seat parliament was "well into double figures", an accredited international election observer, who wished to remain anonymous, said. More:

The
Dark Wraith carries a chilling report of a Dartmouth student who ended up talking to Homeland Security agents simply because he sought out a copy of Mao's Little Red Book. Obviously, loan requests are subjected to keyword searches. The thought will infuriate anyone who relies on libraries to obtain political books.
S'funny -- when I was young, when Mao was alive, the free availability of his book was usually cited as the classic example proving America's unfettered intellectual freedom. (The other example was Mein Kampf .) Most Americans felt proud to boast that any citizen could read any political text without fear of governmental intrusion.
Back then, only sexual materials were censored.
Now, sexual writings of all sorts have become so widely available that few writers can profit from them; why should the public pay for what it can get for free? Yet if you show any interest (even a historical interest) in certain proscribed political works, you will end up on a "watch" list.

Doch die neue Form des Preisdumpings führt auch zu Problemen, wie Piller festgestellt hat: "Einige festangestellte Forscher fürchten anscheinend um ihren Job und überfluten Innovationsbörsen absichtlich mit unlösbaren Aufgaben, um die Konkurrenten im Netz zu frustrieren."
Auch die starre Vertragspolitik sorgt bisweilen für Unmut: "Alle Rechte am geistigen Eigentum an eine anonyme Firma abzutreten, wie es oft geschieht, ist schon sehr gewöhnungsbedürftig", sagt etwa der Privatforscher Hügin aus Genf.
Dennoch jobbt er weiter im globalen Ideenlabor. Kürzlich hat er wieder 20.000 Dollar bekommen, weil er geholfen hat, Joghurtkulturen haltbarer zu machen. Aber seine besten Ideen behält er künftig für sich: Demnächst will er ein eigenes Patent anmelden.

Vor rund acht Millionen Jahren hatten sich Gorillas evolutionär vom Vorfahren von Schimpanse und Mensch getrennt. Nur eine Million Jahre später trennten sich die Linien von Mensch und Schimpanse. Über die Ursache der explosiven Artenbildungen bei Menschenaffen und Elefanten, die zeitlich relativ nah beieinander liegen, will Hofreiter nur spekulieren: "Möglicherweise hat sich in dem Zeitalter das Klima geändert." Aber derzeit fehle es an Daten, um dies belegen zu können.
19.Dec.2005 
http://www.spiegel.de/wissenschaft/erde/0,1518,druck-391226,00.html
Das Team von Hofreiter konnte die Mitochondrien-DNA komplett extrahieren - sie ist knapp 17.000 Basenpaare lang. Um Verunreinigungen und Artefakte auszuschließen, wurde das Erbgut auch in anderen Laboren untersucht - allerdings nur auf einer Länge von 5000 Basenpaaren.
Offenbar haben sich die Afrikanischen Elefanten schon vor etwa sechs Millionen Jahren in einen Artenzweig abgespalten, schreiben die Wissenschaftler im Magazin "Nature". Die Trennung von Mammuts und Indischen Elefanten sei dann nur 440.000 Jahre später erfolgt.
Frühere Versuche, Teile des Mammut-Erbguts zu rekonstruieren, waren am Material gescheitert, das nach 10.000 Jahren oder mehr zu stark beschädigt war. Wollmammuts starben in der letzten Eiszeit vor rund 11.000 Jahren aus.
Mit der jetzigen Analyse liegt laut Hofreiter "die längste kontinuierliche DNA aus der Eiszeit" vor. Gleichzeitig handle es sich um das einzige mitochondriale Genom aus der Eiszeit.

19.Dec.2005 
http://www.spiegel.de/wissenschaft/erde/0,1518,druck-391226,00.html

Deutsche Wissenschaftler haben erstmals wichtige Teile der Mammut-DNA rekonstruiert. Demnach stehen die ausgestorbenen Giganten den Indischen Elefanten genetisch näher als den Afrikanischen.

Das ausgestorbene Mammut ähnelt in seinem Erbgut stark dem Indischen Elefanten und weniger dem Afrikanischen. Dies haben Wissenschaftler vom Leipziger Max-Planck-Institut für Evolutionäre Anthroplologie jetzt erstmals nachgewiesen. Michael Hofreiter und seine Kollegen nutzten dabei eine neuentwickelte Technik namens multiple Polymerase-Kettenreaktion (PCR), um aus nur 200 Milligramm Knochenmaterial Mammut-DNA zu extrahieren.

The Seven Sisters - The seven major oil companies.

From Diplomacy by Deception, by Dr. John Coleman:

.Other countries had felt the lash of the petroleum industry as well. Mexico is a classic case of petroleum companies foreign policy-making ability which transcended national boundaries and cost American s a huge fortune. Oil, it seemed, was the foundation of a new economic order, with undisputed power in the hands of a few people hardly known outside of the petroleum industry.

The “majors” have been referred to a number of times. This is shorthand for the major oil companies that form the most successful cartel in the history of commerce.

Exxon (called Esso in Europe), Shell, BP (British Petroleum), Gulf, Texaco, Mobile and Socol-Chevron . Together they form part of a major network of interlocking, interfacing banks, insurance companies and brokerage houses controlled by the Committee of 300, which are hardly known outside their circle .

The reality of the One World Government, or New World Order upper level government, brooks no interference from anyone, no matter who it might be — even powerful national governments — the rulers of nations great and small, corporations or private people. These supranational giants have expertise and accounting methods that have flummoxed the best brains in government, out of whose reach they remain.

Through diplomacy by deception it seems the majors were able to induce governments to parcel out oil concessions to them, no matter who opposed it.

John D. Rockefeller would very much have approved this closed shop, run for the last 68 years by Exxon and Shell . It is evident from the vastness and the complexity of their operations ... that the petroleum industry is one of the most powerful components that make up the economic operations of the Committee of 300.

In secret, the Seven Sisters club has plotted wars and decided amongst themselves which governments must bow to their depredations. When trouble arises ... it is only a matter of calling upon the right air force, navy, intelligence service to solve the problem and get rid of the “nuisance.” . . .

The Seven Sisters became a government within a government . . .

The Brutal, Illegal
Gulf War

The most recent of wars carried out under the cloak of diplomacy by deception, the Gulf War, differs from others in that the Committee of 300, the Council on Foreign Relations, Illuminati and Bilderbergers did not adequately cover their tracks along the way to war.

The Gulf War therefore is one of the easiest wars to trace back to Chatham House and Harold Pratt House, and, fortunately for us, it is one of the easiest to prove the diplomacy by deception thesis.

The Gulf War must be viewed as a single component of the Committee of 300's overall strategy for the Middle East oil-producing Islamic states. Only a brief historical overview can be given here. It is essential to know the truth and to be set free from the propaganda of Madison Avenue opinion-makers, also known as “advertising agencies.”

British imperialists, aided by their American cousins, began to implement their plans to seize control of all Middle East oil in or around the mid-1980's. The illegal Gulf War was an integral provision of that plan.

I say illegal, because ... only the Congress can declare war, as laid down in Article I, Section 8, clauses 1, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 and 18 of the U.S. Constitution. Henry Clay, a recognized authority on the Constitution, said this on a number of occasions.

No elected official can override the provisions of the Constitution + both former Secretary of State James Baker III and President George Bush, ought to have been impeached for violation the Constitution. A British intelligence source told me that when Baker met Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace, he actually bragged about how he got around the Constitution + then, in the presence of the queen, chastised Edward Heath who had opposed the war. . . .

Baker also boasted about how his threats against the Iraqi nation were carried out + Queen Elizabeth II nodded her approval. Obviously Baker and President Bush, who was also present at the gathering, placed their fealty to the One World Government above that of the oath of office they took to uphold the Constitution of the USA.

The land of Arabia existed for thousands of years . . . The land was linked to events in Turkey, Persia (now Iran) + Iraq through the Wahabi and the Abdul Aziz families.

In the 15 th century, the British, under the direction of Black Guelph Venetian robber-bankers saw the possibilities of entrenching themselves in Arabia, where they were opposed by the Koreish tribe, the tribe of the prophet Muhammad, the posthumous son of the Hashemite, Abdullah, out of which came the Fatima and Abbasid Dynasties.

The Gulf War was only an extension of the Committee of 300's attempts to destroy Muhammad and the Hashemite people in Iraq. The rulers of Saudi Arabia are hated and despised by all true followers of Islam, more so since they allowed “infidels” (U.S. troops) to be stationed in the land of the prophet Muhammad. . . .

Strict observation of the fundamental principles of the Muslim religion make one a fundamentalist, which the Wahabi and Abdul Aziz families (the Saudi Royal family), are not. The Saudi Royal Family has slowly but surely drifted away from fundamentalism, which has not endeared them to Islamic fundamentalist countries like Iraq and Iran, who now blame them for making the Gulf War possible in the first place. . . .

00.000.1915, the British invaded Iraq and occupied Baghdad in an act President George Bush would have called “naked aggression,” the term he used to describe Iraq’s move against Kuwait to reclaim its land stolen by Britain. The British government set up a self-proclaimed “mandate” ... and on August 23, 1921, two months after his arrival in Baghdad, self-styled high commissioner (Sir Percy) Cox, named former King Faisal of Syria as head of a puppet regime in Basra. Britain now had one puppet in northern Iraq and another in southern Iraq.

The leading British coordinator of the OSS and its policy was William Stephenson, the head of the Special Intelligence Section of the Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) and he was given a floor of the Rockefeller Center rent free. From there he ran a network of British agents in the USAwhich, according to Mullins, were involved in the murders of German sailors in New York, acts designed to entice Hitler to declare war on America.

Stephenson and Louis Bloomfield, the head of Permindex, also ran Operation Underworld with the Lansky Syndicate . Mullins suggests that three other members of the British Chiefs of Staff behind the creation of the OSS were: Lord Louis Mountbatten (Committee of 300, Bilderberg), a cousin of the King and related to the Frankfort banking families, Rothschild and Cassel ; Charles Hambro, director of Hambros Bank and the Special Operations Executive; and Colonel Stewart Menzies, head of the Secret Intelligence Service . Lord Victor Rothschild was also at the heart of it. . . .

After the war, Donovan was special assistant to the US prosecutor at the Nuremberg Trials to ensure that British and American involvement with the Nazis was not revealed. President Truman disbanded the OSS 00.000.1945, but it was reformed as the CIA

00.000.1948 under the control of Allen W. Dulles, a major funder of Adolf Hitler .

Appropriately, Dulles, a director of Hitler's bankers, J. Henry Schroder (Committee of 300), chose them to handle CIA funds. The CIA is an arm of the tax-exempt foundation syndicates controlled by the Rockefellers/Rothschilds, like the Rockefeller Foundation, the Ford Foundation + the Carnegie organisation, through which much of the CIA policy is decided.

Which brings us to CBS, the third of the 'independent' networks. Its financial expansion was supervised for a long time by Brown Brothers Harriman and its senior partner, Prescott Bush who was a CBS director. CBS banks through the Morgan Guaranty Trust and reports of CBS connections with the CIA and British Intelligence are legion among New World Order researchers. Some know it as the Conspiracy Brainwashing System. The CBS board included: William S. Paley (Committee of 300), the chairman (for whom Prescott Bush personally organised the money to buy the company); Harold Brown (CFR), executive director of the Trilateral Commission + former Secretary of the Air Force and Defense; Roswell Gilpatric (CFR, Bil), from the Kuhn, Loeb (Rothschild) law firm, Cravath, Swaine + Moore + former director of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York; Henry B. Schnacht, director of the Chase Manhattan Bank (Rockefeller/Rothschild), the Council on Foreign Relations, Brookings Institution + Committee for Economic Development; Michel C. Bergerac, chairman of Revlon + director of Manufacturers Hanover Bank (Rothschild); James D. Wolfensohn (CFR, TC, Bil), former head of J. Henry Schroder Bank, who has close links with the Rothschilds and the Rockefellers, (

00.000.1995, Bill Clinton successfully nominated him to head the World Bank); Franklin A. Thomas (CFR), head of the Ford Foundation; Newton D. Minow (CFR), director of the Rand Corporation and, among many others, the Ditchley Foundation, which is closely linked with the Tavistock Institute in London and the Bilderberg Group.

People connected with research into how the public mind reacts to events and information are on the board of a USAtelevision network? What?

Again with CBS, we are looking at the same names at the helm + all three networks are closely interlocked with the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission . How can it possibly be claimed that the three television networks in America, through which the overwhelming majority of Americans get their news, are independent? . . .

Vast numbers of people think and act like a tabloid newspaper. They have allowed themselves to become tabloid thinkers with tabloid minds. We now have tabloid radio and tabloid television, too, which follows from the success of the tabloid newspapers. They all want it short, incredibly superficial + with each item full of either mockery, condemnation, instant judgements, the official line, and/or defence of the status quo. Oh yes + if you can get lots of tits and bums in there at every opportunity, so much the better, because women are only here to lust after. . . .

Those thought patterns in the collective mind created the reality we call the media. Tabloid newspapers reflect + program, the thoughts of great tracts of humanity in an ever-downward spiral. The more our thoughts are programmed, the more open we become to even more severe programming.

The media won't change until the collective mind changes and that will result only from changes in individual thinking. . . .

When we change, it will change. . . .

http://www.the-catbird-seat.net/RedCross.htm

From ... and the truth shall set you free, by David Icke:

00.000.1917, the Elite used the cover of a Red Cross mission to Russia to arrange the final details of the Bolshevik takeover. The Red Cross in Washington launched a campaign to raise $2 million. It was successful thanks only to substantial donations from New York financiers, including J.P. Morgan himself, who gave $100,000.

The bankers and industrialists proceeded to take control of the United States Red Cross and, as the Elite's John Foster Dulles put it, they "viewed the American Red Cross as a virtual arm of government..."

The personnel of this mission to Russia in August 1917 says it all. Only seven of the party of twenty-four were doctors. The rest were mostly New York financiers and their assistants, led by William Boyce Thompson (Committee of 300) - the first full-time head of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. . . .

Also in the party were three Russian interpreters, all known Bolsheviks. One of them, Boris Reinstein, would become secretary to Lenin and head of the Bureau of International Revoluntionary Propaganda. . . .

The Red Cross has been used on many occasions by the Elite without the knowledge of its genuine staff.

This is not only an insult to the work the Red Cross is seeking to do, it is also extremely dangerous for the 99% who are genuinely working for that organisation out of compassion for the plight of the world's peoples....

http://www.tetrahedron.org/articles/apocalypse/26_reasons.html Given all of the incriminating evidence linking President Bush 's "War on Terrorism" to global industrialists like the Rockefellers, Henry Kissinger, the Mercks of Europe + the British oligarchy, Dr. Horowitz concludes it is not likely an accident that the names "Merck" and " Bush " both decipher to "300" using the same code. This is consistent with the "Committee of 300" and its powerful influence over global politics and governmental policies. It is, likewise, no "coincidence" that Kissinger, the only modern day political leader whose name deciphers to "666," with his "special services" record at the CFR, became a top advisor to the Merck pharmaceutical company-the world's leading vaccine maker-with the word 'vaccination' also resolving to "666."

"Now that we have some of their secret codes," Dr. Horowitz concludes, "it is possible to perform statistical analyses, the scientific method of determining correlation (coefficients) for testing associations-in this case co-conspirators in a global conspiracy. When this is done, the outcome proves a genocidal theory beyond our worst nightmares."  

19.Dec.2005 http://www.tetrahedron.org/articles/apocalypse/26_reasons.html
Lending further credence to Dr. Horowitz's global conspiracy theory, historians reveal that Nelson Rockefeller appointed his protg, Kissinger, to become the nuclear weapons "special studies" director at the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR)

00.000.1955, resulting in the deployment of "tactical and strategic nuclear weapons" around the world that heavily spirited the Cold War's rush to arms and today's continuing nuclear threats.Ê The CFR has been largely influenced through Rockefeller involvements from its inception according to retired MI6 officer, Dr. John Coleman. In his book, Conspirators' Heirarchy: The Story of the Committee of 300 (American West, 1992) Coleman documents the council's higher direction from the British/German war-making oligarchy working through their "Committee of 300" on which George H.W. Bush, Henry Kissinger + David Rockefeller are prominent members. David Rockefeller has chaired the CFR since the 1950s.

The drug trade is controlled by the Committee of 300 from the Top down. The drug trade started with the British East India Company and was closely followed by the Dutch East India Company. Both were controlled by a "Council of 300." The list of names of members and stockholders of the BEIC read like something out of Debretts Peerage. BEIC established the "China Inland Mission," whose job it was to get The Chinese peasants, or coolies, as they were called, addicted to opium. This created the market for opium which the BEIC then filled.

In much the same way the Committee of 300 used "The "Beatles" to popularize "social drugs" with the youth of America and The Hollywood "in-crowd." Ed Sullivan was sent to England To become acquainted with The first Tavistock Institute "rock group" to hit the shores of the United States. Sullivan then returned to the USAto draft the strategy for the electronic media on how to package and sell the group. Without the full cooperation of the electronic media and Ed Sullivan, in particular, "The Beatles" and their "music" would have died on the vine. Instead, our national life and the character of the USAwas forever changed.

Now that we know, it is all too clear how successful the "Beatles" campaign to proliferate the use of drugs became. The fact that "The Beatles" had their music and lyrics written for them by Theo Adorno was concealed from public view. The prime function to "The Beatles" was to be discovered by teenagers, who where then subjected to a non-stop barrage of "Beatle music," until they became convinced that they liked the sound and adopted it, along with all that accompanied it. The Liverpool group performed up to expectations + with "a little help from their friends," i.e., illegal substances we call drugs created a whole new class to young Americans in the precise mold ordained by the Tavistock Institute.

(1) An Institute in UK where they research in mind control, run by highly trained psychiatrists who answer to the Illuminati. From here Ayatollah Khomeini, Radovan Karadzic and Milosevic among others were all trained for their mission.

Love's Five-page pro LSD pro Ginsberg article was duly printed by the New York Times. Had Ginsberg tried to buy the same amount of space in an advertisement, it would have cost him at least $50,000. But Ginsberg didn't have to worry; thanks to his Friend Kenny Love, Ginsberg got the massive advertising all for free. With newspapers like the New York Times and the Washington Post under the control of the Committee of 300, this kind of free advertising is given to any subject matter + more especially to those promoting decadent life styles--drugs-hedonism-- anything that will confuse the American people. After the trial run with Ginsberg and LSD, it became standard Club of Rome practice to call upon major newspapers in America to give free advertising on demand to people and ideas they were promoting.

Worse yet--or better yet, depending upon the viewpoint-- United Press (UP) picked up Kenny Love's free advertising for Ginsberg and LSD and telexed it to HUNDREDS of newspapers- and magazines around the country under the guise of a "news" story. Even such highly respectable establishment magazines as "Harpers Bazaar" and "TIME" made Mr. Ginsberg respectable. If a nation-wide campaign of this magnitude were presented to Ginsberg and the promoters of LSD by an advertising agency, the price tag would have run into at least $1 million in terms of 1970 dollars. Today the price tag would be nothing less than $15-$16 million dollars. It is no wonder that I refer to the news media as "jackals."

The newly-created group and its "lifestyle" swept millions of young Americans into the cult. American youth underwent a radical revolution without ever being aware of it, while the older generation stood by helplessly, unable to identify the source of the crisis + thus reacting in a maladaptive manner against its manifestation, which were drugs of all types, marijuana + later Lysergic acid, "LSD," so conveniently provided for them by the Swiss pharmaceutical company, SANDOZ, following the discovery by one of its chemists, Albert Hoffman, how to make synthetic ergotamine, a powerful mind-altering drug. The Committee of 300 financed the project through one of their banks, S. C. Warburg + the drug was carried to America by the philosopher, Aldous Huxley.

Tavistock and Stanford Research then embarked on the second phase of the work commissioned by the Committee of 300. This new phase turned up the heat for social change in America. As quickly as the Beatles had appeared on the American scene, so too did the "beat generation," trigger words designed to separate and fragment society. The media now focused its attention on the "beat generation." Other Tavistock-coined words came seemingly out of nowhere: "beatniks," "hippies," "flower children" became part of the vocabulary of America. It became popular to "drop out" and wear dirty jeans, go about with long unwashed hair. The "beat generation" cut itself off from main-stream America. They became just as infamous as the cleaner Beatles before them.

The Beatles did a perfect job, or perhaps it would be more correct to say that Tavistock and Stanford did a perfect job, the Beatles merely reacting like trained robots "with a little help from their friends"--code words for using drugs and making it "cool." The Beatles became a highly visible "new type"-- more Tavistock jargon--and as such it was not long before the group made new styles (fads in clothing, hairstyles and language usage) which upset the older generation, as was intended. This was part of the "fragmentation-maladaptation" process worked out by Willis Harmon and his team of social scientists and genetic engineering tinkerers and put into action.

The following is an excerpt from Dr. John Coleman's excellent book "The Committee of 300", which is very informative on the subject of the Illuminati and is highly recommended. Very much of what he "predicted" in the early 80's happened exactly the way he said it would. The book in itself is from the early 90's.

The Beatles and the

Aquarian Conspiracy

An outstanding example of social conditioning to accept change, even when it is recognized as unwelcome change by the large population group in the sights of Stanford Research Institute, was the "advent" of the BEATLES. The Beatles were brought to the USAas part of a social experiment which would subject large population groups to brainwashing of which they were not even aware.

When Tavistock brought the Beatles to the USAnobody could have imagined the cultural disaster that was to follow in their wake. The Beatles were an integral part of "THE AQUARIAN CONSPIRACY," a living organism which sprang From "THE CHANGING IMAGES OF MAN," URH (489)-2150-Policy Research Report No. 4/4/74. Policy Report pre-pared by SRI Center for the study of Social Policy, Director, Professor Willis Harmon.

The phenomenon of the Beatles was not a spontaneous rebellion by youth against the old social system. Instead it was a carefully crafted plot to introduce by a conspiratorial body which could not be identified, a highly destructive and divisive element into a large population group targeted for change against its will. New words and new phrases--prepared by Tavistock(1)-- were introduced to America along with the Beatles. Words such as "rock" in relation to music sounds, "teenager," "cool," "discovered" and "pop music" were a lexicon of disguised code words signifying the acceptance of drugs and arrived with and accompanied the Beatles wherever they went, to be "discovered" by "teenagers." Incidentally, the word "teenagers" was never used until just before the Beatles arrived on the scene, courtesy of the Tavistock Institute for Human Relations.

As in the case of gang wars, nothing could or would have been accomplished without the cooperation of the media, especially the electronic media and, in particular, the scurrilous Ed Sullivan who had been coached by the conspirators as to the role he was to play. Nobody would have paid much attention to the motley crew from Liverpool and the 12-atonal system of "music" that was to follow had it not been for an overabundance of press exposure. The 12-atonal system consisted of heavy, repetitive sounds, taken from the music of the cult of Dionysus and the Baal priesthood by Adorno and given a "modern" flavor by this special friend of the Queen of England and hence the Committee of 300.

Tavistock and its Stanford Research Center created trigger words which then came into general usage around "rock music" and its fans. Trigger words created a distinct new break-away largely young population group which was persuaded by social engineering and conditioning to believe that the Beatles really were their favorite group. All trigger words devised in the context of "rock music" were designed for mass control of the new targeted group, the youth of America.

"President Jefferson once said he pitied those who thought they knew what was taking-place through reading the newspaper. Disraeli, the British prime-minister, said much the same thing. Indeed, down through the ages, rulers have delighted in running-things from behind the scenes. "

In the light of all this, there are some interesting connections between the "peace negotiators" in Bosnia.

Lord Carrington (Royal Institute of International Affairs, Bilderberger, Trilateral Commission, Committee of 300); Lloyd Owen, (Bilderberger, Trilateral Commission) and Sweden's Carl Bildt (Bilderberger) followed each other as official "peace negotiators" for the European Union in the former Yugoslavia.

Cyrus Vance (CFR, TC, BIL, Comm300) was the UN "peace negotiator" while at the same time a director of Manufacturers Hanover Trust. When Vance resigned, the UN appointed Norway's Thorvald Stoltenberg (TC, BIL). And, when they understandably failed to "achieve peace," Jimmy Carter (TC), flies to Bosnia as an "independent negotiator."

Later came Richard Holbrooke (TC, CFR, BIL) as the peace envoy of Bill Clinton (CFR, TC, BIL) + the U.S. ambassador of Yugoslavia was Warren Zimmerman (TC, CFR) who reported to Warren Christopher (TC, CFR).

Remember the horrific genocide in Rwanda?

Who arrived in Rwanda just days before it broke out on an undisclosed "diplomatic mission"? Lord Carrington and Henry Kissinger.

Consider he following from a book by Dr. John Coleman, Conspirators Hierarchy: The Committee of 300.

"…I was privileged to receive a copy of The Changing Images of Man from my intelligence colleagues 5 days after it was accepted by the USAgovernment. What I read shocked me, as I realized I was looking at a blueprint for a future America unlike anything I had ever seen before.

The nation was to be programmed to change and become so accustomed to such planned changes that it would hardly be noticeable when profound changes did occur…As a nation we have not noticed how Changing Images of Man has radically altered our American way of life forever…Worse yet, having been subjected to a barrage of crimes in high places, plus the trauma of the Vietnam war, our nation seemed no longer to want truths. Such reaction is carefully explained in Willis Harmon’s technical paper. In short, the American nation was reacting exactly as profiled. Worse yet, in not wishing to accept truth, we took matters a step further: we looked to government to shield us from the truth…"

Note: Changing Images of Man is a scientific technical report originally commissioned to SRI International (largest military think-tank in U.S., even larger than Rand and Hudson)

00.000.1968 by the U.S. Office of Education, but four years later funding for the project was pulled and it was then financed internally by the SRI and published

00.000.1973, but not made public til 1982 when it was published by Pergamon Press and listed as one of the 1,000 most important technical works of our time. Changing Images of Man is contract number URH (489)-2150 Policy Research Report Number 4/4/74, prepared by SRI Center for the Study of Social Policy, Director Willis Harmon. It is 319 pages, utilizing 14 scientists + supervised by Tamistock and 23 "controllers", including a high-level officer of the British M16. Tamistock Institute of Human Relations was founded in London

00.000.1948 and is the established world center for ‘foundation ideology’ and the pioneers in behavioral science based upon Freudian guidelines of human control. Tamistock developed the mass brain-washing methods that were used experimentally on American P.O.Ws. in Korean war + also leads the field in crowd control methods by modifying behavior through topical psychology. The major financial supervision overseeing the "Changing Images of Man" project was the Committee 300, which was founded in 1729 specifically to deal with, manage and control international banking and trade problems + is run by the British Crown. It links all world banking systems to Rothschild family interests….

In quasi tutta l’America si celebrano culti satanici, che praticano feroci cerimonie e, in non pochi casi, sacrifici umani. Dowbenko, sempre su "Nexus" n.23 (cit.) scrive: <<Secondo John Coleman, autore di Conspirators’ Hierarchy: The Committee of 300: "La setta degli Illuminati è viva e vegeta in America… Poiché tale setta è anche nota come satanismo, ne deve conseguire che la CIA, mentre Dulles ne era a capo, veniva controllata da un satanista; lo stesso dicasi per George Bush (membro dell’Ordine dei Teschi e Ossa)">>. L’ex presidente americano George Bush, infatti, sarebbe stato iniziato nel 1943, alla setta "Skull and Bones" dell’Università di Yale, fondata nel 1832. La "Skull and Bones", assieme a società come il Rhodes Trust, secondo l’autorevole rivista inglese "Economist" (25 dicembre 1992), sono la moderna risorgenza degli "Illuminati di Baviera" di Jean Adam Weisshaupt (1748-1830). Bush, tra l’altro, è anche un 33° grado della Massoneria di Rito Scozzese, lo ha rivelato Giuliano Di Bernardo, Gran Maestro della Massoneria italiana, al quotidiano "La Stampa" (23 marzo 1990).

Kvázi ügyintézo és a személyi kiválogatást végzo szerve viszont a Royal Institute of International Affairs, a RIIA, ( Királyi Külügyi Intézet) politikai bizottsága, amely amerikai ikerintézményével, a Council on Foreign Relations -el együtt irányítja a világrégiók közti együttmuködést összehangoló Trilateral Commission -t, TC-t (Trilaterális Bizottságot), valamint a központi döntéseket továbbító és azoknak az egyes országokban történo végrehajtásáról gondoskodó Bilderberg Group -ot (Bilderberg Csoportot) is. Számos erre szakosodott kutató legújabb eredményei szerint a Bilderberg Csoport a legfontosabb a felsorolt intézmények közül./19/ Ugyancsak az RIIA irányítja az Oxford közelében lévo Tavistock Institute For Human Relations -t, (Az emberi kapcsolatok Tavistock Intézetét), amely viszont a nemzetközi pénzhatalom szolgálatában álló olyan kutatóintézetek munkáját hangolja össze, mint a Stanford Research Institute, a Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Institute For Policy Studies, RAND Corporation, Hudson Institute, Wharton School of Economics. Ugyancsak a Tavistock Institut irányítja a Római Klubot és a hozzátartozó kutatócsoportok tevékenységét. Az 1993-ban létrehozott Budapest Klub viszont a Római Klub fiókintézmények tekintheto. Alapítója és jelenlegi elnöke a világhíru tudós és zongoramuvész László Ervin, aki a Római Klub egyik legfontosabb kutatási programját irányítja már évek óta számos kiváló tudós közremuködésével./20/ De a Tavistock Intézet nevéhez fuzodik, pl. annak a kísérleti programnak a kidolgozása is, amelynek homályban tartott célja az volt, hogy a hagyományos értékrendszert hordozó kultúrát olyan igénytelen popkultúrával cserélje le, a mely elosegíti a tömegek - elsosorban a fiatalok - ízlésromboló manipulálását a rock-drug-sex szubkultúra rafinált eszközeiv el. Az itt elokészített program alapján indultak a világ meghódítására az 1960-as évek elején a Beatlesek is. Erre utalt John Lennon, amikor 1962-ben ezeket mondotta Tony Sheridan-nak a hamburgi Starclub-ban:

Don't be mis-led by labels such as "Rockefeller" or "Rothschild"; for these are simply the families who have the mechanisms of control already set in place,but of themselves are not the entire network; that being the "Committee of 300". It is THEY who control the UN, who tell the heads of nations "when to jump and how high", they who are behind the world's illicit drug trade via the CIA and the old British East India links. They who manage the IMF,set policy at GATT conferences. It is they who ARE the "Shadow Government". It is they who manage the CIA,NSA,DIA..the same group that took out JFK and have MURDERED around 173 people in their efforts to suppress the truth about all the links..they who were behind the assassination of RFK,MLK..they who are behind the suppression of truth regarding the MIA's; It is the same group behind E. Howard Hunt, John Singlaub, Ollie North..the very same group who brought down Richard Nixon in Watergate..the same group behind the persecution of the Christic Institute..the same people who were behind Nugan-Hand..the same group that groomed Jimmy Carter for the Presidency..the same group who ARE the "Military-Industrial complex", the same group behind the total militarization of NASA..the same group who ARE "MJ-12", were behind the "Jason Group"..the same behind Project Blue Book, The Condon Committee, the same who started up the NSA..who are responsible for the MURDER of Danny Casalaro..the same group responsible for the world-wide DISINFO campaign regarding the TRUTH of UFO sightings and contacts. The very SAME group who OWN THE MEDIA..ie..The Washington Post, NBC (General Electric),ABC,CBS,The New York Times,etc. The same group behind the the Warren Commission,ad nauseum..

Please understand that the Bilderbergers, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Tri-lateral Commission,the Institute for Policy Studies, the Roundtables, the "Club of Rome",etc are ALL bound by common denominators of long-standing families ties + interests and come together as a _single_ policy making body that is known today as "The Committee of 300" . This has also been known as "The Olympians", the "Policy Committee".

INTERESTING BACKGROUNDS ON SOME OF THE PLAYERS INVOLVED

The WTC was designed by a New World Order Japanese architect, Minora Yamasaki. During his life he married four times, the first and last times to the same woman. He traveled throughout Japan, India, Europe and the Middle East. He was associated with over 85 projects in the U.S., Japan and Saudi Arabia, the latter including Dhahran Air Terminal in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia and the Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency Headquarters in Riyadh. Osama bin Laden is a Saudi, as is also Prince Abdullah, a major financial supporter of Muslim terrorists.

Coincidentally, Yamasaki also designed the American Concrete Institute building in Detroit. He was selected to design the WTC over a dozen other architects + worked closely with the construction engineers on the project.

Listen to his outlook on life:

"I feel this way about it. World trade means world peace and consequently the World Trade Center buildings in New York...had a bigger purpose than just to provide room for tenants. The World Trade Center is a living symbol of man's dedication to world peace...beyond the compelling need to make this a monument to world peace, the World Trade Center should, because of its importance, become a representation of man's belief in humanity, his need for individual dignity, his beliefs in the cooperation of men + through cooperation, his ability to find greatness."

I think he forgot to add, "And if we have to blow the WTC up to bring people closer together for a one-world government, so be it." His opinion sounds to me like what the architects of the Tower of Babel probably said.

The cleanup of the WTC site was conducted by Controlled Demolition, Inc. of Baltimore, headed by Mark Loizeaux (Bollyn, 2001). Coincidentally they handled the Oklahoma City Murrah building as well. This action prevented investigators from determining what really brought that building down. In February 2000, a federal grand jury indicted Mr. Loizeaux, Douglas Loizeaux + CDI for allegedly falsely reporting campaign contributions. They were acquitted in September 2000.

As discussed above in detail, Dr. Thomas Eagar of MIT was apparently called upon to disperse disinformation regarding the WTC collapse. MIT is one of the best research groups for the Committee of 300 (Coleman, 1996). They received the Club of Rome's first "global planning contract." They regurgitated the typical Malthusian doctrine of not enough resources to go around, too many people, etc.

One of MIT's professors was Walt Ristow, who became an advisor to Presidents Kennedy and Johnson. This was in pursuit of the 300's plan to have socialist professors make U.S. policy.

00.000.1960 Ristow visited Russia for arms talks +

00.000.1964, as National Security Advisor, he pressed Johnson to commit troops to Vietnam.

MIT is actually a branch of the Tavistock Institute in conducting brainwashing activities in the U.S. Joining them in this role are other organizations such as the Brookings Institution, the Hudson Institute, the Stanford Research Institute, the Rand Corporation, etc. The fact that an MIT professor came out endorsing the official government explanation of the WTC collapse is reason enough to doubt its validity.

Escutem o banqueiro Sionista*, Paul Warburg:
"Teremos um governo mundial quer queiram quer não. A única questão é se esse governo será conseguido por conquista ou com consentimento. (17 de Fevereiro de 1950, tal como foi testemunhado no Senado Americano.
A intenção deles é ter total e completo controlo sobre qualquer ser humano existente no planeta e reduzir dramaticamente a população mundial em 2/3. Enquanto que o nome “Nova Ordem Mundial” é o termo mais frequentemente utilizado para nos referirmos vagamente a alguém envolvido nesta conspiração, o estudo de exactamente quem faz parte de este grupo é complexo e intrigante.
Em 1992, o Dr. John Coleman publicou o livro Conspirators Hierarchy: The Story of the Committee of 300 (Hierarquia dos Conspiradores: A História do Comité dos 300). Com uma boa bolsa de estudo e uma pesquisa meticulosa, Dr Coleman identifica os jogadores e cuidadosamente demonstra os planos da Nova Ordem Mundial para um domínio e controlo mundial. Na página 161 do livro Conspirators Hierarchy, Dr Coleman sumariza com precisão as intenções e propósitos dos Comité dos 300:
“Um Governo Mundial e um sistema único monetário, numa permanente hierarquia sem eleições que se auto nomeiam entre si na forma de um sistema feudal como era feito na Idade Média. Nesta entidade de “Um Mundo”, a população estará limitada por restrições no número de crianças por família, doenças, guerras, fome, até que 1 bilião de pessoas que são inúteis para a classe administradora, em áreas que serão claramente e estritamente definidas, sejam o total da população mundial.
Não existirá classe média, apenas governadores e escravos. Todas as leis serão uniformes de acordo com um sistema legal de tribunais mundiais que praticam o mesmo código legal unificado, reforçados por uma força policial e militar para impor as leis nos países formados onde não existirão fronteiras. O sistema estará na base dum estado de bem-estar, aqueles que forem obedientes e subversivos para o Governo serão recompensados com os meios para sobreviver; os rebeldes irão simplesmente morrer a fome ou serão considerados fora-da-lei e serão um alvo para qualquer pessoa que os queira matar. Possuir armas de fogo ou qualquer tipo de arma serão proibidas entre o povo.

Porquê que a conspiração é desconhecida?

To overthrow the House of Windsor, a smear campaign is being conducted to portray Prince Charles, heir apparent to the British throne, as the Antichrist.

" The AntiChrist and a Cup of Tea uniquely offers HARD-EVIDENCE concerning the identity of the antichrist of Bible prophecy, who appears to be PRINCE CHARLES OF WALES.  Prince Charles, unlike all previous candidates, fulfills the following scriptural criteria: His name calculates to 666 in both English and Hebrew; the symbols in his heraldic achievement or coat of arms are identical to those of the 'first beast' of Revelation 13; he claims descent from David, Jesus + Mohammed, but is most likely from the tribe of Dan and Odin (Satan); he literally serves the red dragon (Satan), which was central to his 1969 investiture as the Prince of Wales; he wants to be the King of Europe; he heads the United World Colleges; he steers the environmental ethics and business agendas of over 100 of the world's largest multinational corporations; he is credited for the success of the Rio Earth Summit and thus the Kyoto Protocol + he has spearheaded the push for enforceable environmentalism worldwide; he initiated the Global Security Programme and its lecture series, for which Mikhail Gorbachev has become a spokesperson; he has partnered with the United Nations and the World Bank; he appears to be responsible for the initiation of the current Mideast 'peace process' + has been directly involved since Yitzhak Rabin's funeral; he has taken a traceable bio-chip implant; and his media exposure has exceeded that of every other man in history.  The book also details the British Monarchy's centuries-long conspiracy for a 'New World Order' using the Order of the Garter, which is the core leadership of the Priory of Sion, the Knights Templar, the Rosicrucians, English and French Freemasonry + the Illuminati, as well as the overarching 'Committee of 300.'  This work is must reading for all who are interested in the modern fulfillment of Bible prophecy." - 728

"Even Britain's late Sir Iain Moncrieffe, her Majesty's Albany Herald of Arms, made a point

00.000.1982 of stating with regard to Charles, the prevailing Prince of Wales, that 'Today, perhaps the most famous of HRH Romanian relations is Prince Vlad Dracula the Impaler, an ancestral uncle who took the surname of Dracula because his father Prince Vlad Dracul was proud to be a Knight of the Dragon.'"

VAN DEN BROEK (Committee of 300 <the ultimate secret society> - you find the complete story by former intelligence officer Dr. John Coleman. - This committee is central in the drive for one World Government. VDB participated several times at Bilderberg meetings. Was the EU Commissioner who got the job to unify Europe - had to leave the job last year when scandals in the EU Commission became public. Was the President of the MAASTRICHT meeting. MAASTRICHT was the birthplace of the United Europe. Old German (?) way of writing MAASTRICHT is MASTRICHT (I have a picture and a map like that). Was the spokesman for Europe at the "Peace" Conference between the Arabs and the Israelis 1991, when the KISSINGER led George Bush government worked for "Peace" in the Middle-East.). Bush and GORABTCHOV were also there.

In his book, The Committee of 300, former British MI6 officer John Coleman revealed that a high level Fabian Society member and agent of the Tavistock Institute also managed the Heritage Foundation. There is no mention of Sir Peter Vickers Hall on the Heritage website, but then Heritage has covered its fascist tracks on other occasions: "[Roger] Pearson's tenure on Heritage's Policy Review editorial board was short lived. . . due to a Washington Post expose of the racist and fascist undercurrents of a World Anti-Communist League chaired by Pearson in May 1978 in Washington, D.C." 68. Dr. Coleman's remarks are worth including as supportive of other sources which locate the origins of the "right-wing" Council for National Policy in the British Round Table and Fabian Society, which has the reputation of being a "socialist" organization. "The Committee of 300 through its many affiliated organizations was able to nullify the Reagan presidency. Here is what Stuart Butler of the Heritage Foundation had to say on the subject 'The right thought it had won

00.000.1980 but in fact it have lost.' What Butler was referring to was the situation in which the Right found itself when it realized that every single position of importance in the Reagan administration was filled by Fabianist appointees recommended by the Heritage Foundation. Butler went on to say that Heritage would use rightwing ideas to impose leftwing radical principles upon the United States, the same radical ideas which Sir Peter Vickers Hall, top Fabianist in the U.S. and the number one man at Heritage, had been openly discussing during the election year.

"Sir Peter Vickers Hall remained an active Fabianist even though he was running a conservative 'think tank.' As a member of the British oligarchical Vickers armament manufacturing family, he had position and power. The Vickers family supplied both sides in the First World War and again during Hitler's rise to power. Vickers' official cover was the University of California's Urban and Regional Development Institute. He was a longtime confidant of British Labour leader and Committee of 300 member Anthony Wedgewood Benn. Both Vickers and Benn are integrated with the Tavistock Institute for Human Relations, the premiere brainwashing institution in the world." 69.

From 1776 when Jeremy Bentham and William Petty, the Earl of Shelburne, fresh from the triumph of the French Revolution which they planned and ran, were drafted by the British Crown to bring their combined experience to bear against the colonists, to 1812 when the British sacked and burned Washington, destroying secret documents that would have exposed the treason being worked against the young United States of America to the Watergating of President Nixon and assassination of President Kennedy, the hand of the Committee of 300 is clearly visible. This book is an attempt to open the eyes of the American people to this terrible truth: We are not an independent nation, nor can we ever be, as long as we are ruled by an invisible government, the Committee of 300.

There is not one single aspect of life in America that is not watched over, steered in the "right" direction, manipulated + controlled by the invisible government of the Committee of 300. There is not one elected official or political leader that is not subject to its rule.

The invisible government of the Committee of 300 has put tremendous pressure on America to change its ways--for the worse. America is the last bastion of freedom and unless our freedoms are taken away from us, progress toward a One World Government will be considerably slowed. Such an undertaking as a One World Government is a massive one, requiring a great deal of skill, organizing abilities, control of governments and their policies. The only organization that could possibly have undertaken this mammoth task with any hope of success is the Committee of 300 + we have seen just how far it has come toward total success. Above all, the battle is a spiritual one. Unfortunately, the Christian churches have become little more than social clubs run by the infinitely evil World Council of Churches (WCC), whose beginnings lie not in Moscow but in the City of London, as we see from the chart at the end of the book which gives the structure of the One World Government Church. This body was set up in the 1920's to serve as a vehicle for One World Government policies + stands as a monument to the long-range planning capabilities of the Committee of 300.

On January 8th, 1983, before their big meeting on January lOth-11th, Hans Vogel, a leading Club of Rome member, was received at the White House. President Ronald Reagan had invited George Schultz, Caspar Weinberger, George Kennan and Lane Kirkland to be present at his meeting with Vogel, who explained to President Reagan what the aims and objectives of the Ditchley Group were. >From that day, President Reagan did an about face and worked with the Committee of 300's various agencies to advance the International Monetary Fund and the Bank of International Settlements as the authority on U.S domestic and foreign monetary policies.

The Ditchley Plan to usurp control of the fiscal and monetary policies of the USAwas the brainchild of Sir Harold Lever, a strong backer of Zionism and a close confidant of members of the British royal family and a member of the Committee of 300. Sir Harold Lever was a director of the giant UNILEVER conglomerate, an important Committee of 300 company. Lever's plan called for the IMF's influence to be broadened so that it could influence central banks of all nations, including the U.S. and guide them into the hands of a One World Government bank.

Thrusting aside the pious platitudes and posturings of defending the Constitution, Senator Sam Ervin did more to change the USAthan anything President Nixon was alleged to have done + the USAhas not yet recovered from the ear-mortal wound of Watergate, a Committee of 300 sponsored operation conducted by the Royal Institute for International Affairs, the Round Table and "hands on" MI6 officers based in the United States.

Yet it shows the immense power of the press, as Lippman + Bernays had quite properly anticipated, in that Mrs. Graham, long suspected of the murder of her husband, Philip L. Graham--officially classed as "suicide"--should have retained any credibility at all. Other traitors who should have been indicted for insurrection and treason were Kissinger, Haig, Halperin, Ellsberg, Young, McCord, Joseph Califano and Chomsky of IPS and those CIA operatives who went to McCord's house and burned all of his papers. Again, it is worth repeating that Watergate, like many other operations we do not have the space to include here, demonstrated the COMPLETE CONTROL exercised over the USAby the Committee of 300.

Life is religion. Life experiences reflect how one interacts with God. Those who are asleep are those of little faith in terms of their interaction with the creation. Some people think that the world exists for them to overcome or ignore or shut out. For those individuals, the worlds will cease. They will become exactly what they give to life. They will become merely a dream in the 'past.' People who pay strict attention to objective reality right and left, become the reality of the 'Future.'

The Bush and Cheney Drug Empire http://www.fromthewilderness.com/free/ciadrugs/bush-cheney-drugs.html   http://www.tarpley.net/bushb.htm   Both Bush and Kerry are sworn to secrecy and do not talk about Skull and Bones. Is their personal allegiance to Skull and Bones or to the American people? Should Bush and Kerry be allowed to be members of a highly secret organization, where many American Presidents and other high government officials and key business leaders come out of, without the American people knowing what this organization stands for? How can this be? Shouldn't the media be intensely questioning both Bush and Kerry about Skull and Bones, especially in the Presidential debates? Shouldn't the FBI, CIA and every other intelligence agency be investigating Skull and Bones on behalf of the American people to see "what is going on here?" And while they're at it, they could investigate the other connected "elite" secret societies, who have an agenda of "total world domination" and who exist all over the world >>>Illuminati, Bildebergers, Trilateral Commission, Committee of 300, Round Table, Club of Rome, Council of Foreign Relations etc. Forget that idea because the C.I.A., F.B.I and every other U.S. government agency is controlled by the Illuminati also. And to anyone who cannot bring themselves to begin to believe any of this, please take the time and put the names of each of these organizations into www.google.com and read about them to your amazement. Yes these connected "elite" secret societies of of a few extremely wealthy individuals really do exist and meet on a regular basis to pursue their quest for a One World Government, organized as a global fascist police State, ruled by a so-called "elitist" dictatorship!

University of Pennsylvania, Wharton School of Finance & Commerce Founded by Eric Trist
One of the "brain trusts" of Tavistock, Wharton has become one of the more important Tavistock in so far as "Behavioral Research" is concerned. Wharton attracts clients such as the U.S. Department of Labor---which teaches how to produce "cooked" statistics at the Wharton Econometric Forecasting Associates Incorporated. This method was very much in demand as we came to the close of 1991 with millions more out of work than was reflected in USDL statistics. Wharton's ECONOMETRIC MODELING is used by every major Committee of 300 company in the United States, Western Europe, the International Monetary Fund, the United Nations + the World Bank.

Hudson Institute
This institution has done more to shape the way Americans react to political and social events, think, vote and generally conduct themselves than perhaps any except the BIG FIVE. Hudson specializes in defense policy research and relations with the USSR. Most of its military work is classified as SECRET. (One idea during the Vietnam War was to build a moat around Saigon.) Hudson may be properly classified as one of the Committee of 300's BRAINWASHING establishments. One of its largest clients is the U.S. Department of Defense which includes matters of civil defense, national security, military policy and arms control.

If you are puzzled and perplexed as to why things are occurring that we as a nation don't like yet seem powerless to prevent, why it is that the USAalways seems to back the wrong horse, why our former social and moral values have been turned aside and seemingly buried; if you are confused by the many conspiracy theories, then The Conspirators' Hierarchy: The Committee of 300 will clearly establish that these conditions have been deliberately created to bring us to our knees.

That there is such a body called The Committee of 300, is graphically told in this book. When most people attempt to address our problems, they speak or write about "THEY." This book tells precisely who they are + what they have planned for our future. It tells how they have been at war with the American nation for over 50 years, a war that we, the people, are losing. It tells what methods they use and exactly how they have us all brainwashed.

CONSPIRATORS' HIERARCHY:
THE STORY OF THE COMMITTEE OF 300
by Dr. John Coleman

19.Dec.2005 
http://www.wealth4freedom.com/truth/300.htm

Committee of 300

(aka Olympians)

This committee of 300 is modeled after the British East India Company's Council of 300, founded by the British aristocracy in 1727. Most of its immense wealth arose out of the opium trade with China. This group is responsible for the phony drug wars here in the U.S. These phony drug wars were to get us to give away our constitutional rights. Asset forfeiture is a prime example, where huge assets can be seized without trail and no proof of guilt needed. Also the Committee of 300 long ago decreed that there shall be a smaller-much smaller-and better world, that is, their idea of what constitutes a better world.

The myriads of useless eaters consuming scarce natural resources were to be culled. Industrial progress supports population growth. Therefore the command to multiply and subdue the earth found in Genesis had to be subverted. This called for an attack upon Christianity; the slow but sure disintegration of industrial nation states; the destruction of hundreds of millions of people, referred to by the Committee of 300 as "surplus population, " and the removal of any leader who dared to stand in the way of the Committee's global planning to reach the foregoing objectives. Not that the U.S. government didn't know, but as it was part of the conspiracy, it helped to keep the lid on information rather than let the truth be known. Queen, Elizabeth II, is the head of the Committee of 300.

The Committee of 300 looks to social convulsions on a global scale, followed by depressions, as a softening-up technique for bigger things to come, as its principal method of creating masses of people all over the world who will become its "welfare" recipients of the future. The committee appears to base much of its important decisions affecting mankind on the philosophy of Polish aristocrat, Felix Dzerzinski, who regarded mankind as being slightly above the level of cattle. As a close friend of British intelligence agent Sydney Reilly (Reilly was actually Dzerzinski's controller during the Bolshevik Revolution's formative years), he often confided in Reilly during his drinking bouts. Dzerzinski was, of course, the beast who ran the Red Terror apparatus. He once told Reilly, while the two were on a drinking binge, that "Man is of no importance. Look at what happens when you starve him. He begins to eat his dead companions to stay alive. Man is only interested in his own survival. That is all that counts. All the Spinoza stuff is a lot of rubbish."

http://www.iiss.org Critical description of IISS from "The Committee of 300" by Dr John Coleman: page 178

The IISS is the vehicle for MI6-Tavistock black propaganda + wet jobs (an intelligence over name denoting an operation where bloodshed is required), adverse nuclear incidents and terrorism, which goes to the world's press for dissemination, as well as to governments and military establishments.

Membership in the IISS includes representatives of 87 major wire services and press associations, as well as 138 senior editors and columnists....

The IISS is nothing more than a higher echelon opinion maker, as defined by Lippmann + Bernays.

In the writing of books + in newspapers, IISS was formed to be a coordinating centre for not only creating opinions, but to get those opinions and scenarios out much faster and to a far greater audience than could be reached by a book for example....

"The conscious and intelligent manipulation of organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in a democratic society.

Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government, which is the true ruling power in our country......

We are governed, our minds are moulded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of...." Edward Bernays
