In a minute, I’m going to present a stunning 1978 conversation between a U.S. reporter and two members of the Trilateral Commission.
I discovered the conversation in the late 1980s. Ever since then, I’ve been looking at it from various angles, finding new implications. Here, I want to point out that the conversation was public knowledge at the time.
Anyone who was anyone in Washington politics, in media and in think tanks had access to it and understood its meaning.
But no one shouted from the rooftops. No one used the conversation to force a scandal. No one protested loudly.
The conversation revealed that the entire basis of the Constitution had been torpedoed, that the people who were running U.S. national policy were agents of an elite shadow group. No question about it.

Here’s the current breaking Al Sharpton story from April 7 by The Smoking Gun:
The former mob snitch [Sharpton] has become a regular in the White House, where he has met with the 44th president in the East Room, the Roosevelt Room, and the Oval Office. He has also attended Obama Christmas parties, speeches, policy announcements, and even watched a Super Bowl with the First Family…
His [Sharpton’s] former confederates were a decidedly dicier lot: ex-convicts, extortionists, heroin traffickers, and mob henchmen. The man’s [Sharpton’s] surreptitious recordings, FBI records show, aided his government handlers in the successful targeting of powerful Mafia figures with nicknames like Benny Eggs, Chin, Fritzy, Corky, and Baldy Dom…
In fact, by any measure, Sharpton himself was a Mafia “associate,” the law enforcement designation given to mob affiliates who, while not initiated, work with and for crime family members.

The old movie line, “Stop me before I kill again,” comes to mind. In this case, however, it’s “Stop me before I kill myself.”
PandoDaily has uncovered a wide-ranging scandal among tech giants. It’s basically an illegal scheme to limit wages by agreeing not to lure employees away from each other with the promise of higher salaries (see also this link).
How many companies are involved? At first, there were just a few. But Pando has found evidence that many giants are in on the scheme, and “all told, the combined workforces of the companies involved totals well over a million employees.”
The companies are Google, Apple, Microsoft, Pixar, Intuit, Lucasfilm, IBM, Dell, eBay, Comcast, Clear Channel, Dreamworks, Adobe, Genentech. That’s quite a list.
Obviously, these corporations fear dents in their bottom lines. Prior to wage-fixing agreements, they were engaged in escalating bidding wars to grab employees from each other.

I’ve written several articles questioning Edward Snowden’s past history.
Now, another serious point comes to light.
Snowden claims he raised concerns about NSA spying more than 10 times before he went rogue with stolen files.
Here is the quote from the Washington Post (March 7):
Former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden said he repeatedly tried to go through official channels to raise concerns about government snooping programs but that his warnings fell on the deaf ears. In testimony to the European Parliament released Friday morning, Snowden wrote that he reported policy or legal issues related to spying programs to more than 10 officials, but as a contractor he had no legal avenue to pursue further whistleblowing.
‘Yes [said Snowden]. I had reported these clearly problematic [NSA] programs to more than ten distinct officials, none of whom took any action to address them…’

On one level, the struggle over Ukraine is a deadly U.S./EU/Russian game of territory, involving governments, intelligence agencies, corporations and banks.
But at a higher level, as usual, sit the elite globalist players. And their motives are different. They see every conflict as an opportunity to negotiate the aftermath.
And that negotiation produces a codified structure of cooperation between the enemies that is larger than the previous structure.
For example, there were banks and corporations (Standard Oil, ITT, IBM, etc.) who were aiding both sides in World War II. And in the aftermath, a much larger market for goods (Europe, U.S.) was created.
The U.S. government, in its European rebuilding efforts, made sure of that.
Post-World War II, Europe itself started on the road toward creating the current European Union, which is a vast bureaucracy that sits over the entire continent.

“Padre, there are subtleties! We are not concerned with motives, with the higher ethics. We are concerned only with cutting down crime and with relieving the ghastly congestion in our prisons. He will be your true Christian, ready to turn the other cheek, ready to be crucified rather than crucify, sick to the heart at the thought of killing a fly. Reclamation! Joy before the angels of God! The point is that it works. ” — Minister in “A Clockwork Orange,” an adaptation of Anthony Burgess’ 1962 dystopian novella of the same name
Fingers pointed like a gun. A Pop Tart chewed into the shape of a gun. A toy gun.
All over America, schools are exercising what they call zero-tolerance policy to suspend young children packing “suggestions of guns.”
Behind this practice is the idea that populations can be conditioned against owning real guns. Start early, indoctrinate the kids and society will change.

Peter Pundit, who has appeared on more than 1,000 television news shows, sits in front of a mirror and combs his hair. He applies a bit of powder to his cheeks.
His specialty is war. When troops invade and bombs drop, he’s busy making trenchant comments on the news. These days, things are rather quiet.
He longs for the war that wasn’t. Syria.
A voice in Pundit’s head begins talking. He’s heard it before. It’s strong, too strong for television. But he likes it. He wishes he could use it in public.
The voice says:
You’re just a click away on your remote. Get the popcorn. It’s a blast. This one has moral stature. They used chemical weapons, so they’ll pay.
Welcome to the Syrian theater! All the players are assembled. Which one will intervene and turn a two-day blitz into a global conflagration?
