World Powers Threaten Sanctions Against Iran

World powers, including Russia, threatened “further appropriate measures” on Wednesday if Iran failed to comply with U.N. resolutions demanding that it suspend nuclear enrichment.

Iran reiterated it would not bow to U.N. Security Council demands to suspend uranium enrichment over Western fears it is developing nuclear arms. The world’s fourth biggest oil exporter says its nuclear program is only for power generation.

Iranian chief nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani is due to hold talks on Thursday with European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana on the long-running dispute over Tehran’s nuclear program. Diplomats do not expect a breakthrough.

“Should Iran continue not to heed the call of the Security Council, we shall support further appropriate measures as agreed in Resolution 1747,” the Group of Eight (G8) foreign ministers said in a statement issued at a meeting in Potsdam, Germany.

The term “appropriate measures” is widely seen as diplomatic code for sanctions. The U.N. has already imposed two rounds of sanctions on Iran for failing to suspend uranium enrichment, a process of purifying uranium for power plants or weapons.

Besides major Western powers and Japan, the G8 grouping of leading industrialized nations also includes Russia, which has backed previous U.N. resolutions in the past while stressing Iran’s right to a peaceful nuclear program.

The G8 countries also said they “deeply deplore the fact that, as evidenced by the (International Atomic Energy Agency) Director General’s latest report to the Security Council, Iran has expanded its enrichment program.”

Security Council resolution 1747 gave Tehran a 60-day deadline to freeze all enrichment work. Iran ignored the deadline, which expired last week.


Solana told reporters in Berlin Thursday’s meeting with Larijani in Madrid might run into Friday.

“We have not even started negotiations,” he said. “This is paving the way for negotiations. I cannot give you a preview of what is going to happen, but I hope very much that we will be able to move the preparations for the actual negotiations.”

The meeting between Larijani and Solana, acting on behalf of world powers, will be the first since U.S. and Iranian officials held rare face-to-face discussions in Iraq, although atomic affairs were not on the agenda in Baghdad.

The United States, which accuses Iran of seeking to build an atomic bomb, has been leading efforts to isolate it over its nuclear program and also says it is stirring up violence in Iraq. Iran denies both charges.

“Suspension is not a solution to Iran’s nuclear issue … Iran cannot accept suspension,” Larijani told reporters before departing for Madrid.

“We have no conditions and we are ready for constructive talks but we will not accept any preconditions. We are ready to remove concerns over Iran’s atomic issue.”

On arrival in Madrid, he said: “We have walked on a long path relatively in our talks with Mr. Solana and we basically understand each others’ principles of thinking.”

Mark Fitzpatrick, chief non-proliferation analyst at London’s International Institute for Strategic Studies and a former senior U.S. State Department official, said: “I do not expect much. The two sides remain very far apart.

Previous meetings have failed to persuade Tehran to obey U.N. resolutions demanding it halt enrichment.

“We are ready to hold talks without preconditions, any day, any time, but (the Europeans) should change their logic and use this opportunity which Iran has created for constructive talks. Previous methods will lead them nowhere,” Larijani said.

“We are not against discussing such solutions during talks, but the ground should be paved for Iran to continue its nuclear work.”

He said Iran was staying within regulations laid down by the IAEA. The U.N. watchdog says Iran has failed to answer questions to clarify its intentions with the nuclear program.

Iran temporarily halted enrichment under a previous deal with the EU, but that pact collapsed in 2005.

Solana is empowered by the five permanent Security Council members — the United States, Russia, China, Britain and France — plus Germany and the EU to explore the scope for formal talks on a package of economic, technological and political initiatives if Iran suspends enrichment.

Harsh Interrogations Based on Soviet Methods

NY Times | May 30, 2007

The techniques later adopted by the C.I.A. and Special Operations officers in Iraq were based, at least in part, on how the Soviet Union and its allies were believed to treat prisoners

As the Bush administration completes secret new rules governing interrogations, a group of experts advising the intelligence agencies are arguing that the harsh techniques used since the 2001 terrorist attacks are outmoded, amateurish and unreliable.

The psychologists and other specialists, commissioned by the Intelligence Science Board, make the case that more than five years after the Sept. 11 attacks, the Bush administration has yet to create an elite corps of interrogators trained to glean secrets from terrorism suspects.

While billions are spent each year to upgrade satellites and other high-tech spy machinery, the experts say, interrogation methods — possibly the most important source of information on groups like Al Qaeda — are a hodgepodge that date from the 1950s, or are modeled on old Soviet practices.

Some of the study participants argue that interrogation should be restructured using lessons from many fields, including the tricks of veteran homicide detectives, the persuasive techniques of sophisticated marketing and models from American history.

The science board critique comes as ethical concerns about harsh interrogations are being voiced by current and former government officials. The top commander in Iraq, Gen. David H. Petraeus, sent a letter to troops this month warning that “expedient methods” using force violated American values.

In a blistering lecture delivered last month, a former adviser to Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice called “immoral” some interrogation tactics used by the Central Intelligence Agency and the Pentagon.

But in meetings with intelligence officials and in a 325-page initial report completed in December, the researchers have pressed a more practical critique: there is little evidence, they say, that harsh methods produce the best intelligence.

“There’s an assumption that often passes for common sense that the more pain imposed on someone, the more likely they are to comply,” said Randy Borum, a psychologist at the University of South Florida who, like several of the study’s contributors, is a consultant for the Defense Department.

The Bush administration is nearing completion of a long-delayed executive order that will set new rules for interrogations by the Central Intelligence Agency. The order is expected to ban the harshest techniques used in the past, including the simulated drowning tactic known as waterboarding, but to authorize some methods that go beyond those allowed in the military by the Army Field Manual.

President Bush has insisted that those secret “enhanced” techniques are crucial, and he is far from alone. The notion that turning up pressure and pain on a prisoner will produce valuable intelligence is a staple of popular culture from the television series “24” to the recent Republican presidential debate, where some candidates tried to outdo one another in vowing to get tough on captured terrorists. A 2005 Harvard study supported the selective use of “highly coercive” techniques.

But some of the experts involved in the interrogation review, called “Educing Information,” say that during World War II, German and Japanese prisoners were effectively questioned without coercion.

“It far outclassed what we’ve done,” said Steven M. Kleinman, a former Air Force interrogator and trainer, who has studied the World War II program of interrogating Germans. The questioners at Fort Hunt, Va., “had graduate degrees in law and philosophy, spoke the language flawlessly,” and prepared for four to six hours for each hour of questioning, said Mr. Kleinman, who wrote two chapters for the December report.

Mr. Kleinman, who worked as an interrogator in Iraq in 2003, called the post-Sept. 11 efforts “amateurish” by comparison to the World War II program, with inexperienced interrogators who worked through interpreters and had little familiarity with the prisoners’ culture.

The Intelligence Science Board study has a chapter on the long history of police interrogations, which it suggests may contain lessons on eliciting accurate confessions. And Mr. Borum, the psychologist, said modern marketing may be a source of relevant insights into how to influence a prisoner’s willingness to provide information.

“We have a whole social science literature on persuasion,” Mr. Borum said. “It’s mostly on how to get a person to buy a certain brand of toothpaste. But it certainly could be useful in improving interrogation.”

Robert F. Coulam, a research professor and attorney at Simmons College and a study participant, said that the government’s most vigorous work on interrogation to date has been in seeking legal justifications for harsh tactics. Even today, he said, “there’s nothing like the mobilization of effort and political energy that was put into relaxing the rules” governing interrogation.

The director of the science board project, Robert A. Fein, a forensic psychologist at Harvard, declined to speak on the record.

In a prologue to the December report, the first of a planned series, Mr. Fein said the shortage of research meant that many American interrogators were “forced to ‘make it up’ on the fly,” resulting in “unfortunate cases of abuse.”

But associates say Mr. Fein does not want to antagonize intelligence officials, whom he hopes to persuade to bring the reality check of research to bear on interrogation practices.

Many of the techniques that have come in for such criticism were based on those used in the military’s Survival, Evasion, Resistance and Escape training, or SERE, in which for decades American service members were given a sample of the brutal treatment they might face if captured.

Because the training was developed during the cold war, the techniques later adopted by the C.I.A. and Special Operations officers in Iraq were based, at least in part, on how the Soviet Union and its allies were believed to treat prisoners. Such techniques included prolonged use of stress positions, exposure to heat and cold, sleep deprivation and even waterboarding.

A report on detainee abuse by the Defense Department’s inspector general, completed in August but declassified and released May 18, gives new details of how the military training was “reverse engineered” for use by American interrogators. It says that as early as 2002, some SERE trainers and some military intelligence officers vehemently objected to the use of the techniques, but their protests were ignored.

Senator Carl Levin, a Michigan Democrat and chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, said he found the report “very troubling” and intended to hold hearings on how the SERE training methods became the basis for interrogation. “They were put to a purpose that was never intended,” Mr. Levin said.

Jack Bauer’s Uncle Joe

I think this information is already out there, but it bears repeating. A report by the Intelligence Science Board gives insight into how our coercive interrogation techniques were developed.

The study mentions the careful interrogation techniques used to interrogate German and Japanese troops in WWII, undertaken by highly educated interrogators, fluent in the language, spent six hours preparing for every hour of interrogation. But that isn’t the model. Rather, we based our techniques on those used by the Soviet Union to elicit information from prisoners:

Kissinger, Rockefeller and “War Czar” to attend clandestine Bilderberg meeting in Turkey

WorldNet Daily |  May 30, 2007

Kissinger, Rockefeller, media moguls among those scheduled to attend

The super-secret Bilderberg Group, an organization of powerful international elites, is set to meet this week somewhere in Turkey – but even the precise location is a mystery.

The meeting begins Thursday and continues through Sunday.

Those expected to attend include Donald Graham, chairman and chief executive officer of the Washington Post, Richard N. Haass, president of the Council on Foreign Relations, Henry Kissinger, David Rockefeller, John Vinocur, senior correspondent of the International Herald Tribune, Paul Gigot, editor of the editorial page of the Wall Street Journal, Nicholas Beytout, editor-in-chief of Le Figaro, George David, chairman of Coca-Cola, Martin Feldstein, president and chief executive officer of the National Bureau of Economic Research, Timothy F. Geithner, president and chief executive officer of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, Vernon Jordan, senior managing director of Lazard Freres & Co., Anatole Kaletsky, editor at large of the Times of London and General William Luti, the new “war czar.”

According to reports from Turkey, Iran’s nuclear weapons ambitions and global energy issues will be on the agenda – but only invitees know for sure.

Welcome to the mysterious world of secret societies.

Did someone say “secret societies”?

“Most people don’t realize they exist because their minds have been conditioned to reject any thought of such organizations,” explains Dr. Stanley Monteith, a medical doctor by training, who set out on a mission to research groups like the Bilderbergers 40 years ago.

The results of his startling research is a little book called “Brotherhood of Darkness,” in which he exposes the global agenda of organizations such as the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission.

How important are events like this weekend’s Bilderberg conference?

It may not make any difference now, but in 2004, according to the New York Times, it was the standout “performance” of Sen. John Edwards at the super-secret Bilderberg meeting in Italy that sealed the deal on his nomination as John Kerry’s vice presidential running mate.

Since 1954, the Bilderberg group has convened government, business, academic and journalistic representatives from the U.S., Canada and Europe with the express purpose of exploring the future of the North Atlantic community. The first meeting was held at the Hotel de Bilderberg in the Netherlands – thus the name.

According to sources that have penetrated the high-security meetings in the past, the Bilderberg meetings emphasize a globalist agenda and promote the idea that the notion of national sovereignty is antiquated and regressive.

“It’s officially described as a private gathering,” noted a BBC report in 2003, “but with a guest list including the heads of European and American corporations, political leaders and a few intellectuals, it’s one of the most influential organizations on the planet.”

And according to a BBC report on 2004’s conference in Stresa: “Not a word of what is said at Bilderberg meetings can be breathed outside. No reporters are invited in and while confidential minutes of meetings are taken, names are not noted. The shadowy aura extends further – the anonymous answerphone message, for example; the fact that conference venues are kept secret. The group, which includes luminaries such as Henry Kissinger and former UK chancellor Kenneth Clarke, does not even have a website.”

But, counter participants, the secrecy is not evidence of a grand conspiracy, but only an opportunity to speak frankly with other world leaders out of the limelight of press coverage and its inevitable repercussions.

“There’s absolutely nothing in it,” argues the UK’s Lord Denis Healey, one of the four founders of Bilderberg. “We never sought to reach a consensus on the big issues at Bilderberg,” he told the BBC. “It’s simply a place for discussion.”

Hecklers Razz Giuliani Over Attacks of 9/11

The Sun | May 30, 2007

Critics questioning Mayor Giuliani’s stewardship after the World Trade Center attacks marred the presidential candidate’s campaign fund-raising swing through his hometown yesterday that was intended to highlight his national security credentials.

The day got off to a rocky start for Mr. Giuliani, who a day after celebrating his 63rd birthday barnstormed through the city to collect campaign contributions for his White House bid.

During his first stop of the day, in City Island, a woman confronted Mr. Giuliani, accusing him of knowing the twin towers would collapse but allowing rescue workers to remain inside, according to press accounts.

In the evening, reporters expecting to question the Republican at an event in Bay Ridge were instead left covering a street side protest, where the police shut down the block to traffic and cordoned off the anti-Giuliani protesters in a pen across the street.

“We’re trying to peel him back like an onion, layer by layer,” the president of the Uniformed Fire Officers Association, Peter Gorman, said at the rally. “And our message to Rudy is: We’ll be here today on your home turf, in any borough, in any state.”

The crowd included several dozen people, mostly firefighters, who served at the World Trade Center site and family members of those who died after the September 11, 2001, attacks.

Chavez Threatens Second TV Station Shutdown as Protests Mount

Bloomberg | May 29, 2007

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez threatened to shut down the country’s last opposition television station as students took to the streets for a third day, protesting what they say is a crackdown on free speech.

Chavez said he had “no fear” of criticism he might face for closing Globovision, a 24-hour news channel that he accused of trying to instigate his assassination. The threat follows the May 27 shutdown of Radio Caracas Television, Venezuela’s most- watched TV network.

“They’re trying to light the streets on fire and justify violence,” Chavez said in a speech to supporters televised from Vargas state. “I call on the people in the slums to be alert to defend the revolution.”

The three days of disorder in Caracas and other major cities marks the longest stretch of anti-Chavez demonstrations since March 2004, when opposition-led protests demanding a recall referendum left nine dead. Clashes across Venezuela between the police and marchers injured at least 40 yesterday, Globovision reported.

The yield on the 2019 government bond, known as TICC, jumped 4 basis points to 4.86 percent, the highest since March 26, according to Econoinvest Casa de Bolsa CA prices. The price dropped 0.4 to 103.50 cents on the dollar at 5 p.m. New York time.

`Too Far’

The cost of buying protection on $10 million of Venezuela’s bonds for five years had its biggest jump since Jan. 9, surging 17 percent to $198,000, according Credit Market Analysis. Credit-default swaps are financial instruments based on bonds and loans that are used to speculate on the ability of countries or companies to repay debt. An increase in price suggests deterioration in credit quality.

University students gathered in eastern Caracas while Chavez supporters rallied downtown to support the government’s refusal to renew the license of RCTV, as the country’s oldest broadcaster was known.

Communications and Information Minister William Lara added pressure on non-state television outlets yesterday, asking for an attorney-general’s probe of Globovision Tele CA and Time Warner Inc.’s Cable Network News for allegedly inciting violence. Globovision, founded in 1994, is owned by an investor group called Corporacion GV Inversiones CA.

RCTV, which had a national distribution, and Globovision, available only in Caracas and Carabobo state, were the only prominent stations critical of the government.


In an interview yesterday, Globovision General Manager Alberto Federico Ravell called the accusations “ridiculous.”

“Chavez has just gone too far this time,” Ruben Briceno, 22, a Central University of Venezuela student majoring in social work, said in an interview. “First it was the shutdown of Radio Caracas. What will come next?”

Chavez said today the students are being manipulated by people he didn’t cite. National Assembly Vice President Roberto Hernandez said the protests are organized by opposition parties seeking to overthrow Chavez.

“They will not succeed in weakening this government,” Hernandez told reporters in Caracas

Interior and Justice Minister Pedro Carreno said state intelligence and police services were prepared to quell any effort to destabilize the county.

In the days leading up to the RCTV shutdown, Chavez said the company’s executives had used the network to help incite a coup that ousted him from office for two days in 2002. While RCTV covered his ouster without interruption, it failed to report his government’s return to power and ran cartoon shows.


During the coup and strike, the four biggest private stations — RCTV, Venevision, Televen and Globovision — ran commercials calling for Chavez to resign, said Daniel Hellinger a professor of political science at Webster University in St. Louis and author of several books about Chavez.

“They say I’m a tyrant,” Chavez said today. “Who accuses me? Serpents.”

Globovision television station showed students putting up barricades on the streets of El Junquito, a town about 20 kilometers (12 miles) east of Caracas. Another group blocked traffic for a time on the Prados del Este highway in Caracas, creating logjams, it said.

Groups of RCTV supporters held a demonstration in front of the Organization of American States’ local offices. The police deployed 4,000 officers to protect the surroundings of the OAS offices.

More Scrutiny

RCTV’s shutdown, coupled with the probes of CNN and Globovision, will intensify international scrutiny of free speech in Venezuela, Miguel Henrique Otero, editor-president of Caracas-based El Nacional, the nation’s second-most read newspaper, said in an interview yesterday.

“Press relations with governments with authoritarian inclinations are always difficult,” said Paul Knox, chair of school of journalism at Ryerson University in Toronto. “At this point, it’s fair to say that the Chavez government has an authoritarian inclination.”

The U.S. refrained from commenting until today when the State Department said it was joining the international community’s condemnation, citing the European Parliament and Chilean Senate and groups such as Reporters without Borders, Human Rights Watch and the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights.

Venezuela should “abide by its commitments under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the Inter-American Democratic Charter,” State Department spokesman Tom Casey said in a statement distributed by e-mail.

Russian School Terror Victims Trash Court Following Amnesty Ruling for Police

RIA Novosti | May 29, 2007
Women who suffered from the terror in Beslan in 2004 staged a riot in a local court when it failed to pass a verdict Tuesday on policemen accused of neglecting their duty.

The court launched hearings early Tuesday. However, Judge Vitaly Besolov failed to pronounce a verdict even at a postponed meeting at 4:00 p.m., as the complainants refused to hear it in the absence of the defendants.

The three policemen accused of negligence that allowed terrorists to seize a school in the southern Russian town of Beslan in September 2004 went on trial in March 2006. Their lawyers asked for an amnesty May 10, citing amendments to the law on amnesty for offenders who committed crimes during Russia’s counterterrorism operation in the Southern Federal District.

The women, the bulk of them the mothers of children killed in the school siege, started to tear down window blinds and break windows and furniture in the court, forcing the judge to leave without saying a word.

A total of 331 people, including 186 children, were killed in Beslan.

Pfizer faces charges in child deaths

St. Petersburg Times | May 30, 2007

Nigerian officials say Pfizer’s actions resulted in the deaths of an unspecified number of children and left others deaf, paralyzed, blind or brain-damaged.

Officials in Nigeria have brought criminal charges against pharmaceutical giant Pfizer Inc. for the company’s alleged role in the deaths of children who received an unapproved drug during a meningitis epidemic. Authorities in Kano, the country’s largest state, filed eight charges this month related to the 1996 clinical trial, including counts of criminal conspiracy and voluntarily causing grievous harm.

They also filed a civil lawsuit seeking more than $2-billion in damages and restitution from Pfizer, the world’s largest drug company. The government alleges that Pfizer researchers selected 200 children and infants from crowds at a makeshift epidemic camp in Kano and gave about half of the group an untested antibiotic called Trovan.

Researchers gave the other children what the lawsuit describes as a dangerously low dose of a comparison drug made by Hoffman-Laroche. Nigerian officials say Pfizer’s actions resulted in the deaths of an unspecified number of children and left others deaf, paralyzed, blind or brain-damaged. In a written statement, Pfizer said the company believes it did nothing wrong and emphasized that children with meningitis have a high fatality rate.

Frustrated Sheehan gives up anti-war role saying “Democrats caved in to Bush”

Houston Chronicle | May 29, 2007

If only Cindy Sheehan knew that both parties are owned and controlled by David Rockefeller’s Council on Foreign Relations, then she might understand why there is no real opposition to Bush in the congress. If she only knew that politics is a staged theatrical Good-Cop/Bad-Cop dog-and-pony show, she might start to think that the real powers behind the war are the New World Order banking elites who own it all and act as if we were their chattel property to do with as they see fit. If she really wanted to protest the war, she would have gone and stood in front of 146 65th St in New York, where that spider, David Rockefeller, weaves his web of intrigue. But instead, she allied herself with the Marxist Left who are also controlled and bankrolled by the same banking elite money and have been since before the Bolshevik Revolution.

Everybody, no matter where you are on the political spectrum, it is time to take off your blinders and see the big picture. It is not a matter of Right vs Left. It is about the elites vs the people. This is true political maturity.


Leading voice against the war says she’s had it

Cindy Sheehan, the soldier’s mother who galvanized an anti-war movement with her monthlong protest outside President Bush’s ranch, said Tuesday she’s done being the public face of the movement.

“I’ve been wondering why I’m killing myself and wondering why the Democrats caved in to George Bush,” Sheehan said while driving from her property in Crawford to the airport, where she planned to return to her native California.

“I’m going home for awhile to try and be normal,” she said.

In what she described as a “resignation letter,” Sheehan wrote in her online diary on the Daily Kos blog: “Good-bye America … you are not the country that I love and I finally realized no matter how much I sacrifice, I can’t make you be that country unless you want it.

“It’s up to you now.”

Sheehan began a grass-roots peace movement in August 2005 when she camped outside Bush’s Crawford ranch for 26 days, demanding to talk with the president about her son’s death. Army Spc. Casey Sheehan was 24 when he was killed in an ambush in Baghdad in 2004.

Sheehan’s protest started small but swelled to thousands and quickly drew national attention. Over the next two years, she drew huge crowds as she spoke at protest events. But she also drew criticism for some actions, such as meeting with Hugo Chavez, Venezuela’s leftist president.

Anger over son’s death

“I have endured a lot of smear and hatred since Casey was killed and especially since I became the so-called ‘Face’ of the American anti-war movement,” Sheehan wrote in the diary.

Kristinn Taylor, spokesman for FreeRepublic.com, which has held pro-troop rallies and counterprotests of anti-war demonstrations, said dwindling crowds at Sheehan’s Crawford protests since her initial vigil may have led to her decision. But he also said he hopes she will now be able to heal.

“Her politics have hurt a lot of people, including the troops and their families, but most of us who support the war on terror understand she is hurt very deeply,” Taylor said Tuesday. “Those she got involved with in the anti-war movement realize it was to their benefit to keep her in that stage of anger.”

When Sheehan first took on Bush, she was a darling of the liberal left. “However, when I started to hold the Democratic Party to the same standards that I held the Republican Party, support for my cause started to erode and the ‘left’ started labeling me with the same slurs that the right used,” she wrote in the diary.

She said she sacrificed a 29-year marriage and endured threats to put all her energy into stopping the war. What she found, she wrote, was a movement “that often puts personal egos above peace and human life.”

She said the most devastating conclusion she had reached “was that Casey did indeed die for nothing … killed by his own country which is beholden to and run by a war machine that even controls what we think.”

Sheehan said that she had considered leaving the peace movement since last summer while recovering from surgery.

A significant date

She decided on Memorial Day to step down and spend more time with her three other children. She said she was returning to California on Tuesday because it was Casey’s birthday. He would have been 28.

“We’ve accomplished as much here as we’re going to,” Sheehan said, saying she was leaving to change course. “When we come back, it definitely won’t be with the peace movement with marches, with rallies and with protests. It will be more humanitarian efforts.”

Last year, with $52,500 in insurance money she received after her son’s death, Sheehan bought five acres near downtown Crawford as a permanent site for protests.

“Camp Casey has served its purpose,” she wrote in the diary. “It’s for sale. Anyone want to buy five beautiful acres in Crawford, Texas?”

WeAreChange Confronts Rockefeller on New World Order Crimes


The head of the Beast in America, the top of the stinking pile of  treasonous globalist garbage, David Rockefeller

Magnificent work boys! This is exactly what I have been saying we should do instead of just protesting the government. Protest and expose those elites who are the true rulers behind the scenes, the top bosses giving orders to their minions in the government. And that is exactly what the superstar patriot activists, the WeAreChange Truth Squad is doing. This is equivalent to confronting Baron Jacob Rothschild, Queen Elizabeth or King Juan Carlos outside their homes. But in this case it was David Rockefeller, the patriarch of the most powerful family in America.

You must remember 9/11 in light of the fact that David Rockefeller called for a “catastrophic event” to get a New World Order and that Nick Rockefeller admitted he knew of what he called “the Event” at least 11 months before it happened (Google Aaron Russo+Nick Rockefeller). Then know that all the top establishment political minions (Gore, Clinton, Bush, Cheney etc) pledge their allegience to this piece of crap and serve in his shadow government, the CFR. So you best start informing everyone you come across of who the true enemies of America are.

And that address is: 146 65th St, between Lexington and 3rd in Manhattan.

Anyone in NY can go and wait for this scumbag to emerge from his little castle and let him know what you think of him.


WeAreChange Confronts Rockefeller on New World Order Crimes


Luke Rudkowski, Tom Foti and other members of WeAreChange.org confront David Rockefeller, kingpin spokesperson for the New World Order– who has stated in his autobiography that he is an ‘internationalist and proud’ and not only intends to destroy the sovereignty of the United States in favor of world government, but claims to have set in motion ‘irreversible’ actions to that end.

Rockefeller has used literally hundreds of intitutions and foundations– many of which he or his family’s dynasty have founded– to pursue world government, including the most notorious organizations, all of which he covers in the ‘Proud Internationalist’chapter of “Memoirs”– the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderberg group, the Council on Foreign Relations, amongst many, many others.

WeAreChange founder Luke Rudkowski– a freelance reporter for INFOWARS.com– used the book Memoirs to seek an autograph in excuse to approach and confront the aging traitor outside of his New York home.
