Bilderberg Pushes American Superstate

American Free Press | Aug 25, 2007

by James P. Tucker Jr.

Leaders of Bilderberg have gathered the appropriate flunkies at the Fairmont Le Chateau Montebello, about 50 miles outside Quebec, to accomplish a North American Union without congressional action.

Bilderberg met at the same site in 1983. The Aug. 20-21 session of the unknown Security and Prosperity Partnership (SPP) is struggling to define its goal of a borderless union of the United States, Mexico and Canada as something Americans will welcome, after it has been accomplished.

On the agenda is a report by the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), which is being translated into Spanish and French so all three governments can celebrate it together. The report explains how “hemispheric integration” will be a blessing for all and not a surrender of sovereignty. It is to be presented to the three governments in September.

The trustees of CSIS who are attending this closed meeting include Henry Kissinger, Bilderberg and Trilateral; Zbigniew Brzezinski, Trilateral; and Harold Brown, former defense secretary and Trilateral. Also participating is Richard Armitage, Bilderberg. Other Bilderberg-Trilateralists may be attending but have not been identified.

The “North American Future 2025 Project” report stresses “economic integration” and “labor mobility.” It calls for the “international migration of labor” and “international movement not only of goods and capital, but also of people.” It stresses the “free flow of people across national borders.” It calls for action to “integrate governments.” The three nations are to work on “harmonizing legislation” and regulations.

Bilderberg is fighting back from severe setbacks in its long-range goal of dividing the world into three great regions for the administrative convenience of a world government under the United Nations. The European Union was to have been fully integrated into a single state by 2000, but seven years later, there is strong resistance in France, Germany and Britain.

NAFTA was to quickly expand throughout the Western Hemisphere with an “American Union” emerging. Now, there is great resistance to NAFTA itself among voters and, consequently, congressmen.

President Bush started the country on the road to integration on April 22, 2001, when he signed the Declaration of Quebec City in which he made a “commitment to hemispheric integration.” Participants claim it can be accomplished without legislation and their final agreement would not be a “treaty” requiring Senate ratification.

But when this “agreement” is sprung on the American people, Congress will feel compelled to react to the outrage.

Portuguese press claims scent of corpse found on McCann’s keys

Daily Mail | Aug 25, 2007

The parents of Madeleine McCann faced further lurid claims from the Portuguese media with accusations that the scent of a corpse has been discovered on the key of a car they hired weeks after their daughter’s disappearance.

A daily newspaper alleged a specialist sniffer dog brought in by British police to aid the Policia Judiciaria detected traces of a body on the key to the Renault Scenic hired by Kate and Gerry McCann five weeks after Madeleine, four, was abducted from their holiday apartment in the resort of Praia da Luz.

In a story on page seven, Jornal de Noticias carried the headline: “Dogs detected scent of a corpse on the car key of Madeleine’s parents.”

The following sub-headline read: “Policia Judiciaira suspects transportation of a corpse.”

The article – which is not attributed to anyone, not even unnamed police sources – added: “English dogs helping the Policia Judiciaria in the investigation of the McCann case detected a strong scent of a corpse on the key of the McCann couple.

“The animals also detected a sample of blood in the boot of the Renault Scenic which was examined along with other cars belonging to the McCanns’ friends.”

The paper went on to claim that the person who hired the car the McCanns is also being investigated before speculating that the corpse scent on the key could have come from contimination with another item which had been in contact with a dead body.

It also reported that another British police dog scented blood in the car’s boot, which ‘precisely indicates that a corpse could have been in that boot’.

In a further sign that the Portuguese media are not letting up in their attacks on the McCanns, Diario de Noticias carried an article by a former director of the Policia Judiciaria, Francisco Moita Flores, alleging that British police have been ‘manipulating’ the Portuguese investigation and that there had been political and diplomatic interference from the UK authorities to protect the McCanns.

The latest outragous claims in Portugal come after Mr McCann was forced to respond to claims that he and his wife accidentally killed Madeleine with an overdose of sedatives.

A spokeswoman for the couple said last night: “This is just another example of the wild, unfounded speculation in the media which Kate and Gerry find very unhelpful.”

Police spokesman Olegario Sousa was unavailable to comment on the latest allegations.

Meanwhile, Mr and Mrs McCann are becoming increasingly frustrated at the way the Find Madeleine Fund is being administered.

During their 16-week stay in Portugal, the couple have been paying much of the cost of maintaining awareness of their missing daughter from their own pockets, with cash from the £1million fund being released to them on a piecemeal basis.

A friend of the family said: ‘They’re remarkably patient and know people are trying to protect their interests but it’s very different when you’re in Portugal from when you’re in the UK.

“The people operating the fund clearly think they have to protect the fund because they don’t know how long it’s going to last but Gerry thinks now is the time to be spending money because this is the time when it’s going to be most effective.”

Although the fund is mostly run by friends and family of the couple, they are keeping a tight rein on how the money is spent and have released just £70,000 from the £1,005,000 donated.

This has gone towards setting up a Find Madeleine website, producing wristbands, posters and T-shirts bearing the ‘Look for Madeleine’ motto, the cost of a campaign manager as well as legal fees.

They are finding it increasingly difficult to cover the cost of staying in Portugal while paying the mortgage and bills on their home in Rothley, Leics, while effectively being out of work. This is thought to have prompted Mr McCann to declare last week that he will soon be returning to work.

The fund, which was set up with four specific objectives – one of which is to ‘provide support, including financial assistance, to Madeleine’s family’ – has been established as a limited company rather than a registered charity because it does not have any public benefit. It is run by six directors.

Former GMTV presenter Esther McVey, who runs her own PR consultancy and is the Conservative prospective parliamentary candidate for Wirral West, is among the directors as is Mr McCann’s brother, 48-year-old pharmaceutical sales rep John McCann, and Mrs McCann’s uncle Brian Kennedy, 68, a retired headteacher.

Retired hospital consultant Peter Hubner, 64, hospital director Douglas Skehan, 54, and former Leicestershire coroner Philip Tomlinson, 76, are the other directors of the fund, set up within two weeks of Madeleine’s disappearance on May 3.

Ms McVey said: “The McCanns very much know and are aware of how the money had come together. They know it’s from pensioners and kids in schools and they want it spent as carefully as possible. Because we’re a not-for-profit limited company they are very much aware that we abide by the best practice charity laws.”

Aaron Russo, filmmaker for liberty, dies at 64


In memory of Aaron Russo 1943-2007




He was and still is simply the best of the best, the man I admired most in this world. Aaron Russo truly was a hero who deserves that title as much as anyone ever has.

Though I didn’t know him personally, it hurt to hear he had passed away. I felt the great loss to the Freedom/Truth//Patriot Movement and the Ron Paul Revolution. We will miss him, but out of his passing, we can all gain strength in his memory to soldier onward to victory in the fight for freedom, truth and justice. And I believe his eternal spirit will not rest until we have finally restored our constitutional republic.

Peace and blessings be upon you Aaron. We all love you!

‘America: Freedom to Fascism’ creator was critic of Fed, income tax, government power

WorldNetDaily | Aug 25, 2007

Longtime movie producer and 2004 Libertarian presidential candidate Aaron Russo is dead at age 64, having succumbed to cancer yesterday.

The Hollywood veteran made his name with popular films such as “Trading Places,” starring Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd, and Bette Midler’s “The Rose.” In later years, his interests and energies turned to political activism.

Russo joined the Libertarian Party after losing the Nevada GOP gubernatorial primary to Kenny Guinn in 1998. Russo picked up 26 percent of the vote in a four-way race and planned to run an independent campaign in 2002, but was forced to pull out to concentrate on overcoming bladder cancer, which, in 2003, he said he had done.

Russo came back in 2003, launching a bid for the presidency, first as an independent and later as a Libertarian.

“I want to do what Ross Perot did, what Jesse Ventura did, and I want to come out and speak the truth – be plain-spoken, tell it like it is, and bring America back to its Constitution and Bill of Rights,” Russo said in 2003.

Both parties lie to us, he asserted, and neither follows the Constitution.

“I’m frustrated by that,” said Russo, “and want to bring freedom back to America.”

The Brooklyn native was awarded a Tony, an Emmy, a Grammy and had nominations for six Academy Awards and two Golden Globe Awards. He also was the first Hollywood movie producer to garner a $1 million fee. Additionally, he helped Bette Midler rise to stardom as her manager and created a politically oriented television program, “Aaron Russo’s Mad As Hell.”

“I believe in individual freedom,” he said. “I don’t believe in a big, monolithic state.”

Whether the leadership is Democratic or Republican, Russo contended, “you have $44 trillion in unfunded liabilities, a Federal Reserve that is broken, a situation in Iraq which I think is disgusting, and you have both parties stopping people from bearing arms. Where is that in the Constitution?”

“I believe there are millions and millions of unheard voices in America who would come out and vote for someone they believed in,” he said.

Although he was a strong critic of President Bush and the war in Iraq and remained committed to libertarian policies, Russo was one of the first to endorse Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul for the 2008 election.

But Russo was a filmmaker and wasn’t dependent on election cycles to get his message of individual liberty across.

In 2006, Russo released a documentary dealing with the Federal Reserve system, income tax and government power – “America: From Freedom to Fascism.”

The film pegs 1913 as the year the United States lost its freedom. That was the year the Federal Reserve banking system was put into place and a federal income tax was instituted.

“In 1913, America was a free country,” states capital white letters on a black background at the start of the film’s online trailer. “Then a band of powerful bankers achieved their fathers’ and great grandfathers’ goal. America has never been the same. Soon the world will not be the same.”

States one review of the film posted on its website: “Aaron Russo has earned his place in the preferred section of heaven with this film, and the nation owes him a large debt of gratitude for having produced it. Eliciting cheers and tears from the audience, ‘America: From Freedom to Fascism’ is incredibly moving and effective.”

P.S. Jim Paulson, the Minnesota coordinator for AFTF (the national group working to spread Aaron’s message, online at http://www.freedomtofascism.com ) has written this inspiring message on continuing Aaron’s fight:

A True Freedom Fighter Leaves Us

8/24/07 4:20AM


I am deeply saddened to report that Aaron Russo passed away this morning after a long battle with cancer. He made a most remarkable contribution to the freedom movement. He will be dearly missed.

Let’s remember the contribution that Aaron made to the business world, the movie industry and to grassroots freedom movement in uncovering for all Americans to examine — the income tax scam, the Federal Reserve, the police state. And for his contributions to the libertarian movement in America.

It is now our task, our life mission to continue to fan the fires of liberty that he started. It is up to us to continue the legacy of educating the public to the truth about America that Aaron helped to unveil. It is up to us to put Ron Paul in the White House.

It is up to us to continue to uncover the dark secrets about America; to bring them into the light of truth. It is up to us to continue to fight for the Rights that our Creator has granted us. It is up to us to remain ever vigilant so that we will remain free.

These things, I believe, is what Aaron would tell us to continue to fight for; what he would expect of us.

God Bless Aaron Russo. May he rest in Peace.

Madeleine McCann’s Parents Accused of Giving Her a Fatal Drug Overdose


Maddie: Parents are accused of killing her

Sunday Express | Aug 26,2007

By Martin Evans

THE parents of Madeleine McCann were furious last night after a Portuguese magazine accused them of killing their daughter.

Gerry McCann exploded with rage after the front-page report declared: “Policia Judiciaria believe parents killed Maddie.”

According to the news magazine, detectives are now “almost absolutely certain” that Kate and Gerry killed Madeleine by giving her an accidental overdose of sedatives to help her sleep.

In recent weeks the McCanns have faced a growing tide of lurid speculation in the Portuguese media over the disappearance of their four-year-old daughter. But this is the first time a publication has actually come out and said they were responsible for her death.

Under the banner headline, the Tal & Qual claimed: “The T&Q knows that the PJ have strong indications that the child is dead.

“The use of drugs could have been fatal. The analyses which are late in arriving should confirm suspicions.”

Last night 39-year-old Gerry, who is a heart consultant for the NHS, could barely contain his anger as he rubbished the allegations. In an interview with British journalists, he said: “It
is just so absurd, it is just not credible.”

His voice cracking with emotion, he went on: “It’s incredibly hurtful and incredibly untrue. It comes down to: Is it papers writing that or is it actually rumours which have been said?

“Without anything else, what that implies is that we somehow did it, we did it together, managed to dispose of Madeleine without a car, without anything, the whole group was involved, there must have been other people involved.

“Even if somebody could think that, there is just absolutely no evidence pointing in that direction.”

The couple have borne weeks of hurtful rumours accusing them of a whole range of absurd allegations from wife-swapping to forging Madeleine’s birth certificate to hide her true paternity.
Yesterday the Daily Express revealed Kate’s anger after a television reporter allegedly hinted at her involvement in Madeleine’s death. And this latest sensational accusation has sparked an even more spirited response.

Tal & Qual said: “For the PJ investigators who analysed the disappearance of Madeleine McCann, the responsibility of the two parents in the death of the little girl is practically a certainty.

“The information came from sources close to the investigation who believe everything happened in an accidental manner, not adding what could have happened. However, the hypothesis that she could have died accidentally in an overdose of drugs cannot be put aside.”

Reporter Catarina Vaz Guerreiro said last night: “I can’t reveal my source but I have complete trust in them. I strongly believe the person that told us this is telling us the truth.

“It is someone close to the investigation, someone who knows what is happening in the case. It is not my personal opinion. In fact, I want to believe that it is all some mistake and the parents are innocent.

“I’m sure the parents will be angry and upset by the story because all the suspicions are now on them. I’m sure they don’t like to know they are suspects, but it is what everyone is being told by the police.”

But a police source said the story was untrue. And Chief Inspector Olegario Sousa stressed his conviction that allegations against the McCanns were unfounded. He also said it was possible the child may never be found.

He added: “Up until now, they are not suspects. If we have any suspicions we are compelled by law to charge them in order to preserve their rights.” The couple, who have remained dignified throughout the barrage of hurtful rumours, have now begun to fight back.

A defiant Gerry insisted that he and Kate would not allow anything to distract them from their search for their daughter.

Describing the latest attack he said: “It is extraordinary. It’s incredible. But we will come through it. We would like to come out and defend ourselves, that’s your gut reaction. But some of the claims “are so preposterous that you just think ‘Are you just fuelling it?’ by responding?”

After Madeleine’s disappearance on May 3 in Praia da Luz, the couple decided to remain in Portugal. However, amid increasing pressure from the Portuguese media, they admitted they were considering returning home to Rothley, Leicestershire.

Gerry said: “I think generally we have been treated very well by the media and there has been a respect. We have been able to function pretty normally until about three weeks ago when things reached fever pitch and we did feel hemmed in. It was very unpleasant.”

Gerry said he had began to think about the future and was considering returning to work. “There’s no doubt I need to be active. It doesn’t help us sitting around. We are generally not sitting around feeling sorry for ourselves, we have tried to influence things in a positive way and we are very busy. That certainly helps me function.

“It is when we stop and dwell and look back, that is the hardest thing.

“Yes, I do see myself going back to work at some point, and it will probably be in a graded fashion,” he added. “I think Kate’s job is going to be harder because as a GP she comes face-to-face with patients more.”

Meanwhile, thousands of British expats on the Costas are joining the hunt for Madeleine amid reports she is being held captive in Spain.

Two women told detectives they are “certain” they saw the missing four-year-old girl being bundled into the back of a car at a petrol station in Cartagena on the south-east coast.

The reports have prompted a massive police search across the region for a dark green Citroen ZX hatchback after the possible sighting on Tuesday.

Around 10,000 Britons live in the area and have been warned to be vigilant by the local English-speaking radio station.

Royal Navy veteran Michael Griffiths, president of the local Lions Club for expats, is helping to coordinate efforts in Spain.

Police have visited the service station at least twice. Gerry said: “The possibility that Madeleine is alive and in Spain is very real.”

Kate McCann DID scream ‘They’ve taken her’ claims new nanny witness
The first eyewitness account of the frantic moments after Madeleine McCann disappeared can be revealed today. Nanny Charlotte Pennington confirms that Kate McCann did scream: “They’ve taken her, they’ve taken her!” The mother’s precise words have become a pivotal issue in the case, with Portuguese police questioning why she would automatically assume Maddie had been abducted.

McCanns’ fury at claim they drugged and killed Maddie

FURIOUS Gerry McCann last night launched a blistering attack on reports that he and wife Kate drugged and killed their daughter. A Portuguese national paper said police are working on the theory that missing Madeleine died of an accidental overdose after being drugged by her parents. The tabloid report also claims the McCanns covered up the crime and disposed of the four-year-old’s body. The front page headline reads: “Police Believe Parents Killed Madeleine.”

Madeleine McCann overdose claim angers McCanns
THE family of missing girl Madeleine McCann was furious yesterday after a Portuguese newspaper report that police believed she was killed by her parents. The missing girl’s normally mild-mannered father, Gerry, could barely contain his anger at the smear, which accused him and his wife, Kate, of accidentally killing Madeleine with an overdose of sedatives. He also hit out at anonymous police sources behind the whispering campaign being waged against the couple.
