The Nationalist Times
1998 - October
Where do candidates come from? Do they
emerge out of nowhere? Do they just erupt on the national scene? Or,
are they quietly chosen by covert power brokers to move the planet
closer to a
New World Order, a One World Government, a global
dictatorship with high-tech feudalism as its goal?
Take for example Jimmy Carter. He was an obscure peanut farmer, the
almost unknown governor of Georgia. Then -- as if by magic -- a
media blitz blew him onto the covers of national magazines and
established him as a front-runner in the 1976 election.
Likewise, Bill Clinton was an unknown governor of the state of
Arkansas -- a defacto
Rockefeller fiefdom, notorious for
generational corruption that surpassed even the legendary graft of
New Yorkís Tammany Hall and the Democratic machine of the Daleysí
After Clinton was invited to a 1991 meeting of the Bilderberg Group
in Baden-Baden, Germany, he became a front-running candidate for
President in 1992. Then, despite --- or maybe because of -- his
well-known sexual/drug addictions and compromised background,
Clinton was selected as the Groupís choice for U.S. President.
Since its inception in 1954, the supra-national and highly secretive
Bilderberg Group has played an active role in coordinating economic
and political policies on a global level. An international cabal of
corporate honchos and government officials, the Bilderbergers are
simply the overlords of the Global Ruling Class.
According to Peter Thompsonís essay "Bilderberg and the West" from
the book "Trilateralism" (edited by Holly Sklar, South End Press,
"Bilderberg is neither a world super-government nor is it
merely a club where incidental shoptalk takes place. Top executives
from the worldís leading multinational corporations meet with top
national political figures at Bilderberg meetings to consider
jointly the immediate and long-term policies facing the West..."
"Bilderberg is not the only means of Western collective management
of the world order, it is part of an increasingly dense system of
transnational management. . ." writes Thompson. "Where necessary, a
consensus is engineered on issues which must get
congressional/parliamentary approval, but wherever possible
executive agreements between governments are used to avoid the
democratic process altogether."
Thompson writes that,
"bodies like the U.S.
Council on Foreign
Relations (CFR), the British Royal Institute for International
Affairs, commonly known as íChatham House, and transnational
counterparts like Bilderberg and the Trilateral Commission play a
crucial role in formulating policy directions, molding establishment
consensus and even testing for likely opposition."
At a GOP fundraiser in Paradise Valley, Montana, New Jersey Governor
Christine Todd Whitman denied that she was tapped by the
Group to run for U.S. President in 2000. "I was just learning,"
asserted Whitman, one of a literal handful of women invited to
attend the secretive May 14-17, 1998 meeting in Turnberry Hotel,
At a picturesque ranch house about 40 miles north of Yellowstone
National Park --- where Dennis Quaid filmed his TNT movie
"Everything That Rises" --- Whitman was the guest of honor,
introduced by Montana Gov. Mark Racicot at a fundraiser for Montana
Rep. Rick Hill. Whitmanís speech included the cryptic comment that
"in the year 2000, the countryís going to get the kind of president
Afterwards, in remarks to the press, Whitman alluded to the
conspiratorial reputation of the Bilderberger Group, saying "itís
not a cabal."
Notwithstanding her remarks, 1998 Bilderberg Group attendees
included the usual Globalist Good Ole Boys, regulars like David
Rockefeller, Chairman of Chase Manhattan Bank; and Henry Kissinger,
former U.S. Secretary of State and current Chairman of Kissinger
Associates, Inc., a schmooze-for-hire firm that sells high-level
introductions to world-class tyrants, arms dealers and their ilk.
Women attendees at Turnberry were few. Only Her Majesty Queen of the
Netherlands; CFR member Jessica Tuchman Matthews, President of the
Carnegie Endowment for International Peace; Margaret MacMillan,
Editor of International Journal; Marie-Josee Kravis, senior fellow
at the Hudson Institute; and several European Community bureaucrats
shared this "honor" with the New Jersey Governor.
Whitman herself acknowledged the fact that the obsessive secrecy has
roiled many within the Group. She hinted that there was internal
dissent regarding the bizarre and restrictive protocols, but
defended the exclusion of the media, saying that people can speak
privately and acknowledge their mistakes without being held to task
by their constituents.
Her congenial husband, Bill Whitman, who facetiously referred to
himself as "the first lady of New Jersey in drag," added that when
he flew in from London, he stayed in a motel down the road; he
wasnít even allowed to sleep at the Turnberry Resort with his wife,
Playing a round of golf at the exclusive resort the next day, Bill
Whitman remarked in amusement that "people would be popping up from
behind the shrubbery taking pictures." The Bilderbergersí tradition
of secrecy has evidently created its own mystique and celebrity
Itís not hard to see why the Group, command-and-control globalists,
tapped Gov. Whitman. Sheís photogenic; sheís attractive; and her
politics reflect the Groupís agenda --- people control under the
guise of "environmentalism" and "free trade."
In Montana, dressed in an ivory blouse, dark slacks and cowboy
boots, Whitman, with her blonde Princess Di hairstyle, appeared
casually elegant even in a country setting. She spoke passionately
of her "goal of preserving one million acres in New Jersey thatís
undeveloped but not preserved" as a "protective" measure, a
faux-environmentalist stance that will undoubtedly win her many
Likewise her veto of a New Jersey bill that would have banned
so-called partial birth abortions earned her the animosity of the
religious right. Her answer to continuing criticism? "Iím not
pro-abortion," said Whitman. "Iím pro-choice." This kind of
sophistry is also highly respected by the political elites. [That is
not sophistry, that is a legitimate and meaningful statement. -Ed.]
Repeating the mantra that "we are in a global economy," she inferred
agreement with the Groupís agenda --- linking countries through
entangling economic treaties like GATT and NAFTA, as well as
financial strangleholds through the International Monetary Fund and
other multinational corporate loans with the usual draconian
After the scandalous record of the disgraced Clinton administration,
Gov. Whitman as a "pragmatic" pro-choice Republican woman would
appear to be the Groupís obvious choice for President.
Since its founding, the Bilderberg Group has functioned as a
private Global Politburo with 120 attendees at recent yearly
meetings. Historically, the Groupís power is awesome. Bill Clinton,
an obscure Arkansas governor, was tapped to run for president.
Likewise, Margaret Thatcher as well as Tony Blair were tapped by
the Bilderbergers to assume the reins of government in the United
Kingdom. Congressman Gerald Ford --- later U.S. president --- also
attended Group meetings in 1964 and 1966.
After Gov. Whitmanís attendance at Turnberry, itís highly probable
that she will either be a Republican vice presidential candidate
with George W. Bush in 2000 or a presidential candidate herself in
In fact, the propaganda machine has already started. Bilderberger Bill Kristol, publisher of
The Weekly Standard, has had his editor
Fred Barnes write a glowing report of Bush Jr. as "The Heavyweight."
This puff piece on behalf of the Texas governor attempts to
establish him as a primary contender for president in the next
Objections to Bilderberg range from all sides of the political
spectrum. A private, secret --- and by all accounts conspiratorial
--- consensus on matters of public importance is considered at least
in bad taste if not poor judgment by all serious advocates of
representative government. In fact, the diffidence and arrogance of
the Global Ruling Class --- the elites and their technocrats, the
New World Orderlies --- seems outrageously antiquated in the face of
continuing global problems. These interlocking supra-national elites
--- members of the Bilderberg Group, Council on Foreign Relations,
Trilateral Commission, Royal Institute of International Affairs, as
well as the foundations and think tanks of the Global Plutocrats ---
would do well to reconsider their activities.
If global techno-feudalism, as posited by George Orwellís blueprint
for world tyranny, "1984," and H. G. Wellsí "The Open Conspiracy" is
the Groupís objective, then sovereign individuals of every nation
will rise up with unprecedented fervor. An historical precedent, of
course, is the collapse of the Tower of Babel, a case of seeming
divine intervention which shattered the globalistsí plan for their
precious One World Government.
Those who pride themselves as the descendants of Nimrod had better
think twice. There will be no cushions for them when they fall the
next time around.
Gov. Whitmanís choice is after all the Hobbesí choice. She is merely
a pawn in the game, another contingency in the Groupís global ledger
of assets and liabilities. And the Group --- covert global
king-makers and king-breakers --- is known to hedge its bets. Walter
Mondale and Dianne Feinstein were Bilderbergers once too, but their
political stars rose only so high.
The significance of her choice? As the Group has chosen Gov.
Whitman, so she can still choose to opt out.
