Bilderberg Planning To Put the Squeeze on U.S. Taxpayers
American Free Press May 19, 2004
The internationalist Bilderberg group has called for higher U.S. taxes in the past, but this year "American guilt" will be the theme behind the locked and guarded gates of the plush resort in Stresa, Italy, June 3-6.
Every year since 1954, Bilderbergers have met regularly at various locations around the world, always in secrecy, often at resorts controlled by either the Rockefeller or Rothschild families. See "Bilderberg Has Long, Secret History" for a detailed history of the shadowy globalist confab.
This year at Bilderberg, luminaries will discuss how to make Americans feel guilty for not throwing enough tax dollars around the world. This reflects the Bilderberg commitment to shame Americans for their high standard of living while elevating that of the rest of the world until all is equal on the global plantation.
The now defunct Spotlight reported in 1991 that talks at that year's Bilderberg focused on getting President Bush the Elder - who belonged to the brother group, the Trilateral Commission - to increase U.S. taxes. Subsequently, Bush broke his famous pledge of "read my lips, no new taxes" and agreed to a tax increase that may have cost him re-election.
But through their controlled newspapers and broadcast networks, Bilderberg wants to condition the public mind in America to accept higher taxes on so-called humanitarian grounds."
One weapon that will be used behind the locked and guarded gates of the Grand Des Iles Borromees is a new report but the Center for Global Development. Its "Commitment to Development Index" measures how good 21 rich nations are to poor, backward countries. Of the 21, the United States was ranked in foreign aid.
The Center for Global Development is staffed fy former bankers and globalists and receives much of its funding from the Rockefeller Foundation, Citigroup, the World Bank and the UN.
"Three small nations, the Netherlands, Denmark and Sweden, beat out the world's largest economic powers to hold the top spots," the center reported. "Fourth-place United Kingdom leads all Group of Seven nations, followed by Canada, which holds sixth place due in large part to its development-friendly migration policies," the center reported.
Critics of Canada's migration policies say that terrorist can get off an airplane there unchallenged and stroll across the U.S. border. U.S. officials have been concerned about Canada's border since the arrest of Ahmed Ressam who was caught by U.S. Customs trying to sneak explosives across the U.S. Border in Washington state as part of a plot to blow of Los Angeles' airport. Nevertheless, Bilderberg wants a "world without borders."
"The United States follows in seventh place," the center reported. ‘The United States contributes relatively little in foreign aid given the size of its economy and garners poor environmental scores."
The low rating given the United States on the environment is attributed to the Senate's refusal to ratify the Kyoto treaty, which economists contend would have resulted in economic hardship on many American small businesses because of the stringent rules that would be imposed. Kyoto set exemptions for developing countries, including Mexico and other Latin American countries, which would have to make no sacrifice and were eager to sign.
Although President Bill Clinton, a Bilderberg member, signed the Kyoto treaty, it was rejected overwhelmingly in a Senate test vote. President bush has not sent the treaty to the Senate for ratification.
The report is available on the center's web site, cgdev.org, and is scheduled to appear in the latest issue of Foreign Policy, which is published by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, which is always represented at the secret Bilderberg meetings.
