Reverse Engineering the Illuminati Mind Set

There is no lack of evidence pointing to the existence of a small hierarchical cabal of rabid power brokers whose influence on the workings of this planet far exceeds that of the main players in the typical competitive fields of commerce and even politics. The origins of this cabal have been traced to a small network of interlinked family bloodlines going back to – and beyond – the dominant fiefdoms of power once present in the citadels of old Europe.

The REAL Reason U.S. Targets Whistleblowers

The REAL Reason U.S. Targets Whistleblowers

“Sensitive” – “Classified” – “Top Secret” – “Intelligence” – “Government Secrets:” these have been the traditional coded language tags used to reference and rationalize the practices of deep secret-keeping by the government and the military. This article examines analyses by NYU School of Law’s Elizabeth Goitein and George Washington University’s Henry Farrell and Martha Finnemore, all of whom identify new and disturbing governmental rationalizations and motivations for maintaining ever-widening parameters of secrecy.

In Big Win for Defense Industry, U.S. Rolls Back Limits on Arms Exports

The United States is loosening controls over military exports, in a shift that former U.S. officials and human rights advocates say could increase the flow of American-made military parts to the world’s conflicts and make it harder to enforce arms sanctions. The shift is part of a larger administration initiative to update the arms export process, which many acknowledge needed to be streamlined. But critics of the move to Commerce say that decision has been overly driven by the interests of defense manufacturers.

Corporations Ask to Write their Own Regulations via “Trade” Deal

Corporations Ask to Write their Own Regulations via “Trade” Deal

(Eyes on Trade/PublicCitizen)

The New York Times has just reported that European government officials have been taking pains to entertain corporations’ deregulatory demands for the Trans-Atlantic Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA). The European Commission appears to have mistakenly released minutes of confidential government meetings held with U.S. and European corporations to see how their priorities could shape the proposed U.S.-EU deal. This may not come as a shock to those in the U.S. who know that the Obama administration has been regularly soliciting private advice on both TAFTA and the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) from about 600 corporate trade “advisors” who are granted privileged access to negotiators and secretive trade texts.

But the just-released minutes of the meetings between EU officials and U.S. and European corporate heads (among other documents unearthed by Corporate Europe Observatory and the New York Times) reveal the incredible extent to which corporations are pushing for TAFTA to rewrite health, environmental, financial and other safeguards to be more convenient to industry interests.
