Naming Names: Your Real Government

When dark deeds unfold, point the finger in this direction.

This is your real government; they transcend elected administrations, they permeate every political party, and they are responsible for nearly every aspect of the average American and European's way of life. When the "left" is carrying the torch for two "Neo-Con" wars, starting yet another based on the same lies, peddled by the same media outlets that told of Iraqi WMD's, the world has no choice, beyond profound cognitive dissonance, but to realize something is wrong.

What's wrong is a system completely controlled by a corporate-financier oligarchy with financial, media, and industrial empires that span the globe. If we do not change the fact that we are helplessly dependent on these corporations that regulate every aspect of our nation politically, and every aspect of our lives personally, nothing else will ever change.

The following list, however extensive, is by far not all-inclusive. However after these examples, a pattern should become self-evident with the same names and corporations being listed again and again. It should be self-evident to readers of how dangerously pervasive these corporations have become in our daily lives. Finally, it should be self-evident as to how necessary it is to excise these corporations from our lives, our communities, and ultimately our nations, with the utmost expediency.

International Crisis Group

Background: While the International Crisis Group (ICG) claims to be "committed to preventing and resolving deadly conflict," the reality is that they are committed to offering solutions crafted well in advance to problems they themselves have created in order to perpetuate their own corporate agenda.

Nowhere can this be better illustrated than in Thailand and more recently in Egypt. ICG member Kenneth Adelman had been backing Thailand's Prime Minster Thaksin Shinwatra, a former Carlyle Group adviser who was was literally standing in front of the CFR in NYC on the eve of his ousting from power in a 2006 military coup. Since 2006, Thaksin's meddling in Thailand has been propped up by fellow Carlyle man James Baker and his Baker Botts law firm, Belfer Center adviser Robert Blackwill of Barbour Griffith & Rogers, and now Robert Amsterdam's Amsterdam & Peroff, a major corporate member of the globalist Chatham House.

With Thailand now mired in political turmoil led by Thaksin Shinwatra and his "red shirt" color revolution, the ICG is ready with "solutions" in hand. These solutions generally involve tying the Thai government's hands with arguments that stopping Thaksin's subversive activities amounts to human rights abuses, in hopes of allowing the globalist-backed revolution to swell beyond control.

The unrest in Egypt, of course, was led entirely by ICG member Mohamed ElBaradei and his US State Department recruited, funded, and supported April 6 Youth Movement coordinated by Google's Wael Ghonim. While the unrest was portrayed as being spontaneous, fueled by the earlier Tunisian uprising, ICG's ElBaradei, Ghonim, and their youth movement had been in Egypt since 2010 assembling their "National Front for Change" and laying the groundwork for the January 25th 2011 uprising.

ICG's George Soros would then go on to fund Egyptian NGOs working to rewrite the Egyptian constitution after front-man ElBaradei succeeded in removing Hosni Mubarak. This Soros-funded constitution and the resulting servile stooge government it would create represents the ICG "resolving" the crisis their own ElBaradei helped create.

Brookings Institute

Background: Within the library of the Brookings Institute you will find the blueprints for nearly every conflict the West has been involved with in recent memory. What's more is that while the public seems to think these crises spring up like wildfires, those following the Brookings' corporate funded studies and publications see these crises coming years in advance. These are premeditated, meticulously planned conflicts that are triggered to usher in premeditated, meticulously planned solutions to advance Brookings' corporate supporters, who are numerous.

The ongoing operations against Iran, including US-backed color revolutions, US-trained and backed terrorists inside Iran, and crippling sanctions were all spelled out in excruciating detail in the Brookings Institute report, "Which Path to Persia?" The more recent UN Security Council resolution 1973 regarding Libya uncannily resembles Kenneth Pollack's March 9, 2011 Brookings report titled "The Real Military Options in Libya."

Council on Foreign Relations

Background & Notable Membership: A better question would be, who isn't in the Council on Foreign Relations? Nearly every self-serving career politician, their advisers, and those populating the boards of the Fortune 500 are CFR members. Many of the books, magazine articles, and newspaper columns we read are written by CFR members, along with reports, similar to Brookings Institute that dictate, verbatim, the legislation that ends up before the West's lawmakers.

A good sampling of the most active wings of the CFR can be illustrated best in last year's "Ground Zero Mosque" hoax, where CFR members from both America's political right and left feigned a heated debate over New York City's so-called Cordoba House near the 3 felled World Trade Center buildings. In reality, the Cordoba House was established by fellow CFR member Feisal Abdul Rauf, who in turn was funded by CFR financing arms including the Carnegie Corporation of New York, chaired by 9/11 Commission head Thomas Kean, and various Rockefeller foundations.

The Chatham House

Background & Membership: The UK's Chatham House, like the CFR and the Brookings Institute in America, has an extensive membership and is involved in coordinated planning, perception management, and the execution of its corporate membership's collective agenda.

Individual members populating its "senior panel of advisers" consist of the founders, CEOs, and chairmen of the Chatham House's corporate membership. Chatham's "experts" are generally plucked from the world of academia and their "recent publications" are generally used internally as well as published throughout Chatham's extensive list of member media corporations, as well as industry journals and medical journals. That Chatham House "experts" are submitting entries to medical journals is particularly alarming considering GlaxoSmithKline and Merck are both Chatham House corporate members.

No better example of this incredible conflict of interest can be given than the current Thai "red" color revolution being led by Chatham House's Amsterdam & Peroff with consistent support lent by other corporate members including the Economist, the Telegraph and the BBC.

In one case, the Telegraph printed, "Thai protests - analysis by Dr Gareth Price and Rosheen Kabraji," within which Price and Kabraji make a shameless attempt at defending the Western-backed, Maoist themed, violent protests. While the Telegraph mentioned that Price and Kabraji were both analysts for the Chatham House, they failed to tell readers that the Telegraph itself retains a corporate membership within the Chatham House as does the Thai protest leader's lobbyist, Robert Amsterdam and his Amsterdam & Peroff lobbying firm.

These organizations represent the collective interests of the largest corporations on earth. They not only retain armies of policy wonks and researchers to articulate their agenda and form a consensus internally, but also use their massive accumulation of unwarranted influence in media, industry, and finance to manufacture a self-serving consensus internationally.

To believe that this corporate-financier oligarchy would subject their agenda and fate to the whims of the voting masses is naive at best. They have painstakingly ensured that no matter who gets into office, in whatever country, the guns, the oil, the wealth and the power keep flowing perpetually into their own hands. Nothing vindicates this poorly hidden reality better than a "liberal" Nobel Peace Prize wearing president, dutifully towing forward a myriad of "Neo-Con" wars, while starting yet another war in Libya.

Likewise, no matter how bloody your revolution is, if the above equation remains unchanged, and the corporate bottom lines left unscathed, nothing but the most superficial changes will have been made, and as is the case in Egypt with International Crisis Group stooge Mohamed ElBaradei worming his way into power, things may become substantially worse.

The real revolution will commence when we identify the above equation as the true brokers of power and when we begin systematically removing our dependence on them, and their influence on us from our daily lives. The global corporate-financier oligarchy needs us, we do not need them, independence from them is the key to our freedom.

You ended a paragraph this way, "It’s going to be more like a chicken on a griddle." I would have said something like 'spinning overhead (in the grasp of,,,) it sinners circles'

[in ref to their sin erasing procedure]

What you people need to keep in mind is this fraud known as israel. the jew should be side by side with their Rabbi Y.Weiss as he tells them "we are still in our exile" because none of their religious books prophecies regarding their mythical "return" has ever come true. Their 'Hollow Cause' is invalid as one of those prophecies by both the methods of death as well as the numbers of dead. (as one previously described-red cross figures etc) So they pretend one of their many 'pre return prophecies' has come true, yet the rest remain to be pretended as true. This was the goal of the zionNazis, to pretend to the other jews that prophecies have been fulfilled. It seems as if a lightbulb went off after their last expulsion (pre civil war in america times) and that their religious books were after all, fablistic kabalistic crapola.

I can see their meeting and saying, "we've done this and that to them and their children, and all they do is make us move away from them. We wanted to be holocausted so our israel may be. Why are they not killing us for our crimes?".

Two companies should be examined carefully:

Science Applications International Corp (SAIC)

Applied Research Associates Inc (ARA)

Another hugely significant company that's overlooked is Proctor and Gamble, where George Bush Sr. first tried to hire in upon graduation from Yale (gotta ask yourself "why?"). Aside from the eugenic connections of Clarence Gamble, past heir to the P&G fortune, P&G is also the company that brought us the food additive that most disrupts good fat (EFA) metabolism. That additive is hydrogenated oil, often referred to as partially hydrogenated oil. It's in virtually all processed foods today. The result? Just watch some old 1960s era TV programs that show average everyday people standing around and contrast them with the average everyday people you find out and about today... To learn more about EFA's and good fats in general, read Udo Erasmus' "Fats That Heal, Fats That Kill", or better still his earlier book, "Fats and Oils". Unfortunately the story darkens considerably at this point as various entities around the globe are making further inroads into destroying what little good fat you cam get into your diet. For one, Codex threatens to take away the very vitamins that your body needs to help it metabolize fats...

rEVOLutions of the mind must precede that of the body. Some of the key faces of crony capitalism have been exposed. Have at them!

Don't waste your time protesting in front of government buildings. Find the location of these people and their offices and camp outside there. These are the true criminals that must be torn down. The politicians are nothing more then lap dogs, rather dim witted at that.

This list actually goes deeper than this. You missed quite a few masterminds. But, this really seems impossible to do. I myself have no idea how to take care of these criminals. A revolt? Ha... yeah right! That will be like trying to herd cats!

This plane, this earth is hell. After realizing all of this I am positive there has to be a better place somwhere else. I hate Americans, they are so damn stupid the way they would rather sit on the couch and watch american idol while stuffing their face with mcdonalds cheeseburgers, wearing clothes that are made in china or pakistan. Look around yoru house, over half the items you have in it are probably made in china. You think you have control in this nation by being able to vote? LOLOLOL Yeah, right. Freedom in America is a farce. I hate this country. I hope someone with the power to burns this nation to the ground and takes all these corrupt assholes with them. Maybe aliens will help us. Maybe mother nature. Maybe that meteorite that slams into us will end all of these power hungry elitests plans. One can only hope.
