Change? Obama Inner Circle Filled With Bilderbergers
[Note: The first one post I sent out a few minutes ago has the correct story for Dutch minister of Foreign Affairs: ‘We need an international order’]
By Victor Thorn

For two years, Americans have heard an unrelenting mantra of change emanating from the campaign trail. But now that President-elect Barack Obama has begun forming his cabinet, we’re seeing a cadre of more deeply entrenched insiders than any administration that has preceded it.

In regard to key foreign policy advisors, all three of Obama’s selections either initially supported the Iraq war, or still do. On the economic front, each appointee maintains a close relationship with the Jewish triad of Ben Bernanke, Robert Rubin and Alan Greenspan—as well as bailout engineer Henry Paulson. Barack Obama himself is a Council on Foreign Relations member, has strong ties to Zbigniew Brzezinski, and participated in a clandestine meeting with Hillary Clinton at Bilderberg member Diane Feinstein’s house at the time when 2008 Bilderberg members were congregating only a few miles away.

Below is an overview of Obama’s top 14 selections to date. When considering their collective histories, a trend becomes clear, proving that the more things change under Obama, the more they stay the same.

Dutch minister of Foreign Affairs: ‘We need an international order’
Jurriaan Maessen, December 17, 2008

Dutch minister of Foreign Affairs and 2008 Bilderberg attendee, Maxime Verhagen

On the first of September 2008, the Dutch minister of Foreign Affairs and 2008 Bilderberg attendee, Maxime Verhagen, gave a speech at the opening of the academic year of the prestigious University of Leiden, the Netherlands. He spoke via satellite connection before an assembly of impressionable minds who no doubt were curious what the minister had to say to send them on their academic way. After the usual formalities (praising the institution and its ancient traditions) he began marvelling at the changes that the university had undergone since the old days when he himself attended the university, cunningly personalising the subject and subsequently setting the tone for the rest of his speech:


Students today have greater opportunities than in my day. It is perfectly possible that you will spend some part of your working life abroad. There is a good chance you will end up getting a job with a foreign or international corporation, even if you stay in the Netherlands. You’ve grown up in a world without borders, and your future prospects reflect that.’


Premising that the students have grown up in a new world, he casually steps over the issue of national sovereignty (as if it was some obnoxious obstacle), at the same time celebrating a ‘world without borders’:

Globalisation’, he remarks, ‘has brought the world closer to home.’

That’s nice.
Establishing globalisation as a springboard from which to plunge into the rest of his elucidation, he continues (unhindered by any regard for historic accuracy) by saying that the Dutch in history have always aspired to a world without national borders.

‘(…) Globalisation is nothing new to the Netherlands. What is new, however, is the speed, inevitability and totality of the process as we now know it.

Yes, we should all get up to speed and that right soon. Here he intentionally confuses the human urge (and Dutch tendency) to explore and discover, with an ideology to merge all nations into a global super state. It is an old trick and selling point to argue that an idea, or an intended policy, is a natural consequence of an age-old tradition while in point of fact it’s not.

He goes on to promote an increased move towards world government not with the help of any argument with which to convince his listening audience, but to point out rather that the process is completely irrevocable, no longer in our hands. We might as well accept it:

There is no point in pretending that we can turn back time. The intensity of globalisation is a fact of life over which we have little control.’

If this doesn’t silence the critics, he constructs a classic straw man to finish the job. It is the famous ‘Yes yes, globalisation is beautiful, but does it also work?’- straw man. Completely dismissing any rejection on principle, Verhagen instead proposes that it is only possible to have practical objections to world government. Then he deconstructs the straw man by summing up all the presumed benefits we’ve heard so often, including the thoroughly debunked global warming-myth, the need for globally operating supervising entities (who will do the supervising? ) and the pledge that the developing countries will magically turn into gardens of Eden once they conform to the new world order. Verhagen:

‘To make the world a safer and more equitable place, we need an international order. (…) That multilateral system, based on legal principles that apply to all people and all nations, is designed to impose order and prevent or resolve conflict and chaos.(…). Accordingly, our policy aims to bind as many countries as possible to the international structure.’

Who Maxime Verhagen refers to when he speaks of ‘we’ and ‘our’ is unclear. Could it be he is speaking of the powerbrokers and moguls who attend the Bilderberg-conferen ce, as Verhagen himself did just a couple of months before?
Regardless, after panegyrising globalisation as the most desirable form of governance, he couldn’t help himself from adding a last, biting comment, sounding remarkably similar to a threat:

When states renounce the system and try to withdraw from agreements they have made, the world becomes less safe and more unstable.’

In conclusion the minister addressed his young audience directly, proclaiming that:

The academic world has an important role to play here. Students need the tools that will enable them to cope in an international setting. They will have to find these tools for themselves, though it’s the university’s job to give them something else: the right drive, the right mentality, the right international orientation!

It’s remarkable. Verhagen does not advocate just an international orientation. He pleads for the right international orientation.
The future intelligentsia is being systematically prepared for the new world order. Although Bilderberg luminaries were often heard soft-speaking for a new world order in the past, now they’re practically falling over each other, crying for it.
