- The following report on "The Power of the British
Commonwealth Over the World" began when I was at the WTO meeting in
Cancun in September 2003. There, several African countries held a press
briefing in which they said that they would starve if America and other
rich countries did not open their cotton and agricultural markets to them.
I asked several questions about their vast natural resources (gold and
strategic minerals) and if they had any monies left over after their World
Bank loans were paid. They refused to answer. Afterward I spoke to each
one and asked the following questions and received the same response. Since
they were Commonwealth members, I asked if they could go to Britain for
help. They could not. So I then asked why they don't withdraw from the
Commonwealth if there is no help. With great alarm, they told me they could
not withdraw from this voluntary association. When I returned home, I called
the British Information Office to see if they could tell me if the countries
which Britain de-colonized in the 1950s, 60s, and 70s received a vote at
the UN at the time of separation. The lady told me she would have to research
my very good question. She called the next day to tell me that every time
a country was granted independence from Britain, they were given a vote
at the UN. Bingo!
- I have always questioned how Britain would regain control
of America when they were defeated by Andrew Jackson at the Battle of New
Orleans in 1812. Are we so naive to think that they would not try some
other way to "capture the world"? In the past ten years, as I
have covered the UN, I have been amazed at the number of suggestions and
key reports that come from the British which influence UN policy. So, just
how much power does Britain have in the world today?
- The first book that I wrote is 'Prince Charles the Sustainable
Prince' which has to do with the role of the British Royal Family as the
power behind the United Nations. This book asserts that the British ARE
the power behind the United Nations. This opinion has not changed since
I wrote Prince Charles. The prince is a key, behind-the-scenes mover and
shaker and is responsible for the radical environmental agenda that perverts
Genesis 1, 2, and 3 and puts the earth above man and not man above the
earth as God intended. When I wrote Prince Charles, I was not aware of
the information you are now going to read.
- A Brief History of Britain
- The following is taken from the Internet site, "britania,"
and is from 'England, A Narrative History' by Peter N. Williams. What I
have tried to do is to show the aggressiveness of this little island nation
and its role in the world today. Some of the sub-titles are my interpretation
of the material reprinted.
- Early History
- The Celtic culture in Early Britain developed about 1000
BC and came from Gaul, driven from their homelands by the Romans who invaded
in 55BC under Julius Caesar. In 43 AD an expedition was ordered against
Britain by Emperor Claudius who sent an army of 40,000 men. The Romans
established their bases in what is known as Kent and subdued much of Britain
in less than 40 years. They remained for nearly 400 years. After the Romans
left, England entered a dark period. By 314 an organized Christian Church
seems to have been established in most of Britain. By 410 Britain had become
self-governing in three parts. In 597 St. Augustine was sent to convert
the pagan English by Pope Gregory. Ethelbert had married Bertha, daughter
of the Merovingian King and was practicing Christianity. The first Anglo-Saxon
kingdom in Britain was an Anglo-Celtic kingdom. In 726, Aethelbold called
himself "King of Britain" while his son Offa called himself "king
of all the English." For several hundred years, various kings in various
part of Britain tried to gain control. In 896, Alfred occupied London.
He was born in 849 and became King of Wessex in 871. Due to his battles
with the Danes, he succeeded in becoming the first king of England. Throughout
the 8th century, the Danes, Norwegians, Scandinavians, and British fought
as to who would have power and control. The Normans invaded England in
order to secure the throne for William of Normandy who was crowned King
of England at Westminster on Christmas Day, 1066. With him, came feudalism
and a new aristocracy. By 1086, other than small-estate holders, there
were in the whole of the land only two Englishmen holding estates of any
dimension. William insisted that landowners who had land from the king
produce a set quota of mounted knights which produced a new ruling class
in England. In this system, those at the bottom suffered most, losing all
their rights as free men and coming to be regarded as mere property, assets
belonging to the manor.
- Feudalistic Sustainable Development
- Further restrictions and hardship came from William's
New Forest laws and his vast extension of new royal forests in which all
hunting rights belonged to the king. The peasantry was deprived of a valuable
food source in times of bad harvests. In 1080, the "Domesday Book"
was begun and was an attempt to provide the king with every penny to which
he was legally entitled. It worked only too well, reckoning the wealth
of England, "Down to the last pig." William sent his men into
every village and had them find out how many hides there were, what land
and cattle the king should have in the country, and what dues he ought
to have in twelve months from the town or village [JV: Does this sound
like sustainable development and the UN Biological Diversity Treaty?].
- >From the rule of the Plantagenet's to Richard the
Lionhearted and the Crusades to King John who was forced to sign the "Great
Magna Carta" in Runnymede on June 15, 1215, to Edward I, Longshanks
to Henry VIII and to Queen Elizabeth I, the British kings and queens were
concerned with holding on to the power of the monarchy.
- As a result of the defeat of the Spanish Armada by Elizabeth
I and her long reign, England saw remarkable economic growth and a time
of calm from her chaotic past. Industry and trade prospered under the guidance
of men like Secretary Cecil, later Lord Burghley. [JV: It should be noted
that Lord Burghley perfected torture techniques and the secret police.]
During her reign, many of the Dutch bankers and capitalists from Antwerp
flocked to London to find a new and more secure international money and
credit market. That year Thomas Gresham opened the Royal Exchange in London
to make it the financial capital of the world. Cecil encouraged the fishing
industry, the source of England's navy and backbone of its sea power. English
sailors began their mastery of the world's oceans. Though little more than
pirates, these seamen laid the foundations of their nation's naval superiority
which was to last for centuries. John Cabot discovered Newfoundland in
1497, Martin Frobisher established trade with Moscow in 1555 to trade with
Russia. Sir Francis Drake searched the world for treasures.
- Key British Economic and Trade Concepts In 1694, the
Bank of England was formed by a private stock company which raised their
own funds and issued their own money to be lent to the government "in
perpetuity." This started the concept of "central banking."
Then a group of merchants and sea captains at Lloyd's Coffee House in 1688
formed marine insurance which would underwrite enormous expenditures in
overseas ventures and shipping. On May 26, 1698, Parliament came up with
the idea of granting monopolies in trade by an act of Parliament. This
act created the East India Company. This company, with the newly formed
Bank of England showed only too well the growing power of the British traders
and financiers over the state government (emphasis added). [JV: This is
very key for they still rule the world today.]
- As a result of the East India Trading Company, the trading
classes were able to control parliament. It became one of the ever-increasing
problems for the country's government: the interference of trade with legislation
and administration was to become an inevitable part of the future.
- In 1496, John and Sebastian Cabot discovered Newfoundland
and Nova Scotia. England's own era of exploration, initiated by the Cabots,
was expanded by the journeys of Hugh Willoughby to seek a Northeast Passage
to China and the spice trade. He reached Moscow by way of the White Sea
and Archangel in 1553. As a result, the Muscovy Company was founded by
Richard Chancellor to trade with Russia in 1555. Then John Hawkins, who
began his career high-jacking Portuguese and Spanish ships in 1562, led
to England's entering the Slave Trade. David Ingram explored from the Gulf
of Mexico to Canada and reported finding vines with grapes as large as
a man's thumb. English mariner Francis Drake undertook his daring voyage
of 1572 to capture the Spanish treasure fleet returning from Peru, a feat
surpassed by his even greater haul one year later.
- In 1580, Drake arrived back in Plymouth having circumnavigated
the globe in the Pelican, renamed the Golden Hind after the gallant ship
had passed through the Straits of Magellan. Drake was knighted by the Queen
after capturing the richest prize ever taken at sea. In 1584, Sir Walter
Raleigh established a colony in Roanoke, Virginia. One year later, Chesapeake
Bay was discovered by Ralph Lane and Davis Strait by John Davis.
- In 1585, the first oriental spice to be grown in the
New World, Jamaican ginger, arrived in Europe. In 1586, Sir Richard Cavendish
became the third man to circumnavigate the globe when the ship the Desire
reached England after a voyage of over two years. When the Portuguese closed
its spice market in Lisbon to Dutch and English traders, the Dutch East
India Company was created to obtain spices directly from the Orient. In
1600, the Honorable East India Company was chartered to make annual voyages
to the Indies and to challenge Dutch control of the spice trade.
- After James I made peace with Spain in 1604, he re-directed
England's efforts at colonizing North America and the Plymouth and London
companies sent ships and colonists. Jamestown, Virginia was founded in
1607. That same year, Henry Hudson sought a route to China and sailed around
the Eastern Short of Greenland. In 1610, Hudson's ship Discovery reached
the strait later to be known as Hudson Bay, Canada. In 1620, the Mayflower
arrived off Cape Cod with 100 Pilgrims. In 1628, John Endicott arrived
as the first Governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. In 1632, Maryland
received its charger by a grant from King Charles to Cecil Calvert. In
1655, Admiral Penn captured Jamaica from the Spanish. In 1654, New Amsterdam
was renamed New York after its capture from the Dutch. A year later, the
New Jersey Colony was founded by English colonists. The 1674 Treaty of
Westminster returned New York and Delaware to England. In 1681, Pennsylvania
had its beginning in the land grant given to William Penn. In 1698, William
Dampier sailed on his Pacific expedition to explore the West Coast of Australia.
- In 1648, South Africa came to attention of Europeans
when a Dutch ship broke up and the survivors urged authorities to establish
a settlement for provisioning their East India fleets. In 1652, a small
group of Dutch settlers founded Cape Town. In 1815, Britain gained its
long-desired "half-way house" on the sea route to India when
the Dutch ceded the Cape of Good Hope. The British arrived in 1820. When
diamonds were discovered in the Orange Free State, the Boer War began.
Then gold was discovered in the Transvaal in 1886. Cecil Rhodes who founded
the De Beers Mining Corporation in 1880 was determined that the riches
being discovered in South Africa were not going to the Boer farmers. Rhodes
dreamed of extending British rule in Africa. Using his great wealth, amassed
in the diamond and gold fields, Rhodes with other imperialists established
British colonies to the north of the Boer territories. Both Northern and
Southern Rhodesia were granted charters by London. Eventually the Boer
republics were annexed to the British crown in 1900.
- The South Sea company founded in 1711 had acquired a
monopoly in the lucrative Spanish slave trade and other trading ventures
in South America.
- At the Treaty of Paris in 1763, Britain gained Canada,
Nova Scotia, Cape Breton, the right to navigate the Mississippi, the West
Indian Islands of Grenada, St. Vincent, Dominica and Tobago in the West
Indies; Florida (from Spain); Senegal in Africa and the preservation in
India of the East India Company's monopoly, and in Europe, Minorca.
- In India, Robert Clive defeated pro-French forces at
Arcot in 1751 thus helping his East India Company monopolize appoints,
finances, land and power. The British victory led to the withdrawal of
the French East India Company. Then Clive defeated the local Nabob at Plassey
to become virtual ruler of Bengal and opened up much of the country to
further exploitation and control by the East India Company. India was regarded
as the "jewel in the crown" of the British Empire; over two thirds
of the vast sub-continent was ruled by the East India Company. Its finances
and its troops were used to protect British interests, even overthrowing
native Indian princes.
- In 1769, Captain Cook discovered a country that consisted
of two main islands, it was called New Zealand. In 1770, he explored the
eastern coast of what was then called "New Holland." He took
possession of the island continent in the name of George III. Britain had
found a new empire, Australia to resettle criminals and to accommodate
early settlers to help with the overpopulation in Britain which the agricultural
and industrial revolutions had contributed to. In 1822, an article by James
Mill on "colonization" in the "Encyclopedia Britannica"
offered emigration as a remedy for over-population.
- Between 1768 and 1781, Captain Cook made three exploratory
voyages to the West Coast of Canada. Because the Chinese were interested
in receiving fur in exchange for the tea, silks and porcelain which was
in demand in Europe, the British went further west. In 1788, a group of
English traders settled on Vancouver Island. Spain still claimed the whole
West Coast of America up to Alaska but after a confrontation at Vancouver
between the two countries, England presented an ultimatum to the Spanish
whose lack of allies and an effective navy forced them to accept its terms.
The Spanish recognition of British trading and fishing rights in the area
opened the way for the establishment of British Columbia and the creation
of a British North America. In 1867, the British North America Act united
Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia in the Dominion of Canada.
- When Admiral Nelson defeated a combined French and Spanish
fleet near Gibraltar in 1805, the long struggle between Britain and France
for world supremacy ended. English soldiers were involved in a war with
China over British export of opium from India in exchange for silks and
tea. When China forbade the opium trade and fired on a British warship,
they were bombarded by a Royal Navy squadron. The Opium War ended with
the Treaty of Nanking in 1842 that opened up five "Treaty Ports"
for trade and gave Hong Kong to Britain.
- Britain's rise to a world power meant that she found
interest everywhere. Not only was she now head of the self-governing colonies
such as Australia, Canada, New Zealand, but also the vast Empire of India
and a veritable host of dependent territories all over the world's oceans.
Most of these had been acquired somehow to protect the merchants and traders
of England. On the following page, you will find a chart of British interference
and domination in the affairs of the world.
- Observations of Commonwealth Countries While I could
make numerous observations about the various countries that comprise the
Commonwealth countries, I would like to offer the following:
- 1. There is an interesting mix between extremely wealthy
countries such as Australia, Canada, Brunei, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar and UAE
versus the Highly Indebted Poor Countries-HIPC such as Bangladesh, Mozambique,
Uganda and the Sudan.
- Many of the HIPC have vast mineral resources which are
used to pay for World Bank loans instead of building infrastructure. Please
refer to Prince Charles the Sustainable Prince. For example:
- Ghana - Rich in gold, bauxite, manganese, diamonds
- Guyana - Rich in bauxite, manganese, gold, diamonds Mauritania
- Iron and copper ore Senegal - Petroleum refining Sierra Leone - Diamonds,
chrome, bauxite and iron ore Uganda - Copper and cobalt Tanzania - Rich
in gold, diamonds and coal Zambia - Rich in copper.
- 2. By the number of countries that the British invaded,
ruled and plundered, you can see that "the sun never sets on the British
- 3. Israel was a British Mandate and then was made a country
by vote at the United Nations.
- 4. The financial and economic power of some of the Commonwealth
Countries and those invaded by the British is as follows:
- Australia - rich in coal, gold, meat, wool, machinery,
iron ore, bauxite, natural gas, uranium and petroleum. Brunei - Rich in
oil and gas with 79 million barrels of oil exported in 2001. It also has
forests, fish, rubber and pepper. Kuwait - Has 10% of the world's oil reserves
at 98 billion barrels. India - Has textiles, chemicals, steel, transportation
equipment, cement and petroleum. Nigeria - The most populous country with
proven oil reserves of 27 billion barrels and natural gas reserves of 4
trillion cubic feet along with coal, peanuts and palm oil. Malaysia - Rubber,
palm oil and electronics. Oman -Has oil and natural gas with some copper,
gold, manganese, and goal. Qatar - Has 5% of the world's oil reserves of
14.6B barrels and proven natural gas of 17.9% trillion cubic feet. Singapore
- Electronics, chemicals, transportation equipment, one of the world's
largest petroleum refining centers and an important ship-building center.
South Africa - The world's largest producer of platinum, gold and chromium.
UAE - Has 10% of the world's oil reserves estimated at 98.1 billion barrels
and natural gas at 5.8 trillion cubic feet as well as largest producer
of dates and fresh fruits, has a national shipping fleet of more than 4,000
vessels, produces aluminum, chemicals, paper and pharmaceuticals. Zimbabwe
- Coal, gold, copper, nickel, tin, clay, steel, wood, cement and chemicals.
- While we are at it, let us make mention that most of
the off-shore trading and banking is conducted in the Cayman Islands which
is part of the UK. They have 40,000 companies as of 1998 with 600 banks
and trusts. AT that time, banking exceeded $500B.
- Definition of Commonwealth
- The English word, "Commonwealth", dates from
the 15th century and indicates one of the following: a nation, state or
political unit, a state founded on law by agreement of the people for the
common good, a republic, and/or a federated union of constituent states.
The Commonwealth of England was the official title of the political unit
that replaced the kingdoms of Scotland and England under the rule of Oliver
- The states of Kentucky, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and
Virginia are all "commonwealths" which emphasizes they have "government
based on the common consent of the people" (Source: Wikipedia.Org.)
- The Commonwealth
- According to an Internet encyclopedia, Wikipedia.org,
"The Commonwealth of Nations is a voluntary association of independent
sovereign states, mostly formed by the United Kingdom and its former colonies."
Countries that "acknowledge the British monarch as head of state are
known as Commonwealth Realms" while all members recognize Queen Elizabeth
II as Head of the Commonwealth.
- The Commonwealth is the successor of the British Empire
and has its origins in the Imperial Conferences of the 1920s. The Commonwealth
was established as an association of free and equal states, and membership
was based on common allegiance to the British Crown.
- The old British Empire, we are told, was dismantled after
World War II beginning with India and the activities of Mohandas Gandhi.
A number of the countries that have been de-colonized are republics. Because
several left the Commonwealth, they established the London Declaration
which provided for members to accept the British monarch as Head of the
Commonwealth regardless of their domestic constitutional arrangements,
and are now considered by many to be the start of the modern Commonwealth.
- The population of the Commonwealth is about 1.8 billion
people which comprise about 30% of the world's population. India is the
most populous member with a billion people while Pakistan, Bangladesh,
and Nigeria have more than 100 million people. The land of Commonwealth
nations equals about 1/4 of the world's land area. Membership is open to
countries that accept the association's basic aims.
- In recent years, the Commonwealth has suspended Fiji
(2000-2001), Pakistan from 1999-2004, Nigeria from 1995 - 1999, Zimbabwe
was suspended in 2002 and left the Commonwealth in 2003.
- Organization and Objectives
- Queen Elizabeth II is the nominal Head of the Commonwealth.
Since 1965 there has been a London-based Secretariat. The current Commonwealth
Secretary-General is the former New Zealand Foreign Minister Don McKinnon.
- The objectives of the Commonwealth were set down in The
Harare Declaration of 1991. While it is not a long declaration, part of
it is reprinted only to show that there really is no real reason for the
UK to have the Commonwealth except to control the UN through the Commonwealth.
Its goals are exactly those of the UN. The Declaration states in part,
- The Heads of Government of the countries of the Commonwealth
reaffirm their confidence In the Commonwealth as a voluntary association
of sovereign independent states, each Responsible for its own policies,
consulting and co-operating in the interests of their peoples and in the
promotion of international understanding and world peace.
- The Commonwealth way is to seek consensus through consultation
and the sharing of experience. It is uniquely placed to serve as a model
and as a catalyst for new forms of friendship and co-operation to all in
the spirit of the Charter of the United Nations.
- We believe that international peace and order, global
economic development and the rule of International law are essential to
the security and prosperity of mankind.
- Internationally, the world is no longer locked in the
iron grip of the Cold War. Totalitarianism Is giving way to democracy and
justice in many parts of the world.
- Many Commonwealth countries are poor and face acute problems,
including excessive population growth, crushing poverty, debt burdens and
- Only sound and sustainable development can offer these
millions the prospect of betterment. Achieving this will require a flow
of public and private resources from the developed to the developing world,
and domestic and international regimes conducive to the realization of
these goals: environmental degradation, migration and refugees, communicable
diseases and drug production and trafficking.
- Having reaffirmed the principles to which the Commonwealth
is committed, we pledge the Commonwealth and our countries to work with
renewed vigor, concentrating especially In the following areas: the protection
and promotion of the fundamental political values of the Commonwealth.
- How Voluntary is the Commonwealth?
- You would think that if a country was de-colonized that
Britain would have a "hands-off" policy. That is not the case.
Every Commonwealth country that acknowledges the queen as head of state
has a representative of the queen who is called a "Governor-General."
The Governor-General retains all the reserve powers that the Queen exercises
in the UK which includes opening and closing parliament and abolishing
parliament. Furthermore, the Governor-General appoints the prime minister
and cabinet from the part with the most support from the House of Commons.
In Canada, for example, the ten provinces all have a representative of
the Queen! When Parliament is opened, both the prime minister and the Governor-General
give a speech. The Governor-General delivers "The Speech from the
- Commonwealth Votes at the UN
- When the UN was formed in 1945, Canada, New Zealand and
the United Kingdom had three votes. As the UK de-colonized countries, they
were made voting members of the United Nations. Then between 1946-1959
when the United Kingdom de-colonized a number of countries, their votes
increased by four: Ghana, Malaysia, Pakistan and Sir Lanka. During 1960-1969,
twenty more countries were de-colonized: Barbados, Botswana, Cameroon,
Cyprus, Gambia, Guyana, Jamaica, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Maldives, Malta,
Mauritius, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Singapore, Swaziland, Trinidad and Tobago,
Uganda and Zambia. During 1970-79, ten more countries de-colonized: Bahamas,
Bangladesh, Dominica, Fiji, Grenada, Mozambique, Papau New Guinea, Samoa,
and Solomon Islands. During 1980-89, seven more countries de-colonized:
Antigua and Barbuda, Belize, Brunei Darussalam, Saint Kitts and Nevis,
Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Vanuatu, and Zimbabwe. The last country
to de-colonize was Namibia.
- In addition, associated states, external territories
and dependencies include: Anguilla, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman
Islands, Channel Islands, Falkland Islands, Isle of Man, Montserrat, Pitcairn
Islands, St. Helena, and Turks and Caicos Islands. Those that come as a
result of being part of Australia or New Zealand include: Christmas Island,
Cocos Island, Cook Islands, Niue, Norfolk Island, and Tokelau.
- Canada and the Free Trade Areas of the Americas Our neighbor
to the north and our largest trading partner, Canada, is the largest member
of the Commonwealth in this hemisphere. Canada is America's largest trading
partnerósurpassing our trade with Japan. On a daily basis the volume
is over $1B or about $400B a year. Twenty-three percent of American exports
are sent to Canada and more than 80% of Canada's exports come to us. Canada
is the largest export market for 39 of the 50 states. We import 80% of
Canada's wood, paper and pulp and 17% of their oil and 18% of their natural
gas. Furthermore, we not only share energy grids all across the northern
borders but New England obtains most of their power from Quebec.
- >From a military standpoint, over the past 46 years,
America has been inextricably linked to Canada through our joint military
efforts through the North American Aerospace Defense Command-NORAD. On
September 11, it was a Canadian general who was holding the chair at NORAD
that gave the order to initiate our defenses. As a result of September
11, more than 200 commercial planes were diverted to airports across our
country from coast to coast. Since then both countries have implemented
measures to strengthen military cooperation as well as law enforcement
and intelligence agencies. In December 2002, they established the Bi-national
Planning Group to develop joint plans for maritime and land defense, and
for military support to civil authorities in times of emergency. In Canada,
President Bush expressed hope that our two countries would move forward
on a ballistic missile defense system.
- In November, 2004 President Bush told Canada's Prime
Minister Paul Martin at a meeting on "Common Security, Common Prosperity,
A new Partnership in North America, "It's good to be home." He
went on to declare, "Both the U.S. and Canada participate together
in more multinational institutions than perhaps any two nations on earthófrom
NATO to the OAS to APEC in the Pacific." He went several steps forward
when he pledged,
- My country is determined to work as far as possible within
the framework of international organizations and we're hoping that other
nations will work with us to make those institutions more relevant and
more effective in meeting the unique threats of our time.
- With all this "interconnectedness," I would
like to seriously question our involvement with, not only Canada, but the
Free Trade Areas of the Americas-FTAA which is a trading zone for all the
countries in our hemisphere. Begun in 1994, the various cabinet level secretaries
of the 34 countries have been meeting throughout the year since then to
integrate our laws. In a the Western Hemisphere, Canada, Antigua, the Bahamas,
Belize, Dominica, Grenada, Guyana, Jamaica, St. Lucia, St. Kitts and Nevis,
St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and Trinidad and Tobago are members of
the British Commonwealth. We are outvoted by 13 votes to our one vote in
our own hemisphere! Let's take a look at the voting power of the Commonwealth
in the world today.
- THE VOTING POWER OF THE COMMONWEALTH IN THE WORLD TODAY
- Starting with the founding of the International Monetary
Fund and the World Bank in 1944, an economic international infrastructure
was established which was followed by a political international infrastructure
above the nation-states. Over the last 61 years, this infrastructure has
been developed to include trade, law, the military and now intelligence
as a result of the September 11 terrorist attacks on America. Interestingly
enough, the Commonwealth of Nations operates in each of these organizations.
Not once has an American President said, "Chose either the UN or the
Commonwealth." On the following page, you will see the power of the
Commonwealth. We are outvoted with our one vote at every turn.
- Let me just make mention that on a regional basis, the
U.S. and the world are also outvoted: Free Trade Areas of the Americas
by 13 votes, two votes in the European Union, and seven votes at the Asian
Pacific Economic Cooperation!
- Furthermore, whenever a committee is formed at the UN,
they rotate "presidency". For example, if there are 4 Commonwealth
countries that are part of a committee of 15, that means Britain is president
25% of the time. This is occurring throughout ALL of the hundreds of committees,
agencies, organizations, etc. throughout the WHOLE of the UN system.
- IN CONCLUSION
- In conclusion, I believe the purpose behind the construction
of the international level is to transfer complete and absolute power to
- I can now see why Prince Charles was working behind the
scenes. For him to be center-stage along with the power of the Commonwealth
would look like they are in the process of using Francis Drake's pirating
methods to grab the world! You can now see how The British have the majority
of votes in the global organizations of the world through the Commonwealth
and not one major power has questioned the ability of the Commonwealth
to operate in tandem with the other global organizations!
- And while we are on the subject of being outvoted, let
us turn to the EU for a moment. When it came together the whole purpose
was to create a "United States of Europe." Now that the travel
and trade barriers are down between the European states which now total
25, and they have adopted a common currency which is giving the dollar
a run for her money, and they have a common parliament in Strasbourg, how
come, they still have 25 votes at the UN instead of ONE? America has 50
states and we only get ONE vote! There, the Commonwealth has two votes:
Malta and the UK. Globally Queen Elizabeth II has out-maneuvered more than
what her namesake did when she defeated the Spanish Armada!
- "Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine
a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves and the rulers take
counsel together against the Lord and against his anointed, saying, Let
us break their bands asunder and cast away their cords from us. He that
sits in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
Then shall he speak to them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.
Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion. I will declare: Thou
art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. Ask of me and I shall give thee
the heathen for your inheritance and the uttermost parts of the earth for
your possession." Psalms 2
From Stephen Drew
- Why pick on the British? There are plenty of elite families
grabbing power in most countries. According to research by David Icke et
al, the Queen owns most of the land in America already.
- But the real problem I have with opinions like this is
the logic hinges around mythology that has little historical basis - the
bible. In order to accept that Prince Charles is 'perverting Genesis' we
must first believe that the story of Genesis is incontrovertibly true.
This is an act of faith - belief without knowing. Anybody who reads history,
particularly some of the works showcased on the excellent Jeff Rense show,
can not accept the bible as much more than analogy. Remember also it was
a British king - James I - who 'authorized' a version of the bible. Why
didn't he just do away with it if the intention was to flout it's 'laws'.
- I do believe in a creator, and my view about the environment
is that we should look after what was created and not sit back and justify
it's destruction with arguments based on faith and not reality. All indigenous
peoples around the world feel this way. But of course, they're 'pagans'.
Not the bible believing agents of the crown (and the Vatican) who throughout
history who have caused so much destruction and death in the name of God.
You have to wonder, what cause does the bible serve?
