Her second full paragraph
is a quote by a former prime minster of England: "The government
of this country has not only to deal with governments, kings and
ministers, but also with secret
societies, elements which must be taken into account, which
at the last moment can bring our plans to naught, which have everywhere
their unscrupulous agents,
who incite assassinations and can if necessary lead a
massacre.” - Benjamin Disraeli, at Aylesbury, Sept. 10, 1876
Bottom line, Benjamin Disraeli was very aware of the behind the
scenes actions performed by agents working for the Rothschild
bankster family. </>
The seven major secret societies pulling
the strings in AMERICA behind the scenes are skull & bones,
the bilderbergs, the trilateral commission, the council
on foreign relations, the royal institute of international
affairs known informally as the chatham house, bohemian grove's
attendees; hereafter referred to as owls, and the masonic
After combining those societies/packs
of wolves in
sheep's clothing, as far as I am concerned money
grubbing, pathological liars fits them
to a T. Doubters please do some homework on your own,
as way to many Americans have relied on cfr members, television
liars for hire like Katie/Katherine A. Couric, Paula Zahn, Brian Williams and George bilderberg,
for their so-called news.
In Part II I made it Clear why I won't capitalize
the names of the secret societies and Mr. John Fitzgerald
Kennedy, the last worthy man of the title President, has my back.
In late April 1961 during a speech to a gathering of newspaper publishers
John said: "The very word "secrecy" is repugnant
in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and
historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths
and to secret proceedings."
example of secret proceedings
- the goings on inside the chatham house; their "Rule"
reads as follows: "When a meeting, or part thereof,
is held under the Chatham House Rule, participants are free to use
the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation
of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant, may be revealed."
The chatham house, whelped in 1920, is
best described as a pack of carrion eating hyenas and the council on foreign relations, a
pack of monyed rats, took its present day form in 1921;
they along with two cfr spin off, packs the world
affairs councils and the american committees on foreign relations
all use the same rule. To cut to the chase their agendas
are a secret unless you are a
member. The "Rule" above makes that Crystal Clear and
there are currently over 100 councils operating in major
cities all across the lower 48 along with Alaska and Hawaii.
I hope everyone will read Part II and Part
III. because they contain information along with links every
Clear Thinker should be aware of. One example is the covered up
katzenbach memo where
attorney general Nicholas
Katzenbach wrote a memo
to Johnson's right hand Bill Moyers on November 25, 1963, recommending
Lyndon mason Johnson
put J. Edgar master mason Hoover’s
fbi in charge of the cover up,
and if necessary also appoint

John Fitzgerald Kennedy’s assassination
on November 22nd.
Johnson's "special assistant" before becoming his press
secretary in 1965. Moyers sat on the cfr/pratt rat's board from
1967-1974 and Moyers was a multiple time bilderberg
- `67, `68, `69, `70, `71 and 1973. You
can verify that here.
Moyers also sat on the money grubbing
bilderberg whore's steering committee
with perennial bilderberg

Ask Bill cfr
Moyer’s friends, Jim cfr Lehrer and gen. James bilderberg,
cfr, trilateral Jones have they received an award from
the amercian committees on foreign relations?
On the same
day the katzenbach memo

Johnson took a phone call from a journalist, Joe porc

any possible suspicion as to their independence and impartiality,
to draw up a written report giving to the public everything that
is relevant and then you will have this written report..."
The previous sentence can
be verified here.
Dean Acheson was a certified pratt rat, a pilgrims
society member and a multiple time bilderberg
including 1964 with two members of the warren cover-up
commission, pratt house chairman John
bankster McCloy and future president,

Unfortunately Percy skull & bones Rockefeller

Rothschild did they have a hand in choosing Kissinger?
Three more bilderberg whores in 1991 include slick Willy Clinton,
senator John skull & bones Chaffee and then
Virginia governor, Douglas mason Wilder. For those wondering,
“who was responsible for fast tracking the Clinton's into the
oval/offal pile office in `92?” I've been typing clues as to
the packs responsible for placing them there.
AMERICA it is important to know skull &
bones is a spin off from the masonic brotherhood.
Doubters can ask George W. skull Bush, John bones

AMERICA, it is to The Credit of The First Americans,
the forgotten race, The Red People that I haven't found one of their
names on a list of secret society wolves.
Mr. David A. Rivera, other than bones,
I judge a pack's power by the number of Rothschild family
members among its membership, and after studying the bilderberg
and trilateral packs, there are more Roth/Ratschild
bilderberg whores than trilateral wolves.
Before we break down bilderberg
should understand there is no such thing as a democrat, republican
or independent. If you haven't read Mr. Gary Allen's The Rockefeller File
published in 1976 then please bear with me. I'll start with each
takes a mandatory Harvard
sponsored course which
should be titled "Welcome to the new world order."
Folks believe it or not, Russia's fledgling duma/Politburo/parliament
take the same course.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the point I want to make
– everything is a game within a game.
And last week I provided Facts into America, England and Nato building
the Soviet Union from the ground up. The same can be said for mainland
China. As to the pratt rats offering welcome to the new
world order classes, ask senator Joe pratt
rat Lieberman, a rocke-independent, or former senator,
current sec. of defense Chuck bilderberg, pratt rat Hagel,
a rocke-pub, or Michelle rocke-dem Obama, a board
of directors member for Chicago's council rats. I first
read about her board member status
4 or 5 years ago.
Sisters and Brothers, Gary has a sense of humor
and it was Mr. Allen who coined the terms rockedems and rockepubs,
which makes perfect sense after realizing David Rockefeller sr.
was a founding bilderberg in 1954, and when the trilateral
pack went international back in 1973 it was under David Rocke
senior's guidance. Bottom line rocke-dem and rocke-pub
house of rats members, senators and governors
attend bilderberg whore and trilateral skank conclaves.
Gentlemen please Cowboy Up-Red Man Up by asking
former senator Mark bilderberg whore, pratt
rat Warner when he last made a speech to members of the american
committees on foreign relations in Newport News, VA? Brothers
former rocke-pub senator John alfalfa club
pratt rat Warner is as sorry and back stabbing

Cover-Up committee on assassinations and former rocke-dem
senator, Christopher multiple time bilderberg

Now that more cover-up
artists and players
in the wolf packs have been revealed we are almost ready
to break down bilderberg 2002, which is an example of the
crooked as a snake anglo-american establishment
- and the department of justice; hereafter referred to as
the dept. of corruption, working hand in hand.
To understand the significance of bilderberg
2002, first we have to travel back to September 20, 2001, when
president George skull, owl jr. received a
"letter" from the project for the new american
century, the pnac pack. Some wolves inside
the now defunct pnac include the world affairs council's
alpha rat Paula Dobriansky, Jeb act of terrorism Bush, former
cia director R. James owl, pratt Woolsey, Vin bilderberg,
pratt, trilateral Weber, Paul bilder-whore, pratt, quill
& dagger Wolfowitz and Donald multiple time bilderberg
whore, bohemian owl Rumsfeld, who is very familiar with the
harold pratt house's interior. Rumsfeld’s first time
as a conniving bilderberg whore was in 1975.
An excerpt from the letter: "......even if
not link Iraq directly to the attack, any strategy aiming at
the eradication of terrorism and its sponsors must include a determined
effort to remove Saddam Hussein from power in Iraq. Failure to undertake
such an effort will constitute an early and perhaps decisive surrender
in the war on international terrorism."
Those who have questioned why the bilder-whores
Kean, Hamilton and Zelikow left Building 7 completely out of their
published lies, those bilderbergs knew there was no
possible way to try an explain that building imploding straight
down onto its foundation, so they left it out of their
lies/report. Please track down online a raging fire in Madrid,
Spain which started near midnight on February 12, 2005 and burned
for right at 24 hours. AMERICA on February 14th the Windsor Tower
Hotel was still standing. Sisters and Brothers around the Globe,
steel columns on some of the upper floors of the 32 story building
were warped due to the intense heat but that's it. Later
the hotel was torn down and rebuilt.
As to the Twin Towers which were also imploded
on SEPTEMBER 11, 2001, on July 28, 1945, a B-25 twin engine bomber
crashed into the Empire State Building between the 78th
and 80th floors and the resulting fire was put out in
less than 45 minutes. Barack bilder-whore in 2008 Obama when
you and George skull jr. were standing side by side
while lying on September 11, 2011, no doubt both of you had
noticed the Empire State Building was still standing. George and
Barack, the last time I was in New York City was 2005 and needless
to say the building in question was standing tall.
Fact of the Matter: the Twin Towers were imploded
from the top down, and Building 7 was imploded from the ground
Because of the bomber crashing into the Empire
State Building a panel of engineering experts was convened before
the Twin Towers were built. Readers it is a well-known FACT that
WTC 1 and WTC 2 were Built to Withstand a Minimum of Four Direct
Hits by Boeing 707s, at the time the largest commercial aircraft.

Excerpts from Michael Mukasey's bio at Debevoise & Plimton:
“Michael B. Mukasey recently served as Attorney General of
the United States, the nation's chief law enforcement officer. As
Attorney General from November 2007 to January 2009, he oversaw
the U.S. Department of Justice and advised on critical issues of
domestic and international law. Judge Mukasey joined Debevoise as
a partner in the litigation practice in New York in February 2009,
focusing his practice primarily on internal investigations, independent
board reviews and corporate governance. From 1988 to 2006, Judge
Mukasey served as a district judge in the United States District
Court for the Southern District of New York, becoming Chief Judge
in 2009 the law firm Debevoise
& Plimton was one of the pratt house rat's
And it would appear it was Mukasey who kept the Oral Histories
spoken by Firefighters and Others at the scene on September
11, 2001, hidden from
the Public until August 2005. One year after the 9/11
commission spewed their lies.
I first learned about the Oral Hitories
while reading one of Miss Devvy's Columns in 2007. In Her Column
I read Fire Fighter Richard Banaciski saying, "There was an
explosion in the South Tower. It seemed like on television when
they blow up these buildings. It seemed like it was going all around
like a belt, all those explosions."
Another Oral History account, Assistant Fire Commissioner
Stephen Gregory: “I saw flash, flash, flash at the lower level
of the building. You know like when they demolish a building.”
Another, Paramedic Daniel Rivera: “It was
like a professional demolition where they set charges on certain
floors and you hear pop, pop, pop, pop, pop.”
In Part II, I mentioned the bush-blair memo,
now let's visit that memo's
precursor, the downing street memo.
On 19 September 2004, the Sunday Herald published
a well worth reading piece.
The writer Neil Mackay chose "Bush and Blair: Secrets and Lies" for his title.
Please read ten informative paragraphs: "The
rotting albatross that is Iraq still hangs around Blair’s
neck, and, after the revelations of secret government papers laying
out the dangers of joining Bush's war, its stench has become impossible
for anyone to ignore but for the man closest to it – the Prime
BLAIR’S secrets are out, and this is what
he knew a full year before the invasion of Iraq: the war was illegal,
it would turn into a quagmire that could last for generations and
it was more than likely that, once Saddam was overthrown, a new
Iraqi government, even a democratic one, would start developing
weapons of mass destruction. These warnings were contained in a
series of top-secret documents that Blair read and digested long
before the invasion. It's little wonder that Menzies Campbell, the
Liberal Democrat foreign affairs spokesman, says these revelations
are “the crown jewels”.
The documents show that, despite the reservations
of his own foreign secretary and the Cabinet Office Overseas and
Defense Secretariat, Blair was swept along by George W Bush into
a war that the British people did not want. His motive? The preservation
of the transatlantic special relationship. America, under Bush,
was going to take out Saddam no matter what happened – and
the White House clearly expected its loyal ally the UK to follow
in step behind the US.
The contents of the documents couldn't have been
revealed at a worse time for Blair. Last week, Kofi Annan said the
invasion of the Iraq was “illegal”. The forthcoming
report by the Iraq Survey Group, which has been hunting for WMD
in Iraq, will say Saddam had no stockpiles of banned weapons.
At the same time, MI6 was arguing against Blair’s
decision to publish a dossier of declassified information designed
to convince the British public that Saddam was dangerous. MI6 was
saying that the intelligence didn't support the claims that Blair
wanted to make. Jack Straw felt the dossier would be meaningless.
In a letter to the Prime Minister marked “Secret
– Strictly Personal”, Sir David Manning, Blair’s
foreign policy adviser, summed up the talks he had in Washington
in March 2002, saying: “I think there is a real risk that
the administration underestimates the difficulties. They may agree
that failure isn't an option, but this does not mean they will necessarily
Bush “still has to find
answers to the big questions”, Manning wrote, including a solution
to the most vital problem: “What happens on the morning after?”
Manning added that the “US scrambling to
establish a link between Iraq and al-Qaeda is so far unconvincing.
To get public and parliamentary support for military options we
have to be convincing that the threat is so serious/imminent that
it is worth sending our troops to die for”.
Manning had briefed Sir Christopher Meyer, the
then British ambassador to the US, and had spoken to US National
Security Adviser Condoleezza Rice. Manning told her that Blair wanted
Bush not to rush into war until the invasion was deemed legal –
something that would need the full support of the UN Security Council.
A memo from Meyer was circulated which warned UK policy not to underestimate
Bush's passion for ousting Saddam. With Washington pushing for war
with Iraq in the autumn of 2002, Blair’s advisers told him
that: “if any invasion is contemplated this autumn, then a
decision will need to be taken in principle six months in advance”.
That left Blair little or no time to make the case for war legally
Blair traveled to Bush's ranch in Crawford, Texas,
in March 2002, to talk war with the President. Here was how Jack
Straw interpreted the meeting: “The rewards from your visit
to Crawford will be few. The risks are high both for you and the
government.” Straw said there was a long way to go before
parliament could be convinced about “the scale of the threat
from Iraq and why this has got worse recently; what distinguishes
the Iraqi threat from that of for example Iran and North Korea so
as to justify military action; military action in terms of international
law; and whether the consequences of military action really would
be a compliant, law-abiding replacement government.” A side
note: the downing street
memo traces back to July 22, 2002.
"Previous to the appearance of the Downing Street Memo, six other
British (Blair) Cabinet papers originating around March 2002 were
obtained by Michael Smith and used in two Daily Telegraph stories
published on 18 September 2004. The documents describe issues relating
to the meetings held between Bush and Blair at Bush's Crawford, Texas,
ranch in April 2002.
Next are six paragraphs from the Washington Post's Jefferson
Morley on June 7, 2005:
"More than a month after its publication,
the so-called Downing Street Memo remains among the top ten viewed
articles on The Times of London site.
The July 2002 memo, labeled "SECRET AND STRICTLY
CONFIDENTIAL - UK EYES ONLY," reports the views of "C,"
code name for Richard Dearlove, the chief of British intelligence.
Dearlove had just returned from a visit with Bush administration
officials eight months before the war in Iraq began.
"Military action was now seen as inevitable,"
Dearlove told blair and his senior defense policy advisers. "Bush
wanted to remove Saddam, through military action, justified by the
conjunction of terrorism and WMD. But the intelligence and facts
were being fixed around the policy." (Hmm, fixed around
the policy, instead of the intelligence and facts fixing policy.)
A separate secret briefing paper for the meeting
said Britain and the United States had to "create" conditions
to justify the war.
On Sunday, "Meet the Press" host Tim
Russert asked Republican National Committee chairman Ken Mehlman
about the memo. Mehlman said "that report has been discredited
by everyone else who's looked at it since."
When Russert noted the authenticity of the report
has not been discredited, Mehlman said, "I believe that
the findings of the report, the fact that the intelligence was somehow
fixed, has been totally discredited by everyone who's looked at
Americans, how do You know when a national
chair of one of the rocke-parties is lying?
Whenever one of those black hearted wolves
opens their mouth and howls?
The gist of the above - skull
jr., and former pratt house director,
Cheney, who at best is a money hungry skank exactly
like his trilateral
wife, Lynne, and the military industrial complex
were growling to
be fed regardless of the FACT Saddam did not have weapons of mass
destruction. Brothers it's a given I wasn't invited to bilderberg 2002,
however there is no doubt in my mind about then sec. of defense, pratt rat, owl
Rumsfeld announcing America was going to attack Iraq in 2003. For the
record, Rumsfeld and his pack
inside the Marriott in Chantilly, Virginia, from May 30-June 2.
Other than perennial bilderbergs David
Rockefeller, Vernon Jordan jr. and Henry Kissinger, I'll point out
fifteen more black-hearted americans in attendance and their
titles at the time. Viet Dinh - assistant attorney general
for office of policy development. Alan Greenspan - chairman, federal
reserve system. Kay Hutchison - a rocke-pub senate skank
from Texas. Charles James - assistant attorney general for
antitrust. One of Barack's good buddies James Johnson - vice
chairman Perseus. John LaFalce - a rocke-dem house of rats member
from New York. Bill McDonough - president and ceo, federal reserve
bank of New York. Andrea Mitchell - chief foreign affairs correspondent
Nbc. George Soros - chairman Soros fund management. Former cia
head John Deutch - institute professor MIT. One of Eric Holder's
partners in crime, Stuart Eizenstat, from Covington &
Burling, the liar filled law firm writing Holder's pay
checks at the time. Jim Hoagland - associate editor Washington Post.
Michael Moskow - president federal reserve bank of
Chicago. Terry McAuliffe - chairman democratic national committee
and Mark Racicot - chairman republican national committee.
Those names can be confirmed or denied by current pratt house
co-chair Carla bilder-skank Hills, as she was damn
non-American black-hearts invited to bilderberg 2002
include the Netherlands’ queen Beatrix; Russia's
Lilia Shevtsova - senior associate, Carnegie Moscow Center;
Eric bankster Roll - senior adviser, UBS Warburg Ltd.; John

Corporation; Conrad media Black - chairman, Telegraph Group

chairman, ThyssenKrupp AG; Jean-Claude bankster Trichet
- governor, Banque de France; James bankster Wolfensohn
- president, The World Bank; Jacob bankster Wallenberg -
chairman of the board, Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken and one
of Tony who is a bilder-whore himself Blair’s cabinet members,
Gareth house of lords Williams.
The “key” to bilderberg 2002 is this – 2002
is the only bilderberg pack meeting on record where “both
rocke-party chairs” were invited. Terry rocke-dem
McAuliffe and Mark rocke-pub Racicot received marching orders to
drum up support for a war on capital/gut pile hill. I believe it
was in October 2002 when the military industrial-congressional
complex voted for a war in Iraq.
And let no American lose sight of the Fact two wolves
from the dept. of corruption listened to
every word spoken inside bilderberg 2002. And that
very same dept. of corruption played a major
role in covering up President John Kennedy’s
assassination along with the implosions
of the Twin Towers and #7 on SEPTEMBER 11, 2001. Instead of arresting
those who ordered and those who wired
those three buildings with demolition charges, Robert elmo
secret society member Ashcroft’s crooked, corrupt
lawyers were busy writing an oxymoron known
today as the “patriot act".
chatham hyena Blair and George skull, owl,
alfalfa club member,
owl Bush jr. ran into a problem, the united nation’s weapons inspectors
had not found any weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.
Truth Be Known
the united nations is a farce. If
the u.n. was worth a wooden nickel the very first motion passed
would have been a ban on the shipment of weapons and munitions across
borders. Instead the united nation’s security council members
lead the planet in manufacturing and shipping weapons for war.
On Feb. 2, 2006 Richard-Norton Taylor a writer for The Guardian
wrote a piece under the heading - “Blair-Bush
deal before Iraq war revealed in secret memo – PM promised
to be 'solidly behind' US invasion with or without UN backing”
Please read ten paragraphs:
“Tony Blair told President George Bush that he was "solidly"
behind US plans to invade Iraq before he sought advice about the
invasion's legality and despite the absence of a second UN resolution,
according to a new account of the build-up to the war published
today. A memo of a two-hour meeting between the two leaders at the
White House on January 31 2003 - nearly two months before the invasion
- reveals that Mr Bush made it clear the US intended to invade whether
or not there was a second UN resolution and even if UN inspectors
found no evidence of a banned Iraqi weapons programme.
"The diplomatic strategy had
to be arranged around the military planning", the president
told Mr Blair. The prime minister is said to have raised no objection.
He is quoted as saying he was "solidly with the president and
ready to do whatever it took to disarm Saddam".
The memo seen by
Prof Sands reveals:
Mr Bush told Mr
Blair that the US was so worried about the failure to find hard
evidence against Saddam that it thought of "flying U2 reconnaissance
aircraft planes with fighter cover over Iraq, painted in UN colours".
Mr Bush added: "If Saddam fired on them, he would be in breach
[of UN resolutions]".
Mr Bush even expressed
the hope that a defector would be extracted from Iraq and give a
"public presentation about Saddam's WMD". He is also said
to have referred Mr Blair to a "small possibility" that
Saddam would be "assassinated".
Mr Blair told the US president
that a second UN resolution would be an "insurance policy",
providing "international cover, including with the Arabs"
if anything went wrong with the military campaign, or if Saddam increased
the stakes by burning oil wells, killing children, or fomenting internal
divisions within Iraq.
The revelation that Mr Blair had supported the US president's plans
to go to war with Iraq even in the absence of a second UN resolution
contrasts with the assurances the prime minister gave parliament shortly
after. On February 25 2003 - three weeks after his trip to Washington
- Mr Blair told the Commons that the government was giving "Saddam
one further, final chance to disarm voluntarily".
The meeting between
Mr Bush and Mr Blair, attended by six close aides, came at a time
of growing concern about the failure of any hard intelligence to back
up claims that Saddam was producing weapons of mass destruction in
breach of UN disarmament obligations. It took place a few days before
the then US secretary Colin Powell made claims - since discredited
- in a dramatic presentation at the UN about Iraq's weapons programme.
Sir Menzies Campbell, the Liberal Democrat acting leader, said last
night: "The fact that consideration was apparently given to using
American military aircraft in UN colours in the hope of provoking
Saddam Hussein is a graphic illustration of the rush to war. It would
also appear to be the case that the diplomatic efforts in New York
after the meeting of January 31 were simply going through the motions.
minister's offer of February 25 to Saddam Hussein was about as empty
as it could get. He has a lot of explaining to do." End quote.
