- Here is virtually immediate confirmation
of the New World Order Intelligence Update's scoop on the Bilderberg plan
to carve up Yugoslavia, which is now receiving its final approval at the
current Bilderberg Conference in Sintra, Portugal. This story was first
given to, and published in, the PORTUGAL NEWS, by the New World Order
Intelligence Update *a week* ago - that is, five days *before* this Hungarian
announcement was featured
- The accuracy of our Bilderberg warnings
has been proven right, again and again, in detail over the years, and,
sadly, this will prove no exception.

- 1750 GMT, 990602 Hungarian far-right
leader Istvan Csurka called on June 2 for Belgrade to return an ethnically
Hungarian northern area of its territory to Hungary, simultaneously with
accepting a peace plan for Kosovo. Csurka, who leads the Party of Hungarian
Life and Justice, said part of the northern Serbian province of Voivodina
-- which is a home for 300,000 ethnic Hungarians and used to belong to
Hungary before WWI -- should be given back to Hungary. Csurka referred
to the area stretching 36 miles into Yugoslavia, from the Hungarian border
to a line drawn by the Yugoslav towns Sombor, Vrbas, Srborban, Novi Becej
- Intriguingly, US NEWS AND WORLD REPORT,
a magazine well-connected with the the elite through David Gergen, is now
running *this* story, presumambly as the first of many. Note the last line
in this article.
- Remember the proposal for a tax on "Internet
transactions" to support the UN? Well, right as they are meeting,
this item appears in an influential US news magazine to prepare the way,
presumably, for the acceptance of part of just such a taxing agenda! Now
its "Internet postage"; next it's internet commerce... _______________________________

- At the office, and at home, E-mail could
- BY KIM CLARK
- When Jeremy Gross first learned about
E-mail, he thought it was "the greatest productivity improvement ever."
But now the managing director of technology for Countrywide Home Loans
is not so sure. Of the 300 E-mails he gets a day, about 200 are bad jokes,
spam, or irrelevant memos copied to him. "The guy who invented that
damn 'cc' [carbon copy] should be lined up against a wall and shot,"
- In all seriousness, however, Gross is
proposing a solution that many E-mail fans consider only slightly less
drastic. He has joined a growing number of employers and Internet service
providers who want to charge heavy E-mail users more. If they succeed in
these first steps toward a kind of "E-stamp," the days of free
E-mail may be numbered.
- The E-stamp, known in the industry as
a "chargeback" because providers charge the cost of a message
back to its sender, is hardly revolutionary. People are used to paying
extra for each telegram, letter, or long-distance telephone call. In the
early days of E-mail, many service providers charged 25 or 50 cents for
each message. It also makes good economic sense. It allows Internet service
providers and corporate E-mail departments to collect higher revenues as
their costs rise.
- Worse than Hitler? But chargeback provokes
passionate opposition because it violates the Internet ethic of unfettered
use. Kevin O'Connor, an executive director of Detroit-based Superior Consultant
Inc., says he understands the economic reasoning, but will "rebel"
against usage charges because unlimited E-mail makes him and everyone he
knows more productive and happier. Chargeback would not only be like "dialing
back the oxygen" but also smacks a "little of Machiavelli and
a lot of Big Brother." Some E-mail addicts are far less rational.
Robert Metcalfe, a founder of 3Com and currently a vice president of International
Data Group, has received two death threats after speeches promoting chargeback.
"One young student said I was worse than Hitler," he says.
- The companies installing the chargeback
systems say they can't afford to do otherwise. The problem is that the
flat-rate pricing schemes launched to encourage E-mail usage worked too
well. At Countrywide, the nation's biggest independent mortgage company,
E-mail traffic has skyrocketed from 1,000 messages a week five years ago
to 1 million now.
- E-mail overload isn't just annoying,
it's expensive. Each spam costs recipients about 3 cents in wasted worker
time and computer memory, says Bright Light Technologies, which makes antispam
programs. E-mail can be even more expensive for those who provide the backbone
servers and Internet connectionsemployers or companies such as America
Online. In support equipment and services, it costs providers about 9 cents
to process each message, according to the Electronic Messaging Association,
which opposes these pricing schemes.
- Little wonder then that about 75 major
employers and Internet service providers, such as Bank of America, Unisys,
and MasterCard, have bought and installed computer programs that allow
them to trackand chargeby individual E-mail. Most are approaching chargeback
gingerly. None has adopted a strict pay-as-you-send policy, says Randy
Britton, spokesman for the biggest chargeback-software company, Tally Systems
Corp. Some ISPs are also phasing in usage charges. EDS, the Plano, Texas-based
information services company, for example, is charging its E-mail clients
for usage over a generous ceiling.
- But the economic logic, so far, anyway,
hasn't been sufficient to overcome popular distaste. Countrywide's Gross
has already experimented with, and abandoned, a system that charged users
for storing lots of messages in their computers' electronic memory. The
reason: Even he found it to be a hassle. So now he's looking for some easy
way to fairly recoup his department's costs without discouraging useful
communication. These days, he's considering a three-tiered system in which
each department will be charged differently for heavy, average, or light
E-mail users. This, too, seems logical, but he thinks it will be a tough
sales job. "We don't want to shove it down people's throats,"
- Unfortunately, just like banks did with
those annoying cash-machine charges, that's probably what will happen.

- GALVANISED by the conflict in Kosovo,
Tony Blair and other European leaders today lay the foundations for a common
defence policy that will enable the European Union to mount military operations
in countries near its borders.

Government as historic, falls well short of creating a combat-ready "European

EU summit envisages European troops being used to intervene in crises to
keep the peace and offer humanitarian aid under the aegis of Nato, but
without American involvement.
- An EU capacity to field forces separately
from the American-led alliance is seen as vital to equipping the Union
with the diplomatic and security muscle that it has long lacked.
- Reinforcing the push for diplomatic clout
to match the EU's economic might, the leaders are expected to appoint Javier
Solana, the Nato Secretary-General, to the new post of EU head of foreign
