Greens really are commies: 130 UN-backed green groups call for end of capitalism

Our suspicions are confirmed.

The green movement really is just the newest version of Marxist communism disguised as a concern for the environment.

At the end of a 4-day United Nations-backed conference, called the Social Pre-COP Preparatory Meeting, of 130 green activist groups in Venezuela, the groups issued a declaration that global warming climate change can only be “combated” by ending capitalism altogether.

Green commies celebrating Margarita DeclarationGreen commies celebrating the Margarita Declaration, July 18, 2014, Venezula.

The Margarita Declaration said: “The structural causes of climate change are linked to the current capitalist hegemonic system. To combat climate change it is necessary to change the system.”

That capitalism is the cause of “climate change” is also a position of the socialist Venezuelan government, the host of the meeting.

The declaration will be handed to environment government ministers when they meet ahead of the UN’s main round of climate talks in Lima this year.

The Social pre-COP meeting was the first time that NGOs (non-governmental organizations) were invited to participate with the UN at this scale at international climate talks. The government of Venezuela said the purpose of the meeting is to “set the basis of an alliance between peoples and governments”.

Ironically, although the Social pre-COP meeting was backed by the UN, the meeting’s end product of the Margarita Declaration opposes the views of the UN and many national governments on “combating” “climate change” via a capitalist “green economy” by encouraging green growth through carbon markets and clean energy investments.

Instead, the Margarita Declaration calls:

  • carbon markets a “false solution” to the problem of climate change. The UN has set up its own carbon market, called the Clean Development Mechanism, which allows developed countries to pay for projects that will reduce the carbon footprint of poor countries.
  • a UN-backed forest conservation scheme, Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Land Degradation (REDD), “dangerous and unethical”. Under REDD, rich countries pay developing nations to preserve their forests, removing some of the financial incentive to chop them down. Deforestation is a significant contributor to climate change as it releases the carbon that is stored in trees.

Objections to the “green economy” prompted a walkout at the Rio+20 summit in 2012 because some developing countries wanted rich countries to simply hand over cash and “sustainable” technologies to poorer nations. Venezuela, a staunchly socialist government, has long opposed the “green economy” concept, alongside other Latin American countries including Argentina, Bolivia, Cuba, Ecuador, and Nicaragua.

Sophie Yeo of rtcc.org reports that a participant at the July 15-18 Social pre-COP meeting who insisted on his anonymity said that while most of the Venezuelan groups present at the meeting were supportive of the Venezulan government’s position, there were 34 Venezuelan NGOs who rejected their invitation to the gathering, due to concerns that it would provide an opportunity for the government to push their socialist agenda.

Here are some choice quotes from Margarita Declaration on Climate Change, Social PreCOP Preparatory Meeting, July 15-18, 2014, Margarita Island, Venezuela:

Pg. 2: “Men and women have become consumerist monsters that consume all the resources given by the Earth”. Génesis Carmona, aged 11, elected representative of the Venezuelan Children Environment Movements.

Pg. 3: The world needs corrective actions before damages become irreversible. We denounce the lack of political will of the wealthiest countries.

Pg. 3: Colonialism continues to operate. Climate change occurs within a historic context where a group of countries based their development on practices generating the current environmental crisis, including Climate Change, while others suffer the worst consequences. The developed countries causing the Climate Change intend to side-track the discussion towards technological or market solutions, thus eluding their historic responsibilities.

P. 3: The struggles of the South must be supported in the countries of the North. The wealthiest countries must commit themselves to finding a solution to the Climate Change. Youth in the North must exert pressure on their governments in that sense. There is not much time left, the global North must take on its historic responsibility and youth must exert pressure for this to happen.

Pg. 4: The main sources for climate crisis are the political and economic systems commercializing and reifying nature and life, thus impoverishing spirituality and imposing consumerism and developmentalism that generate unequal regimes and exploitation of resources. This global crisis is exacerbated by unsustainable practices of exploitation and consumption by the developed countries and the elites of the developing countries…. For such purposes, it is required that the developed countries meet their moral and legal obligations, especially vis-à-vis vulnerable and marginalized countries and communities by lifting barriers such as intellectual property rights which prevent the attainment of the preservation of life over the planet and the salvation of human species. We likewise urge them to comply with the financial contribution and the transfer of safe and locally suitable technologies free from barriers such as intellectual property rights….

pg. 5: According to scientific evidence, in order not to exceed 1.5 degrees increase of temperature, it becomes necessary not to produce 80% of the fossil fuel reserves known. For this purpose, the developed countries require to immediately reduce consumption and production of fossil fuels….

Pg. 6: We reject any attempt to implement or promote dangerous and unethical solutions or responses to Climate Change, solutions whereby wealthy industrialized countries and corporations ultimately seek to use climate change as a means for profit. Some of such false responses, such as carbon production and markets have caused damages in our forests and soils, whereas the implementation of the “United Nations Program on Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation in Developing Countries (UN-REDD)” and the production of agrofuels, have already caused seizure and fragmentation of lands.

Pg. 7: We demand the repair of historic debts, and reject the financing proposals which do not bring about effective transformations for a sustainable solution.

Pg. 9: It is necessary that the ancestral knowledge of the Peoples be deemed as equally important and valuable as scientific knowledge for decision-making and for actions against climate change by the UN and by the governments.

Pg. 10: The structural causes for climate change are linked to the current capitalist hegemonic system. Fighting the climate change involves changing the system.

Pg. 10: The change of the system must provide for a transformation of the economic, political, social and cultural systems at local, national, regional and global levels.

Pg. 11: We reject the implementation of false solutions to climate change, such as: carbon markets and other forms of privatization and commodification of life; geo-engineering, agrofuels productions, and measures favoring agribusiness and harming the production of food in an agro ecological manner, such as the use of transgenic seeds and agrotoxics, synthetic fertilizers and any other measure lessening the priority of the right to Good Living, health and the eradication of poverty enshrined in the Convention. We likewise reject the green economy, the intellectual property rights; the mega water dam projects, monocultures and nuclear energy.

Pg. 12: Ensure the financing by the developed countries to developing countries for such transformations, and for compensation and rehabilitation of the impacts of Climate Change. Financing must not be conditioned, and the management of the funds supplied shall be in the hands of the Peoples. The financing of mitigation and adaptation actions by the developed countries in the developing countries is a moral and legal obligation under the Convention by virtue of the historic responsibilities of the former. Funding must be reliable, predictable, sufficient and adequate. All obligations of the countries in the North in relation to finance, technology transfer and support for the compensation of losses and damages should be legally binding under the Climate Change Convention.

Wayne Allyn Root on the Murder of the Middle Class

What is the Murder of the Middle Class?
By Wayne Allyn Root

My new book, “The Murder of the Middle Class” launches today Monday July 14th across America. It’s about how America, the greatest nation in world history, is being destroyed, plundered and looted by the premeditated “Murder of the Middle Class.” This is no accident, mistake, or coincidence. This is a purposeful plan. This is the boldest, grandest criminal conspiracy in world history.

Although the man at the center of this massive world-class fraud is Barack Obama, there are many moving parts and co-conspirators. These include famous billionaire businessmen, corporate CEOs, the Federal Reserve, Wall Street bankers, central bankers, government employee unions, the IRS, EPA, NSA, the Bar Association, assorted communists and America-haters, and even some well-known D.C. establishment Republicans. It’s quite a shocking list of conspirators.

Lies and fraud are at the center of this “murder of the middle class.” President Obama and various big government politicians need to distract the middle class from their real agenda. Lies are their WMD- weapon of mass distraction.

So they claim Obamacare is about “saving the sick and uninsured”…when the real objective is income redistribution (through higher taxes and higher premiums) to make the middle class poor and dependent on government.

They claim environmental regulations and green energy will save us from global warming…when the real objective is bankrupting the middle class by tripling utility bills, gas bills and grocery bills.

They claim immigration reform is about “protecting innocent children”…when the real objective is to create 12 million new low-wage employees in the labor force…depress middle class wages for generations to come…create 12 million future Democratic voters…and assign all of them lawyers at the expense of middle class taxpayers, to enrich the Bar Association, the biggest donor to the Democrat Party.

They claim higher taxes are to “create equality”… when the real objective is income redistribution and starving the biggest donors to conservative causes and candidates- small business and the middle class.

They claim higher education spending is “for the kids,” …when the real objective is enriching teachers unions so they can funnel hundreds of millions back to Democrat politicians.

They claim bailing out GM was to “save jobs”…when the real goal was saving bloated pensions for auto union members, whose unions kicked back hundreds of millions to Democrat politicians.

The Fed claims quantitative easing is “to save the economy”…when the real goal was making crony capitalist Warren Buffett $12.7 billion richer last year, while the children and unborn grandchildren of middle class taxpayers owe back $17 trillion in debt used to fund a fixed craps game on Wall Street.

It’s always about lying to cover-up the real agenda of murdering the middle class; redistributing wealth; making it impossible for small business to compete with big business; rewarding lobbyists, lawyers and crony capitalists; keeping politicians in office for life; and putting big government in control of our every move.

But the biggest lie of all is when politicians like Obama claim, “It’s all okay. Things are getting better. We’re in a recovery. Look away, there’s nothing to see here.”

It’s not okay. This author was just notified by his health insurance company that my family’s policy has been cancelled. When Obama was elected my bill was $500 per month. Today it’s $1700 per month. But now my family will have no insurance at all, because of Obamacare. Tens of millions of middle class Americans will soon receive the same notice. This is no mistake. This was premeditated fraud upon the middle class.

My grocery bills have skyrocketed. How about yours? My electric bills are at all-time highs. Gas prices have doubled since Obama became president. How can middle class people survive, without becoming dependent on government? Ah, that’s the point.

All this while the economy is in crisis and collapse. The GDP for the first quarter was NEGATIVE 2.9%, one of the worst showings in history, six years after Obama’s trillion dollar stimulus promised to “save” the economy. That stimulus went to Obama’s voters (the poor) and Obama’s donors (the super rich). But the bill (in the form of debt) goes to the middle class for decades to come.

No, things are not alright. Here are just a few of the facts from my new book, “The Murder of the Middle Class:”

China is set to pass America as the world’s #1 economy based on consumer spending. THIS YEAR. It will be the first time since 1872 that America has not been the #1 economy in the world.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2616806/American-dollar-hits-wall-China-prepares-leap-place-worlds-largest-economy-end-year.html

For the first time in history America’s middle class isn’t #1 in the world. Canada’s middle class has passed us.

20% of U.S. families don’t have a single member who is employed:

http://www.cnsnews.com/news/article/ali-meyer/record-number-americans-not-labor-force-june

The number of working age Americans without a job has increased by about 10 million in Obama’s first 5 years as President. That means each and every year of Obama’s Presidency, 2 million more Americans disappeared from the workforce.

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-01-13/number-working-age-americans-without-job-has-risen-almost-10-million-under-obama

America’s 2nd largest employer is a Temp Agency.

http://washingtonexaminer.com/recovery-woes-americas-second-largest-employer-is-a-temp-agency/article/2532778

70% of Americans believe we are still in the middle of the economic crisis, or that the worst is yet to come. And, they are correct.

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-06-04/7-10-americans-believe-crisis-not-over-or-worst-yet-come-52-cant-afford-their-homes

There is no doubt the great American middle class is being murdered. I’ve spent the last year writing the “Murder of the Middle Class” to give all Americans the information, tools and courage to save the middle class and the American Dream. This fight is just getting started. Get informed and join the battle. God Bless America.

World Health Organization: HIV “exploding” among homosexual men

HIV HIV or human immunodeficiency virus is the virus that can lead to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome, or AIDS. Unlike some other viruses, the human body cannot get rid of HIV. That means that once you have HIV, you have it for life.

The virus is spread through body fluids such as blood, semen (cum), vaginal fluids, and breast milk. In the United States, HIV is most commonly passed from one person to another through unprotected anal or vaginal sex and through sharing needles or other drug equipment.

Great strides in tackling HIV/AIDS have been made across the world, with the number of new infections plunging by a third between 2001 and 2012, when 2.3 million people contracted the virus.

But the AFP reports that on July 11, 2014, the UN health agency World Health Organization (WHO) warned that HIV infections are rising among homosexual men in many parts of the world.

Gottfried Hirnschall, who heads WHO’s HIV department, calls the rise “exploding.” Infection rates are rising again among men who have sex with men – the group at the epicentre of AIDS pandemic when it first emerged 33 years ago, he told reporters in Geneva. A younger generation that has grown up among new treatments that make it possible to live with HIV are less focused on the disease. Today, this group is 19 times more likely than the general population to be infected by HIV. In Bangkok for instance, the incidence of HIV among men who have sex with men stands at 5.7%, compared to less than 1% for the overall population.

In its new recommendations for combating the HIV/AIDS pandemic, published on July 11, for the first time WHO “strongly recommends men who have sex with men consider taking antiretroviral medicines as an additional method of preventing HIV infection”.

US authorities made the same recommendation in May.

Taking pre-exposure prophylaxis medication, for instance as a single daily pill combining two antiretrovirals, in addition to using condoms, has been estimated to cut HIV incidence among such men by 20-25%, which means up to one million new infections among sodomites over 10 years can be averted.

The new guidelines also apply to other high-risk groups, such as transgender people, prisoners, people who inject drugs, and sex workers. Together with male homosexuals, these high-risk groups  account for about half of all new HIV infections worldwide.

Globally, transgender women and injecting drug users are around 50 times more likely than the general population to contract HIV, while sex workers have a 14-fold higher chance of getting infected, according to WHO.

Hirnschall said “Progress is however uneven” and warned that failing to address the still sky-high HIV incidence among certain groups was putting the overall battle against the deadly disease at risk.

Promoting condom use, wide-spread voluntary HIV testing, treating at-risk individuals with antiretrovirals, voluntary male circumcision and needle exchange programs are among WHO’s recommendations for battling the disease.

HIV symptoms

I notice abstinence, the virtues of prudence and of honesty (informing your sex partner you are infected) are not among WHO’s recommendations. [Snark]

In fact, on page 3 of the International Planned Parenthood Federation’s (IPPF) guide for young people living with HIV, “Healthy, Happy and Hot,” the IPPF actually says that those with HIV have “the right” to not disclose their HIV status to their sex partners!

It appears that like the IPPF, the be-all and end-all of WHO is an active sex life — “Do As Thou Wilt” — which is the central principle of the Church of Satan.

Coming soon: Tax on how much you drive

VMT tax

Americans already are taxed on how much we drive. It’s called the gas tax.

But because of more fuel-efficient cars, we’re consuming less gas, which means ever-ravenous governments aren’t getting revenue from the gas tax as much as before.

So 19 states are “considering” imposing another tax on how much we drive, by calling it a different name —  the VMT or Vehicle Miles Traveled, a user tax that’ll tax you according to how many miles you’ve driven your vehicle.

Supposedly, if your state goes through with the VMT, it’ll replace the gas tax. Don’t count on it.  Even if a state replaces the gas tax with the VMT, there’s still the federal part of the gas tax.

Incredibly, there are thousands of “useful idiot” volunteers in Oregon who will soon have mileage meters installed in their cars.

Dan Mitchell of the libertarian think-tank, the Cato Institute, warns that if you let government install a GPS monitor in your car, you’ll also lose your privacy because the monitor will record not only your mileage but also where you go and when.

The Daily Sheeple suspects there’s also another motive:

This is part of the Agenda 21 lot to corral people in one place. It is to discourage people from living outside the city and commuting to work. It is a plan that will force many to rely on public transportation. Lots of people in a small area are far easier to control than people scattered about in wide open spaces.

Nancy Pelosi Warns SF Bishop Not to March for Traditional Marriage

Pelosi Warns SF Bishop Not to March for Traditional Marriage

June 16, 2014 By Stephen Frank 6 Comments

Democrats tell us that religion has no place in the public square, that religious values have no place in discussion of policies. Yet, the San Fran Nan maniacs still claim to believe in the First Amendment which gives us free speech and freedom of religion. The Left thinks IF your policies come from religious origins, you have no right to express them.

“In an astonishing challenge to traditional Catholic doctrine, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, nominally Catholic, has taken to telling San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone that he should not attend the National Organization for Marriage’s June 19 march on the Supreme Court in Washington D.C.

While Pelosi claims to be a Catholic, she has made it clear she openly opposes Catholics theology and Church leaders that publically speak about those values. Maybe Pelosi should stop promoting anti-freedom legislation, like ObamaCare.

Why does the Catholic Church still allow her in the doors?
San Fran Nan appears to be a self-loathing Catholic.

Pelosi Warns SF Bishop Not to March for Traditional Marriage
by William Bigelow, Breitbart CA, 6/15/14

In an astonishing challenge to traditional Catholic doctrine, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, nominally Catholic, has taken to telling San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone that he should not attend the National Organization for Marriage’s June 19 march on the Supreme Court in Washington D.C.

Cordileone is scheduled to be a featured speaker at the event, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, which is consistent with his championing of Proposition 8 in 2008. Cordileone helped raise $1.5 million for the initiative, which intended to ban same-sex marriage in the state. He once said, “The ultimate attack of the evil one is the attack on marriage.”

Pelosi, who called the event “venom masquerading as virtue,” wrote to Cordileone, “We share our love of the Catholic faith and our city of San Francisco,” adding that the event would feature some participants displaying “disdain and hate towards LGBT persons,” and asserting, “If someone is gay and is searching for the Lord and has good will, then who am I to judge him?”

The March for Marriage, which was initiated last year, features thousands of people standing up for “traditional marriage” walking from the U.S Capitol to the Supreme Court. Among the speakers are Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum.

Pelosi is not the only Democratic San Francisco politician sending Cordileone a letter decrying his participation in the march. Last week, San Francisco mayor Ed Lee and California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsome issued a joint letter to the bishop protesting his participation. In the letter, cited by the Chronicle‘s Carla Marinucci, they wrote: “We ask that you will reconsider your participation and join us in seeking to promote reconciliation rather than division and hatred …” They said the march was “organized by some of the nation’s most virulently anti-LGBT organizations and leaders.”

The National Organization of Marriage was also targeted by the federal government in the IRS scandal.

An online petition demanding that Cordileone cease and desist in his plans has been signed by roughly 20,000 people.

Cordileone is the head of the Subcommittee for the Promotion and Defense of Marriage for the U.S. Conference of Bishops. He has already referred to the March as “an important means to promote and defend marriage for the good of our culture, to pray for our federal and state governments, and to stand in solidarity with people of good will,” adding, “This is a critical time for marriage in our country, as marriage amendments are being struck down by federal courts and appeals of these decisions are being made.”

UN armored cars seen in Georgia, USA

UN trucksA man driving on a freeway coming out of Alabama in southern Georgia took this video of at least two flat-back trucks, each carrying two brand-new white armored cars bearing the letters “UN” in black.

One sharp-eyed reader on YouTube observed that the vehicles “appear to have M231 port firing weapon ports on them.”

The United States is a sovereign country, not under the UN’s jurisdiction. There can be NO legitimate reason why armored trucks of the United Nations should be on American soil, unless the UN vehicles had been manufactured here and are being transported by truck to a port for shipping overseas.

But the “Made in Alabama” website’s page on “Alabama auto family: A look at the models produced in the state” does not include armored trucks as a model that’s manufactured in Alabama, nor does it make mention of doing any manufacturing for the United Nations. When I ran a search for “armored vehicles” on the “Made in Alabama” website, the only thing that came up is an armored version of the Mercedes-Benz M-Class that looks nothing like the UN armored cars:

armored Mercedes-Benz

What I find perhaps even more interesting is the fact that the two trucks carrying the UN armored vehicles have no lettering on them indicating their company’s name. The trucks are also painted UN blue.

The Dam Beavers.

Folks I don’t know if this is true, but I do know it is funny as hell. If you need a good laugh to start the day please take 2 minutes to read.

———————————————————————————————–

This is an actual letter sent to a man named Ryan DeVries by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Quality, State of Pennsylvania . This guy’s response is hilarious, but read the State’s letter before you get to the response letter.
SUBJECT: DEQ File No.97-59-0023; T11N; R10W, Sec. 20; Lycoming County
Dear Mr. DeVries:
It has come to the attention of the Department of Environmental Quality that there has been recent unauthorized activity on the above referenced parcel of property. You have been certified as the legal landowner and/or contractor who did the following unauthorized activity:
Construction and maintenance of two wood debris dams across the outlet stream of Spring Pond.
A permit must be issued prior to the start of this type of activity.
A review of the Department’s files shows that no permits have been issued. Therefore, the Department has determined that this activity is in violation of Part 301, Inland Lakes and Streams, of the Natural Resource and Environmental Protection Act, Act 451 of the Public Acts of 1994, being sections 324.30101 to 324.30113 of the Pennsylvania Compiled Laws, annotated.!
The Department has been informed that one or both of the dams partially failed during a recent rain event, causing debris and flooding at downstream locations. We find that dams of this nature are inherently hazardous and cannot be permitted. The Department therefore orders you to cease and desist all activities at this location, and to restore the stream to a free-flow condition by removing all wood and brush forming the dams from the stream channel. All restoration work shall be completed no later than January 31, 2006.
Please notify this office when the restoration has been completed so that a follow-up site inspection may be scheduled by our staff.

Failure to comply with this request or any further unauthorized activity on the site may result in this case being referred for elevated enforcement action..
We anticipate and would appreciate your full cooperation in this matter. Please feel free to contact me at this office if you have any questions.
Sincerely,
David L. Price
District Representative and Water Management Division.

Here is the actual response sent back by Mr. DeVries:
Re: DEQ File No. 97-59-0023; T11N; R10W, Sec. 20; Lycoming County
Dear Mr. Price,
Your certified letter dated 12/17/02 has been handed to me to respond to. I am the legal landowner but not the Contractor at 2088 Dagget Lane , Trout Run, Pennsylvania .
A couple of beavers are in the (State unauthorized) process of constructing and maintaining two wood “debris” dams across the outlet stream of my Spring Pond. While I did not pay for, authorize, nor supervise their dam project, I think they would be highly offended that you call their skillful use of natures building materials “debris.” I would like to challenge your department to attempt to emulate their dam project any time and/or any place you choose. I believe I can safely state there is no way you could ever match their dam skills, their dam resourcefulness, their dam ingenuity, their dam persistence, their dam determination and/or their dam work ethic.
As to your request, I do not think the beavers are aware that they must first fill out a dam permit prior to the start of this type of dam activity.
My first dam question to you is:
(1) Are you trying to discriminate against my Spring Pond Beavers.
(2) Or do you require all beavers throughout this State to conform to said dam request?
If you are not discriminating against these particular beavers, through the Freedom of Information Act, I request completed copies of all those other applicable beaver dam permits that have been issued. Perhaps we will see if there really is a dam violation of Part 301, Inland Lakes and Streams, of the Natural Resource and Environmental Protection Act, Act 451 of the Public Acts of 1994, being sections 324.30101 to 324.30113 of the Pennsylvania Compiled Laws, annotated.
I have several concerns. My first concern is; aren’t the beavers entitled to legal representation? The Spring Pond Beavers are financially destitute and are unable to pay for said representation — so the State will have to provide them with a dam lawyer. The Department’s dam concern that either one or both of the dams failed during a recent rain event, causing flooding, is proof that this is a natural occurrence, which the Department is required to protect. In other words, we should leave the Spring Pond Beavers alone rather than harassing them and calling their dam names.
If you want the stream “restored” to a dam free-flow condition please contact the beavers — but if you are going to arrest them, they obviously did not pay any attention to your dam letter, they being unable to read English.
In my humble opinion, the Spring Pond Beavers have a right to build their unauthorized dams as long as the sky is blue, the grass is green and water flows downstream. They have more dam rights than I do to live and enjoy Spring Pond. If the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection lives up to its name, it should protect the natural resources (Beavers) and the environment (Beavers’ Dams).
So, as far as the beavers and I are concerned, this dam case can be referred for more elevated enforcement action right now. Why wait until 1/31/2006? The Spring Pond Beavers may be under the dam ice then and there will be no way for you or your dam staff to contact/harass them then.
In conclusion, I would like to bring to your attention to a real environmental quality, health, problem in the area. It is the bears! Bears are actually defecating in our woods. I definitely believe you should be persecuting the defecating bears and leave the beavers alone.
If you are going to investigate the beaver dam, watch your step! The bears are not careful where they dump!       

I guess they really do.

I guess they really do.

 

Being unable to comply with your dam request, and being unable to contact you on your dam answering machine, I am sending this response to your dam office.

THANK YOU.

Infowars analysis note: The official list ends above. What’s important to understand is that there are always members who will be attending, but who don’t want to be included in the list, due to laws such as 18 U.S. Code § 953, otherwise known as the Logan Act, which makes it a felony offense – punishable under federal law with imprisonment of up to three years – for any member of federal or state government to meet with members of a foreign government without the express authority and authorization of the president or congress.

Yesterday, Bilderberg put out a press release detailing the official talking points to be addressed at this year’s meeting. From our research, this is not their primary agenda, but usually one put out to appease the media:

Copenhagen, 26 May 2014 – The 62nd Bilderberg meeting is set to take place from 29 May until 1 June 2014 in Copenhagen, Denmark. A total of around 140 participants from 22 countries have confirmed their attendance. As ever, a diverse group of political leaders and experts from industry, finance, academia and the media have been invited. The list of participants is available on http://www.bilderbergmeetings.org

The key topics for discussion this year include:

• Is the economic recovery sustainable?
• Who will pay for the demographics?
• Does privacy exist?
• How special is the relationship in intelligence sharing?
• Big shifts in technology and jobs
• The future of democracy and the middle class trap
• China’s political and economic outlook
• The new architecture of the Middle East
• Ukraine
• What next for Europe?
• Current events

Founded in 1954, Bilderberg is an annual conference designed to foster dialogue between Europe and North America. Every year, between 120-150 political leaders and experts from industry, finance, academia and the media are invited to take part in the conference. About two thirds of the participants come from Europe and the rest from North America; approximately one third from politics and government and the rest from other fields.

The conference is a forum for informal discussions about major issues facing the world. The meetings are held under the Chatham House Rule, which states that participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity nor the affiliation of the speaker(s) nor of any other participant may be revealed.

Thanks to the private nature of the conference, the participants are not bound by the conventions of their office or by pre-agreed positions. As such, they can take time to listen, reflect and gather insights.

There is no desired outcome, no resolutions are proposed, no votes are taken, and no policy statements are issued.

Pope Francis endorses redistribution of wealth by the State

pope between POS & lurchPope Francis has a disturbing penchant to spout off in ways that lend support to the Left, which would explain why they’ve embraced him as one of their own.

The latest example is his widely-reported address of last Friday, May 9, 2014, to the United Nations, “Address of Pope Francis to the UN System Chief Executives Board for Coordination,” in which he seems to endorse the dream of every socialist: redistribution of wealth.

This is the section in his address which has drawn so much attention:

Today, in concrete terms, an awareness of the dignity of each of our brothers and sisters whose life is sacred and inviolable from conception to natural death must lead us to share with complete freedom the goods which God’s providence has placed in our hands, material goods but also intellectual and spiritual ones, and to give back generously and lavishly whatever we may have earlier unjustly refused to others.

The account of Jesus and Zacchaeus teaches us that above and beyond economic and social systems and theories, there will always be a need to promote generous, effective and practical openness to the needs of others. Jesus does not ask Zacchaeus to change jobs nor does he condemn his financial activity; he simply inspires him to put everything, freely yet immediately and indisputably, at the service of others.

Consequently, I do not hesitate to state, as did my predecessors (cf. JOHN PAUL II,Sollicitudo Rei Socialis, 42-43; Centesimus Annus, 43; BENEDICT XVI, Caritas in Veritate, 6; 24-40), that equitable economic and social progress can only be attained by joining scientific and technical abilities with an unfailing commitment to solidarity accompanied by a generous and disinterested spirit of gratuitousness at every level. A contribution to this equitable development will also be made both by international activity aimed at the integral human development of all the world’s peoples and by the legitimate redistribution of economic benefits by the State, as well as indispensable cooperation between the private sector and civil society.

Consequently, while encouraging you in your continuing efforts to coordinate the activity of the international agencies, which represents a service to all humanity, I urge you to work together in promoting a true, worldwide ethical mobilization which, beyond all differences of religious or political convictions, will spread and put into practice a shared ideal of fraternity and solidarity, especially with regard to the poorest and those most excluded.

equitable economic and social progress can only be attained by … the legitimate redistribution of economic benefits by the State

Really?

John Hayward of Human Events went to great pains and much mind-reading contortions to rationalize what Pope Francis really had said and what Pope Francis really means, that:

  • At the same time as Francis is calling for a wealth redistribution, he also calls for “an awareness of the dignity of each of our brothers and sisters whose life is sacred and inviolable from conception to natural death” — referring to abortion and euthanasia.
  • Francis calls for “a generous and disinterested spirit of gratuitousness at every level,” not just at the governmental level.
  • Francis’ idea of “legitimate” wealth redistribution is not what Hayward calls “a parasitic mega-government that enriches itself from the labor of honest citizens, and spends titanic amounts of money on endeavors that have nothing to do with alleviating desperate poverty.” [Really? How does Hayward know that?]
  • What Francis meant by the “poorest and those most excluded” who are deserving of charity is not what actually happens in America’s welfare state, wherein the ideology of “income inequality” has been appropriated “by arrogant leftists to claim the power to fine-tune middle-class salaries to meet their notion of ‘fairness.’” [Really? How does Hayward know that?]

This is the comment I wrote in response to Hayward:

I am a conservative Roman Catholic who loves my faith, and I am simply sick of this pope opening his big mouth time and again, necessitating conservative commentators like John Hayward to come to his rescue to “reinterpret” his words.

Mr. Hayward can rationalize what Pope Francis really said and meant until Hayward is blue in the face, but no explanation can ever remove these 9 damning words that the pope uttered: “the legitimate redistribution of economic benefits by the State,” with emphasis on the last 3 words “by the State.”

With those 9 words, Francis has endorsed not only the Left’s welfare state but Socialism and Communism. In so doing, Francis is intruding into politics. Thus, the IRS should remove from the U.S. Catholic Church its tax-exempt non-profit status.

Et tu, Francis. Have you joined Caesar, against our birthright of freedom, given to us by God?

Knowledgeable Catholics know Pope Francis was not speaking “ex cathedra,” i.e., with infallibility, because this address does not pertain to fundamental church beliefs, doctrines and dogma. But the world gives his words authority because of who he is.

This pope is oblivious to the record of what socialism and communism have wrought — of repression, abuse, torture, and murder in the hundreds of millions in the 20th century alone. (See The Black Book of Communism: Crimes, Terror, Repression.)

This pope does not speak for me.

And here’s the account of Jesus and Zecchaeus from Luke 19:1-10. Note that Jesus commended Zecchaeus on his voluntary charity-giving to the poor. Nowhere is there mention of the welfare state, or of government’s enforced “charity” via confiscatory taxes, or of the illegitimate or “legitimate redistribution of economic benefits by the state”:

And Jesus entered and passed through Jericho.

And, behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus, which was the chief among the publicans, and he was rich. And he sought to see Jesus who he was; and could not for the press, because he was little of stature. And he ran before, and climbed up into a sycomore tree to see him: for he was to pass that way.

And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for today I must abide at thy house.

And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully.

And when they saw it, they all murmured, saying, That he was gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner.

And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord: Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold.

And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham. For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.
