Italian government gives 3,700% more aid to ‘migrants’ than its own disabled citizens

Have you wondered why the Left support and ally with radical Islam, including working actively to promote and facilitate the importation of Muslim “refugees” into Europe and the U.S.?

The explanation for that strange and unholy alliance goes beyond the adage,  “the enemy of my enemy is my friend”. As pointed out by Dr. Abdessamad Belhaj, a highly regarded scholar of Islam, the Left and Islam share affinities that are structural, not accidental:

  • For the Muslim migrants, the West is a source of economic goodies, including welfare.
  • For Western political elites, Muslim migrants are a means toward political power (via votes); a minimum-wage immigrant workforce with “an impulse” for consumerism, which is the opiate used by the state to control the masses; and globalization, which is why the elites denigrate and oppose nationalism, especially President Trump’s championing of America First and Make America Great Again.

See my posts, “Why the Left encourage the cancer of Muslim migrants” and “UN admits ‘refugees’ are ‘replacement migration’ for Europe and other low-fertility countries”.

Here’s yet another example and illustration of of the unholy alliance of the Left and Islam: Italy’s government gives 3,700% more welfare money to “migrants” than to its own disabled citizens.

Muslim migrants in Italy

Luca Sablone reports for il Giornale.it, January 11, 2019 (Google translation into English here), that each “migrant” is given about 20 Euros (U.S. $22.04) a day — €600 or $661.11 a month — whereas disabled Italian citizens get only 54 cents (€o.54 or $0.60) a day (€16.2o or $18 a month).

Note: By my calculation, “migrants” receive 3,700% more financial aid than disabled Italians.

There are about 3 million disabled people in Italy, 2 million of whom receive disability benefits or a pension. “In some cases, a monthly disability benefit of €1,000 does not allow us to lead a dignified life.”

According to the Jan. 11, 2019 edition of Libero, the government’s draft Budget Law included a Disability and Self-Reliance Fund, which allots €50 million for the year 2020, €200 million for 2021, and €300 million per year beginning 2022. Dividing this figure by Italy’s 3 million “non-ambulatory” disabled, that means the financial aid for every disabled person is 54 Euro-cents per day (€16.2 a month), which is insufficient to pay for even basic needs like transport or clothing.

Although Deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini, a Euroskeptic and member of the Northern League political party, reduced the welfare given to “migrants” from €35 to €21-22 a day, the gap between the financial aid given to “migrants” and that given to disabled Italians is still “truly absurd”.

Note: On 24 September 2018, Italy’s Council of Ministers approved the “Salvini Decree”, which contained a series of hardline measures, including the abolition of key forms of protection for migrants, making it easier for them to be deported; as well as the suspension of the refugee application process of migrants who are considered “socially dangerous” or who have been convicted of a crime. On September 5, 2019, Matteo Salvini stepped down as Deputy Prime Minister after announcing a motion of no-confidence against Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte. Political analysts see Salvini’s motion as a move to force a snap election where Salvini could become the next Prime Minister of Italy. (Wikipedia).

George Soros admits he’s impeded by Trump to turn U.S. socialist

A week ago, on Oct. 26, 2019, 89-year-old billionaire George Soros, who has spent his fortune promoting open borders and leftwing politicians, media, and organizations, said he has been impeded by opponents, including President Trump, in his lifelong quest to transform the United States into socialism, which he calls “open society”.

Soros said that in an interview on Michel Martin’s  All Things Considered on National Public Radio (NPR). Although NPR is funded by U.S. taxpayers, Soros’ Open Society Foundations, to which he had given more than $32 billion, is a financial supporter of NPR — as much as $1.8 million in 2011.

Between the election of President Trump and Britain’s ongoing debate over Brexit, Soros recognizes that populism is on the rise and that his brand of liberal democracy is faltering. He said:

“When I got involved in what I call political philanthropy some 40 years ago, the open society idea was on the ascendant — closed societies were opening up. And now, open societies are on the defensive and dictatorships are on the rise. I have to admit that the tide has turned against me, but I don’t think that I have failed. If you really have principles that you believe in, then you have to fight for them — win or lose.”

Soros said his priority now is fighting President Trump’s reelection — that’s some “promotion of democracy”!. Stopping short of endorsing her, Soros said Sen. Fauxcohontas Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), the favored candidate of the Demonrat Party elites, is “the clear-cut person to beat.”

Penny Starr of Breitbart points out that NPR portrays Soros as a benign philanthropist who only wants to “promote democracy” in some 120 countries across the world. That “promotion of democracy” included a $25,100 donation to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign.

Suggesting that any criticism of Soros is motivated by rank anti-Semitism, never mind the fact that Soros had admitted helping Nazis to confiscate property from Jews, NPR states that “Soros, who is Jewish and a survivor of the Nazi occupation of Hungary, has also been a frequent target of conspiracy theorists, white nationalists and neo-Nazis.”

Here is the 1998 60 Minutes interview that YouTube repeatedly took down, in which Soros admitted he had helped Nazis against Jews. Below is my transcription:

Steve Croft (“60 Minutes” interviewer: “My understanding is that you went out with this [Nazi] protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted godson…and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews.”

Soros, knodding his head in the affirmative: “Yes.”

Croft: “That sounds like an experience that would send lots of people to the psychiatric couch for many, many years. Was it difficult?”

Soros, shaking his head: “No. Not at all, not at all.”

Democrats are now the party of the super-rich; Republicans, party of workers

A new study by the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) confirms what some of us already know about the partisan nature of the class-division manifested in the 2016 election:

The Democratic Party is now the party of the very rich, whereas the Republican Party of Donald Trump has become the party of working Americans.

The Wall Street Journal article on this, “Democrats and Republicans Aren’t Just Divided. They Live in Different Worlds,” by Aaron Zitner and Dante Chinni, is behind a paywall. The article’s summary:

America’s political polarization is almost complete. Its two main political parties increasingly represent two different economies. And they barely overlap.

Democrats can be found in educated cities and suburbs where professional jobs are plentiful. Republicans live in working-class and rural communities, home to agriculture and basic manufacturing.

The WSJ uses the following indicators as measurements of socio-economic class:

  1. Real GDP (the value of goods and services produced) of a congressional district.
  2. Median household income of a congressional district.
  3. Type of employment.
  4. Education

By those measures, it is clear that in just ten years, from 2008 to 2018, Democratic voters have become not just the rich, but the super-rich, whereas Republican voters are overwhelmingly middle-class and the working poor.

Contrary to the media’s malicious stereotype, even in 2008, the GOP was not the party of the super-rich: The party won no congressional districts with GDPs of more than $62 billion. In contrast, the Democratic Party was already trending toward being a party of the super-rich, having won congressional districts with GDPs of $70 billion to $90 billion or more.

Democrats, the Party of the Rich

In 2008, the Democratic Party was already trending to being a party of the rich. Ten years later, the transformation was complete:

  1. Whereas in 2008, the Democrat Party pulled most of their votes from congressional districts with some of the lowest GDP, by 2018, Democrats now largely represent voters who live in districts with the highest GDP, including GDP of $90 billion or more.
  2. Whereas in 2008, the median household income of Democrat congressional districts was about $52,000, by 2017, that median household income had jumped 17% to about $62,000. That of Republican voters, however, barely changed.
  3. Type of employment:
    1. Democrats represent districts with the biggest clusters of high-paying professional jobs, including the hi-tech hubs around Silicon Valley and Boston:
      • Between 2008 and 2018, Democrats increased their already majority share of jobs in finance and insurance from 61% to 64.3%.
      • Between 2008 and 2018, Democrats increased their already majority share of jobs in digital and professional industries from 63.7% to 71.1%. Nearly three-quarters of digital and professional jobs are now in Democratic districts.
    2. Between 2008 and 2018, Democrats decreased their representation in congressional districts with lower-paying agricultural and mining jobs, from 46.1% to 39.5%, and of low-skill manufacturing jobs from a majority of 53.8% to 43.6%.
  4. Education: Between 2008 and 2017, Democrats increased their share of adults with college degrees from about 27% to about 34.5%.

(B) Republicans, the Party of the Middle Class and Working Poor

Already, in 2008, the GOP was not favored by the super-rich. Ten years later, by 2018, the GOP’s transformation into a party of America’s middle-class and working poor was complete.

  1. Whereas in 2008, the GOP had a modicum of support in congressional districts with GDPs of $60-68 billion, by 2018, the GOP had lost all congressional districts with GDPs above $62 billion. Instead, the vast majority of GOP’s congressional districts had lower GDPs of $22-40 billion.
  2. In 2008, the median household income of Republican congressional districts was about $51,000. After ten years, by 2018, Republican media household income had barely increased, to about $53,000.
  3. Type of employment:
    1. Between 2008 and 2018, Republicans decreased their already minority shares of high-paying jobs in finance and insurance from 39% to 35.7%, and of jobs in digital and professional industries from 36.3% to 28.9%.
    2. In contrast, between 2008 and 2018, the GOP of Donald Trump became the party of honest workers in lower-paying jobs, increasing their share of jobs in agriculture and mining from 53.9% to 60.5%, and in basic manufacturing from 46.2% to 56.4%.
  4. Education: Between 2008 and 2017, Republicans barely increased their share of adults with college degrees from about 25% to 27%.

The WSJ concludes, quoting Roger Johnson, president of the National Farmers Union:

“When folks have less in common with one another, it’s hard to expect that they’re going to see the problem the same way, let alone recognize that a problem exists.”

John Binder of Breitbart explains the connection between the Democratic Party and globalism, and of the geographical coast-vs.-inland divide in the 2016 election:

Democrats represent the overwhelming majority of professional, high-paying industries that are not threatened by free trade and foreign imports — including workers in the financial, insurance, and tech industries.

Oppositely, Republicans increasingly represent workers in the agriculture industry, the mining industry, and low-skilled manufacturing industry — sectors that have been readily gutted because of global free trade and dumping of foreign imports in the American economy.

The Democrats’ voter base of the wealthiest billionaires in the country or professional white-collar employees who work in fields unthreatened by free trade can explain the party’s shift toward a globalist free trade agenda that seeks multilateral trade negotiations and the elimination of all tariffs.

The vast majority of 2020 Democrats running for president have said they would lift the job-creating tariffs that President Donald Trump has placed on foreign steel and aluminum imports.

Meanwhile, Republican voters — the majority of whose jobs are threatened by free trade, as the research notes — have become the most supportive demographic group of tariffs on foreign imports and an economic nationalist agenda that reduces foreign competition in the labor market and American economy.

Of course, regionally, the Democrat base consists nearly exclusively of top income earners and rich executives who live in metropolitan areas and major cities along the coasts.

In the 2016 election, failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton won the vast majority of high-income coastal congressional districts in the West Coast and the Northeast.

Trump, who decisively won the election, took home electoral college votes from the heartland of the U.S., winning states like Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio, and West Virginia, the very communities that had been devastated by the Washington, DC, free trade apparatus of the last three decades.

Antifa is planning a false-flag killing of leftists to remove President Trump

Yesterday, October 20, 2019, Mike Adams reports for Natural News that Antifa, the domestic terrorists, are planning a false-flag event in which Antifa operatives dressed as Trump supporters will “slaughter” a large number of Antifas. In so doing, Antifa hopes the false-flag event will unleash “nationwide political, civil and financial chaos” that the globalists will use to remove President Trump from power or, alternately, collapse the United States if Trump survives.

Adams says that his analysis “is derived from multiple personal interviews, eyewitness accounts, media sources (cited below) and informed familiarity with the history of the communist playbook from which these events are unfolding.”

Below is Adams’ analysis:

  • A sudden increase in the number of paid Antifa terrorists is now being observed in multiple cities across the United States.
  • The increased recruitment of Antifa mobs coincides with a coordinated media campaign to incite mass violence against Trump supporters and the President himself.
  • Deep state operatives such as James Clapper and John Brennan — who masterminded the criminal plot to undermine democracy and overrule the 2016 election — are now “lawyering up” as Bill Barr’s DOJ actions rapidly approach. This speaks to the desperation and urgency of the deep state to initiate mass chaos within weeks.
  • To achieve their goals of a political coup, the unhinged, lawless Left needs a “spark” event to pull the trigger and flip Antifa masses into an enraged, violent mob that will unleash bloodshed on the streets of America.
  • That “spark” event is likely to consist of a massive staged (theatrical) false flag event where high-level Antifa operatives dress up as patriot Trump supporters and slaughter a large number of Antifa protesters. (Charlottesville 2.0)
  • CNN, as usual, will be tipped off to the upcoming false flag shooting to make sure CNN’s cameras capture the event and all its blood and gore. Trump will be blamed for the mass death, and the event will be exploited by the treasonous fake news media to simultaneously demand the arrest or removal of Trump and the immediate nullification of the United States Constitution and its Second Amendment.
  • As this is taking place, globalist financial operators will wage a sell-off war of U.S. currency and U.S. debt in a desperate effort to crash the U.S. banking system, sacrificing New York banks as unavoidable casualties in the war to eliminate Trump and maintain globalist control over not just the United States, but all countries now facing a populist uprising.

Are We Being “Auto-Enrolled” into the Mark of the Beast?

Revelation 13:14 – 13:18

14  And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live.

15  And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

16  And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:

17  And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

18  Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six.

This piece does not aim to provide certainty of conclusion(s), but food for thought.  Over time, as one observes seemingly unrelated or spontaneous developments, a pattern can become discernable.  This writer is “discerning” that we may slowly be being corralled into a “Mark of the Beast” regime – not necessarily by force, as many assume – but through a form of “auto-enrollment” by means of that corralling. Many have opined that the “Mark” will manifest itself in the form of microchips implanted underneath the skin – whether voluntarily using deception, or by force – there’s even a movie about this titled Rumors of Wars. And that may well occur.  But …

Pope Francis says we should obey the United Nations

Pope Francis conceals the cross to not offend Jewish rabbis

On September 10, 2019, while jetting from Madagascar to Rome, Pope Francis gave an in-flight press conference in which he said:

“I would like to repeat the doctrine of the Church, that international organizations, when we understand we give them the ability to judge internationally. We think for example to the international court of AJA, and many times also the United Nations, when they speak. If we are a humanity we should obey. It is true that things do not always seem right for all humanity, they are right for our pockets, but you should obey international institutions, the United Nations was created for this.”

The new face of fascism: 181 CEOs say profits & shareholders no longer their main concerns

In America today, privately-owned businesses are no longer motivated by profit and service. Instead, businesses have become an arm of the Democrat Party by discriminating against conservatives and promoting the Left’s agenda — of abortion, climate change, gun control, illegal “immigration”, LGBTs, etc.

See, for example:

On August 19, 2019, Business Roundtable — a group of 181 chief executive officers (CEOs) from major U.S. corporations — formalized this de facto trend by issuing a statement redefining the “purpose of a corporation”. The signatories include:

  • Mary Barra, 57, chair/CEO of General Motors.
  • Jeff Bezos, 55, founder/president/CEO of Amazon.com; owner of Washington Post.
  • Tim Cook, 58, openly “gay” CEO of Apple Inc.
  • Jamie Dimon, 63, chairman/CEO of JPMorgan Chase & Co. and chairman of Business Roundtable.
  • Brian Moynihan, 59, chairman/CEO of Bank of America.
  • Dennis A. Muilenburg, 55, president/chairman/CEO of Boeing.

CNBC‘s Maggie Fitzgerald reports that gone is the age-old notion that corporations function first and formest to serve their shareholders and maximize profits. Rather, “investing in employees, delivering value to customers, dealing ethically with suppliers and supporting outside communities are now at the forefront of American business goals.”

Business Roundtable chairman Jamie Dimon piously said in a press release: “The American dream is alive, but fraying. Major employers are investing in their workers and communities because they know it is the only way to be successful over the long term. These modernized principles reflect the business community’s unwavering commitment to continue to push for an economy that serves all Americans.”

Here is Business Roundtable’s Statement on the Purpose of a Corporation:

Americans deserve an economy that allows each person to succeed through hard work and creativity and to lead a life of meaning and dignity. We believe the free-market system is the best means of generating good jobs, a strong and sustainable economy, innovation, a healthy environment and economic opportunity for all.

Businesses play a vital role in the economy by creating jobs, fostering innovation and providing essential goods and services. Businesses make and sell consumer products; manufacture equipment and vehicles; support the national defense; grow and produce food; provide health care; generate and deliver energy; and offer financial, communications and other services that underpin economic growth.

While each of our individual companies serves its own corporate purpose, we share a fundamental commitment to all of our stakeholders. We commit to:

  • Delivering value to our customers. We will further the tradition of American companies leading the way in meeting or exceeding customer expectations.
  • Investing in our employees. This starts with compensating them fairly and providing important benefits. It also includes supporting them through training and education that help develop new skills for a rapidly changing world. We foster diversity and inclusion, dignity and respect.
  • Dealing fairly and ethically with our suppliers. We are dedicated to serving as good partners to the other companies, large and small, that help us meet our missions.
  • Supporting the communities in which we work. We respect the people in our communities and protect the environment by embracing sustainable practices across our businesses.
  • Generating long-term value for shareholders, who provide the capital that allows companies to invest, grow and innovate. We are committed to transparency and effective engagement with shareholders.

Each of our stakeholders is essential. We commit to deliver value to all of them, for the future success of our companies, our communities and our country.

As we have seen in the policies and practices of Chase Bank, Bank of America, and countless others, the new objectives that now drive these corporations — those of “investing in employees” and “supporting outside communities” — mean, in practice, support for the Left’s agenda, as well as discriminatory policies against conservatives and Christians.

Piers Morgan: The Left have become unbearable, and are fueling populism across the world

Piers Morgan, 54, is an English journalist, broadcaster and TV personality.

I was no fan of Morgan. He was especially loathsome when he hosted Piers Morgan Live on CNN from 2011 to 2014, after which he returned to the UK.

On the Ben Shapiro Show last Sunday, August 18, 2019, Morgan launched into a stinging critique of the contemporary Left which had gone viral on Twitter, which just goes to show even a self-identified, pro-gun control liberal like Piers Morgan has had enough with so-called “liberals”.

Morgan said (beginning at the 8:26 mark):

“I think a lot of people who should be impartial journalists and masquerade as impartial journalists are now drifting toward being celebrities. And right now in America, in Trump’s America, the only way to be a celebrated journalist is predominantly to be a liberal, Trump-hating journalist, and that’s where it gets dangerous.

When I look at CNN for example, when I was there, the standards and practices around impartiality were extremely, extremely rigorously enforced. You could not remotely be seen to…partial politically. Now I look at CNN, I just see open sneering at Trump 24/7…. Things have changed: when I was there, you couldn’t do that, and I think that’s problematic. America needs CNN to be impartial. You know you have MSNBC on the left, you have Fox on the right, people have always understood that. If CNN itself becomes partial and partisan, I find that a big problem.

I find it a problem some of their reporters want to be big stars. You know anchors, they’re gonna be stars because they’re anchoring. When you’re a White House reporter or correspondent, you really should be doing the late-night chat shows? I don’t think so. So I think that there’s a line there which is getting crossed more and more, which I think is a problem for American people and their ability to cut through all this and get to the truth….

I have never known it like it is now, and I think it’s being massively exacerbated by social media…. It feels like we’ve gone back 2,000 years and we’re back into tribes. You have it with Trump here in America where it’s just blind. You have to be in one tribe or the other. You’re not allowed actually to say well, on the one hand he’s done good things here, here, here, on the other hand I don’t like what he’s doing here. It’s everything about this man, everything he does and says, every time he breaks wind, it offends me. Or I love him and everything he does is fantastic even when Trump does something ridiculous….

The most important thing is to maintain the ability to have a democratic debate with people, and to sit with people that you fundamentally don’t agree with, and to listen to things you find fundamentally offensive, but you actually respect someone’s right to think differently to you….

It’s the inability to have a debate without wanting to cancel people, to wrech their lives, to make them lose their jobs…. [Referring to universities in the UK and Berkeley, CA de-platforming speakers, i.e., not allowing invited speakers to speak] What is the point of being at university if you’re not going there to be challenged and to have your own views challenged….

(41:40) The self-righteousness of people that lose elections or referendums [referring to the Brexit referendum] … they say ‘No, you’re too stupid, no. Actually we have to do this all over again, we should ignore the result of this election because I know more than you, I’m more intelligent than you, you’re stupid people. That’s where we’ve got to, and if that is accepted, where every result is simply declared null and void and Liberals, let’s be honest, get what they want, democracy dies….”

Shapiro then asks Morgan if Brexit and President Trump are part of generalized phenomenon of populism in other countries in Europe as well, e.g., Italy, of a resistance to a “generalized elite” — “sneering…people who want to control your life from top down”. Morgan said [42:31 mark]:

Populism is rising because Liberals have become unbearable, and I speak as a Liberal, okay. In my core, I’m probably more liberal than not although fundamentally I see myself as a journalist and I’d like to see both sides of all this and I can argue both. But Liberals have become utterly, pathetically illiberal, and it’s a massive problem. What’s the point in calling yourself a Liberal if you don’t allow anyone else to have a different view? You know this snowflake culture that we operate in, the victimhood culture, the ‘everybody has to think a certain way, behave a certain way, everyone has to have a bleeding heart and tell you 20 things that are wrong with them’. I just think it’s all completely skewed to an environment where everyone’s offended by everything, and no one’s allowed to say a joke….

So … suddenly where are we? The Liberals get what they want, which is a humorless void where nothing happens, where no one dare do anything or laugh about anything or behave in any way that doesn’t suit their rigid way of leading a life. No, thanks.

So what’s happening around the world? Populism is rising because people are fed up with the PC culture, they’re fed up with snowflake [inaudible], they’re fed up with everyone being offended by everything, and they’re gravitating to forceful personalities…. I don’t agree with all of it, but I understand why the Liberals, my side if you like, are getting it so horribly wrong. They just want to tell people not just how to lead their lives, but if you don’t lead it the way I tell you to. It’s a kind of version of fascism: You don’t live the life the way I’m telling you to, then I’m gonna ruin your life. I’m gonna scream abuse at you, I’m gonna get you fired from your job, I’m gonna get you hounded by your family and friends. I’m gonna make you the most disgusting human in the world, because he said a joke ten years ago.

That’s the attitude we’re operating in. It takes forceful personalities to rise above it. Donald Trump rose up and went like Godzilla: ‘Okay, you want to fight? I’m here!’ And guess what, millions of people in Middle America went, ‘That’s our guy! That’s our guy, he’s the one that’s gonna help us.’ Same thing happening across Europe.”

And how will the Left react to Morgan’s critique? To quote two commenters on YouTube:

CNN’s headline on Monday reads: “Alt-Right Piers Morgan Sits Down with White Supremacist Ben Shapiro and Attacks American Journalism in Hate Fueled Tirade.”

Hypocrisy on steroids: Global elite take private jets & super-yachts to Google Climate Summit

The hypocrisy of so-called environmentalist elites is limitless.

In January 2019, international financial and political elites took some 1,500 fuel-guzzling, CO2-spewing private jets to Davos, Switzerland for the annual World Economic Forum on climate change being the greatest threat to the global economy. Davos, a small town in the Swiss Alps, is an easy taxi ride from a host of commercial airports.

The hypocrites did it again, for the just concluded 3-day Google Summer Camp on climate change at the posh, 5-star Verdura Resort on the Sicilian coast in Sciacca, Italy, where rooms start at $903 a night.

Google co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin invited to the top-secret gathering, costing some $20 million, a who’s who of A-list names, including (Page Six; Forbes):

The hypocrites arrived by private jets and yachts.

Among the yachts moored off the beach at Verdura Resort were Diller and Von Furstenberg’s $70 million EOS, Geffen’s $400 million super-yacht Rising Sun, Hart’s $275 million super-yacht Ulysees, Google co-founder Eric Schmidt’s $150 million super-yacht Infinity and its support vessel Intrepid, and Vetter’s Aquarius.

According to Italian press reports, the attendees arrived in 114 private jets.

Page Six reports that the New York Post “crunched the numbers and found that 114 flights from Los Angeles to Palermo, Italy, where guests landed, would spew an estimated 100,000 kilograms [220.46 lbs.] of CO2 into the air.”

Update:

Other attendees of the Google Hypocrite Summer Camp on climate change are (Daily Mail):

  • Hollyweirdo actors Orlando Bloom, George Clooney, Sacha Baron Cohen, Bradley Cooper, Tom Cruise, Woody Harrelson, Matthew McConaughey, Lars Ulrich; talent manager Guy Oseary.
  • Microsoft founder Bill Gates.
  • Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.
  • Christine Lagarde, President of the European Central Bank
  • Super-model Naomi Campbell
  • Pop singers Bono, Nick Jonas and wife Priyanka Chopra, John Legend, Chris Martin, Harry Styles.
  • UK fashion designer Stella McCartney.
  • CBS morning talk show’s Gayle King.
  • Google’s VP of engineering Benjamin Treynor Sloss with his wife Christine.
  • Italian restaurateur Massimo Bottura

List of attendees at secretive Bohemian Grove

Bohemian Grove is a 2,700-acre campground in Monte Rio in northern California, belonging to the Bohemian Club — a private San Francisco-based men’s club. In mid-July each year, Bohemian Grove hosts a more than two-week encampment of some of the most prominent men in the world, including U.S. presidents and politicians. Only active members of the Club and their guests may visit the Grove.

President Richard Nixon said in his private presidential tapes:

“The Bohemian Grove that I attend from time to time . . . is the most faggy goddamn thing you could ever imagine . . . it’s just terrible.”

The mid-summer encampment includes a ritual, first begun in 1881, called “Cremation of Care” in front of a 30-foot owl statue that symbolizes wisdom but which Alex Jones identified as Moloch. For many years, a recording of the voice of Bohemian Club member Walter Cronkite was used as the voice of The Owl during the ceremony. (See also “One-world-government Walter Cronkite: ‘I’m glad to sit at the right hand of Satan’”)

Sleeping quarters or “camps” are scattered throughout the grove, of which it is reported there were a total of 118 as of 2007. These camps, which are frequently patrilineal, are the principal means through which high-level business and political contacts and friendships are formed. (Wikipedia)

It is said that Mandalay camp is the camp “for international relations and consists of more than a few members offically or otherwise connected to foreign policy and the CIA. Mandalay is the only camp the average visitor cannot just walk into; an appointment or formal invitation is necessary.”

The names of Bohemian Grove attendees are not made public.

In July 2008, Wikileaks published the 2008 Bohemian Grove Guest List. Now, thanks to Crazy Days and Nights (CDAN), we have an updated list for 2018.

Crazy Days and Nights‘ blogger, Ent Lawyer (Ent=Entertainment), has a track record of accuracy. The Daily Beast describes Ent Lawyer as:

“. . . calling out many of Hollywood’s now-ostracized sexually misbehaving elite, sometimes years in advance of the mainstream media.

‘If you had been reading @entylawyer, you’d have known about Matt Lauer. And Harvey [Weinstein]. And Kevin Spacey. Just saying,’ tweeted New York professional Sara Zucker. Or as investigative journalist Mark Ebner (one of only 20 people who knows the blogger’s real-life identity) observes, ‘Enty Lawyer is like the anti-Perez Hilton. In my opinion, that’s what makes him so impressive, is that no one knows who he is, and he’s being proven right again and again. That’s like legendary shit.’”

On July 21, 2019, CDAN published a composite list of 2,925 Bohemian Grove attendees in 2008 and 2018. CDAN obtained the names of the 2018 attendees from photos sent by an unnamed source. The composite list is not a complete list of 2018 attendees. Ent Lawyer notes that “Some names are missing, and some were illegible because of the photos taken.”

Below is a screenshot of page one of the 60-page list on CDAN:

You can also see the list in text format, here (h/t codyave).
