Public Private Partnership
Karen De Coster, mises.org, 5/22/2009: Obama to Government Motors: “Let’s Roll”
Perhaps the most disturbing casualties of government intervention are General Motors and Chrysler, two disgraced automakers that have gone from private ownership to the public trough virtually overnight….
… the attorney representing the [Chrysler bondholders], stated that his clients weren’t able to “withstand the enormous pressure and machinery of the US government.”
Effective “nationalization” of General Motors also.
…the guys from Wall Street – especially Goldman Sachs – who have taken over the Treasury Department are now taking over control of the domestic auto industry.
Feds may use this takeover to push “green” vehicles.
Cops Show Woman Who’s Boss
www.cbc.ca, 5/20/2009: Quebec woman gets ticket for refusing to hold handrail
A Quebec woman fined $420 for not holding an escalator handrail in a subway station is traumatized by the experience but vows to fight police …
www.montrealgazette.com, 5/20/2009: Métro user busted for refusing to hold handrail
Escalator handrails are a source of germs, Kosoian said. “They are dirty! How many people touch them every day? Thousands!”
“I cannot believe I was handcuffed – like a prisoner. Like I committed a crime.”
…Kosoian refused to immediately provide identification papers, she said, “because I did not do anything wrong.”…
Good for her. She disagreed with the rules and she had the nerve to talk back to the police. She lived in Eastern Europe so she knows. We better stop going along with everything or we’ll end up like an old communist country.
Can you imagine if the police started enforcing all the victimless laws and all the stupid rules that the different levels of government create? Everybody’s just going to follow them all, right? Because it’s “the law”? These laws are a trap for you, your family and your neighbours.
She’s doing us a favour by her example. Her attitude means there is hope that we won’t all be total slaves.
Toxins: We’ve been exposed to BPA for decades
www.dailymail.co.uk, 5/22/2009: ‘Gender-bending’ fear over plastic drinks bottles
…Experts have been concerned about the possible health effects of bisphenol A (BPA) – an everyday chemical used in many plastic food and drink containers and tins as well as clear baby bottles – which is officially classified as toxic in some countries.
A study found that participants who drank for a week from polycarbonate bottles showed a 69 per cent increase in their urine of BPA, which mimics the female sex hormone oestrogen….
…linked to birth defects, growth problems and an increased risk of heart disease and diabetes…
…Karin B. Michels, associate professor of epidemiology at HSPH and Harvard Medical School, said: ‘We found that drinking cold liquids from polycarbonate bottles for just one week increased urinary BPA levels by more than two-thirds.
‘If you heat those bottles, as is the case with baby bottles, we would expect the levels to be considerably higher.
‘This would be of concern since infants may be particularly susceptible to BPA’s hormone gland-disrupting potential.’
Canada banned the use of BPA in polycarbonate baby bottles last year and some manufacturers have voluntarily eliminated it from their products.

Detention and Torture
www.nytimes.com, 5/20/2009: Obama Is Said to Consider Preventive Detention Plan
…Human rights advocates are growing deeply uneasy with Mr. Obama’s stance on these issues, especially his recent move to block the release of photographs showing abuse of detainees, and his announcement that he is willing to try terrorism suspects in military commissions — a concept he criticized bitterly as a presidential candidate.
The two participants, outsiders who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the session was intended to be off the record, said they left the meeting dismayed.
They said Mr. Obama told them he was thinking about “the long game” — how to establish a legal system that would endure for future presidents….
“He was almost ruminating over the need for statutory change to the laws so that we can deal with individuals who we can’t charge and detain,” one participant said….
www.nytimes.com, 5/13/2009: Obama Reversal on Abuse Photos
President Obama said Wednesday that he would fight to prevent the release of photographs documenting abuse of prisoners in Iraq and Afghanistan by United States military personnel, reversing his position on the issue after commanders warned that the images could set off a deadly backlash against American troops.
…two categories: Abu Ghraib-style personal snapshots taken by soldiers; and photos taken by military criminal investigators documenting allegations of abuse, including autopsy photos of prisoners who died in custody.
…Anthony D. Romero, executive director of the A.C.L.U., said the decision to fight the release of the photos was a mistake. He said officials had described them as “worse than Abu Ghraib” and said their volume, more than 2,000 images, showed that “it is no longer tenable to blame abuse on a few bad apples. These were policies set at the highest level.”
Genetics and Transhumanism

Possible propaganda – using the theory of evolution to explain away male infertility and possibly engineered future changes to human beings:
…A researcher in human sex chromosomes said the male Y chromosome was dying and could run out within the next five million years.
…But Professor Jennifer Graves said men may follow the path of a type of rodent which still manages to reproduce despite not having the vital genes that make up the Y chromosome….
…She told medical students at the annual outreach public lecture at the Royal College of Surgeons (RCSI) in Ireland a second species of human beings could even be born in the future….
Globalists in Action
www.telegraph.co.uk, 5/22/2009: Eighteen ‘phantom’ MEPs will do no work for two years
European globalists continue to insist on ignoring the Irish referendum vote.
Eighteen “phantom” MEPs will be elected on full pay and perks next month despite not being able to start work for up to two years due to Ireland’s rejection of the Lisbon Treaty…
… Timothy Kirkhope, leader of the Conservatives in the European Parliament, said. “If the EU is to have democratic legitimacy, we should respect the decision of the Irish, and our Labour government should honour its manifesto commitment to hold a referendum…”
Globalist “Philanthropists”: Their Agenda is Secret
IrishCentral.com, 5/23/2009: Secret meeting of world’s richest people held in New York
Buffett, Gates, Rockefeller, Turner, Winfrey, Bloomberg, Soros in media-blackout conference…
Warren Buffet the most-insistent on his agenda for change….
Turner, founder of CNN, once donated $1B to the United Nations….
www.timesonline.co.uk, “The Sunday Times”, 5/24/2009: Billionaire club in bid to curb overpopulation
…The philanthropists … discussed joining forces to overcome political and religious obstacles to change.
…Taking their cue from Gates they agreed that overpopulation was a priority.
…This could result in a challenge to some Third World politicians who believe contraception and female education weaken traditional values.
Gates talked about “better reproductive healthcare”. Note the double talk. “Reproductive” means abortion. They’re having trouble convincing the third world that abortion is a good thing. Schools, water and malaria are mentioned also.
…a consensus emerged that they would back a strategy in which population growth would be tackled as a potentially disastrous environmental, social and industrial threat.
The reason for secrecy: because they didn’t want to be painted “as an alternative world government”.
2009 Bilderberg Meeting in Greece
Infowars.com, 5/16/2009: Bilderberg Wants Global Department Of Health, Global Treasury
According to Jim Tucker, the group discussed major steps towards world government, which also includes a global U.N. carbon tax and pressure on the Irish to vote the CORRECT WAY (the globalist way) on the Lisbon Treaty.
People need say NO to their agenda. Based on the article, it sounds like awareness and resistance has an effect on the Bilderberg group.
On the other hand, most of the mainstream media is still bought and paid for. What a disgrace they are. Of course they were represented at the meeting.

Another version of the list in German. Canadians in attendance according to the report:
