Throughout my research I have often come across conflicts of interest that were so blatant, I nearly choked. Then after a while, I realized how common it is – that it has actually become the norm. Some of these instances are so glaring that it’s hard to believe how visible it is for anyone to see – if they look that is and how would they know to do so? They wouldn’t and that’s the reason this boldness works – who would expect that a Bilderberger – a member of the most secret and powerful organization in the world – is an advisory council member of Transparency International? It’s a joke right? Unfortunately, it’s not and most of the well funded and significant watchdog, human rights, philanthropy and general do good organizations are full of outrageous conflicts of interest like this. It certainly explains why they’ve been so incredibly ineffective doesn’t it?
If you’re not familiar with the legendary Bilderberg Conference, here’s a very short and to the point statement about why it’s ludicrous to have a Bilderberger involved in oversight or transparency.
There are many other sources of information on the Bilderbergers because of course, any independent investigator wants to know what the most powerful and influential people in the world are discussing. The people gathering information on this group must be independent because the mainstream media doesn’t cover this most news worthy organization. There have been leaked lists of attendees in the past and not surprisingly, several media publishers appear on the list.
This is a prime example of a hopelessly conflicted organization and it explains a lot:
POGO – Project on Government Oversight – One board member , David Burnham, was awarded a Rockefeller Foundation Fellowship. Another board member, Ryan Alexander, was a program officer for the Rockefeller Family Fund and of course one of the major foundations supporting this organization is the Rockefeller Family Fund. David Rockefeller is a famous Bilderberger.
The two top donor organizations under ‘Foundation Support’ are listed as ‘Anonymous’ – this is for the Project for Oversight! There are many more conflicts including the donor Foundations themselves who should appear on their ‘Investigations’ page rather than the donor page for example: The Ford Foundation which is CIA affiliated. This is well documented and here’s a good source of information on it:
On many of these Philanthropy and Humanitarian sites you inevitably come across Soros – the Open Society Foundation which is on this list for the POGO. Soros is a wealthy financier who supports organizations that ultimately serve his interests. He has been convicted of Insider Trading and here is more information on how he uses human rights organizations to his benefit:
Another name on this list I come across frequently in my research:
Carnegie Corporation of New York along with the Ploughshares Fund, which is a funder for the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. Confused yet? Unfortunately, it only gets worse. Looking up many of the other donor Foundations on this list, I discovered that many were funded by these same organizations. For example, The Connect U.S. Fund – on the website it says:
“The Connect U.S. Fund was created in 2004 and is supported by a donors’ collaborative which presently includes the Open Society Foundations, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, the Carnegie Corporation of New York, and the Ploughshares Fund.”
The Arca Foundation, funds the Center for Economic & Policy Research which is also funded by Open Society, Rockefeller Family Fund and the Rockefellers Brothers Fund. Starting to see a pattern? The president of another donor – Colombe Foundation – is also the director of the Ploughshares fund. Do you think they might have similar political interests? The Colombe Foundation, Ploughshares, Carnegie & Ford Foundation all fund the Arms Control Association.
On the subject of Arms, the Ford Foundation, Carnegie Corp of NY and the Rockefeller Foundation have all funded the RAND Corporation – a U.S. Army contractor. There’s much to say about this specialized ‘think tank’ but I’ll borrow a short line from their wiki page:
“Since the 1950s, the RAND has been instrumental in defining U.S. military strategy.”
Additional donors: William & Flora Hewlett Foundation and The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation both fund the ACA and the RAND Corporation. And yet another donor, the New-Land Foundation, funds the ACA. Pew Charitable Trusts funds the RAND Corporation and is funded by Foundation to Promote Open Society-Soros.
There are many more affiliations that I came across when looking into these foundations – I urge you to do this kind of research on any organization that you support in any way. Take a look at the board of directors and go from there. It’s amazing to me what a perfect example this is of how perverse things have become. POGO is an organization whose purpose is to expose the very problems that they embody.
It’s a recipe for corruption: An elite group of people using foundations and other so-called NGOs to influence government policy. This pattern is found everywhere and results in financial, political and corporate affiliations that create a shared agenda. This is how the bailouts happened and it is a sign of things to come. We don’t make our laws – they do. This elite group who is consulting not with us regarding future legislation but with other powerful people who have shared goals.
What’s it going to take for us to stop buying into this?
