[No hace falta ser un conspiranoico para saber que el Grupo Bilderberg
es una asociación de muy malas personas que se juntan para ver cómo
hacernos sufrir más. Nunca es buena noticia saber que están celebrando o
van a celebrar alguna conferenc ia. Igual los vamos a vencer, pero
ufa... Mientras nosotros aquí tratamos de salir adelante, estos tipos se
juntan en Sitges para ver cómo nos aplastan la cabeza.]

De paso, algunos datos. La que empezó el Grupo fue la reina Juliana de
Holanda.

En esta oportunidad, según informa Olga Chetverikova de Global Research,
los buenos muchachos y muchachas se van a juntar para ver cómo hacen
para hundir a Europa, al menos, en un caos tan grave que ayude a imponer
un gobierno económico planetario, una especie de Ministerio Mundial de
Finanzas dependiente de las Naciones Unidas. Parece que la idea ya se
les había ocurrido en su reunión del año pasado (en Grecia). Pero lo que
el Grupo conoce como los "nacionalistas" de EEUU y la Unión Europea lo
torpedearon.

Plunged into Chaos: Europe on the Eve of the Bilderberg Conference

The Bilderberg group will convene in Sitges, Spain, a resort community
30 km from Barcelona, on June 4-7. As usual, the information is
supplied by James Tucker and Daniel Estulin who revealed that this
year the issues topping the agenda of the club's meeting will be the
global recession and the approaches to provoking such economic
breakdowns that can help justify the establishment of a full-scale
world economic governance.



Intending to prolong the global economic downturn for at least another
year, the Bilderberg group hopes to take advantage of the situation to
set up a “global ministry of finance” as a part of the UN. Though the
decision was actually made at the group's meeting in Greece last year,
according to Tucker the plan was torpedoed by US and European
“nationalists” (for the Bilderberg group, “nationalists” is a generic
term for all nationally-oriented forces espousing national sovereignty
and statehood).



All year since the last meeting, representatives of the global
executive management have been convincing the public across the world
to embrace a “new financial order”. The idea recurred in the
statements made by N. Sarkozy, G. Brown, and the freshly elected
European Council President H. Van Rompuy, but – against the backdrop
of a relatively harmless phase of the crisis - the activity remained
limited to psychological conditioning and no practical steps have been
taken. As Jacques Attali wrote quite reasonably in his After the
Crisis, Europe has no right to demand a reform of the global financial
architecture as long as it can't organize the institutions that would
meet its own needs.



The debt crisis in Greece that currently puts in jeopardy the entire
European financial system provides a pretext for drastic measures, and
both the crisis and the measures are vivid illustrations of the
strategy that employs chaos to reorder the existing arrangements. The
deliberately generated chaos is tightly controlled by financial
institutions, major banks, and hedge funds and serves as an efficient
mechanism of governance and social restructuring.



The financial attack against Greece promptly evolved into onslaught on
Euro and – as it became clear – the developments correlated marginally
with the structural shortcomings of the Greek economy. The intensity
of the crisis that momentarily posed a threat to the economic and even
political integrity of the EU cannot be explained solely by the
appetites of faceless financial players. There had to be more serious
reasons behind the situation, and to an extent the objectives pursued
by those who shaped it can be understood from the statements made by
G. Soros. He maintains that the EU owes its current difficulties to
the European (especially German) politicians' reluctance to move on,
that huge problems await Europe unless it starts developing, and that
a kind of a European Monetary Fund helping fight budget deficit must
be created. In other words, Europeans are forced to choose between the
collapse of the Eurozone and governance centralization.



Jacques Attali laid out a specific centralization plan. It is
suggested that the EU countries create their own institutions to
monitor the activities of financial operators. It is also proposed
that they should set up a European creditor of a new formation that –
while not being linked to Europe's central and investment banks or
governments - would guarantee assistance to viable local financial
institutions, buy into their assets, and extend loans under specific
terms. Attali further advocates the formation of a European ministry
of finance that would immediately be empowered to hand out loans from
the name of the EU, and the creation of a European Budget Fund with a
mandate to oversee the budgets of the countries whose cumulative dept
totals over 85% of the GDP. He warns that an even severer crisis
should be expected otherwise.



Under the US pressure, A. Merkel finally consented to tough measures
(purportedly, Sarkozy even threatened that France would revert to
national currency in case she held her own), and early last May EU
finance and economy ministers signed an agreement on the mechanisms of
budgetary stabilization in the Euro zone, which envisaged the
establishment of a Euro 60b safety pillow fund to urgently rescue
countries battling with their public finances and the allocation of
Euro 440b in guaranteed loans. The IMF also pledged Euro 250b in the
case of need. The money is meant for sovereign debt bailouts in the
Eurozone, a mission which – for the first time in its entire history –
the European central bank will also undertake. Steps facilitating
financial transactions were announced by central banks across the
world including the US Federal Reserve which will urgently inject US
dollars into the European Central Bank as well as into British and
Swiss banks.



The above can be regarded as the first phase of progress towards
centralized European monetary administration. It is unclear so far how
exactly the “grand architects” see the world financial governance and
what role they plan to give to existing financial institutions like
the IMF. The options on the table range from building totally new
institutions to – as, for example, suggested by Attali – using the IMF
as an authorized supranational regulation center run by a G-24 board.



Importantly, once again we are witnessing the creation of mechanisms
of centralized supranational control over national economies, and the
crisis acts as a catalyst for a guided fast transition to tighter
integration within the EU, which is necessary to build a close-knit
Western bloc.



The plan imposed on Europe by elite financial circles implies
countering the indebtedness problem with the help of new borrowings,
which will exacerbate rather than remedy the budget problem. According
to Eurostat data, in 2010 the Eurozone sovereign debt will grow from
77.7% to 83.6% of the GDP. Moreover, it is widely held in the expert
community that the indebtedness figures for Greece, Portugal, and a
number of other EU countries are unrealistically low and do not
reflect the actual proportions of the problem.



Experts from Lombard Odier, a Swiss bank, estimate the bulk of Greek
bad debt at 875% of its GDP, which means that to meet its obligations
the country would have to invest – without any foreseeable returns –
an amount exceeding its GDP by a factor of 8.75. The situations in
Poland and Slovenia are even more alarming – in their cases the debt
to GDP ratio is 15 and 11 respectively. The corresponding average over
the Eurozone is 4.34, and in the US – 5.



Leaving structural problems untouched, the mitigation measures are
paving the way for the supranational institutions advocated by
mondialist Attali. On May 21, the EU finance ministers adopted at a
meeting chaired by European Central Bank president Jean-Claude Trichet
and European Council President H. Van Rompuy the German plan of much
greater budgetary coordination including penalties for states that
break the EU budgetary rules. The sanctions will include suspending
the voting rights of repeat offenders, withholding the funding for
infrastructural development, etc. It was also proposed to subject
national budgets to EU screening prior to their being debated in
national legislatures. A report will be prepared by June 17 – notably,
the date of the EU summit – outlining a common Eurozone policy. Other,
yet more ambitious projects like full control over Eurozone national
budgets by a triumvirate comprising the European Commission, the
European central bank, and the Euro Group are also discussed.



The downsides of the rescue packages are the worst part of the
problem. Invoking the threat of financial collapse, the EU countries
serially introduced extremely unpopular austerity regimes with salary
and pension freezes for state employees, welfare cuts, increased
retirement ages, etc. Greece was the first but not the only country
affected.



The German government plans to cut spending by Euro 10b annually in
2011-2016. France abolished the annual pension for low-income
families. Under the IMF pressure, Spain is launching a comprehensive
reform including pension indexing freeze, pay reductions and
employment cuts in the state sector, the abolition of payments to
support families with recently born children, etc. Great Britain,
Italy, and others are following the lead.



The consequences of the measures are hard to gauge considering that
Europe is already facing serious poverty and unemployment problems
(the unemployment has reached 10% of the economically active
population and continues to grow, and at least 80 mln people are
currently below the poverty line).



Most likely, the shadow world government - the Bilderberg group – will
administer to the public the doze of social problems carefully
calculated to enable the elites “to offload troubled assets”, retain
control over the situation, and divert protests from the actual
sources of problems that trigger them.



 From Russia's perspective, the conclusion is obvious: any deepening of
its integration into the “free” Europe strengthens the financial and
informational control over Russia exercised by the global elites
seeking to strip it of the status of an independent geopolitical
player.
