Transnational Progressivism and Corporatism: archive

To current file <<<

The true aim of COP15:

The Daily Bell traces the narratives and draws some powerful conclusions what the progressive oligarchy is up to. Global control is powered by 3 narratives: scarcity of strategic minerals, oil, water, food; conflict and wars for their control; rationalize the Muslim ethos standing in the way of the world order. This is in effect what the Unholy Alliance bring up for their protests (Iraq was about oil, and Islam is under attack). The general aim of COP15 was reinforcing the story and in particular to extend Kyoto carbon offset trade. Mission accomplished.

Right Side News: "Copenhagen Had Three Levels of Control?", by The Daily Bell

(...) We agree with this article, but we would like to add to it. One has to look even deeper in our opinion. If one is to properly analyze the dominant social themes that the power elite injects into civil discourse, one has to mine the meme and keep mining. (...) >>>

Parallel to COP15, the Copenhagen Climate Conclave another heist to the tune of potentially $700 bn is already in the works - the global Financial Transactions Tax (FTT) or the "Robin Hood Tax" also referred to as "Wall Street helping Main Street" tax.

a: "Secret Plan to Pass a Global Tax", by Cliff Kincaid

(...) "The global anger against the bankers; the huge pressure on rich country budgets; the need for money in 2010 to rescue the MDGs (Millennium Development Goals) and from failure; to protect poor countries from the economic crisis; and the need to come up with money for climate change to unlock a global deal. All combine to make a very strong political backdrop" for this heist. (...) >>>

Obama may submit to ICC - Substituting Westphalia for the New World Order ...

WSJ: "Prosecuting American 'War Crimes'- The International Criminal Court claims jurisdiction over U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan" - Hap Tip: GateWayPundit - assigned reading: comment #16

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton expressed "great regret" in August that the U.S. is not a signatory to the International Criminal Court (ICC). This has fueled speculation that the Obama administration may reverse another Bush policy and sign up for what could lead to the trial of Americans for war crimes in The Hague.

The ICC's chief prosecutor, though, has no intention of waiting for Washington to submit to the court's authority. Luis Moreno Ocampo says he already has jurisdiction—at least with respect to Afghanistan. (...) >>>

Get this from the robber barons: not only are we to pay climate debt to the third world for 200 years of industrial revolution, we are also to compensate OPEC for loss of revenue now we're going green, itself goverment sponsored projects! What a racket!!!

Yid with Lid: "OPEC Sets World Record for Chutzpah"

(...) Saudi Arabia is gaining support from the Organization for the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) for its appeals to secure compensation for oil producing countries, as developed countries move away from oil towards greener energy sources.

Abdalla Salem el-Badri Secretary-General of OPEC said in an interview with The Times that he would support Saudi's claims for compensation if talks at next month's United Nations Climate Change Conference in the Danish capital, Copenhagen, end with commitments to reduce oil consumption in developed countries.

Spiegel: "How the UN's Climate Advocate Wants to Save the World"

Achim Steiner heads up the UN Environment Program, a traditionally weak agency with an annual budget of just 200 million dollars. But Steiner is doing his best to transform the position into a soapbox for the environment -- and is having some success. (...) Steiner talked himself into a rage. "They are still thinking in linear fashion," he said. "For them, the primacy of CO2 reduction is still nothing but a nuisance."


- Caption: Image by mgrenner57 via Flickr: Achim Steiner (left) and Juan Somavia, Director-General of the International Labor Organization (ILO) (right) -

Steiner is one of the leaders of a new current in the global environmental movement that is no longer willing to be fobbed off with small-scale conservation projects, green showpiece projects and lip service to sustainability. He wants to rebuild the system, force the perpetrators to discharge their duties and finally see action. "We must penetrate into the heart of the financial world," he said. "Things will be looking grim for mankind if it doesn't become green." (...) >>>

Der Spiegel: "Obama Has Failed the World on Climate Change"

US President Barack Obama came to office promising hope and change. But on climate change, he has followed in the footsteps of his predecessor, George W. Bush. Now, should the climate summit in Copenhagen fail, the blame will lie squarely with Obama. (...) "Forget the climate" seems to have been Bush's unofficial motto. (...) few people expected that Barack Obama, of all people, would continue his predecessor's climate change plan. When he took office at the beginning of 2009, it was clear that the success of the UN Climate Change Summit in Copenhagen in December depended almost entirely on the US -- that America needed to take a clear leadership role on a problem that could shake civilization to its very core.

Examiner: "Obama to surrender US sovereignty at UN global warming conference"

Not content with his humiliation at Copenhagen, Denmark this past September, President Obama will be traveling there again in December to attend the UN COP15 Climate Change Conference. This agreement would commit the United States to punitive and expensive greenhouse gas regulations dictated by the United Nations without recourse.

COP stands for "Conference of the Parties" and the December Copenhagen conference will be the 15th under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), hence COP15. According to their website, it will be one of the largest conferences ever held outside the New York or Geneva headquarters, with an anticipated attendance of over 10,000 people, including governmental representatives from 189 countries, industry groups, and other non-governmental organizations.

The theme of the December 7 - 18 conference is "Hope," so perhaps Mr. Obama will have more luck this time. (...) >>>

Reuters: "Global banking body may be needed-FSA"

A global body with legal powers may be needed over time to enforce the world's new financial rules, the Financial Services Authority (FSA) said on Wednesday. The FSA's newly appointed and first director of international affairs, Verena Ross, said the Financial Stability Board (FSB) was key to ensuring all gaps in regulation between securities, insurance and banking sectors were plugged.

Formerly known as the Financial Stability Forum, the FSB was expanded in April to include central bankers and finance ministry and regulatory officials from all Group of 20 (G20) countries. The G20 has asked the body, chaired by Bank of Italy Governor Mario Draghi, to coordinate global efforts to introduce new financial rules in light of the sector's worst crisis in 70 years. (...) >>>

North America merger re-emerges ...

WND: "PREMEDITATED MERGER - Obama 'clones' Bush in killing sovereignty - You thought plan was dead, but Democrat brings it back"

President Obama is continuing President George W. Bush's effort to advance North American integration with a public-relations makeover calculated to place the program under the radar of public opinion and to deflect concerns about border security and national sovereignty.

The Obama administration has "rebranded" and "refocused" the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America, or SPP, to advance the Bush administration's agenda of North American integration under the rubric of the "North American Leaders Summit," a less controversial banner, according to confidential sources in the U.S. Department of Commerce and State Department who agreed to speak with WND only if their comments were kept off the record.

An instance of serious corporatism is highlighted today in a post on Facebook by a group monitoring the genocide of the Armenians, perpetrated and denied by the Ottomans, and the Turkish state after that:

"It has come to light that, contrary to their public statements of being good corporate citizens and champions of human rights, six American and British mega-corporations have been secretly lobbying the United States Congress not to recognize the Armenian Genocide. In the American system, it is customary for corporations to lobby Congress only on taxes and trade rules related to their specific businesses. It is however highly unusual and downright shameful for corporations to do the bidding of their foreign clients. BAE Systems Inc., Goodrich Corp., Northrop Grumman Corp., Raytheon Co., United Technologies Corp. and energy producer Chevron Corp are spending over a million dollars a week to lobby Congress. The world-wide Armenian community cannot match this level of expenditure. We can however raise our righteous voice by signing the petition below. The collected signatures will be hand delivered and emailed to the corporate heads and key stockholders of these companies.

AIM has more today on the ongoing story of the U.N. Conference on the World Financial and Economic Crisis underway in New York. It reveals what the discerning pundits already concluded: environmentalism is the new Leftist pantheistic creed, and the ticket to global taxation and Socialist world government ... the UN to raise global taxes:

Cliff Kincaid today has more on the preceding entry, describing in outline the tranzie conspiracy to invest the UN with a taxation base of its own. Obviously it's a developing story which is largely ignored by the MSM. It will mark the transition from the UN from an international club and diplomatic talking shop, to a world government invested with the trappings of state:

Accuracy in Media: "U.N. to Emerge as Global IRS"

(...) The Conference on the World Financial and Economic Crisis and its Impact on Development that begins on Wednesday will consider adoption of a document calling for "new voluntary and innovative sources of financing initiatives to provide additional stable sources of development finance..." This is U.N.-speak for global taxes. They are anything but "voluntary" for the people forced to pay them.
The most "popular" proposals, which could generate tens of billions of dollars in revenue for global purposes, involve taxes on greenhouse gas emissions and financial transactions such as stock trades.
The document was agreed to at an informal meeting of expert "facilitators" and was made available on Monday afternoon at 3 p.m. It is doubtful that any changes will be made to it.
The conference was postponed from June 1-3 and will now take place June 24-26 at the U.N. in New York. While the "outcome document" has been watered down somewhat from the previous version, it still reaffirms attainment of the U.N.'s Millennium Development Goals, which would require the payment of $845 billion from U.S. taxpayers (...) >>>

Accuracy in Media: "U.N. Red and U.S. “Progressives” Plan Socialist World Government", by Clinn Kincaid

While meaningless United Nations hand-wringing over the North Korean nuclear weapons program garners the headlines, the world body is moving ahead with a global conference to lay the groundwork for world government financed by global taxes. The communist head of the U.N. General Assembly is leading the effort, but he is getting crucial support from "progressive" economists who advise the Obama Administration and the Democratic Party.

The United Nations Conference on the World Financial and Economic Crisis and Its Impact on Development, previously scheduled for June 1-3, will now take place on June 24-26. U.N. General Assembly President Miguel D'Escoto is the U.N. point man on these "global governance" issues. We noted his role at the United Nations in a column last October. Now, even the New York Times is paying attention to what this crackpot has been up to.

D'Escoto, the Times said, believes the way out of the global financial crisis "should be lined with all manner of new global institutions, authorities and advisory boards," including the Global Stimulus Fund, the Global Public Goods Authority, the Global Tax Authority, the Global Financial Products Safety Commission, the Global Financial Regulatory Authority, the Global Competition Authority, the Global Council of Financial and Economic Advisers, the Global Economic Coordination Council, and the World Monetary Board.

D'Escoto is the former foreign minister of Communist Sandinista Nicaragua and Catholic Priest of the Maryknoll Order who advocates Marxist-oriented liberation theology and won the Lenin Peace Prize from the old Soviet Union. D'Escoto also claims a Master's of Science from Columbia University's School of Journalism. The Times interviewed Paul Oquist, D'Escoto's senior adviser for the conference, who sat beneath portraits of Fidel Castro of Cuba, Hugo Chavez of Venezuela and Daniel Ortega of Nicaragua, among others.

New York Post: "OBAMA'S MOST PERILOUS LEGAL PICK"
JUDGES should interpret the Constitution according to other nations' legal "norms." Sharia law could apply to disputes in US courts. The United States constitutes an "axis of disobedience" along with North Korea and Saddam-era Iraq. Those are the views of the man on track to become one of the US government's top lawyers: Harold Koh.
President Obama has nominated Koh -- until last week the dean of Yale Law School -- to be the State Department's legal adviser. In that job, Koh would forge a wide range of international agreements on issues from trade to arms control, and help represent our country in such places as the United Nations and the International Court of Justice.
It's a job where you want a strong defender of America's sovereignty. But that's not Koh. He's a fan of "transnational legal process," arguing that the distinctions between US and international law should vanish.(...) >>>

New American: ""Supersizing" the IMF", by William F. Jasper - FEATURE - Hat Tip: SpitFire

Is the International Monetary Fund headed toward becoming the Federal Reserve of the world? Although one-world elitists in political and banking circles have been promoting the idea for many years, it has taken the current global economic crisis to provide the appearance of urgency and legitimacy needed to make the Global Fed scheme sellable to the public. On January 31, at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, the IMF's First Deputy Managing Director John Lipsky announced that the IMF is moving forward with plans to double the amount of money it has available to loan to governments, raising its current stock of $250 billion to a total of $500 billion. This was a huge announcement (...) >>>

His central message was that Russia did not want to engage the West in a new Cold War but that it would react if provoked, as it feels it was last month in the Caucasus, where it judged that its interests were being threatened.

Politeia: "Belgium: Ground Zero of Transnational Politics"

The Brussels Journal ventures another interesting observation: "Belgium can continue to flourish without a national government for the simple reason that the cabinet doesn’t have to decide much anyway. Most authority has devolved to the regions […] The central government is left to deal with foreign policy, defense and finance policy – all issues that are increasingly taken care of at the EU level." This accurately describes the transnationalist plan of operation: (...)

The hypothesis is taking shape, that this project was started decades ago on a micro level, when villages, municipalities and town councils were stripped of their historical identity and began a process of re-structuring into administrative clusters under fantasy names that had no root in local history. An example would be three villages - Oakborough, Bridgewick and Weathertown, administered by the new council of Goodchange (motto: "Change for Progress"). It is preferably well infiltrated by tranzies, professional key posts being manned by fifth columnists trained by the Common Purpose school of progressive thought. IngSoc exists ... (...) >>>

The two parts of my editorial Learning from the Top Down and a first reading of Jonah Goldberg's remarkable book, Liberal Fascism, led me to re-name what I thought I could never understand (...) Meganomics is inspired not by corporations, but by "corporatism", which is that monetary conversation between a progressively monopolizing set of major industries such as Microsoft and Progressive federal government. Meganomics occurs during golf games between presidents and CEO's such as Bill Clinton and Bill Gates. That is Meganomics and corporatism, and these two, third millennium, novelties might very well end up ruling the world. (...) >>>

Private Papers: "Twilight of the Nation-State - European transnationalism is a utopian dream, Pierre Manent warns", by Bruce S. Thornton, City Journal - A review of Democracy Without Nations? The Fate of Self-Government in Europe by Pierre Manent, translated by Paul Seaton (Intercollegiate Studies Institute, 130 pp.)

The European Union’s grand project rests on the belief that nationalism is passé, indeed pernicious. Fascism’s mystic nationalism proved, on this view, that the nation-state impedes the spread of human rights, tolerance, and the rational adjudication of disputes — all essential to global peace. The nation-state should therefore give way to organizations like the E.U.: a transnational, secular institution that can bring about peace and prosperity by practicing what French intellectual Chantal Delsol calls “techno-politics” — a rational approach superior to the atavistic passions and superstitions that fired nationalism.

Politeia: "The Balkans Fall-Out: the 2008 Global Watershed"

Michaletos: "The coming annum of 2008 will reveal finally the tunnel exit for the Kosovo martyrdom. The American presidential elections, the changing of guard in the Kremlin, the possible German elections, the Serbian elections, the Albanian domestic political uproar, FYROM's uneasy status, Bosnia's upcoming division along ethnic lines and d a possible war with Iran ( ...) Surprises and upturns are in for everyone it seems and a stressful year lies ahead for public officials that deal with the Balkans one way or another. The certain factor for anyone involved is that Kosovo is not merely a Serbian eparchy but a symbolic emblem between two ideological-ethical stratums that are on collision course."

Cyprus (Greece and Spain) might veto the E.U.'s recognition of Kosovo's unilateral declaration of independence. But if momentum builds up in the international community and Kosovo does gain independence, the consequences of such a move could be potentially devastating for Cyprus. (...)

(...) an opportunity of breaking up the old order, deleting borders and atomizing sovereign nations, giving free reign to ad hoc regions in shifting transnational power blocs in the name of what is seen as 'our own greater good', throwing justice and absolutist values to the dogs and call it pragmatism: the global tribalism of transnational progressivism fits the new Communists to a T in their desperately striving for world pacification (world government). It is of course what Marx has predicted.These pretences are after all the only pieces of surrogate morality that cover up the all-out fascism.
