The global elite have chosen the Bank For International Settlements, which financed Hitler’s war machine, to boss the financial arm of the new world order

European Central Bank chief Jean-Claude Trichet’s announcement that the Bank for International Settlements is to become the primary engine for global governance is a shocking admission given the fact that this ultra-secretive menagerie of international bankers was once controlled by top Nazis who, in collusion with global central banks, funneled money through the institution which directly financed Hitler’s war machine.

During a speech to the elitist CFR organization earlier this week, ECB head Trichet said that the Global Economy Meeting (GEM), which regularly meets at the BIS headquarters in Basel, “Has become the prime group for global governance among central banks”.

The GEM is basically a policy steering committee under the umbrella of the Bank for International Settlements. In its current form, the BIS, which itself is not accountable to any national government, is comprised of banking chiefs from global central banks, most of which are private and also have no responsibility to their nation states or their citizens.

The board of directors who control the BIS include Federal Reserve chief Ben Bernanke and Bank of England head Mervyn King, as well as Trichet himself.

On April 26, 2010, WMR reported: “Multiple U.S. intelligence sources have reported to WMR that a super-classified network with only some 70 terminals in select U.S. government locations handled the parallel command-and-control activities that permitted the 9/11 terrorist attacks to be successful.

“The ‘above top secret’ network bears the acronym ‘PDAS.’ WMR has not yet discovered what the acronym stands for, however, the system is limited to only a few hundred people with Sensitive Compartmented Information (SCI) Special Access Program (SAP) need-to-know access, in addition to the President and Vice President.”

Greece’s near bankruptcy won’t scuttle Canada-EU trade talks: minister

Friday, April 30th, 2010

Van Loan said history has shown that free trade deals raise all boats, telling a business audience the North American Free Trade Agreement has doubled Canada’s trade with the United States and tripled it with Mexico.

Actual free trade deals do not come with strings attached. This is a Transatlantic regionalization treaty, not ‘free trade’.

TORONTO – As a nervous, recession-weary world watches to see if Greece’s near bankruptcy will drag down other European countries, Canada’s Conservative government is determined to forge ahead with a major free trade agreement with the European Union.

The economic contagion threatening Portugal, Italy and other countries in the region “has little to do” with the potential opportunities ongoing trade talks represent, Trade Minister Peter Van Loan told reporters Friday following a speech in Toronto.

“I view those challenges as, while important, I don’t think that they have any impact on the trade talks or the potential opportunities that the trade agreement would represent,” Van Loan said.

ATHENS, GREECE–New austerity measures must be taken for the survival of debt-ridden Greece, Prime Minister George Papandreou said Friday, as negotiations on the details of a rescue plan with the International Monetary Fund and the European Union entered the final stretch.

The talks over what extra steps Athens must take as part of the rescue, which will provide €45 billion in loans this year and up to a reported €120 billion over several years, are expected to be completed over the weekend, possibly by Sunday.

Once an agreement on further cuts is in place, Germany – which would be the largest EU contributor to the aid package and has insisted on strict conditions for releasing the money – is expected to quickly push the issue through parliament so funds can be approved before Greece faces a May 19 debt payment date.

“The measures we must take, which are economic measures, are necessary for the protection of our country. For our survival, for our future, So we can stand firmly on our feet,” Papandreou said in Parliament.

It is a patriotic duty to undertake this, with whatever political cost, which is tiny faced with the national cost of inaction … and indecision,” he said.
