Bank for International Settlements

The Bank for International Settlements (BIS) was founded in 1930 by J. P. Morgan & Co and six central banks (p445) https://treaties.un.org/doc/Publication/UNTS/LON/Volume%20104/v104.pdf

The United Nations and all of its member states are corporations that have international legal personality.

"There is almost universal agreement that states are international persons." http://assets.cambridge.org/97805217/68450/excerpt/9780521768450_excerpt.pdf http://academia.edu/34438964/Contemporary_issues_of_legal_personality_in_international_law._Factual_and_normative_problems

The UK government is a 'corporation aggregate' which is legally separate from the ministers that comprise the government who are each a 'corporation sole" and each a separate legal entity. Article 3 of the Ministers of the Crown Act 1975 enables any Secretary of State/Minister to be incorporated as a 'corporation sole'. https://legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2018/378/note/made https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corporation_sole

The UK Supreme Court is a government department i.e. it is part of the UK government corporation aggregate. https://supremecourt.uk/careers.html https://gov.uk/government/organisations

Every UK local authority is a municipal corporation. The Court of Appeal, High Court, Crown Court, County Court, and magistrates' courts are administered by Her Majesty's Courts and Tribunals Service, an executive agency of the Ministry of Justice.

The Bank for International Settlements (BIS) can bestow its legal immunities on third parties such as corporations & individuals so that the property & assets of the third parties are treated as if they are the property & assets of the BIS.

See Article 1 https://bis.org/about/protocol-en.pdf

The property and assets of the BIS and all deposits entrusted to the BIS cannot be seized, requisitioned, confiscated, expropriated or prohibited in a time of peace or in a time of war i.e. Never.

See BIS Charter, Article 10. https://bis.org/about/charter-en.pdf

All UK legislation and all judgements/rulings made by any UK judicial court are protected by the BIS legal immunities and treated as if they are the property of the BIS and cannot be used against the BIS in peacetime or wartime.

All disputes involving the BIS are dealt with in the Permanent Court of Arbitration. "Arbitration is regarded by many now as the principal method of resolving international disputes involving states, individuals and corporations." https://barcouncil.org.uk/media/574611/brexit_paper_2_-_international_arbitration.pdf
https://www.bis.org/about/arb_trib.htm

Legal immunities enable the BIS to stay out of the global judicial legal system. Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), such as arbitration, does not have to abide by the rule of law.

From Cells to Cities to Surveillance


It seems the powers that be have decided that If you wanted to teach Artificial Intelligence (AI) to track, monitor and analyse billions of different things all at once, there are few better places to teach the AI than under the umbrella of healthcare. This is not only because of the vast range of tasks, specialist skills, equipment and tools that are being done/used at any one time, but also because of the wide range of different industries that interconnect with the healthcare sector. Within the next decade or so, doctors, nurses, and other healthcare staff will have no choice other than to use equipment that contain AI and Internet of Things sensors. The equipment used in hospitals now will become obsolete and not meet the required standard to be used in hospitals because the equipment is not interoperable.

King's Fund tell us (p.6) that "Improving people’s health is often seen as the job of healthcare services – doctors, nurses, medicines and technology. But while healthcare plays an important part in determining people’s health, it is only one part of the story. Evidence tells us that a greater role is played by our lifestyles, the local environment, and the wider social and economic determinants of health at play across society. In other words, health is shaped by the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age, as well as the inequities in power and resources that create those conditions. Instead of being the role of healthcare alone, improving population health requires collective action across different services, sectors and community groups, focused on improving health and reducing inequities for all of the people living within a particular area. To achieve this goal, these different services and sectors need to work together as systems, recognising that no single organisation is able to act on these complex influences of health on their own." In other words your health has to be monitored 24/7, which includes at home, in the workplace, at social gatherings, out in the environment - at all times, everywhere. AI could be incorporated into any industry, tools, equipment, workplace, premises, vehicle, and just about any location indoors and outdoors, under the guise of monitoring health and wellbeing.

The main determinants of population health are agriculture & food production, education, living conditions, work & working conditions, unemployment, water & sanitation, healthcare services, housing, social & community networks, individual lifestyle factors, age, and genetic factors. Complex systemsfrom cells to cities—require networks to ensure that every component has access to the resources needed. A universal feature of networks, from the metabolic network that supplies energy to a cell, to the social and professional networks that contribute to the vitality of a big city, is the presence of major hubs that hold the smaller nodes together. The tools required to improve population health are spread widely across society – not held within government departments or healthcare organisations. (p.29). The NHS slides 56 - 72 here, outline the 'cells to cities' concept and the always-on person centred care.

Healthcare, financial markets, economies, industries, environment, urbanisation, crime, pollution and many other factors are not independent, but are all highly coupled, inter-related, multi-scale complex adaptive systems. (pp.95, 96). Cities are largely unpredictable because they are complex systems that are more like organisms than machines. Neither the laws of economics nor the laws of mechanics apply; cities are the product of countless individual and collective decisions that do not conform to any grand plan. They are the product of our inventions; they evolve. The plan is to transform cities into self-learning, self-modulating organisms known as smart cities, which are being designed based on the structure and function of human cells.

In 2007, the Commonwealth Fund launched the Triple Aim Initiative which represented a range of healthcare organisations in the United States, England, and Sweden, and was later expanded to include more countries. The initiative shifted the focus away from individual healthcare institutions and providers—and their outcomes—to population health.

NHS/healthcare is being used as the training ground for AI in an effort to provide an AI template that can be used in many other industries. The plan is to automate as many types of work/tasks as possible while also making AI responsible for monitoring and analysing staff/volunteers/patients/visitors, phones and internet, security, cleaning, administration, health & safety, procurement, stocktaking, storage, transportation, vehicle maintenance, facilities management, laboratories, food services, hospital shops, to name just a few. 

AI is being taught to deal with many aspects of NHS estates and facilities management, which includes planning, designing and monitoring the building of new hospitals. The planning stages, surveying stages, foundations, bricklaying, plumbing, drainage, electrical work, construction of roadways & car parks, health and safety, security systems, and so forth, will all be monitored and analysed by AI to ensure that all tasks/work are done to required standards. And once the AI has gotten to grips with all aspects of planning, designing, and monitoring the building of a new hospital from start to finish, the AI can then be used by constructions companies to oversee the planning, design, and construction of many types of buildings in many other industries. 

By teaching the AI to monitor and analyse all aspects of education provided by medical schools, dental schools, nursing schools, and other hospital education providers, the AI could be taught to monitor and analyse most, if not all, aspects of teaching, training, assessments and exams, to ensure that the highest standards of teaching, training and assessment are being practised. Once the AI has gotten to grips with what it is expected to do, the AI could also carry out the same functions throughout the national education system, i.e. schools, colleges, and universities.

Communitarianism on trial


Agenda 21, the United Nations blueprint for global transformation, sounds good to many people. Drafted for the purpose of creating "sustainable societies", it has been welcomed by nations around the world. Political, cultural, and media leaders have embraced its visions of social justice and a healthy planet.

Universal basic income (UBI) pilot schemes are currently being trialled in a number of countries, such as Brazil, Canada, Finland, India, Italy, Kenya, Namibia, Netherlands, Uganda, and the USA. Other countries in the pipeline include Lithuania, Scotland, and South Korea.

The World Economic Forum tells us here that Cities, not nation states, will determine our future survival. On 4th May 2017, seven so-called City Regions in the UK each elected a Metro Mayor, as outlined in the Cities and Local Government Devolution Act, which allows for the devolution of almost anything – housing, health, welfare, policing, skills, transport, and more – to a local level. The Global Parliament of Mayors is a governance body of, by and for mayors from all continents and works in association with Metropolis, the City Mayors Foundation, and the Global network of cities, local and regional governments (UCLG). 

Communitarianism is Communism + Capitalism and is a mandatory partnership between the public sector (government), private sector (business), and social sector (community) -- managed through Global Standards and laws established by national and international governments. The rights of the community as a whole take precedence over the rights of the individual.

In a presentation by Steve Waldman at a Silicon Valley meetup (pp.41-49), Waldman tells us that all we require for a Universal Basic Income is, "A community of people who agree to pool resource in order to finance a UBI across its membership." And that:

• UBI is first and foremost an insurance arrangement.

• Insurance arrangements function best when there is complete ignorance about who is likely to experience relatively good or relatively bad outcomes.

• From under a “veil of ignorance”, nearly all risk-averse humans voluntarily enter insurance arrangements to pool risk.

• But knowledge poisons insurance pools!

• Regardless of knowledge, distributive outcomes are often better (from a variety of social perspectives) when an entire community participates in an insurance arrangement.

• States can “coercively” enforce this participation, by extracting premia in taxes or imposing an “individual mandate”. They can enforce “as-if” ignorance to ensure viability of an insurance pool by limiting the information on the basis of which insurers are permitted to differentially price.

• Social norms and interpersonal relationships might persuade people to look past narrow economic self-interest in order to support a deep community.

Another proponent of UBI is Scott Santens who tells us that UBI is “a win-win for the market and those who comprise the market. It’s a way to improve on capitalism and even democracy, by making sure everyone has the minimum amount of voice.” And that, "When people are given additional income without conditions, we repeatedly observe gains in social and community relations. Personality traits improve. People begin to work together more. They set mutual goals." Santens is of the opinion UBI is entirely affordable and that the cost depends greatly on the chosen plan.

There have been several attempts already to develop a UBI using blockchain technology. For instance the Grantcoin Foundation launched a tokenized model (Manna Currency) as an experiment that anyone can sign up to. A similar model is Circles. Blockchain technology can be used to create a permanent, public, transparent ledger system for compiling data on sales and financial transactions.

The section on communitarianism (pp.91/92) in a paper, from the University of Bath, informs us that "for a number of UBI proponents, the principles underlying UBI are not at all incompatible with a desire to foster communal life and to promote a more cohesive and harmonious society. For one thing, UBI would reduce people’s dependence on wage labour, permitting them to devote more time to civic responsibilities."

IHS Markit: Spearheading a Global Multi-Industry Cartel

In January 2006, Markit Group Limited and CDSIndexCo (a consortium of 16 investment banks including ABN AMRO; Bear Stearns; Lehman Brothers; JPMorgan; Bank of America; Goldman Sachs; BNP Paribas; Barclays Capital; HSBC; and UBS, launched ABX.HE, an asset-backed credit derivative index that allowed investors to trade long or short U.S. subprime mortgages. The global financial crash began in 2007 with a crisis in the subprime mortgages market in the USA, and developed into a full-blown international banking crisis with the collapse of the investment bank Lehman Brothers on September 15, 2008. At the height of the crisis, when the U.S. economy was on the brink, it was to the Rothschild controlled BlackRock that the U.S. government turned to for help.

Markit Group Limited (previously named Hackremco (No. 1804) Limited) was incorporated in London on the 22 March 2001 by Hackwood Directors Limited & Hackwood Secretaries Limited (both owned by Linklaters LLP). In what is known as a 'tax inversion', IHS which was founded and based in Colorado, USA, merged in 2016 with the smaller London-based Markit to form IHS Markit which is headquartered in London, UK.

IHS Markit customers (cartel members) include banks, central banks, stock exchanges, auditors, regulators, hedge funds, insurance companies; and span industries including government & military, aerospace & aviation, petrochemical & energy, architecture/engineering/construction, minerals & mining, automotive, electronics & electrical, telecommunications & utilities, healthcare & pharmaceuticals, shipping/transportation, farming & forestry. An initial public offering (IPO) of Markit shares in 2014 included a conflict of interest due to many of the Markit shareholders including JPMorgan, Goldman Sachs, Barclays Bank, HSBC, BNP Paribas, and UBS, also being the underwriters.

Daniel Yergin is the Vice Chairman of IHS Markit, Chairman of IHS CERAWeek, and a member of President Donald Trump's Strategic & Policy Forum. IHS Markit tells us it is a global research and analysis firm of 14,000 people and has 50,000 customers in 140 countries, 85% of the Fortune Global 500, and 94 of the largest 100 U.S. corporations.

IHS Markit also offers comprehensive training courses in anything from software programs to military operations.

CERAWeek hosted by IHS Markit is the premier annual international gathering of energy industry leaders, experts, government officials and policymakers. The speakers list and agenda of CERAWeek 2017 reads like a Who's Who of the global energy industry and includes off-the-record discussion on key issues shaping the energy future, private summits and networking events. The 2016 speakers which included the President of Mexico, Foreign Minister of China, the Chairman of the State Grid Corporation, and the Managing Director of Russia & Caspian Energy and Eurasian Transportation Forum, and includes the leadership circle program.

Whether a company wants to identify the safest drilling location or value an oil or coal asset, IHS Markit says their 600+ energy experts and 800+ geoscientists and engineers can help.

On 24th January 2017, President Donald Trump signed a number of executive orders that will allow construction of the Dakota Access and Keystone XL pipelines to move forward. The TransCanada Corporation is behind the Keystone XL pipeline which was proposed in 2008 and is planned to run from Alberta, Canada, to the refineries along the U.S. Gulf Coast. The company Energy Transfer Equity is behind the Dakota Access pipeline which was announced in 2014 and is due to run from northwest North Dakota, USA, to Patoka, Illinois, USA.

IHS Markit acquisitions include the Canada land sales, rig activity & drilling records of CWD Inc. In early January 2017, 66.1 thousand hectares of land, including oil sands, were sold in Alberta, Canada, with an average sale price of $192.55 per hectare. IHS Markit also owns the Oil Price Information Service (OPIS) which serves the energy supply chain worldwide; the Global Trade Information Service (GTIS), and Lloyd's Register of Ships. Over 90% of international trade occurs by shipping.

Total Information Awareness



The Internet of Things International Forum was launched by the EU projects IoT-i and CASAGRAS2 in collaboration with the China Academy of Telecommunication Research (CATR) and China's Wuxi SensingNet. The latter is leading the Internet of Things International Standardisation aided by partner organisations such as the Korean Advanced Institute of Science & Technology (KAIST). The International Telecommunications Union (ITU) defined the Internet of Things and provided the blueprint for its development.

Professor Chan-Mo Park is an emeritus professor at KAIST in South Korea, and also the Chancellor of Pyongyang University of Science & Technology in North Korea which has been accused of training some of North Korea's nuclear and missile development personnel. North Korean defectors Yi Choi, and Jang Se-yul who reportedly worked in the North Korean electronic warfare command, both claim that some graduates of the Pyongyang University of Science & Technology are assigned to the North Korean military Unit 121 for cyber warfare. Professor Chan-Mo Park is also a former president and still an active member of the Korean-American Scientists & Engineers Association (KSEA), and the Honorary Chairman of the International Strategy and Reconciliation Foundation based in Washington DC.

Mr. Houlin Zhao of the People's Republic of China is the Secretary-General (Head) of the International Telecommunications Union (ITU). The ITU is the United Nations specialized agency for Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) such as radar, satellites, GPS, missile control, internet, mobiles, television, and radio for government, military, civil, and commercial use. Military use of ICTs include control of Intercontinental Ballistic Missiles; long range guided missiles; aircraft-to-aircraft communication; and communication with ships and submarines.

Member states of the ITU include China, North Korea, USA, UK, Russia, Iran, Iraq, Syria, Saudi Arabia, and Israel.

The Master International Frequency Register is the ITU database in which all frequencies allocated to each of the 193 member states and 700+ Private-sector entities of the ITU are registered. Each state has to compile a National Table for Frequency Allocation (NTFA) as required in Article 5 (pp.37 - 178) of the ITU Radio Regulations. This ITU document (p.2) tells us that "Since radio waves ignore borders, international coordination of spectrum use is necessary, and the ITU Radio Regulations is the legal instrument that does this: it determines how the radio frequency spectrum is shared between different services and how satellite orbits are to be used, and it prescribes how equipment and systems must operate to ensure peaceful cohabitation, avoiding interference with each other, in today’s increasingly crowded airwaves." Here is the National Table for Frequency Allocation for Hong Kong. The USA and the UK NTFA give the frequencies used by the military. Mr. Houlin Zhao of China, as head of the ITU, has access to the government and military frequency allocations of all 193 member states of the ITU.

When a missile is launched and is heading towards its target, it is ASN.1 which ensures (p.25) that data transmitted by a GPS satellite is precisely the same as the structure of the data when received by the missile guidance system. It was the ITU that led the development and standardisation of ASN.1 and the ITU informs us that ASN.1 is a critical part of our daily lives, it is everywhere, but it works so well it is invisible. ASN.1 is compatible with, but independent of, programming languages, operating systems, and hardware. The uses of ASN.1 include air traffic control, security authentication & cryptography, mobile telephony & wireless networks, electronic cards & tags, ATM's & banking, transportation, website design, graphics & file transfer.  

One of the private sector members of the ITU is the Chinese company Huawei which was founded by Ren Zhengfei of the Chinese People's Liberation Army who held a position equivalent to a Deputy Regimental Chief. Huawei is the world's largest manufacturer of telecommunications equipment, built the networks of over 80% of the world's top 50 telecommunications companies, and has numerous research & development centres and joint innovation centres in countries including, China, Russia, UK, USA, Iran, Iraq, UAE, Syria, Israel, France, Germany, and Belgium. In 2005, Huawei won the contract to upgrade the UK British Telecom 21st Century Network (21CN) which led to so-called concerns that UK telecommunication systems could be vulnerable to attack by China. In 2010 Huawei established a UK cyber security evaluation centre which is overseen by GCHQ. In 2011, John Suffolk, who was formerly the UK government's Chief Information Security Officer, became Global Head of Cyber Security at Huawei.

Huawei is a member of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) based in Washington DC, the Telecommunications Industry Association, North America (TIA), the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), and oneM2M which is the global standards partnership enabling the Internet of Things which is being developed to provide total information awareness. The Internet of Things is an international collaboration that includes China, Russia, USA, UK, European Union, Japan, and other countries (see slide 12). If the governments of only two or three countries were managing & controlling the Internet of Things, then that would make those countries more information aware than the other countries connected to The Internet of Things. All governments, therefore, will have equal access to the total amount of information collected by the Internet of Things.

Considering that governments have a ‘Common Purpose’ and are working together to develop the ‘Internet of Things’, then where do governments believe that potential threats are most likely to come from? The answer would seem to be the so-called 'global 99 percent'. In 2012 the UK government had a parliament & internet conference that included a session entitled 'Concepts of acceptable behaviour to protect and enhance trust - The road to North Korea.

Rothschild Inc is a member of the U.S. Financial Industry Regulatory Authority. Lord Jacob Rothschild was a member of the Board of Directors at Blackstone until 2008 and is currently a member of Blackstone's International Advisory Board. Blackstone was founded in 1985 by Peter G. Peterson the former chairman of the Council of Foreign Relations and former U.S. Secretary of Commerce. The influential Peterson Institute for International Economics (PIIE) is named in his honour. Members of the Board of Directors at PIIE include Lynn Forester de Rothschild; David Rockefeller; Jacob Frenkel the Chairman of JPMorgan Chase International; Ben van Beurden, CEO of the Rothschild owned Royal Dutch Shell; Ginni Rometty the President, Charman, and CEO at IBM; Robert Zoellick the Chairman of Goldman Sachs International advisors and former president of the World Bank (2007-2012); and Caroline Atkinson the Head of Global policy at Google who was formerly an official at the International Monetary Fund and President Obama’s representative at gatherings of the Group of 8, Group of 20, and other major economic summits.

Larry Fink and Lynn Forester de Rothschild are members of the advisory board at 'Focusing Capital on the Long Term. Larry Fink co-founded BlackRock in 1988 under the corporate umbrella of Blackstone. According the The Economist where Lynn Forester de Rothschild is a member of the board of directors, "BlackRock "is the world's largest money manager" and "owns a stake in almost every listed company not just in America but globally. (Indeed, it is the biggest shareholder in Pearson, in turn the biggest shareholder in The Economist.) It is easily the biggest investor in the world, with $4.1 trillion of directly controlled assets (almost as much as all private-equity and hedge funds put together) and another $11 trillion it oversees through its trading platform, Aladdin (see article)."

David Calhoun, Senior Managing Director at Blackstone is a member of the Board of Directors at Boeing. Other members of the Board of Directors at Boeing are Mike Zafirovsky an Executive Advisor at Blackstone; and Randall Stephenson, the Chairman & CEO at Rothschild owned AT&T. In 2000, Rothschild formed a strategic alliance withGlobal Technology Partners LLC which is headed by Boeing Director William J Perry who is a Director of J.P. Morgan H&Q Principals and was Bill Clinton's U.S. Secretary of Defense. One of the senior partners at Global Technology Partners LLC is Paul G. Kaminski who is a member of President Obama's Intelligence Advisory Board, and serves as a member of the Director of National Intelligence Senior Advisory Group, and the FBI Director’s Advisory Board. Kaminski is also Chairman of the Board of Directors at Exostar and tells us that Global Technology Partners LLC is an exclusive affiliate of Rothschild North America.

Olivier Litzka is a Partner of Edmond de Rothschild Investment Partners and is on the Board of Directors at Autonomic Technologies which is a Cleveland Clinic innovations spin off.

Jamie Dimon is Chairman and CEO at JPMorgan Chase & Co. At the age of 21, J.P. Morgan was sent to the USA to work as an agent on behalf of N.M.Rothschild & Sons and his father J.S. Morgan. As well as arranging loans to the U.S. government, J.P. Morgan paid nearly two million dollars to buy into Edison's General Electric Company. Michael A. Neal who is presently a member of the Board of Directors at JPMorgan Chase & Co, was vice Chairman & CEO of General Electric Company.    

Global Infrastructure Partners was formed as a joint venture between General Electric (GE) Infrastructure and the Rothschild owned Credit Suisse which is the second largest bank in Switzerland. In an interview with Ariane de Rothschild published in March 2016, she is asked "How do you feel today in the Swiss financial industry?" and responds by mentioning only one bank - Credit Suisse.

Donald Trump has chosen Rex Tillerson, CEO of Exxon to be U.S. Secretary of State. Lee R. Raymond at JPMorgan Chase is a former Chairman of the Board and CEO of ExxonMobil, the world’s largest publicly traded international oil and gas company. William C. Weldon is Chairman of the Board of Directors at JPMorgan Chase and is a Director of Exxon Mobil. (See Exxon here).

Goodwill to the UN cried Lucifer



The Lucis Trust was established in 1922 as the Lucifer Publishing Company by Alice and Foster Bailey to publish and disseminate the works of Alice Bailey, Helena Blavatsky and the Theosophical Society on the subject of Occultism. Blavatsky is a descendant of the von Hahn family of Mecklenburg, which is the same family the Rothschild's claim to descend from. In Blavatsky's book entitled 'The Secret Doctrine', Blavatsky tells us (p.241) "the teachings of Christ were Occult teachings, which could only be explained at initiation. They were never intended for the masses, for Jesus forbade the twelve to go to the Gentiles and the Samaritans (Matth., X. 5), and repeated to his disciples that the "mystery of the kingdom of God" was for them alone, not for the multitudes (Mark, iv. 11). Blavatsky goes on to state that, it is "Satan who is the God of our planet and the only God"..."When the Church curses Satan, it curses the Cosmic reflection of God." (p.245). "Satan will be shown, in the teaching of the Secret Doctrine, to be allegorized as Good and Sacrifice, a God of Wisdom, under different names." (p.247). "Lucifer is divine and terrestrial Light, the "Holy Ghost" and "Satan," at one and the same time." (p.539). "The Logos and Satan are one." (p.541).

In Blavatsky's book 'The Key to Theosophy' which is written in the form of questions and answers, Blavatsky is asked, "Do you [Theosophists] believe in the God of the Christians, the Father of Jesus, and the Creator, the Biblical God of Moses, in short."? Blavatsky's answer is, "In such a God we do not believe...The God of theology, we say — and prove it — is a bundle of contradictions and a logical impossibility. Therefore, we will have nothing to do with him." The Blavatsky Theosophy Group UK tell us that "Madame Blavatsky asserts inThe Secret Doctrinethat the title of “Satan” belongs by right to Jehovah." And that "Jehovah corresponds to SATURN and is sometimes spoken of in the ancient teachings as a “son of Saturn".

Alice and Foster Bailey, the Lucis Trust tell us, were "serious students and teachers of Theosophy, and like the great teacher H.P. Blavatsky, for whom the Bailey's had enormous respect, sought to elicit a deeper understanding of the sacrifice made by Lucifer."  The Lucis Trust views Lucifer as one of the solar Angels, supposedly advanced beings that Theosophy says descended (thus “the fall”) from Venus to our planet eons ago to bring the principle of mind to what was then animal-man. In the theosophical perspective, the descent of solar Angels was not a fall into sin or disgrace but rather an act of great sacrifice.

Robert Muller, former Assistant Secretary-General for Economic and Social Serves of the United Nations, is known as the 'Father of Global Education", 'Philosopher of the United Nations' and 'Prophet of Hope', conceived and co-created many United Nations programs and institutions. Muller won a contest initiated by the United Nations with an essay on world government. He was invited to join the UN as an intern in 1948. In the Preface of Robert Muller's World Core Curriculum Manual it is stated that: "The underlying philosophy upon which The Robert Muller School is based will be found in the teachings set forth in the books of Alice A. Bailey. The World Core Curriculum Manual and The World Core Curriculum Journal are published and sold by the Lucis Trust and the UN headquarters in New York.

The Lucis Trust has a meditation room (p.3) in the UN headquarters in New York, that was opened in 1957 by the late Dag Hammarskjöld who was then Secretary-General of the UN. See 'Letters on Occult Meditation' by Alice Bailey. The Lucis Trust has Consultative Status to the UN Economic and Social Council which is the highest status granted by the UN to non-governmental organizations, thereby allowing them to participate in the work of the UN.  In Bailey's book Discipleship In the New Age II, (p. 220), she writes that, "Within the United Nations is the germ and the seed of a great international and meditating, reflective group – a group of thinking and informed men and women in whose hands lies the destiny of humanity. "The mind is the slayer of the Real. Slay thou the slayer" the disciple is commanded.

'World Goodwill' is a Lucis Trust initiative at the UN and is an accredited organization with the Department of Public Information, which is responsible for communicating the work of the UN to the world. One of the purposes of World Goodwill is to help prepare civilisation for "the coming world Teacher" (Lord Maitreya) who "will be mainly concerned, not with the result of past error and inadequacy, but with the requirements of a new world order and with the re-organisation of the social structure." Lord Maitreya is the entity that Theosophist organisations call the Christ, who they believe overshadowed [possessed] Jesus and had spoken through Jesus during his three year ministry and assisted Jesus in raising up his crucified body - but with new spiritual powers.

Another two Lucis Trust subsidiaries at the UN are the Aquarian Age Community (AAC) and the Temple of Understanding. The AAC tells us here about "The Spiritual Foundation of The United Nations" and that the AAC is inspired by the teachings set forth in the books by Helena Blavatsky, Alice Bailey, and the Agni Yoga Society. The Temple of Understanding was founded to represent all world religions and promote interfaith dialogue and education. The plan, it would seem, is to convince people of all religions that the God/Supreme Being of their religion is fictitious and then get everyone worshiping one 'Lord of the World' that Theosophists call Sanat Kumara, with Lord Maitreya (the teacher) functioning under his guidance.

Just as the United Nations constitutes the precursor of a one world government, the Temple of Understanding can be seen as the basis for a one world religion. "The Great Invocation if given widespread distribution, say the Lucis Trust, can be to the new world religion what the Lord’s Prayer has been to Christianity and the 23rd Psalm has been to the spiritually minded Jew." Alice Bailey states that, "The meaning of this Invocation has been expressed in terms which are understandable, in a measure, to the average person because of its familiar wording, based on many Scriptural terms. But the true inner implications and significances are of very deep import and are not superficially apparent.

The BIS, United Nations and International Legal System

The privately owned Bank for International Settlements (BIS) is the world's oldest international financial organisation and was established in 1930 by three commercial banks, J.P. Morgan & Co of New York, the First National Bank of New York, the First National Bank of Chicago, and the privately owned Central Banks of Belgium, France, Germany, Great Britain, Italy, and Japan (p.445). Section 3 here informs us that "In common with many of its founding central banks in 1930, the BIS was given the legal structure of a limited company with an issued share capital." The BIS is the hub of the global financial system and owns the central banks of countries that together make up about 95% of world GDP.

Located in Basel, Switzerland, the BIS has legal immunities from any kind of financial regulation and/or judicial action in a court of law. The BIS legal immunities can also be made applicable to any banks, bankers, corporations or individuals of any country that are acting on behalf of the BIS. All legal disputes involving the BIS are dealt with through the Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) that has no sitting Judges, the parties themselves select the arbitrators, and sessions are held in private and are confidential.

Article 1 of the Protocol regarding the immunities of the Bank for International Settlements informs us that, on the instructions of the Bank for International Settlements the property and assets held by any third party institution or person acting on behalf of the Bank for International Settlements shall be considered as entrusted to the Bank for International Settlements and shall enjoy the same immunities as the property and assets held by the Bank for International Settlements. (Also see Article 10). The host country agreement for the representative office of the BIS in Hong Kong (Article 3) and Mexico (Article 6) state that, "The Bank shall not be subject to any form of financial or banking supervision or obliged to implement any form of accounting standard".

Article 21(g) tells us that the BIS may buy and sell negotiable securities other than shares. Negotiable securities include certificates of interest in gas, oil, or other mineral rights. Corporations such as the Rothschild and/or Rockefeller controlled Royal Dutch Shell, British Petroleum, Rio Tinto Group, Glencore, BHP Billiton, and Exxon Mobil can be given the immunities of the BIS which has the role of intermediary for loan repayments to the World Bank Group (WBG) and International Monetary Fund (IMF). When a country receives a loan from the WBG or IMF, the terms for repaying the loan often include allowing corporations in the extractive industries to undertake oil & gas drilling and mineral mining. To give an example, the Ecuadorian government is obliged, under the terms of loan agreements with the WBG & IMF, to divide the Ecuadorian Amazon into rectangles, or blocks, for concession to oil companies.

By using the Mauritian International Arbitration Act 2008, global corporations, such as the BIS, can have disputes settled by the Secretary-General of the PCA whose decisions are final and are not subject to appeal or review. The PCA enables disputes to be settled outside of the international legal system where corporations (and states) can fall foul of national and international laws. The United Nations insist that the PCA is not a United Nations agency, but the PCA does work very closely (pp.9 & 28) with the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) and other United Nations agencies. Miguel de Serpa Soares of Portugal is the current United Nations Under-Secretary General for Legal Affairs, a member of the United Nations Senior Management Group, and a member of the Permanent Court of Arbitration (p.32).

At the Peace Palace in The Hague, the PCA is located in the same building as the United Nations International Court of Justice (ICJ). The ICJ lacks automatic international compulsory jurisdiction, but, throughout its history, has misleadingly defined its role as "the judicial organ of the legal order of the international community as a whole."

The United Nations and the ICJ (World Court) were established by the same charter in 1945, under the direction of Baron Robert Rothschild and Paul Henri Spaak. The latter was a founding member (p.8) of the Bank for International Settlements, the 1st President of the United Nations, the 1st Chairman of the Council of Europe, and Secretary-General of NATO. Emma Rothschild is a founding member of the United Nations Foundation and remains a board member.

To end this blog-post on some notes about tax havens. Many accounting firms, law firms, investment banks, and commercial banks operate as a Professional Services Network whereby each outlet is not a branch of the firm, but is a separate legal and independent entity. Even if government's genuinely wanted to ban tax havens, it seems that at present they couldn't because of the legal immunities that have been given to the Rothschild's and their organisations the BIS, World Bank, IMF, OECD, and United Nations.

Rothschild, AT&T, IBM



An electrical telegraph was developed and patented in the United States in 1837 by Samuel Morse. His assistant, Alfred Vail, devised the dot & dash system that became known as Morse code. The first telegram in the United States was sent by Morse on 11 January 1838, across two miles of wire.

In 1837 George Peabody left Massachusetts and took up permanent residence in London.

August Belmont was the Rothschild agent in New York, USA, from 1837 and would become chairman of the Democratic National Committee, involved in the elections of U.S. President's Franklin Pierce and James Buchanan. Belmont also spearheaded the campaign of Senator Stephen Douglas who was the main political rival of Abraham Lincoln. Many people believed that August Belmont led the conspiracy to assassinate Abraham Lincoln, and this belief forever after shadowed him and affected how he was viewed in public and private life.

Sir Curtis Lampson, George Peabody, and Samuel Gurney were among those who established the Atlantic Telegraph [Cable] Company in 1856.

The International Telegraph Convention in 1865 led to the formation of the International Telegraph Union now known as the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and is the United Nations agency for ICT including Internet and Satellites. The 1865 Convention was presided over by Prince Metternich of Austria (pp. 180; 183 & 184) with Mr. Drouyn de Lhuys (French Minister of Foreign Affairs) acting as chairman. You can find more info about Metternich & the Rothschild's here.

The Bell Telephone Company was founded by Alexander Graham Bell & partners in 1877. The Western Electric Company was purchased by Bell Telephone Company in 1881. One of the subsidiaries of Bell Telephone Company was the American Telephone & Telegraph Company (AT&T), established in 1885. J.P. Morgan became the controlling shareholder in Bell Telephone Company & AT&T.

Theodore Vail, cousin of Alfred Vail, became General Manager of Bell Telephone Company in 1878. Theodore Vail, photographed here at his home on Jekyll Island with J.P Morgan & William Rockefeller, also became the first president of AT&T. Meetings also took place on Jekyll Island to found the Federal Reserve.

In 1889, the tabulating machine was patented by Herman Hollerith.

Charles R. Flint, J.P. Morgan and August Belmont Jr combine in 1901 to consolidate factories in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Charles R Flint, August Belmont Jr, and others incorporated
Flint & Co in 1902.

In 1911, Charles R Flint bought out Hollerith and merged the Tabulating Machine Company with Computing Scale and ITR to form the Computing Tabulating Recording Company which would later be renamed IBM.

AT&T = 1st telephone exchanges, 1st transnational radio stations, 1st television broadcast, and Telstar was the 1st telecommunication satellite.

AT&T & BBC collaborated on 1st satellite TV broadcast via Goonhilly Downs which is a Rothschild Reserve in Cornwall.

Sir Evelyn de Rothschild was Director of IBM United Kingdom Holdings Limited, 1972-1995.

IBM & AT&T partner to develop the Internet of Things

IBM & Cisco Alliance

IBM, Cisco, and Microsoft ties with Chinese military runs deep. The Chinese military leads us to Huawei.

IBM.net was formerly "AT&T Business Internet Services"

The Anthropogenic Global Warming Scam

At the 1st World Wilderness Congress (WWC) in 1977, Edmund Leopold de Rothschild presented a paper to the congress (pp.47-52) entitled 'Raising the standards of living by means of large technical developments without endangering the flora and fauna'. Rothschild states in his presentation that, “Clearly, it is indeed possible to transform the landscape significantly to the benefit of mankind without at the same time having to despoil the environment." Rothschild goes on to add, "About a hundred years ago the famous German philosopher Nietzsche wrote: 'Inescapably, hesitatingly, terrible like fate, the great task approaches: how should the earth as a whole be administered? To what end should man, no longer a people or a race, be raised and bred?” Rothschild then asks the rhetorical question, "Can we control the elements, harness nature itself and still retain our humanity?" And then offers his answer in the closing remarks: "Teilhard de Chardin, the French theologian, so very wisely wrote: Some day after mastering the winds, the waves, tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire."


The Society for the Promotion of Nature Reserves (SPNR), which was formed by Charles Rothschild, identified 284 key sites in the UK to be ‘preserved in perpetuity’, which eventually became known as the Rothschild Reserves . After several name changes it became The Royal Society for Nature Conservation in 1981 and is now called the Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts. A Rothschild Reserve at Dungeness headland in Kent, UK, has a nuclear power station on it. And another Rothschild Reserve at Lizard Point in Cornwall, UK, is site to one of the world's largest satellite tracking and communication stations.


In 1983, the UN General Assembly set up the World Commission on Environment and Development, known as the Brundtland Commission after its chairperson, Gro Harlem Brundtland, who, at that time, was Norwegian Prime Minister. "The Brundtland report, published in 1987 as Our Common Future, declared that the time had come for a marriage between the environment and the economy and used the term "sustainable development" as the way to ensure that economic development would not endanger the ability of future generations to enjoy the fruits of the earth."

George Hunt tells us that he was a delegate at the 4th WWC in 1987 when Edmund L. de Rothschild stated, without scientific basis, that CO2 is the cause of global warming. The 4th WWC proposed the founding of a World Conservation Bank which issues loans, primarily to third world countries, taking land as collateral. If a country can't repay the loan(s) plus interest, the Rothschild's World Conservation Bank gets the land. The Rothschild's can thereby possibly gain control of the third world which represents 30% of the land surface of the Earth.


The World Conservation Bank led to the establishment of the Global Environment Facility (GEF) in 1991 with the United Nations Development Programme, the United Nations Environment Program, and the World Bank responsible for implementing projects. The GEF was restructured at the Rio Earth Summit in 1992 and moved out of the World Bank system to become a separate institution.

At the Rio Earth Summit in 1992, Al Gore led the U.S. Senate delegation, and Maurice Strong was Secretary-General at that Summit. Maurice Strong also helped establish the United Nations Foundation (UNF) along with Emma Rothschild and Ted Turner. Maurice Strong and Al Gore are both Foundation Directors of the World Economic Forum (WEF) that has an annual meeting in Davos, Switzerland, for international bankers, business leaders, political leaders, selected intellectuals, and journalists to discuss global issues. Maurice Strong can be found here on the Steering Committee of the WEF Global Governance Initiative. Maurice Strong is also a former Chairman of the World Resources Institute where Al Gore was a member of the board of directors.

Al Gore co-founded the company
Generation Investment Management (GIM) in 2004 to invest in Green Energy, Green Tech, and other companies producing so-called environmentally friendly products. In 2006, Al Gore released the documentary film 'An Inconvenient Truth' to a worldwide audience, and GIM investors raked the profits in.

The mission of GIM is to accelerate the transition towards
Sustainable Capitalism - an economic system within which businesses maximise long-term financial returns by incorporating all costs and benefits (environmental, social and governance) in to pricing regardless of whether or not they are currently attributed with an economic 'price tag' by society.

GIM
partnership organisations include the United Nations Environmental Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI), UN Global Compact, and the Global Impact Investment Network. A 2010 report from J.P.Morgan and the Rockefeller Foundation estimated that profits up to $667 billion could be gained from Impact Investing by 2020. Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair is Chairman of the J.P. Morgan International Council. More information about Impact Investing can be found here.

In August 2003, Sir Brandon Gough became Chancellor of the University of East Anglia (UEA). In November 2009, hackers gained access to a server used by the UEA's Climatic Research Unit and stole a large quantity of data, anonymously posting online more than 1,000 emails and more than 2,000 other documents. Sceptics of anthropogenic global warming claimed that the data provided evidence that scientists were collaborating globally to manipulate climate data. Sir Brandon Gough had previously been Deputy Chairman of SG Warburg Group, Chairman of De la Rue, and Chair of Common Purpose Charitable Trust.

De La Rue is the world’s largest commercial banknote printer and passport manufacturer and works closely with governments, the BIS, central banks, and commercial organisations around the world. Rupert Middleton is Chief Operating Officer at De La Rue, and President of the British Printing Industry Federation. His wife, Julie Middleton, is Founder & CEO of Common Purpose Charitable Trust. You can read more about Rothschild and Common Purpose here.

In January 2011, E.L. Rothschild LLC, a private investment company owned by Sir Evelyn de Rothschild and his wife Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild acquired a 70% controlling stake in Weather Central, the world’s leading provider of interactive weather graphics and data services for television, web, and mobile. Weather Central was subsequently merged with The Weather Channel, formerly known as The Weather Company, which is owned by NBC Universal, Bain Capital, and Blackstone Group. Sir Evelyn de Rothschild talks here about a subsidiary of the Weather Channel called myweather.com which is also known as weather.co.uk.

Lord Jacob Rothschild is a member of the International Advisory Board at Blackstone Group, under whose umbrella BlackRock was founded. And according to 'The Economist', "[BlackRock] owns a stake in almost every listed company not just in America but globally. It is easily the biggest investor in the world, with $4.1 trillion of directly controlled assets (almost as much as all private-equity and hedge funds put together) and another $11 trillion it oversees through its trading platform, Aladdin."
