Quotes – European heads of state

“How many people do you have to kill before you qualify to be described as a mass murderer and a war criminal? One hundred thousand? More than enough, I would have thought. Therefore it is just that [George W.] Bush and [Tony] Blair be arraigned before the International Criminal Court of Justice. But Bush has been clever. He has not ratified the International Criminal Court of Justice. Therefore if any American soldier or for that matter politician finds himself in the dock Bush has warned that he will send in the marines. But Tony Blair has ratified the Court and is therefore available for prosecution. We can let the Court have his address if they’re interested. It is Number 10, Downing Street, London.”
– Harold Pinter’s Noble Lecture, December 7, 2005

“Tony Blair’s contribution to the betterment of mankind, has included joining the United States in the Afghanistan invasion and between 1997 and 2003, in the silent cull of an average of six thousand Iraqi children a month [sanctions], instructing Britain’s UN officials to veto everything from vaccines to ventolin, insulin to incubators and intubators, paper to pencils, female hygiene appliances, to aids for children at the schools for the blind and deaf. A further million Iraqis have died since the invasion, almost certainly an underestimate…
Tony Blair has profiteered as a result of the Iraq War in which so many hundreds of thousands of people died. in the league of shame, Tony Blair is arguably the worst of them all.”
– Peter Osborne, March 2010

“The corporate-dominated economy and the transnational corporate state had consolidated its power over almost every aspect of public and private life, and under a formal globalization movement the transnational corporations were extending their tentacles all over the planet.
Footsoldiers like Margaret Thatcher, Ronald Reagan, the ever-dutiful Bush family, Helmut Kohl, and a list of Japanese leaders had diligently kept the faith. Working with the timeworn International Monetary Fund (IMF), the World Bank and ultimately with the new engine of globalization, the World Trade Organization, they ensured that the interests of capital were nowhere endangered by the needs of the world’s three billion poor to eat, have shelter, clothing, sanitation, medical care, and education.”
– William F. Pepper in his book “An Act of State: the Execution of Martin Luther King”

“Tony Blair is a glorified salesman, selling the same snake oil to different customers.
First, he is [in Israel] to provide a façade of Western concern about mending the Middle East. He suggests that the West is committed to action even as it fails to intervene and the situation of the Palestinians generally, and those in Gaza in particular, deteriorates rapidly. He sells us the continuing dispossession of the Palestinians in a bottle labelled “peace”.
He is also here as a sort of European proconsul to advise the Americans on how to repackage their policies. The US has become aware that it has lost all credibility with the rest of the world on this issue. Blair’s job is to redesign the bottle labelled “US honest broker” so that we will be prepared to buy the product again.
His next task is to try to wheedle out of Israel any minor concession he can secure on behalf of the Palestinians and persuade Tel Aviv to cooperate in selling an empty bottle labelled “hope” as a breakthrough in the peace process.
And finally, he is here to create the impression that his chief task is to defend the interests of the Palestinians. To this end, he collects the three bottles, puts them in some pretty wrapping paper and writes on the label “Palestinian state”.”
– Jonathan Cook, 2010

“The corruption and inhumanity under Margaret Thatcher knew no borders. When she came to power in 1979, Thatcher demanded a total ban on exports of milk to Vietnam. The American invasion had left a third of Vietnamese children malnourished. I witnessed many distressing sights, including infants going blind from a lack of vitamins. “I cannot tolerate this,” said an anguished doctor in a Saigon paediatric hospital, as we looked at a dying boy. Oxfam and Save the Children had made clear to the British government the gravity of the emergency. An embargo led by the US had forced up the local price of a kilo of milk up to ten times that of a kilo of meat. Many children could have been restored with milk. Thatcher’s ban held.”
– John Pilger

“In Cambodia, Margaret Thatcher left a trail of blood, secretly. In 1980, she demanded that the defunct Pol Pot regime – the killers of 1.7 million people – retain its “right” to represent their victims at the UN. Her policy was vengeance on Cambodia’s liberator, Vietnam. The British representative was instructed to vote with Pol Pot at the World Health Organisation, thereby preventing it from providing help to where it was needed more than anywhere on earth.”
– John Pilger

“In his arms-to-Iraq enquiry, Lord Richard Scott heard evidence that an entire tier of the Thatcher government, from senior civil servants to ministers, had lied and broken the law in selling weapons to Saddam Hussein. These were her “boys”. Thumb through old copies of the Baghdad Observer, and there are pictures of her boys, mostly cabinet ministers, on the front page sitting with Saddam on his famous white couch.”
– John Pilger

“I am strongly in favor of using poisoned gas against uncivilized tribes. The moral effect should be good…and it would spread a lively terror.”
– Winston Churchill

“In time of war, the truth is so precious it must be attended by a bodyguard of lies.”
– Winston Churchill

“The death of one man is a tragedy. The death of millions is a statistic.”
– Winston Churchill

“The worst criminals of our time are the US and UK governments. Both are devoid of all integrity, all honor, all mercy, all humanity. Many members of both governments would have made perfect functionaries in Stalinist Russia or Nazi Germany.”
– Paul Craig Roberts

Quotes – Kings and queens and such

“At the center of oligarchy is the idea that certain families are born to rule as an arbitrary elite, while the vast majority of any given population is condemned to oppression, serfdom, or slavery. Oligarchs identify wealth purely in money terms, and practice usury, monetarism, and looting…
The essence of oligarchism is summed up in the idea of the empire, in which an elite identifying itself as a master race rules over a degraded mass of slaves or other oppressed victims. If oligarchical methods are allowed to dominate human affairs, they always create a breakdown crisis of civilization, with economic depression, war, famine, plague, and pestilence. A pillar of the oligarchical system is the family fortune. The continuity of the family fortune which earns money through usury and looting is often more important than the biological continuity across generations of the family that owns the fortune.”
-“The Venetian Black Nobility and the Concept of Oligarchy” an article by Dr. Webster Griffin Tarpley & James Higham

“Every British monarch since 1729 benefited immensely from the drug trade and this holds good for the present occupant of the throne.”
– John Coleman in his book The Committee of 300

“A part of the fortune of the Queen of England comes from drug trafficking.”
– Jacques Cheminade, candidate for the 2012 French presidential election

“The Dutch and British monarchs who control Royal Dutch merged their company with the Oppenheimer and Samuel’s Shell Oil and Nobel and Rothschild’s Far East Trading. Royal Dutch/Shell was born. Queen Juliana of the Dutch House of Orange and Lord Victor Rothschild are the two largest shareholders of Royal Dutch/Shell…
By 1920 Exxon, BP and Royal Dutch/Shell dominated the world’s booming oil business, with the Rockefeller and Rothschild families and the British and Dutch royals owning most of stock in the [Four] Horsemen [of oil – Exxon, RoyalDutch/Shell, Chevron, Britsh Petroleum].”
– Dean Henderson in his book “Big Oil & Their Bankers In The Persian Gulf”

“The Black Nobility are the oligarchic families of Venice and Genoa, who in the 12th century held privileged trading rights (monopolies). The first of three crusades, from 1063 to 1123, established the power of the Venetian Black Nobility and solidified the power of the wealthy ruling class. In 1204 the oligarchic families parceled out feudal enclaves to their members, and from this date, they built up power until government became a closed corporation of the leading Black Nobility families.
The European Black Nobility is responsible for the insidious entanglements of numerous secret societies and organizations, which are backed with high finance and powerful political connections. Such organizations include: Trilateral Commission, Bilderberg Group, Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), United Nations, International Monetary Fund (IMF), World Bank, Bank of International Settlements (BIS), Club of Rome, Chatham House, and many others. Present day European Black Nobility families are connected with the House of Guelph, one of the original Black Nobility families of Venice from which the House of Windsor and thus the present Queen of the United Kingdom Elizabeth II descends.”
– John Coleman in his book The Committee of 300

“The bulwark of the British financial oligarchy lies in its ageless and self-perpetuating nature, its long-range planning and prescience, its facility to outwait and break the patience of its opponents. The transient and temporal statesmen of Europe and particularly of Britain itself, who have attempted to curb this monstrosity have all been defeated by their limited tenure of confidence. Obligated to show action and results in a too short span of years, they have been outwitted and outwaited, deluged with irritants and difficulties; eventually obliged to temporize and retreat. There are few who have opposed them in Britain and America, without coming to a disgraceful end, but many, who served them well, have also profited well.”
– E.C. Knuth in his book The Empire of The City, 1946

“The intent and purpose of the Committee of 300 is One World Government and a one-unit monetary system, under permanent non-elected hereditary oligarchists. In this One World system, population will be limited by restrictions on the number of children per family, diseases, wars, and famines, until one billion people who are useful to the ruling class, in areas which will be strictly and clearly defined, remain as the total world population.
There will be no middle class, only rulers and the servants. All laws will be uniform under a legal system of world courts practicing the same unified code of laws, backed up by a One World Government police force and a One World unified military. Those who are obedient and subservient to the One World Government will be rewarded with the means to live; those who are rebellious will simply be starved to death or be declared outlaws and targeted for elimination.”
– John Coleman in his book The Committee of 300

“In fourteen years Leopold [II King of Belgium] has deliberately destroyed more lives [in the Belgian Congo] than have suffered death on all the battlefields of this planet for the past thousand years. In this vast statement I am well within the mark, several millions of lives with the mark. It is curious that the most advanced and most enlightened century of all the centuries the sun has looked upon should have the ghastly distinction of having produced this moldy and peity-mouthing hypocrite, this bloody monster whose mate is not findable in human history anywhere, and whose personality will surely shame hell itself when he arrives there–which will be soon, let us hope and trust.”
– Mark Twain in his book Eruption

“Beside [Belgian King] Leopold II – Nero, Caligula, Attilo, Torquemada, Genghis Khan and such killers of men are mere amateurs.”
– statement published in the New York World, December 3, 1905

“I do not want to miss a good chance of getting us a slice of this magnificent African cake.”
– Leopold II, King of Belgium – from 1865 to 1909

“I am the state… It is legal because I wish it.”
– Louis XIV, King of France, 1643-1715

“The people of England and indeed the English-speaking world are so brainwashed that they believe the British Royal Family is just a nice, harmless and colorful institution, and so fail to realize just how corrupt, and how all-pervading is this institution called the British Monarchy.”
– John Coleman in his book The Committee of 300

“The development of democracy in Europe and the United States took place over centuries and involved a long-drawn-out struggle between pathologically disordered and entrenched elites and the majority populations. The process was protracted and violent, primarily because it is not in the nature of those with dangerous personality disorders to compromise or relinquish power readily.”
– Ian Hughes

Quotes – Dictators

“This and no other is the root from which a tyrant springs; when he first appears he is a protector.”
– Plato

“The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power. Not wealth or luxury or long life or happiness: only power, pure power.
We are different from all the oligarchies of the past, in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just round the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal.
We are not like that. We know that no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power.”
– George Orwell in his book 1984

“The easiest way to gain control of a population is to carry out acts of terror. [The public] will clamor for such laws if their personal security is threatened.”
– Josef Stalin

“Terrorism is the best political weapon for nothing drives people harder than a fear of sudden death.”
– Adolf Hitler

“Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.”
– Mao Zedong

“Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power.”
– Benito Mussolini

“If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.”
– Adolf Hitler

“In Africa … the absence of properly functioning states leaves individuals at the mercy of thugs and thieves, whether in the form of the brutality of armed militias or the corruption of government officials… The persistence of poverty in Africa is thwarting attempts to achieve the levels of health and education, the cultures of freedom and autonomy, the institutions of law and democratic governance, and the conditions for sustainable economic growth which are needed to finally remove the continent’s pathological elites from power… Africa will need assistance to escape the tyranny of its pathological elites. A necessary first step is for rich nations to cease assisting Africa’s psychopaths, by refraining from hiding their fortunes in Western banks and from selling arms to tyrants to terrorise their own populations.”
– Ian Hughes

“In any country there must be people who have to die. They are the sacrifices any nation has to make to achieve law and order.”
– Idi Amin

“I did not join the resistance movement to kill people, to kill the nation. Look at me now. Am I a savage person? My conscience is clear.”
– Pol Pot

“In the Middle East, Washington has, since the 1950s, followed the British imperial preference for Arab aristocrats by cultivating allies that included a shah (Iran), sultans (Abu Dhabi, Oman), emirs (Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, Dubai), and kings (Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Morocco). Across this vast, volatile region from Morocco to Iran, Washington courted these royalist regimes with military alliances, U.S. weapons systems, CIA support for local security, a safe American haven for their capital, and special favors for their elites, including access to educational institutions in the U.S. or Department of Defense overseas schools for their children.”
– Alfred W. McCoy and Brett Reilly

“I don’t want educated people. I want oxen.”
– Anastasio Somoza Sr, dictator of Nicaragua, 1936

“UN documents and testimony now in evidence at the UN Rwanda Tribunal, show that [Rwandan President Paul] Kagame, himself, touched off the “Rwanda genocide” by assassinating the former Rwandan President and launching an assault to seize power within minutes after shooting down President Habyarimana’s plane [in] 1994. … Because Kagame’s Rwanda crimes were covered-up by the U.S. in 1994, and because he was not prosecuted at the ICTR [International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda] for the assassination of the previous president in 1994, he has been free to rape the Congo of its riches and to massacre millions.”
– Peter Erlinder

“The mastermind of the genocide of the Rwandan interior Tutsis is [Paul] Kagame himself.”
– Guillaume Murere

“Major General Paul Kagame had personally ordered the shooting down of [Rwandan] President Habyarimana’s plane with a view to taking control of the country. He was fully aware that the assassination of Habyarimana would unleash “a genocide” against Tutsi civilians… Kagame was an instrument of Washington. The loss of African lives did not matter. The civil war in Rwanda and the ethnic massacres were an integral part of US foreign policy, carefully staged in accordance with precise strategic and economic objectives.”
– Michel Chossudovsky

“Psychopaths, pathological narcissists, and people with severe paranoid personality are psychologically incapable of conceiving of the fundamental essentials of democratic citizenship and will therefore be at the vanguard of those opposed to the success of democratisation.”
– Ian Hughes

Quotes – Religious leaders

“When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.”
– Sinclair Lewis

“The Vatican has billions of shares in the most powerful international corporations… The wealth of the Vatican in the U.S. alone, is greater than that of the five wealthiest giant corporations of the country. When to that is added all the real estate, property, stocks and shares abroad, then the staggering accumulation of the wealth of the Catholic church becomes so formidable as to defy any rational assessment… The Catholic church is the biggest financial power, wealth accumulator and property owner in existence. She is a greater possessor of material riches than any other single institution, corporation, bank, giant trust, government or state of the whole globe. The pope, as the visible ruler of this immense amassment of wealth, is consequently the richest individual of the twentieth century. No one can realistically assess how much he is worth in terms of billions of dollars.”
– from the book The Vatican Billions by Avro Manhattan, 1983

“We have the ability to take him out [Venezuelan President Hugo Chevez], and I think the time has come that we exercise that ability… If he thinks we’re trying to assassinate him, I think that we really ought to go ahead and do it. It’s a whole lot cheaper than starting a war … and I don’t think any oil shipments will stop.”
– Pat Robertson

“Christians, like slaves and soldiers, ask no questions.”
– Jerry Falwell

“Not a single leader of the Third Reich – not even Hitler himself – was ever excommunicated.”
– Sam Harris in his book The End of Faith

“Representative democracy, exercised within the context of the separation of church and state, and the protection of individual human rights, can act as safeguards against the destructive power of religion. Where these safeguards are not in place, religion becomes a simple and effective route for the pathological minority to seize power and tyrannise societies.”
– Ian Hughes

“AIDS is not just God’s punishment for homosexuals; it is God’s punishment for the society that tolerates homosexuals.”
– Jerry Falwell

“Most religions offer no valid mechanism by which their core beliefs can be tested and revised, each new generation of believers is condemned to inherit the superstitions and tribal hatreds of its predecessors.”
– Sam Harris in his book The End of Faith

“Since most if not all ‘great’ religions are constructed on falsehoods, compulsive liars make the perfect proselytizers. A look at recently created religions such as Mormonism and Scientology show their founders, Joseph Smith and L.Ron Hubbard respectively, were at least compulsive liars, and more likely full-blown psychopaths. Charismatic cult leaders such as Jim Jones and Sung Yung Moon were indeed psychopaths, while televangelist preachers that rake in millions from their gullible flocks are at best con artists of the highest caliber.”
– Stefan H. Verstappen

Quotes re “philanthropic foundations” – Carnegie, Ford, Gates, Rockefeller, Soros

“The US and UK governments’ relentless backing for the global spread of genetically modified seeds was in fact the implementation of a decades long policy of the Rockefeller Foundation since the 1930’s, when it funded Nazi eugenics research — i.e. mass-scale population reduction, and control of darker-skinned races by an Anglo-Saxon white elite. As some of these circles saw it, war as a means of population reduction was costly and not that efficient.”
– F. William Engdahl in Seeds of Destuction

“First we got population. The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s headed up to about 9 billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care, reproductive health services, we lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.”
– Bill Gates

“The global financial elite of the Ford, Carnegie and Rockefeller foundations are making the plans for a one world government. The real name of the game is 1984. We will have systematic population reduction, forced sterilization or anything else which the planners deem necessary to establish absolute control in their humanitarian utopia. But to enforce these plans, you must have an all-powerful world government.”
– Gary Allen in None Dare Call It Conspiracy

“The Rockefeller Foundation, working with John D. Rockefeller Ill’s Population Council, the World Bank, the UN Development Program and the Ford Foundation, and others had been working with the WHO [World Health Organization] for 20 years to develop an anti-fertility vaccine using tetanus as well as with other vaccines.”
– F. William Engdahl

“The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation have been focused on reducing the population of poorer countries through the promotion of killer drugs such as Depo-Provera. The foundation is partnering with the British government to raise $4 billion to finance their birth control plan by 2020. This is under the guise of family planning. The foundation is also known to fund an NGO committed to children vaccination known as Gavi. This vaccine has been used on children in Malawi, India and Pakistan. In Malawi, these kids were vaccinated at gunpoint in 2011; Non-polio paralysis struck some of the kids that were vaccinated.”
– Dave Mihalovic

“The Rockefeller foundation scientists developed the idea of molecular biology from the fundamental assumption that almost all human problems could be “solved” by genetic and chemical manipulation… The people in and around the Rockefeller institutions saw it as the ultimate means of social control and social engineering — eugenics.”
– F. William Engdahl in Seeds of Destuction

“The organization of tax-exempt fortunes of international financiers into foundations was to be used for educational, scientific, and other public purposes… The inheritance tax drove the great private fortunes dominated by Wall Street into tax-exempt foundations, which became a major link in the Establishment network between Wall Street, the Ivy League, and the federal government… The foundations managed to acquire control over the primary Ivy League colleges, including Harvard, Yale, Columbia, and Princeton.”
– Carroll Quigley in Tragedy and Hope

“The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is committing 10 billion dollars over the next ten years to make it the most aggressive decade ever to roll out new vaccines to poor nations around the world. The commitment will also effectively create widespread fertility problems across vaccinated populations.”
– Dave Mihalovic

“After years of controversy in the United States, the use of oral polio vaccine (OPV) was discontinued in 2000 due to its proven link with vaccine-derived poliovirus (VDPV). The use of an injected and inactivated polio vaccine (IPV) replaced its usage in the Western world, while oral polio vaccine continues to be used in the developing world… There was a claim in the Indian medical press [April 2012] that some 47,500 children had been paralyzed as a direct result of the polio vaccination campaign that had swept through their populous country. India’s National Polio Surveillance Project found that a sharp rise in the cases of non-polio paralysis correlated with areas where doses of oral polio vaccine were also increased… The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the UN’s World Health Organization knew that oral polio vaccines caused paralysis.”
– Aaron Dykes

Quotes – Thomas Friedman

“Twelve days of surgical bombing was never going to turn Serbia around… Let’s see what 12 weeks of less than surgical bombing does. Give war a chance… It should be lights out in Belgrade (Yugoslavia): Every power grid, water pipe, bridge, road and war-related factory has to be targeted.”

“Blow up a different power station in Iraq every week, so no one knows when the lights will go off or who’s in charge… The U.S. has to make clear to Iraq and U.S. allies that… America will use force, without negotiation, hesitation, or UN approval.”

“It turns out many of those Afghan ‘civilians’ were praying for another dose of B-52s to liberate them from the Taliban, casualties or not.”

“We need to go into the heart of their world [Palestinians] and beat their brains out, in order to burst this bubble.”

“U.S. power is not being used in Iraq for oil, or imperialism, or to shore up a corrupt status quo.”

“Any war we launch in Iraq will certainly be about oil.”

“The hidden hand of the market will never work without a hidden fist-McDonald’s cannot flourish without McDonnell Douglas, the builder of the F-15. And the hidden fist that keeps the world safe for Silicon Valley’s technologies is called the United States Army, Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps.”

“Let’s all take a deep breath and repeat after me: Give war [in Afghanistan] a chance.”

“The most powerful agent pressuring other countries to open their markets for free trade and free investments is Uncle Sam, and America’s global armed forces keep these markets and sea lanes open for this era of globalization, just as the British navy did for the era of globalization in the nineteenth century.”

“I believe globalization did us all a favor by melting down the economies of Thailand, Korea, Malaysia, Indonesia, Mexico, Russia, and Brazil in the 1990s.”

“It [Iraq War] might be over in a week, it might be over in a month, it might be over in six months, but what’s the rush?”

“Thomas Friedman’s collected works constitute a veritable dictionary of the market-populist myths of the age, awesome in its inclusiveness: Enthusiasm for the “rebranding’ of Britain, pointless ponderings about the physical weight of each country’s GNP, facile equating of Great Society America with the Soviet Union. Each of them is preposterous in its own way, but thrown together they make a truly dispiriting impression… This is what the ruling class calls thinking, that this handful of pathetic, palpably untrue prejudices are all they have to guide them as they shuttle back and forth between the State Department and the big think tanks, discussing what they mean to do with us and how they plan to dispose of our country.”
– Thomas Frank

“The weakening of labor pleases Thomas Friedman, who mentions this as one of Thatcher’s accomplishments. He regards Reagan’s breaking the air controllers strike in 1981 as his finest achievement, “helping break the hold of organized labor on the U.S. economy’.”
– Edward S. Herman

Quotes – The corporate media

“You can’t believe a word the American media says. If they say anything correct, it’s just an accident.”
– Paul Craig Roberts, Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan Administration and former editor of the Wall Street Journal

“If the New World Order types had some kindness, some humanity, some morality perhaps One World Government is what we need. But mainly these are nasty people with a lust for money and a ruthless disregard for human suffering. Sadly this is all made possible by a mainstream media that is owned and controlled by these very forces. Because the people who own media choose wherever it is that the light is to be shone. So the same stories and the same sound bites across six media conglomerates constitutes what the public is to learn about their world and their country.”
– Chris Pratt from his movie “Deception”

“Establishment journalists and media stars are not on the outside of the establishment, they are members of the establishment. They work for the largest corporations. They live in Washington. Socio-economically, their colleagues and partners and family members are people within the government, within the establishment. And what they want to do is to protect and defend the establishment, more than anything else. To protect the idea that the establishment is functioning properly. And so, their interest is to minimize the public anger and the public rage.”
– Glenn Greenwald

“Newscasters who want to keep their careers afloat learn the fine art of evasion. With great skill they skirt around the most important points of a story. With much finesse, they say a lot about very little, serving up heaps of junk news filled with so many empty calories and so few nutrients. Thus do they avoid offending those who wield politico-economic power.”
– Project Censored, 2004

“What the press do is they tell you lies, lies they already know you want to hear. The press can figure out what its readers or viewers believe, and make a hell of a living pandering to their egos and telling them that they’re smart. They lie and tell the audience they are right, and they never have to change your mind about anything. And the audience rewards them, lauding them and paying them money to keep hearing those sweet, self-serving lies.”
– Allan Uthman

“The people who own and control the mainstream media are never going to risk their salaries to explore the unanswered questions of 9-11 or the money trails of JP Morgan Chase Bank, GoldmanSachs, Citibank, Haliburton, Blackwater and Homeland Security, or the Rothschilds, or the Rockefellers or the secrecy of the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderberg Group, the Trilateral Commission, Skull and Bones, the Bushes and the Carlyle Group or our Federal Reserve System and it’s 12 private Federal Reserve Banks or the IMF or the World Bank.”
– Chris Pratt from his movie “Deception”

“If deliberate distortion of reality by corporate media could be effectively prosecuted in the United States, the entire industry would be behind bars.”
– Cynthia McKinney

“The American media does not serve the truth. It serves the government and the interest groups that empower the government. The function of the “mainstream media” is to sell products and to brainwash the audience for the government and interest groups. By subscribing to it, Americans support their own brainwashing.”

Paul Craig Roberts

“The owners of the Washington Post long ago acknowledged that the Post is the government’s voice to the people. In 1981, Katherine Graham, who owns the Post and Newsweek announced that her editors would ‘cooperate with the national security interests’. National security in this context means ‘CIA’.”

John Stockwell – former CIA official

“Americans have become perfect subjects for George Orwell’s Big Brother. They sit stupidly in front of the TV news or the New York Times or Washington Post and absorb the lies fed to them.”

Paul Craig Roberts – Assistant Secretary of the Treasury under Ronald Reagan and former editor of the Wall Street Journal

Quotes – The oil industry

“The Four Horsemen – British Petroleum, Royal Dutch Shell, ChevronTexaco, ExxonMobil – are the top four retailers of gas in the US and own every major pipeline in the world and the vast majority of oil tankers… During the 1970s Big Oil invested S2.4 billion in uranium exploration. Today they control over half the world’s uranium reserves, key to fueling nuclear power plants… Exxon Mobil is the leading coal producer in the US and has the second largest coal reserves.”
– Dean Henderson in his book Big Oil & Their Bankers In The Persian Gulf

“Big Oil, the big oil companies: Exxon-Exxon Mobil, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, BP/Shell, are the biggest companies operating in the United States. The profits are unparalleled, with the defense industry, pharmaceuticals, banks, you name it, no comparison.”
– Antonia Juhasz

“In 1975 Anthony Sampson penned “The Seven Sisters”…, bestowing a collective name on the shadowy oil cartel, which throughout its history has sought to eliminate competitors and control the world’s oil resource. After a tidal wave of mergers at the turn of the millennium, Sampson’s Seven Sisters were Four Horsemen: Exxon Mobil, Chevron Texaco, BP Amoco and Royal Dutch/Shell.”
– Dean Henderson in Big Oil & Their Bankers In The Persian Gulf

“The oil market is now cornered by five major companies – Exxon-Mobil, Chevron-Texaco, British Petroleum-Amoco-Arco, Royal Dutch Shell and Conoco-Phillips.”
– Ravi Batra, 2007

“Through a combination of joint ventures, tightly-held technological secrets, vertical and horizontal integration, manipulation of production sites, cheap labor, interlocking bank directorates and outright collusion; the Four Horsemen [of oil] … are now even more firmly in control of an increasingly oil-dependent world economy than they were 100 years ago. And the same old money families are still riding high in the saddle.”
– Dean Henderson in Big Oil & Their Bankers In The Persian Gulf

“The operating strategy of the Five Bullies [Exxon-Mobil, Chevron-Texaco, British Petroleum-Amoco-Arco, Royal Dutch Shell and Conoco-Phillips] is to force independent refiners out of business, tighten gasoline supplies, and then jack up the price. Finally, when the profit skyrockets, take ads in newspapers to claim that the profit is reasonable.”
– Ravi Batra, 2007

“The Four Horsemen of oil – British Petroleum, Royal Dutch Shell, ChevronTexaco, ExxonMobil – have interlocking directorates with the international mega-banks. Exxon Mobil shares board members with JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup, Deutsche Bank, Royal Bank of Canada and Prudential. Chevron Texaco has interlocks with Bank of America and JP Morgan Chase. BP Amoco shares directors with JP Morgan Chase. RoyalDutch /Shell has ties with Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase, N. M. Rothschild & Sons and Bank of England.
– Dean Henderson in Big Oil & Their Bankers In The Persian Gulf

“In 1941, Standard Oil of New Jersey, later renamed Exxon, was the largest oil company in the world. It controlled 84% of the US petroleum market. Its bank was Chase Bank, and its main owners were the Rockefeller group.”
– F. William Engdahl

“The Dutch and British monarchs who control Royal Dutch merged their company with the Oppenheimer and Samuel’s Shell Oil and Nobel and Rothschild’s Far East Trading. Royal Dutch/Shell was born. Queen Juliana of the Dutch House of Orange and Lord Victor Rothschild are the two largest shareholders of Royal Dutch/Shell…
By 1920 Exxon, BP and Royal Dutch/Shell dominated the world’s booming oil business, with the Rockefeller and Rothschild families and the British and Dutch royals owning most of stock in the Horsemen. Two other Rockefeller babies Mobil and Chevron, weren’t far behind the Big Three.”

“There is no question that HIV was introduced into the U.S. male homosexual population via the gay hepatitis B vaccine experiment that took place between 1978 and 1981… Not surprisingly, the government has refused to release data on the number of AIDS deaths that have occured in the large group of gay men who initially volunteered for the vaccine experiment.”

“Thimserosal used as a preservative in vaccines is likely related to the autism epidemic. This epidemic in all probability may have been prevented or curtailed had the FDA not been asleep at the switch regarding the lack of safety data regarding injected thimerosal and the sharp rise of infant exposure to his known neurotoxin. Our public health agencies’ failure to act is indicative of institutional malfeasance for self-protection and misplaced protectionism of the pharmaceutical industry.”
– Subcommittee on Human Rights and Wellness in the House’s Committee on Government Reform, May 2003

“You couldn’t even construct a study that shows Thimerosal is safe. It’s just too damn toxic. If you inject Thimerosal into an animal, its brain will sicken. If you apply it to living tissue, the cells die. If you put it in a petri dish, the culture dies. Knowing these things, it would be shocking if one culd inject it into an infant without coausing damage…
The biological case against Thimerosal is so dramatically overwhelming anymore that only a very foolish or a very dishonest person with the credentials to understand this research would say that Thimerosal wan’t most likely the cause of autism.

Quotes – Monsanto et al

“Monsanto should not have to vouchsafe the safety of biotech food. Our interest is in selling as much of it as possible. Assuring its safety is the F.D.A’s [Food and Drug Administration] job.”
– Phil Angell, Monsanto’s director of corporate communications

“The US and UK governments’ relentless backing for the global spread of genetically modified seeds was in fact the implementation of a decades long policy of the Rockefeller Foundation since the 1930’s, when it funded Nazi eugenics research — i.e. mass-scale population reduction, and control of darker-skinned races by an Anglo-Saxon white elite. As some of these circles saw it, war as a means of population reduction was costly and not that efficient.”
– F. William Engdahl in his book Seeds of Destuction

“The hope of the biotech industry is that over time, the market is so flooded that there’s nothing you can do about it. You just sort of surrender.”
– A biotech consultant – in the book Seeds of Deception by Jeffrey M. Smith

“The problems with GM foods may be irreversible and the true effects may only be seen well in the future. The situation is like the tobacco industry. They knew about it but they suppressed that information. They created misleading evidence that showed that the problem wasn’t so serious. And all the time they knew how bad it was. Tobacco is bad enough. But genetic modification, if it is going to be problematic, if it is going to cause us real health problems, then tobacco will be nothing in comparison with this. The size of genetic modification and problems it may cause us are tremendous.”
– Dr. Arpad Pusztai, researcher and the world’s expert on lectins

“Russian biologist Alexey V. Surov and his colleagues, of the Institute of Ecology and Evolution of the Russian Academy of Sciences and the National Association for Gene Security, set out to discover if Monsanto’s genetically modified (GM) soy, grown on 91% of US soybean fields, leads to problems in growth or reproduction. After feeding hamsters for two years over three generations, those on the GM diet, and especially the group on the maximum GM soy diet, showed devastating results. By the third generation, most GM soy-fed hamsters lost the ability to have babies.”
