Zbigniew Brzezinksi (Trilateral Commission co-founder with David Rockefeller) and Madeleine Albright (Albright Stonebridge Group, co-chaired with Sandy Berger) on CNN, advocating for the Munich analogy of Russia's securing it's warm water port in the Crimea.

Meanwhile...

Madeleine Albright is a co-investor with George Soros and Lord Jacob Rothschild (4th Baron Rothschild in the British peerage, father of Nat Rothschild (connected to Xstrata, Glencore, Bumi, business partner of Tony Hayward of BP), in a $350 million mobile phone mast company in Africa.

There are huge business interests in the back of this story, as well as
the struggle for global supremacy.

In Central Asia, the Rothschild family has a long history of involvement in oil, for instance they owned the BAKU-BATOUM pipeline that connects the Caspian Sea with the Black Sea. Rothschild Bank controlled 42% of the oil flowing out of Baku, while Baku supplied 50% of the world's oil, by 1901.

U.S. hedge fund manager, George Soros, has tied up with Madeline Albright and Jacob Rothschild, to set up a company which will build mobile masts in Africa, Financial News reports. The three will together invest $350 million to launch Helios Towers Africa.

Albright's emerging markets private equity firm, Albright Capital Management, and Rothschild's RIT Capital Partners will back the venture. The fourth, and lead, co-investor in the company will be funds advised by Helios Investment Partners. The company plans to build more than 5,000 masts in six countries outside of Nigeria.

Soros Joins Top Names in African Deal
By Lauren Mills

What unites once the world’s most powerful foreign secretary, once the world’s most powerful hedge fund manager and a scion of perhaps once the world’s most powerful banking dynasty? The answer, surprisingly, is a London-based private equity manager investing in Africa, writes James Mawson, editor of Private Equity News.

Helios Investment Partners, an independent firm set up five years ago by two former executives from TPG Capital, a large and very influential buyout group, has pulled off the feat of bringing George Soros, Madeleine Albright and Jacob Rothschild into the same deal to open up mobile phones to the other half of the African population without telecommunication access.
n
As co-investors in Helios Towers Africa, the four have committed an initial $350m in equity to buy mobile phone masts in the contient outside of Nigeria and boost telecoms penetration rates beyond 45%.

Temitope Lawani, a co-founder of Helios, said the firm had previously invested with Soros Strategic Partners, the private equity operation of the hedge fund manager who effectively forced the devaluation of sterling more than a decade earlier, in Africa. Soros has been a successful backer of US mobile phone towers, having bought Sprint’s 3,000 masts a few years before, and knows the sector well.

Albright and Rothschild are big investors in emerging markets: Madeline through raising $350m for the Albright Capital Markets fund in 2007, while Lord Rothschild has family investments in emerging markets and runs RIT Capital Partners, a listed investment company.

Lawani said as a result of their expertise, Helios had approached them to join as coinvestors in Helios Towers Africa.

It's just masochistic to watch in horror as our non-physically-based-economy's markets are played by financial monsters, with priviledges and inside info, allowing them to buy up our ENTIRE physical world, piece-by-piece, eventually leaving us with nothing but the Dark Ages, again. I wonder if a new strain of "The Plague" is being perfected in some lab, somewhere...

Yep, norske, this is one of those "chilling moments" when truth is spoken by mistake. "We think the price is worth it." We are not paying any of the bills, but we are willing to take what we see as the gains at "their" loss. Straight from the "Political Realism" Cliffnotes.

Back in the day, I was doing some serious scholarship around Niebuhr, Hans Morgenthau, and "political realism" as a sort of post-liberal appreciation of "power" as the moral ground rather than "the problem." There was an excellent lab in process in the Bay Area and the nation at the time to motivate the thinking, so my appreciation for pacifism and peacemaking has always been run though a serious reality and practicality screen before I talk about the Power of Love or the Necessity of Justice in a Real World.

The other point to make, of course, is that "realism" is more about poetry than prose. It is a great goal, but a claim one should never make for oneself without the "fear of God." Being a confirmed "realist" becomes your own ideological box. Recognizing that we are all exploring the Mystery of Reality and not arriving at the end of that journey helps keep these claims provisional or honorific. We can celebrate what we find unmasking reality, but we also know there is a lot more we don't know about this thing called Love, or Truth, or Power, or .....

On Nat's dad, Jacob Rotschild, 4th Baron Rothschild, and the control of Yukos in Russia, and their co-investor Oleg Deripaska of EN+ Group and Rusal:

(WASHINGTON TIMES) Arrested oil tycoon passed shares to banker
The Washington Times
Sunday, November 2, 2003

LONDON (Agence France-Presse) — Control of Mikhail Khodorkovsky’s shares in the Russian oil giant Yukos have passed to renowned banker Jacob Rothschild, under a deal they concluded prior to Mr. Khodorkovsky’s arrest, the Sunday Times reported.

Voting rights to the shares passed to Mr. Rothschild, 67, under a “previously unknown arrangement” designed to take effect in the event that Mr. Khodorkovsky could no longer “act as a beneficiary” of the shares, it said.

Mr. Khodorkovsky, 40, whom Russian authorities arrested at gunpoint and jailed pending further investigation last week, was said by the Sunday Times to have made the arrangement with Mr. Rothschild when he realized he was facing arrest.

Mr. Rothschild now controls the voting rights on a stake in Yukos worth almost $13.5 billion, the newspaper said in a dispatch from Moscow.

Mr. Khodorkovsky owns 4 percent of Yukos directly and 22 percent through a trust of which he is the sole beneficiary, according to Russian analysts.

From the figures reported in the Sunday Times, it appeared Mr. Rothschild had received control of all Mr. Khodorkovsky’s shares.

The two have known each other for years “through their mutual love of the arts” and their positions as directors of the Open Russia Foundation, Yukos’ philanthropic branch, it said.

Russian authorities Thursday froze billions of dollars of shares held by Mr. Khodorkovsky and his top lieutenants in Yukos — throwing control of the country’s largest oil company into limbo and causing frenzied selling on financial markets.

Russian prosecutors said owners of the shares are still entitled to dividends and retain voting rights, but can no longer sell their stakes.

They said the freeze was necessary as collateral for the $1 billion that Mr. Khodorkovsky and his associates are accused of misappropriating during the 1990s.

Mr. Rothschild is the British head of Europe’s wealthy and influential Rothschild family, and runs his own investment empire.

Just a correction. Oleg Deripaska is a co-investor with Nat Rothschild, while Mikhail Khodorkovsky is a co-investor with Jacob, 4th Baron Rothschild. More on the Open Russia Foundation here at Sourcewatch.

According The Real Crime of M. Khodorkovsky, by F. William Engdahl here at Voltairenet:

But there was more. Khodorkovsky built some impressive ties in the West. With his new billions in effect stolen from the Russian people, he made some powerful friends. He set up a foundation modeled on US billionaire George Soros’ Open Society, calling it the Open Russia Foundation. He invited two powerful Westerners to its board —Henry Kissinger and Jacob Lord Rothschild. Then he set about to develop ties with some of the most powerful circles in Washington where he was named to the Advisory Board of the secretive private equity firm, Carlyle Group where he attended board meetings with fellow advisors such as George H.W. Bush and James Baker III.

However, the real crime that landed Khodorkovsky behind Russian bars was the fact that he was in the middle of making a US-backed coup d’etat to capture the Russian presidency in planned 2004 Russian Duma elections. Khodorkovsky was in the process of using his enormous wealth to buy enough seats in the coming Duma elections that he could change Russian laws regarding ownership of oil in the ground and of pipelines transporting same. In addition he planned to directly challenge Putin and become Russian President. As part of the horse trade that won Putin the tacit support of the wealthy so-called Russian Oligarchs, Putin had extracted agreement that they be allowed to hold on to their wealth provided they repatriate a share back into Russia and provided they not interfere in domestic Russian politics with their wealth. Most oligarchs agreed, as did Khodorkovsky at the time. They remain established Russian businessmen. Khodorkovsky did not.

In the youtube news interview in the main blog post-- EGAD, Brzezinski just SPINS reality until it is so ABLUR, as to be unrecognizeable from the real events!

1. Zbigniew portrays the Russians as promoting destabilizing forces within Ukraine -- when in actuality it has been the USA/NATO working with PUTSCHISTS within Ukraine! It has been the USA sending in $5 billions to do this dirty work etc. That Zbigniew can say this when he knows this is exactly the type of protocol he himself set forth in destablizing Afghanistan in the 1970s, causing Russia a decade of war and grief. It is disgusting how this shrivelled old man can lie into the TV camera and point suspicion at Russia for USA policy that HE -- ZBIGNIEW B.himself -- perpetrated in Afghnistan and no doubt is privy to in regards to all goings on between USA/NATO and the rightwingers who have taken over the Ukraine government! (What is the screwy logic Z.B. is trying to sell there, anyway? Why would Russia want yet another destabilized country on its borders? Putin is already making statements broadcast world-wide that the destabilization in the Middle East perpetrated by the West and its oil-money-allies in the royalist Emirates and the Sauds cannot lead to any solid future. I agree from the standpoint that the Neocon plan failed in Iraq and will continue to fail to bring a predictable order to any region NEOCON DISASTER CAPITALISM DESTABILIZATION is applied.)

2 Zbigniew insists that the PUTSCHISTS should be recognized as "the legitimate government of Ukraine". When Brzezinski insists that PUTSCHISTS be considered "legitimate", he is defying the definition of 'legitimate'! And the fact that subesquent to this broadcast, President Obama was puppet enough to do Zbigniew B.'s bidding is a disgusting proof that fascistic ideology is contiguous between our own government's so-called leaders and the Putschists of Ukraine!

3. Without skipping a beat, Zbigniew -- like all those old white rich men who repeatedly send the young to their death in unnecessary wars for oil profits and hegemony -- insists that NATO put together "plans" to provide a rapid response to anything Russia/Putin may do that talking heads like Brzezinski can construe to be war-worthy. Disgusting.

Brzezinski and Albright are ghouls walking the Earth. How else can this frontman and frontwoman for the One Percent New World Order Cabal be described?!

DRC2,

RC, I only want to take the "Jewish" out of bankster as we watch what is going on in "finance." If there is anyone who can grab the nomination away from the DLC, please do.

And quite rightly, I wouldn't even say 'bankers' or 'wall street'. People in this class think and operate way beyond any kind of religion or loyalty to any country.

The way I do it, is to only look at

- Corporation's power structure - CEO's, Chairman of the board, COO's, CFO's
- Relatives - sons/daughters, brothers/sisters, parents/grandparents.
- Business associates - families, banks, organisations

99% of the time, looking at religion and ethnicity only obscure what is going on.

When you follow the money and businesses, you can find out who is who in capitalism.

At the same time, it is very instructive to see the business model that these old money families have perfected and use over and over again. Like these 3-way or 4-way investment vehicles, for lack of a better word.

Nora,

The Rothschilds are old hands at PRIVATIZATION. In 1873 they privatized the Spanish government's RIO TINTO copper mines.

Quite right, and it used to be on the Rio Tinto website too, but the file has been removed.

In the UK, at the heart of privatisation in the 1980s, was John Redwood, MP, who wrote the book Public Enterprise In Crisis (1980). He was also the head of NM Rothschild's overseas privatisation.

From Wikipedia:

From 1974 to 1977, he was an investment analyst at Robert Fleming & Co. From 1977 to 1978, he was a Bank Clerk at N M Rothschild & Sons, becoming a Manager in 1978, Assistant Director in 1979 and a Director of the Overseas Division from 1980 to 1983. From 1986 to 1987, he was Overseas Corporate Finance Director and Head of International (non-UK) Privatisation.

Another Rothschild Bank director in public office was Margaret Thatcher's cabinet member Norman Lamont, in fact he was a Director at Rothschild Asset Management (Guardian UK):

Before entering Parliament he worked for NM Rothschild, the financial services firm, and became director of Rothschild Asset Management.

And on and on.

Russ Feingold, who co-sponsored legislation with Hillary Clinton (the Zimbabwe Democracy and Economic Recovery Act of 2001), which was intended to strengthen the Rothschild Bank founded De Beers, to get control over Zimbabwe's diamond fields - Zimbabwe has 20% of the world's known diamond reserves in the Chiadzwa and Marange diamond fields. De Beers used to have the global monopoly on the diamond trade, today they own 40% of the global trade.

Russ Feingold lost his seat, however he was rewarded with the position of "Special Envoy for the Great Lakes Region and the Democratic Republic of the Congo". A job that sounds very similar to Clinton friend, Maurice Tempelsman's US Honorary Council to Zaire. (Maurice Tempelsman used to be a director at De Beers - see above - as well as the owner/head of Lazare Caplan International Inc., the largest buyer of rough diamonds from De Beers.)

He also shacked up with Jackie O. after JFK was assassinated and she broke up with Onassis. Remarkable, because he was also closely associated with the murder of the Congo DRC (later Zaire's) first democratically elected head of government, Patrice Lumumba, in events that the late Ghanean President Kwame Nkrumah in 1965 described as Neocolonialism. Which is the use of managed 'democracies' of placeholder heads of state who are there only to serve the interests of the mining companies.

Check out:

Neo-Colonialism, the Last Stage of imperialism
Kwame Nkrumah 1965

http://www.marxists.org/subject/africa/nkrumah/neo-colonialism/

Introduction

THE neo-colonialism of today represents imperialism in its final and perhaps its most dangerous stage. In the past it was possible to convert a country upon which a neo-colonial regime had been imposed — Egypt in the nineteenth century is an example — into a colonial territory. Today this process is no longer feasible. Old-fashioned colonialism is by no means entirely abolished. It still constitutes an African problem, but it is everywhere on the retreat. Once a territory has become nominally independent it is no longer possible, as it was in the last century, to reverse the process. Existing colonies may linger on, but no new colonies will be created. In place of colonialism as the main instrument of imperialism we have today neo-colonialism.

The essence of neo-colonialism is that the State which is subject to it is, in theory, independent and has all the outward trappings of international sovereignty. In reality its economic system and thus its political policy is directed from outside.

Hi Nora,

There is a clear pattern from the corporatist DNC (Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild is a member) - if they live in a blue state, they are pro healthcare etc at home, but pro-Israel/pro-war abroad. And unfortunately pro-Israel also means protecting Israel's dependence on diamonds from (Rothschild Bank funded) De Beers. Finished diamonds are Israel's biggest single export, and as such considered a matter of national security. During the 20th century, upto 95% of the world's diamonds came from De Beers, and nearly all of De Beers' diamonds came from South Africa and Botswana. Of course Rothschild Bank also helped the British government buy the Suez Canal, so you can see what constitutes national security.

According to Keith Harmon Snow, on the connection between Russ Feingold and Lazare Kaplan Int/De Beers/Tempelsman Group's Maurice Tempelsman (who is the Son in Leon Tempelsman & Son):

Since at least 1996, the campaigns of Russ Feingold (D-WI), who co-sponsored the Senate version of the U.S. “Clean Diamond Act” passed in 2003 have been heavily funded by Leon Tempelsman & Son.

More on Xstrate chairman Julian Bond and Glencore chairman Simon Murray here. (Guardian UK Glencore and Xstrata's chief executives' links go back to university days)

(GUARDIAN UK) Former BP boss Tony Hayward named Glencore Xstrata chairman
Permanent appointment marks remarkable turnaround for executive who left BP in disgrace over Gulf of Mexico disaster

* The Guardian, Thursday 8 May 2014 17.49 BST

Tony Hayward

The former BP boss Tony Hayward has returned to the top ranks of the corporate world following his appointment as full-time chairman of Glencore Xstrata, the FTSE 100 commodity trading and mining group.

Hayward, who left the oil firm in disgrace following the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster, had served as acting chairman of Glencore over the past year, after the City veteran Sir John Bond was ousted from the board last May. However, the Local Authority Pension Fund Forum has urged investors to vote against Hayward's appointment because of Glencore's exclusively male board.

Peter Grauer, who chairs Glencore's nomination committee, said: "Over the last 12 months, Tony has provided exemplary leadership of the board and proved himself to be the outstanding candidate to take on the role permanently. We continue to look forward to harnessing his in-depth knowledge of the resources industry and of listed company governance to underpin the mandate given to him as chairman to lead the board in helping to deliver long-term, sustainable returns for shareholders."

The appointment marks an extraordinary rehabilitation for Hayward, who was forced out of BP in July 2010 after the Gulf of Mexico disaster – the biggest marine oil spill in history. He was vilified across America after he said "I want my life back" in the aftermath of the explosion that killed 11 people and devastated the livelihoods of many others.

Hayward, who had spent his entire career at BP, was quick to move on and helped launch an investment vehicle called Vallares to tap into Kurdistan's oil riches. Together with his business partner Nat Rothschild he bought Turkish-based oil firm Genel Energy and merged it with Vallares. There are questions about whether he will retain his role as chief executive of Genel, with media reports suggesting he could leave within a year.

Hayward began his comeback in the FTSE 100 world by joining Glencore's board as an independent director in April 2011 ahead of the company's flotation. As permanent chairman, he could help broker deals in the oil sector.

Investec analyst Marc Elliott said: "Oil seems to be a growing arm of the Glencore business and if they want to push and expand a bit more Tony's expertise can certainly help with that."

You really need to work on your headlines. All I see in the title is that I should fear anything that involves Albright, Soros, & the House of Rothschild -- there's no further content. If your purpose is to inform people who care about (say) Russian involvement in Nigerian oilfields or phone towers in Latvia or whatever (again, I'm unsure, but willing to chalk that up to my own denseness), you need to give those people a REASON to open the thread. It's literally Journalism 1-01.

And as for Journalism 1-02, you should learn more about the direct "call to action" rather than just posting a long footnoted gripe session. Let's say that I'm willing to call my Senator or write a letter to his office; for max effect I should keep it below 25 words, & maybe even a single effective phrase to express my concern(s) -- what would that BE?? You string together so many bits of data that I feel as though I'm standing two inches from Un dimanche après-midi à l'Île de la Grande Jatte (the classic Pointillist work): lots of pretty colored dots, but few blurry shapes & no overall design.

Tony, I have been online for decades. Don't you think I can spot a troll from miles away.

1) Your generally belligerent attitude. Completely undeserved and intended to stifle debate.

2) Your posts are completely void of content. And yet you criticize regular posters on style points? Form?

3) "All I see in the title" - no one cares what you 'see' or 'feel' in the title. This is the title of the post, now live with it.

In conclusion, this is not to engage you in a 'debate'/shouting match. It is strictly to tell you that I know what is going on.

Now go and bother someone else. Flagged.

Fareed Zakharia, of the New America Foundation which also has George Soros' son Jonathan Soros on it's board of directors is also headed by Trilateral Commission member Anne-Marie Slaughter. At the same time, he is giving a platform to Trilateral Commission co-founder Zbigniew Brzezinksi, and Lord Jacob 4th Baron Rothschild's and George Soros' business partner in Helios Towers Africa (here, here and here), Madeleine Albright.

And by the way, the Rothschild Bank owned part of the Baku-Batumi oil pipeline (also see here), which provided the world with 50% of it's oil in the early 1900s - a monopoly they would love to re-establish.

Something to keep in mind, when Lord Jacob Rothschild's business partner is making the case of attacking Russia.

Once you have a good theory, the more you look, the more evidence you uncover.

The World Bank - Rothschild Bank Connections

1) PERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS

James Wolfensohn, head of the World Bank, was named James, after his father's employer, James Armand de Rothschild.

Before James D. Wolfensohn became the head of the world bank, he was literally in business with Lord Jacob, 4th Baron Rothschild, in a company called J. Rothschild, Wolfensohn & Co.

Source: A Global Life: My Journey Among Rich and Poor, by James D. Wolfensohn.

" Meanwhile, after a fifteen year absence from the London banking scene, I returned to form a joint venture with my friend Jacob Rothschild. We called our enterprise J. Rothschild, Wolfensohn & Co., and our aim was to deliver our own personal brand of investment banking across Europe and in the newly opened markets of the former Soviet Union and Eastern Europe. As a business venture, J. Rothschild, Wolfensohn & Co. never really took off. The firm earned fees, did some deals in Russia, and eventually turned a profit, but we dissolved the London partnership in 1995, when I joined the World Bank.

If our venture achieved nothing else, for me its existence alone was significant. My connection and deep friendship with Jacob lives on, and he and his wife Serena, remain part of our lives. Today I share offices with Jacob in London, and he with me in New York."

2) POLICY

Rothschild Bank invented the privatisation process, and the World Bank carries out the privatisation process on every country in the world, no matter how bad for their economies.

Rothschild Bank: "The 1980s gave birth to the international phenomenon of privatisation. Rothschild was involved from the beginning and developed a pioneering role which spread out to more than 30 countries worldwide. "

In Thatcher's England, privatisation was conceptualised by John Redwood. Thatchers' handbook on privatisation, Public Enterprise In Crisis (1980) was written by NM Rothschild's Director of the Overseas Division, John Redwood, later a Tory MP. John Redwood later became NM Rothschild's "Overseas Corporate Finance Director and Head of International (non-UK) Privatisation."

From the official Rothschild family information site, Rothschild.info:

British Gas

1985 saw N M Rothschild & Sons win the 'beauty contest' to advise the British government on the sale of British Gas.

This was the most significant piece of privatisation work to be undertaken by N M Rothschild & Sons, pioneers in such business from 1971. Further advisory roles were taken with regard to the privatisation of British Steel and British Coal as well as the regional electricity and water boards. It would lead to business in over 40 countries worldwide.

Rothschild Bank:"Rothschild was instrumental in the privatisation programmes of the 1980s in the United Kingdom, which were forerunners of a worldwide trend."

From the Rothschild Bank's website:

Governments

Rothschild’s long history of working with governments dates back to the origins of our firm more than 200 years ago.

We are widely regarded as the adviser who best understands the needs of governments and the benefits of a discreet, long-term relationship.

Governments trust the high calibre of our advisory expertise and the impartiality and independence fostered by our pure advisory business model. We have been engaged by many government clients for assistance with a great variety of challenges.

Rothschild was instrumental in the privatisation programmes of the 1980s in the United Kingdom, which were forerunners of a worldwide trend. Likewise, at the height of the recent global financial crisis, a significant number of governments turned to us for our expert and trusted advice on recapitalising and restructuring a range of stricken industries, including the banking sector in Europe and the automotive industry in the United States.

Rothschild also assists governments with financial divestments and complex auction processes. We advised the Government of India on its US$22.7 billion auction of 3G and BWA spectrum and, in Australia, we advised the Queensland Government on its US$17.6 billion Asset Sales Programme.

For the benefit of civilisation:

- I can link the Rothschild Bank to the creation of Privatisation

They keep going on about their pioneering role on their website. They employed John Redwood as their director for Privatisation, wrote the book on Privatisation, "Public Enterprise In Crisis", and was a Tory MP under Margaret Thatcher.

- I can link the World Bank to the implementation of Privatisation worldwide

Privatisation is part of the World Bank's conditionalities, along with deregulation, 'free trade' (mainly no taxes, and tax free zones like Multi-Functional Economic Zones or MFEZ's, also called Shenzhen's after the city in China, which act as free ports within the state and economy), currency devaluation (which hits the middle class and anyone with savings or who gets paid in the local currency, causing instantaneous consumer price inflation).

- I can link the head of the World Bank to the head of the Rothschild family

Lord Jacob, 4th Baron Rothschild and World Bank head James D. Wolfensohn were in a joint venture, called J. Rothschild, Wolfensohn & Co. before James D. Wolfensohn became head of the World Bank.

Conclusion: Rothschild Bank practice has become World Bank policy.

Can anyone say: Corruption? Conflict of interest? Collusion? Elite capture?

Social Media Has Created the "Hive Mind" & Let It Loose Into America

Thom plus logo America has always been a racist country, but until recently (in the modern era) we didn't discuss it in "polite" company. Now, social media has created a "hive mind" among us, so the racism that was always there is clear and obvious. And Trump knows it, and is using it to connect with others in his part of the hive.
